Top 2 Tuesday - New Years Resolutions

I'm blogging to you today from my Houston home (parents' house). I love being here because I do nothing but veg out. I don't know why (it could be the comfy couches and full DVR list), but whenever I'm here I just can't get motivated to do anything - at all. The conjunctivitis still has me a little down, but tomorrow I think I'll try to put in my contacts, which I hope picks up my energy a bit. Glasses on my face always seems to be a recipe for non-productivity. Anywho, on to today's regularly scheduled blog programming...

Today's theme over at The Undomestic Momma's Top 2 Tuesday is a great one for my lacklustre energy level...

Top 2 New Years Resolutions
(I'm going to keep this brief, lots more to come on this topic....)

1. Make a plan. 
I really want to make a serious plan of action for my life. One big problem I have is that i have tons of ideas/thoughts/plans/dreams/sparkles swirling in my brain, but haven't the slightest clue about what to do with myself. UGH. Frustrations. I need to spend some days thinking hard about what I want to do with my little self - professionally, financially, in my relationships....ALL OF IT. This is no easy feat. My deadline for this all-encompassing life plan is end of January.

2. Learn to cook more things. 
In the last few months I've really been trying to learn how to do more in the kitchen, but I want to commit. I'm extra excited because I just got a sweet new monogrammed apron for Christmas!!! I hate my little kitchen, but I need to get over that mental block. I want to be able to just whip things up off the top of my head. Also, lets just face it, I want to be known by my friends as the one who can cook stuff. Everyone loves that person. I think I can do this, but I need to commit to spending time on this and trying new things, rather than just my tired old go-tos. Poor manfriend, he'll be the sampler.

Well, that's all for now. I really hadn't even thought of my resolutions yet, but now I have a feeling I'm going to be totally addicted to thinking about it...just what I need.


  1. Yikes, hope the conjunctivitis gets better! I am so inclined to do nothing during the holidays, too. It's the best. I will tell you that I was no domestic diva until I told myself I was going to be a good cook. Now I'm inviting my mom over for completely homemade dinners and I even cooked the majority of Thanksgiving and some of Christmas dinner. It's about trial and error. Following directions. And watching the Food Network. I swear I learned so much just from watching cooking shows and remembering later some technique or food pairing I saw before. You can do it!!

  2. I randomly browse cooking websites for ideas. Then go off that. I also receive no less than 10 recipes via email per day to make my mind focus on food. I work with all guys and bring the food to work. It disappears, good or bad (they always say good!)

  3. I learned to cook when I moved to Seattle after college, its just a lot of trying new things. My guy friends are always thrilled to be guinea pigs though and they think anything that's homecooked tastes good.

    One of my favorite blogs of two ladies with tiny kitchens has some great recipes

  4. Can't wait to try your recipes and see your new apron!

  5. hahaha I totally relate to the "domestically disabled" thing. My roommates LOVE to cook so I pretty much just piggyback off whatever they are doing, but last night I made cupcakes all by myself! (they may have been betty crocker, but it still counts right?) I just troll the blogger world for recipes and then "help" my roommates make them... but I'm definitely going to try to do more in the kitchen during 2011!


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
