I started consistently riding my exercise bike. It is helping me to lose those extra pounds. As much as I hate to admit it - exercise does work and make you feel better. Okay Lord, I get it. LOL
Looking forward to the New Year. I love fresh starts. I went through my desk at work and did a spring cleaning of sorts. Oh how nice it is.
This year my new years resolution is to "watch my tongue" Yes easier said than done sadly. I don't want anything unpleasing to the Lord to come out of my mouth. Probably could do a lot better if I gave up my drivers license. hah
I want to honor God in my words and deeds this new year. I desire to delight His heart in this way. I know it will make me a better wife, employee, daughter, friend, and certainly will improve my walk.
I will commit to pray each morning before my feet hit the floor, Lord please put a guard over my mouth this day. AMEN

I am so blessed. We had a lovely dinner at my Aunt's house. Two much food of course. hah My cousin is the cook and she does a great job.
Of course we know the best gift of all this day is JESUS.
God coming to earth. Emanual. God is with us.
P.S. hoping to be able to post more photo's soon. Having some frustrating problems with my new camara. My gosh the batteries don't last at all ? Now it won't load to my computer. I am going to buy a cardreader because they say it will save the battery. We'll see.
Oh for the days of my little throw away camara. hah

Having a relaxing Sunday. I like those. Went to church. I love each week when we light the Advent candle as Christmas grows closer. We sang all Christmas carole's this week and it was great. Did some grocery shopping and picked up a gift for my hubby. But other then that it has been relax, computer, tv and fun. I did spend extra time outside with Solomon. Living in an apartment and not having a fenced in yard I think he sometimes gets cabin fever. Poor guy. So I took him for a longer walk and sat out on our front porch steps. This is one of his favorite things. He watches the cars go bye and just eats it up. Also it is Mom's attention 100%, I'm sure that makes it even more fun. Brought him in and played a little ball with him. Being 12 1/2 years old he runs after the ball about 4 times then it is OVER. hah Now he is dead asleep in his bed. Wonder if any good movies are on Lifetime tonight? I just love some of these corney cheesey Christmas Lifetime movies. My favorite is Three Days with Kristen Davis.

We headed off to dinner. Our favorite Mexican restaurant Janita's. Just love those Faitias and the black bean soup wow! After dinner we went out to our car it was once again raining. No more snow . . . :(
After seeing the movie, I just want to count my blessings even more . . .
thank you Lord <><

I like country decorations and old tin ornaments. The sign at the top reads: COUNTRY CHRISTMAS We laugh because I live in a very busy NJ right on a highway but I decorate like I live out in the country somewhere. Hey a girl can dream right !
I love the village. After Christmas I buy one new house and a few of the people each year. I especially love the little people making snow angels on the right side.
The reindeer behind the tree on the bottom right was my grandmothers. We always had this out under the tree every Christmas. It is very, very old. I love it.

He was truly in his glory at the BBQ joint. My hubby leans more towards seafood, but he will enjoy his share of BBQ from time to time. Looking forward to heading back to NYC to see the tree once it is up and visit Rockfeller Center to watch the ice skaters. I also love going to Bryant Park they have little shops set up for Christmas and they sell crafts and all kinds of different items. Last year I got my eye glasses there. LOL I only need readers so I was able to find the strength I needed and they were PINK. My favorite color ! Just couldn't pass them up.
Looking forward to what treasures I will find this year.
Speaking of Treasures - I love this verse "Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also"

I even enjoy the darker nights. Something about coming home from work closing the shades and just snuggling in - great feeling.
Just purchased my favorite Yankee candle Macintosh. Heading this weekend to our local Plant store - have to get some colorful mums.
Even my sweet doggie Solomon seems to be in such a good mood.
He has so much energy with the cooler air. He has been running and jumping like a puppy again. Of course, being 12 he poops himself out rather quickly hah
Thank you Lord for the gift of the seasons . . . blessed FALL !

Oh my! My little doggie Solomon is very mad at me right now. He is barking and barking. He doesn't understand we can't have dinner until his chicken finishes cooking. hah How do you tell a dog to be patient?
Went to my chiropractor today. Oh what a blessing that is. Helps all those sore muscles from sitting at the desk all day. Does anyone else love the chiropractor?
Well, better run, my Solomon's chicken is almost done . . . Lord know's he doesn't want to wait a minute longer. . . :)

I haven't blogged in a really, really long time. Not really sure what I am doing. hah
I am heading to my second anniversary, can't believe these two years have just flown by. My husband is doing great and is a huge blessing. He surprised me with flowers yesterday. I just love when he does that.
My sweet doggie Solomon turned 12 this summer. He is getting a little feeble and it is to hard to see. He seems to be having a little stiffness in his hips. Now I baby him even more than before hah
I'm am going to try to stay more on top of my blog because I do really enjoy journaling.

I found a great "easy" recipe for carrot cake. I am going to "attempt" to bake one on Saturday. We are visiting some friends on Sunday and it is their favorite cake. Step by step, little by little, this new wife will conquer the kitchen !
Have a blessed day in the Lord . . .

I had a wonderful day today. Visited my Mom for her birthday.
She gave my husband a gift card of his birthday to his favorite
Italian restaurant. Aren't I blessed as I get to go too!
I have to bake a cake tonight for my churches bake sale. I enjoy baking even though I am very new at baking and cooking. I have to say it does intimidate me. God has blessed me with a husband who loves to cook.
Isn't God amazing. Takes care of everything.
Better run time for dinner . . . hum what did the hubby cook ?
