I have been looking forward to February for a while, not only because of the Superbowl (Yeah Patriots!) but because it's the shortest month for a long while! I feel like it's way easier for me to set harder goals for myself during February because it's shorter and I can see the end sooner. I guess that could be considered cheating or copping out, but I got to start somewhere, right? Here are a few things I want to accomplish in February! I figure by writing them down on my public blog, I will be able to hold myself more accountable for achieving them! No Soda-I've been meaning to go on a "no soda" fast for a long time, but I just love Barq's Rootbeer so so . . .
I have been on the hunt ever since I've been married to find the best chocolate chip cookie recipe. I have had some pretty successful attempts and a couple really interesting and weird fails too (like this one time I completely spaced on adding brown sugar to the dough....not my best effort). Dustin and I babysat our friends' little girl a few nights ago and they left us some cookies to eat for a snack. They were some of the best cookies I ever had! My friend introduced me to Averie Cooks and I have been drooling over her recipes ever since. I decided to try one of her chocolate chip cookie recipes out for Superbowl Sunday (GO PATRIOTS!) and after changing a few . . .
I am so excited to be linking up today with Betsy from Heavens to Betsy on her brilliant idea to do a Guys Behind the Blog Link Up! Today I am introducing you all the the guy behind my blog, my husband, Dustin. Getting Life with Rosie up and running would not have been possible if he did not support me and believe in me. I talk about him a lot, but I thought this was a fun way for him to introduce himself through an interview! 1 // Introduce yourself! Ok. Well, my name is Dustin Carr. I...have a wonderful wife and sweet pup. I am a 23 year old student at BYU-Idaho nearing the end of my degree in business management. I enjoy being a hard worker, but I . . .
I've been thinking about motivation all week and what I need to do to keep myself motivated. I definitely could improve in motivating myself; ever since I graduated college last April, I have found myself in limbo. While waiting for Dustin to finish his degree, I picked up a part time job that was enjoyable but had nothing to do with my degree. I went from going a million miles an hour between work and school and student teaching and classes to twenty. It was really hard to motivate myself because I felt like I had nothing going for me. I especially had a hard time staying motivated around the house and keeping up on the chores! In this last few . . .
Okay, I know I'm going to get a lot of flack here for even writing about this, but I'm not doing it to set up tension or start serious controversy. With the whole "deflategate" and "spygate" issues spanning the media, the Patriots have become the team to hate and to route against. I can almost see why because the media has made it so easy to hate them. They don't have a perfect track record and they have made some mistakes in the past, so it's easy to pin more things on them. But, so have the Seahawks (remember the Adderall issue, anyone?). I rooted for the Seahawks last year because I couldn't stand the thought of the Broncos/Manning winning. I . . .
