a start to a better me

I'm finally putting my foot down and starting a journey towards a better me. 
For months now, i've been complaining and constantly thinking negative thoughts about myself. Today is the day where i stop! i'm going to take out the negatives in my life and replace them with positives. i'm going to set goals and accomplish them. no more complaining and a little more doing. i can't wait!
As for the goals part of my journey, i stumbled upon a blog about healthy living that shared a way to set goals. i think i could possibly do this. it's a really great way to accomplish goals. Read all about it here.

my best friend eden from The Minnesota Girl is doing an awesome giveaway (a shabby apple cute)!!! Make sure you mosey on over to her blog and enter!! you have until Dec. 2nd so hurry!!!

yesterday i spent the day planning my upcoming week and watching movies.  later, dannielle and i decided to go to the mall and target to see if there were any deals left over from the black friday sales.  i was able to snatch glee the complete first season and elf!!! i saved $36!! today we watched glee all day then decided to go cowboy boots shopping.  i found this antique store that sells used boots on google called texas junk company.  it's downtown houston, not hard to find...but it was kind of in a sketchy neighborhood downtown..we were a little nervous, but it turned out to be really cool.  they had TONS of boots (all used, but still..awesome!) and they were all pretty cheap! unfortunately i was unable to find ones i liked that were my size. i'll probably go there before i leave. they're only open on fridays and i only have four days i can go there...crazy!! i can't believe my time is almost up here.  it's bittersweet.  i'm so so so excited to see my friends and family, but i'm just getting comfortable here and finally meeting people! hopefully i'll be able to get a job out here, i love it. we'll see where life takes me i guess. well, i better get back to watching glee!

even though i was far away from home (and feeling a little home sick) i had a really nice thanksgiving.  A family who lives down the street from a ashley, who is also in texas doing student teaching, invited danielle, ashley and i over for thanksgiving dinner.  it was SO much fun.  it was so nice being with people and being served a fantastic thanksgiving meal.  i ate soooo much food....and drank too much wine (haha).  after dinner, we played apples to apples, which was hilarious! i haven't laughed that hard in such a long time.  i'm so thankful that i met these kind people.  it's nice to know more than three people in this giant state.
yesterday i got a package from my mom AND two birthday cards from my little brother and my grandma in the mail.  i felt like it was my birthday all over again!
i am just so thankful for every single person who is in my life.  i'm so blessed. i hope everyone had a great thanksgiving!
