Blogiversary

My Blogiversary is coming up! That is right! I started blogging 1 year ago on
July 15th. I can't help but think about how my family (and my blogging) has changed over the past year. Wade has gotten one year older (which we all know that first year of babyhood is PACKED with milestones)... Abby started First Grade, Jaxon ...well, he was Jaxon, and we packed up our life and belongings and moved to Arizona! In the middle of summer! (We crazy)

My blog originally started as a way to keep in touch with my family that lived out of state and keep them up on our family life. I also loved posting recipes (I just haven't been cooking new things lately folks..come on, I just moved) as a matter of fact, I posted SOOOOOO many, I started a different blog just for that! Then I found the "blogging" world and a whole new way of expressing myself emerged. It was at that point that my husband claims my blog became all about ME... yep.. It is.. because I am writing it.. so there. He claims that he is going to start his own "our family blog" but you know.. that will happen when pigs fly, so, until then, I still post from time to time about my cute, adorable FAMILY!

As part of my celebration... I will be doing a GIVEAWAY.. But we will have to wait until the 15th for that. Until then I had a fun time looking over my blog and picking out MY favorite blog posts... Here are my top 10.

**I loved calling out the lurkers and even got some new blog friends out of it!

**I love it when randomness happens around the house and you get to catch it for posterity... I mean, I would have never even THOUGHT of that before blogging....

**Being unable to sleep NEVER happens to me.. but when it did, this is what happened...

**I have a few obsessions and I enjoy blogging about them. Here is my favorite obsession.

**From time to time processing my feelings on-line really helps. On this one, I about had a nervous breakdown. I am glad I could share it with all of you.

**Blogging about Jaxon is just inevitable. Here was an epiphany I had about him.

**I have a house full of artists...really.. Abby is my favorite budding artist and here is why.

**Here is all of my deep dark secrets. Betcha didn't know I am best friends with Justin Timberlake, did ya!

**For those of you who think that miracles no longer happen on earth, I am here to prove you WRONG.

**I LOVE the funny things my kids do and trying to capture those moments. This and this are my favorite on camera and this and this are my favorite videos...

Which are your favs?

Happy Blogiversary! Thanks for sharing all that you do of your life and the way you navigate through it! I always scan my reader to see if you have a new post before I dive into the abyss of blogs!

Happy Blogiversary!

I loved your calling out the lurkers post. I was sure glad I had been commenting :)

I'm thinking of doing one myself when I get the guts.

JBelle said...

All of it. Absolutely all of it. Well actually, the anniversary blog. Exquisite. Happy Anniversary, LLL! You're awesome!

the LURKERS post was the best one ever... because it helped all of us! all of those lurkers felt bad I guess, and now they all comment. THANK YOU!

HAPPY BLOGAVERSARY!

Now I'll see the love. thanks for your post, btw, and congratulations! and I am with you on the 35 thing, but that still gives me a year and a half! yikes!

I hope you get a great present from your husband.

My blog is about me and my observations in my family; no family blog. I need to have some corner where I can express my thoughts as Ilene not as Mommy or Wife; I do that all day long as it is. Ya know?

I personally loved all the post-Kidman comments. Wow. What a doozy.

Are you back yet? I am a very bad friend.

Heidi said...

Hey you have had quite a year blogging and I know you have had lots of fun doing it. THanks for getting me to join the bandwagon so we can keep in touch, especially now that you moved away from me. I liked the teddy bear in time out!

Tiffany said...

Linds, you are seriously such a riot! I only wished I could have actually met you while you were visiting SLC. I haven't read all of your MANY and I mean MANY entries, but sometimes you blog the words right out of my mouth! :) Keep the blogs coming!

jessica said...

Calling out bloggers was awesome! I loved learning your deep darkest secrets...I'm totally friends with Faith Hill in my dreams.

And all of the Batchelor/ Bachelorette stuff cracks me up!

But hands down my fav post was when you took like 5o pictures of yourself at all different angles while sitting in your car. It still makes me giggle.

I just love reading whatever you post.
