Wokeup to freezing temps this morning in northern California. Hubby and I watched the Rose Parade and saw the reunion of a soldier and his wife and son. So touching. We also saw a couple get married on one of of the floats.

Snowflake, I saw that Wisconsin is playing Stanford in the Rose Bowl. I though of you when the WI band marched down Colorado Blvd.

Hubby and I were privileged to attend one year and it was fantastic. I want to go again one day, maybe next year!

Happy New Year again, everyone!

I am not sure if I did, but I put forth the effort! That was one of my last year's resolutions!

That is a very interesting question! I know that I wasn't able to. I didn't become really 'active' here until about the summer. And even then, I was so busy with family and running around that I couldn't check in every day like I wanted. Then, I took a vacation this past fall and it was difficult for me to find time for the internet.

Now that you mention it, though, I think I am going to make that a personal goal of mine for 2013. It would be very nice to find the time to post at least once every day for the year. I like that idea!

Awwww! Try not to have the blues. If Christmas was here all year-round, it wouldn't be nearly as exciting or special. That is what is so fun about putting the tree up in November and enjoying it for a couple of months - it makes it extra special and gives it meaning. I know I wouldn't get the same joy if my tree were up year-round.

Wow, your schools start back very late. I am in college and I start back next Monday, the 7th. The local school district here starts back tomorrow.

Get yourself out of those blues and start getting excited for Christmas 2013! Being bummed out is no way to start the New Year!

I try to read and post every day, but miss a day here and there due to illness, schedule demands, vacation, etc.

I think I did. I had Wifi when I went camping so I know I didn't miss any then.

Just because you are hosting a NYE/NY program doesn't mean that you have to scream the whole time! Most of us are at home watching and we really don't want to hear you shrieking at the top of your lungs. Aside from that, I didn't think Ryan Seacrest was too shabby. I think they paid a nice tribute to Dick Clark, and I really do like that they kept the name of the program the same. It only seems right!

I could have used some better entertainment, though. Perhaps without Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift...

I could not stand Fergie either. The constant posing and trying to be sexy for the camera got old really quick.
