Confession: I adore the turn of the new year. I love planners, flair pens, setting goals and a yearly reminder to dream big! This year, the new year brings goals I set in August to a close. Here is my accountability post.
Buy zero new clothes until January unless needed.
UPDATE: I did okay on this goal. I bought three things that weren’t a need, but two of which I had gift cards for. I feel like it wasn’t strict with myself, but I did well! I also realized how much I stress shop for clothes. 🤣
Start working out!
UPDATE: I started and completed Morning Meltdown with @robin.mccollum29 (the best, positive coach ever) I am so proud of myself and learning that the scale isn’t the biggest indication of success. I feel stronger, lost inches, and feel more comfortable and capable in my own skin than I have in a long time.
No coloring my hair until January.
UPDATE: I did it! I’m going to continue this and see if I can get back to my natural color.
Make enough on TPT to pay for Netflix.
UPDATE: Pretty close most months. My TPT store hasn’t been my focus and I switched to Disney Plus. 🤷🏽♀️
I wanted one brand rep opportunity in Insta!
UPDATE: I’ve had three. These made me so nervous, but I went for it! I still feel honored and surprised each time.
My BIGGEST goal!
I also got my @donorschoose project and Bucket List goal of attending @getyourteachon University funded! ⭐️
I hope to keep going and growing in 2020! This is the conclusion of my August-January goals and now it’s time to set new goals for the new decade. What are your goals? Give me some ideas!
Happy Holidays! Thank you so much for supporting my fledgling blog. I love you all and there is nothing you can do about it!
Here is my Christmas gift to you...I have partnered with Vooks to tell you about their wonderful video books. Vooks not only creates beautiful moving pictures to go with well know titles, they are are always ad free. After showing my son at home I found the book he was reading pulled out from his library. It. does. not. get. any. better.
Well, actually it does. As a thank you to all of the incredible teachers who are educating and inspiring children everywhere Vooks is offering a FREE FIRST YEAR exclusively to all school teachers and homeschool educators! The best part is that it takes no payment information up front! I hope you love it as much as I do!
This year I wanted to make something with my toddler to gift everyone for Christmas. I didn't want to make cookies or bake, so somehow I landed on making homemade bath bombs. When I was pregnant my aunt sent me some with a quilt for my son. It was such a treat. Thus started my mission. I did a lot of research and this is what I landed on.
Make your Own
Here are the ingredients that I used. I linked what I could on Amazon (as an Amazon associate I get a small amount for qualifying purchases, but it costs you the same! ! Win-win!) I doubled this recipe and got about 30 bath bombs!
Voila! My son loved this and can't wait to hand them out at Christmas. We even tried one out...just to be safe! ;)
What you're in for...
Here you will find my ramblings of motherhood, teaching, & life while like many I try to balance it all.
