Happy New Years Eve!!!

First of all I want to thank those of you who posted comments. It warmed my heart, you all are some of my favorite people! :)

It's that time of year my friends! It is time to make your New Years resolutions. Many people dread this time of year but I get excited about. It's a way to challenge yourself for the upcoming year. Some people make resolutions with zero intention of keeping them until the end. I really try to pick something that is totally do able and something that I should probably be doing anyway.

Before telling you the resolutions I'm making for 2009 there is something I should tell you. I LOVE lists. Because everything is better in a list. When Justin speaks to me in a list I understand the words coming out of his mouth. :) It keeps my mind organized. While blogging I hope to produce many lists, I happen to love the top ten list but for today I'm going to focus on 3.

New Years Resolutions for 2009

  1. Give up soft drinks
I became a heavy drinker (Dr. Pepper is my drink of choice) while working at Iron Mountain. It has become a habit that has spun out of control. My goal is to do lots of WATER and a sweet tea on with gotta have sweet tea with BBQ or while at KFC in's a have to.

2. Work out

I know this is such a typical New Years resolution, but I mean it. It is something I need to do for myself. I work across the street from a YMCA that my company pays for! My company also gives us prizes after working out. If you log 20 days, you randomly get a gift in the mail. It's like Christmas for walking. Plus EVERYONE in my office works out at this same gym, I will have fantastic support, not to mention I'll miss traffic :) I'm an idiot if I don't take advantage of this.

3. Be more efficient in the A.M.

I'm not a morning person, so what. I tend to set the alarm at 6:00 a.m. and proceed to hit snooze 5 times. Then I rush around get ready, my dog has zero time to get her life together, and mornings usually do not start well. So my plan is to set my alarm for a reasonable time, hit snooze only once and get up and get my day going right!

That's it for personal goals. I think these 3 are goals I can totally achieve and things I should already be doing. Which is all the more reason to make them happen. I hope you and your family have a fun, safe New Years and that you make and achieve your New Years Resolutions!

Let this be the first of many

The blogging world has sucked me in! I started reading my pledge sister Jennifer's blog months ago she got married then was pregnant. I was so use to seeing her everyday at school, then at least once a week at church, then NEVER! Reading her blog was a good way to watch her grow.
Then I started noticing more and more people I knew that had blogs. It is such a fun way to keep in touch with the people you care about. My sister got sucked in a few weeks back and she has been posting pictures and keeping me in the loop with the crazy life of the Ramsey's. I'm going to try and do the same with this blog.

Let me update you on what has been happening in my life. I finished my four years at Ouachita Baptist University this past summer. I finished with a double major in Mass Communication and Speech Communication.

The teacher I owe it all too, Ms. Debbie Burton

Early August I moved to North Carolina. Drastic I know! I dated Justin Haire while attending OBU, where he coached Baseball. My senior year he took a division one job in North Carolina. I followed a year later after getting a job with a minor league baseball team, I do sales for them (yes it is a year around job) and absolutely love it! I love the job and the people I work with.

This is work.......

We have gotten settled at a church here in Lillington called Crossroads that we love. We have met some awesome people through our church and feel very blessed to be at Crossroads and in North Carolina. Got a house too. It's super cute and I'll post pictures very soon.
I live a very boring life and I am okay with it. I'm going to enjoy it because I know one day I'll be running around crazy. I look at my sister running after my nephews...12 soccer games a week, practice, church, school's never ending. I'm just going to relax and walk my dog. :)

So consider yourself up to speed with me. I'll post again very soon about graduation, our Christmas travels and our New Years resolutions!
