Goodies for a New Year

I hope the first few days of this new year are treating you well!   It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve talked with y’all.  In fact other than Saturday Dishes, I haven’t posted anything since before Christmas.  The days between Christmas and New Years were good and a wonderful time to look back at the last year and all the wonderful things that happened.  We shared our top five posts of 2013 on our Facebook page.  Here they are in case you missed them:

5. English Toffee     4. Five Favorite Clean Up Games
3. A Month of Cookies – 31 Recipes
2. BBQ Chicken Sandwiches   1. Crockpot Chicken Posole 

Personally, 2013 was a great year too!  We had a lot going on!  Here are my favorite moments of the last year.

best of 2013Kerry bought a house
Jamie had a baby girl, Jamie and I turned 30
I had an awesome vacation to Idaho with a trip to Yellowstone, Kerry and I threw a party for our mom


But I’m also super excited about a new year.  I’m not much of a resolution kind of girl but I do love the newness and fresh start that a new year brings! And I also need to get myself back in gear with healthier eating, exercise, meal planning and a lot of other stuff I’ve slacked off on.  Anyone else?  

So to get our new year off to an awesome start, I’ve collected some new year goodies to get us all ready.

A brand new year deserves a new computer background right?

 If you are trying to be more organized or be more efficient, you need a killer to-do list, right?

I plan on framing my to-do list and using dry erase marker so I can re-use the same one over and over again.   

I know ones of things I need to get back to is planning meals and cooking at home.  Luckily for us, Kerry does the planning for us: January Menu Plan  or if you like to plan your own, she has a fantastic printable calendar for 2014!  

Do you need a good, easy and healthy snack to keep you on track, this new year?  Check out Jamie’s Granola Bites!

I love the idea of printing these out and using a dry erase marker! The days when I use a to-do list usually end up being much more organized days for me. Thanks so much for sharing this with our Frugal Crafty Home readers!
