Reminiscing: Top 11 of 2011

Sometimes I feel old when I notice how much I say things like, "man, they grow so fast" and "man, time sure does fly". I remember rolling my eyes at those crazy old people who used to say that to me when I was a kid. "I remember you when you were thiiiis big!". Okay, old lady, whatever. But seriously, people, kids do grow fast and time does fly! I can't believe it's already 2012!??

I'm not too concerned about blog stats but I like to keep an eye on my google analytics (mostly because I'm nosy). It's interesting to see what people read the most and how they find their way to my little piece of the internet. Here's a look at my top 11 posts of 2011. Forgive the "rerun" as my brother so kindly informed me, "isn't that kinda lazy?". Thanks, brother. I like to call it reminiscing, so let's reminisce...

London Fog

Guest room: wallpaper headboard

"Baby Wood" (my niece's) baby shower

Our big news of 2011

Emry's Baby Shower (plus cake pops!)

Nursery Reveal

A few oldies that keep making the rounds...

Our house guestbook

Here's to more good times in 2012!



  1. I love the look back! Reruns are great of you like what you're watching (remind your brother of that!) looking forward to 2012 :)

  2. I might have to have a London Fog soon, also maybe you can make me some of your famous puffed wheat squares, you know they are my favorite.
    I told you that time flies once you have kids, I think it starts flying when you get out of school. Enjoy every moment! Love you.

  3. Have always loved that vanity shot :)

    Here's to a very happy new year to you and the fam xo
