New Year's - Day 3 - Resolution

My name is Heather, I am a mother of two precious girls, Avery 2 years 9 months and Emersyn - 1 year and 6 months. I am 27 years old and have been married to my best friend (he was literally my best friend all through high school and after), Jeremy, for 6 years and a few months.


Scary? Yes, I think so. I am the Queen of starting things and not finishing them. I actually set up this blog months ago and never followed through with it (got frustrated and through the computer across the room computer issues). So, back to the intro, every year I make a "going to get skinny" meaningless resolution that I do for about 2-3 days and then give-up, but this year I really wanted to make a GREAT resolution that I had to do with making memories. I read several blogs, some people I know and some I don't, but either way it is enjoyable and I am always envious that these women have a virtual scrapbook (because I have tried scrapbooking and well, we won't go there) to show their children. So after giving up and deciding not to resolute at all, TONIGHT, I decided this was IT. I am going to become a blogger and I am super excited about it!!  I am working on an worn out laptop (the screen is hanging on by one hinge - literally) and it has been used and abused. In efforts to help make blogging a habit, I have ordered a new laptop and this will hopefully keep me going. Also, being very new to this, I am learning about designing (takes FOREVER) and pictures. So bare with me on this learning journey and give me some tips if you have any.

Now on to the important stuff. New Year's is probably one of my least favorite holidays and has been for a very long time. It always seems to be a let down and everyone wants to make BIG plans and nothing ever seems to happen the way it is supposed to and it's very anticlimatic. So most years, my husband I have stay very low key for New Year's and this year was no different. I wanted the girls to know it was a holiday and there is a reason to celebrate a new year (the fact that we are here to celebrate is reason to celebrate, right?) and so I through them a sweet very impromptu party. I let them pick out the decorations and so we got Elmo plates and cupcake decorations with purple balloons (Emersyn's pick) and Tinkerbell napkins and cupcake decorations with pink balloons (Avery's pick).

We also ate "junk" type of food (pizza rolls, mini cheeseburgers, chip and dip) and had chocolate milk (special treat because I only let them have white milk - usually). Then after our meal we made a pallet of blankets to watch Toy Story (their choice) and stayed up late (8:45 as opposed to 7:30).
