Welcome to 2015!  While we still have until October 21st to get the hover board ready (yes, we are those kind of nerds…), I feel like this is going to be an amazing year.

I don’t know if you noticed or not, but we have a new banner. That’s right, Florida is gone and Kentucky is officially home to Susie and her family.

Between traveling to see family, shopping, baking, wrapping, moving etc, we were busy during our time away.  Don’t worry, we took lots of pictures.  Next December, you’re in for a treat!

Now the Christmas trees are down, the elves have gone home and we’re all ready to take on some new challenges.  We have some pretty exciting things in store for 2015.  New projects, fun recipes, a few parties, some great tips on eating clean on a budget and loads more!  If you haven’t signed up for our emails, now is a great time.  You don’t want to miss out on anything!

Do you do New Years resolutions?  We thought we would list out of few of ours, to give you a little glimpse into what you may be seeing in the next few months.


Normally I start a resolution…and well that’s about it. This year I’m hoping you readers will motivate me to complete this one resolution:  To finish at least 3 fairly major projects. 
Getting my bare walls or outdated walls updated. 
Finishing the family room in our completely unfinished basement. 
Planting a garden…and keeping it alive. 


There are plenty of things I could put on the list… But for now I’m going to stick with something that I have to accomplish to keep from going crazy!
I need to get more organized. A major step to this is to Downsize and Declutter.  I know they really go hand in hand. Whenever you move you realize just how much stuff you have. The Army packed us up so I really didn’t get to “purge” as I packed.  Now I am trying to do it as I unpack.

What are your New Years resolutions?
