New Years Aspirations

I can honestly say I've probably never kept a New Years Resolution. I think they are kind of tough to upkeep! Rarely are they just simple goals that are positive things to work towards, they are extreme life changes. Lose weight, stop bad habits, etc. But with it being a new year, I really wanted to come up with a few goals for myself. Things to work towards, and things to help improve life as a whole.

Here is my list of New Years Aspirations:
1. Learn to stop beating myself up over silly things.
2. Show my husband how much I adore him everyday.
3. Set up my Etsy shop.
4. Take more pictures of everyday life.
5. Increase my knowledge and skill as a stylist.
6. Grow closer to my Savior, and to the people in my life.
7. Travel somewhere. ANYWHERE.

I am excited about my list! I'm going to save it so I can see where I'm at when it is almost 2012 (YIKES).

Do you guys make any resolutions?

See you later!

I'm back! (Hopefully for good!)

OK, I am finally ready to begin again in the world of blogging!

Over the past few weeks I have:
1. Found a new apartment.
2. Packed up the old one in only a week or so.
3. Moved to our new apartment in downtown Seattle. I'm in LOVE.
4. Unpacked and got settled in.
5. Went to quite a few Christmas parties.
6. Did some extremely last minute Christmas shopping.
7. Walked about 534596 miles. City life will do that to you.
8.Celebrated Christmas.

So here I am, staring out my window at the insane view we have (see below), and I am so excited to be back!

 Moving is such insanity. I don't enjoy it one bit. Yet, I've moved about 5-6 times in 4 years. You would think I'd learn my lesson, huh?

The year is almost over, and I find that so crazy. I know, I know, who doesn't? I just could not keep up with how fast the year went. Christmas was great. I'm blessed to have Ian's family to celebrate with. I have fun things planned for blogging over the next few weeks, and I cannot wait for what is to come.

Stay tuned for posts coming your way soon.

I know, I know. Way to be lame and not update my blog in two weeks! But, I have a good reason. I promise.

On Wednesday, the hubs and I are moving to Seattle. We are excited beyond belief. And needless to say, packing is a pain in the rear. We found out we got the apartment last Monday, and have been going crazy trying to get ready to move. Funny how you realize how much stuff you have only when you are required to move it all! Our new place is AWESOME.  It is in the heart of Seattle, and we have an awesome view of the Space Needle. It's small, but hey, location makes up for that!

Anyways, I have big plans to be a much more regular blogger. I just have to get all ready to move, and then I will get on it. I'm also finally opening my etsy shop in January. I am so excited! I've been selling headbands at work, and people seem to like them.

New Years Resolution: Etsy shop and blogging success!

Be back soon!
