New Years Resolutions

Okay so since its almost February I thought .... Maybe I should make my new years resolutions. Here they are!!!

1) Get a Job! I am currently unemployed and I would love to say that I feel really bad about it and feel like a disgrace to the human race... but in reality... I love it and I can care less! I guess it shouldn't be too hard for me to get a job since I am a hair stylist and all... but I sort of am trying to figure things out... AKA... enjoying crafting and not having to wake up early :)

2) Lose some major LBS!! I know this is like numero UNO on almost every ones list... but this is serious business... I am not going to eat myself into 300lbs... I don't have this unrealistic goal of weighing 120 lbs because lets be serious... I don't think my skeleton even weighs 120 lbs. I mean I think my head weighs a good 30 pounds ... ego not included!!! According to a BMI for a 5 foot 8 inch person I should weigh 125-165 lbs.... Oh boy... I will do this by pants size I want to be a size 12 or 10 by 2010! I've started by quitting soda. Drinking way more water and doing a little portion control and eating healthier. Also I started the gym thing again... (KILL ME!!!) I don't know what the deal is but I feel out of place in the gym... I mean thank god the thong leotard over spandex is no longer in style because I would just be SCREWED! SO yeah... Its a start. Don't think I am going to get all Oprah on you... hahaha Lets take a look down memory lane...

Here I am at 2 with my mom

Here is me in High school... I always thought I was fat and ugly... hahahaaha I would kill to be that weight again!

I think I just got out of high school at Temple Square in Salt Lake

A few years ago...
me a few years ago



2009 - The double chin is a comin in strong!!!
Brook city scape

hahaha oh boy... looking at all those pictures was so funny! and depressing! Once I get in relationships I start packin' on the LBS hahaha!! Maybe kicking Juan to the curb will give me the jump start I need... HAHAHAHAHA Just kidding!!! Next resolution!

3) By 2010 only say "FUCK" and its fellow ways of saying it " Mother Fucker" " What the FUCK!" "Fuckface" " Fucktard" 3 times a day.... ( Come on I have to be realistic!!!) The reason is because I was driving yesterday and talking to Juan and he said something and my response was " Thank FUCKING God!!" Who says that? apparently me! I am going to hell in a hand basket! I use Fuck to really let people know I am serious.... hahahahaha My mom says its not so bad because I always say it in such a funny way and not to be evil.... but still... SO I need to try to get down to 3 times a day... That doesn't include Text... i.e. I can say it in text, blog, emails etc... I am trying to be realistic in my goals....

4) Take a quilting class, make a quilt and finish the one I started 6 years ago. This goal is already in the works. I organized an embroidery swap with a few flickr girls and I sent out quilt squares. My theme is tattoo flash/ 1940's sailor jerry style.Here is one quilt square I've already made for my quilt!

Rise and Shine

5) Get 100 sales on my Etsy. I have 76 so far so lets hope for the best!

6) Take a ceramic class... I am always looking for new ways to waste my time :)

7) Be a better girlfriend... ( How is that possible?) I have the Owens temper... and I always feel I need to be right. Like if I know he's wrong I will make sure he knows it... Such as googling it and showing him, making bets... You know all the things that men hate for you to do! I need to learn that I don't always need the last word, I don't always have to be right, I don't always need to make my point... Hes a pretty easy going guy and I think he would really like to punch me sometimes... hahahahaha... Poor guy! But I cook him dinner so that makes up for it. hahahah

8) Get a passport so I can go on vacation out of the country. I think this is the year!! I've been to Cabo San Lucas but that was before you needed a passport. I want to go either to South America, Europe, or Japan.

9) Get on a skin regime. I think I am getting wrinkles... I'm 23! Any recommendations would be great! (No Fragrance)

10) Make 1 new true friend. A real friend who isn't lame and doesn't stab you in the back, is jealous, or drama. I am looking for a funny actually they don't have to be funny, just think that I am HAHAHA and likes to craft! I KNOW SOMEONE IS OUT THERE!!

So that's it folks!! There is my list.

Awesome! You're on the bandwagon with me!!! If I can get myself to drop the pounds with my stupid back injury, then I think you can do it too. And I know EXACTLY what you mean about the gym, I hate it hate it hate it! And when you go to swim, bathing suits are hardly better than the sweet 80's leotards, you know!?!

I've always wanted to make a quilt too, but I don't know how to day. I have a whole quilt's worth of little squares cut out when that day finally comes. I took ceramics as a kid and I would LOVE to do it again, it was a blast.

As far as making new friends goes...I'll be there on Saturday! I'm excited!

Estela said...

You sound exactly like my older sister! A sailor cussin', sailor jerry lover, with a temper! haha
Your HS pic was cute! And the 2006 pic was super cute! love the outfit

good luck w/ all those resolutions <3

Jules said...

