I fell off the wagon for a while and by a while I mean since October. November through January 1st is always a super busy time for me as I’m sure it is for everyone. I did so much over the holidays that I really don’t even feel like writing about it all. To sum up Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years this is what I’ll show you.
LOTS OF FAMILY TIME. In fact, almost TOO much family time.
Cousins and my sister.
My ever so stylish grams.
The good times before Taylor was born. KIDDING, she was in the bathroom.
Cutting down our tree per tradition.
Alot of this.
And of course I worked out….NOT
ANYWHO, 2014 was a monumental year for me. I became completely independent, moved to a new city, started a big girl job with a hoity toity company, hated said job, quit said job. Fell off the face of the earth for a bit, did some soul searching and now I’M BACK.
I didn’t really make any unrealistic goals for this year that I know I won’t stick to because I really don’t like those people. “I’m going to workout SO MUCH!!” …said every girl. This year I just decided that I would TRY to have more patience and also to accept the fact that some people are truly just stupid and ignorant. With that I’m going to try and keep sarcastic comments to myself and just find a silver lining in things. Lord knows I won’t be perfect because I swear they left the patient gene out of me when I was born and well, the world is filled with idiots. So here’s to that! I’m truly hoping that this will be a good year. I don’t need anything huge to happen I just want to relax and not have so much stress. Easier said than done but one can always hope!
What are your new year resolutions?
“Where at least I know I’m free. And I won’t forget the men who died and gave that right to me. And I’ll gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today. Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land. God bless the USA!” That song never fails to give me chills.
As much as I hate all the horrible things that happen in America (but everywhere else as well) I’m beyond blessed that we are truly free, unlike many other countries. We aren’t forced into marriages, we don’t have to worry about who’s watching us, we don’t have to worry about terrorist groups barging into our homes, and we aren’t typically forced into anything. It breaks my heart that in this world some people live with those fears everyday.
So on that note, I celebrated my freedom with an awesomely fun weekend filled with friends and family! Couldn’t have asked for a better 4th of July! It was definitely one for the books. I pretty much sat poolside all weekend.I enjoyed huge fireworks in the country while sitting in the hottub, drank copious amounts of alcohol and ate so much food I thought I would die (taco bar, HUGE breakfast each morning, bloody mary bars in the morning, amazing pizza, and SO MUCH BEER seriously we had 60 cases and two left by this morning), and laughed so much it hurt.
“Cause our flag still stands for freedom, and you can’t take that away.”
I hope everyone enjoyed celebrating our freedom!
How did you celebrate?
What’s your favorite part of the 4th?
