New Year's Resolutions

Resolution #1: Get in shape
OK, I'm on week one of my diet and exercise plan and I've lost 4 pounds. Yippee! I have lots more to go, but I'm very proud of myself. I have resisted lots of temptations and I have even exercised a bit. I've gotta make my health a No. 1 priority. My DH has also lost a couple of pounds... we're making some important lifestyle changes. I want to create a life change journal to track our progress. Just gotta find the time to do it.

Resolution #2: Clean and organize (not to mention get rid of stuff)
I've been cleaning, organizing and making my "don't want" piles. It feels good to get rid of excess and simplify my living space and scrap room, but boy is it a lot of work! I'll be doing a little bit here and there for a while, but it's so worth it.

Resolution #3: Stop stressing and worrying so much
I worry about EVERYTHING and I also have a lot of stress in my life as a result of my career, my family, myself, etc. I need to find some balance and take it one day at a time.

My new friend, Epson
Another tidbit I want to share with you today: I love my new printer!!! My wonderful DH bought me TWO printers for Christmas. Aren't I a lucky girl? LOL! Well, this little Epson is my fave ever. It's portable and easy to use and the quality is outstanding. I can print wallets, 4x6, 3x3, proof sheets and much more. It even burns images onto a CD/DVD with ease. I just can't get enough of it...

A good mail day
I received my January Cocoa Daisy kit and it's gorgeous! I love the subtle colors and the vintage feel. I can just see my Paris photos or even some wedding pics on these papers...

Well, that's all for now... What are some of your New Year's resolutions? Please share!

Good night my friends!
