I normally don’t make just one resolution, that is too intense for me. All of the attention is focused on that one, single, solitary resolution and then I get performance anxiety and just back down. Yeah, it probably isn’t quite that dramatic, but still. I figure that if I make several goals, I have a much better chance at keeping at least ONE of them. Is that logic backwards? I am a little backwards, so its okay.
The Big Bad Resolution List of 2010:
1. Be more patient. This is going to be a hard one. I am not a naturally patient person. I see that my lovely two year old is inheriting this from me, and that is not so nice. I want to be a good example for her and I really think this will have the biggest impact.
2. Learn more about photography. I used to be so into photography, but somewhere between being a college student and having a baby, I wandered away from the hobby. I’d love to get back into it and better my skills.
3. Try more things (events, restaurants, markets, ect.) locally. If I could choose anywhere to live right now North Texas probably wouldn’t be my first choice. Nevertheless, it is where I am and I have decided to do my best to put a positive spin on it. I want to learn and experience more of my surroundings.
4. Spend more time creating things. I scrapbooked last night with my mum for the first time in months and had an amazing time. I realized how much I missed just sitting down and making something out of nothing. It is so relaxing and a great way to spend quality time with my mum (which I definitely don’t get enough of).
As of right now, that is all I’ve got. I’m sure along the course of the next year I will add to and edit this list. I am excited for the next year and excited for my new blog.


Hi, I’m Desiree. I am a silly, crazy, stressed, creative, sarcastic, fashionable (I like to think) college student and parent on a budget. I like my life to be as streamlined as possible, which can be a challenge when you have a two year old. Enough about me, lets talk about the birth of this brand new baby blog. After realizing that I have 40+ pairs of shoes, yet I was only wearing the same two pairs over and over and over again, I decided that I needed to switch it up a little. I made the choice to try and put a little more effort into what I looked like, which led me to the fashion blogs. I found myself incredibly inspired, not only by the fashion but also by the writing, photography, and decor that I discovered.
For months I kicked around the idea of starting my own blog but I wasn’t entirely sure how I wanted to go about it. Then it hit me - there is no time better than NOW. We are about to hop right into a new year and I feel like this blog will help me keep several of my New Year’s Resolutions (which will come later). So yes, my shoe collection spawned this blog but once I put more thought into it, it turned out to be a creative outlet for me.I have a few goals for this blog and I love lists, so said goals will be delivered in list format :)
1. To get all of my creative/silly/interesting/dumb/whatever thoughts out of my head and onto paper (er, E-ink?).
2. To show people that even though it isn’t easy to find a balance between being a student, a mum, and just myself - it can be done and I’m going to figure out how.
3. To try new local things and showcase them for people who live/visit the Dallas area.
4. For personal growth. My hope is that if I have a commitment to showcasing the things I do/wear/create/think then I will be more diligent about not falling back into a comfort zone with these things.

So, here it is. My blog. I hope you will enjoy the things that float around in my head. My life is crazy, but who doesn’t have a crazy life? It is more fun that way.
