Outta Here 2012

I am glad to see the end of 2012 even if it means the last couple days are spent at home sick. I am ready to see what 2013 will bring because it couldn't be as bad as the majority of 2012.

The best parts of 2012

  • Attending my first Mardi Gras.
  • Visiting LA for the first time.  
  • Learning a new system at work.
  • Starting back to school for a second degree.  

I put in work towards the one goal I made for myself.  But will admit this fall a lot of it started to fall apart.  I might not have been eating as well as I did most of the year but I started enjoying working out again.  Just need to get the two combined and I know it will make me feel much better.

How did everyone else do with achieving their goals for 2012?

Recapping Christmas & Birthday

Santa was good to me this year.  I got almost all of my wish list.  Granted I asked for two things from my family.

I got several new pieces of my Christmas dishes.  Granted I am not sure when I would use the gravy boat.

These I will use as the bowls that come with the place setting are pretty small.

These may or may not be used as I don't use my pasta bowls very often.

Now I won't have to worry about missing any of the Charlie Brown holiday specials.
I also got money and gift cards to Loft.

And for my birthday

It wasn't much of a surprise as my mother told me weeks ago I was getting another stem. I used some birthday money to buy a second one but I couldn't find any of the old fashioned glasses this year.

I got a few new baubles from Beth for Christmas and my birthday.  

The one gift I will cherish I forgot to take a picture of before putting it up.  I got an ornament with H & G's thumbprints turned into reindeer's.

Feeling a lot like Christmas

Last weekend was the lighting of the Christmas tree on the county courthouse square.

Aren't these fellas cute. I even got G to share is M&Ms.

Isn't the tree beautiful!

Santa even stopped by

I got a few shots from the parade. P & I were the Grinches who stole the parade. We went around telling people to stay out of the streets on the parade route.

Just a little something to make it through Tuesday.

Wish List

Everyone is bugging me for a wish list.  This has been really hard this year.  One thing for me is I can make a really long list each year and not feel any guilt at all.  After all everyone has two events to buy presents for.  I already know because mother totally slipped up and it was the only thing I told them but I am getting it.

I would love tickets to my first Ole Miss bowl game.

It is going to be his last tour and I hope I don't have to miss it. Who wants to go?

I am still in a bit of shock that after the last two rough seasons the Rebels are going bowling this year.  The rumors floating around all week as possibilities were Liberty Bowl, Music City Bowl, and BBVA Compass Bowl.  All in great southern cities and in driving distance.  I was getting excited looking at the dates of all three that maybe it would finally work out that I could go to a bowl game.  Especially with having New Year's Eve off work and one being on a Saturday.  I was so hoping for the Liberty Bowl because I could stay at home in my own bed and save a lot of money.  And would be easier to afford it and others to go with me.  But it was announced today that we got the
