Song I'm Digging This Week

Because it's the Christmas season:

"It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" - Sara Groves

I am completely obsessed with Zooey Deschanel's new show "The New Girl." Who isn't? I'm pretty sure every girl in America has a little nerdy girl-crush on Zooey, and we all would love to look like her.

I look absolutely nothing like Zooey, but I'm taking the plunge this weekend and getting this haircut:

Yikes! I know. There's a whole bunch of bangs going on here, but I'm going to be brave and try it out. My hair isn't as long as hers yet, but I figure that since it's past my shoulders, it should be ok.

We'll see. Now I just have to find those cute glasses that she wears on the show, master "Eye of the Tiger" on handbells, and I can pretend I'm as cute and quirky as Jess Day.

Ok. So it's been so long since I've posted anything at all that I'm pretty sure that it's quite possible that absolutely no one will read this post.

But I'm back! I'm starting on my New Year's resolutions early, and one of them is to update this blog waaaay more often. As in, you know - more than once a year. Seriously, my goal is to post at least four to five times a week. Even if nobody reads it, it's good for me to keep flexing my writing muscles.

Some pretty big changes have occurred since I was last here:

1. I am 1.6 pounds away from having lost 50 pounds since June! Yes. It's a big, big deal for me.

2. For the first time, I've met my 52 books in a year goal! I'll be posting a reading recap post before New Year's.

3. I'm going to be an aunt! My amazing little sister, Holly Jo, and her husband, Alex, are expecting a baby in June. I'm super psyched.

I'm really excited about this Christmas and everything coming up in 2012. It's going to be good, friends.

It's going to be good.
