Sunday Summaries – January 18, 2015
Welcome to another edition of Sunday Summaries and I’m doing my New Years Recap which I’ve done last year and want to make a tradition and even though January is half way over I still want to show you some pictures I took during the party and what I was up to since then.
I spent NYE with my family and all my extended family and it is sort of a tradition of mine to be at home and have a fairly big party with them and bring in the New Year together. We cook too much food and end up eating the leftovers everyday after that, stand outside and watch the fireworks and set some off, and then we end up taking family pictures and I basically go around taking pictures of everything and try to take a family portrait but sometimes end up failing, then we feast and eat all the food that is displayed on the table just after midnight and then we all go to bed maybe around 3 of 4 AM and wake up late the next day hungover from all the food and celebration. That is basically what goes down every year and it may vary but I grow to love it. So this year what we did differently was do our gifts after all the New Years festivities we opened gifts and everyone had their gift on the table since our Christmas tree was down and it was so lovely seeing all these gifts together and how excited we all were to open (well me and the three younger kids not the adults) couldn’t wait till after we ate. The cutest was watching my 1 year old godson open his gifts and he looked so happy and the pictures are adorable of him and he got this backpack and walked all over the house in it. I opened my gifts and gave all my gifts out and if you want to see what I got then check yesterdays post for that. That was my NYE and it was amazing if I would say so myself.
I took many pictures of family but didn’t want to put them on but here
is my second NYE outfit but I wore something more formal and stuff out
and that is a separate outfit post coming soon as well. I cut out my
family made a collage of my various crazy poses and my NYE whistle hat I buy one every year and it never fails for me to have one. I didn’t have a charger for my camera so I tried to get most shots as I needed not like last year there was a lot more. I really enjoyed writing this and it would be great to preserve the memories of NYE 2015.
So fast forward to now 17 days since then I have been trying to get myself organized and start fresh and yeah I’m doing the “New Year, New Me” thing but I do that every beginning of the month so its not really new to me. I am getting my life sorted by starting classes again and I only have 3 classes but they are so full and have so many requirements I need to complete so I’ve been scheduling photo shoots, assignments, research and everything concerning that in a small window is really hard and with me being one person it catches up to me.
Next is my blog. So I want to focus on my blog and blog at least twice a week and if I do more than great but if not I hope to be doing 2x a week but don’t hold me to that. Since I didn’t have my camera charger for 2 weeks I wasn’t able to get posts uploaded like my “What I Got For Christmas Post,” “NYE Recap” and “NYE What I Wore” and those are so overdue and I wanted them up but I’ slowly getting there and I have a few I still want to get up so I’m slowly editing and writing a little at a time when I have a moment which is usually at night before bed. I’m feeling really good with my blog and been loving my photography a lot more lately so that has been inspiring me. Speaking of inspiring, I have been leaving comments on the posts I have been reading and in exchange end up getting a lot of comments on here and it makes me a little happier to read someone out there takes the time to read my rambles. So thank you for the lovely comments everyone and I have been replying to all of them in short bursts throughout the day. Another thing is I am planning on getting a custom blog layout but I’m waiting a little longer to finalize what I want done so that is exciting!
I hope you have been having a lovely half of January and are still working on resolutions and sorting things out like me. I bought some pretty stationary to get everything together which is making me more productive I have a lot of things wrote down both real life stuff like classes and family events to my blog and I have most all this months posts planned out which I’m hoping I can stick to and get done. So thanks for reading this long rambling post of my NYE and my life lately. If you want real life updates, I am trying to update my Twitter and Instagram more often as it is one of my New Years resolutions and if you want to be nosy than my links are below to see what I’m up to (shameless plug). Have a lovely rest of the day everyone!
What have you accomplished so far in January?
