We purchased a treadmill for ourselves as an early Christmas present. It's in our house, and I have failed miserable at using it. I got Zumba for the Wii, and I've done it once! Seriously?!?! I'm pathetic!
So..tomorrow is THE day...a fresh start. I WILL WORK OUT!
Found this on Pinterest, and I couldn't agree more! :)
Who wants to keep me motivated? Anyone want to volunteer to be my workout partner??

The odds are definetely stacked against me. But something inside me just keeps telling me to stick with this. I love writing down my thoughts. Some days, its the only way I keep sane. Some days, I just want to let it all out. Some days, I can get so lost in my own thoughts that nothing ever comes out. Am I alone here? Blogging is my me time..and this year, I am committed to finding the time for ME.
Don't get me wrong. I am very in love with my husband of nearly 4 years. I am head over heels in love with my 21 month old son. I just know that in order to be the best mother and wife, I need to first take care of me. I hope to keep up with this blog and document my thoughts, dreams, and journey along the road of life. If I get followers, great! If not, that's ok too! I just want to have a way to keep up with the thoughts going on inside this mind.
Anyone else trying to find more time for yourself this year? Or maybe you would just rather watch your tv shows than keep up with a blog?

Being a teacher really DOES have some nice perks!
I can't help but get absolutely giddy when I receive that phone call telling me that I get to sleep in and don't have to get out and about in that yucky white stuff! But what makes matters even sweeter are this little guy...I decided to bundle him up in 2 onesies, 2 pairs of socks, sweatpants, bunting outfit, and hat. He wasn't quite sure what to think being all bundled up. Or what in the world mommy was doing with a laundry basket and blanket? Desperate times call for desperate measures! SOO CAUUTTE! I was afraid he might panic so we started off gradually. He started looking curious, so I just plopped him in!
And he LOVED it! He wasn't out there long but long enough for the neighbors to see and probably start wondering what in the world that crazy lady was doing putting a baby in the snow, but it was enough to make for some great memories!
