  1. I'm going to be a bit boring (it's in my nature, what can I say), and share that I'm going to try to break my bad eating habits; also, I'm going to try and improve my French and either pick up another language or continue with Norwegian, cause it's pretty.
    And talking about books, I'm super excited about King of Scars and The Wicked King!

    I want to visit Montana this summer, and have plans to do just that.
    Too many books to name, and I can't name a single movie off the top of my head. I am looking forward to the 30th anniversary Blues Traveler concert at Red Rocks in Colorado.

    And thank you for the prompts. Much more fun than answering book questions, although I do love me some books!

    ReplyDelete
  23. ~ A bad habit I’m going to break: Ah, I should probably stop going through my emails/comments/Goodreads/Twitter first thing in the morning, because I loose track of time and end up cramming my chores in a short span of it - or skipping them altogether. But I have so little time for socialising and keeping up with things as it is...So, it probably won't happen.

    ~ Book, movie, event you’re most looking forward to in 2019: I'm looking forward to the new Doctor Who series that will start on Jan 20th, and I hope the Good Omens miniseries with my boy David Tennant makes it to some Italian free channel! One track mind LOL.

    As usual...thank you Santa 😉. Let's see if I manage to win my second giveaway of the year LOL. (P.S.: your post says the givvy ends...on Jan 1st. Of course the Rafflecopter has the right date, but I just thought I'd point it out).

  26. What a great giveaway! Thanks so much for putting this together, and I love the New Year's prompts. Let me see how best I can answer some of these.

    ~ A bad habit I’m going to break: being noncommittal. If I want to do something, I'll do it. If I'm on the fence, maybe it's best to say no from the get.
    ~ A skill I’d like to learn: I'm not sure it counts, but I'd really like to master this crockpot stuff :)
    ~A new place I’d like to visit: Greece? Alaska? Africa? An island in the Caribbean I haven't explored previously?!
    ~ Book, movie, event you’re most looking forward to in 2019: Welp, I'm going to put it out in the universe, but I'd love to add to the family--either with a tiny human or furfriend this year :)

    Happy New Year, momma! XOXO

  27. I had a Harry Potter themed tree this Christmas and in looking around the web for handmade ornament ideas I saw a lot of cut paper decorations, and I would love to get some good scissors and try it! ✂

  28. ~ A bad habit I’m going to break: Stop eating so much junkfood

  30. It’s not one of your prompts but I know you usually pick a word for each year. This year is my first choosing a phrase for the year. Be present. I started taking yoga classes and it’s been great. I need to just get out of my head sometimes and be present. Stop overthinking. Just enjoy the moment for what it is.

If I can get started, that is, because life keeps throwing stuff my way (like two grandbabies coming to live with us).

  77. Happy late anniversary! Woots! And New Year, too :) Hmmm I'm not trying to break any bad habits I wouldn't say but create better ones. My big one is to do my 10,000 steps a day. I've gotten it 12 of the 14 days so far and those 2 days were herd baby emergency days and I still got 5k in which is more than I normally would get so a win in my book :)

    Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
