My EXTRAVAGANT First Quarter!

I haven't quite decided the best way to do this yet, but is that going to stop me? 


Let's start at the very beginning...a very good place to start (Julie Andrews.  Sound of Music.  Anyone???)


I started my blog!  January 1st to be exact, and I'm happy to see that there was finally a resolution of sorts that I was able to keep!

I admitted to the world my love for Jake Pavelka, and proceeded to bore you with my thoughts on "The Bachelor" for the entire first quarter, and some of the second.

Basically, I was VERY new to blogging, and was not entirely entertaining. 


I seemed to have found my bloggy niche by then.  I actually had a few posts that I'm not embarrassed to claim I penned!

Like THIS ONE where I told Bug he'd only get toilet paper for his birthday.

WE GOT SNOW!!!  No really!  We did!

Boo did a little art project while the rest of us were sleeping AT NIGHT.

And I wrote one of my favorite posts about an Iniana Jones type adventure.

On the creative side, I finally figured out how to decorate my mantel.  And it is awesome. 


I got an iPhone.  It has been my lifeline since then, and I have no idea how I lived without one.

I shared with you all the woes of people misspelling my name.

I celebrated a very important anniversary.

I started Quince Quote.

And my favorite post of the month included the season passes we purchased to Six Flags.

So, that about wraps up the first quarter of my year!  What did YOU do?

I didn't know you started on the 1st. How perfect is that? If you choose to do one of those books to recap your year..,you've got it made!

I love, love, love your mantel!!

Amy said...

Ha! I love that she got up while everyone was sleeping to work on her art. That is awesome. Beautiful mantle, and it was nice and easy to get to know you more, through this genius idea!

Emmy said...

Hey I didn't realize I almost followed you from the beginning! Though I missed the bachelor month hehe.

Great recap

MiMi said...

Ahhh, craptastic, I forgot to put everyone's buttons!!!!
Anyway, I didn't realize you JUST started your blog in January!
It's it funny how you can see a big difference in past and present posts??

I LOVE your mantle. I fear that brennan will do just that art project in the middle of the night when I finally free him from his crib. Or cage as I think of it. Seeing as he's almost 3 and I still have him in it. I will contInue on in our crib life until he's oh about thirty.

Em said...

Oh crap I spelled mantel wrong. And my iPhone changed my life. In the literal sense. Sometimes I think that should be an embarrassing fact about me, but other times it just makes me THAT much cooler!!!
