HOWDY & HAPPY NEW YEAR!

New Year, New Me. It's that time of year again to set new goals for ourselves. Here's some of our favorite New Year's Resolutions we've seen around the web. 
1. Our Personal Favorite: Eat more tacos.
2. Live my best life and only buy pants with no buttons or zippers.
3. Go outside. Among people.
4. Go on a vitamin and supplement shopping spree and finish at least one bottle before I give up.
5. Buy all leftover 2020 calendars and burn them.
6. Go viral on TikTok.
7. Never take HomeGoods trips or Texas Humor purchases for granted ever again.
8. Do so much athleticism that it actually justifies wearing athletic clothes 24/7.
9. Have eyebrows as symmetrical as a Wes Anderson movie.
10. Wake up before noon on the weekends.
11. Stop daring people to lick frozen flagpoles.
12.  Fart in front of my squad with no shame.
13. Use more chapstick.
14. Shop more sales.
15. Support local restaurants/Texan companies more often.
16. Stay in the bathroom while I brush my teeth... and not drink orange juice after.

18. Claim all my pets as dependents on my taxes.
19. Spend less than $2,439 at Whataburger this year.
20. Increase my Texan-ness.
