Hi everyone!  So last week I talked about my fitness goals.  Today, I'm going to write out some of my goals.  I feel that if they aren't written down, and aren't planned then it will never happen.  It takes more than just thinking about goals to make them happen.  You need to plan.  You need to attract them. I believe in the Law of Attraction so let's dive in.

Here are some of my goals for this year, I have a few others that will remain private (for now):

Fitness - lose 20 pounds by the summer
Nutrition - eat more veggies, and make healthier choices
Money - Save it!! Learn to budget
Travel - Find local NE destinations to visit this spring, not too expensive
Self Care - Make time for me
Relationship/Family - Make time for date nights with hubby, make time for some family fun with my kids

So far I've started my fitness and nutrition - going on my 3rd week!  So far so good!  Everything else is a work in progress.  Money - I'm still trying to dig myself out of a whole before I can save anything.  I started looking at places in MA and CT to visit this Spring - any suggestions?
For self-care, I will carve out 30 minutes to an hour every day to read, take a bath or watch a fave show - anything that I feel like doing that day.
The last one on this list is family and relationship.  I enjoy my time in the morning when I drop my daughter off at school, it is our time to talk without any boys interrupting.  I love it, but sometimes we try to talk at the end of the day too.  I want to have more time for her and would love to take another mother-daughter trip!  We haven't done one in years!  With my son its harder, so I'll settle for Sunday dinners.  This has to happen without fail - Sunday dinners for us to catch up and spend time together.  Then hubby.  We need to go back to our Friday date nights.  These were fun and nice to go eat without anyone else, just the 2 of us!

One of the other things that are good to do to make your goals a reality, is to create a vision board. I've never created one but this year I plan on it.  There are many ways to create one, but I'm thinking of starting with a digital board.  I'll use powerpoint to put all of my pictures on.

I can't wait to get this started!
Have you written down your goals?
How are you planning on making them a reality?

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
