Happy New Year, all! Now that the holidays are over, I am so excited to get started with all of the fun things we have in store for 2018. As I sat down to think of my goals for this year, I thought it would be fun to share them with all of you. My community of followers is so supportive and loving, what better way to hold myself accountable than sharing my goals with you!
Rock my Workout Routine
Okay, I know this is one that everyone has, but I'm serious! Right now I do Pilates reformer on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays, but I'm looking forward to adding my boxing regimen back in on Tuesdays and Thursdays! It's so easy to fall off of your regular routine during the holidays, but no more excuses. I'm excited to get back in there and start hitting those bags!
Master Meal Prep
If you've been following along on my Instagram, the handy hubs and I redid the kitchen in 2017. I'm going to start using it to its full potential! Last week I went to Costco and bought everything I needed to do individual smoothie bags so they are ready and in my freezer. I'd also like to get better about meal planning, so that we eat out less!
Organize, Organize, Organize!
January is the time of the year where I like to really get into closets and cabinets and purge out everything we haven't used in the last year! It's a great time to get everything cleaned out and donate things that we no longer need.
Continue to make our house our Dream Home
We are excited to get a plan together for our next phase of renovations in our home! There are lots of surprises you'll have to stay tuned for. This spring, we are creating another sitting area outside behind the garage. Our kids are finally at the age where they no longer need the trampoline or play in the backyard, so we donated it and we are ready to make that space usable again! Stay tuned!
Get the Hang of this whole Blog Thing
I'm going to spend 2018 mastering "being a blogger." I'm sure you've noticed over on Instagram that Style And Grace is now part of RewardStyle and LikeToKnow.it. For those who don't know what that is, RewardStyle is a program for fashion and home influencers to share their looks with their followers in a way so that their followers can easily shop the products online. I'm constantly answering the question "omg this is so cute, where did you get it?" With RewardStyle, it makes it easy for me to show you! It's a way for me to share my favorites so that it provides a link directly to the spot where you can buy them for your own home. This is a giant undertaking, so I've even got myself a gal to help me wrangle it all. Katie is a Social Media QUEEN, and she'll be helping me manage my blog and optimize all things social! So, if there's anything you'd like to see on the blog, PLEASE let me know!
Olivia is graduating in May, so I'm going to start planning for her graduation party! Everyone says that your kids will grow up so fast and before you know it, they will be off to college. I never realized how true that was, until this year. We'll be throwing her a big bash this May, and my wheels are already cranking on how to get this place decorated with all things Olivia.
Plan our Hawaii trip!
Ugh, my life is so hard. Gotta plan an awesome family vacay. We're headed to the land of Aloha and Mai Tais this summer. If anyone has any recommendations on must-sees, please let me know!
To close out on 2017, I've included some of my favorite finds from the year below. Like I mentioned above, you can click on these items to shop them for yourself! How cool is that!?

Here's to a wonderful 2018 for all of us!
