The new blog way...

So, I'm loving the idea of having a blog of my own.  I'm really enjoying finding new and interesting blogs and putting more and more things on my "this might look cool in the (insert room)" list.  And, what better way to be a new blog than do to a link up?  Might as well jump right into things and join the party!

There's a link up over at Budget Blonde that I thought would be a lot of fun!  A post about the ism's of your town.  Now, I've lived in upstate New York my whole life... and 2 years ago moved a half hour south from where I grew up.  The difference a half hour makes is shocking!  This is Albany...

It's pretty shocking to see people sitting outside the gym, smoking a cigarette before going inside. TIA

Saw a serious outburst of road rage when someone sat at a green arrow for 2 seconds before moving... the guy behind him was waving him over to the side of the road for a fight. TIA

I got carded to be walking around the mall after 9pm. TIA

I've never been carded at the liquor store. TIA

Girls/Women at the gym must have their make-up done before working out.  Is there a point to this?  TIA.

That's all I can think of for now... My brain is swimming for dessert ideas for tonight's dinner.  Today marks 4 years with my wonderful boyfriend.  4 whole years.  Time flies when you're having fun, I guess!

Til next time...

My name is Jenn, and this is my blog

So, I've stumbled across a few blogs that I have found very interesting... I didn't want to follow them using the blog that I've had for a year, because... well... it's the blog of my dog, Corbin.  Kind of odd when a 2 year old pittie rescue mix is following and commenting on some fun DIY blogs.  Plus, I figured, what the heck... what's another blog?  I have a lot to say... somedays.  I have a lot of things I want to do - mainly, to get organized.  Then, I figure everything else will fall into place, right?  Eh... I'll keep thinking that.

So, who am I?  I'm a 26 year old... almost 27 year old (how'd that happen?) girl trying to make it in the real world.  Everyone says that, don't they?  Guess it's true for most.  I have a wonderful boyfriend who has stuck around through thick and thin for the past 4 years now.  He's amazing and I couldn't imagine my life without him.  I have an awesome dog.  I have a super support system through my family.  I have a full time job and a full time volunteer "job" working with a dog rescue.  I have very little free time after my family, boyfriend, dog, work and rescue. 

But, I love my life. 

Just a few things I need to.... "tune" up.  My mission in the next 365 days is to get organized, lose weight, hang SOMETHING on the bare walls in my house, use coupons, reduce debt, save money.  Oh... and continue enjoying life.

This blog is the start of that journey... let's see how far I can get.
