So, tonight I’m in the blogging mood! And first off I just want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR! lol.

My new year has started on a good note. I run this fan page on Facebook which is the 365 Day Photo Challenge and seriously in 24-36 there was over 300 likes….I couldn’t believe it that everyone that “liked” the page was wanting to start something for their new year’s resolutions. Now, I’m not a big fan of resolutions, because normally I’m not a big fan of making promises to yourself that you aren’t going to keep, but as long as these people did this I’m kind of a believer now. I actually had to restart my challenge because I always found a reason to not be a part of it or to give up but I’m making myself keep with it.

I guess to start I should probably start with my new years. I got to spend it with my hubby, and his cousin Jason and his girlfriend Katie (whom I love). We watched the pre-countdown shows, as well as the actual countdown and just had a pretty great time. Our friend Brooke came by for a little bit and it was just pretty awesome. It was one of the best times I’ve had in a long time.

And when we did our champagne toast we did a “whoever can drink theirs the fastest wins the rest of what’s in the bottle”…and of course I just wanted to be cool and have the bottle so I chugged my champagne (bad idea lol) but hey I won the bottle!

I'm a lush πŸ™‚

I was so happy to be able to see Brooke, I haven’t seen her in forever and I of course had to get a picture with her. The lighting in my house sucks so we took this in the kitchen bahahahah

LOVE my bestie!

And the rest of the night and pictures kind of speak for themselves, we even let our little man stay up and give me a kiss at midnight πŸ™‚

Kisses for my little man!


And then on Sunday my daughter came home from her dad’s and she got to open all of the gifts that Santa Sappingfield and family got for her for Christmas. This next picture is my absolute favorite cause she looks so adorable and it is the cutest gift ever! She has a pillow pet lady bug that goes with us but this is just TOO adorable.

And I also made this one resolution, to go back to church EVERY Sunday. We have been very distracted with our move, and also my husband has been working weekends EVERY weekend so we haven’t even had the opportunity to go, but this past Sunday we went and seriously I got this amazing shot of the skyline. And it made me believe even more, that only our Heavenly Father can create such beauty.

Beauty on HE can create


But I hope that everyone else had an amazing new year like I did. I am so thankful, Β and grateful. πŸ™‚
