28 Things That Happened

Good Morning Gang!

As you are reading this, I am somewhere on the east coast driving down 95 with the peanut butter to my jelly. Funny story, Mary LOVES peanut butter and often says she will not have it around because she will eat the whole jar. Well I am that way with jam or jelly. I can’t eat just one tablespoon, I eat it straight out of the jar and before I know it… whoops! Ask G-Mama, I was the kid that ate jelly sandwiches, no PB for me. So yes, Mary’s the peanut butter and I am the jelly.  MEANT TO BE!

Anyway, since tomorrow is my birthday, I’m looking back at the things I did this past year, my 28th year on this planet. Big and small here they are:

1. FitBloggin’13

2. The beginning of Terrible Tuesdays. I started this catchphrase at work for the other surgical PA’s. Tuesdays weren’t always bad at work, this was a thing that just started this past July. And it hasn’t gotten easier with time that’s for sure!

3. My new blog design debuted! I seriously have a hard time imagining it before.. yikes!

4. I saw JT and Jay Z in concert!

5. Phoebe turned 1 and we had a party. Wow my baby is almost 2 years old.

6. I lost my mind and decided to give Bikram Yoga a shot… yeah I did it once.

13. I made YouTube videos… RIP! I hope to come back to those one day, I only made 3. They take up so much time since I am a one man show, and let’s face it, you guys know I don’t have that kind of time.
