out with the old in with the new...


o mi gawsh!  its a new year!  yey-yah!  i'm so looking forward to this year.  i don't make resolutions. i make goals.  hmmm what's mine?


  • complete my CEC's before the end of this year
  • new Zumba/dance routines every month, at least one
  • get my credit card debt in check, pay it down every month (if i won the lottery, this would be the first thing i'd take care of)
  • keep improving my relationships, both personal and Zumba-wise
  • make a Zumba commercial for my Zumba FB page by the end of winter or earlier (i may have a hookup on that, one of my students is into photography and videography!)
  • scrapbook at least one page per month
  • complete a few project life layouts every other week
  • do my Zumba record keeping on a regular basis


thats just a few of them...

i turned 43 this past December 26!  and i created this layout especially for this moment.... used one of the cocoa daisy kits of course...just listed my accomplishments this past year of my life.


i got these on my day too...


spent my day with these peeps, my fave peeps in the whole wide world...and we ate at Spenard Roadhouse and i had one of my faves there...









a little last selfie before the night was over....

perfect ending.

sheez...it's been way too long...

first off...so sorry that i haven't been blogging as much.  it's been crazy busy on my end....

...teaching more Zumba, sometimes i have a full week and no days off but most times i at least get tuesdays off.  then i just got hired as a zumba and dance cardio instructor with the alaska club this past november and i start a thursday night class at their eagle river location in january 2015.  i will be dropping my arctic oasis community center gig after december 31.  i had to drop one of my gigs in order to do the AK club one, so i chose this one.  AO was a great way to start my teaching career

...this past september we moved on base, onto JBER.  it was a great decision.  now me and the hubby are so much closer to our work places.  i love living on base, its convenient, not remote at all, safe, clean. just loving it.

...holidays are have come and gone and now xmas is here.  maiya will be with us the first week of winter vacay and flies out on the 29th.  but she is flying as i type this for the weekend to seattle.  (all this flying out is getting expensive and somewhat annoying because she misses some of her taekwondo practices on fridays....5 more years of this...i'm patient..but damn it's putting me into debt, which i am not accustomed to). we got almost all our xmas shopping done, except maybe a couple of other stuff for our girls we have yet gotten.  just sent out our holiday card to friends and family...



...haven't been scrapping as much as i would like and doing my project life...but here are a few that i've done...







i used cocoa daisy kits on all of them.

hoping to get more scrapping time in especially since my birthday is coming up!  woot woot!

well gotta jet and get ready for to teach my Zumba class this morning! hasta luego!

5#FIVE#CINCO

it's our 5th year anniversary....





used the cocoa daisy february "color swatch" kit.

we have been thru ups and downs in our relationship.
ya gotta have the ying and yang.
without the downs, the ups wouldn't be so exciting.
life would be boring and you really wouldn't learn from each other.
what i love about our relationship is we do argue...
but..
we always make up.
we can't seem to stay mad at each other too long.
i love him.
so happy and grateful we found each other...
especially grateful that we are gonna keep it going...
til we are oldies but always goodies.
lmao!
