Happy New Year

This past year has been quite amazing. 
~Jan 2011~
I announced my pregnancy to friends and my lovely readers.
I also created a set of free party circle printables
 ~Feb 2011~

Made two sets of free Super Bowl printables
 ~March 2011~
I posted my first “bump” photo and not much else during the month of March. The pregnancy was certainly getting the best of me February through April!
~April 2011~
Did my first {Mommy Monday} post. Becoming a mommy was the biggest thing in my life and I felt that I needed to share it here on my blog. Thanks for taking the journey with me!
~May 2011~
I started to get back into the swing of blogging when May hit. 
I had several real party features as well as a few {Mommy Monday} posts and DIYs. 
My Chalkboard Mug DIY tips is still one of my most popular posts according to the page views. 
~June 2011~ 
were featured on Hostess with the Mostess. 
~July 2011~
During July I really hit my posting stride and had 24 posts about DIY projects, baking recipes and more. One of my favorite posts was sharing my recipe for Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes.

~Aug 2011~
In August I announced the arrival of my little man. 

~Sept 2011~
In September I shared two of my real parties— My Beer before Baby Party that I threw for my husband and A Library Themed Birthday Party for a friend.
 ~Oct 2011~
In October I traveled with an infant on a plane, enjoyed being a family of three, and planned a Halloween party.
~Nov 2011~
In November I went to my first Portland Blogger Meet Up 
and had Baby Shower Week here on the blog.
 ~Dec 2011~
December has probably been my busiest month so far this year. 
I haven’t even had much time to blog about it all. 
But, one of my favorite activities had to be participating in the Lovely Package Exchange
Here is to hoping you also had a wonderful year.  
And, a very happy New Year. 

Happy 2012!
