Good morning and Happy New Year!
It's official, 2013 is here.
So grab a cup of coffee and let's chat about this whole brand new year thing...and how you
rung in the new year last night...and whatever else is on your mind.
I talked yesterday about our plans for last night but then Eric ended up working later than we expected
so instead we went out for Mexican, came home, watched some NYE coverage on TV, let the kids do
the silly string(huge mess), made kiddie cocktails + grown-up cocktails....and that was our night.
Believe it or not, Wyatt stayed up until midnight, Charlotte opted for bed around 10:30, and Eric went
to bed around 11:50. I went to bed shortly after midnight myself.
Not super exciting but it was a good night.
So, what did you do to celebrate New Year's Eve?
Do you love it, is it just any other day... do you go out on the town or stay in and celebrate?
I have to say that although I like New Year's just fine I cringe when I see all of the celebrating in
Times Square. You could not pay me enough money to stand in that crowd all day in the cold...
where are the bathrooms? What do people do?
If we were really meeting for coffee this morning, I would tell you....
that my list of holiday failures this year is quite long and one of them is that I never took Christmas
pictures of the kids- so I was determined to take a decent picture of them together for the New Year.
So, we got bundled up and went out in the backyard yesterday morning and I think I got a few good ones.
Just look at those blue eyes!
I started my little list last week of goals for this year....
I have been thinking and writing and trying to figure out my One Little Word for 2013.
I'm not quite sure yet but hopefully it will come to me soon.
I love the idea of a word to focus on throughout the year and Goals or Intentions as opposed to resolutions.
To me, resolutions are: "I will lose 40 pounds" or "I will not_____" ....which to me pretty much equals immediate failure,
so instead small goals seem to work much better for me.
What about you?
Goals, intentions, a Word, resolutions...tell me what you do and your thoughts on the New Year?
Read more about the idea behind One Little Word on Ali Edwards' blog, here.
Oh--and speaking of OLW, look at Lisa Leonard's awesome new Word Of The Year necklaces.
I LOVE these so much!!
How cool would it be to have one of these to wear with your *word* on it?
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful first day of this brand new year.
I am excited and hopeful, as always, and will be back later this week to talk more about my WORD,
my goals, intentions and hopes for 2013.
OH! and wanna win an adorable fox COFFEE MUG just like mine up there?
I bought an extra one after Christmas on the Target clearance shelf and thought it would be fun to give
one away at our first coffee date of the new year today.
All you have to do is leave a comment here by Friday January 4, that's it.
You don't have to link up for coffee today, tweet it or any other silly stuff.... although I would love
it if you did join me for coffee, just leave a comment here.
