December has been a mostly great month. Christmas was good. We were supposed to go to my mom’s for Christmas, but unfortunately there was a death in my husband’s family, so we flew to BC instead, We haven’t been out there in 2 years, so the visit was nice, just wish it was under better circumstances.
Personally, I did buy a new car. A 2008 Ford Escape actually. I am loving it so far! Best feature? Heated leather seats. How did I survive without them?
Blogwise, I passed post #500 and follower #950. Both of which are utter craziness! But so much fun.
In December – 13 – Mostly redeemed during trip to BC. Otherwise it was much lower.
Year-to-date – 226 – Woohoo!
