New Year, New You – TBB Asks

Hello Monday and hello friends! Did you manage to stay warm this weekend? I think we are in one of the few warm pockets in the US right now. We keep tabs on different places in the country where we have family and it’s been frigid everywhere. 

You may not be familiar with The Blended Blog and just what it is, but it’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s a collaboration of lifestyle bloggers all coming together. What a fun idea! Some of these bloggers are some of my best blogging friends. Friends I’ve never met. It’s the craziest thing. I talk about these women like I’m with them all the time. 

Each month they have a set of questions/prompts to help us share and learn more about each other. It’s fun to find out just what we all have in common. Today is the day for the January edition. 


1. Resolutions or No Resolutions? 

No resolutions for this girl. 

2. Love snow or No Snow? 

Spending 3 winters in Minnesota can kill your love for snow…at least for a little while. Now that we’ve been in California for 4 winters I think I could actually embrace some snow. I occassionaly find myself missing the excitement of a snowfall when I hear about it from friends. 

(this was our house in MN)

3. Name a New Place you want to go this year? 

We are planning to take a trip every spring with our friends Paul and Elizabeth. This year we have Savannah and Charleston as possibilities, but I sure wouldn’t be opposed to visiting another Hawaiian island. {wink, wink}

4. Would you rather have a new Hair cut or Hair color? 

Hmmm….that’s a hard one, but probably a cut. It always feels so much lighter and softer. I’m actually in need of a haircut right now.

5. Name one special thing you want to do for yourself this year? 

 I think I’d have to say being less critical of myself and not comparing myself to other women. This is such a nasty habit and one I’d personally like to kick to the curb.

6. Least Favorite thing about January? 

The let down after the holidays.

7. Most Favorite thing about January? 

A fresh start.

8. When do you take down your Holiday decorations? 

Sometime during the week between Christmas and New Year’s. I’m usually ready to “reclaim” my space and de-glitter. LOL

9. Do you diet in January?

No, I’m more of a watch what you eat kind of person all the time. Having said that, the older I get the harder it becomes to keep those pesky pounds off and the more I’m having to cut back. Pretty soon I’ll just be eating ice and drinking water. HA!

10. What area of your home do you want to organize the most? 

I try to keep all areas pretty organized, but some of the closets and cabinets could definitely do with a good touch up.

11. Favorite Winter Comfort Food? 

The first thing that popped into my head was pancakes, so let’s just go with that. Breakfast for dinner is a favorite for sure.

12. Favorite Guilty Pleasure

I think having my nails done could fall into this category. I hate trying to keep them polished so I end up keeping them dipped (now) or having some other form of pink and white acrylics done. I hate to spend the money, but I just really feel better when they are done.

Here’s to a great 2018 friends.
