I guess first I should say Merry Christmas and Happy New year!!! I hope everyone had a delightful holiday:)
For Christmas this year my parents asked each of my siblings and I to perform an act of service and write about our service in a card telling them about it. Chase and I recruited our friends Mike and Kelsie and made a Christmas basket with a gift card containing what to me is a lot of money, then we gave it to a family in need. I LOVED doing this as a gift to my parents. The entire experience made me feel all warm & fuzzy inside.
I really love my parents, but I also like them.
For my Dad's Birthday (which is also Christmas) I put together a memory book with letters from old friends, new friends, and in between friends (and when I say friends I mean family too). I would like everyone who helped me with this project to imagine me giving them a huge hug and melodically singing thank you (my voice is in fact dove like...).
During Christmas break we spent our time climbing
Chase and I spent New Years Eve in San Francisco. It was a fantastic day. We are however getting old, at about 8pm an Elderly Chinese man took us on his bike buggy back to our car (We are 98.4% sure he kept letting them rip). We then drove about an hour out of San Fran and found a hotel to sleep in for the night. WE BOTH fell asleep before it was 10pm.
We are old...but I am totally okay with it. We had a really fun day and I would much rather wake up early to start the new year than wake up feeling like I got hit by a mac truck.
That finally brings me to my summary of last years resolutions and this years.
I did okay...!
I ran in a race. I tried MORE than 12 new recipes(but at least one every month). I read the ensigns. I did not read my scriptures for 10 minutes everyday. I didn't ever do the splits all the way. BUT I will soon. and I did not consciously work on a different attribute of Christ every month.
But I do feel like I kept my goals in mind and worked towards them.
THIS YEAR!!! 2013!!! WOOO
I want to write in my journal most days
Run a half marathon
Read my scriptures everyday
ensigns every month
Try a new recipe a month
be a better listener
wake up by 6:30 EVERY day. (except if sick)
Okay that's it for the longest blog post ever. If you made it through, I LOVE YOU.
