    What a fun spin on resolution posts. :) This year I’m NOT giving up: green smoothies, training #proof pics, instagram (I love it too!)!

    My list includes coffee and saving mementos, too. I just started on Instagram recently, but I love it – I won’t be changing that this year, either!

    What a fun concept!! I’m not giving up coffee either. Or chocolate. Or the occasional froyo. Oops–all food-related! ;-) and I take feet pictures too!!! no shame in yo’ game!

    I LOVE #7! I will not be giving up coffee, snuggling with my dogs, wine and continuing to try to make leggings an acceptable form of business casual.

    I like how you think because it looks like we’ve got a lot in common. I too do not intend to give up coffee anytime soon, especially lattes or gourmet coffee period! I also love wine way too much, especially red! If you like red you need to try menage a trois! Yes I will admit I’m also a hoarder. I’ve gotten better, but there are some mementos that are just worth keeping! I love anything that reminds me of my childhood for instance. To add to your list, I would say I plan to keep my boyfriend around ;) I’m one lucky gal to have him in my life! I also plan to keep chocolate in my life especially molten lava cake!

    Nicely done list! I’ve discovered a work-around for #9: stretchy skinny jeans. They FEEL just like leggings or yoga pants, but they look like jeans. They’re even fine for trying #3 if you get stretchy enough ones. :)

    Ohhhh, I like this spin on the new year posts!! I need to think about the things I won’t give up and get back to you. Coffee with a sweet creamer may be mine. It would be ice cream, but I think I over did it a couple of years ago and now I don’t crave it as much!

    I will not give up coffee (I look forward to it EVERY morning), baked treats, Pepsi (on weekends), and traveling (I did wonder if I’d done too much this past year because all my holiday time has been away and abroad, and not getting things done at home).

    With regards to scones, have you had clotted cream and jam on a scone?????? Best ever! That, or fresh strawberries.

    I will not give up on my blog. There have been a few times over the past few months when I have seriously thought about it but I realized while I was on break over the holidays that I need it. I may not need to write every single day and I may not need the amount of social media that goes with it but I do need it to exist.
    Oh and we need to get together and have some ice cream because even though I plan to cut back on my giant, nightly portion…I will NEVER give it up!

    I don’t plan on changing my nightly bowl of ice cream =) My husband and I split a bowl (with whipped cream and chocolate syrup) after the kids are asleep. I’m sure I’ll eventually get sick of it – but it’s a nice sweet treat at the end of a long day.
