5 Mom New Years Resolutions

Mom-New-Year-ResolutionLet me start by saying that I can’t believe the year is over. I’m still trying to cross off things on my last resolutions list. So rather than create a new list with things that are for sure just going to sit on the back burner, I’ve simplified it this year and kept it attainable. Just five things that are for sure to make 2017 extra special and all for the better.

5 mom new years resolutions

 

1. Be present – It’s certainly easier said than done with the multitude of social media apps out there and even kid apps. In 2017, I plan to completely disconnect from our phones, T.V. and computer for a few hours each day. Calling it our holy hours.

2. Declutter – Now is the time to get rid of all the toys! Ha- ok not really. I wish I could, though. They are literally taking over every inch of our home. I’ve already started to go through them all and make piles of toys the girls have outgrown or don’t use on the daily. And I’ll be placing the rest of the toys in closets and bins. Anything that does not fit will for sure be donated. Done and done! Now let’s hope Mia, our oldest, doesn’t realize they’re missing. That girl has such a gnarly memory!

3. Get Organized – Having two little ones has made it difficult to stay on top of everything and organizing our home has for sure taken a back seat. I’m going to make a list of 5 things that need to get organized and give myself an actual due date to get it done.

4. Have Patience – Ok, hands down the hardest one on my list. Keeping it real over here. Some days are harder than others but patience is a must with little ones. I just bought a great book for inspiration. Can’t wait to let you know if it works.

5. More Dates – By this, I mean scheduling quality time with both my kids and husband individually. I think it’s so important to do this more so when there’s 2+ kids. Love taking Mia on movie and frozen yogurt dates. Plus, it helps when she’s craving extra attention. Ahem, acting up because of all the attention we now give to the baby.

*Bonus for 2018: Take a mommy time out once a month. It’s so important for us moms to make sure we also make time for ourselves. I know, I know, I get it. The mom guilt, right? But trust me, it will make a big difference with your family. Even if it’s just a couple hours reading a book at a local coffee shop, getting a facial done, or going to brunch with your girlfriends. Remember to scheduled these timeouts and add them to your calendar as well!

I read this a few weeks ago and it has been stuck in my head ever since. It’s easy to get caught up in the comparison game more so with all the social media outlets but remember this... Stay true to who you are because that itself is what sets you apart. And how are you using your uniqueness to inspire and uplift others?

Thank you @beatrizacevedogreiff for being a #momboss and inspiring me on the daily. Love following you on IG and seeing all your success.❤️

Happy Father's Day to all! Especially to my dad and this hunk. There are not enough words I can say to describe just how important you both are to me and the girls. And to my love, thank you for working so hard for us and for your unconditional love! For raising our girls to be kind humans and to always believe in themselves. Oh and for finally realizing you were missing out on the matchy matchy. You totally surprised me when you said you actually wanted matching pajamas. 😆😘

  • #ad Most of us remember to grab sun protection when we're headed to a pool 🏊‍♀️ or the beach 🏖 but don't forget about all the other fun outdoor activities. ☀️ It's so crucial to keep our little ones skin protected as well as ours too! .

Loving the Aveeno® Baby Continuous Protection®  as it's free of all parabens, phthalates, dyes, fragrances & chemical sunscreen ingredients! But best of all, this sunscreen contains the highest level* of zinc oxide for superior UVA/UVB protection for babies with sensitive skin. And I've been using AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE® Lotion Sunscreen. So awesome that it's for both face + body. Save $3 off any Aveeno Sun or Aveeno Baby Sun product at CVS through Ibotta #SunnyMoments @aveenous @cvspharmacy #CVSBeauty PC: @lin_marty

  • #Diorgiftedme Loving this weightless, high-pigmented Dior Addict Lacquer Stick that glides on super easy. The best part is that it's also a hydrating balm yet doesn't compromise its bold color. .

  • Summer just got a whole lot better! I’m so excited #HarkenWine brought back their Chardonnay which has buttery toasty notes and is 100% barrel fermented. .

The truth is, I’ve always been a huge fan ever since I was first introduced to wine many moons ago. ☺️ So don’t mind me. I’ll be over here doing hair flips and a happy dance with this rad vintage dress. Yay for Old School California Chardonnay! #ad @harken_wine
