Happy New Year! Brand new year, brand new goals, just so many things to do and look forward to! January is always going to be a super exciting month for me as we get to celebrate a birthday right at the beginning of the month to start the year off on one of the best positive notes we can! C-Man turns two in just a few days! He’s growing up way too fast for me.

- Eat healthier: Less eating out, keeping better foods in the house, more attention to portion control, etc.
- Exercise. (Normally I would say lose weight, but I’d like exercising to be a new part of my daily routine.)
- Read more. (Especially books.)
- Write more. (1000 words a day? I think I can do it.)
- Learn something new.

I’ve been thinking and scouring Pinterest for the recipes I want to use for my FIRST meal plan of the new year. Man, talk about pressure! I want to start the year off right and I want it to be fun. But I also want it to be as healthy as I can be. (That’s not to say I won’t throw some of those yummy, creamy, carby pieces of awesomeness in here. I’m not going health blog here.) I just like to have options. So here’s to my first plan of 2016:
