I want to get into a better workout routine. Not only do I feel better when I am working out every morning, I also have tons more energy to get me through my day! Plus my brother-in-law is getting married in May in the Cayman Islands and that means wearing a bathing suit!!
I want to spend more time with my hubby doing new things together. When we first started dating we would go hiking on the weekends or drive around and explore. Now we just watch tv or do things separately. We are going to take a few trips this year to places we've never been.
I want to volunteer somewhere, either at a hospital or an animal shelter.
I am going to start taking my photography classes so that I can get started on this new career path! I am very excited about this decision and about what the future will bring!
I am going to blog more and hopefully gain some readers. I enjoy so many other blogs out there and I hope one day that people will enjoy mine. If not, at least I have a record of things that I have done or felt!
I want to take horse back riding lessons. I did it for a few years when I was a kid and I keep talking about doing it again. I think it will be a good way to be outside and get in a decent workout!
So these are not really resolutions, but rather new things to experience to hopefully make me a better person!

Today, we will celebrate Christmas with my father-in-law's side of the family and I am excited! Cameron's aunt Melissa makes the best macaroni and cheese in the world! Not to mention her chocolate pie....yummy! Plus we really only see everyone once a year, twice if we're lucky!
Christmas eve will be spent with my in-laws. Every year my mother-in-law makes chicken winder stew for Christmas Eve and it is very good. Then we will spend Christmas day with them as well; a home cooked breakfast and dinner followed by a trip to the movies, which is a new thing we are trying this year!
Sometime after the new year we will celebrate again with my sisters! If you know me and my family you know that my dad passed away 6 years agao and my mom lives in Tallahassee and doesn't get up here that often so it's just us. My sister's will be spending Christmas in Indiana with my dad's side of the family. I'm jealous but I had no time off work.
Hopefully I will have pictures from some of these celebrations!

I get migraines every month. Sometimes just once and sometimes 3 or 4 times and they usually last 24 hours. Yesterday afternoon, one came out of nowhere and it was BAD! So I called into work for today. I still have my migraine but the pain is subsiding as the day goes on. Yay!
So, I decided to spend my day off getting things done around the house. Enter the laundry!
This is 3 loads of clean laundry just waiting to be folded and hung up...AHhhhhh!!!

After much debate we decided to do it... To petition all city and county parks and rec. to install at least 1 handicap playground in the community. We are going to begin to do this nation wide eventually. I am spreading the word that it is unfair for my child, your child, or any handicap child to not have the option to play at the park.
My daughter is 5 years old and sadly has only played at the park a handful of times. Due to her muscle deterioration she is not able to climb on the equipment at a standard playground. So sadly we tell her "NO" because the risk of injury is way to great. She lacks the muscles in her neck and joints and if she were to fall in jsut the wrong way she could be more critical than she is now.
I have e-blasted this all over the web. I have added it to facebook, cafemom, and even her website. All it takes is one person to make a difference. Please help Caileigh be that person.

We don't have alot of pictures of the two of us. We have random holiday ones and our wedding pictures but that's about it so I was very excited to have this chance!! Cameron not so much!!

I adore Kate Beckisales look...her hair color and her makeup. It's obviously a darker brown...probably closer to my natural color!
However, for about a year now I have wanted to go red. I don't know why...I guess because I might as well do it now in my 20's when I can get away with trying new things. Plus I tend to have red undertones in my hair anyways.
I am so torn...brunette would be easy upkeep while I hear that red tends to fade easily. Please grace me with your opinions!!
PS: The above picture is kinda silly...we were playing in leaves like little kids!!

I am starting school, again, at the end of March to be a photographer! I love taking pictures of children and I think that I do a good job at it so I am very excited about this!
This weekend I am actually going to take pictures of my sisters and their girls for Christmas cards. This will be the test to determine if it is truly what I want to do. They are being very trusting by putting this in my hands! I am sure that I will have plenty of pictures to post afterwards!

The family I work for is getting ready to move so things have been pretty hectic at their house. I am a nanny for 2 wonderful boys who keep me on my feet.
This weekend is the Muscular Dystrophy Association walk at the zoo...getting pretty excited. My sister made half the shirts and I am going to make the other half this week...I promise!
I am very boring this week but this weekend I plan on updating with some ideas of what I want to do to the house!

This is from 2 years ago. My mom came up from Florida and we all went out to dinner.
This is a picture from July of Shauna, Rachel, and me. We don't have that many pictures of just the 3 of us.
