Hello world! How was your New Years? How was your Christmas for that matter?
I’m a little sad that it is all wrapping up, and a little bit happy to be taking down the clutter, and a little bit excited to start putting up valentines. (too soon?)
Our little fam partied on New Years with some “china food” ( Isaac’s words), cake on my new cake stand, root beer, family wii time, and a family dance party to the Netflix King Julien’s New Years Countdown!
(right after this we told the boys they had to start dancing or else go to bed)
My resolution this year?
Operation Feel Fabulous!!! Or Operation Feel Awesome!! I can’t decide! (another resolution: work on decisiveness)
Wanna hear about it?
Well, there’s this blog that I have recently started following, and she always talks about making yourself feel awesome and I thought….waaaaait a minute. When was the last time I felt awesome?? I feel good. I feel bad. I feel tired. I feel happy. But Awesomeness seems to have left me behind.
So here’s how it works:
I’m dedicating 2015 to feel more awesome/fabulous, so that it will trickle down to my family and voila! Happy wife (mom) happy life!
Will taking vitamins daily (esp. vitamin D for we vampires in the pacific northwest) make me feel fabulous? You betcha! Down the hatch!
Will eating healthier make me feel healthier and more energetic so therefore more awesome? Sadly, yes. Bring on the veggies!
Yummy smelling lotion? Check!
Lots of candles to combat the darkness? Double check
A clean house? Probably.
A messy house because I was having fun that day doing something I’d rather do? Yeppers!
A yummy dessert with my sisters? Ooooooh yeah!
You see how flexible this is? Do you see how this is a resolution that I will actually want to keep?
And I can’t forget how great I feel when my marriage is running smoothly…..date nights on the calendar monthly!
Also my spiritual health….bible studies and reading plans!
Mental health?….time away from children, and time during the day to blog, read or use my brain!
You guys, I am so excited about this idea.
I’m so excited to start feeling awesome/fabulous (awesomely fabulous?) again.
Shall we check in with this resolution in a few months? Now, Christmas updates will have to wait for another day, I’m off to browse etsy.com because I’m preeeeety sure that 150 small gold heart decals will make me feel awesome.
