Family Matters

Family has always been important to me, but it seems as I get older, it's even more so.

A few months ago, my family started to meet for dinner a few Sunday nights each month. It's been really nice to have that time set aside.

It seems like family time gets lost in the shuffle in our modern era. Sometimes you have to move family time to the top of the priority list and let some other things go. The benefit you receive when you make it a priority is endless.

It's amazing when you sit down with your parents, siblings, grandparents, in-laws etc.; things you discover about them. I'm so glad to be blessed with a large family! I've learned so much from all of these people. Sometimes we may get frustrated with each other, but there's nothing like family. No matter what, when, where, how; we're always there for each other!!!

What Happens In Vegas

We took a little trip to Las Vegas! It's been a few years since we've been there. Our last trip was little shaky, missed our flight and Jeremy's wallet was stolen. Sometimes these things happen. However, this trip was a blast, no major mishaps so to say.

We had a couple of days. We packed them full of activities, but still had time to relax. Our friends were participating in a conference, so when they were free we hung out together. It was really nice to catch up with them.

We went to several shows. I think our favorite show was Le Reve at the Wynn Hotel, it was amazing!!!! It was visually one of the coolest things I've seen. We also saw the Lion King, I absolutely loved it!!! I've wanted to see it for a while, it did not disappoint. Then there was the David Copperfield Show. I'm still saying, huh.... There are things I haven't figured out.

We toured the Bodies exhibit at the Luxor. I had reservations about this, but it was really informative. I took anatomy in college, but I learned so much from this exhibit. I think everyone should see it once. We took a mini walking tour one day. We found an area on the strip, that has been recently developed. The photo is at the top of the page, it looked like something out of a science fiction movie. The food..... It was wonderful. There are so many different types of food. I love living in Russellville, but I do miss some of the ethnic foods. I had some Greek food and ethnic seafood, yum.

The trip was so much fun!!!! It was a nice way to end my Christmas break. I start school next week. This trip was a nice escape before the busy spring semester.

2011-Happy New Year's Resolutions

2011. A new year is here! I know some people have reservations about new year's resolutions. They look back mid year and are frustrated if they haven't lived up to their own expectations.

I like resolutions. I find it challenges me to be a better version of myself. Sometimes I don't meet all of my resolutions, but it helps me exam changes that I need to make.

I like to write my resolutions in my journal. It helps to keep them in front of me. This year I'm posting it, more accountability!!!!

My 2011 Resolutions:

1. Make every day count!

2. Use better time management skills.

3. Be more proactive.

4. Start training to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2012.

5. Read 6 Classic Books: The Scarlet Letter, A Brave New World, Frankenstein, Of Mice and Men, Fahrenheit 451, The Catcher in the Rye.

So hopefully when I review 2011, the resolutions will be a success!!!!!
