HELLO 2013!

It is time to say goodbye to 2012. 
A year full of fun, some ups and some downs.
I am excited to see what 2013 has in store for me!
(13 just happens to be my favorite number!!)
I'm hoping a national championship comes first! Hah! RTR.
And, I am also going on a mission trip at the end of January. 
So, 2013 already looks VERY promising. =)

With a new year, comes resolutions.
I've never been to good at making and keeping resolutions,
so I like to think of my "resolutions" as goals I have for the upcoming year. 

Today I am going to link up with The Teachers' Cauldron.
Jen is having a fabulous linky where we are making two types of resolutions: personal and blogging. 

Here we go...

Make a budget!
I am very tight with my money, but I will feel so much better if I have a budget. 
I know I spend way to much money eating out! Yikes!

I need to get into a routine. 
My blog posts are random and sporadic. Not good!
So, my goal is to blog more often in 2013.
Also, I would love to get to know some fabulous teacher bloggers better.
I see bloggers who have developed friendships with other bloggers
 and that sounds fabulous to have other teacher friends to bounce ideas off of. =)

Finally,  I want to link up with Deedee for the last of the resolution linky parties! =)
I LOVE fitness.
So I wanted to make some fitness goals for 2013. 
I played sports all throughout high school and college and loved every minute of it.
I tore my ACL a few months after I finished playing competitive sports.
Since then I have had two knee procedures and I am still not back to 100%.
In 2013, I would love to get back into the shape I once was.

I bring you my fitness goals... =)
I want to participate in a mud run, and I would love to run some 5ks.
I also am DYING to join a Crossfit gym.
Do you any of you guys Crossfit? If so, what do you think?!!
It's a bit expensive, but I think I would LOVE it! =)

Well, there you have it...
my "goals" for 2013!

I hope everyone has a FABULOUS New Years Eve
and an amazing 2013!

Also, don't forget to comment on yesterday's post for a chance to 
win my New Years Craft and Writing Activity!

Christmas Craziness (& a giveaway!)

Wow. My little old blog has been VERY neglected over the past month. With Christmas craziness, it was just one of the many things I was able to put a side for a while until the craziness died down. We didn't get out of school until December 21st! Whew! After that I had some sort of family function every day through Christmas. It wore me out! Well, looking into January, I'm not sure the craziness is going anywhere, but I miss blog world so I am going to do my best to make time for my little place out here on the internet. 

I thought I'd take the time to share with you guys my New Years Craft and Writing Activity. 
BLAST OFF into 2013!

This is very similar to my Blast Off into a New School Year download that I posted back at the beginning of the year. It was a popular download, so I thought it would be fun to change it around into a New Year craft and writing activity. I did this craft at the beginning of the year so unfortunately I can't do it now. =( Hopefully some of you will be able to find this resource useful as you return to school in just a few short days! Teachers go back the 3rd. Yikes! TOO soon! =)

(Template/Journal Examples)

In this download you will find spaceship templates and journal sheets. On the journal sheets students will be able to write about why they think 2013 will be a blast!

Because it has been AGES since I have posted, and since I am doubtful anyone even reads this little old thing anymore, I will give New Years activity away to one random follower who comments on this post on New Years day. Simply leave me a quick comment and be sure to include your email address! 

Hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas season and is getting ready to bring in 2013 with a bang!

The Last Month in 2012! (&RTR!)

How is it December? This year has FLOWN by!
My December started of fabulously with a Crimson Tide victory! Yeah!!
Okay... so it is time for Farley's December currently... one of my favorite linkys!

Here we go!!

Okay, so all of the things above are pretty self explanatory,
but I need to further emphasize how PUMPED I am that BAMA is going back to "the ship"!!
I cannot WAIT to be in Miami on January 7th watching the Tide play Notre Dame!

My random act of kindness is to leave a card with a gift-card on a strangers car. 
Hopefully this will brighten their day and ease their pocket book this holiday season.
Hope you all have a fabulous December!
