2011 Goals and Aspirations


2010 was insane. I went through so many life's changes, but it was so exciting to actually go through them. With 2011 literally right around the corner, I want to take some time to write out a list of my Goals and Aspirations - not resolutions.

1. Read more. My goal is to read a minimum of 12 books this year. That's 1 book a month, which is more than manageable. My January book is one that has been on my nightstand for awhile and that's Emily Giffin's "Heart of the Matter"

2. Take more pictures. My hard drive on my desktop fried, therefore I had no place to store, edit or house my pictures this year... it died around April. So any pictures I had before that was taken into computer heaven - so basically I don't have much to show for 2010 which is devastating since it was the year I would have liked to most document. But alas, my amazing husband got me a new hard drive and with the help of his friend.... my baby is fixed. I plan on taking much more pictures since I now have a place to put them. To start it off right I have a newborn session today with Mike's cousins new baby girl.

3. Be conscience of your body, mind and soul. This year especially made me realize even more so than ever how precious our bodies really are. How much we abuse them and truly magical they are in all they do for us. I want to make better decisions to lead a healthier life.

4. Actively and aggressively pursue my dream. No more waiting on the sidelines for shit to happen. I am going to make them happen. I am going to actively participate in making my dreams a reality.

5. Stop taking myself and life so seriously. Life is funny. Laugh more.

I can wait to see what this year brings. I am going to bring it in right. My house in order, my life in order, with great family and friends. That's what I am talking about!

Gratitude


With the holiday season making an exit, I have had some time to really reflect on the holiday season and this year as a whole. As I was surrounded by piles of wrapping paper and laughter and happiness I really realized how truly grateful and lucky I am. I try not to get all wrapped up in the toys and presents and food and take a moment to reflect on what I am greatful for.

1. I am grateful for my job. Although it may not be what I saw myself doing. It allows me to pay my bills and buy the things I want.

2. I am grateful for a place to call my own. I am so lucky to be able to create a home for Mike and I that I proud of and feel a sense of peace.

3. I am grateful for my husband. He has been so sweet and wonderful during all these crazy changes. He makes me laugh all day and I appreciate all he does for me and our new life.

4. I am grateful for my parents. They truly are my best friends, who love me unconditionally and support and understand me. I appreciate the close relationship I have with the both of them.

5. I am grateful for my family. They make me laugh they make me cry but my family keeps me grounded at all times.

6. I am grateful for Mimi. Although she drives me crazy at times, I appreciate her companionship and love. Her puppy kisses and the way she follows me around everywhere, even into the bathroom.

7. I am grateful for my sense of humor. It is quick it is dry and it is at times sarcastic. It is sometimes my saving grace when I am at my lowest.

8. I am grateful for my desire to learn new things. Whether it is learning a new recipe for picking up a new book, my willingness to learn has always kept me thinking.

So many things to be grateful for. So many things to reflect on and realize this life is so beautiful.

Wonder



+


Day Four: How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?

I have always been a very introspective kind of person. I have a habit which is sometimes good,but also sometimes bad of always thinking of future. Sometimes I let me mind get the best of me but more often than not. I like to think of all the good things coming my way. I like to see and picture myself doing and being the person I want to be and every way imagineable. Down to what I am doing with my life, the people I surround myself with, the way I feel, the way I look, the way I act and carry myself. I try to take my thoughts and I try to set them in motion, even if it's a small one. Thoughts become actions, and if I can make one small step each day to becoming the person I want this year and on, it will happen.

Moment



Continuing on with or reflection of this years events. Let's continue you on with the next prompt.
December 3 – Moment. Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year. Describe it in vivid detail (texture, smells, voices, noises, colors)
I would have to say it would be when Mr. and I were honeymooning in Hawaii. That trip made me feel alive again. I was cruising around the island with my new hubby, taking in all the sights, the history the people. It truly was an amazing time - for both of us.

I remember walking off the plane absolutely exhausted. We were one day behind already after having a lay over in Minneapolis. We were sitting in our own filth for 2 days and I was stinky and felt grimy and I just wanted to get to the hotel. After some drama with our baggage and a wrong turn down a very scary alley we found our hotel.

