My New Year's Resolutions
Let's see if I can stick to them! Hey, I do have a whole year, right? ;)

1. Stop biting my nails. I say this every year, but it's getting worse and worse. This time I mean it.

2. Start waking up 1 hour before I normally do. Every morning I am so rushed to get out the door. I need to take some time for myself and sit down with a cup of coffee, read the paper, and take my time getting ready. My mornings would be so much less hectic.

3. Be more punctual. I have to admit that I am often times late for things. Being tardy is not a good trait, and I don't want to have it.

4. Find a way to get more energy. It seems that I am always tired these days, and I need a way to boost my energy level. I should probably start exercising....

5. Exercise! I really want those special shoes that tone your body while you walk. That seems like an easy way to tone up without having to go to the gym!

6. Learn to sew.

7. Start getting more into my blog, and learning how to get out there in the Blog World.

8. Work on one crafty project a month. I would love to make this one project a week, however I do have two jobs, and I just don't see myself keeping up with that one.

9. Take more pictures.

10. Learn to cook. I know the basiscs, but now that Jamie and I are on our own, I'd like to learn how to make wonderful meals for the two of us to enjoy on our nights together.

Also, then I could have an excuse to wear one of these!

11. Start that darn scrapbook. It is 3 years in the making...yikes.

Things I am looking forward to in 2010

1. Enjoying our new house.

2. Decorating our new house! If my hubby and I can agree on anything!

3. Going to England! Finally I get to meet my husband's family and friends. Plus I have NEVER been out of the country, and it's about time I get out there and start seeing the world.

4. Matt & Laura's wedding. Ah, our dear friends from England. They are getting married in the summer at a castle in Scotland, and Jamie is the best man. It's one of the reasons we are going to England this summer.

5. Getting a puppy! We have decided to get a dog. A French Bulldog actually. We can't wait for the new edition to our tiny family!

6. Summer BBQ's at our new house. We have a sweet backyard, and plan on having many pool parties and BBQ's this summer.
I am really looking forward to this year. I hope you are all too!

Gettin' Started

So Jamie and I have decided that our official move-in date will be Saturday, December 19th. Even though we technically can move in a week earlier, Jamie has finals all that week, so we thought we'd wait until that stress was over to begin a whole new level of stress! LOL, nah, it's going to be so much fun, I can't wait! We are going to have a lot of people helping us move, so Jamie thought it would be fun to get a keg or two for the boys, get some BBQ going, and make it a moving party! That should get everyone motivated!

I was veggin' on the couch last night being super lazy, and I began to realize, "Hey, we are moving in 3 weeks!" so I got up and started packing up some stuff! I LOVE PACKING! Here are our first boxes.

And look how cute our packing tape is!

Oh dear, you know someone is obsessed when they start taking pictures of BOXES. I don't care, I'm so happy! YAY!

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

Well, the day has finally come...Jamie and I are officially HOMEOWNERS! I can't beleive it! I am sooooo incredibly happy, I just can't stand the excitement! It has been a very long and drawn out process; mountains of paperwork and months of waiting. Now it looks like all of our patience and hard work have finally paid off!

I can't wait to move in! We don't have an official move-in date as of yet, but it will be around the 15th of December. So Jamie and I will be able to have our first Christmas in our new house! YAY! And with Thanksgiving being tomorrow, we definitely have a lot to be thankful for!

Like I said before, I am going to be posting a lot more frequently now that we finally have the ball rolling on our move. This is a huge part of our lives, and I want to document every little thing! (No matter how annoyed Jamie gets with my constant picture taking! He hates taking pictures) So I hope everyone has an amazing long weekend. I know I will!

Bad Romance

I am absolutely in LOVE with Lady Gaga! She is so talented and edgy, I just adore her. Check out her new video if you haven't seen it yet. It's really dark and it kind of makes you feel weird, but that is what I love about it. And her outfits! Truly amazing.

Shake It!

I am so in love with the new "Shake It" iPhone application. It's like having a poloroid camera in your phone! You just take a picture, and it comes up looking like a fresh poloroid. Then you shake it to make the image appear! How cute is that?!?! Here are some shots I took from the view of our friends' cabin in Big Bear this weekend using Shake It.

Alice In Wonderland Remix

How cool is this?!? I love Alice in Wonderland, and this remix is so neat, I keep watching it over and over again!

We Are Buying a House!!!

Something big is happening right husband and I are buying our first house! Yay! I cannot believe it, I never thought I would be a home owner at the age of 26, but it looks like I will be! I have to say though, this wouldn't be possible right now if it wasn't for this "first time home buyer stimulus" that is going on this year. So THANK YOU OBAMA! :D We should be signing papers sometime this week, and then escrow should close shortly after that. I CAN'T WAIT! Two and a half years of being married and living with roommates (can you imagine???) and we can finally properly start our lives together.

Jamie and I are going to be doing a lot to this house, so I will be posting a lot of pictures, design ideas, and before-and-after shots. I have a lot of ideas running through my head, and I will be documenting them all, so stay tuned!

xoxo, H
