And It's Back To Real Life

The holidays are officially over and it's back to "real life" once again.
Have you un-decorated yet?
Have you started eating healthy and exercising again?

I usually start un-decorating the day after New Year's,
 so I guess I better get busy huh?
Why is it always such a chore to un-decorate,
 but so much fun to decorate?
 Is anyone else trying to change their diet after
 a month long food indulgence?
We just have to get through the first 3 days,
 then it isn't so bad...right!
Oh, yea
I think it's the same 3 day rule for exercise as well.
I have to give outfit credit here to husband. 
 Pretty much everything I have on he gave me for Christmas.
He did good right.

Speaking of new clothes...
I have also decided to participate in the #2014closetremixchallenge.

That entails...no shopping, remixing my closet
 and inspiring others on Instagram.
If you aren't already following me,
 please do so to see how long I last on this challenge.

What are the things that constitute getting back to "real life" for you?

I am with you, Brett! I have a lot of work to do before I return to the classroom on Monday! I always get a little sad when I put Christmas away...it went too fast this year. You look awesome...love your mix of colors in this outfit!

Yes, we have un-decorated; my youngest daughter's birthday is Jan 3rd so I like to have all the Christmas stuff put away so her special day isn't overshadowed.
I do feel like I need to get back to our usual routine and not be quite so indulgent, though I don't know how long that feeling will last... Lovely outfit, your husband chose very well, he's a clever man! xxx

I always put off undecorating as long as possible...I just love how pretty it all looks! Happy New Year, you look adorable!

Brett, I love you outfit and am totally impressed that hubby bought it for you! I am so sad when the decorations come down, I hope the lights last a bit longer in NY, the short days really need these bright lights.
happy 2014!
XX, Elle

Your husband did very well indeed.

It's the 4th and I still haven't undecorated. Actually, I just wasn't that excited to decorate in the first place for some reason. I'm shooting for Tuesday, the day my kids go back to school and I finally get the house back to myself for a few hours. ;)
