Let's Do This, 2017.

Happy New Year, everyone!! I hope you all are feeling as refreshed and hopeful about a new year as I am. January is honestly one of my favorite times of the year. Sure, I hate the cold and snow and lack of sunshine- but the feeling of a new beginning is just the best. I'm going to cling to my motivation while it lasts and try to really kickstart some things this month.

We had Jared's siblings and significant others over for NYE. Just a low-key evening of tasty food, Hedbanz and a little Disney SceneIt as well. I don't know how in the world we managed to stay up as late as we did, but it was fun ringing in the new year with family. Some crazy people in our neighborhood were shooting off GIANT fireworks and I was shocked they didn't wake up T, but it was kinda' cool to see them right outside our window.



The past week has just been so much fun. T has been cuter than ever- sorry, it's true. The stage he is at right now is so darn fun and adorable; I can't get enough of him! It was so nice having Jared off work for a few days in a row and getting to spend lots of quality time together as a family. There have been lots of lazy/pajama days around here but we've also been getting some things done around the house.
First family photo of 2017! ;)



My big organization project I did over the past couple of days makes me feel so much better. I went through allllll of the clothes T has outgrown (a ridiculous amount) and sorted and bagged and boxed 'em up for storage. I had just been tossing them all in a container with no rhyme or reason and it was stressing me out so I'm glad they are in order now. Let's just say, we better have at least one more boy because these clothes need put to use again one day!

I'm excited to really rock this month and get the ball rolling on all these goals and ambitions I have for 2017. This past year was honestly one of the best years of my life- so I don't know how this year can top it, but I hope it will! Let's do this!

  1. Sweet T! I love that you are getting to enjoy such a fun stage with him. Sweet boy. I have been wondering how to best organize clothes. My sister in law gave me a huge tub of clothes with all different sizes ranging from 3 months to 3T. I can't decide what my best option is to organize and store them all. Any tips on that one? Happy 2017 friend. I know 2016 completed your sweet little family but I have no doubt 2017 is going to be amazing for y'all.

  2. I spent New Year's Day night playing Head's Up with a few friends and I had forgotten how much fun that type of game is. We were laughing so hard by the end of it. Lately the trend around here has been to set off fireworks between 8:00 - 10:00 so that kids can see them and people aren't setting them off at midnight, which is kind of silly but also kind of nice since it's made NYE much more of a family celebration.

  9. Your New Years Weekend sounds a lot like our New Years weekend, and sometimes a lazy weekend at home is just what you need. That's awesome that you got all of T's old clothes organized too! I would have been stressing out as well.

  11. Your first family picture of 2017 is the best - I love the intense look on T's face and the fact that he has his arms out and on both you and Jared!

  13. I am such a New Year's cliche too -- eating healthy, exercising, waking up early! I know people laugh at that but I figure even if it doesn't all last all year, at least I'm starting off strong! Happy new year to you!

  14. Oh my gosh, he looks just like you in that family photo! Adorable.

    I don't usually get the cliche' New Years motivation but I totally did this year. I even bought a scale.. It's weird and slightly embarrassing, but hey, may as well make use of it right!?
