{Warning} This is a Ramble Post!

I haven't done an all out rambling post in awhile, so I thought I would do that today since a lot has transpired in the past few weeks that I either:

A. Want to put down on 'paper' (so to speak)
B. Feel you all should know
C. Just want to ramble about for the heck of it

Don't worry-There will be pictures :)


Anyway, first things first, I'm so FREAKING happy the holidays are over. Something that was created with love and warmth in mind has become something ugly and greed driven. Instead of wanting to give tokens of our appreciation and love to people, it's become something we feel obligated to do.

Don't get me wrong, I understand that people still love the holidays and have wonderful family traditions each year, which I do, too, to some extent, but in my opinion, things just have gone way to far to wear after everything is said and done, we are mentally and physically relieved the holidays are over and that's wrong.


That scroogy-ness over, I had some good laughs this holiday season. One of which was a great party one of my good friends threw. I hope to have a video up soon so you all can see the awesome time everyone had!! Here are a few pictures to tide you over in the mean time:

It was semi-formal dress, so I had fun picking out an outfit and dressing up(which I hadn't done since prom which was May of 2009).

FYI I won best dressed :)

The whole gang posing for a picture-It's a miracle we all got in this shot!

I just realized one of us was missing.

Now that the holidays are over, there are many things that I would like to do-'Real life' wise, business wise, and blog wise. It's just a matter or prioritizing.

I definitely am going to do the How to Win Series, however I'm still debating on whether I want to make it into my first fledged blog event or just keep it to a 'how to' thing.

Any suggestions?

Then there is the book that I want to start, but I will explain that in a different post.

Definitely need to focus on my jewelry and Etsy stores when I can get down the stairs!!

So much to do, so little time.

Isn't he adorable!?
I love this picture :)


Happy Wednesday Everyone!
Love and Energies.

Girl, you are looking good! Of course you won best dressed.

My suggestion is to set some concrete goals and write them down in your calendar and then do them.

You can do it! 2010 is your year, Kayla!

Love the pictures - it looks like a great time was had by all. I do know how you feel about the holidays and how they have become so commercialized. We announced a few years ago that we would like to stop exchanging gifts - and just keep it in the family (or I will send to a friend of mine, who really DOES need things). It can be so overwhelming, and so incredibly expensive. I am glad it is over too!
