Random Monday

Happy Monday!
I went to sleep last night to snow covering everything and woke up to the same thing, but plows have plowed our lots. 

I don't think we got more than a couple inches, but I'm glad I didn't have to be on my way to work at 7 this morning. With my later shift I don't have to be at work until 11, so hopefully the roads are fine when I leave, because I really do not like driving in bad weather! And I'm probably not the only one. 

Anyway, I'm not really sure where this post is going, but whatevs.
I hope you all have a great Monday, a great week, and if you have bad weather, stay safe!

Oh, Weekends

Who does weekend recaps on their blog? I do, that's who.
Who also had a good weekend? I did.

Friday night Zach and I hung out with our friend Bridgette and she convinced our friend Ted to hang out too!!
We went to Logan's for dinner, then came back and played games. 
Rockstar Life, anyone?
It was a fun night and we were up well past midnight.

Saturday I spent most of the day watching my brother kick butt on the wrestling mat.
He won 3rd place for his weight class and I got a sore butt from sitting on those bleachers all day.

Sunday was a lazy day.
I did laundry, cleaned up a little around the apartment, and watched a lot of movies.
I started the Insanity workout, but I was only able to get through the fit test.

And I got some practice on one of my goals for the year.
I'm not sure what it's going to be, but it's just nice to practice my crochet skills.

Today I start my new shift at work and I'm kind of excited about it. It's later in the day, but I don't care. I get to sleep in, and since Zach is a night owl, I get to spend more time with him.

How was your weekend?

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year my charming friends!!

And happy Friday!
I hope you all had a great holiday season!
Mine was wonderful. I got to spend a lot time with both my family and Zach's family.
Our Christmas card this year. I love it!
The best "Our First Christmas" ornament this year from my mom.

As we were ringing in the new year, I was thinking about the whole year. Looking back, 2014 was probably one of the greatest years of my life. I mean, I married the love of my life and I got a new job NOT in retail!
Happy New Year from The Moores!

And what's a new year without new goals and resolutions?
I know you're probably tired of reading about everyone's resolutions, but I like sharing them with you all, so here goes!
1. Pay off debt. I don't have a set number, but the way I see it any debt paid off is great.
2. Plump up our savings. We want to buy a house in the next year or two, and my friend and I are planning a trip to Disney World in the fall.
3. Become a better me. Just like every other lady out there, I am self conscious. I'm not a size 4, I'm not tall, my hair doesn't always lay right, etc. This year I am determined to become a better me for health and personal goals, but to be a happier me, also. I've slightly got back into the gym routine, and Zach has been borrowing the Insanity DVDs for me from the library, which I plan to start on Monday.
4. Go to Disney World. Right now, my friend and I are planning to go in November. but we haven't made any concrete plans or booked anything.
5. Enjoy being a newlywed. I already enjoy being a newlywed, but I still want to enjoy it for as long as I can. We already have weekend plans for our anniversary.
6. Learn to crochet. This was something I wanted to learn a couple years ago, but I never did, so this year I'm determined. I've even found things on Pinterest to help me and I've kind of started something the other night!

What are your goals and resolutions this year?

It's Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas!

(This post was intended for Monday, but I just forgetting to hit Post!)

I am so excited for it to be December and the Christmas season!
It is my favorite time of year! 

This long 4 day weekend was amazing!
I ate way too much, as I'm sure most of you did.
But this is the only picture I took. 
I spent my time with family and my phone and camera were put away.

After dinner, Zach and I met up with our friend and her mom and I went Black Friday (or Thursday, in this case) shopping for the first time in my life. I've always been on the selling side of things, so being on the consumer side was interesting.
Waiting in line to get free t-shirts!
It was fun, and we didn't go out early enough to wait in line, except when checking out. 

Friday night was my dad's family thanksgiving and I again ate way too much.
I didn't take any pictures, but later that night I found this selfie my brother took with my phone.

The rest of the weekend was pretty lazy, except Sunday we decorated for Chistmas.
1. Our beautiful tree
2. Our first couple ornament
3. Some of my favorite ornaments, 2 of which are part of different Hallmark series
4. Our tree Angel and snowman tealight holder
5. One of our wall shelves with 2 shelves decorated
6. Holiday beanie babies
7. My Hallmark carousel and more beanie babies
8. Our stockings 

I am so excited to be able to celebrate Christmas this year with my husband!
Our first married Christmas and being in our own place!
It's going to be a great season!

New Look?

I figured it was about time for a new look. 
I would love to say Erin did this handy work, but a gorgeous blog design is not currently in the budget, so I found some cute free designs to keep my blog looking good until I can hire Erin. 

What do you think? 
I like it.
Even Zach likes it!

On another note, I'm pretty excited for this 3 day work week.
I don't think I've ever had one and gotten paid for the 2 days off without taking vacation.

And what better way to spend those two days off work then spending time with family and eating your weight in delicious food?
Zach and I have a Thanksgiving with my mom's family on Thursday, and one with my dad's family on Friday. It's going to be a fun two days.

Until next time...
