Lately, I have been "pinning" on pinterest a lot lately, just because. I look at all the different crafts for the home, for clothing, whatever, all the food items, the funnies, the home decor, etc. It all turns into what I would love to do or what I want to do for the home. But then I rethink it because I am like, I am not crafty, I cannot do those to look exactly like that. I remember I am sporty and not crafty. I also then see all the photos of others that have attempted similar food recipes or crafts, and failed... and I am like, oh look, that would be me!
So then I stick to the things I can accomplish without fail, the workouts, "trying" to be healthier, not exactly healthy but just healthier than I have currently been. I look at the fashion stuff, and see if i could put my current clothes selection together to make such an outfit, and think, NOPE. lol
To sum it up, Pinterest is great for a lot of different things; wedding planning, birthday's, food recipes (simiple ones for me please), etc. However, when it goes to the more difficult things I take a pass and go do crunches instead. But whoever invented the idea of Pinterest, is in my mind, a genius for all the females out there. Before pinterest, how did we come up with such ideas. I don't know how I would have planned my wedding without the help of pinterest, sorry to those who got married before Pinterest times. There are some nights I lay awake sleepless, and I am like "Oh, I can PIN!!!!"
The excitement is unreal...

I am beyond excited that in just bout 2 weeks, summer will officially be here! Summer is my favorite season of the year! I love the activities during the summer, such as picnics, boating, swimming, going to the lake, amusement parks, just to name a few. I also  love the warm air and great atmosphere by everyone! It seems everyone enjoys summer in some way or another and that is exciting! For my husband, those activities also include golfing (which I am also learning), badminton, volleyball, softball, basketball (still), tennis, and other relate-able sports. We both are defiantly summer people, which works out for the both of us, now our dog, not so much a summer dog with the exception of his "sun spot" in our backyard. The outcome of too much sun for Charlie is this:

Overheated to the max... poor guy :(

In addition to all these acitivties, my husband and I will be traveling to Costa Rica this summer with the coaches from the University for a mission trip. We are both beyond excited to be a part of this!!
I just am writing to express my love for this summer and how much fun we are having already and its not even officially summer yet!! So happy summer everyone, have fun, be safe, and take advantage of the season! :)

New Year, New Me

A couple things I have chosen to do differently in life for 2014! One of them being to actually write on my blog... haha
Another is that each month I am going to do something different to better myself health wise. I am attempting to teach myself better eating and healthy habits. So each month of the year I am either going to take something out or do something to better myself. Here is what I came up with:

January: No Cokes
February: No dessert item; this is ice cream, cakes, chocolate, candy, etc.
March: Drink only water this month
April: Eat a vegetable and a fruit every day
May: No Bread
June: No snacking; eating at breakfast, lunch, and dinner only
July: No eating anything after 8pm
August: No fast food
September: Do 100 crunches and 100 push ups everyday
October: Nothing with caffeine
November: No sugar
December: No fried food of any kind

Some months are going to be harder than others, but these will help me become healthier and thats my ultimate goal for 2014 is a Healthy Hilary!
