My Annual Meme~

So my 3 resolutions for 2013 did not go so well.. Hoping that 2014 is my year! Here they are exactly as they were one year ago:

    Get Healthy: Exercise, eat healthier & lose weight.
    Save Money: Build Savings Account; only buy what I will use & stop impulse buying.
    Blog More: I am going to really try to get back into blogging regularly. It’s more for me as a place where I can look back at later. I really regret not blogging the past few years.
