And we're back..

We got back yesterday afternoon from our week and a half in Iowa.We had a great time with family and friends and an awesome Christmas. It was harder for me to get into the Christmas Spirit this year, as I found out the week before that my grandma in Sweden isn't doing good, and is getting moved to hospice. This has been hard to deal with so far away, and I was trying to get there the day after Christmas- but by then she had taken a turn for the worse over night and is on so much morphine she is pretty much asleep 24 hrs a day. Very sad.

I figured I'd join up with Taylor's Top Two today to get back into blogging after my time off so here it is.

Top Two New Years Resolutions

1. Lose the last 5 lbs. I've been wanting to lose for Ever. We want to have another baby in the nearish future- but before getting pregnant I'd love to lose those last few lbs. To do this I plan on  trying to cut out all pop--eeeek!, drink a lot more water and do 20-30 min a day on my elliptical I bought as a wedding present to myself in November.

2. Get and stay more organized. I'm not a very organized person by nature, but I WANT to be, so I plan on spending some time at the Container Store very soon and figuring out a better system, especially for Jasper's millions of toys.

What are some of your new years resolutions?


  1. Great list! I always feel better when I am organized. Best wishes to you and your family in the New Year!

  2. I put organization too!! We can do this, girl!

    Have a great day,

  3. I'm an Iowa girl getting organized as well. I went to OrganizedLiving.com and got freedomRail. It's the best! Put it in every room in my house. It's on sale right now too.
