Well, it's the end of another year and time to reflect on the goings-on of this old blog here. 2013 was a kinder, gentler year than it's predecessor. The drama in my life settled down, and the haters moved on to bigger and better train wrecks. Can't say that I miss them...OK, maybe a teeny, tiny bit...but only because it's a lot harder to draft interesting posts without all the drama and negativity. For the most part, though, I've been enjoying my life of settled blogger solitude. The blog and I are like a happily married couple now - the initial excitement of our relationship has worn off and we no longer feel the need to "post" every day.

Let's take a look back at some of the highlights and lessons learned in 2013...

There you have it. 2013 in a nutshell or, more accurately, a nutcase. 2014 here we come (once a week if you're lucky)!



  1. I love your blog! Happy New Year, Bonnie!

  2. Just Tired of NonsenseJanuary 1, 2014 at 4:41 PM

    I love and enjoy your blog as well! Happy New Year!

  3. I love your blog too! The pictures are always fabulous and inspire me to put together new outfits all the time. Plus, its really nice to know that not everyone out there is perfect and has their shit together 100% of the time. Most of the blogs I've seen are just people showing you only the surface crap so your blog is quite refreshing! Keep posting :)

  4. Whatever works, I guess. Happy New Year to you and hopefully you'll continue to blog.

  5. "Krabs" with a "K". Eugene H. Krabs. See why you need a stalker like me?

  6. Thanks Catherine! So glad I met you through it! :-) Hope your year is great!

  7. Damn! That's right. Can't believe I missed that! You're pretty handy to have around.

  8. Happy New Year! Thanks for reading!

  9. Thanks, Katie! It's good to read that positive feedback. Always love to hear from you!
