Sad news from Skinny Bitch

And I quote, "Soda is liquid Satan." Bummer.

A Skinny Bitch

Recently I read a book called Skinny Bitch, a so-called tough love guide to help you stop eating crap and start looking great. While I haven't become an instant vegetarian, like some people I know, the book did inspire me to do some more research and start making some positive changes (veggie corn dogs anyone, they're delicious!). I'm even thinking of starting another blog to chronicle my road to a healthy lifestyle. Look for a link to the new blog coming soon...I'm thinking of calling it "The Road to Skinny Bitchiness..."

We were docked here in Juneau...this plane kept landing and taking off, over and over.
My first Starbucks of the cruise in Skagway!!
Yep, that's me at Starbucks.
I almost got two...then I took a look at the prices and decided I could only afford one.
This was the iceberg in the fjord. So freakin' cool (no pun intended).
More to come!

Update on my new year's resolutions

I should have done this halfway through the year, but I was a little busy getting married. I was just scrolling through some old posts and I came upon my resolutions for 2008, so I thought I'd take a look at them and see how I'm doing:

1. I will read 50 books. My friend did it in 2007, and so I told her I'd do it with her in 2008.
Update: I haven't listed the books in awhile, but I have my recent reads written down. I'm
on 30 or so, I think. Not bad.

2. Although I will continue to curse (because I know I can't stop), I will use curse words that do not take the Lord's name in vain.
Update: Hm, forgot about this resolution.

3. I will stop (or at least drastically reduce) my caffeine consumption. People keep telling me it will help my headaches.
Update: I'm actually doing okay on this one. For awhile I was going to Starbucks twice a day
(eek, I know), and I did start drinking soda again. But, now I'm having tea or hot chocolate for
breakfast (instead of a triple latte), and I bought organic, decaf green tea.

4. I will keep in touch with my friends.
Update: doing okay!

5. I will save money every month to build up my emergency fund (yep, how exciting...).
Update: Wow, I forgot about this one, too...

6. I will get my nails done every 2-3 weeks. I'll fix a broken nail instead of ripping off the entire set. (I know this one sounds weird, but I'm horrible about nail maintenance...)
Update: You should see my nails - I've got hot pink powder. No really, it's cute! Although
I've decided to stop getting my nails done in order to start that savings account I mentioned in
number 5.

7. I will get some form of aerobic activity at least three times every week.
Update: Hm. I'm walking with my aunt and her dog, but twice a week. I'll work on it.

8. I will pay more than I owe on my bills.
Update: Not doing horrible on this one, not doing fantastic.

This just makes me smile...

It's almost as good as "Snape, Snape, Severus Snape..."

I Love Soup

Anyone have any good soup recipes? Or any recipes for that matter. Now that I'm a married lady I'm trying to become more domestic, and that means making more meals. I picture June Cleaver with a Betty Crocker cookbook...
