Sounds like a good way to ring in the New Year, right?! :)

May your glasses overflow with bubbles and may you celebrate with those who fill your heart with happiness and laughter.

Party like it's 2012 my friends! Happy New Year!

It's here! It's here! PUMP is here! It's the newest addition to the Beachbody family and I am so excited that it's HERE!

I personally LOVE taking BODYPUMP classes at the gym and don't get me wrong, I will still be showing up to class, BUT, now I will be able to do the workouts I love at home, on the days I can't make it to the gym or when classes are scheduled at times that don't work with my own schedule.

I personally ordered the Deluxe PUMP package because I want everything this program has to offer. I can't wait for PUMP to arrive on my doorstep. I am going to be one VERY happy girl when I see that box waiting for me. :)

In 2011, I personally wished for a lot of things. Many of which came true; others not so much. That's OK. Wishing is something I'll never stop doing...

As I prepare to enter 2012, I am wishing for a couple things in particular. Normally I would tell you what they are, but hey, don't they say if you tell your wish, it won't come true?!

Have you made your plans for NYE yet? Well, I haven't quite settled on what I'll be doing to celebrate, but I do know I plan on ringing in the New Year with Champagne. That's just a mandatory, right?!

Here's a recipe for a yummy, tropical Champagne cocktail:

Ingredients -
  • 1 can (20-ounce) crushed pineapple in heavy syrup
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup maraschino cherry juice
  • 1 cup dark rum
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1 bottle (750 ml) chilled inexpensive brut Champagne

Directions -

In a large punch bowl or pitcher, stir pineapple, lemon juice, cherry juice, run and brandy to blend. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Add Champagne just before serving.

Has it really been over a month since my last post? Where did the time go?! Not only did the past two months seem to disappear in the blink of an eye, but the whole year seemed to. That's OK... I am looking VERY forward to 2012.

I am anxiously awaiting new beginnings, new goals, new experiences and new memories. So as we enter the last week of December and prepare to say goodbye to 2011, I will leave you with these little thoughts to ponder as you think of the new goals you will set for yourself in the new year that waits ahead.
