it seems like just yesterday i was talking to
a co-worker about helping him get healthy, making it his goal to hike up koko head crater. we didn't do it once this year. sad.
in acceptance of the awards below, here are eight things i hope to keep up with next year:
  • sleep early (at least a few times a week!)
  • meet up with the girls monthly
  • exercise, exercise, exercise
  • schedule one-on-one time with the minis and stick to it
  • try something new every month
    (restaurant, beach, hike, etc...)
  • read at least one book a month
  • fix my laptop & get new desk for home 
  • better organize my posts

(nails: essie fiji & turquoise and caicos)
sweet & salty popcorn.
(dress, michael kors (similar); shoes, jessica simpson (buy); bag, h&m (gift))

One thing you did not mention was get gobs of sponsors and FREE clothes and shoes and purses and...I think that would be an awesome thing to put on your to do list. If anyone will do it, you will. Happy New Year.

Great resolutions. With the exception of trying a new thing an the girls meeting (I already do those), I would like to adopt all of them. I really need to exercise and go to bed earlier and would love to read a book a month and spend one one one time with each kid.