I remember how busy the streets were, everyone hustling about, the tour buses buzzing by, the smell of the crisp ocean only yards away. I remember it being so windy, my hair and dresses fluttering around as I took in the beautiful scenery. The front desk was outside... literally outside, can you imagine? Beautiful trees erected up throughout the landscaping hugging the hotel tightly.

I remember going to the ocean one afternoon, the waves were incredibly high - not surfer high but high enough to make you pee a little. Mr. and I thought it would wild crazy fun times to go swimming in it.... WHAT WERE WE THINKING?! The sand was white, and light and grainy and as we ran into the ocean, I thought to myself, I am here.... swimming in the ocean, off the coast of HAWAII! It was slightly overcast but it was gorgeous. It was a moment I know I'll never forget. Partly because of the beauty around me but partly because I got bitch slapped by mother nature. I got pounded by the waves so hard, where I was actually laying flat on my back on the ocean floor as a huge wave passed over me. As I tried to run back to safety another wave grabbed hold of me and dragged me back in.... it was funny and scary all at the same time. With an unhealthy dose of salt water pumping through my system and half the sand on the beach in my bathing suite we left that crazy ocean behind us knowing we gave it our all.

Reverb Day Two: Writing


Day Two: Writing. What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to your writing — and can you eliminate it?

I admit - this is something I am constantly working on. Far too much of my time is spent on silly things. I spend far too much time worrying. Watching TV. Facebook. Reading other's blogs.... And the funny thing is the times I feel most creative and productive to do something like write is when I simply can't. A.k.a my day job - behind a computer - in a cube.... so yeah.... nuff said huh?

I can most certainly eliminate it. I just have to make my time when I get home more productive. When I get home from work, I just want to chillax. I dont want to think, I dont want to read anything of value, I want to vege. And this is not living this is existing. I need to learn to turn.the.tv.off. I need to make the time for the things that matter most.

One Word

Since I feel I am in a writing funk, I stumbled across Reverb 10 - a way for you to reflect on the years events. So even though I am a couple days behind - let's get things started. The first prompt for discussion is:
One Word: Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you're
choosing that word. Now, imagine it's one year from today, what would you
like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?

I think the one word that I would use to describe this year, it would be: Whirlwind

This year has been absolutely insane, in the most magical sense of the word. Has it been stressful? Yes. Has it tested me and taught me hard lessons, absolutely. But has it been worth it? Without a doubt. Mr. and I brought in the year together and as the clock struck midnight we kissed each other and screamed "We're getting married this year!" It was a year of emotions. I started the year finishing up planning our (my) dream wedding, and I had such a good time doing it. I spent a lot of time with my mom and we got so much done - despite being on a strict budget. As I passed some of my last holidays at home I realized a phase of my life was coming to an end and although I was so ready physically to spread my wings and fly, emotionally I questioned if I could do this with grace.
Mr. and I hit the ground running (again) searching for our perfect starter home as well. 2009 proved to be a challenge for us finding the right seller to accommodate us and our restrictions, we ended the year with a lot of failed offers which left us feeling defeated. We had to have looked at over 100 houses (no joke) and it was starting to wear on us emotionally, and with the Obama first time buyers incentive winding down, we knew we had to buckle down and think smart. At the end of January we looked in a whole new area of town and absolutely loved the house. It was an older home with a lot of updates, hardwood floors, bay window, BIG backyard, garage, beautiful paint colors.... AND it was in our price range! We put an offer in and 3 days later - WE GOT IT!!!!!!!!!! we were both so happy and excited and lucky for us the loan process was painless. On March 3rd we walked into the title agency and signed our names on the dotted lines - we were HOMEOWNERS!!!!!
Our bridal shower came and went and next thing we knew, our wedding day had arrived. The weather was calm even though it threatened rain. I remember every single moment of that day. From waking up early in my bed which was the last time I would wake up as a single girl living at home. I remember feeling calm and excited all at the same time. I remember snuggling up on the couch with my mom as she played with my hair. I remember looking at my countdown clock - 10 hours, 14 minutes, 3 sec. I remember all the girls coming to the house, I remember driving together to my aunts shop, I remember popping champagne and eating a bagel. I remember all of us sitting around, getting our hair done - getting our makeup done laughing and crying. I remember it all. I remember RUSHING home to get my dress on and before I knew it I was in the waiting room. I remember my stomach with the butterflies flying about.... I remember waiting to walk down the aisle with my dad and those special words he told me. I remember that feeling as I turned the corner and saw him smiling. This was it. He was waiting for me, for us - to start our lives together.









