Musings of a Housewife is holding a blog recap carnival. You take the first few sentences of your first post of each month and post them. However, I realized my archives apparently start from the end, so all mine are linked to the last post of each month. Whatever.
I still saw some themes for 2010. Some standards…the kids (Lexi started K!), TV, blogging (I sold OneTreeHillBlog.com!), fashion. Some new things like cooking through The Pioneer Woman’s cookbook which turned my cooking world upside down. And most importantly, growing closer to Christ. It’s been a good, changing year for me. I would say, even, that this was a defining year. I can honestly say I feel like a different person than this time last year and really, what more could you ask for?
Happy New Year, y’all!
January In small group we’re reading through John together. It’s been great to read back through Jesus’ life and it always inspires awe when I read all the miracles. But when I got to John 9:25 just now, I wanted shout and give a big fist pump for God.
February OK, now that I’ve heard all 24 I can say without a doubt this may be the worst Top 24 in quite some time. I don’t know if the sound is just so bad on our end or the nerves are really getting to these guys or the talent is just lacking but SOMEthing is up. This has got to get better soon or we’re in for a very painful season.
March This week has been tough in fan-site ownership. Drama abounds. And not just silly drama. Drama that made a person involved cry for hours. And it’s not just one incident, I’ve seen it since Day 1 on my other sites. People can be nasty, hateful, rude. It’s sad really when all we’re trying to do is promote something we love and have to deal with the crap we deal with. But it got me thinking today.
April This is kind of heavy stuff for a Friday afternoon but I just can’t get these verses out of my head. I shared them with our small group last week and it wasn’t enough to get it off my heart.
May So for whatever reason you can’t get to your blog (or Twitter or Facebook). Yourworkhasprobablyblockedit#ahem. But don’t worry! You CAN still post to it…even on your cell phone! Posterous.com to the rescue!
June Alternately title: I’M FINISHED!!!!!! I got so excited yesterday realizing I only had one left that I decided to go ahead tackle the end of the book. I also realized I’d never made the Pot Roast either! So I tackled both the Breakfast Bowls and Pot Roast as my last dishes of the book.
July You know what’s depressing? Having your Wii Fit tell you you gained 4 lbs. since your last workout.
August I started browsing Old Navy’s site the other day and just couldn’t quit mentally adding items to my wish list. The past few seasons with Old Navy have been sketchy for me.
September Tonight I got a pedicure and it wasn’t a normal pedicure for a few reasons. This pedicure went to a good cause and it wasn’t just my desperate feet! The best kind of pedicure right? Teal for Toes is an organization that helps raise awareness about ovarian cancer.
October The title of Chapter 6 is How Much is Enough?: American Wealth and a World of Poverty. Platt spends the chapter discussing the blind spot of materialism we have and how God wants us to open our blind eyes to the poverty of the world.
November I’ve been in the blogging world now for almost NINE years. Yep. I’ve learned a thing or two about blogging and today I’ve taken a look at my favorite blogs and compiled of list of things that make me love them. AND things that have made me hit that awful Unsubscribe button in my reader. I’m learning too even after 9 years so I’m taking notes on my notes!
December On Black Friday, I bought a handful of stuff from Old Navy that I decided to get as as a Christmas gift from my in-laws. Included was a pair of fleece pajama pants.
