resolution update

as you may remember, i actually made new years resolution this year and wrote them down in {this blog} back at the beginning of january. well, i'm actually pretty impressed with what i've done so far. so impressed, i thought i would do a little update. i haven't been successful in all of them, but i didn't put them in any type of ranking order, so i've been skipping around and doing what i can.

c's baby book/scrap booking - i had never made a real scrap book until i had a baby. well, i take that back. i made one back in high school, but it isn't that amazing. it's mostly just pictures and random things i printed off the computer. but scrap booking has really come a long way in the past 10 years. there are so many cute options out there. and when i ventured into this project i was pretty intimidated by all the options. but i've really had a lot of fun with it. the ladies in my office gave me a beautiful scrap book full of pre-made pages where all i have to do is add the pictures. mostly baby's firsts. first bath, first day home etc. but there were a few pages i wanted to make myself. and there were a few they left out or didn't give me enough of. this past weekend i got to work and added all the pages i wanted to. it was really fun. i've learned that scrap booking can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. i'm a simplistic person, so my pages are cute, but probably mostly because of the pictures! =)

so, resolution #2 is moving right along!

baking - i've been having a lot of fun with this one. i quickly mentioned in {this blog} that i wanted to make a red velvet cake for valentine's day. well i did and it was awesome! soooo tasty! we are still snacking on it. it's getting easier and easier for me to accomplish these tasks. i was able to do most of them before, but i hit a stress level somewhere in the midst. this cake came so easy and is so good. again, {here} is sunny's recipe. it's pretty easy. you can do it!

resolution #7 - getting better.

dates with shaun - shaun and i were able to do 2 dates this past week! last tuesday night we got to go to the UK vs Alabama game and we went out to dinner before hand. it was really fun to just go out and not worry about what time we needed to come home. the game didn't start until 9 so we got in late. i felt like i was back in college! and then this past sunday we had a nice date at home. we (shaun) made an awesome dinner and we had a candle lit dinner at the table. we enjoyed an amazing dessert, and then snuggled up on the couch and watched a movie. we were really intentional about it being a fun "home date" and i'm so thankful to live with my best friend.

resolution #8 - practice will make perfect.

blogging more - all i'm going to say here is that this is my 2nd blog of the day!

resolution #5 - check

so i'm feeling pretty good about my resolutions so far and it's only mid february. (pat on the back)

how are yours coming?
