Getting Ready for the New Year!

Whew! I'm exhausted y'all! Looking for a quiet spot on the beach to relax and think with some peace and quiet:) This is what I need...
Pepi is down for his long winter's nap...bless his little heart! He's been so busy:)
My thank-you notes have been sent for all the Christmas gifts I received...You can read here and also here about my thank-you note etiquette tips.
As I've said every New Year's, I'm NOT a fan of New Year's Eve parties. I am always exhausted by this point and just want to stay home and watch the revelry from Times Square...wearing my PJ's and sipping some champagne.
However, I've been known to give these cute little "New Year's Eve" gifts to friends...
This is my go-to "New Year's" gift...the Southern must-eat on New Year's Day black eyed peas, wrapped in cello, tied with my signature gingham ribbon, with a party horn attached!
This year I'll be tweeting my "2012 Good Intentions List" on New Year's Eve over at Twitter...check it out. No goals, no resolutions...just "Good Intentions!"

Happy New Year to all y'all and I'll be back soon!

I like "Good Intentions". It is a combinations of goals and resolutions, plus you haven't failed if you don't keep them. I may use "Good Intentions" as the heading for my list.

Being 'pooped in style' is always great - will be joining that special group on NYE also - sipping champers in PJs too - in an airport hotel :(. Have a wonderful relaxing evening - your friends are in for a treat with their goody bags! Happy New Year Miss J!

Hi, I just gave you a shout out on my blog. I used your blackeyed pea gift idea. Used Poppers instead of the blower. Thanks, Lori
