Look What I Did

Are you impressed? Thanks Jen for sending the instructions on how to change my template. Once I got the hang of it, it wasn't too bad. I did spend a lot of this morning playing around with it. I'm all ready for next month and my valentine theme. But I thought it was more appropriate for a winter theme since this weekend is so cold. I think the high is going to be around 11. And it is so deceiving outside because the sun is actually shining. Hope you are all staying warm where ever you are!

Go Mitt!

Maybe Michigan isn't so bad, I was glad to see that Mitt won in the Primary yesterday. Hopefully that will help him out in SC this weekend and I think he has a good chance in Nevada as well. I guess everyone at work assumes that I would vote for him because he is a Mormon, so those that do like him make sure I know that they are voting for Mitt. Sounds good to me!

Also Deke thought it would be note worthy for me inform those that might be interested that the series that I posted about earlier Dexter, is going to be shown on CBS starting February 17th. I guess with the writers still being on strike CBS is going to run the first series. I would recommend watching if you have nothing else going on.

I'm giving in...I've been tagged

A. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
B. Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves.
C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog....

Some things that I have decided to work on for 2008:
-Be more patient with others
-Read my scriptures on a more regularly (I'm not shooting for everyday because i am trying to be realistic)
-Eat better and be more aware of the things I am eating (sounds funny but i think i kid myself sometimes on how bad something is for me, for example chinese food, it is chicken and chicken is protein right so it can't be that bad, who am i kidding)

I am really into cooking lately. My husband probably could kill me for all the stupid cooking shows I watch on the Food Network. But he must admit I have made some tasty things lately. If you don't get the Kraft magazine they send out for free I recommend going to their website and sign up to get it. I love it and I'm looking forward to my Rachael Ray magazine that should be arriving any time now (thanks Jen!!)

I go through phases where I can't read enough and then I will go months without picking up a book. I love to read but for some reason this always happens.

I love a good workout! I guess right now I am in a workout rut, I'm sick of running and lifting weights I'm look for anything new. I miss going to a good gym and being able to change things up with a step aerobics, weight or spinning class. Right now I'm resorting to my home dvd/video workout collection to switch things up a couple days a week.

I wish I was more of a history buff. Ever since I met Deke he has taught me more things about our country and world's history than I ever learned in school. It isn't that I wasn't taught history, I guess I just didn't pay enough attention.

I too like my sister Rachel, color my hair to keep the gray away. I have been doing this for years and I'm 29. Yikes, looks like I'm in for the long haul of coloring my hair. My friend Jessica and I would sit around on a Sunday afternoon and pluck each others gray hair out. It kept us busy for hours. Now I find out I should of just let them be as it is worse to pluck them. oops! But if there is one standing straight up I can't just leave it there.

It's Official...

I am getting released from nursery next Sunday. After being in there since we moved to Michigan I am ready to be done washing sippy cups every week! Looks like I am going to be just hanging out at church with nothing to do for awhile, but that is alright by me!!

So that is the biggest news of the week. We have been getting tons of rain here for the last couple of days. All the snow is melted. Today when I woke up it was already 56 degrees outside. Craziness, but I’ll take it. Warmer weather is all right by me. Derrick is starting up with his classes this week. I’m sure that will keep him busy for awhile. He gets stir crazy during his breaks when he is home by himself all day. Hopefully this week we will get back into the swing of things. Last week I was a slacker must of the week so this week I should get back to my routine. I signed up to take a Yoga class again with some friends from work. I am excited for it to start next week; I really enjoyed it last year.

Derrick and I have been watching the Showtime series Dexter on DVD. I think I am enjoying it more than he is but he is watching them with me anyways. Saturday night we watched like 5 episodes. It is really an interesting series. Then yesterday after I took my Sunday nap (Derrick has been staying up way too late so he didn’t want to take a nap in hopes he could get to bed at a descent hour) we watched the 25th Hour. It was an interesting movie. Both Derrick and I really bought into Ed Norton’s character. I would recommend the movie but beware Spike Lee directed it so it has the typical Spike Lee kind of language in the movie.

Well those are the happenings for the last couple of days. Hopefully I can be a better blogger and post more frequently then once a month!
