Wednesday Hodgepodge-2013

Joining Joyce @


1.  How did you ring in the new year?



Just the two of us with a nice dinner, a movie and some wine! I loved it!

2.  What is one thing you are looking forward to in 2013?

Finding a job

3.  Steven Spielberg is quoted as saying, "All of us every single year, we're a different person.  I don't think we're the same person all our lives."  What say you?

I agree...life experiences change us....I'm not the same person I was four years ago and I hope to grow and be a better version of me this year! 

4. The Pantone color of the year for 2013 is emerald green. Like or dislike? Do you already own something this color?  Will you add something in this shade to your home or wardrobe in 2013? 

I love green...it was my wedding colors. I have a nice necklace and earrings in Emerald a gift for my 20th anniversary back so many years ago. I will probably add a scarf or sweater in green. Why not! 

5.  Speaking of emerald...what's your favorite gemstone?

I like emeralds, my birthstone is opal and I do like turquoise also....ruby is not to bad either! 

6. Share a favorite book or movie from 2012.

Follow blogger and author

As for movie I never went to the theater once...watched a bunch from the comfort of my family room couch....probably The Hunger games to name one. 

7.  What is something you want to tell yourself at the start of this brand new year?

To live each day without regrets!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I'm still kinda of in disbelief that it is 2013....I remember the big hoopla for 2000 Y2K and every year after that and all it's milestones.
I spent the day getting all the Christmas stuff put away...the countless trips of totes up and down the stairs! So glad it's put away, all except for the outside and that is for another day! 

I'm ready for a clean start to a beautiful new year! Happy Wednesday!

Sounds like a perfect New Year's Eve. My birthstone is Opal too but I haven't had one in years. I would love to live each day without regrets, that is something I think I will try to do!

Looking back on 2000 it is funny now. Did kayelyn go hang with her friends for NYE?

Emerald is much better than that tangerine business!

Glad your New Year is starting out great!

All the Christmas stuff put away already? I do think we change and we should since we should be learning all the time. I don't see that many changes from year to year. I think it can take a few years or a major event.

My birthstone is emerald. Sending you some positive thoughts on the job front. Happy New Year!

Tezzie said...

Yeah...the fact that it's 2013 just boggles my mind. Sounds like you rang the new year in perfectly, though :)

All my decorations are still up. I just agreed to host a luncheon here on the 11th so there's my motivation to get the house put back together. I still have my youngest home so will take advantage of that to cut my trips up and down the stairs in half : )

My mom loves green and is especially fond of emerald. While I love it, too, the color doesn't look really well on me. :)

May you have a wonderful 2013!

Crossing my fingers for you regarding the job!

My Christmas stuff is put away too. I left out a few snowman decorations until winter is done.
