let's get this party started!

can i just tell you how FREAKIN' EXCITED i am that it's 2009?!
new year, new beginnings, new opportunities, new president... NEW CLOTHES!
i may have gone to bed at 3:30am but my body woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed at 8am sharp; and well.... what else was i gonna do while the rest of the world is still sleeping off a hangover but go on what is sure to be the first of many an etsy binge to come. i'm ringing in 2009 with a new pledge to "dress like i mean it".

these two are both from Maiden Rapture Vintage

check their blog too!


while i love new year's day, i really don't like new year's eve AT ALL. in fact, i desperately want to boycott all festivites and have a nice quiet evening at home alone but p is just the opposite. and while i know that he is an earth angel and would probably stay home with me to celebrate in peace if i **really** asked him too, i try to be as sweet as he is (IMPOSSIBLE btw) and accomodate his need to socialize by going out. i actually wore a really great party dress i thrifted and shorted to a dangerous mini length but because i was pouty and grumpy i didn't take any photos to post. sorry.  

I'm know that a lot of folks don't like resolutions but I think they are a pretty great way of setting goals and being optimistic. Envisioning great things in your future is never a bad idea if you ask me! So here are just a few of the thousands I have floating around in my head currently:

* make/sell a kick-ass yoga video
* be more expressive with my love and admiration of my amazing boyfriend
* write more letters to my grandma and nieces
* DO VOLUNTEER WORK IN MY COMMUNITY
* get back to sewing
* start an etsy store
* register, insure, and ride my gorgeous vespa!

i hope everyone's holidays were bright and that this year is THE BEST we've seen - HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I will volunteer with you! I need more puppy/old people hugs in my life vs afternoons on the couch with the Real Housewives of Atlanta/LA/NYC (couldn't you put together a great version in our city???).

my thoughts on new year's eve festivities:

why would i want to pay a LARGER cover-charge to welcome in the new year with a bunch of drunker-than-normal people i've spent the last year trying to avoid?

lucky for me, mike is even more of a shut-in than i am. we spent new year's eve at home. (yay!) we had a yummy dinner, and then he played x-box and i started a list of "100 things i want to accomplish in 2009."
i consider the evening a success :)
