The best laid plans...

...of mice and men often go astray.

Yup, that pretty much sums up our New Years Eve.

I did have best laid plans:

  • Make some yummy snacks
  • Watch New Years eve TV
  • Play games
  • I even had a neat thing I found on Pinterest where you have a new activity for each hour
  • Watch the ball drop
  • Bring in 2012 with a kiss from my hubby
But boy did those plans go astray...

I got sick!!

We spent Saturday morning enjoying family at my parent's house(my brother-in-law's parents, my grandparents, my parents, my sister, my brother-in-law, and my nephews). My Mom, as always, had an amazing spread. Breakfast burritos, fruit, donuts, juice - all of my favorites!!


I was not hungry at all!! So we went to lunch after and I ordered a salad but I was still not hungry! We got home and I took a 2 1/2 hour nap - Ryan pretty much had to pull me out of bed. I should have seen it coming.

We hung out a bit and I made two snacky foods. 'Lil smokies wrapped in bacon and taco cupcakes (recipe to follow - not for the smokies though, we decided they were awful!!)

But I hardly ate anything... (um hello me! get the hint right?)

9:30 rolled around and I got sick - maybe the flu, maybe something I ate? Still not sure. I will spare you the details but by 11:30 my belly was beyond empty and I was asleep.

No ball drop, no celebration, no kiss.

But I'm still excited for 2012 and actually am feeling very good today! I got my 2nd annual New Years Day massage (thanks Ryan for my Christmas present!) and have enjoyed spending a relaxing day with my hubby!

And as an added bonus I'm taking tomorrow off to watch Nebraska play in the Capital One Bowl! Go Huskers!

Happy 2012!!

Happy New Year

2011 has been a good year to us. We moved to a new place, made many great memories with family and friends, and continued to focus on our marriage.

But, I have to be honest...I am really excited for 2012. I mean, really! (Other than it meaning I have to turn 30). I have a good feeling this year will be especially good to us! We are hoping for some exciting changes and I am ready to take them on!

Here are some of my resolutions for 2012:

  • Continue to lose weight and start exercising!
  • Be a better wife, sister, daughter, and friend.
  • Continue my relationship with God - I think 2012 will be a year of strengthening, understanding and focusing on my faith!
  • Focus more on my career - I'm hoping to regain some passion!
  • Become more organized and keep my home in better condition.

There are more of course but these are some of the top resolutions I'm hoping to keep all through 2012!

So Happy New Year and have a fun time celebrating tonight!!

As for Ryan and I...we will be having some snacky foods, playing games, and hoping to make it to midnight! Ha!!
