Jan 2, 2014


It's the second day of the year and believe me when I say, I'm trying to stay optimistic. I mean, look at what I did on NYE.

Yes, that's me and the hubs. We were lucky enough to spend our NYE night in the Urgent Care waiting room. Ain't no party like an Urgent Care party, right?

Turns out the hubs has a case of bronchitis and I've been sporting a sore throat for 4 days now. But I'm keeping it positive and I'm gonna prove it with these {small}resolutions that I'm really going to try hard to keep. *fingers crossed*
