Felíz Año Nuevo

This year has been a significant year for me. I moved halfway around the world, got married and joined the blogging community.

I'm grateful for all the rekindled friendships, sustained relationships with good friends back home and new friends I've acquired since I arrived in the States.

Being that I've never had any New Year's resolutions, I figured to start one for next year. This is an appropriate time for me to reform my habits.

1. I think girls will agree with me on this one. I will adhere to my diet.  You see, I'm trying so hard not to laugh right now since I'm thinking... 

...but I will stay true to my word this time around. If I want to have any babies in the future, I need a bangin' body sometime soon. Not for anyone else but myself. Slowly but surely.

2. I should strictly follow my list during trips to the grocery store. It may seem trivial but all these things add up in the end. I'm worse during trips to the mall so my husband has developed telepathy in the span of time we've been married.

Toni: Papi... Can we? *Jordan interrupts*
Jordan: I don't like the mall. We don't need anything right now.
Toni: But there's a huge sale. We'll save upto 80% off on... *Jordan interrupts*
Jordan: 20% out of my wallet, right?
Toni: You know what, I didn't feel like it anyway. :s

3. Put some money aside for a rainy day and a dream vacation to New York! My husband and I want to go cross country before we have children but our hopes for next year is a three day vacation to either New York or Catalina Island.

Despite the trials and tribulations, I have my alma gemela by my side who's my rock. Te amo, mi vida! All I want is a happy marriage and a stable life. Bless my family back home. I wish I could celebrate it with you. Distance isn't a detriment in relationships for genuine love can surpass that. I love you, mom! 

A massive thank you to my blogger friends!

Dhila, Mimi, Rinz, Vintage and Cake, Caro, Evey, Christina, MINAKICHU, jamie-lee, Lalaine, Ares, Laura, Curves Ahead Makeup, Sanny, The Girl with Pearl Earrings and to the new fabulous ladies such as La Cabrona, Leslie, Becky, Jocee and Fifi.

If I'm missing any names, it's because I'm writing this at 2:00am.

Enjoy the remainder of 2010 and have a prosperous New Year!

    Happy New Year!
    I hate spending money on food, && its not like I am eating out at a 5 star place, its just Starbucks, && random food places, but they sure add up, it sucks. Cuz, like, I have food at home. Boo! Goodluck with your resolutions. I already kinda broke two, && it is still the 1st day.

  42. Thanks so much for visiting!

    Happy belated new year! Those are great resolutions to have and if I had made any, it would be along the lines of sticking to a strict diet and saving money as well. It's SOOO hard to not pick up stuff that you don't really need when grocery shopping and in the end, it all adds up :(.

    Hope you'll get to go on your NY trip soon!
