Wrap up and Resolutions

We definitely had a December to remember.

We started off the month with our annual trip to Silver Dollar City to see the lights.
I have said it before, and I will say it again...if you ever have the opportunity to go to Silver Dollar City in December do it!!  It truly is spectatular and it will just make you happy, I promise!!

We decorated gingerbread houses

and checked out our competition around the city

not bad, but I still think ours was better.

We went to the Wild Lights at the Zoo

had a Christmas tea with our American Girl Doll

baked some cookies

went ice skating

saw Santa at the symphony, and heard beautiful music

and had a great holiday.

Now that the decorations are down, the kids are back in school, and the new year has started it's time to work on some resolutions

*Read, read, read-this is on my list every year but the benefits from reading; knowledge, vocabulary, intellectual curiosity, improved concentration, I mean its almost like free therapy.  I get my best recommendations from friends, here is what I hope to read in 2016

any other recommendations??

*travel every change I get
Don't you love a resolution that is pretty damn fabulous.  I have been working very hard on this one and have a few trips already lined up

*Try one new restaurant a month- I feel like I already do this, but now that it is official I really have to dine out a lot.  It is a win win for everyone, I get a great meal and the chefs/owners are getting business, just doing what I can to support my city.

Looks like I am good through April

*Have one on one dates with my children and my hubby
family is everything, right!!

and one last one for good measure
*go to the gym- does it count if I already do this??  Is it still a resolution??  
I am not going to lie, I am in it for the cute clothes

Happy 2016


  1. I can't believe I never commented on this post! It looks like you had such a fun Christmas season again. You inspire me to get out and do more during December.

    Can you believe January is almost over already? Bring on spring! (OK I'm getting ahead of myself).

    I hope things are going well for you. I think of you so often. I miss you and hope to see you in 2016!