The night was so magical surrounded by family and friends, we literally danced the night away. With good food, good wine, good company I couldn't have pictured a more perfect night. I didn't want it to end. And as Mr. and I walked into our hotel room for the night, I knew my life was never going to be the same. I remember waking up that next morning feeling so different - partly because I was extremely hungover, but partly because I woke up next to my husband - MY HUSBAND - how weird!!!

When I got home, I immediately went into nesting mode. I was buying furniture, and pictures and bookshelves and vases. I had so much freaking fun doing it. Our little home was coming together. Mr. and I were settling in as best as we could, you see he and I didn't live together before our wedding.... so this was all new to us. Living together, learning about each other - our little quirks. I found out that his socks are everywhere - in between cushions, under the bed, in my pant leg(?) I also found out that when he jumps out of the shower he usually likes to jumps out and head to his dresser instead of drying off on a rug. It was such an eye opener all the things - the good the bad the ugly. We are still learning about each other everyday. I learned he is a big time morning person, me, not so much. I learned he more laid back that I ever thought and I learned how much he really does love to cuddle :)
This year was so insane. From planning a wedding, to a bridal shower, to buying a home, to graduating college, to getting married, to flying to Hawaii, to moving out of my parents, to moving in with my husband, to find out the woes and amazingness of owning a home, to learning a lot about myself, to working full time, and to loving myself.
It has been a whirlwind of year and I feel like the fun has just begun. The word that I would like to capture 2011 would be Inspiration. I hope to find inspiration within myself to follow my dreams, even if its scary to take that leap. I hope to inspire myself to live all my wildest dreams even if I have to bust my ass to do it - I have never been a stranger to hard work - believe me.
I am so grateful for this year. I am grateful for all I have learned and all my blessings.... I hope you are too :)

Little Updates


I can not even believe the holiday season is already here. Thanksgiving is less than 3 days away. Christmas is just over 4 weeks away. Where did the time go?! And speaking of time flying - It has already been 6 months since Mike and I said "I do!" WHAT?!

This year:

1.) Got a house
2.) Got married :)
3.) Went to Hawaii for 6 amazing days.
4.) Moved out of my parents house and
5.) Moved into our new home
6.) Decorated our new home
7.) Got a new puppy
8.) Dealt with the perks and down falls of owning a home

A lot of life changing events in a very short period of time. But none-the-less it has been an amazing couple of months. I have a learned a lot of myself, about Mike, about being an adult, about owning a puppy... but it has been so worth it. And to top it all off - we are heading into our first major holidays together. This will be our first Thanksgiving and Christmas as a married couple. I am excited to come up with our own little traditions that we will carry on for years and years and hopefully still when we decide to expand our little family some more (but not for awhile) We are already starting a couple which makes my heart sing. Mike and I both come from wonderful families who we fortunately live very close too, but with that being said - we have a lot of visiting to do!

We have also made a nice little dent into our Christmas list. Scratching off name after name till hopefully it will be done come first weekend of December (keeping my fingers crossed) I have so much to do before the holidays arrive.

On my To Do list (from now till X-mas)
1.) Make fruit platter
2.) Make 2 pies (made cookies instead)
3.) Finish purchasing x-mas gifts
3.) Wrap gifts
4.) Write out and send X-mas cards
5.)Clean entire house (Nice scrub down)
6.) Menu if bro and sis-in-law come by for dinner (made enchiladas)
7.) Stock up for Cookie day (supplies)
8.) Cookie making with Jenn
9.) Finish decorating the tree

To name a few.... but I love this time of year (sans the weather) I cant wait to share this time of year with family and friends - I am truly blessed. What are you all doing for the Holidays?

