Happy New Year

So, its taken me a few days to get my bearings straight... I can't believe it is 2010. OMG. I'm sure we've heard it over and over again, but fo' serious... TIME FLIES!

Ok, so to keep me accountable... I've got to tell y'all what my NY resolutions are, right?

1. My attitude: I get angry really easily. I'm highly irritable and I need to focus on taking a breathe before I freak out...
2. My health: I'm doing my best to drop another 15 pounds before the big day - but basically incorporating cardio, trying to run, doing the 100 push up challenge and trying to get my Shred on...  (need lots of encouragement for this one)

Those are my main two long term resolutions.

Another gray cloud which has been hovering over my attitude of late is my wedding and the fact that my father will not be there. I've not mentioned it... while I have created drafts of post but never published them... b/c I guess once i click "publish" it makes the issues that much more real... But i do want to talk them through and am hoping that I can do so before the wedding... and this is yet a short term resolution I have... to talk this out... talk it through. Come to terms with and find closure on this issue.

2 months out and if there was gonna be a change, it would have happened and its important that I let this go before the big day... so I hope that when i am able to talk about this on my blog, that I will have the support and encouragement of you guys - b/c it means so much to me...

**Deep Breathe**

Life is good. It can always be better. It can always be worse... but my satisfaction comes in knowing that I'm in control of my own fate... right? RIGHT!

Ok... So Happy New Year Y'all... 2010 is gonna be great!


  1. It will definitely be a great one! We are all here from you when you're ready!

  2. Happy New Year! And you definitely have the support from all of us in blog land! :-)

  3. Happy New Year and congratulations on being on the Top 100 wedding blogger list!

  4. Happy New Year to you too AmyJean! Hoping that it will be a wonderful year for you!

  5. Happy New Year! And best of luck with the final wedding planning before the big day!!

  6. Happy New Year! My mother isn't coming to my wedding either, so I hear you on the gray cloud. Your day will be magnificent regardless!

  7. So sorry to hear about your father and the unfortunate issues you've been dealing with. Weddings always seem to bring things up that may not be pleasant to deal with. But know that you have lots of support and with a good perspective (focus on the happy moments of the day and the marriage) you will get through and hopefully not let these things distract you or bring you down on one of the most exciting moments of your life. :) Hang in there!
