Just say Yes

Happy New Year and Happy First Day of Blogging!! I have absolutely no clue what I am doing and absolutely no idea how I got involved! Actually I do – I recall over lunch in NYC after a fab Make Up Show and lots of new purchases my sister said I want to start a Blog. Not wanting to be left out I recall (somewhat) saying “Oh I can help you” – seems easy (not) and after a minute or so Sisters in Suburbia was born! I truly hem and haw over every single decision I make (debilitating) but this decision was easy, perhaps because I have my sister to do it with and someone to keep me accountable! She is the brains behind this operation and I am just along for the ride!

I am really hoping to bring some fun stuff to this blog! After an absolute nightmare of a year I am beyond ready to start this year off right! 2015 please be kind to me! This will be a year of saying Yes. I had this epiphany about 5 years ago – I told myself to say Yes to everything! Do you want to kill your own Turkey? Gut it? Defeather it? Absolutely Yes! Tara was my partner in crime and no we were not able to kill the Turkey ourselves (it was horrifying) but we did gut and defeather it and quite honestly it was the best turkey I have ever eaten! Do you want to chop your hair off and cut bangs? Yes! Do you want to go out on a date with a guy a month (yes he waited a whole month) after meeting him for five minutes in a bar? Yes and quite frankly one of the best Yeses I ever made (other then Will you Marry Me) as that guy is now my husband. So a New Year and a whole lot of new Yeses! Up first is Hot Yoga, something I have always wanted to try! Tara is not thrilled, wondering like most people, if she will die from the heat, but I am confident that she and I will survive! Here’s to sweating it out in the very near future!!

    Love ‘just say yes’ shauna…great kick off!!! And of course I love the part about meeting the guy for 5 minutes in a bar and saying yes to going out with him a month later. Send love to Uncle Pete, from Bella, Lili and I.
    I’ve done hot yoga once many years ago, it was great. Where are you planning to go? I’d love to join, maybe I can get Michelle and Linds to join too.
    Continue to say yes…life’s amazing adventure are a yes away!!! Best of luck to you and Tara. XOXO
