New Shoes Baby!

I am so excited today that I just had to share... I got a new pair of shoes. Well, I haven't gotten them yet but I ordered them. It is love. A friend enlightened me to the joy that is Jeffrey Campbell shoes and when I saw these I knew I must have them. Not one second thought plowed through my budget-happy mind when this purchase went through.

I just can't wait until February 28th when they ship!!

Lingerie Party Invitations

Our friends Kelly & John are getting married in about 2 months & I have the proud honor of hosting the "personal shower" next month. I have named it the Tail Feather Lingerie Party. I thought personal shower sounded sort of lame so I came up with my own name for it!

I had today off from work so I decided to put the rainy day to good use and get the invitations put together. I chose to use navy blue invitations & envelopes with a green & pink envelope liner and a peacock feather motif. Check them out...

All supplies are from my favorite store on earth: Paper Source

I can't wait for the party!

Eating Healthy

To keep in line with my new year's resolution of being healthy, I have started buying alot of organic, kosher, free-range, hormone & antibiotic free.. everything.

Last night Mark and I decided to make hamburgers for dinner with a nice
side salad - using organic lettuce & tomatoes and hormone/antibiotic free, vegetarian fed, free range ground beef... thank you Trader Joes!

This is my burger. Simple with just a touch of mustard.

And this... is Mark's burger. Complete with 2x as much meat as mine... and don't forget the bbq sauce, sauteed onions & cheddar cheese to complete it.

I'm not sure we're on the same wave length!

Holy Cats! It's been an entire month since I posted last - Such a slacker! I have to admit that December was a busy month - the holidays sort of snuck up on us & have now passed and left us scratching our heads a bit!

So, where better to start than with New Year's Resolutions...
In no particular order:

- Be as healthy as possible. This seems really broad but I didn't want to say "lose weight" or anything like that. Mark and I are planning to start our family this year and it seems to me that healthy mama = healthy baby. So, bye-bye sugar substitutes & caffeine... Hello organic fruits & veggies!

- Read as much as possible. As I mentioned above, we're planning to start our family this year & the crazy person that I am, I am loving reading everything I can get my hands on about pregnancy and parenting. I am a self-admitted nerd when it comes to this stuff - I love to learn as much as I can. I've already read a handful of books & a ton of magazines - got 2 more books for Christmas & ordering another from tomorrow! I will be a virtual encyclopedia about having a baby!

- Take more pictures. I say this every year but I really mean it this time. Reviewing the past year in pictures from my camera was depressing. It went from Christmas 08 to July, then October and then New Years 2010. Lame! This year, more pictures. This will also benefit my blog because I'll have more festive things to show you! Yay!

It is a short list but the way I see it - more chances of success! I have high hopes for you, 2010!
Happy New Year!
