Thanks and Giving!

Wow - I am so proud to say that I have received two blog awards this week!!! How awesome is that? The wonderful Magnolia Belle presented me with the Kreativ Blogger award (one that I've been secretly wanting for a while now!!!) Thank you for thinking I'm creative!!!!

I'd like to pass this award to my sweet friend Molly, at Happi Together. She truly is one of the most creative and amazing people I know! Check out her blog!

...and the Proximity award from Liza at Life with a Dive and a Princess. Thank you so very much for this special award!"This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!"

I pass this award to:

Erin at Blue-Eyed Bride (So happy for you and I think this is probably one of the few awards you don't already have!!!)
Some Like it Southern (Happy birthday to you!!!)
Muffy Martini (Sorry you're having such a bad day!! Hope this makes it a little better.)
Cathe at Just Something I Made (Congrats on being a guest blogger - that is soooo awesome and I'm jealous! Also visit her site and read her story about her husband and vote for him - it is sooooo sweet!) Congratulations!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
