Farewell 2013!

I caught myself reading through a few blogs and ran across one with a cute listing of questions to ask yourself as you end this year.  I am playing along!

Let's wrap up 2013 and put a bow on it, shall we?
Joy @ i can say mama: 2013 Wrap up

1) Gained or lost weight? 
Sadly, I gained weight (Hello New Years Resolution that everyone says they’ll do!)
2) Predominant feeling in 2013? Overwhelmed
3) Predominant feeling for 2014? Hope and Cleansing
4) Something you did for the first time in 2013? Sent my 1st baby to Kindergarten and signed up to be a Room Mom.  I tried kickboxing and Texas Fit Chicks Bootcamp too.
5) Something you did again in 2013 after a long pause? Cooked/Baked! I don’t do it very often but when I do, I go crazy!  This year it happened when we got iced in and schools were closed.
6) Something you unfortunately did not do in 2013? save
7) Word of the year? I didn’t do a word for 2013.  Maybe that is what the year was missing?
8) City of the year?
Connecticut, mostly because that was just an impact to everyone across the USA if not the world. 
9) Hair longer or shorter? I have the slowest growing hair.  I cut it off in 2012 and I don’t think it has recovered since.  I am trying to grow it longer.
10) More or less money spent? More, eep!
11) Highest mobile phone bill? Probably $300?  That’s about the time we realized we needed a better texting plan!
12) Hospital stays? I didn’t stay in the hospital for anything this year! 
13) (Fallen) In love? In love with my honey, Erik! We celebrated our 6th anniversary this year, 2013!
14) Most called person? Courtney, unless of course Erik counts.
15) Whom did you spend the most beautiful time with? My family.  My favorite memory was our trip to the Texas beach!
16) What did you spend most of your time with?  work?  I spend way too much time at work, or in the car driving to and from work!
17) Song of the year? Wow, this is a tough one.  I think Philip Phillips maybe “Gone Gone Gone”

18) Book of the year? Facebook! hah!  Terrible answer.  I didn’t read anything! yikes!
19) TV show/movie of the year? Yet another hard one, but since its fresh on the mind, TV show of the year for me was/is BlackList.  The movie might be ‘This is 40’ because I remember laughing so hard with it.
20) Insight of the year? I think I’ve known this all my life but more so this year, I need more patience in my life!
21) Three things you totally could have done without? Candy Crush, Debt and donuts.
22) Most beautiful event? Watching Ryan walk away to the start of his 1st year in school and the beginning of the rest of his life.  Sad to see the kids grow up so fast so I treasure that moment.
23) More short-sighted or more far-sighted than 2013? This might be a more in depth question than the answer I’m giving- but I had lasik! ha!
24) The most dangerous thing you did? Tried kickboxing and getting punched in the face! haha!  Its all I could think of!
25) The most expensive thing you bought?
Our newest car!
26) The most delicious meal or food you ate?
  This year was the year of Pizza… Urban Crust especially! I ate there so much this year!
27) The best party? Pinterest Annual Party
28) The most important thing you wanted to convince somebody of? I had hopes of getting enough information to convince Wells Fargo that they allowed fraud to occur under their watch.  29) The most beautiful present you gave to somebody? I was pretty proud of the Valentine’s Hourly gift for Erik.
30) The most beautiful present that somebody gave you? The hourly gifts from Jessica for my 35th birthday!
31) The most beautiful sentence someone said to you? When my kiddos say “I love you” or “I missed you” out of the blue.  So sweet.
32) The most beautiful sentence you said to someone? Babe, I got a bonus! Its always a good thing to hear when you need it most.
33) How will you celebrate New Year's Eve? Likely at home with the kiddos and possibly our neighbor friends.  I think it might be a struggle to stay up till mid-night, but we’ll sure try.
34) What will you have for dinner?  I better get crackin’ to figure this out.  Erik bought Black Eyed Peas to reign in the year with some luck.
35) What drinks will be in your glasses to clink? hmm.. after last New Years, I’ll probably stick with water or Sprite.
36) Will you ignite any fireworks? I think we’ll watch them on TV. 
37) What are you going to wear? Comfy or glamorous?   Comfy!
38) Did you have any resolutions for 2013? And how about 2014? I didn’t really make any resolutions for 2013.  My 2014 resolution will be to give up donuts and mac n cheese! Wish me luck!
39) What are your wishes for the new year?
I just hope for a better year.  I hope we get to go to the beaches again, perhaps a family trip and most of all, I wish we could sell our land.
40) In one word: 2013 was... tough

This was fun to read. It was a big and crazy year for you. I live that Phillip Phillips song, I was so happy when he won idol a couple of years ago.
