Jokin' Around

Sarah over at Cottage Garden Studio had a wonderful post this week with some very insightful ideas on accessing 2009 and planning the New Year's goals. Not necessarily resolutions, she uses a different approach. She said if she is honest with herself and called them hopes and goals, she was much more likely to keep them. Every year Hubby and I tie on the feed bag from Thanksgiving to Christmas, packing on about 5-10 pounds. Then AFTER New Year's Day we vow to eat healthy, count calories and be good. If it was just the 10 pounds to lose we could do it. But the bigger picture is below...

These panties were a joke gift we opened on Christmas Eve! We drew names then shopped at the Thrift Store, buying the funniest, silliest, most embarrassing gifts we could for each other. Mine was actually orange houseshoes but the panties given to daughter Stephanie needed to be modeled so I volunteered!

SON~in~law Ken and Dearly Beloved Jerry got great outfits!

This Valentine "Flasher" was a favorite!

My New Year's Resolution is to be ready for pictures like this, my goal is to never be caught with a pedicure that looks like this ever again!!

Happy New Year!
