hint, hint

I came across this today and thought it was just adorable...

"Owl" Always Love You

The Vintage Pearl has some amazing stuff and if I could afford it, I would take one of everything. I do have one necklace from there and it is one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. I highly suggest checking out their website, watch out, you will want one of everything, too.


Where have I been? I am not completely sure myself. I think the past two weeks have been just a bit of a blur, and the moments that are not blurs are filled with laziness (not a great way to kick off 2012! me and my big resolutions blah, blah, blah).
But don't worry,  I am back. Sabbatical is over and back to sharing the ins and outs of our life.

I kept two out of my four resolutions from last year. Not all that great. So here goes for this year...
Resolutions for 2012:

1. Trim the fat- aka losing that debt that has been following me around for a bit. If all goes as planned, we should be credit card debt free in 2013.

2. Trim the fat- aka losing some weight & getting healthier. I need to begin to treat my body & mind better. 2012 will be the year (seriously). 

3. Ride the bike. Can't wait to spring ahead so I can get out in the mornings and ride the bike. Goal is 300 miles this summer. 

4. Recycle, more. For a family of 3 + a dog, I feel like we create way too much garbage. Lots more recycling, reusing and less waste.

Hoping for a 4 out of 4 next year...


We are taking advantage of Mother Nature's warm weather here in NY. Usually we have snowbanks and snowmen in our lawn. This year we are hitting the pavement and feeling the sun's warmth.
