welcome 2012 - better late than never...


Where did December go? Remember being a kid and it seemed like Christmas would NEVER get here? Maybe it’s a sign that I’m aging at a rapid pace, but man, it flew in and out to me.

I am going to admit something to you guys: I hate new years. Not New Year’s Eve, a new year. I know everyone always says they can look ahead with fresh perspective, think about all the good things that could happen and all the stuff they are looking forward to. Well, perhaps it’s my anxious nature, but I can’t help but think about all that bad things that will/could happen. I’m not going to run through the list that’s in my head; trust me, you don’t want to hear it. Plus, that’s not the operation I’m running here.

Instead, I’ve decided to make a list of things I’m looking forward to in the next few months or so. I can’t think too far past spring, so forgive my lack in forward-thinking.

The Civil Wars concert January 10

MK and I are going to see the Civil Wars in Memphis next week, and I am so jazzed! You might remember my post about them a few weeks ago. One of my resolutions for 2012 is to go to more concerts, and I think this is a great start. YAY!

My sister’s wedding January 14

I can’t believe my little sister will be a Mrs. soon! I still think of her as the little pipsqueak that I used to steal french fries from. Sweet tee, Harris. You would.

Joy the Baker’s cookbook – out February 28!

I cannot wait for this. I was so disappointed to find out that it wouldn’t be out before Christmas, but now I’m glad so I can look forward to it! I love a cookbook.

Making my master bedroom presentable

Ever since we moved into our house, I have closed the door to our bedroom whenever we have company. I finally picked out the color palette for the room, and I’m so ready to start getting stuff together. It will be so nice to have pretty bedding and curtains on the windows and coordinating bedside tables! Oh my!

What are your feelings on a new year? What are you looking forward to in 2012?
