A New Year, A New Direction

The title of this post has been on my mind all day long and every time I say it to myself, I can't help but think of my six year old's favorite boy band, One Direction.  This blog has been a "one direction" blog since I started writing here -- snacks based on stories (books to be exact) and that is it.

I'm just not so sure that I want to stay on the "one direction" track.  I like creating snacks to go with books, but I feel like there is SO MUCH MORE that I want to share here.  I miss blogging about fun products, crafts, ideas, and whatever is on my mind.  I miss sharing things that I love!  (For those of you who may not know, I used to blog publicly at Superheroes and Princesses, but I made that blog private a little over a year ago).

I considered starting a new blog, but honestly, I have been there, done that.  I'm not interested in starting all over again.  So, for now, my intention is to move forward in a new direction, or many new directions by posting more than just snacks and stories here.  I hope you will come along for the ride!

With that being said, I thought I would share some goals for the year.

It's not too late to write down goals for the year.  This printable can be found at Little Wonders' Days.

My two middle children and I completed these 2013 papers this week.  Here are some of our goals:

Me:  visit my sister, learn more about my camera, exercise, menu plan, more saving, and be able to run 3 miles by the end of the year (lame, I am so bad at running)

C (8):  wants to go to Germany (probably not happening this year bud) and be able to compete in Lego competitions by the end of the year

R (6):  wants to go to NY, learn about elephants and pandas, try skiing, and be able to do a backwards flip by the end of the year

Do you have any goals for the year?


  1. Keep the posts coming... we love them all. :)

  2. I'm so glad you were able to use our printable, thanks for the shout out. I always love your posts, so I can't wait to see what else you do. Happy New Year.

  3. I need to create goals for the year..... So much to do in a very short amount of time.

  4. You have so much to share! It's definitely a great idea to keep it in one place and share more fun ideas right here! Thanks for all you do.

  5. Sounds great! I like the 2013 goals sheet. Cute idea. I'm not sure about my blog yet. Abby usually tells me she doesn't want me to take pics of her stuff.

  6. It would be great to see more of you on this blog :) Great goals. Anna wants to go to the snow, learn cursive and be more organized :)