Updates and other notes

So I dont know about you, but I am hella excited for the engagement announcement of Prince William and Kate Middleton I am a sucker for a sweet story and my God, hasnt this poor girl waited long enough - 8 years! Yowza! The only thing I feel if-y about is he gave her his mothers engagement ring. Now don't get me wrong - what a lucky lady to be wearing Princess Di's ring, and I get where he is probably coming from - it's an incredibly sweet gesture. However, I think that kind of stuff is bad juju. Let's be real their marriage (Di's and Charles) didnt end well, they got divorced. Ugh. I do think this is different - they are in their early thirities - been together for 8 years. I dont think there will be too many more surprises. ;-) It is a beautiful ring.
In other news. I have been thinking gift ideas. And to be honest I have everything I want and need - truly.... spoiled really (but grateful) but nonetheless - I love to window shop. First up is how gorgeous are these Boots by Frye? They are so beautiful I could cry real tears.


Also I am in the market for some new makeup. Some good stuff. Stuff that wont end up hurting your skin in the long run. Something light and wont come off easily. So I have been doing some research and came across this stuff Make Up Forever which can be found at your local Sephora. It's not terribly expensive but certainly not cheap and comes in a variety of shades.


I also have been hearing a lot about expensive cookware - more specifically Le Creuset cookware. I would have to sell a kidney to buy even their tinest pot but my GOD have I heard amazing things about this stuff. You can do anything in them - even make doughnuts. TRUE STORY. But instead of breaking the bank to have one of these in my possession, the beautiful Giada De Laurentiis made her own version of Le Creuset Dutch Oven - it's beautiful!


This is Me and Mike's first Christmas at our new house and since I am so excited about this, my house is almost completely decorated already - Haha! Tis the season, right?!

Don't fotget to....

Happy Thursday everyone. The week has been a busy one but alas, it's almost over which means the weekend is upon us! Hope everyone has a fabulous day :) xoxo

25 Things I Have Learned


Well, my 25th birthday has come and gone and sometimes I can't believe how far I have come in those 25 years and what I have learned.

1. Hard work really does pay off and there is no real satisfaction in taking shortcuts and skipping scene's.

2. Friends and boyfriends may come and go but your family is forever. If you let them, they'll be there for you.

3. Laughing really is the best medicine.

4. It's ok to push yourself and push yourself hard. It's amazing to see how far you can get physically, mentally and emotionally.

5. Anger only creates more anger, and although I may get angry I am learning to let it go faster and faster each time. It is exhausting being angry for any lengthy period of time.

6. Going out of your comfort zone to try new things is scary and amazing - you just have to try.

7. Sometimes you just.have.to.turn.the.tv.off. As much as I love Real Housewives of Atlanta, Beverly Hills, OC, Washington, New York (When are they going to let Detroit represent? No?) It's a great feeling to turn that sound off and frickin open a book.

8. You are a much better person, friend, daughter, wife, girlfriend etc when you do things for yourself. Even if it's just getting out of the house to get a pupkin spice latte.

9. Life is way to short. We are constantly riding on this line of life and death and we need to make sure we make the best out of each day. Did I do my very best?

10. Jealousy and envy are empty feelings. I read somewhere that sometimes your ahead and sometimes your behind and as long as you are defining your own definition of success these feelings cant exist.

11. Take pride in what you do - even if it is not the most glamorous thing.
12. Fake it till you make it.

13. Be positive.

14. The universe does eventually even itself out. People don't get away with things that aren't right - eventually the universe will balance out and they will get what they deserve. Don't try to speed it up, let it happen as it should.

15. Do the right thing - even if its the hard thing.

16. Be conscienctious of other's feelings.

17. It's ok to make mistakes. Thats how you grow and learn but remember "You can learn from others mistakes - not all mistakes are worth making"

18. Have discipline - so many people these days think that things should be handed to them or that they are entitiled, this is just not the case. Unless you are a princess, then yes you are entitled.... so.... have fun!

19. Take advantage of adversity. "If you cant live through adversity, you'll never be good at what you do. You have to live through the unfair things, and you have to develop the hide to not let it bother you and to keep your eyes focused on what you have to do"

20. Be happy. It is just that easy.

21. Have faith. Even if you dont believe in that man in sky. Having some kind of faith in this insane world will ground you, it will protect you, it will give you peace and hope.

