Ahh I cannot believe 2015 is coming to an end and we are getting ready to celebrate New Years Eve and welcome 2016! With a new year, comes new resolutions. I'm not one to usually make resolutions, but this year I felt like I wanted to. There are things I would love to work on and maybe putting them in writing will motivate me to really follow through!
My number one goal or resolution for 2016 is to find a better work/life balance. Sloan and Co. has become so much bigger than I ever imagined and while I am so incredibly thankful, my work often comes at the expense of my family. I'm a stay at home mama, but I also feel the need to have something for myself and SAC has really fulfilled that need. I have already started making some changes and I am really excited for the future of SAC!
2. LIVE IN THE MOMENT/APPRECIATE THE SMALL THINGS
I know when my babies are grown and I'm reminiscing about what our life was like, I'm not going to remember what clothes they were wearing or what things we had. I really want to focus on the small moments of joy with my girls and be able to just live in those moments without being distracted by things that don't really matter. I'm not saying I'm never going to buy a ridiculously cute (and overpriced) bonnet or stay up late searching for the PERFECT birthday dress, but I am going to work on focusing on what's really important: my family and the time I spend with them!
3. GET HEALTHY!
You guys, postpartum has not been as kind to me the second time around. I basically use breast feeding as an excuse to eat and drink anything and the pounds are not just falling off this time! If I'm being totally honest, I want to feel better about myself and I'd love for all of my clothes to fit again! Walking into my closet these days is kind of depressing! And outside of being vein, I want to set a healthy example for my girls and have more energy to run around with them! I want exercise to become a regular part of my life again, to cook healthy meals, and to drink more water. It all sounds so doable... I need to get motivated! Let's go Marisa!!
Three resolutions seems like plenty and I want to actually stick to these so I better leave it at that.
I'm super excited for New Years Eve this year! We're heading to our friends house for a fancy (kid friendly) dinner! We'll be home by bedtime, but there will be plenty of time for noisemakers and silly NYE hats :). Oh and champagne! Lots of champagne! I am so excited to party with my girls and the hubs. I hope you all have a fun and safe New Years Eve as well and WELCOME 2016 (I know you're going to be a good one!)!!!
And because I'm trying to make sure my children are the most festively dressed people on the planet...
