My How Times Flies

1 Dec

Today is December 1st…wow!  In 24 days we will be celebrating Christmas, and in 30 days New Years Eve.  This year has been a whirlwind of events, travel, friends, family, and blessings.  I’m sad to see this  so quickly, but I’m definitely looking forward to 2012.  In a few weeks Dr. B and I will sit down and review our goals that we made during the beginning of the year.  We knocked a few out of the park, and others we fell somewhat short.  Which I can live with because the real lesson comes from the actual planning, and the process of striving towards the goal.

One milestone I’m happy to say that I’ve completed is starting my business, NataMari Designs.  I’ve been busy working on my designs, adding content to my new blog, and getting my online store setup.  It’s required tons of hard work but I love every minute of it.  So please when you get a chance check out my new blog and shop and tell me what you think!

Billy Blanks 24/7

11 Nov

Ya’ll know I am a Billy Blanks follower. I’m now the proud owner of about 15 Billy Blanks workout DVDs since YouTube deleted several of the uploaded videos because of copyright infringement.  But Amazon sells many of his old and new workouts for much less than retail, so I racked up.  Tae Bo is a great cross training workout for the days that I don’t run.  Billy has released a new workout series called Billy Blanks PT 24/7.  PT 24/7 comes with gloves, and a set of bands that attach to the gloves and your feet.

Now, as much as I know for a fact that his workouts are really work, I cannot see myself paying 3 easy payments of $29.95.  That’s almost $100!  For Billy Blanks?  I’m going to need him to come down on the price. I wonder if he has a lifetime-follower discount?  Probably not?  Oh, well, I’ll just wait.  Come January people ditch their new year’s resolutions to lose weight and I bet I can find PT 24/7 for $20, on Amazon  What’s the most you have paid for the a fitness craze?

Have a wonderful weekend!

2010, A Year to Remember

29 Dec

Remember when you made BIG plans for New Year’s Eve?  When you and your friends had to find the best spot in town to ring in the new year?  I remember those days fondly 🙂  Some years I would have a shindig at my house, other years I would go out on the town. One year I even went to church with my oldest sister (that was really nice).

This year that I will be spending New Year‘s eve with my new husband. WOW, I have a husband?  What a difference a year makes.   Last year this time we had been dating for six months, and now a year later were Mr. and Mrs. Williams.  We went from dating, to engaged, and finally to being married in a year’s time.  I honestly don’t want this year to end.  Needless to say it’s one of THE BEST year’s of my life.  I do look forward to 2011 and having another fruitful year with Dr. B, but oh how I wish the 2010 whirlwind would never end.  I know our marriage will continue to grow and get better, I will grow and become a better wife.  Yes, I ‘m looking forward to the future, but, damn 2010 was great!

Are you ready to start the 2011, or was 2010 so good you don’t want it to end?
