Happy New Year!

I hope everyone enjoyed their New Year's Eve/Day celebrations! Me? I was in bed by 10 p.m. Sad, I know. I've just never been a big New Year's party person. I couldn't even tell you the last time I went out on NYE. Oh, well. I was happily snuggled into a warm bed, playing Mario Brothers on my mom's Nintendo DS. Man, I am ADDICTED to that thing. I've never had a hand-held game system. That's my husband's department. He has a DS AND a PSP...not to mention a couple of home gaming systems. But, I'm thinking I might need to get myself a DS! ;0)

And, since I didn't really do much of anything last night, I don't have any photos to share. And, since the majority of my crafting supplies have already been boxed up and sent home, I don't have much craftiness to share. I did, however, start my ATC card-a-day project today. My first card was all about resolutions:



There is a tag neatly stuffed inside with all of my resolutions listed out on it. In case you were wondering what they are, here goes:

1. Exercise more, eat healthier (If anyone has any work out videos that they love...I'm accepting recommendations. With my 2 kids, I don't get to the gym much. I need an at-home workout that I can get into.)
2. Organize and beautify my craft room (Some serious work to be done there...can't wait to get home, and get started!)
3. Save more, spend less
4. Open my Etsy shop (Be on the lookout for this sometime closer to summer.)

That's it. There are a couple more little goals here and there. But, I like to try to keep my resolutions on the achievable side. ;0) Well, I am off to pack SOME MORE! I can't believe how much crap I have accumulated in the 4 months that I have been in Alaska. Only 2 days left, and I'm on my way home!!!

Happy New Year, Holly! =) Also, happy belated...=) Hope your birthday and holidays were awesome! I am super excited for your etsy shop, now! yay! And the only workout I ever stuck to was Winsor pilates (I got a set of dvds a while back..totally worth it...they tighten your tummy like nobody's business) or Tae bo is always fun...happy day!

I also really love pilates - I think even though it's not the easiest thing it still feels good while you're doing it and after. I just have the worst time actually doing it!

I'm with ya on the save more, spend less thing!

good luck and be safe on your trip!
