Here's to 2015!

I can't believe 2014 is over... it's crazy how time flies. I can't tell you how many times my parents said that as you get older time seems to go by quicker. When you are 15-16 years old, you want time to go by quicker, now I'm like slow down!

2014 was a great year. The Hubby and I made a lot of great memories! I hope we can make many more this year!








I know a lot of people start out the new year with resolutions. Most of those resolutions are dropped by the time February rolls around. 

So I am not going to make resolutions. I am just going to write about my hopes for 2015 and beyond.

1. Not live for tomorrow's but appreciate today.
This year has been full of heartbreaks and sadness. It seems like the news is full of terrible stories. It seems like it's always too late that we realize what is important in life. I am going to try and put that first.



I want to enjoy time with my husband. Enjoy life everyday and make the most of what we have. Life is too precious to put things off. You never know what life can throw at you.

2. Walk around more.
I have a new Fit-bit that I got for Christmas. I am going to try to strive to walk more. Don't get me wrong, I could stand to lose a lot of weight, but why focus on the negative when you can look at the positive? I have a husband who loves me no matter what, so I am going to start walking around more. If I lose weight, great! If not, it's still good for me!



3. Mark a couple things off our bucket list.
The last time we took our vacation to Las Vegas, one of our best evenings was sitting around in our hotel room and talking about what was on our bucket lists.



We are planning a road trip to Las Vegas in the spring. This is going to be a 28 hour drive. Some people said it's crazy and that we should just fly. But it's an adventure. The Hubby has always said he wanted to do this and before we have kids and can't we are going for it. Life is what you make it right?!?

4. Don't let the little things change our attitudes.
It's so easy to let others dictate your attitude and emotions. This leads to letting them effect how your day goes. We both have to try to not let others decide if we are going to have a good or bad day. I know this is easier said then done, but you always have to start somewhere.



I know that not all of these will be successful 100% of the time, but maybe they will make a difference in our lives this year!



Here is to 2015. Let this be an even better year!

Until next time,

Kara

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!


I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:



Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Songs I am Obsessed With Right Now

Maybe I am the only person, but when I hear a song I like on the radio I kind of get obsessed with it. I just want it to come on all the time! Or I go home and YouTube it over and over!

Here are a few of the songs I love right now!

This song by the Chainsmokers is awesome. It has such a great beat and it's always on the radio right now!



Dan and Shay are a great country duo, but From the Ground Up is such a beautiful song. I absolutely love it.

Florida Georgia Line has never put out a bad song. It took me a few times for me to get into this one, but I really like the song. It's another I love to sing when it comes across the radio (which is quite a bit).

I hope you enjoy your day! 

Until next time,

Kara

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
