New Blog!

Although I haven't finished copy/pasting posts from my xanga, I am ready for this new blog to take over for awhile. I plan on updating it weekly at first and then eventually, daily.

The first post at the new blog is about my mother's birthing and baby experiences. Enjoy!

Remember when I used to blog?

Like...ALL the time? Every day? geeeeez.

Wedding Update!

Just for kicks I thought I would post an update on our wedding! The chosen date is still May 13, 2011 (Friday the 13th- my fave). The color combos have changed at least 12 times, but it is official now. We are having a rainbow wedding! That way we don't have to pick just 2 or 3 colors. I am super excited for this because after looking at pictures of other rainbow weddings, I determined it is impossible to not have fun at a rainbow wedding. Since all I hope for my wedding is that it is fun (magical, really), I thought that worked out nicely.
Each member of the wedding party was assigned a color based on mainly what they chose for themselves (except the MOH & Bman HAVE to wear red :) and Eric and I will be in white with rainbow accents (1/2 of my skirt, his tie). My good friend Jennifer (who we lived with in Ft. Worth) will be making all the bridesmaids dresses, my dress, and matching vests for the guys. It will be awesome.
My good friend Liz has 3 acres about an hour away on the river that we are looking at in October. We are 90% sure that is where the ceremony and the reception will take place. We will probably rent a tent, but have talked about how we wouldn't mind if it rained- we just hope it doesn't pour!
My brother Dave is in charge of music (kind of). He will be playing in our wedding band, along with Jamie Barnett, Alex Riegelman (excellent musician O.M.G), Evan Spreen, and really any other of our talented friends who jump up on the stage and want to play a song. We have a DJ for when the band needs a break, and we have BBQ (cheapest option) catering in the works.

Overall I am pretty proud of how this is coming together. We have a little over 8 months to go until the big day, and I am no longer freaking out that it won't happen because I am not doing anything to plan it (first few months I was in complete denial that it would happen at all because I saw nothing making it happen). Once the rainbow theme set in, it has been super easy to figure everything else out. Also, at work the other day there was a huge wedding reception, and Eric and I went around finding ideas that they did that we will shamelessly steal, so that worked out too!

I have lots of non-pro-but-maybe-thinking-about-trying-to-go-pro photographers who will be milling around all that day taking pictures, so that saves me 1000's on photography for the wedding, and gives them weddingness to put in their portfolio.

I am trying to think if there is anything else we have planned (that isn't a surprise) that I would love to share with you... I think that is it for now, though. Ah! Two words. Shoes. Optional.

Wedding party isn't allowed to wear shoes unless they ABSOLUTELY despise being barefoot, but I think we will have no problem.

I am almost so excited I can't stand it- but not quite. I think that will kick in around January, when the save-the-dates go out. Holy cow! Or in March! When the actual invites go out! ahhhhHHHHhh or now! Just thinking about it all!

Best Article I Read Today:::::

So I read various articles and studies every single day. I would say a good 65-70% of my online time is devoted to it. In an effort to slowly get back into blogging (even though I want a new blog- I just haven't thought of a good name yet) I have decided to post the most interesting/informative/helpful/generally awesome study/article/etc that I come across on that given day.

Today I will share an article that helped me personally come to terms with some things that maybe I have felt ashamed about before. I immediately wanted to send it to everyone on facebook. I decided against this for now because I don't think many of the people on my facebook would take it seriously or even try to read the whole thing. I may be underestimating them, but just to be on the safe side (I don't feel like having to defend myself today) I thought I would just share with you guys :o)

It Starts in the Womb: Helping Parents Understand Infant Sexuality

There it is. It might take anywhere from 15-20 minutes for you to read it, and I would highly recommend reading the entire thing.

What I Am Doing Lately....

I am in the process of making a newrevampedsuperawesome blog, but until then, just read this and I'll disappear for awhile again :)

Lately, instead of writing, I have been reading. A lot. Reading so many things that past-me would have thought my head might explode from all the reading. Unlike past-me, however, I am actually SUPER interested in everything I have been reading about lately! Here is a rundown of how my thoughts went in the last few months...

I know I love babies and children and have been that way since I was a child myself.

I know I want the best for babies and children.

When I was pregnant I was researching different methods of labor and I quickly opted out of a scary hospital birth. Then I started learning.

Maybe I will be a sonogram technician?

