New Years Goals

This year, my blog faves, Erika and Shay have replaced their "Stranded" series with a new one called "Workin' It Wednesdays." It's all about how us busy gals manage it all. I can't wait to see more posts in the link up to get great new ideas!

 Here's the rundown of the year's topics!

Today's Topic: New Year's Goals!! 

Ok, I'm resorting to a numbered list for this one.

1. Boot Camp at least 4 days a week: Boot camp is HARD and I always leave sore and drenched in sweat, but also feeling SO GOOD. I am using muscles I never have before and gaining strength, stamina, and energy. I am so glad I found this workout plan that I really enjoy. 

2. Try a few new recipes every month: I am all about finding new recipes on Pinterest and I recently got some new cookbooks. I am on the hunt for some more complicated dishes I've never tried and also some easy fast meals to add to our regular meal rotations (This weekend I am making chicken pot pie from scratch, I'm excited to try it!). 

3. Try some STEM/Problem Based Learning Lessons: I've been doing some research about more open ended projects and lessons with my class. My bunch this year is really creative and I just know they'd be totally into some fun and creative group projects with all sorts of unique materials.

4. Start a garden: We have a little plot of space in our teeny backyard and I'm excited to plant some things there. The owners before us had tomatoes and they popped up again over the summer. They were delicious. I don't know the first thing about planting so I predict many trips to Home Depot to ask questions!

5. Pay off my car: This is a big one. I am super anti-debt (thanks, Dave Ramsey) and I know that for most people paying cash for a new car is unheard of. Most people make payments, as I do, but I am really hoping to knock that debt out of our monthly budget. I'd be satisfied with even a big dent in it instead of necessarily paying it off this year, but that is the goal.

6. Celebrate Hadley's birthday in a meaningful way: I have a few ideas I've been working on/thinking about and I really want to pay it forward, honor my Princess, and find a way to celebrate that is healing, holy, meaningful, and important for us.

7. House Projects: I would like to get some new dining room and bathroom lighting and get new blinds/shutters. Blame HGTV!

8 Explore/work through a new Bible study on the You Version Bible app: There are awesome devotionals and plans for every season of life. There are tons of amazing free ones that walk you through some biblical inspiration and help guide you through the Word.

9. Keep Blogging: I thoroughly enjoy writing in this space. I'm looking forward to the future direction of this little corner of the internet. I want to reach out to other bloggers, seek out more writing opportunities, and as always, be honest and form connections with readers of Sunday Kinda Love

10. SAVOR MY SPARKLE: Cherish, celebrate, and enjoy. Life is sparkly and beautiful and I intend on being grateful for every victory, lesson, joy, and sorrow that comes my way in 2017. Come at me, bro. 


  1. Stopping by from the link-up... I blame HGTV for almost anything home related ;)
    Happy New Year!


    1. Seriously! Chip and's all your fault! Thanks for stopping by, I'm excited to check out your blog!

  2. Numbering your goals speaks to my list-making heart. :) I think they're all great but #10 resonates strongly with me- I wrote something similar. Good luck!
