If you want to see where i'll be heading for Christmas, check out my moms website! She just posted pictures of the house decorated for Christmas. After seeing them, i truly cant wait to go home and see!!!! Is this not straight out of a magazine!?!?! She has the touch....what can i say...
And, since that is the case, I have decided to wrap up my 12 Days Sale early! I wanted to make sure you all could take advantage of the sale FOR the holidays. So the pieces for the last 6 days are all available in my shop now. Today only! Merry Christmas!
Then it all kinda died down. And now i haven't been to the gym in weeks. NOT ONCE! Shame on me! (Did i mention how expensive our gym is....?) My goals haven't changed, and i still have all the clothes and tunes, the only thing i lost was the motivation. I need it back asap!
So Ive decided to take my little mission/journey/adventure/challenge to blog land. I will be posting every Friday about the week Ive had, my mood, motivations, etc. I'm hoping the fact that I'm broadcasting my progress to the world will make me a little more accountable, and keep the motivation up this time. I hope you guys don't mind this weekly peek into my personal life! I really want to reach my goal once and for all!!
The goal is simply this; to be healthier, happier, more confident and 30 pounds lighter!
Because i think everyone needs to be rewarded for hard work, I am going to give myself 3 mile stone rewards. Each after 10 pounds of weight loss. I haven't decided on the first two, but the 3rd Ive wanted for a very long time! My sweet reward is going to be a new pair of expensive, thin jeans. Think Joe's or true religion..... you know. I cant think of a better time to get my first pair! Suggestions for the other two?
Thanks for listening to me ramble! I'm looking forward to my new weekly post, and hopefully you like them too!
But I did just discover that Brooklyn Bride is hosting a holiday card swap this year. All you have to do is make a card (or 5)! Here are all the deets. Im seriously considering doing this...am i crazy!?!?! Is a card less stressful than an ornament?
I can see a fun girls night of card making and wine. What a good excuse to get together and relax before the holidays kick into high gear!
Aside from including some of the hip-est local artists around, the entire magazine is dedicated to shopping local this holiday season, and covers/shows a lot of handmade gift ideas. Great issue!
Here is my weekend in pictures...
Im embarrassed to admit that it's taken me so long to discover Red Tree in Hampden. SOOOOO awesome! If your like me and haven't made your way into the store yet, do it now! Ive also been totally converted to a knitter. I do it at work, at home, before bed.... I love it! LovelYarns is down the street from Red Tree, and a must see if your into knitting!
