Howdy Party People,
As I sit here enjoying my Egg Salad on Multigrain from StarBee’s, I can hardly contain my excitement. My First Blog. WHOA. Like, this is really serious business. I clicked “Public” on the privacy settings for WordPress. In the great words from my dear friend Raechel, “O-M-G, Princess.”
So, let’s begin, shall we. On to why we started a blog in the first place. As new beginnings seem to be the running theme nowadays, I have three New’s Years resolutions this year. The first of which, you guessed it, is starting (and, ahem, maintaining) an everyday blog. I know, Everyday. *gulp*. I have accountability issues, so for this resolution, it’s up to you…Hold me accountable, party people! If I miss a day, put me in timeout and take away my iPod.
Second resolution – slim down the Bodonkadonk. I’m just going to throw it out there now, I have a huge one. Can I stand a Pepsi can on it? No. But it is a topic of conversation time and again, so you might be hearing about it quite often. I may even categorize that J So, my resolution is (so original) to kinda get in a bit of shape. I have found a running buddy, my friend Patrizio, who I will be running with every night when I get off work. And I’ll be grocery shopping tonight or tomorrow for healthy grubs. I’m not going crazy with it…I refuse to give up my brie and baguettes, but will only have them maybe once a week. I’m just going to play nice with veggies and get a run in everyday and see where it takes me. I’ll keep you posted. For this resolution, I have Patrizio to be accountable to. I told him to come over and dump cold water on my face if I tried to make an excuse for not running with him one day.
Third resolution – Birthday cards. I love getting handwritten birthday cards in the mail, and have made an executive decision that everyone else does, too. So, with that said, I have purchased a shiny, new 2009 planner to keep track of my family peeps’ and my friend peeps’ birthdays. My goal is to send out a card to everyone this year on their special days. Of course, being the get-in-over-my-head kinda girl that I am, I also want to make handmade cards. Probably this weekend I will take a trip to Michael’s (O-M-G, I got a $50 gift card from the boy for Christmas!) and pick up some supplies and cutesy embellishments to make cards. I think my conscious can handle holding me accountable for this one, however if I forget your birthday, feel free to send me a box of dog turds in the mail. Oh, we haven’t met you say? But you still would like me to send you a card? Of course, my new blogger friend J Leave your name and address and I would be more than happy to send you a card! Also, leave your D.O.B.!
Okay, not all of my blogs will be short novels, I promise. But ya know, it’s the first one, there is pressure from the blogger gods. Let’s face it. So for now, I am getting back to work. First day of jogging tonight! Wish me luck! Feel free to share your New Year’s resolutions if you please. First Blog Written…Check!
Party on Wayne,
