Reflecting on Last Year and Setting Goals for the New Year

  1. Janice says:

    Would love to hear more about your meal planning and I want to be Deb when I grow up. You guys have brought me so much joy on Instagram. Thanks a zillion times for that!!

  2. Lynn says:

    Thank you both for taking us on this crazy journey we call life…day in and day out. Now, what are you making us for dinner?

  3. BOBBI says:

    Love to hear about meal planning and recipes…especially for two. I’m such a homebody as well so one of my goals is to get out more but I also have to schedule the outing or I will have 1000 reasons not to go. Looking forward to following you in 2019!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      hahaha trust me. I do the same. We have to MAKE ourselves go some place otherwise we would stay home.

    I would be very interested in hearing more about your meal planning. I hate hate hate to cook; but I have to do it. It is only for my husband and I but I really dislike cooking. Part of the problem is that my husband has very irregular hours. He owns his own retail store. So he may come home at 6:00, 6:30, 7:00. So it is very hard to prepare a meal and have it have to sit there until he comes home. He is not that picky of an eater although he isn’t into anything spicy so if I prepare Mexican food, it’s not his favorite and it is mine.

    I like your idea of setting goals and not resolutions. My plan is to set a daily goal of organizing something. A drawer, a closet, etc. If I look at the whole picture it is too overwhelming. So I am going to break it down. Thank you for all the laughs you provide. And I live in Nebraska so I too understand the long long winter days when it feels like bedtime at 6:30~~~

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Awwwwww…. I get it. I struggle so back with the darkness. I feel like it’s time to go to bed at 6. We are out of town for a week coming up, so I plan on getting all of my goals started after that. We will be with friends, sooooooooo ????

    I’m not sure where you are in Indiana, but we follow a fabulous musical family from Columbus, Indiana. Tim Grimm is an amazing song writer as well as a fabulous folk singer. At times he performs with his wife Jan Lucas Grimm, their sons Conor and Jackson. They are all fabulous. Wonderful people as well. You can find his schedule by googling Tim Grimm. Jan Lucas Grimm is also an actress and she’s performing in Indianapolis at the Phoenix Theatre this month in a one woman play called “Apples in Winter.”

    We’re from Wisconsin and we traveled with Tim and Jan to the Netherlands in October. It was wonderful.

    Not like a Pink concert, but a great experience.

    Loving you on IG!

    You really are a ‘together’ person, Danelle, but still so relatable as we all have that dream of creating goals, following through, or not. And then we laugh, but not as cute as you do!! As I get older it has become harder and harder to want to head out, but I do. It’s good to have a change of scenery. It actually makes you appreciate home more. The Indianapolis State Fair has awesome concerts and if you make it a weekend trip, the fair is a lot of fun. I love all sorts of music, but you can’t deny a country act…okay, I just want to LOOK at Luke Bryan, and Miranda Lambert is such a rebel. Bucket List.

    I’ve told you ladies before, I’m a Chicagoan who has a home on a lake in the country in Michigan, just over the Indiana border. Again. the invitation is extended if you ever head up that coast of Michigan—South Haven, Saugatuck…wherever your hearts take you. We take in guests like stray dogs (errrrr…not like you guys are–forget it). But puleeeeeeeze look me up. A guest house and small time pleasures of kayaking and cocktails on our little beach. And lots of antiquing all around.

    I want to give you a big thanks, Danelle, for giving me a like on IG. I’ve been long-time blogger (and a newspaper columnist, which makes me very longwinded…duh), but IG is a whole new ball game. Maybe someday I’ll do stories, I am confident the fifties ain’t the end thanks to you both! Kudos, ladies!! 🙂


    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Oh my gosh… you are so sweet. Saugatuck is one of our favorite places to visit in the Fall. I just love it up there. I will for sure keep that in mind. It sounds like you own a little piece of heaven.

    Hi Danelle! Happy New Year sweet lady! I want to say thank you to you and Deb for making me laugh every day on IG. I truly look forward to your stories and of course your beautiful pictures on your feed too! Give Ivy a hug for me because she has got to be the sweetest love bug I’ve seen in forever! HUGS! 🙂

    P.S. I blogged about my health problems this week and if you have time (lol) to read it, I hope you will. Tell all the land, I would never want anyone else to go through what I did!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Thank you so much for the kind words. And oh my gosh… I will for sure check it out.

  8. Lynne says:

    I have recently discovered you and Deb on IG – I love your stories, they start each of my mornings off with a laugh. One of my goals this year is to make headway on our debt load. Although I think we do a decent job at meal planning, we can do better. I loathe the grocery store, so the less time spent there, the better. Sadly, my husband loves the grocery store, and sometimes deviates a bit more from the list than our budget is comfortable with, or worse yet, we end up at the store with no list at all, and that’s a recipe for disaster.. A better meal plan and a better list will help our budget and our stress levels!
