Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a very safe and happy New Year's Eve and New Year's Day! We certainly did. We didn't leave the house on NYE and were in bed by 9:30, just after Jaws on cable came to an end. We just didn't have it in us to stay up and watch Jaws2 or the ball drop (nor did we care). But hey we are usually in bed by 9pm so we gave up a whole 30 minutes of beauty sleep to see the end of the movie (that we have seen a billion times)!

I did make cabbage and black eyed peas for New Year's Day. It was my fist attempt at cabbage and it turned out great!
BEFORE:

AFTER: I did over pepper it but it was still really good.

The black eyed peas were from a can and while edible we will never again have canned peas. I will make them in the crock pot from now on.
We also enjoyed sausage balls and queso!!

I think we just might have a new Clanin tradition on our hands!


I don't do resolutions. Resolutions just seem temporary to me and there is never much stock in having a successful resolution. Change, however, is a commitment. I like this much better. It's something you can work on and be held accountable for so here are some changes that I want to make in this New Year of 2012:

- Change the eating habits of my household (certainly including myself).
- Pray everyday during my morning commute to work.
- Be more patient.
- Take steps to better our financial situation.

Wish me luck and good luck to you on your resolutions or changes or solemn vows/proclaimations!

Also, before I go. Here are a of couple post subjects that you will see very soon in an effort to catch up my blog while at the same time keeping current!!

-Thanksgiving
-Mac's Birthday
-Christmas!
-Random pictures that never made it to the blog...

I have tried lately to pick up the camera more so that I will have pictures to blog about and now that Mac is talking more I'm sure there will be blog worthy statements as well...
