2013: A Look Back

Looking Back at 2013

I can't believe it's already 2014!!  I know we say it every year, but time flies! Here's the best of our 2013.

Last year I started off by continuing my plant based diet.  I've since deviated from that and it's been hit or miss most of the year.  Trying to get back and on track next week with something new.

I joined Pinterest...and actually started pinning. :) 

I tried my first green smoothie.  Next week I'll be trying some juice recipes that I'll share.

We started our annual spring garden.  Things were growing nicely, and since the weather stayed cooler longer, we were able to harvest more than usual.

I got highlights for the first time ever.  I need to do this again...badly!


Some bluebirds moved in.

Funny Bunny turned 10! Akk!!  She also had her first sleepover.

We got our first caterpillars!  And then we got more caterpillars.


I was able to go to the FPEA Homeschool Convention in Orlando and met Dwane Thomas with Visual Latin and Andrew Pudewa with IEW.  Very exciting!!

Hubby and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary!  We went to IKEA!

We switched churches and I really think it was the right decision.  Funny Bunny is now involved with Choir and Preteen Group on Wednesday nights and Sunday School and Praise Team on Sunday mornings.  She is staying very busy and I've been volunteering with the 4th grade preteen girls on Wednesday nights.  We've met a lot of great families!

Funny Bunny attended her very first day camp, which was a week-long dance camp.  She loved it!

She also started 5th grade which is really crazy to me!!  We decided to continue to use Heart of Dakota this year.

I continued to work as an Independent Consultant for Thirty-One Gifts and am still enjoying it.

We took a wonderful trip to North Carolina to visit family in October.  It ranks as one of our best vacations and we are ready to go back!

Funny Bunny attended a dance convention in Daytona.  Not the most fun weekend getaway for the adults, but I know the girls had a great time!  Below she is doing a toe stand.


And of course I had the pleasure of reviewing a ton of products!!  I'll be reviewing once again this year for the Schoolhouse Review Crew and am ready to get started!  Before that though, I'll be posting my favorite product reviews of 2013, so stay tuned!

Happy New Year, Christine! So glad you had a great 2013. Love the highlights and cut. I may have to steal your pic to take to my stylist. She just can't get it right.

Happy New Year to you too! Thanks about the haircut. I need to go back pretty badly. Things are out of control. ;)
