Happy New Year - 2014!

It's a new year and an opportunity for another chance at old resolutions! :)

First, lets review how I did with my 2013 resolutions:

1. Take More Pictures - Mid-year I dropped and broke the camera I bought on black Friday in 2012 (to take more pictures in 2013), so things slowed down in the summer, but overall I think I well.  Therefore....

2. Blog More Often - 20 blog posts in 2012, 18 in 2013, and my last blog post in 2013 was in July!!!

3. New Recipes - (2 each month)  I tried 10 new recipes by July and know I tried more after that, so...

4. Purge - I have rocked this resolution.  I still have some stuff to go through, but overall I made some money at a yard sale and donated lots of stuff.  I am also changing my habits and trying not to keep everything "in case" I need it one day.

5. Read More - 25 books in 2013??? Who picked that number?!  But I did read more books in 2013 than 2012... by 4 whole books! So I give myself 1/2 point for that.

6. Become Healthy - I started Weight Watchers in June and lost some weight.  Of course with the holidays, I fell off the wagon and the wagon ran over me... but back on the wagon!  I didn't add too much exercise, but did lose some weight the healthy way... so another 1/2 point :)

7. Add Something New - Hmm... new things in 2013: I went to California for the first time, volunteered at the Color Run, took an online photography class (which was "eh"), and threw a surprise party for my dad.

Now onto 2014!!

1. Keep Taking More Pictures 

2. Blog More Often (and past July! haha)

3. Read More books in 2014. (Friend me on Goodreads!!)

4. Send out Birthday cards to friends and family.

5. Create a Vision Board... just because I think it'd be fun! :)

6. Step out of my comfort zone and take chances... what will that bring?!

(....and of course lose weight, but that's every year, so why add that to the list?!)
I hope all of your hopes and dreams come true in 2014!!

  1. Some good resolutions here! I especially like the last one. Getting out your comfort zone is important and I believe it is something that we all need to do in order to get more out of life. This is something that I too am working on and I know that it's not necessarily going to be easy. At the moment I am working on being uncomfortable because doing stuff outside the comfort zone will mean doing stuff that feels uncomfortable which is why I have devised a challenge. I know this might sound crazy but I am going to be keeping my underwear in a wedgie for a day and not allowing myself to adjust. I have written more about the challenge on my blog so feel free to check it out.
