We get so busy with the day-to-day things, that I often forget to remind him how much he means to me!
We live about an hour away from our family, which isn't a long way away, but enough that we don't always get to see each other as often as we would like. This is definitely something I want to start making more of a point to do!
Grow spiritually. This past year B and I started going to a church where we live now on a regular basis. I really want to make it a goal to read the Bible more, pray more, and start to get connected at church.
Be more consistent with meal planning and trying new recipes.
With B finally being out of the academy, I can actually start planning meals for two again! I also want to start adding more recipes to my list of dinner ideas.
Work on myself more! I think this is typically always on everyone's list every year. I've gotten out of the habit of going to the gym, and am constantly just throwing on whatever I can find in my closet in the morning. I really want to make it a point to spend some time on myself as well!
With all of that said, here are some of my "mini-goals" for January!
1) I have ideas of things that I want to do for B this month, but he reads my blog so I don't want to list them! I will definitely tell what I did at the end of the month though.
2) Spend an uninterrupted evening with my parents and grandparents this month.
3) Find a good devotional or reading plan to start this month.
4) Try 2 new recipes.
5) Clean out my closet! I have things in there that I never wear or don't fit quite right, which would probably help with the getting ready process in the morning.
What are some of your goals for this year?

Hey everyone! That was definitely an unplanned break from blogging, but I am ready to jump back in!
First, I just want to say I genuinely appreciate every comment and e-mail about my Dad. This past month has been absolutely crazy, but he is out of the hospital and doing much better. My heart felt so full this Christmas. I was so thankful to have my Dad there, and to be surrounded by family.
Christmas Eve was spent at our house with my parents and brothers. We had chili, exchanged presents with my brothers and went to a Christmas Eve service at our church.
Christmas morning, B and I woke up and opened presents. Then we headed down to my aunt and uncle's for Christmas with my Mom's side of the family.
On the way!
At my aunt and uncle's. My mom and dad got me the scarf that I'm wearing!
Monogram necklace from my grandparent's. Love this!
B got me a new watch...
And the Christmas tree bead for my Pandora bracelet.
My brother's got me the "Queen Bee" charm on the left side.
They always call me the queen, so this cracked me up!
I also got a Chi straightener from my parents. Seriously should have invested in one of these years ago, saves me so much time in this morning!
Hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas!

He is the cutest little snowman ever! And yes, I decided he was a he. ;)
We are praying that his body begins to absorb the blood that is left on his brain in order to avoid another surgery. He goes for another CT scan in the morning. Any prayers would be appreciated.
I am definitely a Daddy's girl and we are praying that everything for good results in the morning, and for his body to begin the healing process on i's own.

They all stand around like this and watch each other shoot...for hours.
Time for Black Friday Shopping! Every year my Mom, Grandma, Great-Aunt and Cousin all go Black Friday Shopping. B and I actually went out Thursday night to Wal-Mart to get a Christmas present, and then us girls left Friday morning about 5:00.
We had a lot of fun as usual, and found some great deals. My grandma actually had a stress fracture in her foot a couple of weeks ago, so we made sure to take a few breaks so she could rest [not because my feet were tired too or anything ;)]
We went to Panera for lunch this year. Their macaroni and cheese is seriously my favorite.
That morning we put up our Christmas tree. I stuck with the same "theme" as last year. Having the tree up just makes the house seem really cozy.
Sunday was also the biggest game of the year...Ohio State vs. Michigan! This win made Ohio State 12-0 this year!
Sunday we went to church, took a much-needed nap, had chili and grilled cheese for dinner and finished up laundry. Nothing too exciting, but a much needed day.
Prayers today would be greatly appreciated...my Dad is having a major surgery done on his back. It's roughly a 4 hour surgery, so it's going to be a long day.

Seriously though. Apple Cinnamon Walnut Oatmeal from McDonald's is ah-mazing. So amazing that I had it twice this weekend.
Moving on...3 day weekends should be every weekend. 2 days to get everything done and see everyone that you want, and then 1 day left to hang out and do whatever? Perfection. I spent Monday hanging out with the husband and this guy...
I also did laundry, if you didn't notice in the background. ;)
He is such a cuddle bug. Funny story, Foster always sleeps with me if B is not home. B was out of town for a few days last week, and Friday night when we went to bed, Foster sat at the foot of the bed and whined like crazy. Apparently, he was mad that B was taking over his spot!
I also did my nails again this weekend. I am ready for Christmas, and I think it reflected in my nail polish choice?!?
OPI Germany Collection, Danke.
That's all I've got for today!
