Favorite Friday Favorites # 11: New Years 2014 Edition

1. This Gorgeous Hand-Stitched Calendar Tea Towel From Abigail Halpin-

2. New Year's Short Terms Goals-

"According to statistics published last year by the University of Scranton, about 45 percent of Americans usually make New Year’s resolutions – and the most popular resolution is losing weight. Of those who make resolutions, a mere 8 percent (yes, 8 percent!) achieve them.". [link] That statistic will take the wind right out of your sails! 

When I was younger, I would make a list of New Year's resolutions on New Year's Eve and I would promptly forgot about them by February 1st. As I have gotten older, I have realized that I do much better with several lists of short term goals, spread-out throughout the year. If I have a long term goal of getting into shape (which I do), I will set myself a short-term goal of making it to the gym three times a week in January. That is a tunnel I can see the end of and thus, won't get discouraged. If you have had trouble sticking to your New Year's resolutions, I challenge you to try some short-term goal and see if it works for you in 2014  

3. Another year with this guy-

New Year's Eve 2013 with my lobster. 
Every day with this guy is a gift for which I always want to be thankful. 2013 was 365 days of magic. We bought a house. We went on many great adventures together. So many good things happened this year! Excited to see what 2014 has in store for us.

4. "The Grand Budapest Hotel" is Coming Out in 2014- 

Watch out, March 2014. I'm coming for you....

5. Everything about this video-

Happy New Years, friends! I hope your next year is better than the last! See you in 2014!
