iHeartfaces:: Innocent Wonder

I'm going to be honest, it took me a minute to think about which photo I would use for this theme... okay, more than a minute. But when I searched through my plethora of photos I came up with this one.
Innocent wonder? Yeah, I think so!

My nephew is the cutest! Link up your Innocent Wonder Photo @ iHeartfaces blog.



Little Taste

Here is a little taste of my weekend so far...

Bet you can't wait for more!!!


A WhoossiieeWhatsie

Woah... I've been slacking this week.

Although I've been slacking on my blogging I most definitely haven't been slacking on LIFE! I've been trying to think of new things for me to try. Things that I shouldn't judge before I try it. Like... a video game. My husband is a video game addict, as some of you may already know, and has been trying to get me to try a few of his "shoot em up" games. I told him I would try Call Of Duty: Black Ops. Can I just say I wish I would have given it a chance a long time ago. It is so FUN! And although I haven't reached the level of some of the people I play against I still enjoy it. We play online against other people so we're not playing with a bunch of robots, so it makes for a more interesting game. If you haven't played it and you have a chance to try it, DO IT!

I've also been getting over this sinus stuff. It's gross! You know that blowing your nose all the time, water eyes, sneezy junk that happens. Thats what I'm getting over. I'm so over blowing my nose too. It's been redonkulous (re-donk-u-lous) how much kleenex I've gone through. We bought 10 boxes of soft kleenex so we don't run out.

I've continued working out about 3 times a week. I haven't added any "real" workouts. My friend Britt and I have been doing Dance Central as a workout, which believe it or not makes me sweat like crazy. It's fun too. I almost forget I'm getting a workout from playing it. I'm using this as a way to form a habit to exercise and when I do that I'll add some more extensive workouts. That's my plan... and a pretty good one too. At least I think so.

Yesterday I was able to take the kids outside, which hasn't happened all week because of how COLD it's been outside and they just soaked it up.

It really showed how much the kids need the fresh air, even if it's just for a few minutes. Can you believe there are some schools who don't even take the kids out ONCE during the winter season. I'd like to do an experiment on behavior during the months when kids get to go outside and the ones where they don't take the kids outside at ALL.
But while we were outside, I thought it to be the best time to snag some winter shots.
OKAY, and eating the snow is SO much fun!

As we go through our busy weekend, my goal is to photograph all the fun we're having. So stay tuned.... fun weekend for me ahead....

Today Brittney and I spent a few hours at a Bridal Show. I haven't been to one since way back when Jeremy and I were planning a MI wedding. Of course as some of you may know we did not get married in MI we got married in Hawaii. :P
I went with 3 brides to this Bridal Show. It was very eventful... :)
It was fun to spend time with friends. Can't wait to go to another one.


Better Me

Every new year is filled with questions like, "What is your new years resolution?" "What are you going to do different this year?" Well friends let me tell you, I hate doing new years resolutions because I always FAIL. I don't do it on purpose, but I think sometimes I give myself very high goals. So this year I decided to do something a little bit different. How?, you may ask, well I plan on giving my self MINI GOALS and at the end of that goal is a reward for myself. For example my first goal is to lose 10 lbs and when I achieve that goal I get to give myself a Tanning membership, because I am so white right now. :)
After I loose a few pounds my goal is then to tone up. I haven't decided on what my reward will be. But it's not just an award, more like an incentive. I'm thinking of things I REALLY want. :) Then I will be more likely to reach that goal. GO ME!
As another incentive I am going to be taking pictures of me through my journey to a healthier me. I haven't fully made the decision of the picture part, but am leaning towards the yes part. I just need to do it during a time when I have some natural light to get some well lit pictures. ;)

Cheers to a better healthier me in 2011. :)

“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”

-William Arthur Ward
