It’s New Year’s Eve!  Any big plans?


We will be ringing in the New Year in our home, just the way I like it. I’d much rather celebrate at home than out in a crowded restaurant/bar/party.  We have lots of junk food on tap and plan to have Dick Clark’s Rockin New Year’s Eve on in the background as we play card/board games that I will hopefully win.


Once upon a time I used to do a round up of my favorite cards & layouts of the year, however I can’t say I’ve done a whole lot in the 2nd half of 2013 so there isn’t much to choose from. But in the spirit of sharing favorites, I’m doing what I’ve seen several bloggers do and share moments/photos from the past year.

My nephew & godson Kaleb turned 1! Such an exciting and emotional day. The little guy had a rough start being 2 months premature so watching him grow has been an incredible blessing. I can’t believe how much he has grown since this picture!

April ~ Seeing Scotty McCreery in person. Incredible!!



May – My husband surprised me with NKOTB tickets for Valentine’s Day. Seeing NKOTB live was a teenage girl’s dream finally come true. I will admit to tearing up several times LOL. They were absolutely amazing and I would love to see them again!

June ~ Seeing my stepsister, Nancy. It had been about 6.5 years since she last visited here. 



July ~ My coworker (and friend) gave us tickets to a Red Sox/Yankees game. Another item checked off my bucket list!  Super exciting for Mike and I to see our teams play against each other! This moment was the first at bat for my team and Ellsbury hit a homer that went into our section. I was too busy taking pictures not realizing a ball went past me LOL!

October ~ THE RED SOX WON THE WORLD SERIES!!!!!!!!!! What an exciting season of baseball! I am anxiously awaiting Opening Day 2014!! (sorry for the blurry pic!)



November ~ Celebrating Thanksgiving with Kaleb, my sister, BIL and parents. It’s the first time in many years my sister and her family could join us.  Kaleb is in the high chair that my sister & I used. My mom saves everything LOL!
