The little things in Life...

I'm linking up with Lindsay at Hello Hue...celebrating the little things this week
http://www.hellohue.com/

In the big scheme of things there were a few highlights this week I was thankful for!
It was my first time going back to day work since midnights...
I love working the early morning hours and getting up before the sun. 
Sadly on Sunday I go back to working afternoons/evenings for a week and I have to say that I prefer the early mornings.  And early morning coffee =)
I'm so thankful that my husband was offered a new position for a specialized unit within his department.  Yay Brian, so proud of you!! 
I'm very relieved that our refinancing appointment went smoothly and all the paperwork is complete!  We have been home owners for a year now...wow craziness.

I celebrated 27 years on Wednesday and it was a great day in spite of work.  I was determined to be happy all day long.  My sweet family sent presents and it was so thoughtful of them to remember me.
My Christmas decorations are still up and I'm totally ok with that.  Our trees are so special and it makes me think I need to purchase some house plants to fill in when our Christmas trees go out.

So long 12...you were my favorite number!

I wish you all a TRULY HAPPY NEW YEAR!   

One of our goals is to both get healthy again.  That two year midnight stretch put on extra 20lbs on me.  I was always too exhausted to exercise and couldn't get into any regular meal routines.  Sooooo I joined JAZZERCISE! 
I absolutely love dancing away the stress and working out to fun tunes!
So in our attempt to exercise more and play together, we took Lyla to a big field and ran around with her for a good hour. I love watching my Canine girl run...she is crazy fast! I wish she could be my doggy partner on the road.  We threw around the football and attempted to kick field goals! Getting fresh air and chasing each other was so much fun!
We have so many hopes and plans for 2013. 
Continued construction work on our home,
landscaping our grassless backyard,
starting a family,
traveling to new places,
paying off debt,
and getting connected and involved in our new church.
