Hello 2013

I have been a really bad blogger lately, I’m sorry!

It’s the beginning of the new year, when everyone is making resoluions, and that means I should be better right? Well I was out of town in California, helping out Jake with his new business (which did awesome this year!), and starting a new job of my own too! So I was a little busy! I feel bad I wasn’t around. But, hopefully I’m back now.

2012 was an interesting year. I won’t bore you with details, but I think I made a lot of good changes and know I had a lot of good times with good friends. I had some hard times too, but I think those only helped to push me forward. I’m really looking forward to 2013 and hope it brings me a lot more good things! Crossing my fingers 🙂

I had a huge list of resolutions last year, and this year I have a lot of those in my head, as usual. I think it’s always good to keep them in mind to make yourself a better person, but I’ll just write down a few. Of course I probably won’t be consistent with them, but at least I will try. And of course they are pretty generic. O well, at least they are good to shoot for right?

1. Be more on time! I am the worst at this in the morning! I never want to wake up. (Along these lines, I will be trying to wake up earlier too)

2. Work out consistently. I would like to work out at least 4 times a week. (I would also like to start working out in the mornings, but see #1)

3. Eat Healthy!!! (I’m buying a blender so I can make smoothies!)

4. Stay positive. I have a tendancy to get down on myself and I need to not do that.

5. SAVE $!!!!!

6. I am going to decorate my house this year. I started last year, but I’m actually going to do it this year. It just looks unfinished all the time. Ugh!

7. Eat out less. (which will help me save money and eat healthier, I think…haha)

So those are my main resolutions. We will see how they go. They are pretty simple, but that should make them easier to keep right?

I hope you all have a great 2013!

Where We Belong

I usually really love Emily Giffin books, and while it was still a quick, fun read, I didn’t love this one.

Marion has the perfect life as a television producer in New York City, but when Kirby, the daughter  she gave up for adoption 18 years earlier, shows up on her door things start to change. Marion kept her daughter a secret from everyone so she is forced to confront a lot of things from her past and now her present because of her secrets.

The book is from Marion and Kirby’s point of views, so at least it is interesting to see how it affects both of them.  However I didn’t feel The storylines were fully developed. Marion was kind of predictable and flat. Kirby was more interesting at least, but I still felt like the story just ended.

Like I said I usually love Emily Giffin so I hope she redeems herself with the next book, but if you’re looking for something easy and light for an airplane or beach maybe read this. It’s just not thought provoking.

Christmas Break 2012

My Christmas break was great. I always love going home. I don’t get to see my family very much, so that is always fun. I am never ready to back back to Utah. Anyway, here’s a little sneak peak of my vacation.

Taylor and I on the way home from the airport.

On a morning walk with my Mom and Tika.

The Christmas trees that we all made in kindergarten…Taylor’s looks more like Godzilla than a tree. 🙂

Shopping and dinner

Stuck at Bass Pro shops while Adam shopped…the dog bed was the best seat in the house.

Apparently the Griswald’s moved to Redlands. #gotlights?

watching movies with Tika

Dinner with my brothers

At Taylor’s soccer game before I had to fly home.
