30 Day Challenge- Day 9, 10, 11, and 12

Day 9
Something you're proud of in the past few days

I'm proud of my beautiful daughter and how wonderful she is at everything. She is so easy going and she makes me proud to be her mama.
I have made several felt and cloth hair bows and flowers! I am proud because I always look at things like that and think, “oh, that’s cute, I could make that”… but I never do. I did! I like them.

I am proud of myself for using my sewing machine more. It was a surprise wedding gift from my dear mother and I have been so grateful over the years that I have it.

I made this for Abs for her 1st birthday. It's supposed to be a little distressed and frayed... does it look okay? Well, I'm keeping it no matter what you people say.

Quite honestly, I can’t think of much that I’ve done over the last few days that I am proud of, but those are a few.
Day 10

Songs you listen to when you're bored, happy, sad, mad, hyped

This is a loaded question, because it brings to light the fact that I used to listen to music all the time- and I don’t really anymore. I loved finding new music and especially loved introducing someone to the music that I liked. This was also in the days of Napster and Limewire, where I could download whatever I wanted for free. I think there was always music coming out of my room all throughout college.

So that being said, right now I like to listen to the stuff I used to listen to back in the day. I love Dashboard Confessional, Counting Crows, I like The All-American Rejects, Radiohead, The Ataris, Muse and Yellowcard and Live, and a few others that if I said, I’m sure it would date me as an old almost 30 year old who is not even a little bit cool, so I’ll just stop there. You’ll catch me listening to any of those for any of the moods listed above. Abby and I sing in the car to the radio too. I am only a little ashamed to admit that I totally sing and dance to Justin Bieber and Katy Perry when they come on.

Day 11

Another picture of you and your friends

I should have included this picture the first time around, but I forgot I had it! This is my fabulous friend Amy, whom I’ve known since freshman year of college. She was dating my good friend Don, and while they didn’t end up together, Amy and I sure did. Thanks, Don, for insisting that the two of us should meet!

Day 12

How you found out about blogger and why you have one

I can’t remember how I found out about Blogger. I must have found out about it when a few friends or family members got a blog. I have one because I wanted to let our family members know what’s going on with us and the babe. Spencer and I were thinking of starting one for a long time, but we never got around to it. Part of the reason we never started it: Spencer wanted a sweet name. (Like our friends over at Ice Crizzle. Sweet name.) We couldn’t ever agree on one, so it never happened. When Abby came, I just went for it and named it the completely obvious “Bonnie and Spencer and Abby.” I am not going to pretend that I have interesting things to say, but whatev.


  1. YOU are so cute. And I feel special. :) And the other day when you talked about how you look at Abby sometimes and think, "That's MY daughter? I have a daughter?"...Yah, I do that ALL the time. And Caleb is huge now, and going into kindergarten in the fall, and I still am stunned once in a while when I realize he's MY kid. weird. :)

    love ya dear! And yes, thank you Don. :D

  2. Her birthday outfit looks great! I am so glad you are using your sawing machine, too. It's tricky sewing with little ones but it is so satisfying to create something. I love you, Bonnie!

  3. Wow, a shout out! Thanks! But good titles can be overrated; however, it does make you wonder how "War and Peace" would have been received had it been published under its original title "War, What is it Good For." Excellent taste in music, by the way (except for Bieber and Perry, but I guess that doesn't really need to be pointed out). :)

  4. You made some super cute things!!!

  5. I better benefit from your new hair bow skill!
