LOOKING AHEAD | Goals, Hopes & Dreams for 2017

Hello and a belated Happy New Year. Every year must come to an end and a new one must begin. I have to say that 2016 was a great year for us. We made so many changes to our home, finally got our little girl baptised and towards the end of the year things were looking great for my husband on the work front. 2017 we are ready for you!
Every January I love to make a list of resolutions for the coming year. I have found that this motivates me and gives me a good chance to reflect on the year gone by. I can pretty much say that I nailed last years resolutions except for the don't stress part, due to constant illness for all of us since October, it's been tough. But less stress is something that I can work towards with the upcoming year, and so I have been busy writing lists about my goals, hopes and dreams for 2017 that I'd like to share with you.
So looking at this very long list in front of me, it's a big one. I've decided to separate them into different parts of my life - the blog, being a parent and life!
1. Grow my social media following. I believe in setting myself reasonable followers goals and I don't want my goals way above what I'll reach so I have set a goal for all my social media platforms to 8,000. Are you following me?
2. Get more involved with my blog series #MotherhoodMondays. If you're interested leave me a lovely comment and I'll get in touch.
3. Try and go self-hosted. Any blog posts will be welcomed, hit me in the comments.
4. Collaborate with some more fantastic bloggers and exciting brands.
5. Totally nail the photography course I've signed up for.
1. Go to more toddler classes and sign up for that dance class that I keep putting off.
2. Say good riddance to that dummy! 6 days and counting!
3. Take little lady to swimming classes.
4. Nail potty training!
5. Prepare my daughter for nursery (Ok, prepare myself, but seriously already)
6. BONUS...my daughter asked for a kitchen, some ponies and a baby brother for Christmas. We got 2 out of 3 so for 2017 think about putting the last one into action.
1. Eat healthier and continue weight loss journey - 2 stones and counting.
2. Book a night away for our fourth anniversary without the little lady.
3. Drive more, because I'm pants at driving.
4. Up my exercise game.
5. Have more time for myself
I really do hope that I can achieve all my goals for 2017 or at least most of them. Please keep your fingers crossed guys and wish me luck. What are your goals, hopes and dreams for 2017?
Happy New Year


  1. I also want to go to a toddler class this year - I just need to pluck up the courage! I also plan to ditch the dummy - easier said than done though #thelistlinky

    1. We ditched the dummy in 6 days Kim. I couldn't believe it and all it took was the dummy fairy. We went to a class this week and we both had so much fun, feels good to speak to other adults again. Haha. x
