January 2013 Bloggy Recap (in which late is better than never, right?)

Do you know those items that you jot down on your to-do list that end up just languishing there indefinitely? You can never really finish your list because you always intend to get to that one nagging item, but somehow other things just always seem more important.

Well. On my list has been “monthly blogging recaps.” I love it when bloggers give an overview of the past month’s posts. If this isn’t your cup of tea, I give you full permission to sit this one out, because really, it is just regurgitated content. I know. But come back on Wednesday, when there mayyyy be a room makeover reveal post coming. If you’ve been following along you know the one.

Or, take a moment to frolic down memory lane with me. It’ll be a good time.

So as you can see, January was a busy month! Just wait until I get to February’s recap…in like June. In theory, I would eventually categorize all of the blog this way, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. One month at a time, please.

Now, do tell. What were you up to back in the day in January? Luckily I have a blog record of some of my activities or these memories would never be recalled…
