About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

No Resolutions, Just Dreams...

This year I did not make any resolutions.  I never keep them.  Instead, I started making a list of things that I would like to do this year, or at least some point in my life.  I dare you to make one, too.  It truly makes you think about what your hopes and dreams are...  Have fun!

   I want to take a cruise to Bermuda with Jeff and the girls.  Jeff and I went there on our honeymoon and it truly is heaven on earth.  Of course, any place would be nice...

   I want to host mystery weekends at a gorgeous bed and breakfast like this one...  

   I want to own a Golden Retriever.  The puppies are cuter than cute, but I truly want an older dog that is past the chewing stage and just wants to be petted and loved.:)

   I want to go to Maine and eat fresh lobster.  Oh my goodness!  I also want to see the lighthouses, go antiquing, enjoy the B&B's...  sigh...

   I want to travel to Ireland and take a million pictures.  I want to just sit and listen to that lovely Irish accent...
   What's on your list???

Darlene said...

I was just talking to my husband about this and he said to spend more quality time with us-to make memories for and with the kids. I am so on the same page with him, for us, we don't have wonderful memories from childhood, but want our children to have them. Oh, and I want to learn to embroider and knit or crochet.
I don't make resolutions either, I have next to no willpower.

I was thinking of hosting a pumpkin carving party too! Maybe we can do one across bloggy land and have photos put up and a poll to see who the winner would be - Beth

Jamie said...

What a fun list...Maine, Ireland...I want to go to both too :-) And that cute golden just looks like it needs a good cuddle, hehe. Check out my latest post for an alternate if you will...

I'm just drying my tears from reading about Tristan's loss of her baby and the way they treated her :-( I hope that you two have fun in Ireland ;-) I know she wanted that baby so bad...

Hi Lori
I enjoyed reading your Dream List. I will join you in Maine and Bermuda. I would love to go to those places. I would also love to come to the Pumpkin Party and the Mystery Weekend. I am not sure about the Golden Retriever. They are my favorite dogs but I am a little nervous of dogs in general! On my list is our trip to Florida where we are hoping to meet our 'special friends'!

I'd just love to come to your pumpkin party!!!!!
My dreams all came true last year when Noelle (yes, we changed her name on her birth certificate yesterday) was born healthy!

Hi Lori, I like your new blog background. I've changed mine about 3-4 times in the last 2 days! LOL! Great list! The mystery weekends at a B&B would be really nice!

I don't know if I told you or not, but Ashley LOVED her Paris bracelet! My MIL did too! I think she was impressed that it was custom and that made it extra special! :) ~hugs, Rhonda

You have so many wonderful things on your list! I hope they all come true. I have to agree with you about the golden retriever. They're such good dogs, not to mention adorable cuties! :)

It looks like you had wonderful holidays. I loved all the wonderful pictures. I haven't made any resolutions either. I don't keep them well. I like your dreams, though. So much fun.
