Girls Night in!

So the first girls night of the new year and boy did we decide to start with a bang! (not really but that’s how I’m telling it.) We watched one of the most amazing romantic comedy movies EVER and kept to our resolution of losing weight by eating baked salmon, tomatoes and soy beans. (so good) Sadly no alcohol was consumed on this night.

In case you don’t have the faintest idea what the most amazing romantic comedy movie is, I will tell you. WHEN HARRY MET SALLY!

This is one of my favorite movies, If we had time and I was asked to watch it again on the same day a minute after we started watching it I would have said “Load it up!” Most of the discussion was focused on Meg Ryan and how cute she was but how horrid her clothing was in this movie. Harry was right she really needed to wear more Skirts. We were also pleasantly surprised at how adorable Billy Crystal looked. We watched all the classic scenes with relish and laughed at all the real couples who explained how they met. (Awwww…) This movie has it all even stuff I believe men would enjoy, it stimulates conversation and laughs, and would make a great movie for those date nights you just want to snuggle (Shut up you do like snuggling) together on the couch. 

The baked Salmon I made was actually quite good (surprisingly so) and I enjoyed every minute of chowing down, wishing I could have seconds by not letting myself. 

No theme for this one folks seems like the holidays have pretty much drained my wardrobe of anything, but atlas our usually routine of dressing up and NOT going out will happen again.

Overall The movie and food was amazing, the alcohol was missed but not needed and the clothing will be back next month. 

Diet Day 1

So for one of my New Year’s Resolutions was that I was going to lose weight in order to do this I constructed at diet plan. For the first three days of my diet I can only eat/drink juice that I have juiced myself. So far day one is a success although I am very hungry, my mind is a little muddled and my eyelids feel like lead. I predict that today is and will be the hardest day to get over, once I past today I think the next two days should be easier (not easy, easier).

I must admit I am craving every solid food I set my eyes on. I saw a tomato and thought ‘Oh god I really should eat that tomato’ I saw a box of crackers and thought ‘Those crackers would be so good’. I saw Tesla eating her dog food and wondered if I would enjoy it.

Doing this will be hard but I am doing it to myself and it will get easier as I go along.

Music Monday: Start Wearing Purple By Gogol Bordello

 

This is by far one of my favorite bands EVER!. I can’t even remember when I started to listen to them.

Unfortunately I have not been able to see them live, but I will one day and It will be amazing!

I picked this song because it’s ONE of my favorites and just so fun to listen and dance to.

So I suggest that if you listen to this song and like it, immediately pick up the album Voi-La Intruder you will not be sorry.

 

It’s a new year and I’m still alive!

So I am still here and no I have not forgotten about you. The holidays just get busy for me as I spend all my time worrying about things to buy people then get disappointed when I receive my gift and notice that this person could give two shits about me, but hey its the lack of thought that counts.

Okay I will not complain about the holidays, no I refuse. It is a new year a time of change and what not.)

So if you guys didn’t know I am getting married, and I finally have decided to put effort into planning my wedding (I’ve been engaged since August). I think I’ve realized that it won’t plan itself and If I want to have a kick ass reception then I should actually start putting thought into this. So my wedding has become my top priority (not including basic living and health I really can’t stop that.) I think I’m getting a bit excited about it too.

The other thing I’m really excited about is I finally get to start using my new 2013 planner. I know I’m a loser when new stationary gets me to do a happy dance, but none the less it does.

So I guess this is the point of my new year post when I write my New Year’s Resolutions because yes I am just like those people and yes I do at least try to keep them. Most of them are the usually but I hope at least a few are a bit unique.

1.) This one of course is at the top of everyone’s list Lose Weight and I am not going on one of those stupid fad diets, I am actually going to create one myself so far I have the first month planned and I will start planning next month as well and hey if it works maybe I’ll share my secret. I hope by doing this I’ll lose 20-30 pounds hopefully by my wedding date!

2.) This one I do every year and I get slightly better at it but not enough to completely satisfy me. Think before speaking. I’m getting a bit better at first impressions but I slip up every once in a while (‘I just licked my fingers’ I tell someone as I am shaking their hands’).

3.) This one is on a lot of people list and I for one am happy if people actually did this Read more.

4.)Write more I really need to do this more, like a lot more! I need to write more on my blogs, for THE PROJECT, and just personal because this is what keeps me sane.

I know there are more but to be honest I really can’t think of them.

So Happy belate holidays and I hope 2013 becomes the year that everyone wants it to be!
