Valentines Day!

We all know how much I love holidays and love to decorate. Every since the creation of Pinterest I have been finding some of the coolest things to make and do. But the problem is that I pin them, and never actually do them!! So I am going to post several Valentines day things I want to do, in hopes that it will motivate me to get them done.

Cute Blocks

I learned how to make cake balls for a Bachlorette party. So I am going to try and make them for Valentines day!

I love the "Every Love Story" board as well the picture frame in the back. Anthony happens to have a PERFECT mantel for me to decorate. 

Thats all for now. Hopefully I will get them all done and will have a post to prove it!

5 for Five

I have done this link up a couple times, but have not been consisted with it. I need to be!!! So, I am starting again this week.

I am linking up with Jenn and Jessica for 5 for Five 

1) Drop off my bridesmaid dress to be altered. I am in a wedding on February 16th and my bridesmaid dress is way too big.

2) Run 3 times this week. I am semi training for a 10K. I need to be consistent on my running program.

3) Mail my brothers Birthday Card. His birthday is this Saturday. I bought him card, but I am not sure where I put it!  But I'd like to put it in the mail by Wednesday and get it to him on time.

4) Organize my bathroom closet. It is a mess right now. I  can't find anything, there is no space anymore. It needs to be cleaned out.

5) Start one of my 2 new books. Over Christmas I got several books. I forget how much I love to read. So at Target last night, I bought 2 new ones.

Wish me luck!!

Everyone always makes New Years Resolution at the beginning of a New Year, don't get me wrong I have mine but I also wanted to make a list of things I want to do in 2013. I have thought about this for a couple days, and I know that its list that will continue to grow. But as of right now, these are the things I want to do this year 

1. Pay off my current credit card debit (never a fun one)
2. Get into Yoga. I have bought a Beginners CD and have only done it a hand full of times, but I have seen a big change in my flexibility in those several times. I can actually tie my shoes without pain now! 
3. Run a 10 K
4. Run the 10 for Texas
5. Go on a Cruise (One is already scheduled for March 7-11)
6. Go to SantaWonderland during the Christmas Season 
7. Get a Job for the summer. (I get summers off from work.. lucky I know... but I get bored sometimes.) 
8. Go see a great friend in Kansas this Summer
9. Check off at least 1 state I have never been to. 

So far this is what I have. Anyone have any other ideas of stuff I can put on here? The weirder the better!!
