Welcome 2009

Here are a few photos of our little family at the tail end of last year and early this year!

Well here we are a week into 2009 and so far so good I guess. I did carry over some of my crap mood from 2008 but I'm making a much more conscious effort to push past it. Mike and I have been trying to eat healthy and get some exercise in each day. I've been trying to start each morning with yoga in the hopes it will center and calm me - we'll see how that goes. The exercise thing hasn't been bad I really like to exercise but the eating thing has been tough it's only been a few days and already I feel like I want pizza in a big bad way but I'm pushing forward. Wish me luck!

Now that the holidays are over and the new year has started I want to get back to trying a new recipe a week. I'm sure the first several at least will be semi-healthy meals but I'm sure it won't be long before I try a sweet treat or two. I am considering pulling out one of the new cookbooks I got for Christmas out and finding a recipe for tonight. I will absolutely keep you posted.

I have yet to get into my craft room this year and I am hoping to get in there before this week is out. I have so many pictures I want to scrap, stories I want to tell and projects I want to try. I want to post a lot more fun things in the weeks and months to come so I guess I should really get working.

Next week John & Diana will be coming for a visit. It has been over a year since I've seen them and longer then that since Mike has seen them so I'm sure it will be a great visit. Mike has already spilled the beans on my birthday dinner plans and I'm super excited about that too!! And we are hoping to take a trip in February sometime so this will be a full year and hopefully a good one. I hope everyone else's 2009 is off to a fabulous start!

OK and now for the first contest of 2009 - What are your goals for this year? Post your answer in the comments and I will pick a winner on Monday!! As you know I send out little prizes so hopefully that is motivation enough!

Happy New Year Everyone! Let's make 2009 GREAT!

More Soon...

My goals for this year are to lose as much fat as possible, make more money, and continue to be generally happy. I was going to shoot for being nicer to people who annoy me, but who am I kidding? I stand a better chance of losing 50 lbs. :)

My goal is to lose 25 lbs, read at least 10 books, and have a positive attitude, especially about work!
