It's Been Way Too LONG!

Wow! I don't even know where to tell you that I've been, lol. I also can't believe that January is almost over and it feels like Christmas was months ago. It feels like right when New Years Day hit my life started to speed up. The problem is that I'm having a hard time keeping up or maybe I should say catching up. Let me start by doing a little catching up on the last month or so:



We had a great Christmas morning just at home with the girls. I forgot how fun it was to have a baby at Christmas time. Kate didn't know what to think, but she loved it. It really was the perfect amount of everything. The girls didn't feel like they were missing out at all and we didn't overly spoil them so it was great. I got my camera early so I wasn't expecting anything, but Corey surprised me with an i-touch! I really had never even thought about having one so it was a huge surprise and I really am LOVING it! The other day I was thinking about how I still needed to get Grace a metronome for piano. Then the thought came to me that there might be a metronome application for the i-touch that I could download. Five minutes later Grace was practicing the piano with her headphones on listening to the ticking of her new metronome and it was FREE! Needless to say I think it's pretty cool.

I turn 30 this year (May 29th) and so it's really got me thinking even more about how I want to be different in my 30s that my 20s. I've really started working at losing weight and have lost 10 pounds since the new year and I really want to look and feel different by the end of May. I don't know why food has to be such a temptation for me. It's always screaming out to me "EAT ME!" Well now the veggies, just the ooey gooey brownies and such :) I also found this site and decided that I'm going to run a 5k in May. I've never been a runner at all and so this will be fun. I just need the snow to stop coming so that I can keep working at it.

Something else that's been on my mind a lot, but hadn't done anything until now has been service. I know how important it is and want my kids to grow up doing service for others and enjoying it. I found this blog a few months back and that really got me thinking. At first I thought about joining, but then my friend Milana and I decided to start our own group. Last Friday was our first meeting and it was a lot of fun. Everyone had some great ideas. This month we're trying to collect coats and winter clothes for the Spanish families in our area that are in need of them. When we have our next meeting in February we're going to tie fleece blankets to also give to them. I'm excited to get to know these ladies better as we serve together and for our group to grow. New people are always welcome so if you're in the area I'd be happy to let you know where and when. If you're not you should start a group of your own!

That's what's going on with me right now :) I think that my brain is probably busier than my body, lol, but I always feel like I'm behind at the end of the day. Maybe someday I'll be totally organized and in control. I'm sure my family would appreciate it. Have a great day and I promise I won't disappear again.

xoxo until next time.

Glad you're back! That running site looks awesome. I've never been a runner, but maybe I should give it a try. It always sounds fun when people say they are going to run a race.

Awesome pictures too. It looks like you're loving your camera.

Too cool! I love your new phone. I want one too! Sounds like you have a lot of plans, that is awesome. I feel like I'm the only one with no plans this year! lol. I guess I better start on something! By the way, I put a link to your store on my blog so people can check your stuff out and maybe by one of your super cute things!
