It’s 2013…

We spent the day ringing in the new year with family… an unplanned dinner turned out to be really fun. Mom made the usual black eyed peas, which are not as nasty as some considering they are from the garden and frozen. She always insisted I have at least a spoon full even though we never bought in the “luck” theory. I think it was just an excuse to get me to eat them. I cooked a turkey. Amanda and Lorenzo ended up coming for dinner and all together you have an almost party!

It has been a nice Christmas break. I’ve enjoyed having Bailey around a lot. He actually left last night so he would have all day today to locate his classes. I miss him. We also got to see a lot of Amanda and Lorenzo! They stayed a couple of nights here for Christmas. I loved that. Everyone under the same roof!

Matt and I drove to Norman yesterday and had dinner with Amanda and Lorenzo. We went to Ted’s (yum)! and then drug the guys to the mall to see if anything was left at the Victoria’s Secret sale. Not much. Matt always asked why the only thing I come home with from there is more like sweat pant suits rather than the things on commercials. Ha.

New Year, new goals and plans. I do have one tiny little baby resolution I haven’t spoken out loud much. I want the option to change my mind… although I plan to start the process this week so we’ll see. If it all comes together I’ll let you in on it.

We had a really nice lunch at Tracey’s (Nathaniel’s mom) house. I took this:

red velvet cake

Tracey made steaks and pasta with alfredo…. It was a nice lunch and great to spend the afternoon with our school group!

I took Emelia to the eye dr. last week and her glasses finally arrived Friday! We spent the afternoon today getting our nails done with Christmas gift certificates to our nail place. She even had her brows waxed! Even my dad noticed! Ha.
