Window Shopping Online?

Since I'm not shopping for clothes in 2013, (remember shoes don't count) let's do some window shopping online shall we?

Of course, as soon as I set my goals for 2013, I found the site www.modcloth.com
Ummmm... have you seen this site? In case you haven't, hold on to your wallets! This site is full of feminine, retro, and adorable dresses.

So...here are the ones that I want (in case someone decides to give me a gift anytime soon...hint hint). Come in Dandy Dress - Red, Buttons, Casual, Twofer, Tank top (2 thick straps), Mid-length, White, Lace, Scoop, Top Rated

This dress...is so cute. I guess I could try and sew a dress like this...if I wanted to.
Also, check out the customer reviews. I love how this site has pictures of real customers wearing the clothes and what they really think about them.

2013 Goal Setting

2013 Goals...because resolutions are so 2012!

Goal #1 (and this is a big one): To NOT purchase any new article of clothing for myself in 2013

This is a big one for me...I'm sure if I sat down and analyzed how much money I spent on material items in the past year, I would cry! Also, this is goal excludes shoes and gifts for others.

Goal #2: Replenish my savings

After two once in a lifetime trips (Alaska & Peru) this year, my savings haven't been added to as much as I previously planned. 

Goal #3: Eat healthier

Notice I didn't say, "lose weight." I just want to be more conscious of what I'm putting in my body. For now, this means trying a gluten free diet.

Goal #4: Help my sister-in-law's family get their Visa approved so they can visit from Peru

This involves the United States Embassy and the fact that the Embassy has accepted their parent's money/application fee, denied their request and told them to keep trying! 

Goal #5: Give more

Tithe more, donate more to charities...not just money but also of my time and resources.
