ohhhh, long time no blog. i had such a mean streak going in the beginning of the year! i guess now's as good a time as any to pick it back up because... i have exciting news... i'm moving back to denver!!! i'll be there right at the beginning of the june, which is amazing because summer in denver is the BEST. i'm sure i'll share more about my upcoming move later (or, more likely, i won't) but for now, i wanted to do a little check-in to see how my new year's resolutions were coming along. let's see...
1. stop using k-cups
YES. i'm actually doing this! i haven't purchased a single k-cup in 2017. instead, i've been using these reusable k-cups from amazon and bags of cheap ol' folgers. proud of myself for this.
2. cook homemade meals
not really. i started off strong in the beginning of the year, but lately my mama's been doing most of the cooking (love her). i'll definitely amp this up when i move back to denver and can't rely on my parents anymore.
3. get the family to recycle
4. exercise, and find joy in it
mehhhh. i've been hitting my 10k steps most days, and running sometimes, but definitely not being consistent and i wouldn't exactly say it's joyful.
5. read the bible
nope. double ugh.
6. invest in a good pair of jeans
not yet. i'm hoping to lose some weight (lolz aren't we all) before investing.
7. write something every day
nope nope nope. i really want to fix this.
8. take pictures
huge no. why don't i ever take pictures?!
9. read more
yes! finally a yes! i've read 18 books so far this year. feels good.
10. seek out good music
no, and i kind of forgot i made this a goal. i AM however loving spotify's "daily mixes" they throw at me.
11. budget better
YES. i've been updating my spreadsheet faithfully. i love seeing where my money is going. (turns out most of it is going towards my car. ugh.)
yes! i took a trip to louisville to see jenny, went to phoenix a few weeks ago with steph and kenzie, i'm headed to denver in a few days for pam's wedding, and my mom was talking about visiting her sister in florida sometime soon... gosh i love to travel.
...so, all in all, not completely terrible? not GREAT, but not terrible. for the next few weeks i'm going to try to focus on writing, reading the bible, and getting some sort of consistent exercise routine going. 2017, i'm digging you so far. keep it up.
