Happy new year friends! Did you do anything fun to celebrate last night?! Like most of this winter break, we’ve been staying in and taking it easy, so it was an early night for us. I will say that I’m so looking forward to 2019 and have a feeling that it’s going to be a milestone year for many of us.
In 2018, I spent a lot of time digging deeper and learning and growing and I want to continue to do that in 2019. My heart and mind is full of intentions for the new year and I’m still getting a grip on how to piece it all together and start making goals out of it all.
The exciting news is that my fitness eBook is almost ready to release into the world! Cari and I have been hard at work on it behind the scenes and we shoot the photos for it next week! After that, we just need to insert the photos into the book and make minor edits. Our goal is to make this book useful and effective so that you can reach your fitness goals, look amazing and feel great! Won’t that be an awesome way to kick off 2019?!
If you want all the fitness updates, be sure to subscribe to my blog and weekend newsletter! I’ll be offering an early discount code to my subscribers! Let me know in the comments if you’re excited for this!!
Also, I’m entering the new year with a fresh, new do! I chopped about 6 inches off my hair yesterday and it feels amazing!
Here’s the before!
December was a fun month and here’s a look back at what we were up to.
How did you survive December? I shared 6 tips that helped me this year! These kiddos were the biggest help of all though!
If you’re looking for a fun party idea with your girlfriends, might I suggest a Favorite Things Party?! We put together our 3rd Annual party this year and it was sooooo much fun. I know some readers have done one at Valentines Day or during the summer because December can be so hectic!

Around the House
We kept our holiday decor low key this year, it’s fun sometimes to just take your Christmas decorations and repurpose them in new spaces!
I shared James’ room all made over into his Houston Astros Baseball room.
Many of the after-Christmas sales are even better now that the new year is here.
And last but not least, here’s what Christmas 2018 looked like with a feisty 2 year-old and sweetheart 8 year-old.
