Happy Times in 2010



Well its that time again- time for the resolutions. My list from last year was long and numbered but I look at it now and it just makes me tired. This year I have one goal "Be Happy with Life"! Life is going to happen, its going to give you happiness, sadness, anger, disappointment but guess whats that's life. My Pap-Paw always said "Roll with the Punches" and that is what I am going to do with 2010. Why stress about things that I have no control off, I am just going to take it all in and deal with things as they come at me.



I do hope that my 2o10 is filled with...


  • Laughter

  • Memories

  • Good health for my family, friends and myself

  • Socializing

  • Strength

  • Contentment

  • Happiness

  • Fun

  • Exercise

  • Organizing

  • Peace

  • Religion

  • Smiles

  • Saving

  • Positive Attitudes

2.The Keurig!
I LOVE this thing and I know I have blogged about it before(check it out) - It is great and it has really helped with finances because it stopped by Starbucks addition! It is worth every penny if you are a coffee drinker. You can use the K cups

Or your own coffee! I love it!


3. I am not even going to give you my spill about the iPhone again

Soul Mates...

Do you believe in Soul Mates? Do you think that there is that one person out there that is just for you? Do you think that there is only one person out there that completes you and makes you completely happy?


I like what Carrie Bradshaw( from Sex in the City, yes I refer to her as she is my friend)says about soul mates... "Soul mate, two little words, one big concept. A belief that someone somewhere is holding the key to your heart and your dream house. All you have to do is find them. So where is this person? And if you have someone and it didn’t work out, does that mean they weren’t your soul mates?"

With that I look at the relationships of my friends and family(dont be nervous I am only going to reference a few of you)... I have no doubt in my mind that my Granny found her soul mate in my Pap-Paw. I didnt know them obviously early in their marriage but I know that Pap-Paw was in the army and Granny had to work and I can not imagine having to take my husband( I know I dont have one but just follow me)to the base and leave him to go to war, WOW! I know they loved each other but I know they faced challenges that people my age wont ever have to face. I know that Stephanie has found her soul mate in Drew, they are best friends, he puts up with her(KIDDING...sorta), they just flow well together and she knows that he will always be there for her. I know that my friend Jayne as found her soul mate in her husband Jeremy, they mesh together perfect! I knew them before they even dated but for some reason I cant remember them not being together. My brother has definitely found his soul mate in my sister in law Maren, they are truely perfect for each other. They care for each other, share their love for life and are just happy to be together.

So like Carrie said "if you have someone and it didn’t work out, does that mean they weren’t your soul mates?". I am curious about this! I dated the same person for awhile but we were young, we were living the good life(we thought), we fought but we always laughed, we were friends before anything. Its been awhile since we broke up but he hasnt gone anywhere and honestly I havent either. Is he my soul mate? Was he my one shot of happiness? I dont know but as I try to figure everything out I dont think he was but I think I have become guarded by him. I loved him and I was hurt by him. I guess I have based everything on that and my parents are divorced and I am like "Wow, Why would I ever put myself through that?". Then I see my friends relationships AND I am confused again.

I dont know why I am even writing this but I guess I need to work out my issues because I do want to find happiness and I do want to have a family. So to give you my answer to my own question, I dont know if I believe in soul mates. I think you can find someone that makes you happy and that you want to share your life with but I think its hard and I thinks it a job. I think some people are lucky and they find someone and they work and then I think there are other people who are cautious and scared(that would be me)but still find someone.

LONG...........


Warning** I would like to say that I am not tooting my own horn here BUT I am! Just take a glance at my groceries(Yes I took pictures its ok to laugh I did) and guess what I spent? I am not going to type out my receipt but I am pretty darn proud of myself! My neighbor has introduced me to a little thing called coupons and saving money at the grocery, who would have ever thought! I love her for it!! I am obsessed with it now! I have learn to stock pile and make list and where to find coupons! I don't have to go back to the grocery(well for milk I will) for at least 2 months!!!



Oh yeah I spent $27.18 at Publix !

I have not totally abandoned my blog the last couple of days! I did post some pictures and a few videos! I hope everyone had a great Christmas and is now enjoying the worst part-the clean up! I have decided that since I am off for a few days that I would take the opportunity of the "Christmas Clean Up" to rearrange, organize and become completely unpacked! That was a good thought in theory, my house is a mess and I am sitting here watching TV! I just looked around and groaned at the mess! My Christmas stuff is all cleaned up, organized and the stuff that I am not using anymore is priced and placed in the Garage Sale box- thats all I have done in last 24 hours. All my Christmas gifts are in the spare room and thats that! Here are just a few of the pictures of some of my gifts, again its all still in my spare room-I will picture as I organize :)

Me and the Zoe just hanging out! Dont you love my outfit! LOL...

Ryan just chilling waiting on dinner! If you look closely you can Zoe peeking over the couch!


My Granny in her Hugh Hefner silky Christmas PJs!



A little Martha for Christmas



What are those polka dots peeking at me??




Why its a precious little chicken! Funny story: Julie(a fellow blogger) commented on my Christmas Decor post and told me to hop over and check out her polka dotted chicken since I love polka dots! Santa isn't the best computer user so Santa didn't see that comment and just bought this for me because she knew I would love it!!!



OOOHHH Be still my heart! Santa got me a Scout box!!! LOVE IT!!!!




Polka Dots and Vera Bradley what else do I need??



I had a very Rachel Ray Christmas! Love it!! Thanks Dad!



Proof of the spare room :(
