Here is what I have been up to!
 
What a week.
Sunday night I came down with the stomach bug that
is going around town like wild fire. I stayed in bed all day Monday
finally surfacing that evening to attempt some BRAT food.
Tuesday I put together my pages for last week and got the blog link up.
Wednesday was an ordinary day with my nephews and Jordan got to
have a friend over after school.
Thursday was more of the same.
Jordan and Josh got a game in before bed.
Friday there was no school.
Jordan and I joined up with a group to go to lunch at
Buffalo Wild Wings and trampoline Zone.
Saturday was a super busy day. Into bham for Jordan's
game which they lost :( Moving up a grade is a lot harder.
Then a quick store run to get game day food for Sunday.
That evening Josh and I had date night with some friends
of ours. We got food, drinks and went to see American Sniper.
Sunday was a BIG day in our house!
The Seahawk game was on!
We had family and friends over for a taco feast.
What a game the Seahawks put on!
Honestly I accepted they weren't going to the super bowl.
Lets just say the house was very LOUD that day!

Here is what I have been up to!
I finished week 1  & 2 this week.
I had week one pretty much done but was trying to decide
how I want to do journaling this year. I hate my handwriting and am
not a big journal writer so I am going to try typing them up each week.
Here are my layouts. I need to work on my photo taking of them.

Week 1
This was a short very low key week.
The kids are still on Christmas break, recovering from
a late night and we had our first snow! Not much
but some!



 

Week 2
The kids returned to school! Yahoo!
I love them to pieces but two weeks home is long enough.
Especially during these cold dreary days where we can't
go outside as much. We end up being pretty lazy.
This week was a pretty busy week with lots going.
I had my nephews almost everyday for the day or just
to get them on the bus.  Jordan had practice and his first
basketball game moved up to the 3rd grade division.
We had friends stay with us for the weekend, I held
a craft get together with local moms (a first for me),
we deep fried a turkey and had family and friends
over for the Seahawks game! Go Seahawks!!

I am so excited to start fresh with a new album!!
I have yet to get through more then a few months so
I am hoping with having you awesome ladies checking in with
me each week this will be the year I will complete an entire album!
I am hoping to not rely on the project life app but I know there will be some
weeks that will be crazy and it will be what will work.
 
 Here is my title page!
I put it together pretty quick except for one last card.
I asked for help on the Project Life Junkie Facebook
and got so many ideas. I had to walk away from it for
a day and then I came back and made the last card!
I took a pic of it too!
I printed a card I made on word. Then added matching paper and ribbon.
The finishing touch was the four shiny jewels one for each of us.
The green polka a dot card is from the kiwi kit.
All the other cards are from the midnight kit.

Getting our jump on!

With all the excitement of Christmas over and the weekend to recover
we were ready to get out Tuesday to burn off energy.
We decided to try out the new indoor trampoline place
that just opened last week Trampoline Zone!
Jordan got to choose a friend to come along. Also my long time
best friend is in town for the holidays so I invited her along too!
She has two younger kiddos so I decided why not bring my nephew
Cohen along too! He loves jumping on his small trampoline at home.
These kids all absolutely loved this place! It is pretty awesome!
We first purchased one hour but the kids were more then excited to
stay another hour! They had dodge ball games which Jordan loved,
basketball hoops, foam pits, little kid are and more!
We will definitely be back!

Goals for 2015

I love the start of a new year.
It happens to fall at the perfect time.
The laid back, busy, exciting time of Christmas
and break is over. I am usually dragging on doing a lot
of things and winter is usually starting to have its effects on.
The New year gives me a fresh chance to start new and get myself
motivated again at least for a month or two.
I like making a list goals.
How long I stick to them varies.
Each year my list looks pretty close to the same.
Here is this years list of goals!
 
Time management
I feel that everything I do and want to get out of life revolves around
these two words. I like to throw out there isn't enough time but honestly
there is I just am not using it right.  If I can master this all my other
goals should be successful! I love planning so I am going to put together
a daily routine for myself. It will have all the things I want to do or
get done on it and if I stick to it I should feel quite accomplished at the
end of the day.
 
So what things would I like to do in my time?
Well let me share
 
daily devotions and journal time
exercise 3 to 5 days a week
menu plan and grocery shop for cleaner eating
keep up on household chores
disconnect and reconnect as a family
keep up with blogging
Actually complete a full year of project life
learn one new thing
get out of my comfort zone and host a monthly craft day with local mom group
Start making our house a home with help of Pinterest
and if there is time and energy
declutter and get organized
 
That in a more brief way are my goals for this year!
I am sure you will hear about my success and failures
as you follow along with my day to day life here on the blog!
 
I also today joined bloglovin' and you can follow me there

Christmas day

I was so surprised Christmas day when the kids didn't get up until 8:30am.
I then found out that Josh changed Jordan's clock by two hours haha.
They needed the sleep anyways!
While Josh and I lay in bed for a few minutes to wake up the kids
went down to look through their stockings. Then it was time for
presents! I set my camera up on the tripod and took pics with my
remote for half of present opening and then took it off half way through.
I actually made it in a few pics!
 
















 
After presents I made coffee and started making our traditional coyotes.
My mom makes the dough for us each year and delivers it! 
We are spoiled :)
 

 
After breakfast Jordan was super excited to go try out his new goal post!
 


 
We relaxed for a bit around the house before heading to my parents
house for more presents and food!
 




 
 
 
We headed home to relax for a bit before bed.
The holidays can be exhausting.
