My 2015 Blog Goals + Giveaway

As bloggers, there are always improvements we hope to accomplish.  I would like to bring in the New Year with a bang! 2014 was one of the best years of my life.  I married my best friend, we went on an amazing honeymoon, we bought our first home, and so much more!  
I started a Weekend Recap with Bella, ran a few giveaways, created an Etsy Shop, Made my first Facebook page, and made new blogging friends. With that said, now that I have more free time {as I am not longer planning our wedding}  I can focus on getting things accomplished on this little ole' blog of mine.

Here's my current list I've compiled of what I'd like to accomplish in the upcoming 2015 year:

-Gain more blog followers
-Participate in more linkups/ giveaways
-Expand my Etsy shop
-Learn new design ideas and strategies
-Collaborate with new bloggers 
-Be more creative with your blog posts, create new ideas
-Lisa, you need to seriously use that Canon Rebel T3i you were gifted two Christmas's ago.  Start using those photos instead of your iPhone ya nut!
-Create new buttons


Linkup your Blog Goals for 2015!  (all I ask is that you include a link back to my blog in your post)






The linkup will run from Dec 16-January 4  

Aaaaaand, who wouldn't like to bring in the New Year with a *BaNg* ?  Thanks to Fresh Faces for making this Giveaway possible as well as all these lovely bloggers below-- you can win $375 !  Make sure to spread the word, this #giveaway is one you surely do not want to miss out on!

I changed my life entirely by stopping eating certain foods, as well as giving up soda...wahhhh!! I walk 2 miles every morning and do 30mins of cardio every evening. Now there are plenty of great side effect to weight loss. 1- The wonderful self confidence I got from completing such a monumental goal. I have been carrying that baby weight for years! Back down to 155 yipee!! The one bad side effect is that none of my clothed fit me any more!! Wahhh!! I'm happy about the shopping of course, but my wallet is not!! This gift card would be a great help, to a new thinner, healthier start of a wardrobe and new year! I'll be crossing my fingers!!
