At the beginning of January, I declared that 2018 was going to be the #yearofme. I was going to focus on removing all the excess in my life that bogged me down and prevented me from doing the things I truly wanted. I was going to be more in tune with my dreams and goals and dedicate the year to growing and learning and being unashamedly myself. Friends. I'm not kidding when I say that my life has completely changed since I decided (and put into the universe) that 2018 was going to be the #yearofme. I have never felt more sure of myself or more confident in who I am and where I'm going. At the same time, I've been doing a LOT of growing and learning. I've been . . .
I've been doing this thing where I set quarterly goals for my blog/business. Every quarter, I pick a prize to work towards and if I hit those goals, I can treat myself to my prize with no guilt. And these prizes are good prizes, too - they are things that I have always wanted but would never buy on my own on a regular Tuesday. They are reaching prizes - and I'm so so proud of myself for hitting ALL of my quarter one goals and being able to treat myself to my prize with no guilt: hair extensions! I've had clip-in hair extensions before and they were nice and a great place to start off in the hair extension world. This time, though, I wanted to go all out and get . . .

I am SO SO SO excited to FINALLY reveal the big project we've been working on for over a month (and have been dreaming of for even longer.) I'm especially proud to share this because this was the first BIG home-improvement project we've taken on since buying our house last year. Yes, we've painted and bought new furniture, but this transformation involved building materials and drills and a power saw and tape measures and not going over budget. It was the biggest project we've done to date and we did it for UNDER 1,000 dollars. When Dustin and I first toured our house last year (when we were still in . . .
It's been a hot second since we caught up, so I wanted to take a moment to say hi and share what we've been up to lately. We've had a super busy April and as fun as it's been, I'm glad May is looking like it will be a little bit slower. We've got a lot of home projects we're trying to finish up before the hot weather comes and I would really like to get ahead of some of the blog projects I have been planning on for a while. Also, who else is excited for some sunshine and warm weather? It's still snowing up in the mountains here in Utah, but we've got 80-degree weather coming our way next week and I cannot wait! Life Updates Since we last chatted, . . .
Disclosure: This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of the Paper + Packaging Board Man, has it been crazy town over here. I keep saying to Dustin: "When things slow down, let's tackle this project" or "Let's wait until things slow down before we start working on that project."

I'm not complaining (much) because it's mostly been the good kind of busy - but I'm not going to lie, it's been hard for me to keep my head from falling off with everything I'm trying to juggle - especially now that I'm working a legit 9-5 real-world job again.
