thirteen in '13

Did you know that my favorite number is 13?  I was so excited as we ventured into 2013:) There have been ups and downs along the way, but with health, happiness and family who can complain?

I am linking up with Miss Kindergarten, a teeny tiny teacher and Dragonflies in First with a yearly recap of 2013.

I have to say I {LOVE} our Team Wathen class shirts.  The front of the shirts have our school name and  first grade printed around our very cute school logo. 
I loved that my son and I read the books and were able to watch the movie together.
Perfect blend of action (for a 13 year old boy) and
 romance (for a much older mom)!
 I am not a night time tv watcher, so I have to confess I am a GH watcher:)
Today's episode will air in its entirety on Monday, December 23 at 2 ET | 1 C|P.

I love that we have a Panara Bread  across from our development.  The best part is it is a DRIVE THROUGH:)  One large ice green tea, light ice to go PLEASE!!

I bought a new Keirug as my old one died on Easter...and my mother in law introduced me to this!! It tastes JUST LIKE the Chai at STARBUCKS!!  Yum:)


Dear hubby ordered me a surprise early Christmas gift because my old laptop kept overheating.  I love the laptop, although I have NOT fallen in love with Microsoft 8:(

 We celebrated Christmas Under the Stars at our church's Christmas Eve service.  There were around 3,000 people outside celebrating the birth of Jesus.  It was an amazing experience even with chilly Florida temperatures!  Zach couldn't see and Justin let him get up on his back.  It was truly the sweetest moment.  I am so blessed to be their mom.

I love these sweet friends!  Cathy and Diane are dear friends who share my love for scrapbooking, stamping and crafting!  They drove up and surprised me with a birthday celebration in July AND invited me on a scrapbooking cruise in October!  The cruise was so much fun and I am so thankful for my dear friends:)

 Yep, that's the goal.  Baby steps towards my One Little Word.
More on this to come!

I hope you have reflected on 2013.
