As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m working on a new project! I’m excited and apprehensive about tackling this because it’s sure to be a huge undertaking. With my busy schedule and baby on the way, I’m gonna do my best to keep up.

I’ve had this blog for two years now. Looking back, I’m proud to have been able to stay connected family and friends. But most importantly, this has been a diary for my kids to read one of these days. With that said, my friend Jen (aka Baby Making Mama) put me on to this great idea. It’s called “30 Things My Kids Should Know About Me.” It’s supposed to be done in 30 days, but we all know that ain’t happening. I may have to take breaks, depending on how hectic things get. Feel free to join in, the more the merrier! If you stop by Jen’s site, you’ll also find FREE downloadable graphics. My buddy Chade helped me out with the graphic you see above, and my hubby took the photo.

Once I’ve completed this project, I’ll be turning it into a book. Here goes!


1. List 20 random facts about yourself.
2. Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears.
3. Describe your relationship with your spouse.

    What a good idea! I think I may just copycat this!!!
    I’ve been thinking about you lately and meaning to email you to try and catch up. Hope you and your family are well.

    Such a cute idea. Although I won’t be having anymore children. I don’t think it is too for me to make one for my 4 year olds.

    I’m loving this series! I always have thought of my blog as a running family album anyways. This is so meaningful 🙂
