New Years Resolutions Recap 2014

2014 was a big year. We did a lot of things we planned to. We moved house, got a car and welcomed our baby boy. An eventful year.

*2013 saw me buy my big camera. This year I'd like to properly learn how to use it so expect some posts and probably terrible pictures!

No. Well that didn't happen. A mixture of me trying a few times and not getting very far.

*We want to buy a car

YES. We got a new car a few weeks before Parker was born. Best thing ever.

*Move house or at least make plans to move

YES. We moved at the end of March so actually quite early in in the year.

*De-clutter before we move

KINDA. I did do some but I want to do some more.*I never paint my nails anymore and it seems like such a silly thing but I want to make time at least once a month to paint them this year.NO. I failed so much. I think I painted them a grand total of 5 times all year. I need to make time.

*Being a newly married couple I want me and Mark to spend one night a month having a date night. Be it at home with a take away and a film while Paige is in bed or out for coffee together on a Saturday afternoon.
NO. Another fail. We did so badly.

*2014 will hopefully see Paige starting nursery for a couple of afternoons. I want her to start mixing with more children and this will then give me a few precious hours with the new baby when he/she arrives

YES. Paige started nursery at the beginning of October. She loves it.

*In 2013 I did project 365 and loved it. I love that I have a specific picture from every single day of the year. It was hard to keep up to it at times but I did it and in 2014 I want to do something similar. So my resolution is to take a family picture each month. This year our family will grow and develop and I think having a record of that will be amazing.

YES. I am so happy that I managed to do this one. I hope to continue this into 2015.

*After the baby is born I also want to try and lose all/if not most of my extra baby weight before Christmas. This gives me 6 months. My aim is to fit into my pre pregnancy jeans!

YES. I did it. I have 1lb to go but I've fit into pre pregnancy jeans since around 8/9 weeks post partum.

*Id love a new iPhone this year. Mine is slowly dying so a new one would be amazing. I best get saving! 

YES. I got a new one. Not the most recent but I got a lovely shiny iPhone 5 a couple of months ago.

Overall I am quite happy with how I got on. I didn't do perfectly but oh well. Onto next year!
