Finally Friday!

Hip hip hooray! Friday is finally here and the weekend is about to begin! Did this week seem especially long for you as well? If so, you could be suffering from what is commonly referred to as "the post- holiday blues". Cold weather, taking down decorations, having to go back to work can all be considered a "let down" after feeling the rush and anticipation of the holiday season. Sure while we are in the thick of it, we complain about the holidays, but now instead of gorging in treats and holiday cheer, we have to stick to our New Year's resolutions and embrace the winter. Yuck. If you are thinking, "what am I going to look forward to now?" like we are, perhaps it is time to start filling up that calendar and create fun goals for yourself. Here are some ideas in case your mind is drawing a blank on anything "fun":

* Does your home feel bare without the decorations? Re-decorate! This does not need to be a costly venture, but making a few changes to create a cozy, warm environment for yourself might make all the difference.

*Make hot cocoa, eat a treat (Gasp! Are we only allowed to eat them in certain months?) and watch one of your favorite flicks? Feeling like you want to "get away" but can't afford the plane ticket? Make a virgin pina colada and take in a movie that takes place somewhere warm- not a vacation, we know, but at least you will have a "mental" trip for a few hours.

* Plan a winter party! Big shin-dig or small get-together, dress up and celebrate the chill. For a fun, quieter evening whip up some yummy appetizer and play some silly board games. If you are looking to have a bigger fiesta ask friends to bring something so you don't have to worry about catering everything.

* Create a fun goal for yourself like learning a new language or saving enough money to take a trip somewhere special.

Have a great weekend!
