Deck the walls update: I was able to pop over to my sister’s house this weekend to check out the progress of Bean’s big girl room. It’s off to a great start, now we just need to do the finishing touches.
It finally is starting to feel like spring, and to celebrate, we took Sid to Gray’s Lake to walk the path on Saturday. It was a little windy, but she didn’t mind!
On Sunday, we had the opportunity to be a part of our niece Stella’s Baptism. She was a rock star and didn’t let out a peep during the entire service.
I am constantly amazed with some of the bloggers I have met over my few years of blogging and since entering the wonderful world of social media. One of those happens to be Brianne over at BS in the Midwest who I had the opportunity to meet at the Go Red for Women luncheon last year. She ‘tagged’ me via her blog post, so now it’s my turn.
Here’s what I’m supposed to do:
- Write 11 random facts about yourself.
- Answer the 11 questions given by the person who nominated you.
- Create 11 new questions.
- Nominate 11 bloggers and mention them in your post. (I only named 5, whoops)
- Thank the person that nominated you and tell the people you’ve nominated.
