3 {January} Resolutions Update

Vintage Pom-Pom Trim + Love Plate from World Market + Live What You Love Print from Hijirik Studio

So here is my update on how my resolutions are going:
1. ARE exams: I've been studying away...Two more tests down!
2. Work: I'm still working hard, but trying my best not to get too stressed. I'll give this one a check.
3. Finances: I am doing really well with this one! This month I paid off three small credit cards...yeah!
4. The budget: Check plus!
5. NO shopping until May: Ok, so I did a TINY bit of shopping. My purchases are pictured above. The pom-pom trim I have actually been searching for for quite sometime- it will grace my tiny Christmas tree next year. The plate I purchased on a day of depression, but at least it was just a plate. And the print I just love. I am always on the lookout for art that speaks to me, and this fit the bill. Grand total of unnecessary spending for the entire month of January....$25. I think this is pretty good for one month. Honestly, although there were moments that I wanted to buy other things, it feels really good to have not. Now, these items feel like real treasures.
6. Living Room Make-over: I'm trying to pace myself on this one, but I think I have found some good couch options. {The Jasper is definitely in the lead.}
7. Fitness: I have been doing really well in this department. I have been doing at least 30 minutes of exercise almost everyday. I'm quite proud of myself. As a mentioned last weekend, I have even started walking to the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings {it isn't that far, but I always used to drive. this also discourages me from going shopping afterwards}
8. Growing the blog: Still need to work on this one, but I have been blogging very consistently...50 posts this month, which I think is a record for me.

Not too bad for a month!

I'm not going to lie and tell you it has been easy, but also not as difficult as I thought. I keep trying to remember the big picture...
