Hello 2014!

1 Jan

Happy New Year’s!!! I can’t believe 2013 has come and gone and we are already in 2014. I re-read what I wrote back in 2013 and laughed. I had 2 big things to accomplish and I can say that I really didn’t do that at all!

  • Working out:  That went well in the Spring and Summer but then I got pregnant and that went out the window. I had big plans this time around to workout through my pregnancy and I just could not do it. I FEEL every ache and pain this time around and sometimes walking too much makes me unable to really move around for a day or 2. But with that said, my job keeps me fit. I walk anywhere from 3-10 miles a day so at least I have that!
  • Make more time for us: Well we sort of did that. We never did get a baby sitter (can’t seem to stomach paying over $100 just for dinner and a movie out of the house) but that doesn’t mean things didn’t change. I think Kyler being older helped A LOT. Looking back, when they are so little and need every waking second of your time, you can’t help but feel that is all your life is about. But now that Kyler is older and her own little person, we have really had more time to feel back to normal. Now adding a 2nd little kiddo to the mix should make things interesting but we are more than excited and ready for the change!

2013 was an interesting year for me. If I had to rate it, it wasn’t one of my best years. 2012 was a high for us; just getting settled into our new home & bringing Kyler in the world. 2013 definitely had its ups and downs. It has been so much fun watching Kyler grow so that has been the highlight. The hardest thing I have had to deal with is losing my brother Craig back in February. Here we are 10 months later and it is something I think about constantly. It’s been rough.

I am really looking forward to 2014. I am ready to meet our new son, Hudson, who is due April 4th. I am ready to see what work has to bring. I am ready to see where I can take this blog. I am ready for it all! Kyler will be turning 2 in a couple of weeks, I will be 28 in May (sigh) and Chris will be hitting his mid-30s at 35 in August. Where is the time going?!?!

Happy 2014!!!

    2013 wasn’t our best year either, good thing we get a fresh start starting today! 😉 (by the way, I’m the one you made the nautical invitation for my son Miles a few months ago! I started a blog bc I was determined to post about my kids growing up like you do!) I hope this year brings you much joy with new baby boy. I have one of each- girl then boy. They’re 19 months apart and seriously the very best of friends. They go from playing with Barbies to cars within 5 minutes- so fun!! Happy new year!!
