My Year in Books, Movies, TV & Music

I saw a similar blog post from another blog, so thought I'd join in the fun and post. I've not blogged much this past year and I really hope to get back into that.

--Lights Camera Action!

I'm a huge movie Lover! We've been doing Netflix for awhile now and I really love that we can watch endless movies and tv shows instantly. Now the movies I list may not necessarily be new releases, just movies I've watched throughout the year of 2010. Being that the year was '10 I want to list 10 of each.

Christmas Story
Remember Me
The Other Guys
Despicable Me

Tv Shows
Gossip Girl
Desperate Housewives
The Glades
Grey's Anatomy
True Blood
The Gates

Books I've Read

Okay I'll be the first to admit I've not read many books really since giving birth to my daughter over 4 years ago. I just had my little boy, Devin back in November plus I'm going to school and we also just got our own place so things are so crazy for me. But in 2011 I really want to get back into reading more and not just school text books.

On A Snowy Night
The Last Song
The Vampire Diaries
Dead Until Dark

So as you can see I've not read many books and actually I've not read many into completion that I've got listed here. But like I've said I really hope to Change that this coming year. I've got a few series that I really love to read.

Twilight Series (one book left!)

The "Anne" Series by L.M. Montgomery (currently on Anne of Avonlea

Charlaine Harris Series that's based on the " True Blood " series ( currently reading the first book, "Dead until Dark"

Little House on The Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder ( Currently on Book 2, which I think is titled " Farm Boy"

The Vampire Diaries the Complete Series

Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake Series

The Vampire Academy Series by Rachelle Mead

House of Night Series by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast

Kay Scarpetta Series by Patricia Cornwell, I've read several in the series and I love them.

Sandra Gulland's Historical Fiction Series based on Josephine Bonaparte, I've read the first two books in which they where fast reads. I read them while I was pregnant and actually my daughter's middle name is Josephine. I love that name.

Jesse Stone Series by Robert B. Parker

Okay so I think that's enough, I doubt I'll read half of these books, and some I've already started some but I this is a great selection of books.

Journey to a better me.

So everyone I'm sure is making New Year's Resolutions for the upcoming year of 2011. I guess I'm no different. I had planned doing Weight Watchers because my insurance says you can do the plan without any cost to you. Well, I called the other day and Weight Watchers in my area doesn't do that in my area any longer. Talk about a huge let down!!!!!! Urgh....I really don't know much about the new plan to do it on my own. I may try to do it on my own using their website for awhile. Dunno, we'll see I suppose. But I defiantly want to learn how to eat better and learn to cook healthier meals for me and my family.

I've been seriously wanting to do some sort of workout from BeachBody, we'll since I had a C-Section 6 weeks ago I thought I'd start out something low key. So I decided to go with Turbo Jam. I thought I'd do a complete rotation of the program then maybe do something different. I'd love to eventually do all the program's. I'm just sooooo sick of feeling miserable and I'm so ready to start working on me. I know I can do it, heck I've done it before. It's just I guess I let things get the best of me. I'm so exhausted at times. Well I guess I've got the right to be, I mean goodness I'm a newly mother of not only a newborn but of a VERY HYPER ACTIVE 4 Year Old. Some days my daughters ADHD & her developmental Delays gets the best of me. it wears me soo down that all I want to do is just have a moment of complete silence. Anyhow, my Turbo Jam should be in the mail tomorrow!!!! I can't wait to start! What is 30 mins to an hour of time to myself. Don't I deserve that?!? My husband wants to start eating healthy so that's a good thing. We just moved so I'm still trying to get my husband to move my treadmill over here too. So who wants to start this Journey with me?
