20 in 2020

2020 is here! I’m really excited for this year, I’m turning 30, Chris & I will celebrate our 5 year anniversary, we’ll add a new baby to our family, just so many good things! Last year I was inspired by the Happiness Podcast by Gretchen Rubin & made a list of 19 things in 2019. It seemed a lot more feasible than making vague resolutions & I made my list with both small one time tasks or events, as well as some bigger longer term items. I didn’t cross everything off, but I did quite a bit & it was fun to keep looking at it throughout the year. This year I did the same thing for 2020. So today I’m sharing my list.

  1. Go to the dentist! proud to say this got done Jan 2nd! I’m terrible at going to the dentist & it was embarrassingly overdue….
  2. Try to eliminate single use plastics
  3. Celebrate Juno’s 1/2 birthday – dogs aren’t around long enough to only celebrate once a year.
  4. Fix my headlight – another embarrassingly overdue issue.
  5. Complete Barre Blend – the 6 week program I currently started
  6. Eat less meat – I’m trying to eat at least one vegetarian dinner a week & go veggie for lunch!
  7. Daily gratitude
  8. Go away just Chris & I – our only nights away since Will was born was when Chris was in the ICU, not ideal.
  9. Stop buying paper towels
  10. Do seasonal crafts with William
  11. Get our cars detailed
  12. Charge phone not next to bed
  13. Read 6 books – I read a book in 3 days over Christmas & it totally inspired me!
  14. Declutter kitchen
  15. See Marin light house
  16. Have a year round garden / compost
  17. Limit phone use to less than 2 hours / day
  18. Celebrate my 30th birthday
  19. Complete our 2019 photobook
  20. Have this baby!!

I feel pretty good about this list & that I’ll be able to tackle most of the things on here or at least try! This year I’m really trying to focus on sustainability & decreasing waste so you might notice a handful of my things on the list revolve around that. There’s also lots of fun stuff including a new family member, which is just still WILD to think about.

We’re growing!

We’ve been keeping a little secret & it feels so good to finally announce it! We couldn’t be more excited to welcome our new addition come April! It’s surreal to think that as I type this out I’m officially 19 weeks, one week from the halfway mark. Pregnancy is an odd mixture of both being unbelievably excited as well as not wanting to jump the gun when it comes to clearing out a bedroom or assembly baby furniture. Then before you know it you have a few months under your belt & suddenly feel like the to-do list exploded. I’m so excited to get started on the nursery, we’re taking out the last of the furniture tomorrow!! And stay tuned I’ll be posting some of my first trimester must have items in the next few weeks.
