We made it.
A new year.
Time to forget all of those gluten-free cookies we ate in the last few weeks and move forward. No punishing. No feeling guilty.
Moving on. (and eating plenty of these to balance out all that sugar and flour)
I can’t remember the last time I actually wrote down New Year’s resolutions. Let’s get serious. I never really write them down. But each year I at least think about them. Even say them out loud some years.
This year was different. Maybe it was because my dear friend was in town visiting. Or because we really wanted to craft, but hadn’t come up with an idea yet. But something got us to the point of not only putting them on paper, but getting crafty about it.
What started as a list of tenets typed on a sitcky note on the Mac, turned into an evening of appetizers, cardstock, rubber cement and our commitments to 2011.
My guy was more into whipping up snacks for us than picking out colors and using the paper cutter. Weird, I know.
He’s crafty on a food level though. My fridge was pretty bare, but he came up with some appetizers that rocked our first night of 2011.
On our table:
- Bean Dip: refried beans with sriracha sour cream, homemade salsa, cheese and cilantro
- Nut Thins topped with Merkts cheese spread
- Ceviche made with Alaskan halibut (that my adventurous friend caught herself and brought with her)
- Prosecco with fresh fruit
We made it.
Here’s to 2011, the year of: running my 5K, yoga, finishing a sewing project, sending snail mail, organizing my blog and office, and learning Norwegian.
Did you jot down some goals for this year? Or are you still trying to remember what you said you would do in 2010? Either way, we want to know!
