Happy New Year!

Oy Vey am I bad at blogging! I can't seem to consistently update my blog to save my life!  I have several blogs that I frequent on a regular basis that I love. I aspire to be like those blogs...and yet it never seems to turn out on my end.  I'd like to try and give my blog a little update...reformat, rethink, redo (reduce, reuse, recycle just popped into my head!)

I have lots of thoughts and ideas, I've just never been able to really put them down on paper - or in this case, on webpage.  I'll try and be better in 2014!

Today I will just give a brief update of what's been happening in Casa G:

  • Holidays! Wow, our Holiday season has been a blur of traveling, cooking, eating, and chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate.  It's been fun, but I'm also happy to get back to real life and routine.
  • Job Search: I've been on the hunt for a part time job.  I've interviewed at two places and been turned down for one job already.  This upcoming week I'll hear back from job opportunity number 2.  I have to say that it turns out I don't take rejection very well! Not getting hired somewhere after having two great job interviews was a bit of a shock to my system.  But, such is life!
  • Weight Loss: Last year I managed to lose almost 15 pounds. I'm really proud of that, but I'm still not sure exactly how I managed to accomplish that task.  I'm thinking it was smaller portion sizes/trying to be more active?  The last 2 weeks I've put probably 3 of those pounds back from all of the chocolate.  I need to stop but it's just so damn good!
  • Trying to bring my crafty back:  In an effort to get more organized I decided I needed a menu board to plan my dinners for the week (thus making grocery shopping an easier, more affordable and efficient task.  I didn't want to pay 50 bucks for one off of Etsy, so I decided to get a little crafty.  Here's a picture of a darling menu board that I made this past week:

     I also spent the months August through December crocheting a baby blanket for my cousin's baby.  It's so beyond cute that you won't believe it!

  • Fighting the never ending battle of laundry, dishes, and housecleaning.  If anybody has any tactics for success in this war, let me know!
I don't think that I have many readers at all, but if you're one of them have a fantastic and magical New Year!

*Edit - I've also been caught up in this TV show called Chuck.  It's dragged me in and I can't escape! Help! Except, don't help - because this show is awesome!
