December 2012

Buh-bye 2012

Well, we are almost all done with 2012!

 I'm feeling a little boastful about some of the 'trends' that I managed to avoid {again} this year.

1. Kardashianything

2. Angry Birds with Friends

3. Honey Boo Boo

4. Uggs

5. Any Real Housewives of anywhere

6. jeggings, and it's cousins "hey! leggings are not pants", and "yoga pants are for yoga, you are not doing yoga!"

7. Never ever ever, Adele, Goyte, or Call Me Maybe

Saturday of silence

In light of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, I am observing a day of silence here on the blog.

I can't yet talk about this event, and to talk about anything else would be inane.

If you pray, please pray.

Hug your children {or children in your life}.


and the 2013 color of the year goes to....

.... emerald!

pantone emerald


I have wondered before what is up with "color of the year".

Who are these people?!

Why do they get to tell us what color will be popular next year?!

So I asked the Google and Wikipedia:

wow, wait, December?

Hi there!

Saturday totally snuck up on me this week! {not a bad thing to happen, unlike wretched sneaky Mondays...}

Then I noticed that December just snuck in too.

Wait, what? Where, when?!

Reminds me of a quote from The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, "The days are long, but the years are short."
