Happy New Year's! (Link up your New Year's posts:)



News Years Resolution: My resolution last year was to start keeping a to do list and working on it every day, which I totally forgot was my resolution but I actually did and it made my life a lot easier. It's the resolution that just keeps on giving, because I can put new goals on there whenever I think of them. I have everything from "lose the rest of the weight!" to "clean the hamster cage weekly" on there, and it's become part of my routine to try and work on the list daily. This year, my resolution is to be positive. It seems cheesy and something that shouldn't require a resolution to do, but it's something I really think I need to make a priority.

And now, onto my recap of 2013 in the form of a ginormous photo dump!



We've had a crazy year. There were some really rough parts (Kaylee was seriously ill with a brain infection, we lost my grandma to cancer and shingles, I struggled with Bi-polar/depression) but also some amazing parts (we had a lot of special moments with my grandma, we had fun times with family and friends, I got to watch my sweet girls grow and learn, I lost 50 pounds, Kaylee is on her way to a full recovery). I'm thankful we survived and that the hard parts brought us closer together as a family. I am really looking forward to the next year! We will be moving, Kaylee will turn 5, Brynna will turn 2, we will celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary, I will turn 27, and who knows what else will happen!!

Do you have a resolution? What were your favorite parts of 2013? If you have a New Years related post, link it up below! :D

Been with you through this whole year and will say I am so happy to hear that Kaylee is pretty fully recovered, but still felt so bad about your grandma. But did love seeing all the wonderful photos from this past year and wishing you a very, Happy New Year and wonderful 2014!! :)

You certainly have had quite the year... congratulations on losing the 50 pounds, that is awesome!!!

Other than my weight loss, my year was not so great either but I think 2014 will be a year about me embracing the change instead of fighting against it...

I hope you have a fabulous 2014 and beyond :)

I forgot to mention that holy cow- that is a lot of pictures! It must have taken you forever to pick out favorites and format them so perfectly. Loved them all!

Thanks for stopping by my friend. Wow, you sure did have one heck of a year, but watching Bryanna grow was fun, and to see your other daughter get better was fantastic, and what you did to your hair for her only a another mother would understand. God bless you for that. I wish you and your family a Healthy, Happy & Prosperous New Year! hugs, Marie

Hey Girl, thanks for stopping by. Forgot to ask how was your Christmas and New Years! Great I hope, and especially that special little girl of yours, how is she doing? Much better I hope. She is in my prayers for sure. We have the plow trucks going down our street now and the snow is still coming. So you better get your snow shovel out it may come your way too! Hugs and give those girls some hugs too! ;)
