Goodbye, 2011


The problem with getting a laptop for Christmas is that you're tempted to "check your email" before you even get out of bed in the morning, and next thing you know two hours have gone by and you're still there, playing on Pinterest.

I'm not saying I'm still in bed right now (at 10:30 am), but I'm not saying that I'm up either.

What I AM saying is that it's a good thing Christmas break is almost over. Things are just way too relaxed and low key around here!

But back to the point of this post. It's almost 2012!

It's been a wonderful year, full of many wonderful things for my family, and I'm excited for the new one. I don't have any set goals for the new year yet... I still have a whole day to come up with some after all, but I can guarantee that weight-loss and better eating habits are going to be in there somewhere. I started out 2011 with high hopes and dreams of weight loss, did pretty swell for half the year (losing 16 pounds), and then failed miserably the second half. (I'm not a good winter eater. And I'm not going to tell you how much I gained back.) Things definitely need to change. And THEY WILL, BY GOLLY.

I also went into 2011 dreaming of being in our new add-on by the end of the year, and let me tell you... we are so, sooo close. There is literally 4 or 5 things left to do, and we just need to take the time to do them, mid-basketball season or not. I can't wait to share pictures of the room all completed.

So okay, maybe my 2011 goals weren't quite completed, but that's not going to stop me from making new ones.

Here's to a Fabulous NEW YEAR!


  1. You are beautiful and your wise posts are the ones I look forward yo because you are a normal size, like me. :)
    Those unfinished things, well, they'll get done in time.

  2. Stupid word prediction! I meant to say I love your what I wore Wednesday posts because you are a normal sized female! You give me inspiration. Keep up the good work!

  3. Haha, Cheri! But I liked the idea of having "wise posts" ;) Seriously though, thank you very much!!

  4. Happy New Year to you! :) I would be the same way if I had a lap top.....I want one SO SO SO bad! Maybe next Christmas! :)

    Take care!
