Bring it On 2012

2011 was never dull.

I had joy and disappointment.

There were so many happy moments and at the same time, it was a rough year.

NighLon said hello in 2011, and at just three months old, growing by leaps and bounds.

Remembering this, I am so ready for 2012 and all the things it will bring.

I sat down and came up with some goals for NighLon in 2012.

Highlights from Christmas & A Gift

Christmas 2011 was extremely exciting for me.

This was the first year that my son had any clue what was going on, so that was extremely exciting.

He is only 15 months old and received a guitar collection, and MEGA BLOCKS, of course!

My husband rocks and I got a new camera, computer, and other awesome gadget!

I want in Triberr & Another Gift for You!

I discovered something today.

It may just be the best thing  since Twitter!

source: Triberr

I had heard of triberr.com before, but really hadn’t given it much thought.

(enter the  gets distracted by shiny things side of me)

Earlier today, I was playing on Klout, and ended up on triberr.com.

I have no idea how I got there, just that a lot of clicks were involved!

I start looking into it, and I am totally dumbfounded. It seems absolutely amazing.

Basically, it is a community where bloggers support and encourage eachother.

 Triberr in their own words:

“Triberr is a blogging community that solves the number one problem that bloggers have. We do that by allowing small and medium size bloggers to come together and let them tap into each other’s audiences automagically.”

Amazing, right!

Why didn’t I think of this?

OH yeah, I’m distracted by shiny things.

Anyway. I try to sign up and guess what….

I have to have an invite code!

So to sum up this post:

If anyone has an invite for me, please feel free to share!

Here is a Christmas frame for you!

Just right click and save. If you enjoy or need help inserting the pictures, feel free to leave a comment.

I have skipped the blog of the day for a few days because I have something special lined up!

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

Rage Quit & Exploding Inbox

I’m sitting here tonight thinking “what to do, what to do?”

My husband however is laughing so hard he has tears rolling down his face.

Apparently, he is now obsessed with watching YouTube on xbox.

For 3 days now, he has been watching Rage Quit videos from Rooster Teeth, or something like that!

Yes, my husband is a geek- just an xbox geek!

Listening to him laugh is enough entertainment.

In fact, its a little too much entertainment… I cannot concentrate while he is laughing like that. It is too funny.

So instead of working tonight, It looks like I will be listening to the hubs laugh at Rage Quit videos….

AND EMPTYING MY INBOX!

Yes, My name is Cari and I have an exploding inbox!

I belong to several groups and have family all over the country, so this makes my inbox crazy!

Its Christmas, so that makes it insane!

I’m addicted to reading blogs, so that explodes it!

My goal by tomorrow is to have an empty inbox… I’m not sure how that is going to happen.

I promise to share my tips with you, as well as a  special gift for your support!

Until then, here is a giftie for you!

You can use it as a facebook picture, blog bling, blog post image, email signature, whatever you want.

Just please do not print, and please read my terms of use!

My New Adventure & Getting Organized

Organizing is not my thing lately, but we will get to that later!

First, I have some really exciting news.

Angie at Mystic Made made this beautiful pixel email signature for me!

Oh, how I love Christmas.

I adore these little works of art, so as a gift to myself I am going to learn how to do them.

I have joined a mentor site, set up a blog so showcase my lessons on, and I am so excited!

Lucky for you guys, there are gifts all around today.

Organize With Sandy has become one of my favorite blogs.

Like I said before, organizing has not been my thing lately.

Its hard to believe that I was at one time the most organized person I know.

The sad part is, I have no clue what happened.

On to Sandy. She is wonderful. She is talented. She is a geek. She is organized.

What could be better? When I read her blog, I often think…

“Oh yeah, she is genius… I want to be her when I finally grow up!”

Not only will you find ways of organizing; stories about being a mom and a wife; and definitely some motivation!

Hop on over to Organize With Sandy, Just let her know I sent you!

Merry Christmas

I ♥ Pink & Today’s Inspirations

Today, I have felt quite accomplished, so as a reward I decided that I would reward my self with

some much needed blog catch-up.

I went to some of my favorite blogs and it hit me… (when I saw a pink camera of course)

That I would search for hot pink stuff!

So, what I have come up with is my Christmas list to my FAIRY GODMOTHER!

Here it is

this Jeep

this kitchen

with this Kitchenaid Mixer

this closet

this sofa

this guitar

this office

OK, so now that I’m done drooling over hot pink things,

on to the

Today’s blog of the day is actually the blog that inspired this post!

A Quirky Girl’s Thoughts is my favorite place to go when I want to relax and drool over things.

She documents her life through instagram, holds giveaways for some really amazing products, and just shows some of the cutest things on her blog.

It really is a collection of thoughts from a quirky girl.

Jacque is a truly unique individual who I think has something for everyone.

If you need a smile, an idea, or just to relax, her blog is the perfect place to go!

Head on over to A Quirky Girl’s Thoughts, have some fun,

and don’t forget to let her know that I sent you!

Enjoy all the pinkness and Merry Christmas

At a London Train Station , a 33 foot Christmas Tree has been built.

Out of LEGOS!

It is probably the largest Lego Christmas Tree ever built, and took over 2 months to complete!

Talk about spreading the Christmas Cheer.

I do believe I am going to try my hand at making Christmas goodies out of  Legos!

Maybe a wreath, some ornaments, or a Christmas town.

Not all geeks have friends!

How can this be?

Its just not fair!

So, do your part and to here to pledge to make a difference.

Trashy Betty is one of my favorite blogs!

She blogs about her artwork, her kids, her life in general, and all things she loves, including other artists.

Her Etsy shop is absolutely amazing!

If I didn’t have a 1 year old running around, I would have everything she makes.

For now, I think I’ll just look at it, and order a skull headband or FTW mirror!

She even does hair and makeup for a Pinup photographer!

Talk about multi-talented!

Enjoy my finds and favorite blogs
