Man vs. Woman Series #1

New year, new purpose, new goals.

I asked Mike last night what his goals for 2011 were. He replied, "I don't have any." I asked it in this way specifically because I know he doesn't believe in New Year's resolutions.

I said, "Exactly. That's what makes you such a man."

I, on the other hand, when asked, replied, "Well, first I'd like to shed 30 lbs, run my first 5K and get better about money." Which makes me such an ambitious, over-committed, over-achiever.

He said, "Wow, a 5K, really?"

He's a doubter.

I did convince him to finally buy a bike and commit to riding it three times a week. He said he'd go get one this weekend. We'll see about that.

Baby steps.

*in an effort to start yet another goal for 2011, I'm trying something new on the blog simply called my Man vs. Woman Series. I've got lots to say, so stay tuned.


  1. That is too funny! I had nearly the same conversation with my husband the other day. He never creates resolutions for the new year and I always create way too many...wonder why that is.

    (I love your blog and I'm looking forward to this new series in 2011!)

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
