Hi everybody! Ok, so WordPress just emailed my stats for 2012, and tho my numbers may seem low, I’m actually pretty surprised that they’re so high! For my first year on this blog!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,400 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 7 years to get that many views.

My post Blessings (10/31/12) had the highest views (168!). And there are people from 31 countries that read my blog (mainly the US, Canada, and the UK)!

Pretty cool!

This year has been a whirlwind – being pregnant, going through labor and delivery, holding my very own baby for the first time, moving, the fire, moving again, moving once more, going thru drivers ed, getting my license, buying a car with Dan, getting my boating license, getting baptized, rehoming my dog Maisy, the world ending, starting new hobbies like sewing, being a SAHM, then getting a job as a nanny, and finally paying off all of my debt! (Yep, I’m going into 2013 debt free baybay! ;D)

What a year!

My plans for 2013:
• Start school again
• Donate at least 10% of my income
• Get a pass to SWCC and take Owen swimming on a regular basis again!
• Get back into eating healthier and working out regularly again (this is a must)
• Do more stuff with Dan – fishing, crabbing, shooting, movies, dates, kissing, camping, concerts, tubing – anything! Having a baby is such an interesting experience; we are obviously together a lot to take care of Owen, but at the same time we can seem so distant because everything is about raising a baby and it can be easy to forget to nurture our relationship too. So more time with Dan doing the things we want and love to do is goin on the list 🙂

Well that just about wraps up this year! Thank you everyone who reads this! I hope you all had a great 2012 and an even better 2013! 😀
