HAPPY 2013

Hello & Happy 2013 beautiful people,

I know we are 15 days into the new year and I am kinda late on the wishes but hey....better late than never right? 

So with that being said I thought I would write a post and just check in and see how everyone's new year has started off. Did you make resolutions? Have you kept them thus far? How did you bring in the new year? Do you have special family traditions you do?

As for me, I spent New Years Eve the same way I have done for the past 3 years, I go to church or what some may know as "Watch Night Service". It may seem boring to some but for me, I feel like I have started my year off right if I am in the house of the Lord. Okay, enough preaching :) usually I go home after service, stay up or wake up early, drive to my "family's" house and we have dinner. I say "family" because they aren't really my family, they are kind of like my adopted family. It is one of my dearest friends that I have known for quit some time before even moving to So-Cal, we met shortly after my mom passed, and we met online, when Myspace was poppin back in the day...ya'll remember that?? Well they had groups, like social groups and her and I were in one together, got to chatting and the rest is history. When I moved out here I lived about 40 minutes away from her and we finally met in person, it was like we were always sister, so she's my big sister and I am her little sister, I call her mom, mom and her dad, dad, I call her sister, sister and so on and so forth so they are like my adopted family. For about 4 or so years on and off I have been going up to Bellflower to eat at my other "sisters" house, but this year I missed out :( I didn't wake in time and some other things transpired but needless to say I felt a little left out. I was kind of sad because it is something I have done for the past 3 years consistently. 

However, another friend of mine told me she was making Gumbo and that I was invited over. She didn't know the traditions I do or anything like that, and since I missed my normal things I decided to head over there. I ate with her family and it was absolutely amazing. Delicious food, a little champagne to toast the New Year, a ton of laughs and just a great time. 

I never make resolutions because I ALWAYS break them so I got tired of talking about the same ol things. I am excited for this year and then again I am not, I have said the past 3 or so years that "this is MY year" and at the end of every year I look back and say that was foolishness it wasn't my year so this year I am done saying it. If it is it is and if it isn't it isn't. What does it mean to say this is my year? I would love to think I will experience financial freedom this year, I would be ecstatic to finally have my husband find me, I would overjoyed to have a child, I would be elated to finally be in the career I want to be in, etc. etc. Is that what constitutes it being "someones year"? Getting everything they want or hoped for? I don't know but I'm sick of saying it. We'll just have to see what's in store for me....

So enough about me, tell me how your New Years went and how things are shaping up for you. Excited about 2013?

Greetings Everyone and HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

I hope you all have had a great first week of the brand new year and that you started your new year off right....whatever that means for you :) Here is my first Sunday Social of the year 2013 with many more to come....enjoy

Sunday Social
1. Do you plan to change any of your eating habits in the new year?
Uhh NO LOL....I do plan to do a few fasts' this year but not really changing my eating habits. Well now that I am writing this I may try and eat more, the one meal a day isn't really cutting it :( so maybe I will work on eating a little more throughout the day.
2. Any workout tips to get us back in shape after the Holidays?
If you get workout tips then you must use them throughout the year, its not a "lets get in shape after the holidays and when the next holiday rolls around lets pig out again" what would be the point?? Best workout tip.....MOVE, start walking, take a walk during your lunch break, if you get an hour walk the first or last half hour of your lunch and then eat something the next half hour. Just keep moving....
3. What is your favorite thing you did over the Holidays?
Spending time with friends....Since I do not have family out here or much of it in general my friends are my family, so I traveled through So Cal and visited friends, did some shopping, went to my first comedy club and other fun fun

4. What is something you hope that you accomplish in 2013 that you did not in 2012?
Master this natural hair thing, lose a few pounds, hopefully meet my guy, travel, pay off or get out of debt. 
5. Name 3 things happening this year you are excited about and why.
I don't necessarily have anything planned this year so I am not excited about anything really. I hope I get to visit my hometown this year and see my grandmother, I hope to travel some and possibly get to a blog convention or something like that...that would be lovely. Basically I am gonna see what God has in store for me this year and what great things are yet to come..
Okay now it is your turn, so feel free to answer the questions, and don't forget to either grab my button, share, comment, subscribe and let me know you did so I can do the same for you.

Have a beautiful Sunday!!
