1. Downtown Abbey
I'm sure many of you have heard of or watch this show. I may be one of the last few people to jump on the bandwagon, as I've just started watching it! I will say that I wasn't engrossed with it immediately and it took me awhile to get into the characters. I'm almost done with season one now and I really like it so far. If you watch it, does it get better?
At the start of every new year I vow to do two things- eat better and declutter. There's something about clearing off all the holiday decorations and letting the house breathe that I love. I'm playing around with our decor and itching to get more pictures and art work onto our walls. I've also tackled my closet and I've got a huge pile of clothes and accessories to give away. Ah, it feels so good!
3. Valentine's Day
Nothing seems to stop stores from whipping out the next stock of holiday merchandise. The candy is out, the red hearts are popping up, and I bought Miss A her first gift- a book from Target's dollar spot. I'd like to make it special for her this year, with heart shaped chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast and red sugar cookies to snack on. I'm sure I'll dress her up in a cute red outfit too!
4. Talk To Me About Music
I could really use some recommendations- what/who are you loving right now? It has been far too long since I've fallen in love with a new singer or band. I play music constantly throughout the day to get me motivated to clean, to dance around to with Miss A, and while we eat. We both could use something new to listen to!
5. Healthy Eating
Who else has vowed to "eat healthier" this year? I'm thinking about printing this out and sticking it in my pantry!
