Welcome 2012

I always love the new year. I feel like it's a fresh start. A good reason to make some changes. I know that you can change things/set goals anytime... but I think the thought of a new year. It is an excellent reason to set new goals! Last year I think I may have set the bar a little too high (Words of my brother in law Spencer). This year I decided to set more realistic expectations. Last year I had 11 new year's resolutions... This year I cut it down to 5.

1- Write a thank you card to someone once a week
2- Be a better saver/be more frugal
3- Continue school
4- Be more grateful/ write in journal
5- Blog at least once a month

Also, I cannot believe I still have not written about our new addition to the family! On October 21, 2011 this little guy joined the fam...

                                                             Dexter Maxwell Hall

This is the first day we got him. He was 11 weeks old and only weighed 7 pounds. He was like a little stuffed animal.

Now here he is... weighing over 30 pounds. I still try to hold him like a baby. I probably will continue to hold him like a baby until I can't hold him anymore because he's too heavy. I will keep trying though. He's so sweet. I am so glad we got him. Even if he does get a little rambunctious at times and try to bite me, he's just playing. And he's teething, so I have to cut him some slack! Every day when I get home from work he is so excited to see me. He's the nicest dog.

i'm glad you could post once a year. kidding. your once a month goal sounds awesome. i think you should do more than that though to si know what's going on with you once in a while since you keep ignoring my texts. it's cool though. don't even worry about it.

dude. you just pop in once in a blue moon like it's all cool. it's not. are you having a baby yet or what? where are you even working? i didn't get a new number. you put it in wrong. message it to me on facebook. i did respond. in a comment on here. you never responded until just barely. dude michael jackson died like last summer. started smoking when michael got off the freeway. canned chicken is good for sandwiches. just mix it with some mayo and pickles and botta bing botta boom. also you can use it in enchiladas, chicken pillows..anything really that calls for chicken. it's from the same bird, if you know what i mean. i don't even know what you're doing with your life because you never blog or update facebook. how about you write a post about what the heck you are up to. or maybe just stop denying the friendship.
