After all that planning and looking at dresses, I ended up sick on New Year’s Eve. I’m not a big partier, but I like to get dressed up and go out to new restaurants or events. I had a sexy black dress and everything! Not nearly as hot as Mel’s dress, but hey it was still cute! Needless to say Shane and I ended up celebrating by lighting the fireplace for the first time in our new house. We watched Total Recall and had Ferraro’s Pizza delivered. We were in the bed before 10:00, and from there I welcomed in 2013 probably while coughing and sneezing all night. Oh well, it was actually quite nice. Probably one of the best New Year’s Eves I can remember. This is how I know I’m getting older. Before I know it, I’ll probably be calling the cops on our neighbors for having their music too loud.
I don’t usually make resolutions because I try to do the things I want or think I should do year-round (not that I actually do though,) but for some reason I’m inspired to this year. I hope to work harder, study harder, spend more time with my family and friends, take more vacations, eat better, workout more, go snowskiing more, go water skiing more, express my emotions better so people know how much they really mean to me, deep clean the house more, plant a garden, try more new restaurants, go swimming more in the summer, take my makeup off every night and last but certainly not least, don’t let people get to me and hurt my feelings as easily.l Nothing life altering, but still important to me nonetheless.
NOW TO THE GOOD PART!! I am doing another giveaway this week for the beautiful Ann Taylor Pave Bow Necklace pictured below. You notice you can only see me from the chest up in the picture. That’s because I’m sick and am wearing my pajama pants on the bottom half. Just kidding (or am I? Guess you’ll never know unless you drive to my house to bring me soup and hot chocolate. Hot chocolate cures colds, right??) The giveaway will start today and will run through this Friday, January 4 at 6:00pm CST. To enter just make sure you’re following my blog via GFC and leave me a comment below telling me what your New Year’s Resolution is (or isn’t if you aren’t making any.) Happy New Year!!
