Tomorrow is the day.  A full YEAR of blogging daily.  Its been fun.  It was a challenge at times to come up with stuff to write about!  I will continue to blog in 2012 but probably not daily - might be weekly, might be twice a day!  We'll have to see what's going on that day.  :-)

Here is a look back at the fun we had in 2011:

Sledding with little friends.

House for sale (STILL FOR SALE)

29th birthday (spent with the stomach flu!)

Hosted a Mad Men Party

Joined a CSA

Won tickets to Antiques Roadshow

 1st Annual Mad Men Pub Crawl

Took part in Open Streets on Lyndale Ave.

First time at the State Fair.

Lucas got run over.

Met new friends (who've been "old" online friends for years)

Zombie Pub Crawl

Mary Poppins and Bert for Halloween

Christmas Light Limo Ride

Christmas 2011

I've already blogged about all the new restaurants we love so I'll spare you that.  :)  Looking forward to new restaurants, new adventures and more time with friends (this is a resolution - I feel like we barely hung out with our friends last year) in 2012!  Happy New Year!

Christmas with my family tonight.   Loved my mom's gift tags - pictures of us!

That would be me dressed up in my "Christmas" hat and nightgown when I was about 3.

My niece when she was about 1.

 Me in an ugly Christmas sweater and a permed mullet.  Ah, the 80's.

 The niece now.

Ash and Benny.

 Damian ready for presents.  He asked about 284 times when we could open them....


 The pups got stuffed Angry Birds!

Santa was good to us!

Thank you mom, dad and family for wonderful Christmas!  Love you all!

So I miscounted my number a while back so if you take the time to go back through all my posts the number order is off, lol - and I'm not about to go back and edit them all.  :-)   But today *is* #360.  5 days left. I've been asked if I will keep blogging - I think so.  Probably not daily.  But I'll continue to share recipes, blogs, websites, make up stuff, outfits, etc.

In the meantime if you can think of something for me to blog about these last 5 days, feel free to ask!

Things Coming up in early 2012 to blog about include:

Ice Shanty's on Medicine Lake
Art Sled Rally
Winter Carnival maybe (I've never been!)
My Faboosh 30th Birthday Party
A trip to Colorado in there somewhere
More restaurants to try!

My Polyvore addiction continues...  I've seen this done on Pinterest so I did my own take - outfits based on Disney Princesses.   Fun fun!  I'm doing Disney Villains next.  :)  If you guys have any suggestions let me know!
