Happy New Year!

What are your traditions to ring in the New Year?

On my years, we spend the day in Philadelphia, to watch the Mummers. There is a parade outdoors all day, and many string band performers and Mummers ‘ clowns in the parade, but we prefer the indoor show at the Convention Center by The Fancy Brigades. it starts officially at 12 :00 p.m., arrive earlier and you get to do the Philly ” strut” aback and forth motion with you feet, with one of the Fancy Brigade captains leading the guests. We missed this portion this year.  Better yet, I got to try on the sequined costumes from prior years’ performances.  For those moments , I almost felt like a kid again playing dress up.   Further down in the post, I will share Some Mummer’s photos.  please come back to visit my blog.

Do you make resolutions?

I had a very busy year for 2013, taking care of members of my family that live in another town, so for thus year, my wish is that  I can handle all the challenges that come my way.  I hope to get the chance to use the gift  card That I got last year for a local spa.  I spend most of my days off at my mom’s house.

    Loved the outfits! Met you through Diann’s blog, The Thrifty Groove. Hope your new year is good and that you find time for YOU! I make goals, as opposed to resolutions. One of mine this year is to work on developing self-discipline! (Good luck to me. ha!) Susan
