Good Bye 2017, Hello 2018!

Hey friend and Happy New Year! Did you think that I totally fell off the face of the earth? I'm sorry for my radio silence over here the past two weeks. We have been Christmas-ing like no other! I plan to have a recap of our  Christmas, which I think was the best one yet, later this week! 

Today I'm going to share with you my top 5 posts from 2017 and share my goals for the new year!

F I V E - Disney World - In March Jack and I went to Disney and I recapped the first part of our trip in this post.

F O U R - Finding Grace in Motherhood - I got real with y'all in this post and shared my struggles as a mama and how I am learning to give grace!

T H R E E - Day in the Life - Just like me, ya'll love to be nosey! I shared a day in our life. I plan on doing another one soon!

T W O - My Skin Cancer Journey - I opened up and shared with ya'll how I got melanoma when I was in my early twenties.

O N E - Christmas Gift Guide- For Kids - Looks like you all love a gift guide as much as I do, and one for kids was the most popular!

These were just a few of the top posts I had in 2017 and I'm looking so forward to sharing more with you in 2018!

I have set a few goals for myself for the upcoming year. If you follow me on instagram you know that I posted yesterday that my theme for the year is "simplify/declutter". I am going to try so hard to keep things simple. My mom tells me that I am a hoarder so I am trying really hard to stop that. Meaning, throwing all the things away. Donating what I don't use anymore.

My goals for 2018:

Work on my health- I hate dieting, I am horrible at it. So I am not going to even pretend that I"m going on a diet. I am however going to be much more mindful of what goes in my mouth and how much I am eating. I am also going to get back to working out. My hope is to get up before the boys workout and ride our Peloton bike at least 3 mornings a week, and get back to going to barre 2-3 mornings a week. I always feel so much better when I'm in a workout routine and I have been horrible about it for months. So it's time!

Organize- I want to go through the boys closets and get them organized and cleaned out, donate what they don't wear and list this that I want to sell!

Plan- My new planner is ready to go and I am going to really use it this year. I get in a bad habit of using it for a month and never opening it again. not this time! I want to also get better about planning out my blog posts and get ahead!

So just a few of the goals that I hope to accomplish and follow through with this year!

Did you set any goals for yourself?


  1. Love your goals for 2018! I’m with you on eating better (and being more mindful about it), organizing and planning! Let’s keep each other accountable!

  2. Love your posts, especially the one about melanoma. I think that helped/ is helping so many more people than you will ever realize.

  3. New follower......Happy New Year


  4. Happy New Year! I love your goals for this year!

  5. I am going to be cheering you on all year long. YOU CAN BE HEALTHY! YOU CAN LOSE THAT EXTRA PADDING ;) I am proud of you for even putting it out there for us to support you with.

  6. I love your goals! I LIVE out of my planner and we also have a "family" calendar on the inside of our pantry that we can write events for the month so Garrett and I always know what's going on each week and are on the same page. That helps us a lot!
