12 Most Popular Posts of 2012


It’s that time of year again,  we are about to close the book on another year and open up a fresh new chapter.  I love the hope and promise that the new year brings.  A fresh start and a new year to hopefully reach and maintain the goals that I set for myself! Adam & I do goals instead of resolutions and then we try to go over our goals once a month to see how we are doing.  We did pretty good on our goals this past year, but have been slacking a little on reviewing them.  Hoping to do better this year.  We are implementing a new weeknight schedule at our house in the coming year to hopefully tear ourselves away from the TV a few nights and spend more quality time together when we are at home in the evenings.  We still have a few free nights where we will catch up on our DVR, though! Do you have any New Year’s goals or Resolutions?

To end the year I always like to post my favorite posts of the year, and this year I thought I would add in the most popular posts, in other words, your favorites.  Below I’ve listed the 12 most popular posts from this year based on the hits and on New Year’s Day I will bring you my favorites of the year.  Hope you all have a safe and Happy New Year’s! Any big plans? We are headed to dinner with friends and then a party & games after.
