So first of all – do you like my “new look”?!?! I guess you can tell where we’re headed this month! Whooooo hoooo! This will be our first time as family to go, and I’m here to tell you now: this has been a dream of mine for years and years. You just have no idea. To grow up in California myself, and to visit Disneyland – it was just such a big part of my childhood. Some of my happiest memories for sure. So you can imagine how I feel about sharing that experience with my two sweeties. We’re beyond excited – that just doesn’t even cover it. All you “been there, done that” people who have taken young children – feel free to leave your tips for survival and fun in my comments!
As a gift from a dear friend, we’ve had a little countdown calendar on the kitchen counter for over a month and it’s been so fun to have it and to have a visual of how fast our special departure day is arriving! Isn’t it just darling!?
(This is an old pic – our departure day is a secret! Shhh….)
Meanwhile – let’s not forget that today marks the first day in our new challenge “31 Day to KICK a Bad Habit”. I know this is difficult. If bad habits were easy to break – we’d all be bad habit free, eh? Instead, all of us struggle with one thing or another – so you are not alone. If you need a recap of what the challenge entails, read THIS POST.
Otherwise, just commit to drop a bad habit – cold turkey – for the month of March. You can talk about it on your blog, you can comment here, you can e-mail me, or you can totally keep it to yourself. But I would suggest letting at least one person in on your challenge, so you can have an accountability partner. Just my $.02. Much easier to accomplish that way…
So here’s mine – and I’m skipping the details. Nail biting. Ugly, ugly, nasty habit. Hate it. But I’ve struggled with it since 1st grade. Yes, that long. That’s like 231 years in Dog Years. Ugh. I have had very little success in trying to kick it. Did you know it has a name? Onychophagia. Ugly name for an ugly habit. So I’m not posting pics – yuck – or whatever. I’m just going to do my best to KICK it! I’ll talk about it – I’ll post about it….I’ll attempt to understand why the heck it’s so hard to kick. And maybe – 31 days of finding something else to do with my nervous hands will find me on the other side of this challenge with a spray of colors on my nails? Who knows.
If you want to take part in the challenge on your blog – be sure to grab the image below and link it back to Bushel & A Peck! (oh, and let me know in the comments so I can brag about ya on the blog!)
