Happy 2014!

I can't believe it's the 6th of January already! Time to get back to writing! Here are some main points of the last few weeks.

  • I survived the holidays, ate way too much tasty food, but my waistline seems to have come out of it quite unscathed and possibly even smaller. Wahoo!!
  • Our nephews loved their needle felted Angry Birds that I made for them for Christmas and they totally believed that Santa picked them up from our house and dropped them off at their house. (A letter from Santa himself helped)
  • I still have my decorations up with a hearty desire to keep them up because they are pretty and I like them. 

  • I have finally realized that sugar is absolutely evil as every time I had a holiday meal and ate a significant amount of the wicked white stuff, which has been rarely part of my diet the last few month, it tried to kill me. Kill may be a bit strong but it zapped my energy and made me feel like I had a nasty cold and sore throat for 2 days after. I hate you sugar.
  • Roast duck is a fabulous thing, even if it looked like a giant skinned bat.
  • My new TV show addiction is My Cat From Hell and I can't get enough of it. I also can't get enough of cat shaming and you can click HERE to see my recent favorite compilation.
  • We've had numerous wet and windy storms which would be called a 'hurricane' if we were Georgia and not Ireland.
  • Branden and I got fabulous new glasses and we are really pleased with them. His are a dark greenish tortoise shell color and mine are purple and black. 
  • I am still behind on all the recent birthday videos we have done so I'll leave you with Hunter's birthday video from November! 

Happy Monday and Happy New Year!


  1. Love starting out the new year with a fun post! I read your other blog as well, and I just know things will work your way. Saying prayers for you both just in case. Much love and Cadbury Eggs in 2014...well, since you're off "the white stuff"...I'll eat them for you. Hugs!!!!!

  2. I love your glasses. Happy New Year!


  3. Happy New Year! Yeah, Ireland hurricanes and Tennessee arctic blasts. What a strange new year this is. It was 7 degrees Fahrenheit here all morning long yesterday. And then it got cold. Today was positively tropical. We got all the way up to 14 degrees.

  4. Yes, sugar is evil... but it's so tasty!

    Happy New Year!
