If you are anything like me then the New Year really excites you. A new year always brings so much promise and hope. A time to start fresh and get things done. I am really not a resolutions girl. Why make resolutions that you break and then beat yourself up about it?? I like to make life changes.
This year most importantly I want to be more thankful and grateful. I am bad about complaining and wishing for things. I want to savour my life, each moment, most importantly all the little things and know that my life is good.
I also want to work on being a better mom, wife, friend, daughter and sister. I need to be less selfish and more selfless.
This year I also plan on accomplishing alot of house projects. I think you all know I am lazy when it comes to projects but this is my year to get some stuff done. I plan on doing one project a month- lets not get too crazy right? Here is my list I am writing it down here to hold my self accountable!
1) Finish Gallery Wall with Family Photos for Hallway
2) Paint Family Room and Hallway
3) Paint Hall Bathroom- This involves attempting to paint the tile as well
4) Paint Front Door Interior Black
5) Get up to date with all my photos- print them and put in books
6) Mount TV in Bedroom
7) Organize all my jewelry
8) New Light Fixture for Sterling’s room
9) Paint Hutch in Dining Room
10) Recover Wingback Chairs
11) Clean and Organize our Garage- it is one hot mess
12) New Coffee Table and Ottomans for Den
So there you have it a few life changes, nothing crazy- hopefully I can stick with my plan.
We had such a fabulous NYE Monday. This is our third year of hosting a little party with our friends and their kids. Always a good time. Our Mason tradition each year is we burn our Christmas tree- out with the old and in with the new. Our best friends from Raleigh also came in town for the weekend and we had a blast with them! Here are a few pictures from our New Years.
While we are on the topic of New Years and new beginnings, please go to Earthfare asap and pick up this salad. It is called the Energy nut salad and it was amazing!! I have officially started my New Years Detox.
On another completely random note my favorite Christmas gift was this Missoni scarf my mom surprised me with. Usually I like to pick out all my gifts but this was a total surprise. It is my first infinity scarf and I am hooked. I have honestly worn it everyday since I got it. It looks cute with everything!
Good news for you ladies the scarf is onsale right now at ShopBop for 60% off. And you can get an additional 20% til midnight tonight with code EXTRAOFF. Such a steal for a Missoni piece!
It comes in these other two colors as well.
You must check out my girl Caycee’s blog today. She is hosting her first giveaway and it is a great one with Tiny Prints!
Happy First Thursday of 2013!