Nix that- too many men come in for ball scans. Can you imagine scanning balls all day? Puke. And how would I feel if a low-risk mother came in for a sonogram every week, for no medical reason? Puke.

Maybe I will become a midwife?

Nope- Too much responsibility and schooling. Maybe later in life though, after some experience.

If only there was something I could do that all it would require is for me to study and learn on my own, but not take up every minute of my day (have to look to the future- I want kids and I want to be able to give them plenty of attention) still be able to help people (mainly women. Mainly pregnant women), and help me feel like I am part of something. Like a movement. So, I am now studying to become a Doula. This way, I do feel like I am a part of something. A movement towards better birthing practices in the United States. As long as I still live in this country, I have to strive to make it better, and helping educate women on something that the United States doesn't educate us on is how I am going to do it.

There are not many doula classes around here! I did find one starting in October in Austin though, and right now that is where I am aiming to go. In the meantime though, I have books to read, and blogs to learn from, so I will go back into my quiet corner.

Thank you Marcy and Cristina for all that you write about and teach me. There are lots of other blogs that I have been reading non-stop, but they are mainly through you two. I have been reading your blogs since I was 16 years old. That's 6 years! You two have had quite the impression on me. So for realz guys- thanks :o)

....back in the quiet corner for now...

Reading and (not) Writing....

So, confession: I don't like blogging right now. I can't get into it. My life isn't stable enough to blog yet. It will be soon. Right now, things are so sporadic....just all over the place... and blogging, although it would be good for me to get back into it, I know this, it just is taking it's place on the back burner of my life. I still read blogs, though. I love reading them. Constantly. They are much better than TV. They are more heartfelt than novels. They are constant reminders that this world is filled with other people. People with lives and problems not unlike your own. People with lives and problems so far from your own that you can't even imagine them. It's just... cool :) that's all. For now anyway....

I know I promised on Twitter an awesome proposal story blog, but instead yesterday I threw up consistently from 2:30 am- 4:30 pm. I was so weak, Eric was spoon-feeding me ice water a couple teaspoons at a time every 5-10 minutes. I made him read a blog about how much liquid I should be consuming with all the vomitting that was happening (thanks Marcy!) and he took great care of me. I lost 8 pounds and I can't really move today, but I'm about to eat for the first time in awhile! Woo! The pharmacy said the virus was going around. If you get it- the only thing that you'll be able to do medicinally is a suppository. So- there's a warning for ya. :) you guys! My ring is beautiful. I wish I could show it to you with a beautiful proposal story, but I'm blogging from my phone and would like the actual story to have more thought put in it than a cell phone blog post will allow. Plus earlier I tried posting a picture from my phone and sadly it did not work. Hopefully this post will! Goodnight all!!
So I blogged earlier and it posted. Then I blogged again and it didn't post. Now I'm trying again....
Testing....testing...1-2-3....blogging from my cell phone... Testing??

Really Looking Forward....

To this weekend. It will be so full and busy and TIRESOME and I just know I am going to get sick (knockonwood), but I am just really looking forward to it. Starting TOMORROW! YAY!

...That is all.

10 Things That Make Me Happy!

I was tagged!

1. My fiancee, who is unfailingly spectacular.

2. My friends. All of them. They are such a special part of my life.

3. The Discovery Channel, and the Discovery Health Channel. They make tv worthwhile, when I do sit down and watch it.

4. The weather over the last few days. Cold at night but sunny enough for jeans and a t-shirt during the day. Just beautiful.

5. Singing. Hearing others sing.

6. Conversations about spirituality, "why we're here", and the ever-expanding, vastness of space, and the universe.

7. The 14 states that have pulled their figurative heads out of their figurative asses, and decriminalized marijuana.

8. My iPhone. Even though it is broken. No matter how many times I restore it. It won't download apps.

9. Facebook Scrabble. Also, actual scrabble, bananagrams, & appletters

10. Letting go of the conditioning of my past, and learning to think of what's right for me, instead of what is right for anyone else.

I won't tag anyone, because I don't think I have 5 people who read my blog (that haven't already been tagged for this :), but I will say- Zach Brown and Erin should do it!

Valentines Dayyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Was yesterday. And I was so busy having a wonderful day that I didn't get to blog about it.

