New Year, New me.

I kind of feel like I should re-introduce myself.  My apologizes for being absent for the most of December.  I finally took a break from the blogging world and LIVED.  

And I am so glad that I did.  I spent time with my family, Brian's family, friends, and gained a new outlook on life.  I'm turning over a new leaf in this little corner of mine on the blog-o-sphere.

So, let me back up with Christmas.  

The unofficial Christmas card.  I totally slacked getting a picture of the real one posted this year too.  Hey, don't judge.  We are barely back from the honeymoon, ha!

Anyway, the hubs did a good job this year by getting me a new Bible (with my married name), a Keurig, and a MICHAEL KORS.  [Sidenote: I might or might not have cried over that one!]

It was a great time hanging out with family and getting some much needed "life" back in me. 

But it is GOOD to be back.  I've missed you ladies and I have tried to keep up with others blogs here and there, but let's face it- I got too behind. 

So, if I missed something big in your life, bare with me! :)

So.  That brings me to 2014.

And I was in bed around 9:30 last night so, so no wild party pictures from me for this year.  I'm pushing 30 and I can feel it more

But, I do have some new years resolutions. Aside, from the obvious weight loss that a million other Americans are swearing to do, I want to get a better "Kayla" all around.  I want to lose around 10-15 lbs, but I've decided I'm not going on some crazy diet.  I can't win at diets.  I'm just going to eat smaller portions and try and control the sugar and bread intake! :)

Speaking of food and the temptation that comes along with it, I am starting a Bible Study (with my wedding photographer!) very soon.  If you are interested and want to participate, then please see THIS WEBSITE and join in, and please let me know you are doing so!  I would love to have you to discuss it with as well!

Another resolution that is dear to my heart is one that I have tried at three times, and failed.
But this will be the magic year for me.  I just feel it.  I am going to read the Bible through THIS PLAN I found via one of my favorite bloggers, Nicole, who is a God-loving woman.  I strive to have a mindset more like hers. I can't wait to strengthen my heart, my mind, and my relationship with God.

So, I'm back ladies.  And I'm ready to give 2014 the best it can be! :)


  1. It's so easy to get behind on blogging, but I certainly don't think you have to apologize for it! Still, I can definitely imagine that it's fun to get back into the swing of things again!

  2. My focus is just to be a better me too :) Glad you had a good first married Christmas!
