January - March Recap

I've never done a recap before so when I read about the 2011 Review Extravanganza I thought what a fun idea! Its always good to reflect on the past year anyway right?

So thats what I did. I went back to see what I did throught the year, first up is
January - March Recap, what did I do?

I sewed with Bias tape for the first time.

I joined the 21 days to getting organized challenge over at A bowl full of lemons.
It was great I organized under my kitchen sink, my dresser & drawers, the medicine cabinet (when was the last time you checked the expiration date on your meds?), under the bathroom sink, toy organization and my recipe books.

It was a lot of cleaning and organizing let me tell ya, but I needed it.
They were small enough projects that they were easy to tackle... now can someone else do another organizing challenge please? I need to start cleaning again.

My girlfriend put on a beautiful Sunflower Baby shower.
And its time for her daughters 1st bday so I just can't wait to see it all put together and share it with ya'll! She goes WAY over the top and doesnt miss a single detail!

I practiced a bit with my photography and learned about bokeh and macro.

My lil man celebrated his 2nd bday in February.
I reminised about being pregos and giving birth.
And I reflected on my son's first two years, boy do they grow so fast!

We had a little celebration for him at our home and had a great time.

Hawaii was hit with a tsunami warning on 3/11/11 after the horrible Japan earthquakes.
Thankfully we were not badly affected by it.

I shared my story about karma that till today when I read my own story, I still get goose bumps and tear a little.

And speaking getting teary and geting goose bumps....
I told you about the little gift I made for my friend Kai.
It was supposed to be uplifting and keep him positive.
Little did we know that times were only going to get tougher for him.
Few months into the year, they found a large tumor on the base of his brain.
Thank God for miracles, hes doing fine now.

Hmmm what a way to start the year! Thanks for keeping up with me... next week April - June Recap!

Yea! So glad you are recapping with us!
I think I need to take that organizational challenge. My husband sure would love it if I did. :)

Going to check out the bday post and the karma one now.
And so glad Kai is doing good now- that would be so scary!!

Oh and I recorded your first point :)

I should sign up for that organizational challenge too! Though I looked at the first thing, misc. drawer. That alone might take me several days!

I've also seen some very hard things happen to some amazing people lately. It certainly has changed my perspective. I'm so glad your friend Kai is doing well and hoping the other woman is too.

I love the decor for that baby shower. DId you help decorate it too? She did GREAT!

You need to teach me some stuff on photography. I really do love it and want to know more....someday.

Your little man is so stinking cute!!

Those tsunami's are scarier than tornados.

I'm sorry to read about your friend Kai. Poor thing. I'm glad he's doing fine now.

Thanks for linking up with us!
