The first week of 2016 is coming to an end. I’m still trying to get in the swing of a new year, trying to figure out the best way to get the most out of my days while remaining focused. If I had to pick a word for this week it is overwhelmed. This week I was in such a rush to make all new year changes at the same time, I realized it will take some time One thing I learned this week is I need to cut back on my to do’s. I’m always one to say there isn’t enough time in the day. Truth is, there is. I just have to figure out how work my days to get the most important tasks done while spending time with the ones most important to me.
While I spend some time figuring out, I’m sharing some of my favorite pins from the week with you. To see what else I’m pinning, follow me on Pinterest.
Pantone’s Colors of the Year have been released and are absolutely gorgeous. Makes me ready for all things spring.
I’ve been on the search for clean eating crock pot meals this week. One I cannot wait to try is these bell peppers next week.
This week we FINALLY had cool weather, for the entire week! I wore long sleeves, slippers the heat even came on a few nights. It’s been such a nice change. Time to pull out my scarves and see if I can pull off some stylish outfits, like this one below.
Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it and I’m already planning fun things for the kids. One thing on our list is a playdate with friends. Last year, I made this snack mix which I finally shared on SMWL. Next, I’ll be searching for fun activities for the kids to do!
Today, I’m leaving you with a quote that hit home for me this week. With the new year, it’s hard not to want to dive in head first, make all the changes, accomplish all the goals. The slower you start the more steady you will be and the stronger you’ll finish. Focus on one goal at a time, one task you want to accomplish or a habit you want to set. Once you’re satisfied with your progress, move on to another. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself to get it all done at once.
It doesn’t matter how slow you go, as long as you don’t stop!
Cheers to the weekend!
