I got back into a steady workout routine and am fitting back into clothes I wore when we first met! Whoo hoo!
Not at my heaviest, but about 5 lbs. less on a cruise with friends in August 2011
Back at my happy weight on our 2nd anniversary trip to Jamaica in June 2012
~ Between my mom's old recipes and Pinterest I have a lot of great dishes on rotation made from scratch with fresh ingredients instead of us eating chicken nuggets or a frozen pizza.
5. Eliminate debt
~ We've made huge strides but still aren't anywhere near where we'd like to be in the debt department. Can I win the lottery please? 0:-)
~ We went ziplining in Honduras on a cruise stop in 2011
~ I went parasailing on my 1st cruise back in 2008, but then went again with H during our trip to Key West for Thanksgiving in 2011.
8. Find a good church
~ We have the best doggy! Roxy has been a part of our little family since the summer of 2009 :)
11. Eat healthier
Snorkeling on our honeymoon in Fiji
~ Unfortunately, having labyrinthitis in 2010 forced me to cut my caffeine habit. I'm now able to enjoy coffee again *YUM* but I no longer depend on it like I used to. I had to have it every morning or else I'd get a terrible headache :(
15. Finally cross the pond and go to Europe
~ We went to the Epcot Food & Wine Festival fall of 2012
~ We then got FL resident passes in the spring of 2013 and went to Magic Kingdom twice, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios. I could have easily traded in Hollywood Studios for another day at one of the other parks.
~ So far this year I have been doing great and only re-stocking my every day items.
~ I've done a cross country road trip out west and H and I have gone up the eastern seaboard a few times since moving to FL from CT.
19. Own a pair of Louboutins
~ We grew up about an hour from the city, and had been to the city many many times, but I never went to see the tree at Christmas time until we were dating and he took me to see it :)
~ We went to a game back at the old Giants stadium in 2008, but were unable to tailgate since we had to be bused in due to the construction of the new stadium. So, our first official NFL tailgate was when we went to the Buccaneers and Chiefs game in October 2012.
~ I used to suck at doing my own nails so I always went to go get them done. I starting painting them more and more and love all the different colors I've accumulated and how much money I'm saving by doing them myself :)
26. Learn how to curl my own hair
~ Aside from the occasional morning coffee and my adult beverages on the weekends, all I drink is water. Good ol' fashioned H2O!
~ After having a biopsy done at the dermatologist this past year, I got much more serious about practicing safe sun. Especially with all the tropical vacations we enjoy taking and days at the beach and/or pool now that we live in FL.
29. Learn how to drive a stick shift
