It’s been a while guys! So I took some time Setting Out Our 2018 Goals.
Sometimes the best thing you can do is step aside from something for a period of time, as you will always come back stronger, fresher and with a whole new burst of energy. Over the last few weeks I’ve been feeling a lot more positive and started planning out the year ahead as detailed as a male can. So here’s me Setting Out Our 2018 Goals.
I don’t know if the wife has been rubbing off her positivity on me, or vice versa but we even got to the stage where we wanted to pick up a vlogging camera again and had even been discussing how we missed it. I’m guessing you could say it almost becomes a routine to Vlog things on the regular and having a regular uploading schedule each week. Now I’m not going to say it’s going to be a regimented upload on a Sunday every single week by a certain time without fail, but we will try our best. You can’t ask for much more than that surely!?
The one thing that has always been creeping up is the fact that I’m going to be 30 next year (*in theory*) and I wan’t to start Investing in our families future so to speak. With this being said, one of the key things I’m personally looking forward to a lot is buying another property to renovate and then look to either Sell or Rent-Out.
I’d say that Renovating a house is very stressful when it’s for yourself, however when you can come home each night to a clean house and have a shower it certainly takes the strain off it. On top of that, when you are renovating it for an end goal as opposed to for yourselves, it certainly eases the strains of choosing kitchens, bathrooms, paints, carpets etc. I know when we were renovating our new family home, their was many an argument over furnishings but that’s simply because we both have very different tastes and it was for us. If you know that when it’s finished you will be looking to offer it to the rental market, or re-sale, it turns more into a fluid process than a battle royale.
So with that said, we have placed a few offers, it is early days, but I’ll make sure that you’ll be the first to know when we get something accepted and will be both Blogging & Vlogging the full journey from Day 1 to End.
Another Road Trip
Yes, don’t you just know it! The next big thing when we were Setting Out Our 2018 Goals. Any West Coast Americans, prepare yourself as you’ve got two northerners coming for an adventure! I’d initially planned on a trip to Asia, but according to the wife, it was a fast No! This turned quickly accross to the East Coast of America, more-so in particular Orlando, Florida. Although in the back of my mind I had a feeling this would change again, I didn’t verbalise it and so we set out to start planning our East Coast trip. A few magazines and YouTube videos later Helen started to stumble and it was at this very point she mumbled out the words I’d been waiting to hear “Lets go back to Vegas & LA”
If only I was Vlogging that very second, I’d of loved to see my face as a I secretly squirmed inside like a child, whilst trying not wanting to scream out loud. WE ARE GOING BACK TO VEGAS BABY! Yes it’s true, it’s damn true. If you are reading this how I’m typing it, you’ll probably be feeling my passion and even have some goosebumps crawling up your arms currently.
Less of the rambling, more of the trip. So we are off out to America for a full month, landing in LAX before quickly picking up our car and driving out to Vegas for 4 nights of adult fun. Helen has apparently claimed she will calm down on the Slots this year. We will find out in a few months either way. The only other things we have currently really planned out is a trip to Disneyland California. We’ve ordered a 5 day park hopper pass and that couldn’t of went any smoother. It was ordered from Attraction Tickets Direct and turned up for Valentines Day!
It was picture perfect and as they say it’s sometimes the small things in life that put a smile on your face. So without even knowing it, Attraction Tickets Direct made our Valentines Day magical.
What Else In 2018
Who knows what else 2018 will bring!? We are only around 7 weeks into a 52 week year, and I’m sure there will be many more adventures and exciting things to come over the year. But if you enjoy a dose of Travel and Property mixed in with some male rambling every now and then, you really don’t want to go anywhere else. Bookmark the page, leave a follow on BlogLovin to get the latest updates and I’ll try my best to keep you entertained in the remaining 45 weeks of 2018!
