Epic Fail

Did someone say resolutions? Sorry, for being MIA. No excuses, I'm just lazy.
I'm still on my weight loss journey, very slow progress for the first month but I have lost 6 lbs! I really need to get a scale, the only time I weigh myself is when I'm at my cousin's. Which I think is a good idea, kind of. I find myself on that thing when I get there and when I leave. I'm afraid if I get one, I'll be living on it.
Oh and today I had the worst food poisoning experience. Well, my only experience with it but it was still horrible. Horrible. I'm dying to get on the scale now. You know, just to see.
In other news, we're planning our Michigan trip. It's been so long and we haven't been on any type of vacation since 2010. This year we're going to Kalamazoo (of course), Detroit and Windsor. That means I've got to push someone to get his passport. We're also spending the night in Chicago on our way home. Yes, we are driving! I can't imagine bringing our 2 1/2 year old on the plane. That's one of my biggest fears. Him crying and we can't do anything about it.
Also on the subject of traveling, my mom is planning a trip to Laos. Strictly to handle business and I guess I am going too. I don't know how I feel about it. I'll be leaving my boys for two weeks which I've never been away from my son for more than 5 hours. Also, I'll be with my mother. I'll bring plenty of aspirin.

Month 2

Second month of the new year, how are your resolutions going? Mine, uhhh, I think I'm still on track. I've been working out 3-4 times a week and eating healthier. I'm still stuck on the blogging, I just can't think of anything! My mind is totally blank when it comes to writing up a post.

So I leave you with this:

December Update

Yes, I know it's almost the end of January. I just found a bunch of pictures I took before Christmas and I just have to share them!

First up, I finally came around and made a yarn wreath for the front door. I was overwhelmed with the size so I kept it pretty simple.

My army of snowmen.

Letter sugar cookies I made for my birthday boy and his cousin.

After making so many sugar cookies, I realized that I don't really care for iced cookies.

Happy New Year!

A little late, yes I know. I rarely ever make new years resolutions, partly because I know I will not keep up. But since this is the new year, I'll make making new years resolution my number 1 resolution. Here's my list:

1) Make some New Year's resolutions
2) Blog more
3) Make my business one of my top priorities.
To go with this one, there are sub-categories
a) Network!
b) Crochet!! Or just come up with more ideas of what to crochet
c) Take more pictures
d) Get off my lazy a$$!
4) Exercise more, 3-4 times a week. No excuses!
5) Be a better me

I think the hardest one is exercising more, haven't really gone to the gym for a month due to me not to have the right shoes. My shoes were a half size too small and made everything hurt. Thanks to being pregnant my shoe collection has to be replaced. Good, right? Not really, I'm very picky about the way shoes look on my feet. Just wonder if your feet get bigger with every pregnancy...
Number 5 should be on everyone's list. Taking time to re-evaluate yourself is a good thing in my book. One thing I've been focusing on eliminating is my yelling. I'm a yeller and I absolutely hate it. I've noticed my mom and sister do it, is it an Asian thing? Why can't we have normal banter like civilized families? I'm cringing at just the thought of my sister screeching while we are on the phone. Really, every time we talk. I refuse to call her now.
I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year's!!
