I can't say why, but it's been really hard to find time to blog lately. Here is a quick recap of my holiday season!
1. I did an online "Tree Tour" by tweeting an ornament from my Christmas tree every day in December! It was fun and something different from my usual Holiday Home Tour that I share on my blog.
Here is the string I promised to post more about. It's not really and ornament, but I tie it on the tree each year to remind me of the blessing my family is to me. It's really a strip of name tags. It's basically a little ribbon printed with my name, over and over. My maternal grandmother would order spools of it, one for each grandchild. She would snip off a section and stitch it onto things she made us, or in clothes that were going to camp. When we cleaned out her house a few years back I found this one little piece of mine in her sewing box. I kept it! I'm either a hoarder or just really sentimental. The name tag can still be found all over my home, on all sorts of things Momma Thelma made for me. Here it is on a quilt I use at the foot of my bed.
Yes, My name used to be spelled Betsie - Mom changed it to Betsy when I started school. Everyone kept calling my Bessie - it annoyed her and she thought the spelling change might help.
2. I spent Christmas in Nederland with the Rents! Steffi, Tad and Beau joined for a few days. We played games, watched movies and did a little holiday baking.
4. I've started back to Jazzercise. It's exercise, so I hate it, but it is better than most other types of workouts I've tried in the past. I hope I can stick to it.
I can't believe January is almost over. I'm meeting up with the Dallas friends this weekend - very excited! I feel like I haven't seen them in FOREVER!
The annual summer road trip with Amy and Christa is already in the works! Savannah and Charleston - Here we come! I'm ready.
