Over Limit

Well, tonight I was going to post about all my super awesome deals I got at Victoria's Secret, and as I was uploading pictures I got a message saying I hit my limit...what!? I'm not sure if I posted about it before but A has a blog on his own site. See he is a User Experience designer, aka a web designer, and he has told me that he would make me a blog and I've decided to take him up on the offer. Hopefully he finishes it soon and I will come back and share the link. I love the work he does so I know it will be great! 

I will save my posts that I had for this week for the new blog-I have deals, recipes, outfits, my January dinner calendar, and my closet organization (seriously you should see how beautiful it looks now, aaah) Promise me you'll venture over to my new blog! :)

Fitness Friday

I've decided that on Fridays I will blog about my favorite workouts, health recipes, and all things fitness.
Today I will start with a workout. I have all my workouts on notebook paper so I thought it would be nice to have them on here. I like learning new workouts so feel free to leave me some of your favorites!

Workout #1 (45 minutes, 2 miles)
.5 mile warm up (my gym has a track where 10 laps=1 mile)

30 lunges with MB
30 presses (each arm) with MB
Run 2 laps (2/10ths of a mile)
Repeat set

30 band bicep curls (with resistance band- the thicker the harder)

Repeat set

100 jump rope
50 crunches on Bosu Ballast ball
30 hamstring curls with Bosu Ballast ball

Sweet Dreams

I've been having the itch to redo a room. One day I woke up and decided I wasn't a fan of our winter duvet cover anymore. I liked it when our room was a light blue color, but the brown and the gray just isn't working for me anymore. What do you think?

I've been looking all over the internet for something to pop out to me. I've seen things that I like but not love. Here are the front runners:
Regency Home 300 Thread Count Puzzle Print Duvet Cover Set
The cream and white from Overstock. Might be too plan though

A pop of color from Crate & Barrel. Just not sure if it is the right pop.

Mackenzie duvet
I really like this one from Bed Bath & Beyond just not sure if I'm sold on the green.

I guess I'll have to stay on the hunt. Where are some good  stores to check out? I will take any suggestions!

We are also getting some new carpet in the bed room. Thanks to some friends and family we racked up over $200 in Lowes gift cards over the holidays. The carpet we have in there now is the cheapest stuff and isn't comfy to step on. I have to decide what color would look best. I am thinking the 3rd row down and 3rd from the left. Again, I will take suggestions :)

2011 Goals

As I stated last year I don't like to set my self 'resolutions'. I prefer the words goals. If I don't reach them I am okay with that. It is just fun to set something and check in every now and then and see how I am doing. Enough with the boring stuff, on to the goals! 

Goal #1- Get & Stay Organized: My husband will tell you that I am the messy one. He is someone that likes order, where I am the one that will just throw things in my closet and clean it later. I finally got sick of being that way and have decided to change! This week we bought stuff to organized my closet and dresser drawers. 

Goal #2- Run a 10k: As you know last year I got really into running. It is amazing what our bodies can do. This year I want to push myself and run a 10k (6.2 miles). This is a very do-able goal for me. I think this will by my first 10k. Right before my 25th birthday. 

Goal #3- Be More Crafty:  I have a whole room dedicated to my crafts. I need to take sometime this year and work on some stuff. Who knows, maybe I could even make some stuff and sell it at local craft shows or! 

Goal #4- Shop For Only What I Need: Now if you ask my close friends you will find out that I am a thrifty shopper. I look for deals and never buy full price. This year I am wanting to do something different. After cleaning out my closet and drawers I realized I have enough clothes. There are other things I can get with that money-save for Lasik (that A just got, so jealous!), use the money to finish our basement, again (it flooded a few months after we moved it and had to rip up the carpet), or decorate our guest bedroom. If I buy something new I am make a rule that I have to get rid of something. 

Goal #5- Blog More: As the years have gone by I have blogged more and more every year. I want to have more of a direction on my blog. I enjoy blogging because I get to document my life and look back. I want to know what my readers want to see more as well. I want to grow my blog too. I am open to suggestions! 

That's it for this year! I plan on continuing my goals from last year as well. I will do check ins every now and then to track my progress!
