Goodbye 2012… belated and picture heavy

February 12th, 2013

So my husband is out of town for work and I don’t know why, but I get more done when he’s NOT here. Maybe because I just want to hang out with him once the kids are in bed. Without him here, I can spend more time on my laptop and more time tidying etc. Anyway I was going through my blog last night looking for some pictures to share with a friend, and I really loved reading it! I loved seeing all my weekly updates, about my son and the home renovations. It’s such a great record of our lives, and I’m mad/sad that I haven’t given it the time (or had the time) to blog much since getting pregnant and having a second baby. I need to re-commit and really make it a priority – heaven knows I still waste plenty of time even with 2 kids and a job – so I just need to get into the habit of filling wasted time with blogging instead of wasting it. Like right now – I nursed the baby at 5 am and can’t go back to sleep – I could just surf the internet or I could actually do something worth while! Oh and I’m so sorry about my poor grammar, my brain has officially stopped working since having baby 2 and I can hardly construct working sentences. Please forgive me!! On a side-note I’m now on Instagram – so follow me there – /theprojectgirl

In my blog reading last night, I came across my Goodbye 2011 post and LOVED reading it so much that I knew I needed to do one for 2012 even though we’re 6 weeks into 2013. I guess thats better than 6 months into 2013. Better late than never. So without further ado (sorry about so much ado)…


In 2012…

I became a mom… again

Was way too lazy while pregnant (I think I don’t like being pregnant very much at all)

Was really happy to NOT be pregnant those last two months

Gained and lost 20lbs

Finished renovating our home

Relied on my husband more

Relied on God more

Missed my extended family  a lot

Watched my baby turn into a boy

Purchased a lot of toys (who knew you needed so many?)

Traveled a little

Decorated a lot

Stretched my time within an inch of it’s life

Spent way too much time on my computer/phone/ipad and too little of it with my babies

Spent too little time nurturing my relationship with my husband (I promise I’ll do better in 2013!)

Made a few life-long friends

Learned how much I am loved

Was blessed way way more than I deserve.

Word of the year: FULL

Our home, hearts, and hands are full, and I couldn’t be happier.