Let's see....yesterday....Eric and I slept in. The start to a wonderful Valentines day, of course. When we woke up, we had minor hangovers from the birthday party we went to (and didn't return home until 5am from). Minor! We were super impressed with ourselves with how minor the hangovers were. From the very minute we woke up, we were super cuddly and goofy and "happy valentines day"y. It was awesome to have a day that let us act just as ridiculous in public as we always do in private.

First we saw Wolfman. It. Was. Awesome. The reviews online gave it 2 stars, which is ridiculous! I think maybe the reviewers were thinking they were going to go see a film with some sort of plausible plotline? No way. It's a werewolf movie, plain and simple. And it was excellent. Excellent werewolf movie. Go see it soon.

Before you do though, go see the movie we saw second yesterday. Valentines Day. The movie. I wanted to see it again, right after I saw it the first time. I want to watch it right now, but it would be too anticlimatic. I want to see it every year on Valentines Day, and on no other day do I want to watch this movie. Except I could probably get away with it today. The theater for this film was full of couples being adorable and kissy and petty, and no one cared! Because it was Valentines Day! So we jumped right on that bandwagon and were cuter and better than everyone. We left the theater with big stupid smiles on our faces and held hands and skipped and laughed at ourselves.

Then we dressed up nice and went to La Bella to hear an old friend of mine play the piano. It was beautiful. We drank wine and ate desserts and really enjoyed the lavish atmosphere. Then it was off to Carrabbas for dinner, where we sat next to each other and held hands on the table and unabashedly told each other every detail of how and why we loved each other so much, and what set each other apart from every other person we've ever met. Yeah I know- I'll hold so you can vomit into the nearest trashcan. Are you back? Good.

We visited his parents after that, and then we went back home and finished Lost Season 5 and FINALLY got to see the first couple episodes of season 6!!! The perfect end to a wonderful day.

I'll never have to throw a "Fuck Valentines Day" party again, and I am perfectly happy about that! Hope you guys all had a great Valentines Day as well!!!! LOVELOVELOVELOVELOVELOVELOVELOVELOVELOVELOVE!!!!!!

Break From Blogging?

Well, the thing is, I have no computer access (except sometimes, obviously). I can read your blogs but not make my own, so I know all about what is happenin' in the lives of teh internetz, but you guys have no idea what is going on in mine! Nothing super exciting, honestly... So no great update for you. Just know that I love you all so much and one day something awesome will happen that will warrant an awesome blogpost : )

Til then, I am assisting Eric while he catches up on Lost so we can watch season 6 like all awesome, normal people!!! woooo!!!! Halfway through season 5 already :) super awesome.

Can I Just....? Just...One Post.

Eric is the best you guys. Tuesday was his birthday and I meant to write a birthday post for him but it didn't happen in case you guys haven't realized this by now. He turned 23 and even though it's not an old epic age that we can justify a huge party for (like 21, or 25!), I was so happy to celebrate his birthday with him, even if it was kind of a lame day for him... He found out for sure he didn't get the Austin job. Although I feel like it was lame because they told them originally that they were hiring from their branch only, and then they ended up hiring from many different places, which I suppose is smart, but instead of hiring 30 people from Eric's branch, they hired 3. Sucks. But ohwell. We are still trying to go to Austin. It will just be more like in March or early April.

Anyway, I don't have a lot of time to type this, because Doug wants me to make brownies, but Eric rocks my world and I love him very much, and I hope this week has been a pretty nice birthday week, considering :)

Headache Business...

It's getting very annoying. Annoying and crippling. Mainly annoying. I have to start keeping a journal to find out what is causing them.

Went to Gameworks for Eric's birthday. Everyone gave Eric their tickets for his birthday present. He got four shot glasses, The Beatles Monopoly, and a temp-engagement ring for me (30 tickets- I'm one lucky woman :) All in all it was a fun partay, as per usual.

That's all I got. Off to bury my face in alternating heat and cold.

Jamming Out....

In true nerd fashion, I have recently seen the band Man Factory at Caves in Arlington.... Think: Street Fighter concept piece. If you're like me, then that's synonymous to: Awesome.

Check out their myspace page if we're speaking the same language here....

Remember? Bad with surprises/secrets?!

a text conversation:

Eric: It has been a...crazy day. I'll tell you all about it later.

Lacey: Crazy good or crazy bad? (as I broke out in hives and stopped breathing..)

Eric: Good.

I Missed a Day of Blogging & Now I Hate Myself...

