Happy New Year!

Happy 2013, friends! Here's to a year full of family, friends, and lots of happiness!
This year I've made a list of 13 New Year's Resolutions (in no particular order):

1. Give up all soda.
2. See a New Orleans Saints game at the Super Dome.
3. Move.
4. Travel to a brand new place.
5. Join the Daughters of the American Revolution.
6. Read 12 books.
7. Lose 30 pounds.
8. Celebrate big for my 30th birthday.
9. See a real fall with colorful autumn leaves.
10. Go on a spending freeze every other month.
11. Advance my career.
12. Reach 1200 GFC followers.
13. Learn to stand up for myself.

Decent, eh? What have you planned to give up, or to do, to better yourself in 2013?

Perception Is Everything

Looks like an awesome list! And I know where you can see some magnificent fall foliage! ;) Have a wonderful new year!

Great list but I would say lucky number 13 is the most important! You go girl! Fall is very pretty in New England so if you come let me know and I'll show you around! Oh and I have some friends here who are in DAR (I don't really get it but they seem to like it).

Great resolutions! #1 is so great to do especially if you're trying to lose weight. You better celebrate BIG for your 30th... I know I plan too :)

Wonderful list! We have a lot of the same things! :) Happy New Year!

Claire Kiefer said...

Really hope I get to join you for that Dome game!! :)

A spending freeze every other month is a fantastic idea. I need to develop a budget in a serious way.

Also need to lose 30 pounds . . . keep me posted on what you're doing! My diet starts today (even though it's terribly hard cause there is leftover pizza in the fridge, ugh).

Those are great things to accomplish this year!
Happy new year!

Happy new year! This is such a great list. I think the DAR would be awesome! I can't wait to see you cross these off this year!

Allison said...

I love all of these! They're doable and realistic - and you're determined enough that I'm sure you'll stick with them! (Giving up soda becomes way easy after only a bit too).
And you're welcome to come to NYC next fall and visit! :)
Happy 2013, sweet friend! xox

Hey there! Happy New Year! OK, now that I have seen a game at the Superdome I say that YOU HAVE TO GO! It was awesome! I don't think I told you but after the game we ended up at a club where I met Jahri Evans (#73 - huge boy!). And then we went to another club where I ordered drinks next to Lance Moore (so cute) was was too sober to talk to him but later in the night went up to Jimmy Graham and introduced myself and shook his hand. His was really nice and even cuter in person. A bunch of the guys were there Vilma, Sproles, Thomas. I don't think we will ever get that chance again. It was insane!!

These are great resolutions... very well rounded! This is making me think about coming up with my own list! Good luck keeping them!!

Sami said...

I know how you can cross two off the list at the same time.. Travel to Denver and we can go crazy for your 30th! Blog Party! :)

Oh, My Darling said...

Happy 2013! I love the idea of 13 resolutions in this new year. One of mine is to get back into blogging, and I'm excited to start reading your posts again!
