2008: Coming to a Close
What does that mean to me?
It means it’s time to make some New Year’s Resolutions.

What is the definition of resolution?
A resolve or determination: to make a firm resolution to do something.

I know people have the best intentions (myself included) to carry out their New Year’s Resolutions in the beginning. But c’mon… who’s actually carried them out to completion? Most of us make these semi-prodigious lists of things we want to develop or improve on. It’s a little daunting if you ask me!

In my opinion, you can’t make a resolution with the expectation of achievement without taking some course of action to get there.

I’ve decided to switch it up this year by making goals each month in order to accomplish my long-term resolutions. They will seem less daunting and much more attainable. Baby steps!

So there you have it! I will be working hard to reach my goals in 2009 and will try to post them here in da blog to keep myself on track!

Time to UPDATE


I know I've sucked at updating my blog lately. Things have been so busy with work, the holidays, and the house. Hopefully I will get better at updating more frequently!

So just to give you a quick run down of things that have happened in the last month...

I was in charge of cooking the turkey this year! Scary, I know! I am currently working on my culinary skills. :) Slowly but surely. I chose to brine the turkey prior to roasting it. I've posted some pics below to show you the beautiful bird! It was very JuIcY!

What a mess!!!

I made my own Pomegranate Molasses:

Prepping the bird:

Wa laaaaa... Here it is:

I also took some pics of our home... it is not fully decorated (obviously) but it is definitely getting there. Decorating is one of my favorite things to do... when I have the time. I love to start "DIY" projects... and will finish them eventually. Anyway, here they are!

Jack, myself and the roggies are doing great! They just went to the vet to get their teeth cleaned last week. Awesome! They are so stinkin' cute! Love them!

Plans for the wedding are coming along smoothly. We are getting closer and closer (and now I have to finish a lot of the DIY projects I started). We are booking our flights this week and are just over 3.5 months away from the cruise. I am so excited! I am so thankful we get to share this moment with our friends and family! WoOt!

I promise to post again soon!
