New Years Resolutions!

I have a couple New Year's resolutions for me personally and my little bloggy blog! I cannot believe it's almost 2011....where has 2010 gone?

For A Fashion Fixation:

1. I vow to be less intimidated about taking pictures outside of my comfort zone aka my front doorstep. I am always so embarrassed taking photos in public places but I am sure you guys are tired of looking at my front door.

2. I am gonna try and comment more on other people's blogs. I try and get to as many as I can but it's so hard working my 8-5 job, doing my blog and trying to have free time for myself. Enough complaining...I am gonna do it!

3. Have FUN!!!! Following 200 something blogs and looking at all the other style bloggers makes me jealous sometime (I want her body, her hair is awesome, I wish I could afford those clothes) but I have to remember to just.be.myself!

For me personally:

1. On the top of most NY resolution's and mine....lose weight! I look back at pictures of when hubs and I got married a little over a year ago and I can tell a difference. Oh, the joys of wedding weight!

2. Learn to balance my husband time and my friend time better. This will be a hard one because I LOVE hanging with my girls.

3. Learn to cook!!! I have got to practice, practice, practice and some day (soon) it will hopefully click.

Be safe tonight and here's to a wonderful 2011...CHEERS!!!!

Rockstar Wannabe....

Like my new rockstar shades......I got them for Christmas from myself. I wrapped them up and put a cute little card on it that said, "From:Ashley To:Ashley" okay, I didn't but it would have been funny if I did!

I have been playing catch up like CRAZY since Christmas. I take a break for 2 days and all the sudden I have like 200+ emails in my inbox and 200 blogs waiting to be read in my Google Reader. I started with all the blogs and by the time I got finished reading the older posts, all of today's post were up and ready to read. It's maddening to get behind!

I had to whip out my shades so you wouldn't see how bad my eyes are crossing from staring at the Internet all.day.long.

Black and Brown????

Black and brown are one of those color combinations that stop and make you go hmmmmm....other things that I ponder:

1. How my husband is a golf pro yet I cannot even swing a golf club

2. Having about 50 cookbooks but I STILL dislike cooking

3. Dressing up to run errands and seeing no one that you know, but when I look like hell...I see everybody

4. How I can never get up on time during the work week but always get up at like 8am on the weekends

5. Why food's that are good for you always taste so bad, yet food's that are bad for you always taste soooooo good

(I could go on and on and on...in fact-this might be a weekly thing!)

At Home...

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas!! I cannot believe it is already over...it all went by so fast. My sister woke me up at 5:48am on Christmas morning (she is 20 years old) and then I got all excited and we woke my parents and hubs up.

I am still at my parents house so I am gonna keep this short and go have some more family time. See you guys tomorrow!

FBFF-Holiday Memories

I cannot believe it's almost Christmas, my absolute favorite Target commercial sums up the holiday for me perfectly! BEST.MORNING.EVER.

This week's questions from Katy are regarding everyone's Christmas memories so make sure to check out all the other FBFF participants for some fun reading.

1. Your favorite holiday memory?

Ever since I was a little girl my mom and dad have always done a Christmas treasure hunt for my siblings and I. We wait at the top of the stairs until they let us come down to the living room where we each have individual clues that await us. We always take turns and the whole family follows each of us through a maze of rooms, more clues and a present to unwrap at each stop. Last year even hubs got to join in for our very first Christmas together!

2. Were you ever a victim of those family Christmas party photo shoots? What do you think about them now?

I cannot remember a time when my parents ever dressed us in matching holiday sweaters and Santa hats and took pictures. We always sent out Christmas cards but not with a family photo on them (thank goodness).

3. Best Christmas gift you ever gave?

Hmmm, this is a hard one! I really, really think my Grammy is gonna love the gift I got her this year but I cannot talk about it because my grandparents have Internet! I will give you a hint...she loves really nice jewelry (I take after her hehe) and I bought something from a vintage dealer!

4. Craziest/funniest family tradition:

My brother, sister and I use to always build a tent and sleep together Christmas Eve and this went on until about high school seriously!

5. Favorite type of Christmas cookie?

I don't really have a favorite type of Christmas cookie BUT I do have favorite holiday drinks...Eggnog and Boiled Custard. Every year I cannot wait until the holidays because those wonderful winter beverages start hitting the grocery shelves!

Energy Boost!!!

That song, "A Marshmallow World" will not get outta my head! I have seriously been singing it over and over- it's enough to make anyone sick of Christmas music. Now that I have created a link to the lyrics we can all sing it and go crazy.

I actually got up and got presentably today, yay for me!!! I have been in a clothing slump because as I stated yesterday I have been eating and drinking my way out of my wardrobe...this has got to stop ASAP. I dusted my ego off and gave myself a little pep talk and planned out what I was gonna wear today to avoid a morning mad scramble. I bought this leopard scarf forever ago and can you believe this is the first time I have ever worn it....I am horrible I know. My boss told me I looked very professional today(I need to give my self-esteem pep talks more often).

Holiday Burnout...

I wore this outfit a couple of weeks ago and I am just now getting around to posting it. I was doing so good taking outfit pictures and was all ahead of schedule and apparently I jinxed myself and cannot get it together and since it's Christmas week I am not gonna even try.

I cannot believe I MIGHT just be burnt out of holiday parties...it takes a lot out of a person eating and drinking and drinking and eating! The diet (like every other person on NYE) starts at the beginning of the year because I have just about grown out of all my dress pants and this presents a huge problem. I love Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's but I do not like the extra weight it brings!

2nd Annual Tacky Christmas Sweater Party

Saturday night was an event to remember at my friend's 2nd tacky sweater party. She totally outdid herself this year with yummy food, a heated outdoor tent and her outfit. She is a wonderful hostess and I cannot wait to see what she has in store for next year!

Guess what!!!!! Hubs and I won prizes for tackiest couple and best male AND best female sweater...it was awesome. If someone wants my sweater tutu dress for next year let me know, it's obviously a winner!
