I love netflix

yes, it is true, I really love netflix.
My oldest son Van has watched every episode of Lost Tapes and Monster Quest but I have been watching a bunch of series too.
For starters, my husband and I recently finished all four seasons of Mad Men and I cannot wait till season 5 starts.
I also started watching The Walking Dead and I got to catch up on season one that I missed.

I just finished watching season one and two of The Vampire Diaries. I got caught up on season 3 and I am now anxiously awaiting the new episode next Thurs.
( I am particularly obsessed  with this one.)

 I have also started watching the first season of Being Human.

Hunger Games

well, I never thought that it sounded very interesting, but I finally gave in and decided to see what Hunger Games is all about. I started reading the book on Sunday and finished it Monday morning at 7am. Yep, I stayed up all night. It was a great book and I can't wait to read the next too. 

Have you read Hunger Games? Are you ready to see the movies?

Loft sweaters

I love these three outfits that Loft posted to facebook.

Three lovely sweaters. I love Navy blue. so pretty.
I am starting to dream of Spring, but I cannot give up winter clothes love yet.

What does your handbag say?

What does your hand bag say about you?
I just took this quiz here

here is what the quiz says about me:

You are concerned with how you appear. Projecting your high status is important to you.

You tend to be relaxed throughout the day. You are naturally at peace.

You are a high maintenance person. You feel lost outside of your normal environment.

You are open and comfortable with who you are. You don't hide anything.

You are a very creative person. Your life tends to be a whirlwind, but you always seem to pull it together.

You are an outgoing and expressive person. You always speak your mind, and you're very approachable.

You are a very unique and special person. There's no one else who is anything like you.

What's warm and cozy?

Hot chocolate with gingerbread men marshmallows.
perfect for this frigid day.

a new year

Hello everyone. I hope the new year is finding you well. I feel like the new year is starting off right. I don't like to make resolutions because we often make them unattainable and too abstract. The goals that we list for ourselves are usually too long to commit to all at once.
However, I do love the new year. I love to start fresh, wipe the slate clean. It is never to late to be who you want to be. If you want to make a change, the best way to start off the new year is with a lifestyle change. 
Well, I haven't made a life style change yet, but I did take winter quarter off of school. I realized that I have been going strong for seven quarters now without a break. I have this drive to finish, finish, finish.
However, I felt that I needed to devote more to to my family right now, more time with my kids. They are only little once and this time seems to be flying by right now. I think I need to devote a little bit more time to myself as well. 
I maybe ready to go back before spring quarter starts, but I think that this is a much needed break. 

I also intend to start posting on here more, again. If you look back through the years, some years I post a lot and others I don't. Last year was not a big year of bloging for me. Every time I think its time to shut the blog down, I look back through the years and I just don't have the heart to do it. It is like a journal of all the things I love. So look forward to more posts this year as well. I also tend on updating Ollie's blog more.

NYE '11

We enjoying spending New Years Eve at home with our family and this year was no different.
We ate pork and sauerkraut at midnight.
Tatum and I picked out some cute party hats and we watched Coldplay live on Austin City Limits.
Here are a few pictures I snapped of the kids that night:
Hope everyone had a happy and safe New Year.

heart of life

I heard this song in the car this morning while I was taking the boys to school. What a great song!
