A Year in Facebook Statuses...

Facebook has been a great thing. Not only has it reconnected me with old high school friends and college friends and sorority sisters, but it has also given us a fun and unique way to recap the year through simple sentences or "statuses" as they've become known.

I don't update my status everyday, but I do make an effort to update it maybe 3-4 times per week, sometimes more. Anyway, I found a way to get all my statuses for the year. So, this is literally A Year in Facebook Statuses!

~is about to play Bakugan – not sure if I am smart enough to figure this game out…
~is about to put up all the Christmas decorations...ugh!

~is on the couch with my boys, a cup of hot chocolate and a warm blanket watching Christmas movies (the boys get to choose)!
~is signing Brent up for facebook...
~is trying to explain to Brent how to use Facebook...he says it's "alright." I don't think he'll be as addicted as I am!
~is scheming up a plan to get Brent on board with redecorating our bedroom! He! He!

~loves having a winter season. Snow, if you're listening...please come visit us!

~Fish, fish, fish and more fish...that's what for dinner. Oh, and shrimp!
