Happy New Year Everyone!


I had an amazing holiday!

I got a nice long break from work and got to spend time with friends and family! We played a lot board games, Settlers of Catan, Walking Dead, and Millionaire Monopoly. It’s Richard and I’s favorite thing to do!

I got a lot of new goodies too for Christmas! A crimper (or more of a waiver – I love the look it gives my hair)  a Kindle fire, and a new Coach purse.(mine is a different color than the one shown, mine is white with different colored C’s.) What did you get for Christmas?

So last year I had this friend who said that he used to define his years by a word like, Hope, or Change etc. I always thought that was  good idea and then I saw this on Casey Weigand’s blog. It only made me confirm that instead of doing New Year Resolution’s, which like I have said before, I don’t do (I like to do goals whenever I feel like I need to.) I should pick a word instead.

This year I am going to pick the word action. follow through, carry out, complete, achieve.. What I mean is to actually do the things that I say I am going to do, or things that I have thought about doing but never do. This will be the year of doing! I am going to go take that test to get another teaching subject under my belt and I am going to actually go get that teaching job instead of just wishing it away. I am going to follow through, on other goals, go to the gym more, get in shape, cook at home more, get out of debt. These are goals that I have already set, (some long ago) but have never completed or finished! So – those of you that know me, I will need your help to finish and stay on task!  Maybe if you see me, ask me how it’s going and what actions I have taken. Help me stay accountable!

  What word would you like to use to define the next year of your life? I would love to know!

Christmas Lights!

This weekend Richard and I went to look at Christmas lights. Also, did I tell you that his son came with us? Did I tell you he has son?

Well he does…and he is super cute and a really funny kid!

I actually knew his son before I ever met Richard…but that’s a story for another day… right now I just want to share the Christmas lights!

We went to a little town called Chickasha where they have the Festival Lights. It’s kind of a big deal. The line was so long, but it was worth it!

 There were animals to pet, hot cocoa and cinnamon rolls to eat. Santa was there and of course all the lights:

I think it should become like a tradition or something!

P.S. Sorry about the grainy pictures they were from our phones!
