So, I know I wore this dress on the blog a few weeks ago, but I really love it AND it’s the fanciest dress I own that’s not my wedding dress. Ergo, it was perfect for today’s Blogger’s Ball link-up! I used to have so many fun fancy dresses collected over the years between homecomings, prom, and sorority formals – but sadly those days are long gone and I no longer own those dresses.

I wish I had an excuse to get all gussied up more often, though. I love rocking a poofy, fancy dress. Doesn’t every girl?

Anywho. I’m thinking back on the past year as we move into 2013…

1. What was your best part of 2012?
Without a doubt, my wedding day. I know, I know, cliche. But hey, it’s true. It was one of the most important days of my life and I’ll never forget it.

still being molly: wedding

2. What was your favorite book / movie / song of 2012?
Book: I love to read and I read SO many great books this year it’s hard to pick just one. I’d definitely recommend “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” by Mindy Kaling for just a light, funny read. For a read that will totally rock your prayer life, or if you feel you need a recharge in your prayer life, I’d HIGHLY recommend “The Circle Maker” by Mark Batterson.

Song: Oh man. So many. But probably it’d have to be Like Jesus Does” by Eric Church (our first dance song) or Cornerstone” by Hillsong Live.

Movie: Close tie between The Hunger Games and The Dark Knight Rises. BOTH WERE SO GOOD.

3. What was your biggest accomplishment of 2012?
Without a doubt, becoming debt free. Best feeling in the world. It took almost four years, but I did it and I’ve never felt better!

4. What are you looking forward to most in 2013?
I have been feeling God move in my life so much these past few years and I have no doubts that He’s going to continue to do huge things this year. A couple other things up my sleeve that I can’t wait to talk about and share – but let me just say – I know that 2013 is going to be an amazing year.

5. What are your New Year’s Resolutions?
You know, to be honest, I’ve never been a big “New Year’s Resolution” person. Mainly because I’m of the belief that if you want to make a change in your life or improve something, then just do it. Don’t wait for a “date” to be your marker. Make TODAY or TOMORROW your marker. Start right away. Make that change. Take those necessary steps towards improving yourself or whathaveyou.

But, with all that being said, I have got a lot of ideas and things running around in my head that I’m just praying that I continue to focus on those dreams and keep working towards them. I’d love to look back a year from now and say, “Yeah, I did the best job that I could have done and I’m proud of what I accomplished.” Because more than anything, that means the most to me.

What about you? Favorite moments? Biggest accomplishments? New Year’s Resolutions?

Happy New Year, y’all! See you next year!
