2012 || A Year In Review


I know a lot of you are new here.
I know a lot of you probably wonder what the heck do these people blog about.
I know a lot of you are probably like "These people are so silly, what posts should I read?! There are way too many good ones!"

Whether you thought one of the previous statements above or are D. None of the above or E. All of the Above we thought we would help you out. Here are our top posts from 2012 first in a list and then one from each month. Enjoy.

January: This is the month where I decided to start blogging. That is right it has almost been a WHOLE year. And at first Deidre was going solo. A lot of posts with no substance. Whatsoever. Just jokes. But my post on Virtue definitely started me into a good year. To prepare me for Miss Idaho, for assemblies, for marriage, and to be an example.

February: In February baseball season started. Which meant Adam was gone a ton. So I went to Idaho a few times to do assemblies for my Miss Idaho platform S.T.A.M.P. Out Bullying.

March: A lot more of baseball and pageanty. A trip to Portland to see my brother and go to some of Adam's games. Miss Idaho orientation and the Miss Idaho Outstanding Teen pageant. And of course, the ever popular Mustache March and March Madness.

April: A few more baseball games. A few more trips to Idaho to prepare for the pageant. And a change to win the lottery.... pretty much sums up April.

May: There was a lot going on this month. Lots of Miss Idaho preparations form walking to talent to raising money. ENGAGED [you can find the link below]! I got engaged. And that was the best moment of this month. And from here until wedding month. My time is pretty spent in wedding mode, pageantry, and work.

June: Miss Idaho and wedding planning. We also took our engagements and ordered out invitations.

July: I crowned the new Miss Magic Valley, had a bridal shower, and MORE wedding planning.

August: Marriage. Honeymoon. Nothing can top that. Moved into our first apartment.

September: Lots of football games. Which meant opportunities to eat cougar tails.

October: A very special birthday and birthday redo from my handsome husband. Halloween. Which means costumes.

November: Laid off from work. Found a new job. And Thanksgiving in Idaho!

December: A trip to California to spend our very first Christmas together. But not before opening some gifts here!

And then a few more for good measure!

The Obvious:
Our blog really picked up a ton as we were planning our wedding and getting married. So it didn't suprise us that some of our most popular 2012 posts had to do with just that. Marriage. Also... we wrote mostly about marriage and love and all that for a solid 4-5 months... so that made it obvious.

The Not-So-Obvious:
This gems made it through all the marriage and love posts into the eyes of many viewers. They are the Aladins of the group... aka. The diamonds in the rough. Or... the rough in the diamonds, whatever way you want to look at it.
