To a New Year...

We are just days away from celebrating the close to 2010 and welcome to 2011. This is a great time to set New Years Resolutions. Personally, New Years is a really over rated holiday. Maybe it has something to do with not being able to stay awake past 10:30pm and not drinking alcohol. But, I do like to set resolutions. It is a great time for me to prioritize my life and decide how I want things to be different in the New Year. And since I'm posting my resolutions on my blog, you're all going to hold me accountable right?

My New Years Resolutions for 2011:
1) Really utilize my gym membership by going at least 4 times per week
2) Shop wisely using coupons and price matching and STICK TO MY BUDGET
3) Spend more time at home giving Sara the time to develop her imagination
4) Read as often as I can, especially my scriptures!!
5) Watch less TV

Okay, let's start with those. I'm sure there are many more things I need to be doing better, but I don't want to overwhelm myself. What are your New Years Resolutions for 2011?

Project Runway CopyCat



So this year, I was absolutely in love with Mondo's everything on Project Runway. So much so, that I decided to copy his look for the Jackie O challenge. This is my copy of Mondo's design. The striped black shirt is actually a skirt (hence the cardigan). And I apologize for cutting my head off. I was trying to take these pictures myself and I set the camera on the table. But you get the idea.

I'm Turning 30

Tomorrow, I am turning 30. I know it's not really a big deal, but I guess I am a little bit sad to leave my 20s. I have had some of my best years in my 20s and I'm hoping for even better ones in my 30s. Looking back, I thought of 29 things I did in my 29th year. Here it is in no particular order:

1) Joined a gym
2) Survived another year of Girls Camp
3) Made new friends
4) Tasted guacamole (didn't like it)
5) Refinished our dining room table
6) Broke 3 cell phones (technically Sara did, but it was my fault for letting her play w/ it)
7) Went home to Tulsa and loved it!
8) Started a new blog
9) Bought designer jeans (at a fraction of the regular price, but still way too expensive)
10) Lost a baby
11) Played on a volleyball team
12) Watched way, way too much reality TV
13) Read some incredible books
14) Hosted a really fun GNO
15) Sewed a new skirt for myself
16) Had surgery
17) Spent many many hours at the park with my treasure girl, Sara
18) Got my eye brows waxed (yes, my first time ever)
19) Missed my Mom and Dad in Chile
20) Fell off the step in Body Step at the gym
21) Had 2 black toenails, one of which had to be removed
22) Painted the bathroom
23) Let Cameron watch a ridiculous amount of football
24) Shopped at thrift stores - and got some really cool stuff
25) Made lots of yummy cookies and ate many of them
26) Drove to Utah with my cousin
27) Finally found something to clear up my skin
28) Danced to the "Single Ladies" video countless time with Sara
29) Started working on my family history

There are many things I'm looking forward to in the next year. So here's to the last day in my 20s. Cheers!