It's because it's hard to blog when your brain is trying to escape through your eyeballs.

The Headache has returned. It is there for the majority of the day, leaving for a good 2-5 hours from around 4-9. It returns and is there all night and all day. Poor Eric has to try to sleep next to me not being able to get comfortable no matter what.

Tomorrow I go see a Doctor that my mom recommended for my jaw. It hurts. It locks. It's cold outside. That makes it worse.

This is why I did not blog yesterday.

Thanks, NeilMed Sinus Rinse!

Thanks to NeilMed Sinus Relief (brought to me by Eric, who skipped his kenpo class tonight to come home and take care of me, even though I burned his dinner), I am feeling much better! If you haven't ever tried it or seen it, I highly recommend it to anyone who is getting, could be getting, has, or is prone to anything sinus-related. It's a little strange and annoying at first but once you get passed the I-feel-like-I'm-drowning-myself sensation, it will be your bff4l.

I burned grilled cheese sandwiches. My very poor pathetic attempt at dinner for Eric. I am a not-awful cook. I am not great, but I have definitely seen worse. The problem is, I am so good at cooking chicken and pot roast and tacos, that when I don't feel well and want to whip something up quick and easy (like grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup- a classic!) I totally fail. It's not that I never learned... On the contrary, I can remember making grilled cheese sandwiches standing on a chair when I was probably not more than 6 or 7 years old, with little to no supervision. I had been well taught! It's just that I (in my very old age) have forgotten how. It took me angrily throwing away the first two sandwiches before I made passable ones (passable. Not great.). Then after we ate one each and Eric finished off the tomato soup, I made blackberry pancakes to make up for it, because I can never mess those up.

That's all you get tonight, internet. A play by play on me making dinner. Brilliant and not boring at all, I know.

Today's blog is short because it hurts to look at the screen. The Headache started around 4:30 today after I saw Sherlock Holmes (awesome movie!). It has since then grown from annoying to bad to really bad to migraine to "why me oh why me"


I'm a big baby when I am sick, which sucks for Eric because I am sick kind of often...Good thing he doesn't mind babying me.

I'm going to go lay down now, and feel sorry for myself. I love you, internet.

Dude...That's Sweet.....water...

My brother Dave has been stranded in Sweetwater, TX today since 9:30 this morning. At a Wal*Mart. That's 12 hours. At Wal*Mart. In Sweetwater, TX. I feel awful for the guy. Did you know at WalMart in Sweetwater, TX, you can buy corn by the ton? Dave knows this now.
When his car broke down on his way back to school this morning, he called his parents. You know, the people that raised him. My mom wanted to go get him immediately. My dad said "give me an hour and I will tow a car to him"

Obviously that didn't work out so well. See above: 12 hours. walmart. sweetwater.

But, I will stop myself there, so I don't say anything I will want to edit out later...



Today Eric and I moved in (because Dave went back to AZ, or tried to anyway...) and right now we are enjoying a nice fire and a nice Cowboys game (go Cowboys!)... After this we will head over to our buddy Luke's house to hang out and see him for a bit... And then back home to read books and go to sleep.

.... We are old, and I love it :)

Have a rockin' Friday night, Bloggosphere!

Posting Early Today...

So that we don't have repeat of last night's woes! None of my apps are working and I cannot figure out why!! Eric says we have to basically scrub my iPhone :( so I will have to redownload all my favorite apps (I will never beat my highscord on "word warp" and now no one will ever believe it was so high. 5,8something points. I can't even get over 4k anymore!), but I suppose worse things have happened, so no big deal, honestly.

Eric has been in court for two hours today already and he just called to say it will be another couple hours. Last May, If you recall, he had some issues with the law. Issues that have not quite been resolved. Today is his third or fourth court date, and hopefully his last for awhile. He was first offered 6 years of probation, then 5, now 3. He is taking the 3 years with hopes to get off early after a year and a half for good behavior. Because Eric is a good boy. Really, he is. We did not expect this court to last for as long as it has lasted. I've been pretty worried about him for the last half hour but he called on a break saying it was going to last another couple hours because there are so many rules to go over.

I won't make this into a political blog. All I can say is- hurry Obama! You're making great strides in legalizing things that have no ACTUAL GOOD reason to be illegal, and I appreciate that... But hurry! I am impatient! It has been so ridiculous for far too long! I will write a huge post on that certain subject one day. For now, I still need to gather even MORE research (because oh man there is a lot).

