I have a confession to make.... I forgot to make plans for NYE. I'm usually so on top of planning things way in advance, but we've been on the go so much this holiday season and never committed to any plans. Lame, I know.
After debating our options, we decided to have a low key NYE by staying home, playing some very competitive board games, and sipping on our favorite Barrel Oak wine and champagne.
South Carolinians sure love their fireworks though. I'm almost positive that every damn family within a 5 mile radius had fireworks. Seeing them from our back yard was great and all, but not for 6 straight hours. I think I might lose my mind if I hear another one!

As for the New Year, I've never really been a fan of making New Years resolutions because I tend to make them unattainable. I always get annoyed with resolutions because it makes the gym super packed for the first 2 months of the year. Although this year I'm one of those people... Oops.
Since I'm a compulsive list-maker and don't want to miss out on the opportunity, here are my realistic goals for the New Year:
(Hello Italy and Paris in less than 3 months... woo!)
Decide where we want to settle down, no more moving around and renting.
Master manual mode on my camera.
(Translation: stop going to Target so often)
Eat healthy and get toned.
(Translation: lose the Christmas cookie chub)
Be present and focus on what really matters.Admittedly most of these are things I told myself I'd do at some point last year. Maybe by publicly throwing them out there, I'll keep to them!?
And finally, my ultimate goal for 2014...
And as far as today goes, I'll be the person in the gym who looks like they might pass out running on the treadmill... wish me luck!
Do you make New Years resolutions or goals? 2013 was so good to us, but we are really looking forward to all that 2014 brings!
