Hubs and I went to a couple of UGA Basketball games in Dec (the 15th and 29th)!


WOW! What a year! I guess people are right when they say, "Y'all do a lot." I guess we do! I do try to find things for us to do that are cheap or free so usually we aren't spending too much on any one thing.

 I'm sure I left something out but that's pretty much our year here in the Kirk house in a nutshell.

So, clearly 2012 was good to us. I can't wait see what 2013 might bring! I don't do resolutions but my goals are to keep going and to stay positive. 

Goodbye 2012,
Welcome 2013 y'all! :)


  1. You're right, you did have a great 2012! Love the pictures! Here's to an even better 2013! Happy New Year!

  2. Looking back, it have been a little much but I wouldn't have it any other way. We are still (kinda) young with no kids yet. Trying to live it up while we still can! :) I'm glad you enjoyed the pics. It was so fun to put them all together!

    HAPPY 2013 To YOU!
