The Best of This Southern Girls 2009

Happy New Year to y’all!  I hope that you make those resolutions {if your a resoluting setting type of person} and reach ‘um and go further than you ever imagined yourself doing!

I have a lot to work on in 2010.  But right now, this post is about the best of 2009…This Southern Girls 2009, to be exact.

In January I faced a fear of going under the knife when I had my wisdom teeth removed.  I was scared to death to be put to sleep but I came through like millions of others do daily.

In February I vowed to finish out kitchen, but never got around to it.  So it still sits incomplete. 

In March I was busy as a bee.  Starting Kelsie’s Pottery Barn inspired bedroom and the girls bathroom.

In April I started reading Twilight and I also began the Spring Fitness Challenge.  As well as started What’s For Dinner Thursdays here on the blog.

In May I revealed Kelsie’s bedroom, and watched my 10 year old grow up.

In June I won the Spring Fitness Challenge, therefore proving to myself that I can do ANYTHING that I really set my mind to do.  I updated a mirror that was in our home for as long as I can remember.  I learned that not everybody can make those infamous cupcake pops.  And I made a super cute 4th of July Raggamuffin garland.

In July I made the most awesome memo board.  Painted Kayla’s desk and chair.  I also learned how to clean sterling silver jewelry for practically free!

In August I made the tough decision at sending Kelsie to pre k as opposed to home schooling her.

September I showed y’all the easiest fall craft ever

In October Zack and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary.  I made felt Halloween ornaments, and a scary craft.  And we bought the biggest thing of crushed garlic I could find! {btw, we are only half way through it}

November rolled around and on the 2nd I could no longer wait to pull out my Christmas decorations.  The girls’ trees went up first.  I also discovered that I was Kelsie’s best friend.   And of course New Moon came out so I had to dedicate a post to it!

And then December…the last bit of 2009. I was so busy with school parties for both girls and then baking all sorts of goodies to snack on.  I didn’t get many things posted but I tried to at least join in the home tours, we fed the reindeer and made home made apple cider

And that was the best {and maybe not so best} of 2009.  2010 bring it on!

I'm so impressed. I don't think I could do a wrap-up that wouldn't be 2 feet long! I hope that 2010 is a wonderful year for you too!
