C U R R E N T L Y

Good morning, beautiful friends! Today I am OFFICIALLY back in town and man, even though vacation was a blast it is good to be home. The cruise ended on Sunday and the rest of the family headed home, but Le Husband and I decided to extend our stay in NOLA a few more days and we enjoyed our extra time away. I will say it was sooooo nice sleeping in our own bed last night, man did I miss it, haha. Vacation time is always great, but there really is no place like home, right?

 Sorry for the secrecy, but I always get weirded out when I'm leaving for longer than a weekend. Luckily I was able to use the quiet time around the holidays to prep some posts, so I hope you enjoyed them if you stopped by last week. I'll be getting back to all your sweet comments today and hopefully will catch up with reading later this week.

Currently I'm…

resolving: to figure out my goals for 2016. I believe I have found my word, but am not sure about my fitness and personal goals yet. I don't want to set anything too lofty, but I also don't want to aim low. I'm taking my time like I did last year to make sure I get it right.

reading: lots of blogs. I'm playing catch up from my week away and it's fun seeing friends again!

anticipating: 2016 and all the big changes we have planned.

organizing: the apartment, my new planner, my work desk and my clothes. The New Year brings the organizer in me.

loving: my bed. After being gone for over a week it's nice to sleep in my own bed.

craving: fresh whole foods and homemade sugar cookies, random I know!

wanting: to kick butt teaching my first BODYPUMP class tomorrow. I'm excited and hope everyone likes me!

hoping: to find my flow for the year. I know things will rise and fall as they should, but I hope I can quickly get into a flexible routine. I also hope to be able to take on more substitution classes this month as well.

Yay for being back at home! Vacations are so fun, but I agree that no sleep is better than in your own bed. I can't wait to hear about your vacation...especially the NOLA part! I am headed there at the end of the month for the first time and curious to know what are the must dos while I am there. Happy New Year!

I agree with you on setting goals! I always make too many goals, but I also don't want to NOT make any goals! Sounds like you had a fun vacation!

Life with Lolo said...

The New Year makes me an organizing freak too, and I'm not even an organized person! I just love starting the year off fresh, clean and de-cluttered.

Woohoo for vacation, but I totally feel you on sleeping in your own bed!! I can't wait to hear all about your vacation!! It was so hard to try and keep up with reading blogs during the holidays so I just kind of stayed away until after and playing catch up is hard, but fun!!

It's always sad when vacation is over, but man--coming home is the best! I am dying to try a BODYPUMP class, so I think you should come out to Hawaii and do one ;)
