New Year Resolutions

I'm keeping the same resolutions that I made for 2012 and going to continue to work on them for 2013.

1.  Eat Healthy


2.  Think Before Speaking


3.  Stop Worrying and Be More Postive

Friday's Fancies: New Year's Eve

For this Friday's Fancies I have put together two potential New Year's Eve looks.  One is a bit more edgy (once again bringing out my current obsession with the idea of faux leather pants) and one is a bit more glam. 

Last NYE I wore my sequin tank (from Old Navy) to go out to dinner and a movie with a friend.  I was the only person in Red Robin (I know, I know, so sad) in sequins.  But I did dress the top down with skinny jeans.  I don't particularly like NYE (something bad usually happens - so anymore I either don't do anything or I don't do anything major - like go to Red Robin and a movie) but I do love any reason to dress up.

A Couple of Christmas Pics

Here are a few iPhone pics I took on Christmas Day at my sister's house.

This guy was ready for his close up.

I started to feel like a bovine paparazzo.

He really wanted to get close.


So excited to get this cookbook from my Mom. 

Love this bird necklace from my sister.  It has all the words from the Emily Dickinson poem, Hope.
 
"Hope" is the thing with feathers—
That perches in the soul—
And sings the tune without the words—
And never stops—at all—

And sweetest—in the Gale—is heard—
And sore must be the storm—
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm—

I've heard it in the chillest land—
And on the strangest Sea—
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb—of Me.

Pinteresting Wednesday: Snow

It's snowing here...they are calling it a blizzard. 

Luckily, I am able to work from home. 


Snow is only pretty if you don't have to go out in it and before it gets all dirty.

Or if you are in a ski lodge with a hot drink beside a fire.


I would much, much rather be here.
