Party Time & Goals

First & foremost...
On this great day, a short 31 years ago...
a girl named Summer was born.
I hope it's great lady! You deserve each and every one of your wishes!
p.s. The cake in the picture is calorie free, of course. & in the boxes you'll find a La Mer watch, Loubies & like, everything at Sephora(clearly that's all in the big box).
Enjoy your day! Big ol' birthday hugs to you!

(This was my party that I told you I'd be having over here via text earlier. Go wild. Shake your groove thing, shake your groove thing! Yeah, yeah! Show 'em how to do it now!)

Go wish Summer a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Okay, now back to your regularly scheduled program...

It's coming. It'll be here before we know it! How did that happen so quickly?
January 1st. The start of a new year. A fresh start.
We all usually start that day with some ridiculous resolution that we stick to for a month & then decide to shoot to h.e.doublehockeysticks...
so this year, I've decided to make a small list of attainable goals that I'd like to reach before the years end! It's the old reliable "baby steps" method!
Hopefully that'll make the start of my year feel extra fresh, ya know?
Most are silly and simple,
but they are uniquely mine :)

Goals for this Holiday Season:
-Take more pics with The Dubs (WG)
{I think my boyfriend is seriously dreamy:)}
-Get a blinged out manicure!
{I gave myself a purple sparkly polish last night & i love it... need more sparkles in my life}
-Lose a few lbs{I've gotta lose a few b/c when crawfish are back in season I'm going to gain it all back from sodium intake! But YUM, so worth it!}
-Make as many of the gifts that I'm giving as possible!-Go ice skating!{If I saw them while ice skating, I would SO pull a Tonya Harding. OH like you wouldn't!? I haven't been ice skating in 10 years! It's time to hit some ice!}
- Approach 2 new boutiques

Buy Handmade

-Watch it "snow" on Fulton Street{Snow machines on the rooftops make the area all winter wonderlandish! In one magical moment last year, we did receive some snow here in South Louisiana last year, but I'm not holding my breath this year or anything...}
-Give to charities as often as possible{Those people ringing those bells volunteered themselves for those charities. I need to remember to smile and say hello more often & reach in my pocket for a buck.}
-Visit my GranddaddyI grew up living next door to my grandparents. I miss being able to walk outside and yell out to my granddaddy or walk next door to give him a kiss when I get home in the afternoons. I need to make more time to go see him.
-Kiss under misteltoe
{Remember? I have that super delish boyfriend up there ;)}
