winter wonderland…

January 20, 2012

friends, it’s 2:15am and i’ve been girl-talkin’ with my roomie for the past three hours. i miss husband & the kiddos but really, this isn’t so bad…

i was starstruck this evening. starstruck by my favorite blogger’s husband. the last photo on the right – do you recognize him??? he is married to miss james, over at bluebird vintage. if you have never visited her site – go now.

i’m signing off, but will be back on monday with a full alt. report + i’m sharing my valentine’s ideas with you next week!

enjoy your weekend!

business cards!!!

at approximately 2pm today i had a thought,

drove over to pick them up, arriving at 5:45pm,
parked. paid {only eleven dollars!}.

and i feel officially ready for alt.!

i have big big plans for you, twenty eleven…

husband and i were chatting last week, and while he was mentioning goals for 2011 in regards to his company, he mentioned this quote…

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. ~Albert Einstein

these seventeen words sent my mind in a whirlwind.

thrilling excitement.

how often i find myself doing the same thing, over and over and over, and waiting for improvement in so many categories of my life.

how many thousands of situps can i do, and expect my stomach to be flat?
