Old School Blogging

I have a confession: I sometimes like participating in blogging memes.

I saw two in my Facebook feed this morning and then a third this afternoon.  I might be in meme overload by the time I’m done but what the heck.  Memes remind me when I first started blogging; a time when I was trying to figure out my niche and wondered who the hell was even going to read my blog.  Old school.

Which brings me to The Miss Elaine-ous Life.  She hosts a monthly meme called Old School Blogging and for June we’re supposed to follow the alphabet in this meme.  Just for fun.

  1. I rarely find another beet lover. And your husband is a hottie, by the way. And so are you.

  2. I didn’t realize we both had girls entering K next year! AND I have 2 brothers and sisters. I’m loving summer because I get to catch up on blogs and yours is a mixture of everything I love. Keep up the good work!

  3. 🙂 I used to see these sorts of things all over facebook. (Not quite old school blogging, but old school facebook – if that can be considered a real thing!)They’re very good fun! And congratulations to you little lady for her upcoming graduation.

  4. I too was married in July and I am the queen of procrastination.

  5. Aw, what a sweet girl!
    I love a good trashy tabloid – but not too trashy, just Us Weekly trashy.
    Yay for procrastination from a fellow procrastinator! (Not really yay. I hate that I can’t stop it.)
    I’ve never tried a beet.

  6. I think you are the second person that has said beets. I think I need to cook some beets and see what is so awesome about them.

  7. I’m with you on the pedicures & a magazine. It has the perfect way to spend a Saturday… really any day will do!

  8. Awww from another Pisces, good to ‘met’ you here through this meme 😀
    Your girl is so cute!
