//Ringing in the New Year with my main squeeze//

Today is the final day of the Holiday Link Up with More Pieces of Me and On the Daily Express. Thanks to both of these wonderful ladies for hosting such a fun link up each week! Today's topic is all about New Year's Resolutions. Not going to lie, I had a very hard time deciding on mine this year. What are your resolutions? Share them in the comments below!

My 2014 Resolutions

1. Make the bed every morning

2. Travel; Whether traveling the world means leaving the country or driving 3 hours to St. Louis I want to go somewhere new and give in to my wanderlust.

3. Spend less time on my iPhone; I read on another blog recently that they don't use their phone from 5-8 PM each night. While I'm not setting a time limit on when I can't use my phone, I like the idea of trying to use it less. I would rather spend time with the people I'm with than scroll aimlessly through Instagram.

-----

Also, you may have noticed the blog looks a little different today! Since we're starting a new year I thought the blog needed a new look. I wanted something much more simple. Big thanks to Tyler for helping with the new design! Hope you all like the new, cleaner, look of A Memory of Us! We're still working on editing everything, so there may be more changes taking place over the next few days!


I would love it if you would follow me on GFC or BlogLovin'!

  8. It looks great the blog and I agree you should take a break from tech for few hours or even a day if you can I try to take a 3 hour break a day its hard since my job require for me to always be on the phone and also my blogging. instagram and twitter but I do I eat dinner without disturbance and spent time with my pups.

  10. i've reduced phone time too. all notifications are turned off from 9pm-6am and we are not allowed to touch our phones when we come home after work - home time is family time :)

  28. love the new design, i noticed it last night and was super impressed!!!

    i am definitely trying to be on my phone less too. matt and i have started by saying no phones at the table or in the car. so often we end up with them out at the table, how embarassing! and if he is driving often i will just whip mine out. gosh we are monsters!

    1. Thank you!! Tyler and I spent an embarrassing amount of time trying to figure it all out on Sunday haha. And yes in the car is when I'm the worst! I think that's when it bothers Tyler the most (especially when we are on long road trips to Omaha). I'm trying to get better!!

  34. I also need to spend less time on my phone... well actually electronics in general! Lol, I know for sure I spend more than 5 hours on them daily and that's super bad.
    I hope that you can accomplish all of your goals this year!

    Happy 2014 <3

  36. Super impressed with Tyler! It looks great - love the mint accents :)

    Love the travel resolution - it should probably be one of mine or I'll just keep being a homebody. Definitely something to think about - maybe we should plan an Omaha trip with the girls!

    1. I feel the same way, Mindy! Last night after we ate dinner I left my phone upstairs so that it wouldn't tempt me! Here's hoping I can get better at ignoring it throughout the year!
