It's My Blogiversary!

My first blog post was one year ago today!

My blogging has gone through phases of greater and lesser activity over that time. I didn't blog as much in the last portion of that year as I did the first. I'm not sure if it was due to winter doldrums or the effects of pregnancy. It may even have to do with the fact that I like to post pictures with my posts, and I just don't have as many fun photo opportunities when the weather is poor and we're confined indoors, or aren't taking as many trips. I do love having documentation of the last year of my and my family's life. A lot has happened in this past year: having a new baby, fun family trips, milestones in my children's lives, becoming Primary President, a new motorcycle...

To celebrate, I was going to leave links to some of my favorite posts from the last year. But, instead, I am going to link to this post. It seems that the world of the world wide web is small indeed. The boy I admitted to having a crush on in 6th grade found my blog post about him and left a comment! I suppose including his full name in the post made his finding it very possible, although it certainly did not occur to me at the time. Anyways, Brant, if you happen to come back, thanks for the visit, the comment, and for outgrowing that hairdo! (And I hope you are well, too!)

On a side note, I started my new year's resolution "to get back into shape after the baby comes" today. I took before pictures to help inspire me. For a moment I considered posting them here. You, know, for the accountability thing. Then thought better of it. They are not pleasing to be viewed. But, more importantly, the previously mentioned incident clinched my decision. I'm pretty sure, "Hey, I used to have a crush on you, and check out this pouch I've got now..." is not the message I'm trying to promote here!


  1. My husband's ex-wife found my blog... I'd rather have an old crush reading it. I probably do for all I know!
    I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog. You are always able to bring a smile to my face.
    Happy Blogiversary!

  2. Happy Bloggiversary!

    I just wrote about mine and came over here to link yours because as I recall, you, Ity and I all started during the same week. Surprise that you had the same idea!

    Can you believe it has been a year? Crazy!

  3. Happy Bloggiversary!

    You are such a cute, smart and wonderful person! It's been fun keeping up with your sweet family!

  4. Happy Blogiversary!!! How funny/strange that your old crush found you! It makes me want to go private on my blog! You've had quite the year! :)

  5. Congrats on a year!!

    This post really cracked me up - I would have definitely turned a few shades of pink to have my 6th grade crush find a post I wrote about him!

    Good luck with your post-partum weight loss ... I'm excited to hear what you have planned and how it goes!! I've already packed on a whopping 33 pounds @ 26 weeks. YOWZER. Too bad I only know how to eat .... for four!!

  6. Happy Blogiversary!!! I can't believe he found you. That is so weird. Good luck with getting the baby weight off....you have never had a problem before, so I am sure you will do fine. You are probably still skinnier than me right now anyway!

  7. Happy 1 year! I'm coming up on mine soon too and I can't believe it's almost been a year.

    I love your blog!

  8. Nettie --

    I have linked to your blog a couple times from the LDS MOA site. I like it when people leave comments on my blog, so I'll try to comment when I read your blog. Your crocuses are so pretty! Good luck getting back in shape =) And Happy Bloggiversary!


  9. I really like your blog.. and you have a way fun personality!
    That story about Brant is hilarious... makes me think twice about what I've posted about!! :)
