52 Pix – Pepper

New Year's Resolutions? Yay or Nay?

Usually my answer would be, Nay. Not this year! This year my list is chock full of resolutions! Honestly, I like the term "goals" much better.

A few years ago, one of my resolutions goals was to take a photo every day, and post it on a special page. It didn't work out to well. This year I have modified it a bit. My goal is to take a photo each week, and post it here.  I am calling it 52 Pix. At the end of 2013 there will be 52 pix (photos) in that category. That is my goal.

I am starting the 52 Pix project with a photo of Pepper.

Okay, a part of Pepper. I love seeing the heart on her nose.

Join in on the fun! Just leave a comment here that you plan to participate. If you don't have a blog use Instagram with the hashtag #52pix. Not on Instagram? (you really should be) Email the pix. I can't wait to see your pix!!

New Year’s Resolutions? Or Not?

I don't like making New Year's Resolutions.  I just don't.

If I am going to be honest about it, it is because I don't keep them.  Really, who does?

I set goals this year.

I feel confident enough that I can reach my goals, so I will share them with you.  Usually, I won't share them because I am afraid I won't keep them and then everyone else will know I didn't keep them. 

Not this year!!

This year, I am putting it all out there.

Goal 1: Is to read the Bible in one year.  I have started this several times, and failed several times.  Not this time.

Goal 2: Is to lose weight.  Not just through out the year, but by March.  I am going to Hawaii in March, and I want to be able to fit into some of my cuter clothes. 

Two goals! 

That is all for now, but I might set more throughout the year. 

How about you?

Goals? Or Resolutions? (Yes, I know…they are kind of the same thing. Just play along.) 🙂

Happy New Year!!

Shout Outs

Linkin to You

A while back I had a little cookbook giveaway, and I asked people what their favorite quotes were.  I expected 15 entries or so.  Then Mrs. Ree re-tweeted my tweet and I got 1678 entries.  I loved it!  You see, I had a plan.  I wanted to see where you are, what you write, and photograph, etc.  I wanted to branch out in this blogging world. 

I am not making "New Year's Resolutions" per say, but I do plan on being a more social blogger.  I have been coming home, blogging and watching television or whatever else I need to do around the house.  I need to work on being more social. 

I am not a social person.  I like driving home knowing that I will be spending the time at home with McD and no one else.  I am not the social butterfly I could be.  I am not saying I am coming out of my cocoon or anything, but I am going to try.  :)  We started the year off just right for me to meet my goal.  We went to ring in the New Year with some friends and their family.  Some of their family brought friends, so it was a social event in my book.  :) 

So, the first (or second if you count the party we went to) step is going back to the 1678 comments on that one particular post, and linking to a few of you that were so kind to leave a comment or 20.  Yeah, there was a prize, and there will be again on Friday, January 8th, but it still made me feel pretty good.  I may just ask Ree to RT the contest again.  After all, it is her book that I will be giving away.

Sharyn has great photos, stories, ideas, organizational skills, etc.  You really need to check out her New Years Resolutions post.  WOW!  

Her favorite quote was:

We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails – Dolly Parton

Pretty good one if you ask me.

What an interesting name!  This is not my first visit to her blog, I really enjoy reading here.  She has great photos, stories, and recipes.  Please check her out. 

Her favorite quote was:  (It is one of my absolute favorites!)

Sorry there are only 3 today, but I am supposed to be getting ready to leave.  We are headed to my grandparents house to celebrate Christmas.  You see, last year (hee hee) we had the Blizzard of the decade, or even the century in Oklahoma.  Some places got 14.1 inches of snow in one day, highways were closed, people were stuck on the sides of the roads, in their homes, at work, etc.  It was nuts!  So, we decided to wait until the roads were better to drive the 2 hours to granny's house.  We are safety oriented. Not really so much, but it sounded pretty good.  🙂

I didn't get photos of our Christmas Day celebration, but I will today.

Have a great weekend!
