The 2013 New Year's Blog Hop



Happy New Year!! I love the new year because no matter what happens, we get to feel as if we're starting fresh. I had an amazing year with 9 books, including print books, new hops, new readers, and new series. 2012 was fantastic! 

Traditions in the new year? Well, for us, we always to fried finger food for dinner. That way we glutten ourselves before we eat healthy for the next few months. Yes, it's idioic, but so tasty!!

And with the new year, comes a new book. BLURRED EXPECTATIONS released just for the new year and I hope you get a chance to read it!


Blurred Expectations - Redwood Pack Book 4.5 - Coming 2013

Hannah Jamenson has babies on the brain. It seems that her sisters-in-law are expanding their family in the blink of an eye, but Hannah feels left behind. Every time that little test reads negative a little part of her dies and she feels like her Healing powers are failing her. Her mates, Josh and Reed, are doing everything they can to help her deal with their trials and losses, but they too feel like there is nothing they can do.

Just when the lines of what they mean to each other go out of focus, an enemy from Josh's past is back to prove the things that go bump in the night are real and everything they had held dear is now in jeopardy. In order to fight back and find their way, they'll need to put everything on the line before they lose it all.

Author’s Note: This is a novella set between books 4 and 5 to give you a taste of Reed, Josh, and Hannah. It is best that you have already immersed yourselves in the Redwood Pack world, however even new readers will enjoy a glimpse of the Redwood’s favorite triad.

  10. We spend the New Year at home. We do stay up for the fireworks display and have a new year toast but don't go downtown. Las Vegas is really crazy downtown on New Years Eve so we avoid the madness and have a birdseye view of all the festivities in the comfort of our home! Happy New Year to one and all.

  37. We usually have a big dinner with the family but this year now that kids are moved out and on their own we are changing our tradition to snack day, I mean after having turkey for thanksgiving and then ham for christmas with all the goodies, I'm tired - LOL So hubby and I will have pig in the blankets, hot wings, cheese dip while watching what ever football game that comes on. LOL Of course one thing I will always do for good luck is have my tablespoon of blackeyed peas with our snacking - LOL

  38. We don't have any New Year's traditions, sadly. Which it were otherwise. When I was a kid we used to go to another family's home and they had a huge spread of feed with TV's stationed in different rooms with all of the bowl games. Nowadays, there are too many bowl games to keep track of which, I think, also diminishes the excitement for the biggies on New Year's Day. I miss the fun we used to have.

    Happy New Year

  50. Traditional belief really: whatever you do today, you'll find yourself entrenched within for the entire year. So whatever you do, forget circular activites like cleaning or God help us...laundry. Spend time not money on family, friends, and lovers. Namaste.

  57. A tradition that we always did when I was younger and living at home is we would get out pots and pans and go out on our porch at midnight and bang them together... make tons of noise.... This is probably something I will do when my kids get to be old enough to know what we are doing and actually can keep themselves up late enough.

  77. I can't say I have a tradition anymore for New Year. Several years ago, when I still lived in Florida, some friends would always host a party so that was my tradition several years running. Now, I'm back out on the left coast, plus have a new love in my life, so I suppose we'll have to start building our own traditions.

Have lunch, sit out on the deck and watch everyone swimming as well as swim if the sea appears safe - it's a dangerous beach with rips and has a lot of surfers as well. It's a beautiful location.

  125. I don't really have traditions anymore. I have two young kids who are too small to go out and celebrate.

    The only thing I find myself doing every 1st of January is waking up and saying to my hubby "Bloody hell, I haven't had sex ALL YEAR."

  152. Our New Year's Tradition is to go to our friend's house. They built an Irish Pub in their attic, its amazing and only open a few times a year to their friends. It has a stage, the best kareoke in town, drinks on the house, 4 flat screen tv's, 8 tables, and a wall of Irish whiskey, its amazing. So every year we go and sing and act silly in a safe and fun environment.

  153. Our tradition is a new one this past 2011 and 2012. Our son joined us in 2011. He just happened to wake up right before midnight these past two years. Hubby and I snuggle with him on the couch and watch the ball drop. Than we give him the first kisses of the year! We're so in love with him! Happy New Year to all! chendry123@yahoo.com

  159. I spent the new years at home with my three furry babies, Cali, Lassie, and Lucky! We curled up on the bed, enjoyed some good movies, and read the evening away until time for the ball drop. And for my midnight kiss ... sloppy love from all three of my furry ones! Couldn't have been more perfect as is the tradition in our home. We dont go out and drink and flutter about. We stay in our houses with family and pets and enjoy each others company :D

  161. A tradition in our house has always been to have seafood! Lots of shrimp! Lots of fatty food! I can indulge and not feel bad about it! New Years Day we have ham, mashed potatoes and sauerkraut you have to eat it or you'll have bad luck the upcoming year. It's an old German tradition that my Grandfather brought over with him. I grew up with it and I want to continue it when I have my children.

    I hope you and your family have a great New Years!

  171. I'm superstitious and have always felt that New Years is a premonition for the coming year. So, I chill out with my husband and eat good food, stuff we normally eat rarely and drink good wine...

    This year:
    Breakfast: Norwegian Eggs with Mimosas;
    Lunch: Roasted RedPepper Soup, Lobster salad in Homemade croissants with Champagne;
    Dinner: Fried Lobster Ravioli, Peking Dumplings, A Variety of Pickles, Stir-fried Baby Bok-Choy.

    Today: diet penance LOL

  178. These are fundamentally short phrase loans that do provide you meet your fiscal challenges inside a desired
    certain time period. Considering time limitations these
    loans are especially intended above an obligation cost-free platform.
    As such, these are kept completely cost-free from credential
    checksums. Challenges such as defaults, arrears, bankruptcy, CCJs and even IVAs are
    not regarded as right here. Additional, there are also no collaterals linked with these loans.
    There is minimal paper work required on the part of borrower.
    There are also no hidden or further documentation or faxing expected here.
    Applying for these loans is also extremely practical.
    Many people just require filling an on the net
    type and when this gets authorized money is received within 24 hours time frame.
    These loans are normally supplied beneath hassle-free terms
    and situations. The general simple applicant criteria here
    is that they really should be a UK resident and of 18 years of age.
