TBB Asks… New Year, New You

TBB Asks 8 January {The Blended Blog}

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a beautiful and peaceful intro to 2018. I know I did. After spending a week with our grandkids, The Hubs and I came home to ring in the New Year with our son and our two youngest daughters. I spent my time watching The Twilight Zone marathon on SyFy, while the rest of the family bounced around the house.

We decided to start a new tradition this year — lasagna and roasted asparagus with tomatoes for dinner. Prior to this year, we’ve always had seafood but I didn’t feel like waiting in line after a 12 hour road trip. And since we all love lasagna, it made sense. Did you start any new traditions this year or continue with any old ones? I’d sure love to read them!

And, while we’re sharing, let me get to those questions…

  1.  I don’t do resolutions because I always end up quitting about a week or so into the new year and then I get all angsty and it just isn’t fun.
  2. I don’t do well with cold. That’s why we live in Georgia. If I could move some place warmer than this, I would.
  3. The Hubs and I bought an RV last  year and have enjoyed visiting different places around Georgia, so I hope to continue that this year. We never really have a specific destination in mind, we just like to go. You can see some of my pictures on Instagram, if you like.
  4. A new hair color. I’m trying to grow my hair out now. Ideally, I’d get teal, purple, and pink streaks because fuuuuun!
  5. Hmmmmm, I don’t know. I’m open to ideas.
  6. The cold. And it’s the last of the extended vacation.
  7. My youngest daughter was born in January. The day after The Hubs started his job with P&G.
  8. Usually I take everything down the day after Christmas, but we were out of town, so everything is still up. I’ll take everything down tomorrow.
  9. No, not really. But I did kinda tell myself that I’d like to get it together this year. Does this mean that I lied about number 1? I mean, I weigh more now than I did when I was pregnant with my twins. There’s something wrong with that.
  10. I really need to get my bedroom together. We have that chair… You know, the chair that you put in your room for reading but you end up stowing clothes on it? Yeah, we have that chair.
  11. I love soup. Specifically, the Butternut Squash Soup from Panera Bread. Have you tried it? Please do, you’ll thank me later.
  12. Butternut Squash Soup from Panera Bread. That place can be expensive. But, if you don’t want to count that, then I’d have to say these earrings from Nickel & Suede. I have 5 pairs.

  • Hey lovey! Happy new year. Glad to see you linking up for this Q&A. I indulged and over-indulged this holiday season. Didn’t pass up a bite of anything. But really hate the way I am feeling now. So looking forward to being company-free (as of 7 am tomorrow) so I can get back to a healthier eating and exercising routine.

    I could relate to so many of your answers…that chair! I have that chair, too. PC bought it for my birthday and I never sit in it…much to his chagrin. Need to do better about that this year. And I am going to try a butternut squash soup recipe for Tasty Tuesday next week. It is a Weight Watcher’s recipe so it will be good for us but I hope it is tasty as well. Growing my hair out, too, at the request of all of my family. I kind of like it short myself, but have been overruled.

    You make me smile. Thank you for that.

    • Hi, Leslie! Happy New Year to you and your family.

      My girls were home for the holidays, so it was all the cake every day. Whenever they visit, we hit up Smallcakes like it’s going out of business. LOL But I won’t be seeing them for a long time, so I’m excusing our behavior. LOL

      The thing about butternut squash is that I absolutely hated it as a kid, now I love all forms of squash and okra and brussel sprouts. My dad and my grandma used to try to get me to eat it all the time. I really wish I had those days back….

      I like short hair too but, like you, I’ve been overruled. Grow it out, I must. But it’s so hard….

    How fun to read your answers and get to know you a little more! I want to get some Nickel & Suede earrings, I need to just order some already, ha!

    • I’m telling you, the N&S earrings are my favorites. I prefer the leather to the suede but they’re both super cute.

  • Tammy Nelson

    I loved reading all your answers ! An RV would be awesome, I’ll have to go follow you in Instagram !!

    • I didn’t think I’d like the RV and I fought my husband for years. Now? I love it and if I could go out year around I would. But, alas, my job keeps interfering with my life. LOL

  • Living on Cloud Nine

    I love that butternut squash soup! So loving you joining the link up with us!

    • It’s hands down my favorite food.

  • I will have to try that soup at Panera! Have a great week and stay warm!
