Hopes & Plans || 2015 New Years Resolutions {Link Up}

Welcome to the "Hopes & Plans" link up! Any hopeful or goal-oriented post is welcome! It can be your life's dreams, aspirations, monthly goals or simply your chore list. Share with us! I hope for this to be a place where we can come to be inspired and motivated by the things other people have in the works. The possibilities are endless! Most things in life begin by first having a hope and then some kind of plan.


I saw this resolution/goal guide by Lauren Conrad and really liked it! I think it is a great way to incorporate both wishes and remedies into your new year. Using her guide as my own, here are my hopes & plans for 2015...

Go on more dates with Kyle. || Looking back on 2014, I would say we went out (sans baby) mayyyybe 3 times. We can and should do better than that!

Return to a healthy weight for my body after delivering our baby boy! || My own fitness was not a priority after Mallory was born. I think that may have been a mistake. I do so much better, both physically and psychologically when I'm fit. I can find a way to balance my parenting goals with my personal fitness/health goals. (More on this after baby woody is born.) 

Breastfeed our son for at least 6 months then, however long he wants to after that. || I loved breastfeeding Mallory and hope to be able to give baby woody the same start in life. Although, I'd really appreciate it if he caught on quicker than his sister did. ;)

Save more money. || Ok. That's kind of vague. Maybe I should just say "spend less money." ;) We would love to see our student loans vanish in a hurry...

Visit North Pole, AK. || Oh yeah! Why wouldn't we want to go to a tourist trap of Christmas-y goodness? I don't like any of our children would forgive us if we didn't. ;)

Clean up my diet. || This goal kind of holds hands with my "healthy weight" goal. I think if we eat out less frequently and incorporate more fruits and veggies into our diet we'd be in a good place since our choices aren't terrible to begin with. Guess I need to bone up on my cooking skills. ;)

Organize the linen closet. || I don't know that I've paid any attention to this closet since we moved in and I tossed everything in there. It's baaaad.

Own these. || Clearly I have trouble pulling the trigger on this purchase. Come spring, they are mine!

Take yoga classes again. || Yoga was something I really enjoyed pre-Mallory. I think it is possible to find an hour or two a week to sneak away to a yoga class. Right? Maybe? I hope so. 

There you have it. Short, sweet and simple! 

Well, I hope so anyway. 

Cheers to 2015!
