My favorite and most unexpected present this year was a Wii game console and Wii Fit!! I'm loving it, even thought it made my Mii character chubby! lol
One of the many "joys" of family get togethers is anticipating the comments we will get from my crazy Greek Aunts. They have no filter and love to point out when you've put on a few pounds. Last Easter I got asked if I was pregnant. NO, I've just gained weight, thanks! This year my gorgeous cousin was told that she looks 80! What does that even mean? Brandon often gets told that "married life is agreeing with him" while they pat his stomach. Good times! A big "thank you" goes out to my cousins (and wine) for making these holidays bearable!
I have many things to be thankful for from 2009. It was last January that my husband and I purchased our first home. It was also this past May that we adopted Izzie! I am thankful for a steady job amongst economic turmoil and for my ever growing etsy shop! 2009 brought about many changes in my life and I foresee 2010 to do the same! After all, it should be this upcoming Fall semester that I *finally* get into nursing school!
Now, onto my resolutions. I have quite a few this year, but many of them go hand in hand.
1) I want to look and feel confident in my appearance. This is a multifaceted resolution:
a) I want to lose 25-30lbs.
b) I need to wake up early enough to have a morning routine. No more rolling out of bed with 10 minutes to spare, throwing my hair in a messy bun and leaving the house looking like a mess.
c) workout & actually *use* my gym membership. This will be broken down in smaller, more manageable weekly goals. It will also include using my new Wii Fit! =P
d) not letting outside opinions get to me
e) eat better, plan out meals, and "pick" at snacks and junk food less
2) Make God, reading my bible, and going to church a priority
a) Love God, love people.
b) really get involved, volunteer.
I've been debating whether or not to take (dance) classes this Spring semester. Should I take a semester off before starting nursing school? Or, should I take dance for fun, even though it ties up my nights? Any thoughts? Which would you chose?
