Happy New Year!

Welcome 2015 :-) Today I'm linking up with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade for Currently 2015!
Listening: Watching the 2015 Winter Classic with my boys. The Rangers aren't in it this year... but that's ok (as long as the Capitals don't win!) Let's go Blackhawks!!

Loving: my new iMac! My parents surprised us this year with a beautiful 27inch iMac for Christmas! This prompted a much needed overhaul of our office. I finally cleaned up and organized all of the boys artwork and school stuff. Hung us some plastic pockets so we now have a place for homework, mail, and coupons (hopefully we can keep it all off the kitchen counters in 2015!). Next up are some curtains for the big slider and the continued organization of the hubby's side.
(My clever parents gave me this gift first. I am not as clever and could only come up with "cheese balls", lol!)

Thinking: It's about time to go fill my prescription and get some new specs. It's been 8 years and my prescription sunglasses have been hanging out in the Orlando airport since last February!

Wanting: I want to put away all our Christmas decorations, but I'm currently lacking the motivation to do so. :-)

Needing: After seeing the shirts I made for our Disney trip last February, a friend at work asked me to make some for her family's upcoming trip. I have Frozen and Star Wars designs planned out and just need to get to Michaels for more fabric paint. I can't wait to get started! Believe it or not, I actually enjoy making each stencil and cutting it out with my xacto knife. There is almost something calming about it.

YES to eating healthier in 2015! Santa brought me the new Skinnytaste cookbook :-)

MAYBE I'll step out of my fitness comfort zone this year? I would love to make it to more Zumba classes and maybe sign up for a 5k (that's a BIG maybe!)

I WISH I could devote more time to writing in 2015. I've always had a secret desire to write a novel (well I guess it's not so secret anymore!). I have so many ideas scratched out on my notepad. I would love to start developing them and see what happens!


  1. A 27 inch Mac?! What a great gift!

    1. I know right! My parents went above and beyond with this one!

  2. I need to get my Christmas decorations put away as well! Good luck on your fitness goals :)
    Kickin' it in Kindergarten

  3. I love how you created pockets to stay organized. I always have good intentions to keep all the papers that come into the house organized, but they all end up piled on my desk. Maybe something like this would help?! Thanks for the great idea. More Zumba sounds like fun! Let us know how your fitness goals go this year! Good luck!

    1. Thank you! Everything usually ends up piled on my desk and the kitchen island as well. Let's see how long these pockets last... School hasn't started back up yet! Good luck to you in the new year!
