Garth & Kat…the remake...

We've had the privilege to have my best friend Sarah Rogers and her son Miles stay at our house since the end of January (until mid March when Sarah gets married to Myke Olsen- 3/14/14). It's been so much fun for all of us! It's like having a sister wife (except for sharing the husband) - someone to watch Reese when I need to pickup carpool for Jovie, an instant "cousin" for Jovie to play with, cooking dinners together so that it actually makes sense to cook, staying up late and talking, watching the Winter Olympics and crappy reality tv (the Bachelor- Juan Pablo!!), etc!

So, Jovie and Miles share a special love for Legos! We just went two weeks ago to see The Lego Movie in theater and just loved it! They play Legos the minute Miles gets home from school (unless it's Minecraft on the iPad) and talk mini figs, sets and pieces. 

Well the other night before bed these two goof balls were looking through Jovie's Lego book and started mimicking each other about the sets and how many pieces were in each one and it got me busting up laughing! 

Doesn't that video remind you a bit of this Saturday Night Live skit of Garth (Fred Armison) & Kat (Kristen Wiig)!

(I couldn't get any videos on YouTube, but I needed a picture for the memory! haha)

I love these two together. They are such good friends. And it makes it even easier when I'm great friends with his mama too.

I've thought long and hard about this...and I've decided to actually do things that are humanly possible. I'm kind  of a mess when it comes to "realistic" goals. To a "normal" person, my goals are quite lofty- to me, they are doable. Are they REALLY doable, you ask? Some, yes. Most, no way. I aim too high, and in the process feel like a failure when I can't do them. Why do I do this to myself?!! I'm NOT a failure. I can stick to things. I can finish projects. It's just REALLY hard for me!!! 

So, in an attempt to resolve some things, here is my 2014 resolutions list! (In no particular order)

1. Blog at least once a week.
2. Stick to a house cleaning list!
3. Finish one craft project every 2 months! 
4. Complete 1/2 Young Women's medallion. (I've already gotten it as a YW but now want to do it as a leader!)
5. Read the Book of Mormon cover to cover!!
6. Read all book club books (about 20 books this year- including both book clubs I participate in)
7. Pray each day for instruction on how I can better serve The Lord. 
8. Go to the gym 3 days a week (or other form of exercise!) 
9. Track and lower sugar intake! 
10. Hold Family Home Evening EVERY week! 
11. Better execute meal planning- write out meals for the week, shop for and cook at least 3 dinner meals! 

For now, this seems like a good list!! Here goes nothin'! 

In other news- I am a lucky lady. I have two adorable kids who LOVE each other and an amazingly talented and hard working husband- all of whom I am incredibly grateful for!!
