As if anyone really wants to know this....

This is the way cute sewing basket that Allison got me. I can't wait to start using it.
Come Sunday the Christmas decor is coming down, and I'm going to start moving my crafty/ sewing stuff into the house. Working on my game plan in my head right now!
In a continued attempt to get the smoke smell out the house, (grr stupid fire place) I made up yet another large batch of my potpourri. Not really doing the trick..since my husband brought home his left overs of our last fried fatty food night out. Yes, that is indeed one chicken fried steak. Four bites in and he was full, so now it's stinking up the fridge to haunt me every time someone opens the door to get a refill. I'm doomed to horrible smells. WHY ME GOD?!
As I mentioned, we are doing nothing for New Years Eve...we went out to eat at a Texas steak house...where I sucked down a wonderful bacon cheese burger.
I'm excited, and in the same way frightened to fail at giving up everything I love ohh so much. FOOD! Not diet food, good flavorful, junky- junk food. The nasty stuff that makes you feel all warm and cozy inside, and sometimes a little fat and yucky later.
In any case, I am proud to announce.....
that this little guy made his way into my home last night, and I'm now the proud member of a gym.
I'm going to enjoy my weekend to the fullest, and then I'll begin my attempt to be "healthier" since I refuse to set a "goal", that way I won't feel like a failure.
I'll spend the rest of my week visiting my mom, spending my husbands hard earned dollars at Canton, and I'll be back next week with pics of the cool Christmas gifts we got, (admittedly I did not take very many pics) and all the great finds I get at well as how my first meeting with the trainer goes.
Hope your wonderful year starts when the ball drops!
