2012 has come and gone and this year has been one for the
books blog. I’d like to take a minute to reflect on some of our favorite highlights of 2012. What was your favorite moment of 2012?
While we were in Ohio for the Bismillah we also celebrated Elia’s 1st birthday (early) with Zameer’s side of the family. This short little video just cracks me up. As you can hear in the background there’s lots going on but none of it is going to distract her from enjoying her first piece of cake!
This was one of my favorite (and first) DIY projects of 2012. I converted a garage sale baby changing table to a fun beverage cart for our new deck. Check out how I did it HERE.
Exactly THREE days after hosting Elia’s first birthday party we were scheduled for another embryo transfer hoping to give Elia a little brother or sister (or maybe one of each). We were so excited to find out just nine days later that we were indeed pregnant and that the procedure was successful. We are due April 4th and could not possibly be any more excited. Boy or girl?

As if July couldn’t have been any more exciting, I added one more element. I started doing independent contract work for V3 Integrated Marketing and Social Media Agency. This was and still is such a wonderful opportunity–I absolutely love it and my entire team!
In September, I was able to attend the Bloggy Moms Conference in Cincinnati and met so many wonderful women, some of which I had already ‘met’ through blogging. I learned so many new things and have started to incorporate them into my blog and social media strategy. I never imagined that I would even have a ‘social media strategy’ just two months into blogging!
October brings one of our favorite weekends of the year…The American Royal BBQ competition! I have been planning a BBQ post for quite some time, it really is over due. Stay tuned!
We were so fortunate to be able to travel to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to celebrate the wedding of our dear friends Paul and Danielle. We had such an amazing time with this group of old and new friends and made memories that will last a lifetime.
Meanwhile, back at home and with Ooma and Oompa, Elia trick-or-treated as the sweetest little ghost ever!
Christmas was absolutely wonderful (magical, even). And we shared some of our highlights HERE.
We have so many things to be thankful for, and 2012 although full of challenges, was also full of so many beautiful and rewarding moments. We sincerely hope that 2012 was all that you dreamed it would be and we can’t wait to experience all that 2013 has to offer.
