Happy New Year!!

So, did you make it to see the clock strike midnight? 
I did, but the kids did not LOL

I said a soft "Happy New Year" to Joe, and he went straight to bed after the big shiny ball dropped in Times Square. I passed out shortly after....and forgot to blog 0.o
Then I woke this morning to realize I had a couple other items I had forgot to get checked off my list before the ball dropped 0.o
 I sure hope my scatter brainedness today is not a sign of things to come. I have a hard enough time keeping .............

Anyways, it's a new year! Fresh outlook, goals and resolutions. Ah. 

Last year I chose the word "Achieve" to live 2012 by. I did that in so many ways and I don't think I could have picked a better word. I achieved a lot that I had set out to do, and some things I didn't know that I wanted to achieve. Last year turned out be pretty darn awesome and gave me some wonderful lessons in life that I hope to continue to grow on this year. 

My word for the year - Shine
It may sound odd, but I want to see the bright side in everything. I want to shine my brightest. I want to be on my best foot and be proud of all that I accomplish (No matter how small they may be) 
I want to add more glitz to my wardrobe (I love glitter, what can I say ;)
Most of all, I want 2013 to shine for me and my family!

Resolutions.......Not this year. I make them every year and it's like I set myself up for failure. They seem like rules, and I am a rule breaker. 
Instead this year, I just hope to do everything that I can possibly do and be happy with the outcome. 

Since I am severely late in getting day 8 here, it is a second chance item that I will keep up here on the blog as a free gift. You might already have this if you are a newsletter subscriber.

Thanks for the gift! Shine is a much better word than mine - Organize. Shine sounds like fun! Organize sounds like work. I bet you end up shining a lot more than I do organizing! :D
Happy New Year!

Thank you Liz for day 8. Good luck with your SHINE. :) Sacramento had a shooting of 5 people (2dead, 3 injured)so, I only got to see a little bit of Carson Daly's New Years Show. They cancelled the fireworks there. Sac is 1 hour away from me. Always something :( Have a Happy New Year.

Happy New Year, Liz! Thank you so much for these great templates. Seriously, every day has been extra special! Shine is a great word for the new year. I haven't ever picked one word for the year...I'm terrible at decisions ;)

Liz I LOVE the word you chose "Shine". It's absolutely perfect. I don't know if you've heard this song before, Shine by Brian melo. He's a Canadian artist from the town I was born in. We saw him in concert in November and he played this song. I love it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txDcg5oLqHQ

"Shine"

Every corner you turn
Walls are closing in
All the lights have changed from green to red
You're grounded by the weather
Nowhere to take flight
Somehow your wings got broken
Your hands are tied

But can't you feel it in the air
The moment has arrived
So why don't you

[Chorus]
Shine, cause I've been waiting for you to try
Set your sights high
And elevate yourself to the sky
Just rise and shine

Your shadow is behind you
When the sun's in your face
Your story isn't finished
Just turn the page
It's time to wake up
It's time to shake it up
The chains can be cut and thrown away

And can't you see it everywhere
The moment is alive
So why don't you

[Chorus]
Shine, cause I've been waiting for you to try
Set your sights high
And elevate yourself to the sky
Just rise and shine

Anticipating
I've been waiting
The moment has arrived
For you to
Shine
Just shine

Thanks so much for the templates. Just grabbing them now. Got busy and forgot to visit yesterday. Thanks so much and Happy New Year to you and your family.
