My New Year's Resolutions for 2011

1. Learn to laugh at myself when people are just teasing. (I am extremely sensitive and I need to learn to let go and just laugh along with others when we are just having fun)

2. Look for ways to reach out to others and be more uplifting to people around me.

3. Actually SPEND money once in a while for a fun night with friends. (I love to save money, and that is not a bad thing, but I should also enjoy living in the moment too!)

I can't believe 2011 is almost here! I am sure it will be a great year! GOD IS GOOD!

game night!

Game nights with friends are always so much fun! My cheeks hurt from laughing so hard!

I took the quiz for discovering my LOVE LANGUAGE, and mine is definitely by far, hands down...QUALITY TIME! I love just spending time with family and friends. We can just have a simple night of playing games or just catching up on life and I am TOTALLY SATISFIED!


What's YOUR love language?

Looking back on 2010...

I can't believe this year is almost OVER! Wow! Time sure does fly by!

anyways, I wanted to take time and reflect over 2010.

1. Decided on a whim to participate in my very first 5k, and did it in 27 minutes!

2. Developed really close bonds with the people in my small group.

3. Went on a couple dates with 2 guys, didn't turn into anything special, but it was fun to get all excited and dressed up to go out with a guy.

4. Attended my 2nd wedding ever, but first wedding of a FRIEND, instead of family! What a great time of celebration! Love you Meagan and Scotty! [now they are expecting a little baby boy, Weston! HOW FUN!]

5. Went on my first PARENT-FREE trip to Florida with my girl friends!!! We had a blast!

6. Competed in the Urban Quest race and came in 2nd place by 2 itsy bitsy teeny weeny minutes! Regardless, it was still lots of fun!

7. Started serving every single week in Grace Acres at church. Really started to get close with the other volunteers and started occasionally working in…

time for another new layout!

It was time for a new layout! CHANGE IS GOOD!


Today was my mom's birthday. We went to see a movie and went out to lunch.

For dinner, I created an incredibly delicious and HEALTHY "breakfast for dinner"!!!

I scrambled some egg whites, then added chicken & ham pieces, and melted some swiss cheese on top! It was VERY tasty!!!

tomorrow is Christmas Eve, and I asked if my family could go to the service at Grace this year, and they agreed! YAY! Can't wait to see what Grace has in store for the Christmas Eve service!

Hope everyone has a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Christmas in Florida!

we had a SUPER QUICK trip to Florida.
Drove most of the way on Friday, stayed in a hotel, and drove to my mom's side of the family on Saturday.
That night, we went to my dad's side of the family and woke up and went to church.
After, we had a get together at my uncle's house for burgers and then went to my other aunt's house for a Christmas party.
It was a lot of fun!

We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

Greetings from little Blake and me! :)

how sweet.

Myrtle made this for me.


Ice Skating fun with friends!

Yesterday was our second annual CHRISTMAS MEMORY with my friends. We went ice skating and out to dinner. Then, we actually watched a Dave Barnes Comedy Show DVD at a girl's apartment. (last year we went to the actual show at a theater) It was tons of fun and I accomplised my goal - to never fall down while ice skating! wahoo! :)
