Smile More...and other Resolutions

So I made some resolutions for 2009 that I hope to actually keep past February or this week for that matter.  We all know how those resolutions tend to go.  But I love New Years because it always makes you feel like you have a fresh start and can do anything in the coming year.  

Here are my official New Year's Resolutions for 2009.  The first one sums up so many things and I have to give my husband credit for coming up with it.  But since he already broke it for this year, I'm stealing it.  =) 

Smile More

Finally Lose all the baby weight...and then some.  
There is nothing to motivate you to finally get in shape like being forced to "take it easy" and sit on the couch for 2 months with this friggin' boot.  Then add to that yummy holiday goodies and drinks and Jillian is officially going to be my best friend/worst enemy in the coming year.  

I got a few of her videos and come February, when the boot comes off, I'm hitting the gym as often as possible.  Until then...I'll just watch reruns of Biggest Loser start a healthy eating plan.  Do what you can.

Stop cussing
Not that I'm a big potty mouth, but I hate how a word or two can just slip out when I get so frustrated...which is more often than I like, hence resolution #1.

Play with Addison as much as possible
I can't believe how big she's getting, and I don't want to miss out.  She's so much fun right now!

We were fortunate enough to get to spend New Year's with some of our closest friends, Mark and Jacqueline at their lakehouse on Lake Limestone.  The guys went fishing and almost froze, and the girls stayed in their pajamas for 48 hours straight.  It was awesome.

We were so worn out from relaxing so much that we celebrated the New Year's on New York time and were in bed right after 11.  I love being old. 
Addison was so worn out, she slept the whole way home.
