The BOLD and the beautiful

My friends Megan DVD from Beauty in the Attempt and Gail from My Repurposed Life are doing a really neat blog hop!! They are inviting people to get critiques on their blogs and to critique the blogs of others. Sounds like fun!!

I decided to join! So please feel free to critique my blog--tell me what you like, what could be better, etc. Please be gentle:)

Gearing up for the New Year and new challenges!!

Happy New Year!!! 2011 is looking to be a great year--graduation, hopefully a new house (fingers crossed I get a job), a trip out west (the cabin and meals are being paid for by my in-laws!), and who knows what else. Needless to say, I'm pretty stoked! However, I do have a few challenges ahead of me. The one I'm most excited about is our weight loss challenge. My mother in law and I have decided that all of us going on the trip need to lose weight (we want to hike some pretty nice trails in the Rocky Mountains). She threw down the challenge of a couple's weight loss. Whatever couple loses the most combined weight-wins. I'm not sure what we're "playing" for yet--but my competitive juices are in high gear (I can be a little competitive--I was in band and played softball in high school--and I HATE losing). Now to motivate the hubby... Any suggestions? ;)
