My 2012 Recap

Now that 2013 is here,  I wanted to take a look back on 2012.  It was an amazing year! So much happened. I definitely learned a lot about myself this past year. And it went by so fast!

We had a lot of family fun this year:

Camping at Hatcreek – This is a special place for our family and I Love that I can share this wonderful place with my boys. I’m also very grateful that they got to spend time with their great grandpa who has had such a big influence on the person I am today.

Fishing Trip to Eagle Lake – so proud of the boys for waking up at 3:30 in the morning for three days straight and toughed out 5-6 hours of fishing.  Seppe wound up being the one to catch not one but 2, fish.

San Francisco Zoo with our close friends the McCauley’s – the boys had so much fun. It was everyone’s first time to the SF zoo.

Great America w/ season passes – we enjoyed having the McCauley’s join us and we went back many times until the season ended.

We had a scary moment in March when Ben wound up in the hospital. He came close to dying but we were so fortunate that the doctors were able save him. It really helped put things in perspective for me and made me appreciate just how precious life is.

Created this outfit on the Polyvore website for the JustFabulous Style Showdown featuring the Eliza Shoe. I wanted something casual, pretty, and a little edgy.  I love the girly Celia Pussy Bow Blouse mixed with the Dynamite: Biker Jacket. Black/Grey Ruche Knee Skinny Jeans help to make it more casual.  The shoes have a strappy design that give this a sexy look. I wanted to keep the accessories simple. The Moon Rising Bracelet helps to add a feminine touch. The Equinox Bag – also from JustFabulous – goes along with the sophistication of the blouse. I also wanted to add a pop of color with Yves Saint Laurent ‘Rouge Pur Couture’. I would keep the eyes simple and make a statement with the lips.

This is a really fun website to create outfits. Check them out: http://www.polyvore.com (Yes, you do have to register, but it’s free! and you can link to your Facebook, twitter, and blog.)

It provides links to where you can purchase the exact items you use to design your outfits. Some items are a bit pricey, but you can still create the outfits to get ideas, then shop around to find affordable versions. The bags and shoes from JustFabulous.com are affordable so check them out.  I’ll definitely be creating more outfits. Happy Designing.
