It's a New Year!





1) learn Photoshop ASAP
2) try a Pilate and Spin class
3) quit procrastinating
4) book a trip to Chicago & NYC
5) paint more often
6) make this DIY necklace
7) go to more flea markets and local farmer's markets
8) buy a good camera and use it to take more outfit pictures
9) meet more bloggers and create more friendships
10) read The Hunger Games
11) aim for another 4.0 so I can get President Scholar
12) find a church that I can call home
13) Be in God's word everyday
14) start a new business venture
15) listen more, talk less
16) live out every moment as if it was my last

----------------------------------------------------------

It's 2012! Oh my gosh, can you believe it? I can't. I swear as I get older {and I'm not that old}, time seems to go faster and faster. If you follow me on twitter, you know that my New Years Eve wasn't so spectacular. 
Woke up with a swollen puffy face, felt like crap, and was in bed at 10pm. So exciting right? I don't really mind all that much, but I wasn't able to wear this dress. But, that just means I need to create a new occasion to dress up ;) Add that to my 2012 resolutions! How did you spend your New Years Eve? What did you wear, do tell!

  2. Happy New Year my friend!!
    Loving your resolutions, I'm all in for getting a new camera and learning how to use it, and I need it ASAP!! I didn't know you received the year in bed (I loose so many tweets due to the time zone difference), what a bummer! You should definitely wear that dress very soon, it's gorgeous!

  20. One of my 2012 resolutions is to (successfully) make cake balls. Did you make the ones in your photo yourself? They're so adorable, and make me want to get started on mine ASAP!

  22. I wasn't feeling too hot on NYE either, but the rest of 2012 has got to be better in comparison, right? :-)

    Buying a fancy pants camera is on my list too. If I can save $50 from each paycheck, I should have enough by July. Super exciting!
