Walter Mitty and the New Year

I just saw this movie with Katie, and I loved it so much. It had a little of everything, and I left feeling so happy! Definitely one of my new favorite movies. I am probably going to buy the soundtrack today (I own like 3 albums in iTunes, so that's actually a big deal for me).

I'm excited for 2014. I'm ready for a new year.

My song for the year is Sarah Bareilles's "Brave" (I also really love the video!)
I want to be able to handle all the situations I get so nervous about. I feel like during the last half of 2013 I made a lot of progress in this area, and I'd really like to see what I am capable of this year. I like this line from the song:

"Show me how big your brave is!"

My major personal goal for the year is to continue to improve my meal planning so that Andrew and I can eat healthy home-cooked meals.

My spiritual goal for the year is to improve my scripture study. I want to take time every day to read from the scriptures, but also find ways to deepen my study and improve my relationship with my Heavenly Father. I also want to finish reading the Book of Mormon again (I'm in 2nd Nephi so far). My dad is encouraging anyone and everyone to join in, and I'm hoping that my jump start will keep me going!

Here's to finding more things to love and enjoy this year.


  1. Seeing that movie with you was one of the best parts of my Christmas break! So glad it worked out and that we got to get some delicious cupcakes at the same time! Miss you already!

  2. I'll have to see the movie!! So, how's your meal planning going? I'm diving into that for our family lately. Just curious how you are doing!
