New Year, New Beginnings

I promise I'm not getting sappy. There's enough of "I'm looking forward to the blessings of 2013" or "2013 has to be better than 2012" on Facebook. And I'm under no illusions that I'll actually be a better blogger this year, especially since classes start back in 2 weeks.

The upside? It's my last semester and then I'll graduate with an MA Ed. with Literacy Specialist endorsement. I've spoken with my boss at work and there are plans in the works for me and my degree, so I'll hopefully be able to do what I love and be compensated both in hours and pay. Can't beat that with a stick (What kind of phrase is that?).

Anyway, I like to think of this as not just a decorating blog, though the few posts of late would probably beg to differ. I try to keep this as a "life" blog--yes, decorating our first home, but also the general comings and goings of Husband, myself, and our adorable puppy dog. Though, the puppy dog does a much better job keeping track of that.

In the spirit of life updates, here's a super-brief recap of the end of our year.

We hosted both sides of the family for Thanksgiving, again. Since I'm a glutton for punishment apparently.


The table

Waiting for food...or digesting. Who knows.

We celebrated our third Christmas in our house.

(sorry it's blurry)

Mister waited patiently for Santa Paws at my parents' house.

Mister and his cousin, Walt, begged for treats at Husband's grandparent's house for "calendar Christmas"

Mister received twice as many Christmas cards as we did.

And we rang in the new year in style.

See? Super quick. Be sure to watch the Rose Parade today. A local high school (Lafayette) is performing and one of our clients and the child of a tutor are both performing!