22. Do what you feel is right - even if it isolates you. I have always stuck to what I believe in and at times it made me very unpopular and a lot of times people wouldnt come to me anymore because they knew what I was going to say (and they werent going to like it) but I never sacrafised my ideals for the majority and im happier for that.

23. People dont change. BUT people can improve.

24. Never stop learning.

25. Never stop growing. Constantly trying to improve myself physically, mentally and emotionally has never been easy for me but i'll never stop.

Music Philosophy

Have you ever come across something that is so genius that you kick yourself for not thinking of it first? Well I came across an amazing site called Music Philosophy and they make posters out of lyrics from different songs. They are so cute and full of color - I cant wait to grab one myself - the only problem is I don't know how I am going to choose!

The Rhythem is Gonna Get You

+

Growing up I have always known that music had a huge affect on me. I found myself being moved by a song, by its beat or lyric. I would listen to it over and over and over again till it was literally a part of me. I guess I didn’t realize how much I needed it until I went awhile without it. Sure I would listen to the radio on m y ride home but dance music a.k.a. Bruno Mars, Usher or Flo Rider doesn’t quite move my soul (at least not lately). So the other morning as I was rushing out the door as I usually am in the mornings I grabbed my itouch (I have an iphone so I don’t use I itouch as much.) When I got to work I turned on my itouch and man it was trip! I came across so many songs that brought back so many memories - songs I hadn't listened to in forever.

Hide and Seek by Imogen Heap - my taste really started to expand after hearing this. It's absolutely haunting and beautiful.

White Winter Hymnal by Fleet Foxes - my mom discovered this song on a fellow Michigan blogger and I was blown away. It's addicting and sucks you right in.

Bowl for Two by The Expendables - I always love a good Reggae song, this one has a more modern flare to it.

Breathe Me by Sia - originally I heard this song on the series finale of Six Feet Under and my GOD people, this song has moved by soul in ways I didn't know existed. It is so freaking beautiful that it could bring tears to my eyes, every time.

You Don't Know Me by Ben Folds - This song has this very upbeat feel to it, but the subject is about a couple of are coexisting and really don't know or get each other... Regina Spektor sings in it as well - BONUS!

Where is my Mind by City Wolf - very soothing and interesting song loved it the moment I heard it.

Hearing Damage by Thom Yorke - amazing beat, amazing lyrics and in a way kind of dark. Great song to unwind too.

Stay or Leave by Dave Matthews - I remember listening to this song over and over after my first real breakup. Dave Matthews always knows how to take it home. Beautiful song - yet very sad. Still always good to come back to here and there.

Unintended by Muse - Muse will always be one of my favorite bands of all time. But this particular song which is an oldie isn't really known. This song is so hauntingly beautiful it gives me chills.

How it ends by DeVotchKa - This song made me cry the first time I heard it. I originally heard it on SYTYCD and the dance that went along with it really hit home for me. It was exactly what I needed in that moment of time and for that this song will forever hold a special place in my heart.

These are a couple of my favorite songs and I love them all because they helped me in some way lifted my spirit when I needed it, inspired me when I was empty and put a smile back on my face. What music/songs holds a special place in your heart?

Monday Morning Musings

It's been about 5 months since I moved into our first home and having your own home has been a wonderful experience (For the most part) I love the independence I have, the freedom to come and go as I please and of course the creative outlet to put our home together anyway I wish. So far it has been a lot of fun. I hope that putting together our home will be a continuous work in progress because let's face it - we are always changing and evolving and so should our home. I am at about 80% of where I want to be with our home. A couple things I still want to get done are:

  1. Order and hang up wedding pictures in the hall
  2. Framed collage on the living room wall
  3. Paint the cabinets in the kitchen
  4. Re-touch up the middle bedroom paint
  5. Get two 3 shelve book cases for the middle bedroom
  6. New bedroom set for guest bedroom
  7. Re-moltch the landscaping in the front
  8. Start a little garden in the backyard
  9. Get a great organization system in place

Just to name a few. And while I am not a big fan of interior design I have found myself flipping through some articles for inspiration. Here are a few I grabbed.
