Resolutions Revisited

If the past two days are any indication of how my year is going to go, let's just say that 2014 will be a challenging one.  Not that challenging is bad; if it were easy it'd be boring. 

I've decided that this has to be the year of getting healthy- both physically and mentally.  Like I said in my last post, I need to let go of all the baggage of the past few years and move forward.  We all know "if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy," amiright??  I've got to start putting me first- as selfish as that sounds.  First off, losing some lb's.....it's gotta happen.  I'm going low-carb, y'all.  I won't lie if I say that the infamous Kim K selfie might be playing a part in this decision (although, I have no desire to carry that hurge caboose around), but really it's for my personal health as well.  My body's been through a heck of a lot in the past 4 years, it's time to get back in shape.  I, of course, know that fitness plays a huge part in getting into tip-top form, but I'm easing back into it; a few walks  around the block pushing baby girl in a stroller will have to do for now.  And I'm completely fine with that.


A quick recap over the past few weeks:
  • I never blogged about JT!  Here's a quick summary: it was an amazing show.  He sang all of his biggest hits, rocked a suit and tie, and never once brought up Brit-Brit.  At one point he was on a moving stage that literally took him out to the last row on the ground and that was the closest I could see his pretty face.  The girls and I were up in the nosebleeds, and as great of a night as it was, I've decided that I will no longer pay big dollars (I consider 100 bucks big dollars, yo) unless I'm on the floor.  I've gotten spoiled by seeing both Brit-Brit and Queen Bey, heck, even NKOTB up close.  I refuse to go back to the dark side.  "TKO" was of course hot (baaaby), "SexyBack" was ah-ma-zing, and he also crooned my fave "Until the End of Time" while tickling those ivories (so hot) which I recorded on my phone....and maybe cried.....  He closed the show with "Mirrors" which I'm not really a fan of, and he played for close to 3 hours.  All in all- great night!
  • Queen Bey's new album- OMG.  I'm obsessed.  "I've been drankin.....I've been drankin" (Drunk In Love) is probably one of my fave songs on the album.  Actually, the whole album is awesome, and if you're planning a dance party in the near future go to iTunes and download it right this minute. Bey is looking fierce (shocker, I know) in all her videos (oh yeah, the album has videos to every song), and dare I say, being very sexual?!  She talks about her sex life a lot.  Probably a bit too much. But hey, if you're Beyonce you pretty much do whatever the hell you want, obviously!  
  • My MIL surprised me with the Naked 3 palette for Christmas, and I seriously get giddy pulling it out of my makeup drawer.  What are your fave eyeshadow combos my Naked-obsessed, friends??  I've been playing around with all of the colors and I love them all.  
  • I think that my 3 month old baby love is already teething.  Bless her sweet heart, she's been trying to  cram her tiny fist into her little mouth, and today when I ran my fingers along her gums she sat completely still which never happens.  Aaron didn't get one tooth in his head until he was a year old!  Here we go......
By the way, this has been the weirdest day.  I swear it's Wednesday, but it's really Friday.  I need a normal week!

Good night!
