Gilmore Girls? Well not yet, but hopefully!

Tonight my daughter and I had what I hope to be the first of many cool moments.  My daughter and I were both sick this week which really put a damper on my ambitions about getting more active on my blog.  Tonight we were all planning on going to the Sam Houston Race Park to have some fun and watch the races.  Well since my daughter was really ill last night, I really needed to keep her in tonight. 

My hubby went ahead and took the boys and Sammie and I stayed home.  We shared some breadsticks for dinner...i know...but we really have had some upset stomachs, and sat down to watch a movie.  I stumbled on the movie Only You.  Ever see it?  Well it is a chick flick to the max and I loved every minute of it.  Nothing better than Marissa Tomei, Bonnie Hunt and Robert Downey Jr.   Samantha actually seemed to enjoy it as well.

We really had a nice quiet evening watching chick flicks and just lounging on the couch.  It just reminded me of my all time favorite tv show Gilmore Girls.  I want to have a relationship like Lorelai and Rory, with Sammie.  Well besides the absentee dad and well teenage pregnancy.  I love movies, and really hope that as she gets older she will love them too and we will be able to pop popcorn and watch them together.   She is sleeping now, but it was just such a great moment that I hope repeats itself randomly through out the remainder of our lives.

New year, new me!...well hopefully!

It has been some time since I had posted because I was trying to use my free time to organize my house.  I am failing at it miserably, but it is one of my resolutions so I am going to keep at it!  So they say the first way to keep a resolution is to write them down.  So rather than just put them on a post it, I figured that I would post it on my blog.  I really have two big ones this year.

I have been gaining off and on for the past ten years, but after I had a baby well it was a whole new ballgame!

The other is to organize this house.  Organization has never been my strong suit but I am trying. 

Also in the spirit of the attempted "New Me" I will be trying to do some giveaways that fall under those categories.  My first one will be from Healthy Choice!  Which I love!!!!

I will be going to the grocery store to pick up some of their delicious new meals for my lunch.  Hopefully by planning a lunch and having it handy, well I will be able to stay on track!
If you happen to have any organization tips, please post them!  LOL  I can use all of the help that I can get.
