New Blog + Prizes = Amazing :D

I've made a decision. It's a big one, I know. And I'm a bit nervous about it. What if I lose my readers? What if it's NOT better?

I'm moving my blog. Yep, over to I didn't know when I was starting a blog that I should look into different blog sites first. I just boldly went where it seemed everyone had gone before me. Blogspot. Now it seems as though this isn't the place for me, it was a good start, a good intro, but now it's time to move onwards. To bigger better things. (Don't kill me Blogspot workers!).

And to make it official, I'm having a contest! Check out the new blog! I can't wait to pick the winner next week, so leave your comment and cross your fingers!

I'll be checking into this blog still now and then, but please change your links ect to my new blog since that will be my base from now on! YAY!

And please don't leave me! I really have appreciated all my readers here, your comments, encouragement, advice and smiles. So please follow me over to Wordpress!

Starting Fresh

It's been a few days since I've taken the time to write a good entry here! Shame shame! But I really had a great relaxing time and I feel refreshed and ready to get back to "real life". I definitely don't regret taking those extra days off work or lazing around watching Grey's! I feel like my normal self again!

Lately I've been wanting to just live to grab the bull by the horns, to run in the wheat, to live life fully. I've always wanted to learn Karate, for some reason it's been a life goal for me...I'm not sure when it started or why even, but it's there.

Last week I visited a Karate class with my sister. Our friends were trying to set her up with one of the black belt dudes didn't work, but at least I had an excuse to tag along and see what the class was like. It was intimidating. A lot of shouting "os" whenever the teacher said anything, running laps, push-ups, huffing and puffing, sparring, hissing through their teeth...I just watched. And I loved what I saw! It looks scary, tough and sweaty...but in a super good and challenging way.

I need an updated work out. I go to the gym, jog for half hour, do weights (holy crap did those lunges ever hurt the other day!!) and it's all fine and dandy, but I need something to spice it all up. So I'm going to join Karate. As soon as I cancel my gym membership. I can't afford them both. Maybe I'll post my first picture of myself on here in my Karate outfit. My husband says it's not an "outfit", that that's a girly word, but really...I'm not sure what the real word for it is.

I had made it a goal to become a black belt by the time I was 30...but since I haven't started yet and I'm 24...I'm not sure that it's going to happen.

Anyone else ever tried a martial art? What was your experience like?

Long Weekend

Sorry it's been a few days since I've posted, guys! I am still here, live and kicking, but since I'm in the middle of jobs I decided to take a few days off and relax! Yesterday I suntanned, did yard work, read my book and watched Greys Anatomy. Today I'm off for lunch with the girls, reading some more (hopefully I'll finish my book!) and of course more Greys. I'd also like to dig up more of the garden while I have this free time.

I seriously love staying home like this! I wish I didn't have to work, that I could stay at home and keep house and garden...but unfortunately, that's not possible yet. Maybe soon.

In the mean time, I'm posting this new Leona Lewis movie for you to enjoy...I get goosebumps everytime I watch it!

Gotta Have a Sheltie!

My husbands going to hate me, but I was looking for a Sheltie again...We just got Cobie, our German Shepherd seven months ago and even though I love her to bits, I've always wanted a Sheltie. I'd especially like to adopt one from a shelter, I love the thought of giving an "unloved" pet a home and making them see they are loved and special. I'm such a sap, but it's totally true. When we had our other dog, we'd foster dogs from the SPCA in order for them to get out of their little pens. I loved taking them home and watching them play and giving them cuddles.

I found this site for adopting pets that I've become addicted to...and I came across a Sheltie in our general area that I'd love to take under my wing. I especially love her color and her cute little face. Some people don't like the sheltie's faces, their slim nose and beady little eyes. But I love it!

Guest Blog

Damien was kind enough to offer several guest blog spots on his blog, I guess I made the cut 'cause he posted my entry (:

Today is my last day at this job! I gave them several days noticed, which I thought was quit nice considering how I've been treated. I can't wait to have a few days off and be able to regroup and relax. Hubby is trying to take the day off tomorrow too so that we can spend time together, go shopping, sleep in, and just enjoy a long weekend together.

I have several job offers, so I'm not worried about that at all. Which is nice. Really takes the stress off even more!

Speaking of inspiration (that's what my guest blog entry was about), I checked out some faves on another blog and here's what I found! I'm totally into color lately, I think it's because I need it...spring still isn't here although the grass is JUST starting to turn green...but I need color to make me feel alive lately!

Just a few of the inspiring sites I've visited to give me my daily dose of color and drive!

Blog #2!

Don't forget to check out my other blog, the "tester blog"! It's a little more personal, but that might change as the days and weeks roll on!

I'd love to hear your comments on the posts, the set up of the blog and what you think of that site compared to this! I'm just fiddling around with it right now, but in the future, I might end up perma-blogging over there...we'll have to see!

Let me know what you think!
