New Year's Rezzies

Well its that time of year again... The decision to make any New Year's resolutions, and the decision to actually keep them...

Do you make any resolutions, and do you keep them? That is the questions!

Here are my top 10 resolutions for 2012!

1. Buy a unique piece of furniture for my home! I am saving my pennies for the lucky chance I find an amazing vintage dining table. I want to pair it with some new modern dining chairs!

Although I love this white dining table, I am hoping to find a dark wood table and white chairs!
2. Have one of my Dad's photographs printed on a large canvas for my walls! My dad is an amazing wild life photographer. He recently went to Africa with a photographers group. They camped out in the wilderness to be as close as possoble to the action. He got a ton of amazing shots, and all sorts of great stories to go along with each one. This is one of my favorites below.

3. Buy a cool piece of jewelry! If you know me well, you know I am a lover of all things accessories! I use to make and sell jewelry before I got into making hair accessories, but now I just make pieces for myself. I would love to indulge and buy myself a nice pair of earrings. I have been admiring these beauties from an etsy shop in the Netherlands.

4. Stop biting my nails when I get stressed!!!! A bad habit that I have done since a toddler... I reward myself with gorgeous polish!

5. Wear more leopard print! Spruce up the old wardrobe!!

6. Cook more make ahead meals... I love to cook, but with two kids and activities, I often find myself struggling last minute trying to come up with a dinner plan!

7. Do something cute with my hair that is easy to style! I have been growing my hair long, but it often ends up in a messy updo or ponytail. I would like to get it texturized for some added volume! P.S. need to find a new hair dresser as mine as moved... Bummer!

8. Download a bunch of upbeat songs that make running more fun! I hate running... Like really hate running, but recently bought a gym pass. The gym has this amazing track that makes me motivated to run!

9. Get another tattoo! I got my first tattoo almost 5 years ago now. I have been itching to get another one,and found one I am in love with! Friends of ours own a tattoo shop so I know I will be in good hands!
10. Buy more fresh flowers! I love how my house looks and smells with fresh flowers in my little vintage floral vases. I made it a New Year's rezzie to buy a bouquet of fresh flowers once a month. If you cut the stems short, the flowers last longer. Also, add one drop of bleach to the water to help ward off the bacteria that grows in the water and kills the flowers faster!

More than anything else, I want to dedicate 2012 to just enjoying life. Stop sweating the small stuff, sit back and take it all in, imagine with my kids, and spend even more time laughing with my husband! Life is a beautiful thing!

Happy New Year Everyone! Wishing you all a hugs full of happiness!
