I'm back!

OK, so one of my New Year's Resolutions was to post to my blog more often. Which I haven't done. But I HAVE been busy with my other resolutions and trying to complete a lot on my to-do list, so I haven't completely given up on my resolutions. :) Oh well, what are resolutions except promises we make to ourselves only to break them a month later?

Hubby and I had a fantastic weekend. On Friday night, Tony helped babysit our niece Ava (and her father, who's on crutches after a bad fall) while I went with his mom (Iris) and sister (Sammy) to a Lia Sophia jewelry party. I have never heard of this company, but I went along as long as there were other people taking me there. The jewelry was nice, but not really my style - more costumy than I like. I did find a nice blue beaded necklace that Iris insisted on purchasing for me - I have such a nice mother-in-law. She buys me sparkly things. :)

On Saturday, Tony and I went shopping for various items that we probably don't need, but bought anyways - a new side table for the living room, a mirror to hang on the former mirrored wall (the irony of it all!) and the final shelf from IKEA to complete our Room-o-books (pictures coming soon!) We then went to church with my dad, and stopped by to visit my mom, who's been sick with a sinus infection for a while. Poor mommy. :( Then we met up with one of Tony's friends from high school and his girlfriend for pizza. Our friend Dan stopped by later that night too, and we all stayed up late watching movies and drinking decaf tea. I love just staying in with friends. It feeds both my social and my frugal sides.

Sunday we spent at Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, stocking up on organic/vegan/healthy items that are probably overpriced but make me feel good about myself. We're really trying to make our lives more toxic-free and green, and I feel like we're moving in the right direction. More to come on that topic....

So, all in all, this weekend was fun, and it's hard to come back to work. I realized how much I missed spending time together as a couple, even if it is just running errands. I guess it's the little things that really matter....
