Hawaii 1-1

found here

After thinking about all the big life events coming up I decided I needed a reward. Something BIG. I deserve it after all. But, I wasn't sure what, when, or who with. Some of my closest friends happen to be graduating from med school (I'd consider that a big life event) so a reward was in order for them too. I'd talked to a few about a trip a long time ago, but wasn't committed and kind of forgot until sort of recently. Well, several text messages later, emails, a few phone calls, LOTS and LOTS of research on the part of Megan (she's awesome like that) and it looks like we're going to the Big Island! I'm an easy sell -- Hawaii with great company?!? Yes, please. I bought my plane ticket and sent a check for our condo so there's no turning back now. I couldn't be more excited.

In preparation, Operation Hawaii 1-1 has officially commenced. Mostly due to the fact that I have to be in shorts and a swim suit for the first time in heaven knows how long. I hired a trainer -- who makes my legs scream in pain -- and started my healthy eating plan. I'm committed. Here's hoping I'll be ready in no time.

White Stripes

Is it just me or are these skirts almost perfect? I'd most like the navy and red, but seriously love them all. Find them here.

2011 edition

I was ready to say goodbye to 2010. It wasn't a bad year, I just craved something new. I kept (and continue) telling myself 2011 is going to be a good one. When the clock struck midnight on the 31st, I toasted (with the last Diet Mountain I've had in 12 days) to my life's next chapter.

This year, I'm resolving to dream big dreams, finish things I've started, and love like I've never loved before. In the process, I'm going to be ridiculously happy.
