so my friend ashley just blogged about her love for THE BACHELOR. every year...every single year, i promise myself that i will NOT get sucked into watching the bachelor. then i always watch the first episode and i'm hook. now that i "know" these girls, i MUST watch to see who he picks.
make fun of my all you want, but i know there are some fans out there! and you ALL have your own opinions of the girls.
well, here's what I think.
Jillian - she's my favorite. he really likes her, too. she has a great sense of style and i love that she always looks so great but doesn't look like she tried at all!
Lauren - she's cute. Reed thinks he is going to pick her!
Megan - she's a snake.
Melissa - very cute, but too immature...ahhh, she's growing on me.
Molly - i'm pretty sure this is who is going to pick. (for now)
Naomi - like her, too. i think she is honest.
Nikki - seriously, did she say, "I know I'm smart and beautiful, but sometimes smart and beautiful just isn't enough?" ugh. i just want to throw some mud on her and mess up her hair.
Shannon - she is CRAZY. she is REALLY crazy. I cannot believe she is still there.
Stephanie - i love her. she is genuine. she is sweet. she needs to get rid of all that terrible jewelry and someone needs to tell her that three rings on one hand is two too many...but hey, you can't hate a girl for her love of jewelry!
so what do you think?

Reed has been working all weekend and Smith and I have been doing a lot of nothing today. We have been jumping, singing, sitting up and still TRYING to roll over! I can't think of a better way to spend my Sunday afternoon than laughing and playing with my little man! He is so fun!

i was listening to dave yesterday on my drive from madison to starkville and just wanted to share what i heard. dave was talking about new year's resolutions and how low their success rate is. no one ever sticks to their resolutions and here is why...because they are resolutions, not goals. he then challenged me (his listeners) to set GOALS.
there are 5 things a goal must have to be a GOOD goal.
1. it must be SPECIFIC.
2. it must be MEASURABLE.
3. it must be YOURS.
4. it must have a TIME LIMIT.
5. it must be IN WRITING.
there are 7 different areas in which you should set goals.
i was so excited listening to him. i have never really set resolutions because i thought they were silly. sure, i might stop biting my nails for a few days or not eat fast food for a good month or so. setting GOALS sounds so much more important than having a resolution to me. what better time to set goals than at the beginning of a new year. i am excited about setting my goals, on my own and with reed.
so, happy new year.
go set some GOALS and who cares if you keep biting your nails!

Luckily, I have really great customers who LOVE seeing Smith at the store! My customers are very loyal and some come in a few times a week! Most of them have been shopping with me for a long time so they were so excited to find out I was expecting, checked in on me throughout my pregnancy, and adore watching Smith grow each week!

Reed started feeling bad, too and by the time all of the company was gone, we was groggy and ready for bed! By midnight Smith was in bed and we were, too! Reed and I just talked about all the wonderful (and not so wonderful) things that can happen in a year. Our family has been very blessed in 2008. I know we weren't in Time Square or at a bar or even at a party with friends, but I ended the year in the perfect way and in the perfect place...doing the one thing I love more than anything...
at home with my family...taking care of my two sweet boys!
Happy New Year!
