The first month of 2022 has come & gone!
All I can say it, has been one hell of a busy month!
We rang in the new year in sunny Saint Lucia this year. It felt so nice spending the week in the Caribbean sun, not worrying about a damn thing. We didn’t leave the resort but it was a beautiful island, the water was refreshing & crystal clear, all I can say is I missed beach vacations.
We did celebrate our delayed Christmas with ‘P’s family as well. It was nice to be able to see everyone finally & just celebrate.
Coming into the new year, I knew this year would be another crazy one & that I needed to really tackle my budgeting & saving more this year. I did spend some time making a budget spreadsheet for me to track both my monthly & yearly spending/savings. So we’ll see how this goes!
Reading: New Year, New Reading Goals. I kept my same reading goal as last year (55 books), not only because I didn’t hit it last year but also because I knew this was going to be a busy year. I needed something manageable. I am already off to a decent start which is extremely exciting.
Fitness wise: I have been doing Melissa Wood Health workouts & Peloton workouts pretty well daily this month. It’s been a nice mix of cardio, strength & both yoga/pilates. It has been so nice mixing yoga & pilates back into my workout rotation.
I have also started trying to take daily or every other day afternoon walks as well (obviously depending on how cold it is outside). This has been a total lifesaver for me during the week. I really don’t move much in general & want to up my daily step count (even though I don’t track that anymore).
Now that we are just under 10 months out from saying ‘I Do’ there was a whole lot to do again. I set up our wedding website, we sent our invitations out to get printed, we saw our floral mock-ups, had our second interview (2 out of 4 done) with the priest, & even signed up for our marriage course. You can say it’s been a busy month on the wedding side.
Work has been busy, work has been meh, work has been a whole lot. I am now done month 3 of waiting for my new contract, so I’m just starting to get really antsy.
I did celebrate my 1 year work anniversary with this company so that was exciting, especially seeing how much we grew as a company.
I did hire someone who is starting tomorrow, which is exciting. They’ll be working really closely with me & I’ll be able to pass a few things off to them which will be nice.

Omg seriously! So because we are getting married in a Catholic Church, we have to go through a required marriage course that is literally 6 weeks long, with Covid they are now online but yeah. And then our priest likes to meet you & talk & pretty well just interview us constantly to make sure we really want to do this.
But wow that is literally shocking, everyone I know has had to, & if you don’t you can’t get married in the church 🤯
Ooooo wow! But it makes sense as well. You don’t want to be in a bad marriage and divorce is a nono lol
