It's so much fun to link up with Farley from Oh Boy 4th Grade for her Currently linky.

Listening:  I am currently listening to my boys running all around the house.  Since I am divorced, they spend every other Christmas with Dad. This was his year :(.  I missed my little guy like crazy but I'd be lyin' if I didn't say it was nice to have the quiet and some time to get some things done around the house.  Now he's back, as are my two stepsons and they are having a blast running around playing. Ahh....the sounds of laughter and little boy voices. Might as well enjoy it now because it will inevitably lead to shrieking and arguing in 5, 4, 3...  (don't worry...I'll spare you.)  :)

Loving:  I'm loving the book It Starts with Food (o.k. well technically it's the audiobook) but I'm going to give it a whirl because everything they say makes perfect sense. I know it will be hard but I'm committed. Since I have now put it in writing I'm even more committed now, right? 

Thinking: What in the world am I going to make for  dinner?  Why do I do this to myself every night? Get it together, Julie!

Wanting: Another week off from vacation.  What? Don't judge.  Deep down inside you must want another week off too, right? 

Needing:  A more consistent exercise regime. If I take a day off, it turns into a week and then. Never mind. I'll stop there.

Yes, maybe I wish: I could be a stay at home fur mommy. The love of this dog brings so much happiness to my life. He is my sidekick and follows me everywhere.  We are going to have a rude awakening come Monday AM....

What are your goals for the New Year? What are loving, wanting and needing?  I always love hearing from you.

Happy New Year, friends!!


  1. I can't wait to read that book. I am going to go order it right now. I need to start making myself and my health a priority. Deciding what to make for dinner is a nightly dilemma in my house too. I hate deciding what to make or have for dinner.

    1. Yay! Good for you, Amanda! If you are interested, we can help support and inspire one another on the diet once you get the book. Happy New Year to you!

  2. Hi there! So cool you're reading It Starts with Food - I did a Whole 30 in 2010 I think and learned lots about myself...I need to get back on track though - that's definitely part of my resolutions! :-) Your pup is so cute...I would love a dog but live alone in an apartment, so timing isn't right just yet...soon, I hope!
    Happy New Year!
