The One Where I Contemplate Life and Blogging

So. I haven't blogged in well over a year. I still read a lot of blogs but I just don't feel like I am interesting enough or have much to say. I have seen many blogs go by the wayside in the past two years. It seems like the "fad" is over. There are definitely some that are here to stay. But many do not have the time or the inclination anymore. Many of the blogs that I still follow, I have been reading them for around 7-8 years. That seems like a crazy long time to me. Some of them I may only comment very rarely on, if at all. And most do not come here, to my little (boring) space. Then, when one of them stops blogging, I really do feel like I've lost a friend, even if I never knew them in real life. Does anyone else feel the same? I have seen a resurrection of a few blogs that I really missed. So I guess there's that. I kind of miss the blogging universe, but I really need to figure out what to blog about. I may be might take me a year. Or I might not. We'll have to see where life takes me. How dramatic. :)

The One With The 2012 Summer Olympics

Ok, I miss the Olympics already and they just ended last night. My favorite events were gymnastics, swimming, women's beach volleyball, platform diving, track and field and kayaking. Here's a cute little video that the USA swim team made to Call Me Maybe.....I love it! I can't wait for Rio 2016!! What are your favorite events? What are you most looking forward to for the next Summer games?

The One With Fifty Shades of Grey

Before I tell you what I think of them, what do you think of 50 Shades of Grey? Horrible? Wonderful? Wish there were more? Wish you'd never heard of them? Do you think there will be a movie made based on them? Do you hate them? I just read the first one and have formed my own opinion, but I'm curious to hear other thoughts.

The One With My Music

I recently found out that a whole bunch of the music that I put on Itunes mysteriously disappeared. Like, more than half, at least 3000 songs or more. I have no idea how or when this happened, but I have spent the last few nights (and will spend quite a few more) re-uploading all of our CD's back onto my computer. The worst part is there is no rhyme or reason. It's not like I'm missing entire albums, just a few or most of the songs, never all of them. WTF, Itunes? At least everything I've paid for is safe.

The best part is going through all of our seriously eclectic music collection. Oh, and remembering that I know every.single.word to "We Didn't Start the Fire" by Billy Joel. It's a classic.

The One With Some Goals

I can't believe it's 2012 already.....where the heck did 2011 go? I can't believe I will be 31 in a few short months. WOW.

I am attempting to set a few (loose) goals for 2012.

1.) Read 52 books.
2.) Make 50 scrapbook pages.
3.) Make 15 knitted projects.
4.) Take one *big* trip this year (VA, hopefully) and one *smaller* trip (WI or up north camping, perhaps).
5.) Keep up my healthier lifestyle.
6.) NO purchasing new yarn or scrapbook supplies for (atleast) the first 6 months of the year.
7.) Declutter & get rid of some junk/clothes/stuff.

Have you set any goals or resolutions for the New Year? If so, what? I'd love to hear!

The One With a Happy Saturday!

Happy Saturday!

Things that are making me happy today:

1.) Attending my first craft fair of the year with my mom in LaCrosse this week.

2.) SNOW! The first couple snows of the season are always my favorite. So fresh, clean & white. After Christmas, I'm over it, but right now it's magical.

3.) Spending Thanksgiving with my boyfriend's sweet family (all 50+ of them).

4.) My sister returns to the US in 27 days. (Who says I am counting?)

5.) Buying the last 2 Harry Potter movies on DVD so we can have an EPIC marathon next week.

6.) Hot apple cider.

7.) The Packers are 9-0! (They beat the heck out of the Vikings last week. Dad would be so proud.)

8.) Pinterest.

What's making you happy today?
