New Year, New Me

I am not a huge believer in New Year's resolutions because I never follow through with any of them! This year I plan on trying a little harder to try different things!

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!

no pictures this year!

So normally every Christmas Cameron and I will take a picture in front of his parent's Christmas tree. Last year we were actually in Vail, Colorado over Christmas so we did not take one. I was so excited this year to take one but Cameron got sick and was running a fever Christmas Eve and Christmas day so I could not toture him with this.

So no pictures from Christmas so far, but on New Years Day we are getting together with my sisters and nieces to celebrate and I will definately be taking pictures then!! I am so excited to see them and to eat some more yummy food!

Hope everyone else had a wonderful Christmas with their families!

This bedroom is beautiful! Not so fond of the mirrors but I love the curtains. And boy oh boy do I love the fullness of the bed! I would never want to get out of it!

Christmas times 3!

Since I started dating Cameron, I have been celebrating Christmas 3 times a year...lucky me!

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!

Sick Day

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!!!

Now everything is hung up...looks better!
But there is still a load in the dryer and one in the never ends!!
So my day off turned into a day to work around the house!! Blah!

Christmas at our house!

I Love Christmas time! I love the music and the food and the decorations! So here are some pictures of our decorations. It's not much but I love walking in at night and seeing it all!

Our tree!

This is the ornament my mom got us for our first Christmas. I had to zoom in to get it right.
The back says "I found the one my heart loves"

This is one side of our fireplace. I love the garland!
The small red and green stockings are for our dogs, Belle and Puppy. I have not been able to find stockings that I love yet so we just keep buying from Target. Maybe next year!
