Up Close and Personal with Heather Lawless

I'm so excited to introduce you to a new series starting today.  Up Close and Personal is a chance for me to introduce you some of my blog friends.  I really think that you're going to enjoy this series.

(You may remember a few other of my blog friends: Brit, Lauren, and Jennifer.)

I know that I'm always looking for new bloggers to follow and connect with.  If I am surely some of you may be too.  The bloggers that I introduce you to in this series are trust ladies.  I value the content of their blogs and find them to be uplifting and encouraging individuals.

The plan is to have a blogger to introduce to you every Thursday so make sure you come back every week.

I was first introduced to Heather through my sister, Dalayna.  Heather hosted a giveaway on her blog.  I started exploring the Lawless Life and realized that Heather and I have a lot in common.   

She loves Jesus.  She loves her family.  She believes in life.  She believes that women have the power to create the world they want to live it.  Oh, and she loves to shop. 

Make sure to stop by her blog.  And if you're looking for Thirty-One products she's got them!

So without further ado, I give you Heather from the Lawless Life.

Happy New Year little love bugs!

I am blessed to be posting over here at All my love for all my days...I adore Danette...shes pretty much the coolest. Her blog is so full of life, and meaning...and I love reading it. So today you get me...like it or not!

Lets talk about New years resolutions....Like how none of us ever stick to them. 

(except for this one...I can totally stick to this one)

Its so crazy to see how many people make the resolution to lose weight and then go to the gym twice. Or people who vow to eat better, then are at mcdonalds after 4 days. Hey, I am right there with the best of them. 

But last year I found something that made me feel better about myself made me seem like I didn't suck so much at resolutions. I made little goals....

Month1 : I will not buy any clothing for myself for 1 month (dont judge, I like to shop)
Month 2 and 3: No fast food
Month 3 and 4: Read my bible every day in the morning AND at night
Month 4 and 5: Make dinner at home every night (except date night)

Get it? These small goals seemed much more manageable and when I completed them I felt so good about myself. I felt like I had actually accomplished something. 

How about you? Did you make any new years resolutions? How are you planning on sticking to them? Do you have an accountability partner, if its something serious? 

I think that making goals for your life are awesome...but sometimes its good to set short term goals, and then once you reach those...you feel like you can do anything. 

Here's to a FABULOUS 2013....I hope all of you are blessed beyond measure!! XOXOX


  1. Very good idea with the goals for each month instead of a whole year. I have actually stopped fast food pretty much completely. I didn't realize it happened until one day when I went to McDonalds and was grossed out while eating it.

    1. Ok. I have a confession. I love McDonald's fries a lot, but every time I go through the drive thru window I almost get sick with the smell. Ew...

      But I still like their fries. :)

  2. Hi, Danette! New GFC follower from the Almost Friday Thursday blog hop! Would love to have you swing by and follow back if you get the chance!

    Have a great day!

  3. I love the monthly goal idea. Not buy any clothes for yourself for a month-that is do able. Or make dinner every night. One month is a whole lot less than 12. Great plan. I'm going to have to mull over this.

    1. I'm a shopper too so I'm with Heather on the not buying cloths thing.

  4. I love the idea of setting monthly goals like this. Smart thinking lady! I use to be one of those who would make lots of resolutions and never keep them longer than a few months. However, last year I got inspired & found a way (praise the lord) that worked to keep my resolutions. I'm still working on my list for 2013. Enjoyed your post! Heading over to your blog.

  5. What a great post...it takes forever to get into a habit. Love the idea of this post.
    Have a great Thursday!!


    1. Thanks Candice!

      It's supposed to take 21 days to start a new habit. I think my main problem is I get to day 5 or 6 and then just forget all about it.

  6. This is a wonderful exercise in breaking larger goals (or resolutions) down in to manageable pieces. Happy New Year!!!!


    1. Thank you!

      I know Heather appreciates that too.

  10. Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking
    at options for another platform. I would be awesome
    if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
