It’s so crazy that it’s already the second week of January, and that my maternity leave is winding down and almost over! It’s still so hard to believe! Our weekend was pretty much the same as it’s been lately with a ton of baby happenings like feedings and changing diapers, but the exciting part was that my cousin came into town to spend the weekend with us. She was seriously such a help by cooking breakfast, lunch, and dinner for us and just holding and hanging out with babies. It was so nice to have the help around, especially since Friday was my first day home alone with the girls and there might have been a meltdown or two. Needless to say, she couldn’t have come at a more perfect time! Anyways, I’m changing it up a little bit and I’m linking up with Andrea and The Blended Blog for some TBB Asks to kick off January!
- Resolutions or no resolutions?
Usually I’m a resolution type of person, but this year I didn’t even have time to think about one! That being said I usually stick to the same resolutions every year anyways: trying to eat healthier and try to work out more.
- Love snow or no snow?
I totally love snow, but I think that’s because snow is still just such a novelty to us down in the South and it doesn’t happen very often. We actually got snow this year in Houston and everybody freaked out! I’m sure that if I lived up North I’d hate the snow, but I would love to have a white Christmas one of these years!
- Name a new place you want to go this year?
I honestly don’t know if we’ll be taking any trips this year where we have to fly with the girls because it honestly freaks me out with them being so young right now. But I would love to try and drive somewhere with them and do a road trip. There’s multiple places around that would be fun for us to visit that are within driving distance, so we’ll see if we can try to get something planned! I’m thinking maybe Hot Springs Arkansas or even a road trip across Texas to Marfa and Big Bend!
- Would you rather have a new hair cut or hair color?
I’m not one that can change up her hair style too much, it’s pretty much either long or short, but about a year and a half ago I made the plunge and went blonde. I have to admit that I love it, and I don’t know if I’ll ever go back!
- Name one special thing you want to do for yourself this year?
I have to admit that it’ll be hard to do anything for myself this year with the girls being so young, but I’d love to maybe have a little quiet time to myself to just relax. Or maybe to go on a trip with my girlfriends or something like that. We’ll have to wait and see if I can get something planned!
- Least favorite thing about January?
I still really hate that January is so cold (kind of an oxymoron considering that I do like snow), but I also hate how dark it gets because it’s still daylight savings time. I also hate how long it takes me to get used to writing down the new year when I’m dating things!
- Most favorite thing about January?
The fact that it represents such a new beginning to the year and anything else that you might want. It’s a chance to start fresh and make the most of the year to come.
- When do you take down your Holiday decorations?
We try to take them down as close to the beginning of January as possible. Thankfully my cousin came in town this weekend to help us out so that Chris could take everything down and get it put up. It’s always hard though because we have Christmas with Chris’s side of the family at New Years so we don’t want to take down our decorations just yet, but the beginning of the year also marks the busy time of the year for me at work so it’s a Catch 22.
- Do you diet in January?
I always tend to diet in January although I try not to go too extreme one way or the other. Generally Chris and I try to be better about meal planning and eat meals that are better for us, and that usually works for us. If I tried to go extreme diet I totally wouldn’t survive!
- What area of your home do you want to organize the most?
I’d say probably my closet. At least before the girls were born I went through and got rid of a bunch of clothes that don’t fit anymore, but it’s still not really organized too much. Who knows when I’ll have time for that though!
- Favorite Winter Comfort Food?
Without out a doubt the thing that I love the most during the winter is soups, stews, and chilis! What’s even better about all of those is that they can usually be thrown in to a crockpot for easy cooking!
- Favorite Guilty Pleasure
My favorite guilty pleasure will always be reality TV! I seriously can’t get enough of all the Real Housewives and The Bachelor and Big Brother and pretty much anything else you can think of. Yes I have a problem, but I still love it so much!
I always love The TBB Asks every month because I feel like it’s a great way to start thinking about what’s happening with the coming month. This year is a little different for me as far as New Years Resolutions go, but I’m excited to see what 2018 has in store for us!
Do you have any New Years Resolutions for the year? Do you have any guilty pleasures that you’re trying to kick?
