Coming in 2013

A garden....

In 2013 my New Year's resolution is to start and maintain a vegetable garden. I'm hoping my garden will look similar to the one in the picture. However, I'm not making any promises. I'm going to be honest, I have a hard time keeping flowers alive so a vegetable garden is going to be hard work.

Stayed tune for updates on the garden.

It's the end of the world as we know it.

Due to the world ending tomorrow, I thought I'd highlight a few things I did not accomplish on my Bucket List. Before we get into the list, you should know I've only had this bucket list for 5-6 years. Obviously, that is not enough time to tackle some of these things. Ok with that said on to my list....

1. Correctly fold a fitted sheet
Why is folding a fitted sheet so dang difficult? If I could correctly fold the stupid sheet, it would help with my sheet cabinet. Instead, I have a cabinet full of rolled up fitted sheets. I had high hopes for my sheet cabinet. I wanted it to be organized and easily accessible. Sadly, it will never happen.

2. Make my first millions from the stock market
The world will end with me being poor. Suck. I really thought I'd go out with a bang.

3. Meet Paula Deen
Paula and I were going to be BFFs. We were going to create tasty treats in her fancy kitchen. Of course when I say we I really mean her. Let's face it, I'll just sit on a bar stool and watch her add butter to everything.

4. Attend OU/TX football game
I wanted to be part of the crowd, eat a corn dog at the TX State Fair, and run around yelling TX sucks.

5. Have a pantry like Pioneer Woman
Who wouldn't want a pantry with a ladder? Seriously?

Blogger World, I'm afraid it's time to conclude this post. Good luck to everyone!   

Over and Out

Let the Good Times Roll

This weekend Sister #1 and I ran our race for the month of December.
As always, it was a very fun race. I know I say this for many races, but this race is one of my favorites. Here's why...
I love it! You never know what crazy costume you will see at this race. By the way, the gingerbread man finished in full costume. Even more impressive, they only finished 5 minutes after me.

Folks, do you realize next month Sister #1 and I will have completed our goal of running a race each month for a year? It's true. I'm so proud of us; especially Sister #1. This past year, she's taken up running and I'm  thankful for her new habit. If it weren't for her, I might be running alone.

Four Things Friday

Four Things I'm Eating This Week:

1. Tassimo Chai
I love seeing my morning friends at Starbucks. HOWEVER, I cannot afford a daily Starbucks habit. This is  why my Tassimo machine and I are such good friends.

2. Chicken
I've eaten chicken every night this week. It's easy, tasty, and cheap.

3. Jello Chocolate Pudding 
Tuesday night I made myself a batch of pudding. Normally, I'm not a huge chocolate pudding fan but Tuesday night it sounded great.
4. Greek Yogurt
Folks, I'm a yogurt eating machine. I eat yogurt everyday. I'm not being dramatic. It's packed in my lunch everyday.

My friend Teresa

Blogger World, have you met my friend Teresa? Well, it's high time you did!

Meet Teresa...

Everyone should have a friend like Teresa. She's beautiful, thoughtful, patient, wise, funny, great walking buddy, and even better email buddy. Yes, everyone should have a Teresa in their life.

Earlier this week I was feeling a bit blue, and Teresa came to my rescue. 

Yesterday, I received a cheerful bouquet of flowers from my dear friend.  
Don't these flowers just make you smile? By the way, ignore all the crap in the background of this picture.
The important thing is to focus on the flowers. These flowers made me smiled for the rest of the day.

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank Teresa for my cheerful bouquet of flowers. 
And you my friend.... mean the world to me.
