A New Year…Some New Resolutions!!

So, it has been ages since I last blogged…and I haven’t really been that consistent with blogging anyway since before our little guy was born…and he was born almost a year and a half ago!!

Therefore, I have now joined Bloggy Moms in the Blog Dare!! Every day for a year…eesh!! They do give you a prompt for each day if you get stuck…but the main goal is to just blog!! Here’s to that happening!!

I’m also starting my own Green Smoothie Challenge. Every day for the month of January I plan on having a green smoothie for breakfast and a healthy, hearty soup for lunch. Dinners will be as usual. I also plan on getting in at least 30 minutes of movement in every day…whether that’s walking, hooping, dance dance revolution, or an exercise video. I’ll post some more about that in another post.

So to catch everyone up to date on what has been going on….

Brack is now warehouse manager at TD as of a few months ago. This means a little more security, but lots of hours!! It definitely keeps him busy during the week and ready for the weekend!!

I’m busy getting the house in shape…trying to get rid of some of the clutter that seems to accumulate when you have more space to fill!! It seems the more space you have, the more space gets filled up!! I’m also trying to get my own little home business on the web going. I have an Artfire shop that will hopefully get set up here in the next week or so…selling accessories and eventually clothing for hoop dance, belly dance, swing dance, and ren faires.

Of course, I also am kept hopping keeping up with the bundle of energy that is our little toddler!! He never seems to stop moving!! I’ve emptied the bottom kitchen cabinets of all but pots and pans, mixing bowls, and plastic storage containers…because inevitably in the split seconds that I’m not looking he ends up dragging half the contents of the cabinets out into the middle of the kitchen!!

He is a little sweetheart though and has learned to charm the fire out of total strangers and win the hearts of everyone who knows him!! He is very much into music and will start dancing to anything with a beat!! Cracks us up every time!! He got a little marching drum and a xylophone for Christmas and I’m sure he will be making plenty of music in the playroom now!!

Bug dances through 2010!!

We have also added to the family a new kitten. Ami is none too pleased with this new development…but we wanted a cat that would grow up together with Bug, be a LOT more friendly with everyone, and be able to travel well…NONE of which Ami is!! So Kiki joined the family just before Thanksgiving and has already made the journey to my parents for Thanksgiving (making “friends” with Mom’s kitten) and to my MIL’s for Christmas (thrilling all the little nieces and nephews). She has adapted very well to traveling in the car…and will even nap on our shoulders!!

So, there ya go!! First blog entry of 2011!! Here’s to hoping that I’ll be able to keep up with my blogging and health challenges!!

Green smoothies?? How totally cool! I love that idea, I might have to toss some into my new years resolution breakfast meals!

A rennie?? I love it.. me too! I'll be visiting your store for costume's etc for my kids, I need to get them some, they play dress up all the time. I'm part of a LARP and I know people who are always looking for costuming!

Can't wait to see the company! I'm doing a make up/photo shoot for them in March, so I'll have a place to send people who need it!

Happy 1st day of blogging!!
