2012 Resolutions

I decided to go back and see what my ‘new year resolutions’ were this year! I don’t think I have looked at the list since I made it back in January.

1. Get in Shape (duh)

I kinda got in shape this summer….then fall hit…and now I am way out of shape!

2. Save Money….like crazy.

I have saved money…but not tooo crazy!

3. Be more fashionable (aka…wear less sweat pants out in public)

I am not saying I am fashionable….but I made more of an effort this year! Baby steps people.

4. Buy fancy heals that I will probably only wear once a year.

5. Run a half-marathon

I ran two of them!!

6. Create a Crafty/Mancave

We sold our chairs upstairs and I turned it into a photography craft room…so I halfway did this!

7. Check off some things on my “24 before 25” list!

I ran a half-marathon, do a sprint tri, photograph a wedding, go on a road trip, get in shape (which I kinda did this summer…then stopped), visit my sister in virginia!

Now I have to figure out what I want to tackle in 2013! What is on your list?


Lately: December Edition


I can’t believe it is already December 13th! Christmas is just around the corner and I still have some shopping to do!

Here is what I have been up to lately…


I put our tree up right after Thanksgiving! It is a tiny little thing, but I love it!


We went to the Christmas Train with the Weaver’s and Gossen’s!! Normally we have to be bundled up but it was only 60 degrees!


I took a day off last week and went to Tulsa to spend the day with my mom! We went to the Philbrook, Lunch at PF Changs, went to Anthropology (if I ever become rich…I will shop there more often), the mall, and starbucks!


On Saturday I hosted our annual Scarf Exchange! I love time with these girls! We managed to fit 8 people around my 4 person table! 🙂


AND My friend Lindsey is ENGAGED!!!!! I am so excited for her!!! 🙂

What have you been doing this holiday season?
