2011 Is going to be a GREAT year!

So much going on right now! Where do I even start? Well, for starters let me apologize for being so neglectful to my blog lately... let's just say I've had a lot on my mind. But I'm back and better than ever.

The new year started off with me being sick. What's new, right? ;) I got a terrible head cold the first week of January that knocked me down quite hard. A little TLC and my trusty Neti Pot rinse did the trick. Never heard of Neti Pot? It's very, very awkward, but it WORKS like a charm! If you have sinus pressure so bad it hurts to just touch your face, you NEED to try this! See pic ---->

After week two I started to feel more like my bubbly self. Yay!

Rich started his EMT-P class, so now I barely see him. If he's not at work, he's in class, volunteering at a local EMS station, at a clinical shift, or studying. It will be this way until mid-September. I guess I've gotten used to it. Let's just say that there are alot of lonely nights. But on the flip side, I get ALOT of piece an quiet at least 2 nights a week! Nah, I'm kidding... I miss him terribly when he's not home. It'll all be worth it once he's done. He's loving it and for that I'm happy. He's finally doing something he truly enjoys. I need to get a hobby though - to keep me occupied for the next several months! Any ideas?

We're moving! Well, not far... just further north into the city. We're pretty excited! After several weeks of home searching we FINALLY found a great house, and to top it off, it's just a couple miles from my office! Score! Our new house has a yard! A real yard! Murphy and Harley are going to LOVE it! It's .33 acres and totally fenced, a far cry from our current .15 acre. I have to start packing! We move in less than 5 weeks! Oh boy...

What else?

I'm thinking of coloring my hair blond, again. I've been a blond twice before and loved it, but didn't stay blond long enough. As soon as my roots starting showing (I'm a natural brunette) I colored it back. I have no patience I guess. But I'm thinking before Spring I will try it again. What do you think? See the below pic of me as a brunette and a blond... what's your vote?

I'm really optimistic that 2011 is going to be a great year. Anything would be better than LAST year. There are so many new and exciting things coming my way, and I couldn't be more excited. I'm all for taking in the moment and living each and every single day to the fullest. What are your plans for this year?

I'll try to not be so much of a stranger!

First "Official" Still of Breaking Dawn: Part I!!!

OK, so I'm a little late in seeing this, but nonetheless... OMG! I was beyond thrilled that THIS was the first officially released still! My "obsession" for all things Twilight has toned town slightly over the last while, however, I can assure you, as the next few months progress and more and more images are released, I'll be a fangirl ALL OVER AGAIN! What do you think of this:

Supposedly the above pic will be in the upcoming edition of Entertainment Weekly, and guess who has an ongoing subscription?! You guessed it! I'll be salivating all the way to the mailbox!

Are you excited about Breaking Dawn: Part I?

American Idol - Season 10!

Is anyone else as excited as I am for American Idol Season 10?! I ♥ American Idol and I personally can NOT wait to see it "redesigned!" I've heard there are more changes to the show than just the judges switcheroo... excitement! Not too much longer!


Homeless but NOT Talentless

All I have to say is... WOW!


Somehow I don't see this guy being on the streets much longer. NEVER judge a book from its cover. Everyone deserves a second chance.
