Welcome to 2015!!

Happy New Year!!

I am really enjoying my new year' eve this year!!  By 7:00 we had both of our babies in bed!!  LOVE IT!!

Tonight I am linking up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for her awesome monthly linky!!

Listening - I have quite a few episodes backed up on my DVR, so I am trying to catch up on Revenge.  We have quite a few other shows on DVR too, but my husband said he's about to go to sleep too!  Welcome 2015, everyone in my house may be asleep by 8:30!!

Loving - I have been LOVING Christmas break!  It has been so nice to sleep in, eat all day, and wear my sweats all day!!  I LOVE IT!!

Thinking - I really need to clean my house!  We came home from my parent's house and just dumped almost everything.  We were able to clean up some things, and pack up all of Christmas, but now we have all of the new toys to find homes for, and old toys to find new homes.  :)

Wanting - I think almost everyone agrees that we would like one more week.  Despite my want, I know we will be back at it on Monday!

Needing - I am in need of some new recipes.  We are making one of our 2015 goals to only eat out once a month.  I need some new recipes to be able to make this a success.  We eat a lot of meals in the crock pot because both my husband and I teach.  If it doesn't come out of the crock pot, or can't be ready in five minutes we don't tend to cook on school nights.

Yes - My biggest goal for 2015 is to be present!!

Maybe - I have a goal weight that I would love to get down to.  I haven't been that weight in a very long time.  I know that it isn't about weight, but about how you feel.  I wouldn't mind not being down at that weight if I was eating better.

Wish - I didn't make a huge amount in 2014, but I made more than I ever thought I would.  Actually, December has been my best month ever!! I would love to triple my 2014 earnings in 2015.  I am trying to plan out my year, and what I would like to see done.  I would love to be able to attend the TPT conference in Vegas this summer, collaborate with even more bloggers this year, and help more teachers in their classrooms!  I would also LOVE to be able to stay home with my babies!!

Happy 2015!!  I can't wait to hear what your goals are, and what are you up to as we begin this new journey together!


  1. Eating out has really cut into my spending this year. I have a goal for eating at home more too! For a new recipe try this Crock-Pot Chicken and Noodles recipe. It's a hit at my house:

    Your little ones might like this recipe: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/98727416805561304/ It's my daughter's favorite!

    I wish you the best of luck in tripling your earnings for 2015. That's a fantastic goal and I hope you are successful. After seeing all of the fantastic pictures from Vegas I'd love to attend that next year also. Fingers crossed!

    Indiana Bloggers are having a blogger meet up in March. Maybe you could get one organized for Arizona bloggers. It's not Vegas but I'm sure it would still be a blast.

    Have a wonderful New Year!

  2. I LOVE Revenge. I am a total addict! Hope you got caught up- there were some twist and turns at the end of the season.

    By the way, both kiddos in bed by 7:30?! I am super jealous! I only have one and I had to fight him to bed at almost 9. He is not a good sleeper at all, though. I can't complain- he is is great other than that!

    Happy New Year! :)

  3. I remember the days of being so excited when my babies were in bed by 7:30. It was like a night out at home! I hear you about the meals during the week. I just joined http://emeals.com/ and paid for a years worth of recipes including grocery lists for a small amount. They do have a crock pot category. Might be worth checking out. I want to make some money in my TPT store this year. I made a little bit and it won't be difficult to double that but....I have to get my ideas on PP so to speak and stop over thinking things! Good luck in 2015.

  4. Good luck tripling your earnings--that's very ambitious. Have you made BBQ pork loin in the crock pot? Pork loin and a can of root beer. Mix in your favorite BBQ sauce when you're ready to eat and put it on a bun. Super easy!
    Not very fancy

  5. Hello, friend, and Happy New Year! I put the same thing on my Currently--- ONE MORE WEEK! This break has gone waaaay too fast, and I still have lots that I need and want to do! I love the recipes on Epicurious.com (mostly from Bon Appetit!) and I would love to even double my earnings on TpT! Best to you in 2015!

  6. I hope we both get our wish this year! Happy New Year!

  7. I really, really like Revenge! It was a show that I came across on Netflix this summer! SO intense!

    Happy New Year!

  8. I enjoyed a quite New Year's Eve at home too! I honestly think it was the best one I've had in a long time! LOL! The thing I'm going to miss most about break is wearing comfy pants!! LOL! My goal is to also increase my TpT earnings! Best of luck to both of us!!