Internet! Guess what! I know I already told you in my last lame post, but the period is here. In case you guys didn't know. It's here. It hurts. It's bad. It's angry. I don't know what I did to anger it, but it's angry. That's why today is a lay-in-bed-and-whimper day. At least for the time being.

That's all for now folks! A new blog is heading your way sometime this year. I am trying to think of a clever name, but all I can think of are stupid, boring, grown up names. We will probably have to go with one of those, because damn it if I am not becoming one more and more every day :o)

Secrets and Surprises....

It's not that I am bad at keeping secrets, it's that I don't have very many, so I do not understand why other people seem to keep so many. When someone tells me a secret, I immediately wonder if I were in their shoes, would that certain thing be a secret to me? The answer is usually no. So that's why I turn around and tell Eric. Or Heather. Or my neighbor. Or my entire family. Or my dog. Or all of the above. I think that secret keeping is a large contributor to lies and drama that I try (I swear I try) to stay out of. Not to say that all secrets should not be kept- because I will admit their are some valid ones... but when someone asks me "can you keep a secret?" I honestly tell them that it depends on what their secret is, because, not to sound like a bitch, but they have to have a GREAT reason for keeping it a secret, or else I will probably blow it.
I really need to be better about keeping secrets, especially my own. For instance- when I got pregnant, I should have waited to tell people. I really should have. It would have saved me a LOT of pain and sorrow and having to repeat for months and months and MONNNNTHHHS after I miscarried that I had a miscarriage. That was my bad. I told everyone I knew. It helped me at the time, I realize, because I had some supportive (and some not so supportive) people behind me. But oh man. I should not have told. I am worth than Thindy Brady.
I hate surprises. Every year of my life since I was probably 7 or 8, I have snuck out of my room a few days before Christmas, taken all my presents to my room late at night, and peeked. Every. Single. One. It's not so much that I couldn't handle not knowing (although that's definitely a contributing factor), but I am really bad at accepting surprises. I never know how to react, what to say, how to look like I love things, even when I DO love them. I have to practice. I have to slowly peel up the tape on one side, slide whatever is wrapped out, and ready myself to act surprised and happy when I get what I get at the right moment.

All of this is to say that Eric and I are getting married on October 2 of this year, and I am not supposed to tell anyone until we get my ring.

....I think I've told my entire wedding party, as well as my mother, most of my siblings, and at least three random people I've seen on the street. Now you guys know. I was going to wait and have an awesome post with pictures and the whole story of how he proposed, and maybe later on I'll do that. We plan on getting engaged in March or April, and then married on TENtwoTEN! How am I supposed to keep this a secret? He wants to surprise me for when he actually does get down on one knee and propose (even though I told him he really doesn't have to do that. No. Really.), but he wants to, so I suppose I will just have to deal with knowing that eventually and soon, Eric is going to surprise me, even though he knows I hate that :o)

Interview Tomorrow!!! And....Mom.

Not for me...Eric's Apple interview is tomorrow. He is super nervous about it, I can tell. However I know he will be superb. The training starts in February, so actually we would have less time than I thought to save money and move to Austin!!! That's okay though, because I know no matter what happens, (not to quote a great song or anything, but) every little thing is going to be all right.
I have been spending more and more time with my mother lately (as in, over the last four days...maybe a couple hours a day), and I just have to say it- no matter how insane she is- she is one hell of a lady. Sometimes her actions are outrageous, but she's very good at looking back on them (even if just moments later) and acknowledging their outrageousness, and either pointing it out, or apologizing for it. I think that no matter how awful the situation between her and my dad is, I will always be on her side, because I think it took a lot of strength to do what she did, and she deserves to be happy. Not that my dad doesn't deserve to be happy, but he needs to make himself happy and not have to rely on others for happiness. I realize what I am saying is pretty obvious and dull, but I know sometimes my mom feels awful for leaving him, and I wish that she didn't have to.
Lately her and I have grown closer, not so much as mother and daughter but as two adult women who know what they want in life just as much as they don't have a clue. It's astounding to me how very alike we are, and I feel like if I didn't have so much of her instilled in me, I wouldn't have a chance in this world.
That's all I have for now. Keep Eric in your thoughts for tomorrow! We want to move to Austin!!!!

