2010...a Recap.

As we get ready to welcome in the New Year, I want to wish all of you good tidings and may all your wildest dreams come true!

Looking back on 2010...I'll just go ahead and declare it a success! We've got what matters most...our health and each other. Our bank accounts may be a little slimmer (no thanks to that dear old oak that fell upon our home), but our hearts are full.

Here are some of my favorites from the past year...crazy, how fast it's gone!

It's been nearly a year since I took the time to Hold 'Em Close...if only for just a couple more minutes.

Remember Baby Girl, enjoying her reflection in the mirror?! I'd forgotten too...but it's priceless! Who Needs Real Friends...

My very first which I sing a certain favorite Zac Brown Band song (Hint: Starts with "Chicken" ends with "Fried")...humiliating, totally did it to be a good sport! Ugh. A vlog...

This one makes me giggle just remembering it...on a date, a "business-ish" date with Mr. Wonderful, and I may, or may not have NOT acted my age. At. All. *chuckle* Why I Shouldn't Be Left Out of the House...

Then there was the "Mother's Day Mania" that I hosted, one day of which was "Birth Story" day, and I told the (rather hilarious) story of my 19 year old self giving birth to my first born. Birth Stories...

My thoughts on what you should (or shouldn't) take to the hospital when you birth a baby. A Talkin' Shop post. What to Bring to the Hospital...

A delightful photo of melted ice cream and sunburned shoulders...the things MinneSOOOOta summers are made of! I Lied...

After our road trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota, I came up with a few tips when Traveling with Children!...

Should you ever find yourself needing to make an insurance claim, you should read this post first...just so you can, ahem, prepare yourself! Making an Insurance Claim...A How To.

A post in which you will learn just how fabulous my communication and conflict handling abilities are. *insert snicker here* The Groom's Dinner...

Boy, I really enjoy humilitaing myself! A photo...from when I was 13ish...holy bangs, batman!! BTW...I've got another humiliating photo that I'm contemplating posting. Don't know if I have the guts tho' involves me, in a swimming suit. For now, enjoy this one! Oh. Em. Gee...

And, saving the best for last...the most fantastic thing EVER! A sister. For me. Exciting News!!...

It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)
