welcome 2013.

last year i made a list of goals that i hoped to meet throughout the year and did monthly recaps of those resolutions.
it was a good way for me to keep track of my accomplishments personally and on the blog...so here's a list of things
i hope to stay on top of in 2013:

1) drink water, period.
(most days i'm lucky if i drink one glass of water)
2) try something new every month.
(new recipe, new restaurant/menu item, visit a new attraction, etc...)
3) be on time.
(early to bed, early to rise)
4) eat breakfast with the minis during the week.
(they're usually eating while i get ready for work; goes along with #3)
5) simplify and de-clutter.
(the drawers, the closets, the garage, the file cabinets, you name it!)
6) improve my photography skills.
(learn every function of my camera)
7) timely and organized blog posts.
(plan ahead and schedule posts during busy months)

have you made any goals for the new year?


spent new year's day with the neighborhood mamas...some of us recuperating from the eve, but given a little food and
coffee with kahlua, we were ready to go.
this was my favorite wine of the night...very smooth!
(express sweater (similar); victoria's secret shoes (similar);
carrie cargo pant via oomph (buy))

i'd love and appreciate your vote for [oomph.] on circle of moms'

  2. Voted for you Becks! I love this outfit. The cut of the top and pockets in the pants are cool. You've come up with some major goals girl. I did the de-clutter one last year. Now i'm trying to add more color to my wardrobe and more accessories.

  3. These are some great goals Rebecca. You are so good at holding yourself accountable and setting realistic goals for yourself. I love the one about eating breakfast with the kiddos in the morning--what a fun ritual! I love your trousers and heels!

  4. Great resolutions. I need to make resolutions 6 and 7 mine as well. I really need to start improving the quality of photos I take for my blog but I also need to get more organized with posts. I hope you are having a great 2013!

  7. Happy New Year! It's good that you are still working towards your goals. Being a busy mom also, most of your goals are mine too. My main one is getting the house organized. It's starting to drive me crazy! Heather

    I love the khaki pants with the leopard print heels, such a perfect combination :)

  11. I love the list! I was able to get myself to drink more water by squeezing limes & lemons into sparkling water. It's super refreshing and healthy too. Simplifying and decluttering however??? NO idea. This is a huge problem for me! Love your peacock earrings.

  24. Being on time should top my list. I always get into a little fight with the boy friend if I'm a little late. Gosh. LOL.

    Love the casual and laid back outfit. Happy New Year, too. =)

  25. I'm with you on the drinking water. I even got myself a cute water bottle to encourage me to fill up and drink more water at work - lol! Happy 2013!

  26. Great goals! I haven't made any specific goals for this year, I just want to live well I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I've made a list in my brain, I need to write my goals down though. Drinking more water is on my list too! Still love those shoes of yours - so chic!

  28. Hello gorgeous in these photos!!
    We have a lot of similar goals...too bad we don't live closer. I could force you to drink water, you could steal away my sugar...that kind of thing. ;)

  29. I love the dressy shoes under the casual cargo pants. Cute earrings.
    I like your goals.. I have more business goals but not much personal ones. I would love to stay on track with my son's homework as we both tend to get lazy but his school is so advanced he needs the extra work.