Eric's dog, Apollo, is a bad dog. He's cute and flopsy and big and strong (all at the same time), and boy is he a bad dog. He lives here for now at Eric's parents house. He can smell Eric coming a mile away, and he barks and barks and barks no matter what Eric does. If he ignores him, he barks. If he plays with him for two hours, he barks afterwards. He loves Eric so much it's insane. Eric got him last Christmas. He is a black lab. He turned one in December. When Eric moved out of his house in April and Apollo came to live here, he was immediately made an outside dog. This makes me super sad for lots of reasons, even though he gets plenty of attention, food, water, etc. He has a nice doghouse and lots of room to run around in and toys to chew up. I am worried about moving to Austin and taking Apollo with us. I want to make him both indoor/outdoor but MAN is he a bad dog! Anyone had experience with this? Reccomend anything specific?

Thus Begins Our Journey....

Tonight, dear reader(s), I blog to you from Eric's childhood bedroom, which will be our home for the next week, until Dave goes back to school in Tucson. From here we will move back in with my mom for a couple months, and then it is to Austin we will go.

The nomadic lifestyle suits me just fine, as long as my bff the internet is there with us.


Saturday, January 2, 2010


Eric and I moved in with Callie into the Crack House in September (if you recall). Everyone advised me against this because Callie is kind of insane and unpredictable. I did it anyway because I really hate living with parents. It makes me feel like (even more of) a failure, and the opportunity presented itself. I know how much everyone loves being right- so here it is, everyone: You were right. The girl needs help.

About a week ago, around 2:45 in the morning, Callie comes home. Drunk. Stark raving mad. The living room is spotless. The trash has beer bottled in it from our little get together earlier in the evening that we didn't take out (yet). The kitchen wasn't awful. Half the sink had dirty dishes in it, which had been rinsed off, just not thrown in the dishwasher. She was pissed. She started loading the dishwasher (loudly) she broke a few dishes and a few beer bottles in the process. She ran around the house slamming doors (trying to wake us up) and screaming bloody murder about living with such pigs.

I would own up to it if my house was a mess. It wasn't. My mother has instilled clean-house syndrome in me. I love clean houses. Dirty rooms? Okay, sure. My bedroom is most likely messy. My house? No way. So this little fit was unwarranted.

Yesterday, without warning, Eric and I packed up and moved out. He has an interview at the end of next week and we will know by mid January if we are moving to Austin in March. It's a nice promotion with full benefits and a moving stipend. It will be awesome. I have full faith in him. So now we are living at his parents for a week until Dave goes back to school, then we are shackin' up with my mom until we move in March! This will allow us to save money for the house we will rent.

Callie...Needless to pissed. SO pissed. Obviously we screwed her a little (we paid for January rent so she has a month to find another roommate), but I feel justified because I do not want to be around her insanity. She literally scared me, and that is not okay. Today she has done nothing but text me all the horrible things that are on her mind. Most of them I have chosen to ignore, but I couldn't help but retaliate for a few of them. I told her that if she needs petty name-calling to make herself feel better then by all means, blow my phone up with them.

There it is in a nutshell... Callie and I won't be sisters for awhile I suppose. It is sad, but my family is falling apart anyway, and right now, focusing on myself is going to be the most important thing. I hope nothing but the best for her- but everything will continue to go south for her until she can control herself (especially when she is drinking).

Until next time...

"2010 Again and again?"

Friday, January 1, 2010


WOoooO!!! Well, we threw a successful Swanky New Year's Party last night at my moms house, because she was out of town. There were 6 or 7 people littering the house this morning (not that I saw them, I was out until 2:30) that Dave told me about. The house is a mess. There is champagne on the ceiling fans and bottles everywhere. The drumset and guitars are at least in one area from the band, and black eyed peas are crusted onto the stove. Everyone made it home safely and Dave is ready to reset and restart. 2010: Again and again and again..... We could technically have two more parties.... But Eric and I are moving today, so it would be all on Dave to plan it. So it won't happen :) Anyway- it was a wonderful New Years- one of the best I would say. Maybe even THE best. Yes. I will go so far as to say it was the best new years party I've been to. It was so super swanky it was almost too much swank to handle. I will have to post pictures later on when they start appearing on facebook. My resolution is to blog more and comment more on other peoples blogs. Eric's resolution is to stop smoking (*he's already down to one cigarette a day, if that*), and marry me.

Shaping up to be a great year already :)
