Hi friends! Only one more day ’til Friday and that’s always good news!  I see we’re finally at the end of the longest month ever, and we sure packed a lot of content into these last 30 days!  I always like to start the new year with some reflections, so I recapped our 2018 home decor, your fashion favoritestop organization tips and of course a run down of our fitness challenges!


Get Fit Done

January marked a major accomplishment where something I had only dreamed of last year became a reality when we launched our fitness eBook, Get Fit Done.   Together with my friend and fitness expert, Cari Shoemate, we combined our talents and poured our hearts into this comprehensive 128-page Guide and we couldn’t be more proud of how it turned out!

Thank you so very much to everyone who has already purchased it and for those of you who are about to.  You know who you are and I’m giving you that not-so-subtle nudge that we want you to join us! 😉

We’ll be starting Week 1 together on Monday!


The name for the Fitness Guide came from a play on GSD, and you know that that means!  The beginning of the year always starts with getting everything in order and refreshed.  If you need motivation to get it all done, I shared my tips and how I’m working on minimizing.

During Christmas Break this year, I made a point to organize the kids’ paperwork and it feels so good to have everything in one place and know where that place is!

The first LOVES of the year are especially easy – it’s basically what I love from what Santa brought! 😉

I shared my travel must-haves early in the month as my goal is to take more quick, easy trips this year!  I’d love to hear your recommendations for a warm Spring Break destination with the kids.  Our Spring Break is in early March, so it’s still pretty chilly here in Houston.

I love that the beginning of the year gets to be the “FIRST” of everything and my first Dressing Room post was a fun one too!

Our weather this month has been a crazy mix of warm and cold, with the cold in the lead lately.  On those days, this peacoat has kept me both warm and stylish!  It’s a great value at only $85, normally $195.

Have a great day, friends!
