What's all this about Mary Kay???

Don't worry, I'm not starting to sell Mary Kay, but my friend Anna is! And she has been so great and offered to donate a percentage of sales I bring to her toward my next Guatemala trip! So back in Dec. I had a Christmas Mary Kay party, and have had a couple times of spending time with the girls and doing makeovers. If you are interested in purchasing any Mary Kay products from Anna you can check out her website and just mention my name and i'll still get a portion of the money for Guatemala! Anytime you or any friends want a makeover Anna would be more than happy to do it for you!

So, I guess there are much colder places in the world than Chicago . . . but my apartment is soooooooo cold . . . there is frost covering the inside of one of the windows, artic air blowing in around the other windows, and not enough blankets to cover up with. I guess it just makes me all the more grateful for the sunshine and warm weather that will soon be coming. Until then there will be plastic and blankets and towels and whatever else we can find to keep out the cold and try to maintain some heat in this place. Another problem that comes along with the freezing temperatures and snow is a very, very, very dirty car, but no way to wash it! Don't get me wrong, the snow is pretty, but when it's white, not black and not dried onto my car! The fun thing is that I do have a beautiful flower that is growing and withstanding the frigid temperatures, it's a bright red amarylis (hopefully I spelled it right) and brings a little cheer into the apartment. I quess that i'm just getting a bit of cabin fever . . . spring will be here soon and I can't wait!!!!!!!!

Ready or not . . . here it comes . . .

Wow, 2008 is here! I can't believe it, but what a great year 2007 was. A co-worker has been asking many people about their new years resolutions, actually most people don't have any. And that's fine, but I think that it is important to reflect and set goals. We all have things that we need to change or improve upon, well, I know I do. The challenge is spending the time and energy to make the changes and improvements. But I do think that it's something important that we should all make at least an attempt at leaving behind something from the past year and looking forward to changing something in the new year! If you want to ask me about mine, you are welcome to, just know that I'll ask you about yours!!! Happy New Years!!!
