Happy One-Year Blogiversary!

Yeah! I've been blogging for a whole year now. I started July 14 2005 and today is july 14 2006. A whole year! So much has happened and changed. I've had so many interesting things happen that i've written about.

So, today i'm going to reminisce over my favorite past posts.

July 17 2005. Motherhood Joys. There are so many great things about being a mommy, and these are just a few that i wrote awhile ago. Its kinda funny now, b/c some are totally different.

August 3. I laughed, i cried, it moved me-- commercials part one. I did a whole "series" on commercials. But this was the first, and my favorite. Because i shared about a commercial for the Baltimore Aquarium that made me cry everytime i saw it.

August 12. The only way to get rid of temptation is to give in to it-- commercials part 2. My other favorite commercials post was about products that i bought b/c the commercials persuaded me to.

September 12. 5...4...3...2...1... Launch! This is the first time that erica started to crawl. Its funny to remember her doing her little "leap."

September 23. The Man around Town. This is my first entry about the man around town. Spotting him around town is like playing "Where's Waldo." Its quite fun.

October 14. Nasty, Nastier, Nastiest. Yes, i wrote an entire entry on baby food. and yes, i tasted them all.

November 18. Lets see how random i can make this. This is probably my FAVORITE post. Just b/c i love being random. and also, its kinda funny that i almost tripped and fell down the stairs.

November 23. I think the worst is over. If you are one of those people against cruelty to animals, dont check out the post. We had mice in our house and had to kill them off.

December 4. Its begining to look a lot like christmas. yes, i enjoyed decorating for christmas. So much fun.

December 20. Feliz Cumpleanos! My blog celebrated 100 posts. So, i decided to share w/ everyone WHY i like to blog.

January 6, 2006. Nasty no more-- the discourse on baby food continues. So, by this point erica was starting to give up a lot of jarred baby food. Today erica eats all big-people-food.

January 12. One small step for baby. erica began taking steps. And i also shared a picture of her various shoes. ... i love shoes!

January 14. My awesome husband. Yes, andrew wrote this post. I'm still not quite sure how...

January 19. The start of a new series. I did a series on PA dutch. So, i didnt really get too far. But this is a fun list of pennsylvania things. [the true/false quiz was also fun to do.]

Feb 19. My daughter, the scandalous temptress. This was a hillarious story! erica was w/ some other little toddlers, and everytime she bent over her diaper stuck out. So the one boy stuck his finger down her crack!!!

February 23. what a cute hospital gown! remember when erica was so sick that she had to go to the hospital? If you dont remember, read it. You can also check out the previous post that explains more of how she got sick.

March 1. Little lancaster county chick gets lost in the big city. holy cow! i remember getting lost in Philly! it was awful.

March 6. Its my party and i'll cry if i want to! Erica's birthday party was so much fun.

March 22. Writer's Block. When i couldnt think of anything to write, i decided to reminisce over all the cartoons and things from when i was a kid.

April 20. Easter. I have lots of cute pictures. Easter was fun.

May 8. He's alive-- and other little tidbits to share. Okay, lots here. the man around town made a comeback. But the most memorable thing i wrote: Erica had her first public temper tantrum. Not fun.

May 13. Whats black and blue and red all over?--Me!!! Yes, its quite an embarrassing story.

June 6. The funniest thing EVER! i shared a video clip of a guy dancing. it was great fun.

July 5. A Drought. This is my most recent "favorite." We had so much fun at the PA Folk Festival. And i'll add a little update: i got my bloodwork results [though i need to call back b/c they didnt actually mention anything about the B12 levels] and my iron is REALLY low. i need to start taking supplements. Oh, and my toe is okay.

Hopefully my blog lasts another year! its getting harder to find the time for it. and its even harder to find the time to read other blogs. But i really do enjoy it!!!

thanks Blogger!
