Last Saturday was my 27th Birthday.... I am a little behind in reporting my current events! It was a wonderful birthday weekend.... full of lots of fun, relaxation, and celebrating!!! I had off all weekend and Monday....a three weekend (a rare treat for me!) Rusty took off on Saturday, so we had lots of time together. We both work six days a week and every Saturday.... I am jealous of people who have off two days each weekend! Anyway, back to the birthday celebration! Friday night we headed out to dinner with Julie at Chilis for some yummy food and then to the movies to see Beauty and the Beast in 3D.... I loved it! I love anything Disney and this happens to be one of my Disney favorites.... I am a sucker for the love story :) I also was a sucker for the butter popcorn too.... not the best for my diet, opps!

Rusty and I headed out to lightening bowling at our local bowling alley with some friends Saturday night(several of Rusty's co-workers and Julie our best friend came along). The guy who planned the whole event requested that everyone wear an "ugly" sweater, it was a good time.... funny to see what everyone decided to wear. The whole concept oif lightening bowl was fun, lights were turned down and they had the music up loud.... a first time for us :) Rusty and I made a trip to the good will to find our "special" sweaters as like to call them.... you can see pictures below, how do you think we did..... they are pretty ugly, right?

It was pretty easy to make and you don't need much, just whatever veggies you have around the house.
Here is what we used:
1.5 cup brown rice (follow directions on the box)
2 pork chops cooked and then chopped
1/2 yellow onion, sliced
4 carrots, chopped
Cook veggies until tender, season with minced garlic, soy sauce (low sodium), and pepper
Once veggies are tender mix rice and meat together with the veggies and let simmer. You can add more soy sauce to taste if you like
It's that's easy, super yummy and healthy :)

I have enjoyed reading everyone's goals for the upcoming year. I thought I would go ahead and share some of my goals for the upcoming year. I had to think hard about these goals.... I have been working on one of my big goals for the past 9-10 months (my weight loss) but I knew that I could come up with some other goals along the way.... plus it would be fun to have them "written" out here on the blog, so that I can check next year on how well I did on my goals. My Goals: 1. Continue my weight loss journey... I have lost about 75 pounds so far and have about 25-30 more pounds to go! 2. Get back into working out five days a week (something I have been slacking on since the holidays) and maybe join a local gym to work on weight lifting 3. Blog at least weekly, hopefully a little bit more. I have become a very bad blogger.... so this is something that I hope to improve on (thanks for reading even when I forget to blog in over a month!) 4. Meet new friends, become more "social" with my community.... I am not sure if this is the best way to word this goal but I miss being involved with groups (like I was in college, so I would like to join some sort of community group or organization) 5. Be more budget friendly.... Rusty and I are both quilty of spending unecessary money and would like to become better at this. Sure, we are able to pay our bills each month and are not suffering by any menas but it is always nice to save more money when able, even if it is just to use it for fun stuff like Disney :) Just joking.... I think ;) What are your goals for the near year????
