Hello again

Looks like I abandoned this blog again. Hard to believe that it was February and there was a blizzard going on the last time I posted. Since that last post, I started a new job much closer to where I live (driving to Tysons Corner everyday made me insane), we've made some progress in wedding plans, changed our wedding date, and got our plans back on track after that. Still living at home for the time being, but Chris recently found a full-time job which means we can start apartment hunting in the near future. So that's the last 8+ months in a nutshell.

Now that I'm a bit more settled into post-college life a little better, I decided to try to revive this blog. I spend most of my lazy Sundays reading random blogs and that always inspires me to pick up this blog again. This time, I decided to actually act on it. I may revamp this blog and make it a bit easier to update/navigate, but for now, I will just take the first step of actually posting on a regular basis. To help with that, I am going to try the 30 Day Blog Journal challenge that I have found on several blogs. There are different variations and they have been done at different times but I figured this would at least give ms some kind of direction for an entry every day and get me into a habit of updating more often. I found this particular challenge by reading Happy Hour With a Housewife.

Here is the list of entries so you can keep track and participate if you'd like:

Day 1 - your favorite song
Day 2 - your favorite movie
Day 3 - your favorite television program
Day 4 - your favorite book
Day 5 - your favorite quote
Day 6 - 20 of my favorite things
Day 7 - a photo that makes you happy
Day 8 - a photo that makes you angry/sad
Day 9 - a photo you took
Day 10 - a photo taken over 10 years ago of you
Day 11 - a photo of you recently
Day 12 - something you are OCD about
Day 13 - a fictional book
Day 14 - a non-fictional book
Day 15 - your dream house
Day 16 - a song that makes you cry (or nearly)
Day 17 - an art piece (drawing, sculpture, painting, etc)
Day 18 - my wedding/future wedding/past wedding
Day 19 - a talent of yours
Day 20 - a hobby of yours
Day 21 - a recipe
Day 22 - a website
Day 23 - a youtube video
Day 24 - where I live
Day 25 - your day, in great detail
Day 26 - your week, in great detail
Day 27 - my worst habit
Day 28 - whats in my handbag/purse
Day 29 - hopes,dreams and plans for the next 365 days
Day 30 - a dream for the future

I can't say that I will post every single day, but I will try to make up those posts that I miss. I may also intersperse regular entries with the challenge entries but each topic will be a separate entry.

New month, new attempt at keeping up a blog!
