Oh Hello 2011

I’m excited to say this year brings lots of new things in my life. But first, I’ve been spending a lot of time relaxing… and just plain being a bum. Now it’s time to get back into the swing of things…

To wrap up the year I wanted to share my top 5 favorite outfits of the year! What do you think?

{I really wearing love dresses and skirts!}

This week I’m trying to be diligent with my to do list. But one of the bigger things I need to do to close 2010 is finish the book I’ve been reading for a few MONTHS now! It’s Postwar:  A History of Europe Since 1945 by Tony Judt. I’m going to try to finish it by the end of this week… or maybe next. I’m on page 326 at least 🙂

Hope everyone is having a good start to the first week of 2011!


My Friday

Pancakes for brunch. Reading on the couch. I love the weekend.

Here’s to hoping everyone has a lovely and relaxing weekend!

Goals Update: 10.7.09

Just wanted to do a quick post on my goals.

With my new job and the type of schedule I have, I won’t be able to even try to attempt a few of my goals. Here is an updated list. New goals are bolded.

  • read one classic lit book every month for one year (starting october 2009)
  • cook one meal from a recipe book a week for the next year
  • join a gym and workout 4-5 days a week
  • live within a pre-set budget
  • pay off my credit cards and student loans
  • save money in savings account and don’t touch it.
  • cook one meal from scratch a week
  • be early to things. (I used to always be late, now I am “just on time” and I’d like to be early.)
  • take at least 1 picture everyday. (You guys can see more of me then too! Or more of things around me…)

I took out cooking from a recipe, because I just don’t have the luxury of time to pour through a recipe book, pick a recipe, go to the store, get the required ingredients for a recipe and make it. I’ll stick to what I know.

I also took out going to a gym 4-5 times a week because so far this week I have been sleep an average of 5 hours a night. Taking out an hour of sleep to go work out will probably make me crack out, and it’s only the beginning of my new job!

I’m going to try to stick to this list, keep reading my blog and help me stay accountable!
