Welcome to 2008!!

Happy New Year Everyone!! Hot-hubby and I had a very quiet New Years Eve. We spent the evening alone, ordered a pizza, watched a movie and then the fire works on the TV. Well, actually we can see the high, large fireworks from our house. It was probably the last time we will see them from our house though. Once they build the houses behind us I think we will lose our view. Here are a couple pictures from the evening.

I am not usually one to set New Year resolutions, but this year I decided to write down my goals for the year.

Take better care of myself
Lose 35 lbs. Two years ago I lost 50lbs, but I have since gained 10 back. It is time for me to get serious and lose the final pounds.

Exercise more! I used to go to the gym, but the last few months have been lacking any kind of exercise. I need to get my butt moving!!

Eat healthier. I have started to eat fast food and potato chips again!! They are my vice. I could never eat another chocolate again and be fine with it. Take away my salty snacks and I would be devastated. I am not going to cut these treats out for good, but they are going to become rare treats.

Take more pride in my appearance. I rarely wear make-up or dress “nice”, yet I feel so much better about myself when I do. It is amazing how good a little cover-up and blush can make you feel.

Be Creative
I need to take more time and scrapbook. It is a hobby that makes me so happy, yet I rarely make time to do it. It is time to start!!

Finish all of the projects I started this past year. I am tired of seeing half finished albums and pages of notes of things I want to do.

Try some new things. I love the altered items and mini-books that I see other people making. I have the supplies, it is time I use them.

Convince myself that it doesn’t have to be perfect!! I will not let myself stress about every page.

Get Organized
I am very disorganized right now and feel out of control. I like things neat and orderly, but have let things get out of control.

Take the extra time and put everything away in its home. I am infamous for having piles of crap around just waiting to be carried up a flight of stairs and put away.

Purge the craft room. I have way to much stuff that I am never going to use. It is time for me to sort it all out and donate the stuff I no longer need. I am lucky enough to have a room for my hobby, it is time I used it to it’s full potential!

Wow, I feel better just getting all of this in writing! I will keep you updated on my progress. I have a feeling that 2008 is going to be a great year!!

I am wishing everyone a fabulous 2008!!
