can't really see how beautiful the necklace is!
Hi! I’m Shellee. I am fortunate enough to work with Mia on a daily basis (well 5 days a week). We commiserate together over the office instant messenger and have bonded in our shared opinions of all the idiosyncrasies we put up with on a daily basis. It’s a pretty comical environment. This is my first blog as well as my first swap. Mia was my Swap Buddy! She is the most awesomest person ever! How lucky can I get?!? For my New Year’s Accessory Swap I received a beautiful black scarf with silver shiny polka dots (which I happen to be wearing today), much needed lip balm (to keep my lips soft, moist and kissable), and a beautiful silver/gray beaded necklace. I love all of it. I am so thankful to have such a wonderful coworker and swap buddy! Happy New Year!
1.) Told you I was making a list of books to read! :) Again, stay tuned for that post in a few days. Hoping to read at least 30 books.
2.) Now, I already have a journal. But I have written one entry in it. I want to consistently write something, maybe not every day, but at least every week. Just a place to capture my thoughts and silly things the kids say, etc.
3.) I want to enjoy nature! I want to get off my ass and get outside and take the boys out to play and explore. Let them jump in puddles and look for bugs and all that good stuff lol. I don't want them to become a part of the couch potato/video game/TV junkie generation. They need good old-fashioned play. :)
4.) Now I know what you're thinking... "Mia, what you do mean, 'fall in love'? You're married!" And you are absolutely correct. But Hubs and I don't have a lot of time for each other and our relationship. Our priorities generally are work and kids and then maybe if we have time left over do we think about squeezing in a few minutes together after the kids are in bed. And I want to change that. I want to fall in love with him all over again. I want to do little nice things to remind him of how important he is to me, and that in the midst of the all the chaos, I'm always thinking of him. I want the butterflies!
