The Apex of My Year December 2013 Secret Subject Swap

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week, 12 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 

My fabulous subject was submitted by!! If you haven't already visited this blog, you definitely should. In fact, you should visit it often. It is one of my favorites!

My subject: What is the best thing that happened to you this year?

How many of you, that know me, already know my answer? Too bad. Keep reading anyways. :)

So much has happened to me this year. Really the past few years have been extremely eventful, and given the life I've lived, that is saying a lot. I'm blessed. Really and truly blessed. Sure, I have had some horrible things happen to me, but we all have horrible things happen. At the end of the day, when I sit back and think back on my life, I can happily report that the good things far outweigh the bad. By far, the best thing that has happened to me this past year, was Weewee. June 27, 2013 at 11:49 pm. By far the greatest moment of my life, not just this year. No matter what has happened in my past, or what happens in my future, I will always have that moment. It can never be taken from me. It will always be my magnificent moment. (I guess this is the part where I make the disclaimer, that yes, I realize it was Chad and I's moment... our moment... but for the purposes of this blog post... it is my moment... I am going to be greedy for a brief moment...) The moment when I was blessed so amazingly, with the most precious little girl. The moment when I felt a love so strong bombard my heart and explode around me. She is so amazing. I'm still so in love, and the love grows stronger and deeper daily. That moment when she was born, she filled my life with purpose and meaning, I hadn't even realised was missing. She completed my life and my world. I hadn't even known I was an incomplete person, until the moment she completed me. I'm certain she will bring even more "best moments" to me, over the years, but for now, her birth is my best moment of 2013. Hands down.

Rainbow Colored Glasses #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to March's Blog with Friends Round-up. Each month, a group of bloggers chooses a topic, and then creates blog posts based on that theme. The posts can include anything, from poetry and recipes, to short stories and informative essays, and often crafts or DIY projects. This month's chosen theme is rainbows.

I decided to do a round-up of awesome rainbow finds, that are reasonably priced, and an easy way for your to add more rainbows into your life. I personally love rainbows, and actually enjoy adding them into my life whenever possible. I especially like adding them into Gigi's wardrobe. My inspiration for the title of this post, were a pair of glasses I bought her. Rose colored glasses are cool, but rainbow colored is such a better view! Unless of course you love black, and then I am sorry.

I will be posting links to where you can find the items to buy. However, I encourage you to shop around, and see if you are able to find any better deals. I also want you to know,…

A group of bloggers chooses a theme for the month, and then we all create unique posts, based on the same theme. Then we link up together, and provide y'all with a round-up!! The posts can contain anything... Recipes, poetry, short stories, a crafting how to, a DIY how to, and everything in between!! Each month is unique and fun!!

Our theme for February is Winter Activities!! You may be thinking... You are in California, what could you possibly have to contribute about winter activities!? Well, you would be right. LOL. However, I have not lived here my entire life. Plus, I have the unique "joy" of being sensitive to colder temperatures. So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

Duke #FunnyFriday

Welcome to this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Minette of Southern Belle Charm.

1. Duke: Just five more minutes!
2. Duke: You want me to walk further?! That will cost you a Milk bone.
3. Duke: Mommmm, whyyyyyyy?! Can we just stop walking now?! Do we really need to walk more?! I mean, we have to be a solid ten feet from the porch. That is enough walking right?!
4. Duke: If you insist on bringing me to the vet, you will have to carry me. I will not aid in this. The last time you took me there, well, we just won't discuss that.
5. Duke: Must take a quick nap. That Thanksgiving feast wore me out. So. Much. Chewing.