1. How old is your mom in that picture? 10? Good grief I feel OLD!

2. Your second resolution had was one of the funniest things I have read in a long time.

You are super cute, and 10 years from now you are going to look back on these pictures and realize it. :)

Tanya said...

I could not limit myself to using the F-bomb 3 times a day. No way, no how. I've also always wanted to take a ceramics or pottery class and I've wanted to learn how to quilt, but I'm horrible with a sewing machine (and there's no way I'm doing it by hand).

And you are GORGEOUS, woman!

classy broad said...

brook, i think you are just the cutest! i don't think you will have any trouble making one new friend!

but honestly, your goal to say fuck less? *sigh. if it makes you feel better, i am probably just as bad as you! <3

Here's what I think:
1) You're gorgeous. If you had a face like a slapped ass there'd be something to worry about, but you don't. Is it better to be thin but constantly struggling to maintain it, or a bit bigger and more relaxed about the whole thing. If Juan loves you as you are now, then what's the problem? :)
2) Drinking water is probably the best thing to do and will definitely help with...
3) Wrinkles. Stuff 'em. As long as they're smily wrinkles rather than frowny ones, so be it. I'm 34 now, and have got some forehead lines, but they come from happy expressions, so I'm not fussed. If the wrinkles come from pursed lips, on the other hand, then get botox and cheer the hell up! :)
4) And finally, you're still gorgeous. You're one of the nicest people I've never met. So don't sweat the small stuff.

Lots of intercontinental love,

Good luck on your resolutions! they don't seem like unobtainable ones either. I need to lose some serious weight, this year I am going to stick w/ it and actually do it!

iowa-girl-in-korea said...

I like the make a friend resolution. I think I might try that one myself since I always bitch that I am lacking in the friend department!

Best of luck with your resolutions!

Hey Brook I just started reading your blog. You have a great way with words. You are just so funny and gorgeous. I hear you when it comes to the "F" word I say it way to much and I have a new grandson I don't want to hear him saying it so I must stop. Boy is it hard it's one of my favorite words. I guess I can text it until he can read. Good luck with all your resolutions.

PS I like you as a blond best.

I used to work for a dermatologist, plus I myself have a nice complexion. The not-so-secret to a nice face is moisturizing! I've been doing it since I was a kid and I swear that is why I have always had good skin. I moisturize every time I wash my face and I always put lotion under my make-up.

If you're prone to oily skin then get an oil-free moisturzer. The dermatologist I worked for recommended Cetaphil to everyone. He said why pay big bucks when Cetaphil has everything you need and is gentle on the skin?

Having worked for a dermatologist, I can tell you first hand that moisturizing is also the absolute best way to ward off and prevent wrinkles. Oh, and SUNSCREEN! How could I forget sunscreen?! Don't even waste your time with anything less than 25 spf. That is what my boss always said.

Now let me get off my sassy horse...

Good luck with your resolutions. I made some as well and I hope I can stick with them. So far so good.

I would also like to add that I think you're gorgeous - simply gorgeous, darling!

Rachel said...

brook, listen hussy, you know you look good! girl, you supa fly! i wholeheartedly agree with jamie one wants to cuddle with a skeleton. good luck on your resolutions though! you are SO CLOSE to 100 sales! yay!

torrance said...

Fun, I didn't know we were the same age.

And I think you look gorgeous at any size. But if you really want to loose some lbs the gym is a great place. I don't even want to loose weight, even though I aint a small girl, but I've lost about 12lbs since this summer just because I started doing sports after 5 years of sitting on my ass.. And I'm one of those weird peole who hit the gym just because they like it.(Psst.. if i wanted to be "normal weight" according to BMI I'd still need to loose about 18 lbs, fuck that!)

Chrisy said...

Love your writing entertaining....bugger the job....just write!

I've been following your blog, and I think that your humor and spirit is infectious! As for the f-bomb, who gives a fuck!!! I was once described as a "real broad", and it was meant as a compliment, and I took as one. I agree: if it's said with humor and good intentions, don't sweat it honey. As for your looks, you're QUITE lovely, a bit of shapely meat on the bone is always nice.

You can always get to the gym, quit cussing, get a passport, etc...I think that the hardest part of your journey is the friend component.

I know, that was one of my resolutions too.

Can I offer some advice? Be yourself, you do YOU! Enjoy your life, keep creating, keep smiling that wonderful smile, and you will find each other. And because you'll be so busy being yourself, that if anyone whose intentions are less that noble, you'll know right away.

Good luck!

Little Rascal said...

Oh my! You look way too nice in brown hair, I like you as a blonde because you look cheeky and adventurous and sexy. (Can I say that?)

Wrinkles at 23? Oy Vei!
Get plenty of sleep, less stress, laugh more and drink plenty of water.
Oh, and the "horizontal mambo" is also good because of all the hormones.

kelseycliche said...

Wow, that quilt square is awesome! I can't wait to see more!

Jocelan Thiessen said...

na said...
