Monthly Musings for December

 It's the last Thursday of the month and time for Monthly Musings with Holly and Patty. 



1. Favorite moments of 2021? I have so many favorite moments from 2021 (which I shared here).  Alec trying out track and just killing it at public school.  He is loving it!   


Spending lots of time with our family and friends-- at the beach, at the roller rink, at our home.



2. Favorite vacations/trips of 2021?  They were all my favorite! My husband and I went to New Hampshire (twice!) and Maine.  We took a family trip to North Carolina.




3. Do you make new year's resolutions? Do you want to share yours?  I don't normally make any resolutions; when I want to make changes to my life I just do it without waiting for a set day or time. 

4. Did you have a word/phrase for 2021? Do you have one for 2022?  I did pick a word for 2021; it was embrace.  I don't have my word picked out yet for 2022 but hope it will come to me soon! 


5. Favorite fashion trend from 2021? I don't keep up on fashion trends... maybe distressed/ripped jeans?


6. Favorite phase of 2021? Nothing comes to mind... 

7. Biggest surprise of 2021?  My husband sold his business and went to work for someone else. I knew he had been thinking about it but I was so surprised when it finally happened. 

8. Stay in or go out on New Years Eve?  Always stay in; this year we're hosting a little graduation party for my oldest that night. 

9. Stay up until midnight or crash early?  Always crash early; I don't think I've made it up until midnight since I was in college (once!).

10. New year's day-- football, stay in bed, or binge and chill? Definitely not football, but we don't normally do anything very memorable that day.  Depending on weather we might hike.

  3. I used to love New Year's eve late nights, but somehow going to bed seems like a more sensible way to begin a new year

  8. A New Year's hike sounds pretty great! I'll have to see how I'm feeling since I'm hoping to get my booster on New Year's Eve...

  9. I am not a resolutions type person, either. I did resolve to give up chocolate one year. I made it to February! I love these types of posts...you get to know people so much better!

    Have a wonderful, if quiet, New Year!

  11. I like destroyed/distressed jeans so much and just hated them at first. I still worry a little about wearing them at 63 but they are fun, and comfy and trendy and did I mention fun?? You look super in yours.

    I am back on Weight Watchers again. Want to get back to my monthly wellness posts and hope to write some about Weight Watchers. Gained 6 pounds in the last month of the year with a whole lot of emotional eating. Grrr.

    1. I hated distressed jeans at first too! I didn't gain weight but I haven't lost any either and I am redoubling my efforts with WW starting this morning. I did workout with weights for 30 minutes and have only eaten fruit and yogurt so far today.
