Na-na-na-hey-hey-hey-good-bye 2007!

Is it really the last day of the year?! I know it’s the most overused statement but it is also the most true one ever—TIME FLIES! I think as you get older it gets exponentially faster. And since Lydia was born I feel like we’re in warp speed!

So, even though my little blog is only 11 months old, I’m going to play along with There is No Place Like Home‘s 2007 Year-in-Review-Recap-Blah-Blah. (That’s my title, not hers.) Just post the first sentence of your first blog post of each month. You can also add a favorite picture from each month. (which I’m not going to do…sorry.)

January: (didn’t have a blog, remember? what did yall do without me? I mean, what did I do without you?!)

February: I’ve been dying to be a blogger for a while now.

March: I *heart* the library.

April: My husband just bought me this CD.

May: I’ve been wanting to enter this contest for a few days and just haven’t had a chance.


July: …read a book

August: This is my grandmother when she was 11 months old.

September: I’m all purple and beautiful!

October: I feel like I haven’t been home for 4 days!

November: You know the drill…my recap is up.

December: Week Five? Yikes!

And what have we learned from this recap?

1. I apparently do not like long sentences.

2. It is a miracle any of you have stuck around with first sentences like these! WOW. I’m going to have to work on those. (I was going to link to all those posts in case you might want to go back and read them but I think I’ll just let them be…)

Happy New Year anyway!


  1. Long sentences are overrated. Quick and fast — like a blog … like your year!

    Have a great ’08!

  2. It’s been a fun 11 months…
    2008 is gonna be GREAT!!!

  3. Oh Amanda…it’s been a great year!

  4. I can’t believe you’ve only been blogging 11 months, you’re so good at it!

    I enjoyed oh ho ho so much I decided to my own month of giveaways….I would love for you to stop by if you have the chance. 🙂

  5. When it comes to writing (especially blogging) less is more. See, you’re actully ahead of the curve!

    Here’s to a great ’08!

  6. What a great, fun way to wrap up the last year. I always wonder how to do that, and here you’ve got something super.

  7. LOL! Am I the only one planning to have great opening sentences in all my first of the month blog posts this year so I can have a great recap at the end of 2008? Teehee! 😉

    Happy New Year, Amanda!

  8. That was a lot of work! Happy New Year!

  9. Thank you so much for joining in the fun! Happy New Year!

  10. Happy New Year to you Amanda! I’m so glad you decided to jump on board the blog train – you rock!!

  11. I can’t believe you’ve only been blogging for 11 months too! Gracious – you are such a staple in the bloggy world. And honesty, short sentences rock.

    Really rock.

    Keep it up.

    I’ll be reading.

  12. I fear that my entire blog has been one long sentence. 🙂

    Thank you so much for sharing with us!
    Happy New Year!

  13. Happy New Year to you, too, my friend.
