Hello 2016!

I'm sad to see 2015 go, but absolutely thrilled to start a new year! Though I don't think it's very healthy to make a bunch of unrealistic resolutions that will be nearly impossible to keep, I do think that setting some goals for the year is a fantastic thing to do! Here are a few of my goals this year (maybe you guys can keep me accountable hehe)

1. Be more active in general. I'd like to start walking the dog at least once a day. Optimistically, I'd also love (but actually hate) to start running again...but we'll see about that. 

2. Bench press 135 lbs.  

3. Start culinary school. This one's a bit iffy, since Mack and I have no idea where we'll be going after he finishes a school, but I'd love to try to go back to school at our next station. 

4. Master a few culinary items I haven't tried yet: macarons, eggs benedict, croissants, crème brûlée and maybe even salmon en croûte. 

5. Get really good at knitting. 

6. Possibly start an etsy shop. This is another one I'm a little uncertain of, but if I can get to the point where I feel my cards and knitting projects are good enough to sell, I think this would be super fun!  

7. Continue blogging. I'd like to do at least 10 posts a month.  

8. Create a minimalistic and neutral wardrobe. 

9.  Step out of my comfort zone a bit. I'm not really sure how, but I'd like to do some things I normally wouldn't, be a little braver. 

10. Perfect winged eyeliner. Hehe.

11. Stop drinking soda (and other sugary drinks).

12. Stop feeling guilty about things that I shouldn't.

13. Start waking up earlier. 

I'm sure I'll add to this list over time, but it feels good to have some goals set for the year! Hopefully I can accomplish some of them. What are your goals/resolutions? Happy 2016!
