Happy New Year You All

2017(playing with Illustrator)

Thank you all for following my blog! I value everyone of you! 🙂 I wish you lots of good health and happiness in 2017.

Reflecting on 2016:

It was good to me and to our family. No complaints. Though I didn’t accomplish what I wanted to on a professional level, I am happy with what I did. I think I have found the way to improve that for 2017. 🙂 Positively positive on that one! 🙂

I like to reflect more on the positives than dwell on the negatives. We all have those negatives but if we learn from them than they can be seen as more of a positive.

I think.

If we didn’t have negatives than life would be kind a boring, right? Just don’t want those really bad negatives, like death, and such.

Soooo, I like that word, soooo we had an eventful night last night. The oldest son married his soul mate. 🙂 They didn’t want anything fancy, in fact, they probably would have went to the judge if big sister hadn’t looked into becoming a minister to marry them. 🙂 She did a great job! 🙂

And being the artsy fartsy girls we are we also made some simple decorations. I think it turned out well. Other than the new daughter in law’s family lives far away, later down the road they are going to have a reception near her family. Road trip!

Gives us time to save! 🙂

It is what they wanted.

They know what they want, we can not make those choices for them. I wish them lots of good health, happiness, and many years of wedded bliss! 🙂

Forgive some of the blurriness, for some reason I move the camera when I take pictures now. I think I am going to have to set it on sports action all the time. LOL.

New Years Eve Agenda:

Our fun for the night is staying in. Hubby and I did purchase some beer. We laughed because we bought the beer with the cute cans and not the quantity package. LOL. We were like, oh, what can we create with those after they are empty! I’ve rubbed off on him. LOL

Cheers, stay safe, and be happy!

 

December Is Flying By

Christmas 2014 ouside front (A few years ago)

I do believe December is flying by way too fast! Hope everyone had a great Christmas. We did! All four kids plus the two older ones brought their loves to spend Christmas Day with us. 🙂

Our family is growing! For me that was the best gift, because I know sometimes we won’t all be able to. Life gets busy and people scatter.

I received some great gifts. I love all gifts, from a thought to an expensive one. I do believe the thought ones stay with you way more than an expensive one. 🙂 Though hubby did surprise me with an expensive one this year, a new fridge. The other one was leaking, ruining our floor. It is now in the garage for drinks and extra food. It came in handy for the holiday. 🙂 So far, that fridge is not leaking out there. Go figure! LOL

Now, that brings us to the next holiday, New Years!

I was spending time online looking at one of my favorite music stores, Guitar Center, and came across the blue woodpecker. The name caught my eye. I even chuckled a bit.  What a gorgeous microphone!

Picture came to my mind of singing on New Years with that microphone. Do you ever daydream? I have some doozies. If I was having a party, been awhile, this microphone would be fabulous for karaoke. Do you like to karaoke? I usually have to have a few beers in me before getting in front of a crowd. I do have a couple of kids that love to sing. They would love this.

Whatever your plans are for the New Years, stay safe, have fun, and best wishes for you in 2017! 🙂

How’s your shopping going? I have only bought a few gifts. Always tight on money this time of year. Need to start in January with putting money aside, but there is always something that comes up.

I love Christmas for the family get together the most. Gifts are just a fun added plus. I never want anyone to over spend that puts them in debt. We have always been a family that spends with in the budget allowed. Some Christmas pasts have been pretty slim but they gave us lots of great family moments, which one can not put a price tag on.

Merry Christmas to All! 🙂

Happy shopping! 🙂
