Too long...

It has been far too long. I have had many things on my list to do before I told myself I would blog again, however not all are (most are not) completed but I miss this little blog so here I am. I thought I would start up again by writing about this sweet lil lady that inspired me to start blogging in the first place. She has the cutest little blog in the whole wide world Dirt and Honey, a long time ago we said we would do a joint craft sale together and I hope someday we will...

Here are some of my favorites from her blog:

she is a straight up babe :)

I finally did it!

Today I finally took the leap I have been meaning to for a long time, I took my first private yoga session. I have always loved the idea of being a yogi, I always love a new way to be challenged, but I had tried classes in the past and was discouraged because I felt I could not learn the postures with the quick pace of the class. I took them at Private Yoga with Heidi, she is awesome and I highly recommend taking sessions with her if you have wanted to start doing yoga, but have been discouraged by the fast pace of other classes. Happy Tuesday!

January 6th...oh so long ago!

I am sincerely sorry I just read that I have not posted since January 6th! Goodness gracious where have I been? I have too many goodies saved and piled into my 'post on blog' folder that this is just ridiculous! I hope everyone is enjoying spring so far, I sure am enjoying the extra long means summer is a brewing! About 60 days until summer is upon us (well me that is when I get out of school :) ). I saw this cake on aestheticoutburst I just had to share.

Are you kidding? This is so precious! There are lots of goodies to come this month, I have a backlog of around 50 pictures and links to share and projects galore! I will be taking the 31 day better blog challenge that I will be sharing, and Baybeesteps will be kicking off to end its 4-5 month hiatus. Lots of good stuff, good to be back! 

Happy Friday!

Pictures I Die for...

I was browsing through the Free People blog today and found all these awesome pictures, love...

Yes please I would love a giant chalkboard wall...

Luck in my pocket, wind at my heels...

A little random but really? How awesome is this bike!

Perfect thoughts for the new year...

My mood is a little random today, I am distracted and start a small project then go off and sit for a while doing nothing, get frustrated and start a different project, walk around, feel like I need a nap but don't want to take the time. Funny day please make up your mind with what I am supposed to do with you!

My Brother...

Is an amazing photographer and I really wish he would pursue it as a career because I think he would be really successful, however I enjoy his pictures very much. This is an older sequence that he has, but it is still one of my favorites.

I love living in San Diego, I don't know that I can ever move away from the ocean, it's too perfect.

Hopes for 2011...

A new year begins with new goals, mine usually are around the same, but I am making them more specific this year to be able to judge what I actually accomplish this year. I am excited for a new year, a fresh start, a new positive look on life. Here are my 11 goals for 2011.

1. Run the Zoo 1/2 marathon in March.
2. Run the San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon in May.
3. Take a trip (I always want to but never bite the bullet and save some money to take a small trip, this is the year, I will!).
4. Read newspaper for 15 minutes a day.
5. Get Baybeesteps in a store.
6. Post at least 5 times a week (I really am going to try!).
7. Read all the books in my room (I have this really horrible habit of buying books and not finishing them or not starting them at all, so I want to read and finish all the books I have yet to.).
8. Save money.
9. Post at least one new shoe a week on Baybeesteps.
10. Smile everyday.
11. Take time each day to be thankful for everything and everyone in my life :)

We shall see, I'm sure these will change as the year progresses, but they are a good start, all things I want to work on and improve. Happy 2011, lets make this a good one!
