New Years Resolutions

I know New Years Resolutions are supposed to be officially declared on New Years Day but I don't want to wait :) This year I am going to make resolutions that are attainable and stick to them. 1) I will focus on my relationship with God. 2)I will focus on strengthening my marriage, not that its bad but it could use some attention. 3)I will focus on myself - I want to be healthy, I want to "take care" of myself better, and I want to become a better mom and wife by taking care of ME. 4)I will strengthen friendships. 5)I will pay off debt. 6) I will save more money. 7) I will become more active in my community and in the church. 8) I will de-clutter my home. 9) I will organize my life - financially, my kitchen cabinets, my pantry, my craft room, my bedroom, etc. 10) I will give my family the life we deserve :) As I wrote these resolutions I started by writing I WANT instead of I WILL. Using the word want is like standing from afar and trying to reach for something that may never be able to be reached, using the word will is like saying I am already standing in front of it and can't wait to pounce! HAPPY NEW YEAR AND GOD BLESS!!

Every year I have huge plans for Christmas, baking, gift wrapping, light seeing, Santa visits, shopping, parities, and a Birthday cake for Jesus to have on Christmas night. However, I never estimate how exhausting the holidays are. Did I get done what I wanted to? Of course...........not. I did plenty of shopping, gift wrapping, and a few light seeing outings but not as nearly as much as I would've liked. I drank plenty of coffee, energy drinks, and slept a lot, what is the deal?!? I need to organize better or something, wait, me, organize HAHAHA I actually laughed out loud. No, but seriously, it is my dream to be organized. I'd like my house, my finances, and my paperwork all organized. Who would like to come help? I'll bake you something :) Next year, I promise myself to be more organized and schedule activities and maybe we'll actually do them.

Two Posts....

Two posts ago I was saying "shame on me" for not posting and look at me now, not being faithful to posting. I recently have had an inspiration from a mom, blogger, photographer, friend, and sweetheart that I wish I could be more like. She in my eyes is super mom, full of energy and spunk, I simply adore her. She told me "just tell it like it is." So here I am deciding that I am going to try, try harder to tell our story and use this blog as a scrap book for my family and friends. Tonight starts my fourth to last class of my Bachelors degree in Business Management, yes, a BSBM LOL laugh about it now but I am thrilled to be finally done. Everyone is asking, will you get your masters? My answer - it took me 7 years (in May of 2013) to finish my Bachelors, why would I go back for more? But I just might, we'll see, I'd first like to get a job that I love, something that I enjoy. I've always wanted to be my own boss and in a lot of aspects, I am. I am also a slave to "the man" - I have to have insurance so I have to have to work for a corporation in order to get insurance. I wish healthcare wasn't so expensive. One day I will make enough money to not have to work for health insurance, I will be able to pay for all our needs. I am making a "try" to myself to write more because those who know me knows I have a lot to say........

Park Time!!!

Shame On Me

Good morning world! It's going to be a beautiful day! - That is what I used to say every morning when Jewels woke up, since the day she was born until lately I realized that we don't do that any more. It was our daily Thank You to God for creating such a beautiful, wonderful world. I think I will start again, it's one of those things that she'll hopefully do with her kids someday. Speaking of a beautiful world, today is going to be a beautiful day. What to do? Its supposed to be a sunny 88 degrees but those of us that are native Arizonans can tell you it'll probably end up being at least 95 degrees. Nevertheless, we're going to the park! God Bless!!

10 Random Things About ME

10 Random Things:

1. I desperately want short hair but have a short neck and round face and know in my heart it will not look good so I have trained my husband to give me the "do not cut your hair short, you will not like it" pep talk before I leave for hair appointments.

2. I love being a stay at home mom but at first I loathed it. When I was growing up I never wanted to be a stay at home mom and was not after I had my daughter but now that its almost been a year, I LOVE it!!

3. I have a lot of idiosyncrasies when it comes to cleaning my house but am naturally a messy person. Not dirty, just messy.

4. I hate the Arizona heat. I hate it hate it hate it, but don't think I could ever leave it's beauty.

5. I'm still fat because I love going to the gym but never do. Exercising at home just doesn't work.

6. I met Bryan at a bar, cliche but true. We met in April, became a couple in May, he proposed in June, and moved in with me in July. Our daughter was born on the second anniversary of the date he proposed, June 25th. Creepy, right?

7. I love to give things names, my car is Fiona, and everything I name is given a human name - my cats are Claire and Sophie.

8. I want to be a photographer.

9. I wish I could afford a housekeeper, soon I will be able to. I hate cleaning and rather spend my time with my family.

10. I will not watch a television show or read a book if I can not relate to it.

I can not believe I haven't posted since September! Thats crazy, I feel like I am always online for some reason and it does not seem like its been since September that I posted. Wow!

So much has changed and Jewels is growing up so fast! I cannot begin to tell you how many times shes had to stick her nose to the wall today for that little attitude that she must have gotten from her Dad! LOL

I've also started a new business with Arbonne. I am so excited about this and have learned so much about what we put on our selves and in our mouths! Its insane. More about that later.... glad I found my way back. Talk to you soon!
