H A P P Y N E W Y E A R 2 0 1 2 ! ! !

I'm already back at work the day after New Years and I am suffering from lack of sleep. I sure did take advantage of my 2 weeks off sleeping till noon almost every day. haha Now it's tough getting back into work schedule. Waking up at 5:45 am is killer for me!!

Aside from work, the new year is looking good so far. I did make New Year's resolutions for me but I made it short and manageable. (I think?)

1. Be more patient
2. Walk my dog at least 2 times a week
3. Lose 15 lbs. by Spring break

Let's hope that I stay consistent and true to my resolutions :) So how was everyone's new years? Mine was wonderful. Got to spend it with a few of my close friends. Had dinner at McCormick & Schmitz with a special baby announcement from a very close friend. Rang in the new years at a friends house with fireworks. Had my midnight kiss with the love of my life. I couldn't have asked for a better night. I'm just so thankful for everything in my life. I got a loving and healthy family with a wonderful supportive boyfriend and a group of friends I love and adore and a great job with a group of kiddos that keep my young and alive :)

Below are some pictures captured the night of New Years Eve! Enjoy!
