Sunday Social: New Year's

Another Sunday Social link-up, this time all about New Year's.  To be honest, this has never really been my favorite holiday, and I'm not a big fan of those life-changing January resolutions that you stick with for two weeks and then ignore the rest of the year, feeling guilty whenever you remember them. But this year, I'm making an effort to improve some small things about my life, and we'll call those resolutions.

1. Favorite New Years eve you’ve had before: growing up, we did the same thing for most of the New Year's Eves that I remember, and it always involved getting together with the same friends.  So mostly, my memories sort-of run together, but it always involved: good food, playing games, sleepovers, and then eating breakfast together and going for a walk.  I kinda miss that. 

2. Are you doing anything for NYE this year and if so what?  We'll be spending it with some friends.  It'll probably be a quiet night, with game-playing and snacking and maybe watching a film. 

3. Name a book we should all read come January?  Does this mean a life-changing book, or just something to get yourself reading?  Either way, I have a lot of favorite books.  I'd say that everyone should read What a Carve Up! by Jonathan Coe.  You'll thank me.

4. What are your new years resolutions? Ugh, that dreaded question.  I'll just say: be happy and enjoy the present.  Something to work on in 2013. Also, fix our living situation and life plan. Oh, and just for fun: become an expert at making bread!

What are your New Year resolutions? 


  1. I don't like making resolutions - they always seem to be impossible goals :) I just try to do my best for the next year, no list in hand (well except for the stuff around the house!)

    I'd like to invite you to join our weekly Sunday and Monday Meet & Greet Blog Hop - Come link up and join the fun if you have time this weekend :)


  2. I have so many new years resolutions I want... but then I know most will drop after a month. So I am trying to think of a REALLY good one I can stick too. I am so lame. haha!

    Love, The Skinnys
