Farewell, 2012. Cheers to 2013!

[via]
There's so much I want to say in this blog, ie a recap of 2012 and a preview of what's to come in 2013. But guess who didn't manage her time wisely today? This girl! Waaaay too long in bed this morning catching up on the interweb, followed by an episode of Homeland, a jog we drove 40 minutes there and back to complete, and a last-minute grocery run. Now we're rushing around to prepare for tonight's festivities.

Thus, I leave you with my favorites words of the last year, and a little promise to myself...

This last image is my challenge for 2013: to think, act, and live a positive way (and also to drink more water--I definitely need to drink more water!). Right now I'm reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, and it's inspiring me to create a project of my own! I hope to share more with you soon; it starts tomorrow!

Final words of 2012, just something more to think about from Gandhi:

Thank you, readers, for keeping up with me this past year! Having this blog is something fun and creative for me to play with so hearing that y'all read it and enjoy it as much as I do really means a lot to me! I hope that you get the pleasure of ringing in the New Year with those you love and give/receive all the hugs and kisses your heart desires at midnight! 

Be safe, be loved, be filled with joy! Tonight and always ♥ 

Cheers to another year of great happiness, good health, and thrilling misadventures!

Oahu (Again): Vacay Pics Part 3



Last installment of our Hawaii vacay pics! Since Brett made me go ziplining, I made him go sailing! He gets really seasick, so he was not a happy camper. Thankfully, the waves were mild and we had a great time! Thanks again, Momma, for the sunset booze cruise tickets! :)



Random fisherman standing on a rock or something



He ended up having a great time and even saw mermaids

Tanner's Christmas pageant! Isn't my family beautiful?

He was sooo nervous :(

Pau! Playtime with sister.


Lunch with the whole family...

Followed by shave ice. Baba keeps Kaitlin warm :)

Night out with the besties 


Missing Kristina: ENT


I was in bad shape the next day, at Tanner's 4th birthday party. Brett started calling me Auntie Palu. 

Happy birthday, sweet pea! ♥

Love these!

The girls, going for a cruise. Peyton's face is the best!


Meeting Brady for the first time!

Dayne makes everybody cry

Last day with my munchkins :'(

Last night out with my buddies

Last day with my favorites, Kari and Mia &hearts

Mia is mesmerized by my Momma!


Got a picture in the Honolulu Pulse photo gallery with the gorgeous Bamboo Sky crew, Tiffany, Shane, and Shauna!
And fin! So blessed to have a wonderful cast of characters in my life. And sooo thankful to Husband for arranging and planning the whole trip! I'm sooo lucky. I love that boy.

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve! Hubby and I are spending it with a few friends in Raleigh and ringing in 2013 proper: with a big fat kiss! I hope you do the same with your special someone!
