Thoughts and goals for 2014

So I know we're nine days into the year, and I haven't really mentioned a thing about resolutions or goals or a word for the year. I'm still rolling around in my head what I want to accomplish this year. Mostly after how crazy life got at work the last four months, I'm just happy to have survived 2013.

The Mister and I still want to sit down and figure out some household projects to accomplish this year...so I guess I might finalize my goals in the next week or so.

Anyway, I saw this short resolutions list on The April Blake Blog's facebook page, which she got from The Hungry Meets Healthy Cooking Blog (which I need to start reading), and I finally traced the source of the list to LaurenConrad.com. And I thought this would be a good starting point to make some initial resolutions to get to work on.
A bad habit I’m going to break:
Going to bed without taking all my eye makeup off. Raccoon eyes in the morning are not cute.
A destination I’d like to visit:
We're hoping to get out to Hawaii this summer, but I also want to visit Miss Angie in Salt Lake City (heads up, girl!) and train at my jujitsu friend's school while I'm there.
I’m going to work harder at:
Cooking dinner at home. Life got too crazy last year, and I miss regularly sitting down with The Mister in our dining room.
A project I’d like to finish:
Speaking of the dining room, we're hoping to open the walls up more, replace the windows and repaint it.
A class I’d like to take:
I'm starting a leadership class for work next week, but that's not really a want as much as a necessity. I'm hoping to promote to brown belt in jujitsu soon, which means I can start attending the black belt classes at the dojo.
I’d like to spend more time doing:
Writing and journalling. This was a goal last year, and I barely touched my notebook. I miss writing for myself so much.
A food I want to eat more of:
Local fruit and veggies. I have a goal to let as little of our Brown Box Veggies produce to go bad as possible. It might be time to think about getting a separate freezer or learning how to can. 
I want to wear more:
Nail polish. I almost never do my nails anymore, and that's silly since I have Julep subscription.

I've missed writing poetry myself. There's nothing like a pen and paper. ❤️

Great list to start with! I firmly believe in goals and knowing that goals could morph throughout the year. :)

Great list! I also need to break my habit of going to bed with makeup on

Thanks. I love blogging, but sometimes you just wanna write for you.

Thanks, Sarah!

I'm pretty good about taking most of it off...it's just fighting with the mascara. I'm glad it doesn't smudge or flake all day, but seriously that makes it a pain to take off at night.

YAY! Best of luck on all of those! (and yes, do remove all of your makeup before sleep! It's bad for your skin, and your eyes-- and yours are too pretty to kill with makeup)
