New Years at the Sauls house goes a little like this…

Black and gold that we didn’t plan.

Food…we always have a potluck spread.

My plate: baked beans, 1 beer-cooked dog bit, mac-n-cheese, chili, stewed carrots and celery, a corm muffin (ate half), 2 pieces of my Daddy’s famous pork, big salad with roasted red pepper hummus. I like these sectioned plates. They help with portion control.

Dessert: I went back to the house (benefits of hosting) and got some greek yogurt, crumbled some Ooey Gooey Butter Cake (Paula Deen’s recipe) and a few sugared pecans (not sure what exactly was on them, but they may be used in oats in the near future), plus a little half caf.

Then the party got started!!!

Jello-shooters…(my Mom is the CUTEST!!!). I had 1 little bite of Mom’s. My first taste ever…loved it!




Fun attire

These are my Zumba mamacitas that I teach to on Mondays and Thursdays.

My beautiful date for the evening…you can swoon, it’s cool!

Happy 2011!!!  I’ve loved reading everyone’s goals and 2010 recaps so I can see all I’ve missed in your lives. Thanks for sharing you lives with me. I wish you truth, love, laughter, joy, and peace this year.

I looked up my goals from 2010 in my journal…

I’m working on the 2011 ones. What’s your goals for 2011? What was your biggest accomplishment of 2010?

    How fabulous! The food looks awesome. I love being able to have a little of this and a little of that! Your mama is totally adorable. Not real resolutions for 2011- general goals: 1. spend more time with family & friends, 2. sleep more! Biggest accomplishment of 2011? I’ve secretly been working on something that may be coming to fruition. Will post about it…soon 🙂
