Random thoughts of the day

Happy Tuesday, ya'll!  How's it going???

Today is basically my Monday, since I spent all of yesterday laying around in my pj's. I am definitely thankful for another short week, especially since I feel like we are all readjusting to life after the holidays. :)

I have nothing in particular to talk about, so here are 5 random thoughts for the day....

Over the Top
Merino Cool
1. These cute little beauties are the next polishes I want. According to my SIL Amanda, blacks and dark polishes are out. *SIGH* But those are my favorite!!! BUG! I think I'll still be sneaking by dark polishes... :) 

Although I am fairly loyal to the OPIs (mostly because of the cute names), I do have to branch out occasionally!

2. I am very very excited because the girls' Bible study I was a part of when I first moved down to LR is starting back up! I have seriously missed my friend, Erin, who organizes this group and even more excited to have an every-other-week girls night! Not sure exactly when we are starting... we are just now emailing but hopefully will get this party started in the next few weeks. Just in time for Natalie to join us! :)

3. My Christmas decorations are still up.... and I fully realize how sad this is!! Maybe this weekend? No, definitely this weekend...... I hope. 

4. I have a niece and a nephew that are both 4!!!! I CANNOT believe this! I have just decided that tomorrow will be a post about them... :)

5. I seriously LOVE reading blogs! I get so excited when I get home to read about all of my friends... (and stalk a few people. ha!) Even when I personally take a blogging hiatus, I still regularly read my friends' blogs... I love it!

That's all for tonight.... Have a great night everyone!

Oh, Happy Day!

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful, restful Sunday!

I'm very excited today, for more reasons than 1!

#1 - Today is the first day of snow!!! Since moving from NWA, I have missed the little bit of snow we seemed to get every year. But today is no disappointment! It's only been snowing for about 2 hours and already it's getting really slick outside! 1 inch of snow right now..... so let's hope it keeps it up --- I want a snow day tomorrow!  :)

#2 - Tyler and I found out that our very best friends are MOVING TO LITTLE ROCK!!!!! I cannot tell you how long we have been talking about this and it has finally come true! Josh and Natalie are both teachers, and Natalie has gotten a job at Camp Robinson, the Army base in North Little Rock. She starts NEXT MONDAY so as of this weekend, they will be residence of central Arkansas!

Josh is Tyler's best friend ever, and his best man at our wedding. I have loved becoming friends with Natalie and am BEYOND excited to be able to see them all the time!!

The only downside? I think we will have to convert our 2nd bedroom to a Man Cave / Gaming room...    :)

New Year's Resolution

Hi everybody! I hope you all had a WONDERFUL New Year!!

I have LOVED reading everyone's goals for 2011 and what you all want to accomplish. Some goals are serious, some silly. But all are ways that we want to improve our lives - so what could be bad about that?

This year, I have just one resolution... Take and share more pictures! This came about because I have realized that the past year, I don't have hardly any pics with the kiddos!

Although we had even taken a week-long vaca with my fam this summer, Tyler and I just don't have many pics with the kids. And the pictures I did take were with my dad's camera! You see, my dad has a really nice camera and I like to take pictures. Perfect Combo, right?!? Not that I'm a very good photographer, but it has just become expected that anytime the fam get together I will take his camera and snap away. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy taking pics! (when other people have the camera, I find myself wishing I could get my hands on it. Ha!)

I think I just have to make it a priority to get pictures of my own, even if I have to shove the camera in someone else's hands and say "TAKE MY PICTURE NOW!" :)

I just don't want to look back and not have pictures with/of the kids! This is such a precious time of their lives!!!!

Well, in honor of my New Year's Resolution (and inspiration from my SIL, Amanda), I am going to catch up on some pics and videos from my iPhone!

B riding a carousal at Chuck-E-Cheese for Harry's family bday party.

MK having fun climbing on some games.

Sweet GK practicing her gymnastics skills at Harry's birthday. Such a sweet smile!!! I can't believe I didn't get any pics of Harry on my phone! (they are all still in my dad's camera--- Frustrating!

B and I on our way to see Tangled on Christmas Day.

And this is B talking about how excited she is for the movie... This is hilarious!!

Well this is all I have right now, but believe-you-me, I will have some more very soon!

Have a great week everyone!!!
