Day 73 - Can I Get a Side of Purple with That? and 5 Goals of 2013

Happy Saturday everyone!  I am at work - SAY WHAT? - sadly yes, this is the case.  In order to take off Christmas Eve and Christmas Day I needed to make sure my men were covered...I am getting ready to leave though - so it hasnt been too bad, just quiet!  I started off the morning locking my keys in the car - while I was running into the public library.  I was blown away with how many people offered to let me use their phone- 3 were pulling them out of their pockets - and how many people offered to drive me home - so kind - it made me cry even more - but luckily the super sweet hubs drove my sick car and rescued this damsel in distress :) And there could have been way worse ways to spend my time waiting for him, um hello library - my most favorite place :)
Yesterday, I delivered Christmas gifts to all of my daughter's teachers - 6 total:
- I included candy, nail polish, a small manicure set, a small thing of hand lotion and some chapstick - my goal was to make sure they were able to relax over the holidays while not chasing 16 three year old around :) - I think I did a good job, I think they liked it :) It felt so great to deliver gifts to the women who teach my child every day - I hope they know they are valued immensely.  I am one of those moms that makes my child thank them every day - I have been doing this since she started talking, so hopefully they know I am thankful :)

So, I have a major the color purple.  I love it - it's a calming color for me and over the past few years, this color is starting to make it's way into my daily life, check it out:

Purple watch, earrings, kindle cover, phone cover, scarf and shirt I wore yesterday...these are just some of the many items I own in this glorious color :) It makes me happy :)

Finally, I am joining in with one of my favorite gals, Mel, from 4 Kottez, for 5 Wishes :) (If you dont read her blog, go check it out stat - she is hilarious, gorgeous and tons of fun)
This is 5 wishes that you want for 2013:
1 - Run my first race, whether it is a 5K or 10K is to be determined, but my goal is to register for it by February 1, 2013.
2 - Strut my stuff in a bathing suit like this one:

Hopefully next summer :) And yes, I have stretch marks, therefore one pieces are the way to go for me, but they can still be super sexy like this one :)
3 - Find a group of working moms that live nearby to get together for play dates and such on the weekends.
4 - Go on a weekend getaway with my hubs :) We need some one on one time!
5 - Work on being a better mommy, there is always room for improvement and I would really like to start living in the moment with her, playing or snuggling or whatever - but living in the now.  Plus, I would like to be more patient with her, sometimes I am not.  No one is perfect, but I want to strive to do better.

Ok, That's it folks, I have to work tomorrow I will be back then.


  1. I'm hoping to be able to wear shorts for the summer. I hope to get into shape enough so I can it's been 10 years since I've worn shorts.
