Morning all! Just a quickie post for now. Wanted to let you all know about Thrifty Decor Chick, Sarah's regular blog feature the first Monday of the month.
where cool bloggy people from all over link up their bestest before and after snaps. I've linked up my fabulicious new counter stools. Be sure to check out all the great links for ideas and inspiration.
Now that business is out of the way, hope everyone had a nice time ringing in the New Year - however you celebrated. We hung out with just a few friends.
It was real nice . . . thanks, Tracy! ;o)
New Year's Resolutions . . . mmm, I almost hate that phrase. For me it's always the same old things . . .
loose weight . . .
get organized . . .
eat more healthy . . .
yadda, yadda, yadda . . .
Well, I DO want to lose some weight, 10 to 15 pounds would nice. Don't need to worry about the exercise thing, cause I've always been good with that. Three to four mile jog on the treadmill 3 or 4 times a week, some ab work, weights, etc. But, I just can't seem to shake these blasted 10 to 15 L.B.'s. I know it's my diet. I will admit I pretty much eat and drink whatever like, so that's okay I guess - never feeling deprived. But, I have to decide what I want more . . . a little more trim figure, or those oh so yummy Ghiradelli brownies! Check out Tiffany's story here.
Wow!!! She lost 60 pounds last year in six months. No fad diets, gimmicks, or pills. She simply changed her mindset on food and exercise. Dang! If she can do that and loose 60, I should be able to handle 15, right?!
Annddd . . . her Hubby lost
50 pounds along with her.
Another thing I'm really going to work on this year is taking/making more time to be creative. Us creative people neeed this . . . y'all know what I mean, right? I always let the day-to-day "chores" monopolize my time. Then I'm wiped out with no mental/creative energy left.
Oh, and I MUST get my house organized. More importantly, I have to start purging. Seriously!
I have THE hardest time getting rid of stuff. I'm afraid I'll end up on that A&E show "Hoarders".
Went to the mall Saturday. I hate the mall. I hate shopping. Unless it's at Michael's, JoAnn's, WalMart or Lowes! Thank God Hubby likes to shop. He has always done all the clothes shopping for our boys. Heck, there were a lot of years when they were younger I could never even remember their shoe size at the time.
How bad is that?!
Anyway, he tricked me. I thought we were just going to Costco, but he announced on the way that he needed to run in to the mall.
Well, I survived and all wasn't lost. I browsed through the Hallmark store and snagged up some cute after C'mas clearance card kits and a notepad holder. The "tray" is super-sturdy cardboard that I'm planning on refilling with less seasonal paper.
I had to hit the new two-story Barnes and Noble and finally bought
(I know . . . I'm the last blogger on the planet to get it!)
Also at Barnes and Noble I found this adorable box of Valentine's inspired from vintage ephemera images. Now I wish I'd bought another box.
Anything paper . . . I just can't resist.
Started working on items for my Etsy Shop, and I'll slowly be de-Christmasing the house this week, only to deck the halls with all things
Is it me, or has Valentine's Day really become more of a big thing the past couple years?
Oh, like the little picture mosaic way up there at the top? I used Picnick to create it.
Thanks for the heads-up on that site, Darlene!
It was a lot of fun. Can't wait to play around more over there.
Thanks for visiting!
