Exciting news!!

Ok.. I have not been on here in a while and for good reason!  I have some exciting news and I knew if I was on here, I would let the cat out of the bag sooner than I should!  So I have avoided the internet a little!

The exciting news......I am going to be a mommy in October!  I'm pretty excited.  We have been trying for a little over a year and I had just about given up hope!  Then, ta-da! 

The tentative due date is October 11, and I will definitely post pics throughout the pregnancy!

So far, I am trying to do so well on the resolutions.  I watched what I had for lunch and didn't have a soft drink either (gasp!).  I'm in the process of finding healthy recipes (if I find any worth sharing, I will) and will start to cook more and exercise more.  Luckily we have a Wii.  Between that and work, I should be good!  As long as I can keep up the motivation, I'll be in good shape (figuratively--and hopefully literally by the end of the year).  I have been couponing and trying to find good deals to save money.  I'm still a rookie, so I'm not that good yet...but I will get better. 

The taking time for me thing...not going so well.  I feel like I have so much on my plate and I'm always going, going, going.  If I could get the dear husband to help, it may be a lot easier. 

Good luck on your resolutions!

Happy New Year!!

I'm hoping 2013 is the best year yet!  I have made resolutions that I'm hoping to keep. I'm going to share those with you and I will share my progress (hopefully) with you as well. 

1. Lose weight (isn't this everyone's first resolution--or so it seems!)
2. Gain more financial independence.
3. Eat healthier--less take out!
4. Save more money on groceries and other stuff.
5. Take better care of myself/take more time for myself!
6. Keep the house clean... (any volunteers to help?)

I have also created my bucket list that I hope to start tackling this year as well! I made a book with 100 things I want to do before I die and have a page for each item to journal about it!  I will share bits and pieces of that with you all as the year progresses as well!

Best wishes for the new year.  I hope it finds you happy and healthy!

Wow.  I haven't posted in well over a year. I blame it on school, boards, and the new job!

That will change.  One of my promises (to myself) is that I will take more time for myself and blog/craft/do whatever I want to do more! 

I started selling Longaberger (for fun---and the discount!) and my friend sells Stella and Dot jewelry.  I actually had a Stella and Dot show today!  Other than that, work has eaten up my time...Grr.  I did get to go to Hilton Head the last of October with my family (mom, dad, brother).  That was a blast (I will post more about that later). Oh, and I FINALLY got to meet my little nephew in person this summer (he is now 2). 

Christmas is coming, which means I will be busy crafting and will keep the blog updated with different crafts as well.

This is just a getting back into blogging entry, but I promise I will post more!  Thanks for listening!

Spring Cleaning Day 1

Spring cleaning with Ask Anna has begun!! Ok, so technically, it began yesterday. I just didn't get pics taken until today... Our "assignment" for yesterday was to wash/iron our draperies and clean our blinds/shutters. I have very few draperies (1 in the bedroom and 1 in the bathroom). In the rest of the rooms, I have open windows or blinds only. I got my curtains washed and my blinds cleaned, and I must say, it feels fresher already!

Ignore the unmade bed--the sheets are in the wash! It's hard to tell in these pics, but these are nice and clean and I feel happy (for the moment!) I'm actually looking forward to day 2!

The winner of the hearts!!

Ok. So, since I had two people interested in the hearts, I drew names from a hat (yes a bit old-fashioned, but very easy and hard to mess up! Ha ha). The winner of the hearts is (drumroll please)..... Caroline. So, Caroline, just send me an e-mail with your info and your hearts will be on their way! Congrats!

Another tchotchke!

Ok, I have found another tchotchke! I received these as a gift for the bathroom that is being remodeled. As sweet as the gesture is, I had already bought accessories and will not use these.

If you would like these, comment and become a follower! I will randomly select who gets them (if there's more than 1 comment) and I will pay to send them to you!
