If you wonder why the site it looking odd, it's because I've made the switch to Wordpress. It's been a long time coming and with the new year, I figured why not start it fresh. My time with blogger has been amazing, it's just time to move onto bigger things. Wordpress allows me to have a few more options with me blog. You can now visit me at my same address... www.everythingemilyblog.com

Thank you all for following along here on blogger! Can't wait to show you what all I have in store for the blog this year!


January 1, 2015


I hate to see such a great year end, but I'm excited to see what 2015 has in store for myself and my little family. 2014 was such a fabulous year filled with traveling, moving, and a whole new chapter of life for us... I looked back at my 2014 goals and I must say I achieved nearly all of them except for a few. I look back at this past year and it has been such a learning lesson for myself and what I want to do/be in life... We wrapped up 2014 with a new home, a new place, and a new chapter so I know 2015 is going to be great! Here are few self goals and goals for my little blog this year.

Myself -

Further my education - I've been interested in completing a nutrition program for a few months now and this year I'm going to make it happen. I feel like I've spent so much time in school that I ask myself "is this right for me?" "Would I be good at it?".. It's time to stop worrying about those things and just go for it...

Be more selective - With my choices, with friends, with everything. Less is really more in so many ways... That's my motto for 2015.

Read more books.

Get established with a church in the area.

Kick the caffeine - I said this last year but as of tomorrow I will not be drinking any more soda. The side effects are terrible and until I drink just one and be satisfied, I won't be drinking them any more.

Exercise - I'm 115 pounds of no muscle tone. I always feel and sleep better when I exercise. I don't plan on getting a gym membership or anything of that sort, but I do plan on lifting a few kettle bells around the house and walking/running when the weather is nice.

Buy a home - We have already started browsing homes here in ND and I pray this is they year we are in a home we OWN. Jacob and I have agreed to not rush into anything and wait for the right home to come along... easier said than done when your third floor apartment living with a busy 2 year old and a dog.. but we can do it!

Step out of my comfort box - This year I will try new things, decorate my house in a color other than those of the neutral palette, wear things I usually wouldn't but would love to try...

and lastly...

Have another baby (maybe) - This has been a topic between Jacob and I here lately.. Not sure if we are ready with all the new changes that have recently taken place in our lives, but you never know.. I don't want Asher to be an only child. Maybe this will be the year we expand our little family. Maybe.

Blog -

Blog more - 3 days a week is my goal for 2015.

Share more DIY projects and Recipes - I love making things/cooking and this year I have GOT to share more of those.. Those are by far my most popular content and I need to stop wondering if they will go over well and just do it. If I like them that's all that counts right?!

Switch to Wordpress - I have went back and forth with this decision and I will be switching to Wordpress early this year. Blogger has been so good to me, but it's time for new platform.

Share more personal posts - I always don't know what to write or feel like I will just sound silly and this year I need to put those worries aside and share more from my heart... Lots more.

Update my social media more often.


Connect with other bloggers!

Hopefully I will accomplish all of these goals in 2015. Thank you all for your support, comments, kind words, and time. You make this little blog of my a dream and I can't thank you enough. I wish you all an incredibly Happy New Year filled with lots of love and peace! May all of your 2015 goals and dreams come true!
