Hello 2014!

New year = new chores! We’ve been spending time decorating, doing yard work and just organizing in general! I want to really start decorating our house – we don’t really have much furniture and all our rooms have become storage rooms – ooops! So, I have decided that my new years resolution is to be more organized! Not just with house stuff but I’ve been really bad about blogging so I want to really change that! I tend to gather lots of ideas and stories to blog about but when I get in front of my lappy I forget and my busy brain goes off topic.

My sisters bought me a new notebook for 2014. I will be carrying it everywhere! I also want to redo the front page of Mind-Speaks.com

1. My hubby and our friend Paul at a Houston Gaymers event. 2. Bravely Default demo done! I can’t wait for the full game! 3. Blue shiny nails. 4. Free People have the coolest packaging, this was their shopping bag! 5. BLUE DR. MARTENS! Totally a pain breaking them in but they are slowly starting to feel better. 6. Pokemon Plushies! Most of these were gifts we gave to friends for Christmas. I am glad we have so many gaming/pokemon friends!

OH, we’ve been taking Tomo outside! He loves pretending to be a wild kitty. Here is a video of him in action.

    Our rooms have also become storage rooms! I guess that’s the bad thing about having too much room in the house, haha. I’m currently trying to decorate our house too, and I’m hopefully going furniture shopping this weekend πŸ™‚

    That’s a cute notebook! Tomo is adorable too. He looks like he’s having fun πŸ˜€

    @Cat, we have ideas but we just never have enough time or really know where to start. I never was too good with decor.

    He is loving the outside but the weather has prevented us letting him go out ;o; so he has the winter blues, he just sits and looks out the window.

    Your trouble with blogging is me when i’m about to write. all the ideas always jumping in my head but when I open word document, they always run away.

    I’m so jealous of your pokemon plushies! and they’re of the new generations too!!
    I only have squirtle with me…and i don’t even remember where did i put that bald turtle. i only have patamon on my bed now pfft i’m not even that huge on digimon… (pokemon > digimon for me)

    your cat is so cute >w<

    @Alice, I just need to have a clear mind and write down my ideas first.

    Most were given away to our friends for Christmas gifts!! Most of our friends are poke obsessed as we are!!!!

    He is a cute little fluff XD!!

    I really want to decorate my room too! I’ve been here 6 months and I feel like it’s just me shoving boxes into places they can fit. Show us your decorations please πŸ™‚ I imagine getting really inspired from you ^^

    Aww your Tomo looks so cute outdoors, he does look like he could be a wild cat.

    @Jessica, So far only the living room and kitchen are done, we need to do our office then bedroom. I am so bad at things like this though haha so lots of pinning from Pinterest!

    He wishes he was but we are keeping a close eye on him while he hangs out with us outside!

    Ah I love decorating our house with Christmas decors too! I love putting up the Christmas tree but since I usually work overtime and have a messed up sleep schedule and body clock I wasn’t able to help in decorating our house last Christmas. Being organized is included with my new year to-do list too since I don’t really make resolutions.

    I super love your notebook! Super cute!! I love your pokemon plushie collection!!! Hahaha, I saw Tomo’s video on instagram!! He is such an adorable fat cat!!

    Happy new year to you and your family btw!! πŸ™‚

    @Pam, To-Do list is a good way of calling it! So far I have knocked out a few things on my list!

    He is super cuddly and huge XD

    Thank you so much!!! <3

    Decorating is always the most fun part of moving somewhere! Yet, also tiring :/ lol good luck with getting more furniture and the whole decorating process, I’m sure it will turn out nicely~

    P.S. your cat is so cute omg ;~;

    @Nina, I think a trip to Ikea will get me motivated!

    haha he is super huge so seeing him outside running is great!!!
