I'm definitely taking strides toward meeting my page goal, but this is by far the heftiest page goal I've set. I am nervous that I may fall behind and not catch up, but we'll have to see what this year brings!

I also want to warn you, readers, that I'm probably going to be behind on reviews for a while. I may not get caught up until after the wedding. Let me know if there's a particular book you'd like to see reviewed sooner than my deadline of "whenever," though, and I'd be happy to post that review! :)
I'm currently enrolled in a Management Information Systems (MIS) course and am really loving it! While I'm not big on computers, I am interested in how different software and data programs can assist us in our daily tasks. I'm also obsessed with social media, which now influences many facets of MIS.

Considering how cold it's been, I should probably be making scarves and blankets; but alas, all my crafts right now are centerpieces and other wedding DIY projects...

I'll be seeing more travel this winter than last. I've already taken one trip to my hometown, but have 3 more planned before the wedding. I'll also be spending four days in my state's Capital in February, and five days in our nation's Capital in March.

I found a planner. I went with a filofax. Seriously? Amazing :)
I'll try to upload a picture of it soon.

Plans for the wedding are coming together, but still keeping me plenty busy. Between work, working out, volunteer work organizations, and school, I'm having to squeeze wedding planning in where I can. It should go ok though :)

This was our delicious New Year's Day dinner...Surf 'n Turf! Yum!
