Happy New Year !!!!

  I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe New Year's Eve.  I was at home sick and in bed at 6:00 p.m.
I was awakened at 11:30 with texts telling me Happy New Year, and was a little confused since it wasn't midnight yet.  Oh well, I guess people were getting an early start!  I didn't reply to anyone since I could barely hold my head up, but you all know I love ya :)

  Has anyone made any New Year resolutions yet?  I have.  Yesterday my daughter and I were at the mall and trying on clothes and we both left the dressing rooms making a pact with each other that we are going to exercise at least 30 minutes a day, and that we are going to give up sugar.  This will take some getting used to since I am drinking coffee with fat-free creamer right now, not sugar-free.  Heaven's to Betsy I've already messed up!!!  We will start the sugar free when I finish this bottle of creamer. 

   I am pretty sure that I can go without sugar, it has been over a year now since I have had any soda at all.  And I was the girl that drank at least 6 cans of Diet Coke a day.  It was my lifeline.  Oh those days!!!!  Serioulsy there have only been a couple fo times when I thought about caving in and drinking one, but I don't let myself because I know if I have just one Diet Coke I will fall off the wagon!!!   So I stick to water, tea and coffee.  I do know where to draw the line though,  yesterday Breanna told me that this year I should give up coffee, and I told her that if I gave up coffee I wouldn't have a family anymore, because they would disown me.  I know my limits and I need my coffee, everyone else needs me to have my coffee too :)

    Some of my other resolutions are :

To make more hairbows....  Yes for some reason I just can't shake the hope that these babies are going to make me rich.  It hasn't happened yet, heck I haven't even broke even from all the money I have spent on supplies, but like Dorie in Finding Nemo, I am going to "just keep swimming, just keep swimming"  until I hit the big time :)

This will sound silly to most people, but I am putting it out here anyway :  One of my resolutions is to clean my house LESS !  Thats right I said LESS  not more.  See I am slightly addicted to cleaning.. I love it, it is so theraputic for me, but my family doesn't love the fact that I can't just sit down and relax. I have to be cleaning something.  I see all of these blogs that go over lists and ideas on how to keep your house clean, and I wish I had started something like that.  I could clean my house with my eyes closed!! But even in cleaning there has to be a balance, and I just don't have that.  Sometimes when I think to the future and when I am on my deathbed what if the only thing people remember about me is that I kept a perfectly clean house..  That's not fun to think of, but that's where it's heading.

Since I am going to be cleaning less I will have more time to do other things like :  Learn how to coupon and actually do it. This is something my daughter Bree and I are going to do together.  I am also going to read more books, I used to love to read and for the past couple of years I have not read at all.  Sad, I know.I plan on blogging more, my daughter says I need to post more pics of me since it is my blog, but the thought of that really freaks me out, so we'll see how that goes.

That is just a few of the chages (resolutions) that I am making.  Hopefully I will be able to keep you posted on how they all go.

                                           Addi is taking a magazine break after a hard morning of
                                           working at the flower shop.

                                          This is my kind of pet....  There is no shedding, no licking,
                                          no potty breaks, no dirty paws.... I could go on and on....

                                         But this is the fur ball we have....  And he does everything my
                                         horse head doesn't...  But I love him in spite of all of that .

                                         We took my first born, my baby boy to get his drivers permit last
                                         week.  I am having to learn how to be cool in the car, and how not to
                                         look over to my left and break down in tears at the fact that he is driving.
                                         Also I am having to really work on not being a back seat driver.  I am
                                         afraid that is going to take some time.


                                          If anyone is wondering why I haven't posted anyting lately
                                          it is because I have been working on these 2 wreaths. Yes
                                          only 2 wreaths. These babies took a LONG time to make.

Toddlers and Tiaras

 I can't stand that show.  Well actually I have never watched the show, but I can't stand the commercials for the show.  That's how I know I wouldn't be able to stand the show. 

But look at my little toddler in her tiara....
