Blogger's Ball

New Years Ball

1) What was your best part of 2012?
The best part of 2012 was definitely buying my childhood home. We were so blessed to get it at such a good deal in the area it's in. My parents are amazing and I am so glad they made this possible.

2) What was your favorite song/book/movie of 2012?
Favorite song (I am picking 2):

My Grandfather passed away January 30th 2010. He was my go to person, my best friend. This song just felt like it was for him. 

How can you not love Alex Clare? Definitely my most listened too station on Pandora.

Favorite book: 

Gone with the Wind. Shocking, I know. I re-read it this year and fell in love again. I am a little Scarlett-ish at times. I know she is the whiny one we love to hate, but I am a fellow hard headed bitch and I love her. 

Favorite movie:

I love Edgar Allan Poe and the movie was crazy. 

3) What was your biggest accomplishment of 2012?
We managed to change our lives financially. We got on the right track and bought a new house and a new car. Now we are moving towards getting out of credit card debt by June. We want the house paid off in 8 years instead of 30. Thank you Dave Ramsey program. 

4) What are you looking forward to the most in 2013?
I am looking forward to riding a lot more and getting out of debt. I am also looking forward to my best friends wedding in October. 

5) What are your new years resolutions?
- Get out of debt
- Lose weight and get healthy
- Ride more and fix all of my weaknesses
- Go to church more
- try one new recipe a week
- be a better blogger
- be a better southern belle. (class it up, entertain more, be kinder)

Oh we're gonna get out of debt in 2013, too. This is way at the top of my list of things to do. Sort of makes me happy to hear we aren't alone. ;)

I love that dress! It reminds me of a peacock with the colors at the top. Great outfit for the bloggers ball!
