dose of laughter

Finally got to reunite with my group of girls for one of their birthday celebration. Now that we're all getting older, it's so difficult to find time out of our busy lives to get together. Seems like the only time we do ever get together is for special occasions such as birthdays....

It was nice nonetheless to reunite with my what we call each other, Super 7s. A lot of catching up, laughter and fun with good food and the Texans game to celebrate our win! wahoo! I'm not much of a football fan as I am for other sports, but just being around a group of rowdy, fun people cheering always makes it fun to watch and be around :)

H A P P Y N E W Y E A R 2 0 1 2 ! ! !

I'm already back at work the day after New Years and I am suffering from lack of sleep. I sure did take advantage of my 2 weeks off sleeping till noon almost every day. haha Now it's tough getting back into work schedule. Waking up at 5:45 am is killer for me!!

Aside from work, the new year is looking good so far. I did make New Year's resolutions for me but I made it short and manageable. (I think?)

1. Be more patient
2. Walk my dog at least 2 times a week
3. Lose 15 lbs. by Spring break

Let's hope that I stay consistent and true to my resolutions :) So how was everyone's new years? Mine was wonderful. Got to spend it with a few of my close friends. Had dinner at McCormick & Schmitz with a special baby announcement from a very close friend. Rang in the new years at a friends house with fireworks. Had my midnight kiss with the love of my life. I couldn't have asked for a better night. I'm just so thankful for everything in my life. I got a loving and healthy family with a wonderful supportive boyfriend and a group of friends I love and adore and a great job with a group of kiddos that keep my young and alive :)

Below are some pictures captured the night of New Years Eve! Enjoy!
