I’m ready for a new year and a fresh start 2009. It’s been one heck of a ride this year but I’m hoping for more promise with the start of 2010.
2009 had it’s share of laughs and funs but there were also far far too many tears. 2010, let’s turn things for the better for all. Bring hope and promise for new goals, new experiences, and new friendships sure to come.
As a blog, it was an amazing year. I am proud of For The Love of Baby and what we have become!
With the New Year, For The Love of Baby! celebrated the New Year with talk of goals for the New Year. All of you also got to see a pretty rocking Red Hairstyle (oh how I miss it!) that I’ve been told I pulled off quite nicely. I also got a new piercing-a microdermal that was in the small of my back.
It was hard to believe my little Kelsie turned 2. I am so proud of my big girl. With February, we all took a huge hit in our family. We were forced to say goodbye to our family rock. As we were forced to say Goodbye to Grandpa. Shortly after, my Grandma had an accident and hospitalized. Grandma did not have it fair at all.
I also made a list of some goals to accomplish for 2009. I’d say I succeeded 50/50 on that list.
I turned 22. CRAZY. LOL.
We had a guest blogger, Cheryl from Lipz Unzipped and yes, she did it. She talked about SEX.
My cousin and I came up with 25 Different Ideas for Blog Posts when that dreaded Writer’s Block hits.
As warm weather came on, For The Love of Baby! got some exciting news. I was contacted by Jennifer at Iowa State Daily, telling me I was Number One Twitterer in Ames. Aubrey and I were seen on the front cover of Iowa State Daily and we talked a bit about what it’s like to be a blogger.
WWE Raw also came to Des Moines and I got to get up close and see drool over John Cena.
One of my favorite posts of all time-it gave me the chance to be creative and share my beautiful little girls, In My Daughter’s Eyes
Thousands upon thousands headed to Chicago for the annual BlogHer Conference. We had some fun, including the good ole sugar packet toss into the cleavage.
I also took the chance to show you some other Bloggers from Iowa
September 8th would have been my Grandfather’s 73rd Birthday.
I found out I wasn’t the only one having problems with QWEST (that have still continued).
It is amazing some of the people you meet online and the friendships that can develop. Tanya from MommyGoggles and I had our first girls night out and of course, it’s developed into an awesome friendship.She also came back to get her nose pierced.
I shared my poor experience with FedEx.
Earth Angel Mama Baby gave me the chance to share with you all about the relaunch of their baby loss comfort site.
The end of November was hard. While my dad might have been around when I was younger, I lost him shortly before Thanksgiving.
Poor Kelsie had to head to the ER, one of the worst experiences a parent can have.
As our year comes to an end, Iowa had an EPIC Snow Storm.
Have you heard of Hold Your Head High Gorgeous? This poem is inspiration for all.
We all cried and showed support for a fellow blogger during her tragedy.
I opened up as well about wearing your heart on your sleeve.
This year has brought many experiences. We hope that you will continue on as we head into 2010 with many more stories to tell and share with all of you!
