Happy New Years Everyone! I'm finally back from Florida so I should be posting on a consistent basis again. I thought I would be able to on vacation, but as it turns out, my parent's beach house is in a cell phone dead zone so my little T-Mobile hotspot doesn't work so no internet. Boooo.
I was able to see some nice fireworks in downtown Jacksonville, and the weather was definitely more festive than here in Michigan.
Jacksonville has some nice scenery down by the river.
I refinished this bench for my mom. It was originally brown and she wanted a white shabby chic look. I think it came out nicely.
We also visited some nice gardens at the Cummer Museum.
I'm not really big into New Years Resolutions but there are some things I want to either start or continue doing this year.
Go To The Gym
I actually did this last year too and I was pretty good about it. The only thing that limits me is my back. I learned that no, I can't do 100 sit ups a day and not irritate my lower back. So this year I want to go to the gym, but do it in a smarter way, where I'm not doing potentially dangerous things.
I'm pretty good about this too. I only fall off the wagon around holidays. I'm pretty good at avoiding fast food and stuff like that, but I love sweets.
I started keeping a journal around a month ago, but I find that I have just essentially been writing what I do everyday. If someone were to read it after I was dead, I'm sure they would think I was a giant snooze fest. So I really want to go deeper and actually write about my thoughts.
Not Buy Anymore Drugstore Makeup
I've decided to quit this one cold turkey. All of my silly impulse buys add up and then I have too many things that I never really use. I don't use any drugstore makeup on a daily basis that I consider essential. So this shouldn't be too bad.
What are your new years resolutions?
