I've been trying to write a 2011 recap for the past week..

It's just not happening, while there are short spurts of witty Amberish humor, it feels forced and disingenuous.. not a fan.

So instead we will just move right along into the New Year.


The year of restoring balance.

You know when Christmas rolls around and you order an egg-nog latte everyday for like two months straight.. then suddenly you have gained 10lbs and can only wear that velour sweat-suit you promised yourself you would never wear?


Oh.. thats never happened to me either... but let's just say I know a gal....

So, instead maybe this gal should have gotten like only one egg-nog latte a week, or even bi-weekly? (crazy thought!) She should have stuck with her normal not AS fattening drink on the off days in order to avoid the above mentioned sweat suit..

You know....


I woke up one morning during Christmas break (in my velour sweat suit) and realized that maybe... just maybe a few areas in my life had gotten a little out of balance.

My ideal balance..

Sexiest jogger in all the land husband
Roosevelt House
My peeps
Dream Job
Creative endeavors

I look at this list and it makes my tummy feel funny.. because my reality has not been this.

It's time to find balance again..

And maybe switch to decaf.

I was TOTALLY joking about switching to decaf.. as if.

I know of a local coffee shop that serves egg-nog ALL YEAR LONG.. who wants to meet me??

Again..joking..balance..check..got it...right.
