New Year's Resolutions - Taylor Hicks Style

As 2008 quickly comes to its close, it’s time to make my resolutions for 2009! And what resolutions I have made! It was impossible to rank them because for me, these all take top priority to have a great year. I’m sure you’ll agree with me, and you might even be able to help me add to the list!

My New Year’s Resolutions for 2009

  • See Taylor Hicks as ‘Teen Angel’ at least one week-end as he makes his way across the US in the “Grease” National Tour
  • Spend lots of week-ends enjoying my granddaughters and have them spend the week-ends with me when possible!

  • Finally put together my scrapbook of all the Taylor Hicks concerts that I attended in 2007

  • Walk a little more and eat a little less, which includes more cooking at home and less eating out

  • Watch Taylor Hicks in as many concerts or after-shows as possible, given the current state of the economy

  • Make sure that everything I do is both purposeful and fun!

  • Make sure I get at least two copies of “The Distance” when it’s released in early spring – one for the car and one for the house!

  • Give thanks for all blessings that I receive during the year, and remember the source from which those blessing come

  • Support those that need it with my time and resources, whether it’s a contribution to Kid One Transport or sending Taylor Hicks’ CDs to our troops

  • Watch “Whomp at the Warfield” at least 10 times and enjoy it more each time!

  • Live each day to its fullest and say “thank you” at the end of each day

  • Travel with friends and family whenever the opportunity arises, especially if a Taylor Hicks performance is part of the activities!

  • Live well, love much and laugh often – because these are the secrets to a happy life!

Happy New Year Everyone!

May 2009 be the best year ever!

Mandy, as usual, a very nice blog. I hope it is a wonderful year for Taylor. He has worked so hard, and deserves so much. 2008 was a very busy year for him. I'm looking forward to 2009 and hope to see you, and my Soul Patrol friends on the road again at a Taylor concert.

Happy New Year!

I love the part about WATW. Since 10/07/07 (Taylor's 31st BD) I have seen that AMAZING concert (thanks to HDNet) at least 20 times, both by myself and with friends, who gave it great reviews!

I SO look forward to the DVD on 3/17/09 and plan to watch it again and again, just like you.

Make it a Taylor-ific 2009!!! And good luck with the rest of your resolutions.
