A new year already??!

well... Happppppy New Year friends!

We went down to San Diego {love it there} for New Years and got to party it up on a yacht... it's not everyday you get to cruise the Coronado Bay on a 5 story yacht, well... at least not for us, that is!

Here's a few pictures of the yacht:

{This is a view from the deck of the 3rd story. Those doors automatically open}

{This is a view from the inside of the 3rd story out to the deck}

{These stairs lead up to the 4th level where they have a BBQ, jacuzzi & helicopter pad}
{And here it is all lit up at night}

The last picture we took in 2010!

It was definitely a memorable way to bring in the New Year!

We also got to celebrate my husbands birthday down there. We opened lots of presents, went to breakfast & got to cruise around in a gorgeous red BMW Z8.

How cute is he?? I just love him.
 Here's a video Grant took as he was riding in the BMW...

My favorite part of the whole thing is how hard
he's laughing. So fun.

Now any good new years wouldn't be complete without a few resolutions, right??
And honestly, I really hate  the term "resolutions". I feel like it's so played out... so I'd like to call them goals. It just seems more realistic if it's a "goal".

So here's a few of my goals... and yes, I really do only have a few...

1. Keep it cookin'

Yep, I want to keep expanding on my cookin' skills.
 Thought I'd share what I've recently been making on the regular...

Edamame, Craisin & Wild Rice Salad

Isn't it colorful?? (This is right before I mixed it all together)
Anyways... it goes GREAT as a side with grilled chicken.
Here's the recipe.

2. More Date Nights with the hubster.
I could definitely use more consistent date nights with my man. I feel like marriage is an ongoing process that you have to work at continually... some fun date nights should definitely help with that! I also want to start a little date night scrapbook (gives me an excuse to get my craft on) & plus I think it'll be fun for our {future} kids to look back on.

3. Iron Girl Triathlon

Hey, everyone needs some motivation to workout and what better than signing up for a race?? I totally signed up for my very first Iron Girl Triathlon! Since I've already ran 3 half marathons I decided it would be time to switch it up a bit... I even signed up for a swim class for beginner triathletes. I don't know about you but I've never really had a "real" swim lesson- I can definitely fend for myself but hey, I don't sign up for races to just squeak by... I mean, c'mon! I want to kick some booty!!

This week I had my first session... not thinking anything of it I pulled my hair into a ponytail and grabbed my good'ol Victoria Secret swimsuit... although I might have looked cute at first, I don't think it was so cute when I pushed off the side of the pool to start my laps and completely mooned the lifeguard on stand when
my pants came down!
So yes, a big thank you goes to Victoria for showing off my secrets.............

Annnnnd with that, I decided it was time to get serious.

I went out and purchased my first Speedo ever & of course I had to get a matching zebra swim cap to go along!

 So now I'm pretty pumped!

Our kitties seem to have a newly found interest in water too...
They've recently discovered:

the bath tub.

Rexy looooves playing with the shower curtain & Stella loves drinking the water.

And our latest news is that Grant goes in for surgery this Friday...
So keep him in your prayers!
