GFC Blog Hop



i'm so excited to be co-hosting the GFC blog hop over at the life of a not so ordinary wife!!!

now, let's spread the love! :) 


When I want to follow a blog the first thing I look for is GFC (Google Friend Connect), it's so easy and  nice to be able to go and see all of the blogs you follow in one spot. It's really a great tool to have. 
One side note- Did you know you can follow through GFC using your Twitter Account? TRUE, it's definitely an option!
Ok, so let's get to the party, shall we?
RULES are simple:
1. Follow your host via GFC
The First link below
2. Follow your co-hosts via GFC
The Next 8 links below
3. Link up below using your main blog url not a specific post.
4. Make sure to visit some of the blogs in the link up and follow them via GFC 
and if you want to leave them a comment, I'm sure they'd appreciate that as well.
5. Tweet about this blog hop
6. Share about this blog hop by grabbing a button and putting it on your sidebar!
*After 6 months of the waiting list to cohost being extra long, I finally have paid cohost spots available! Email me if you're interested at melissa@thelifeofanotsoordinarywife.com

Free, You Say?

yes, free!

there is a lot going on behind the scenes around here lately, enough to exhaust me to the point of neglecting my blog. (i'm sorry!) it's been hectic, because my photography business gave me only about a month's break and is starting to pick back up again, as well as throwing one of my besties a baby shower, delving into the world of silhouette cameo/SD pattern design, writing, heading back to the reproductive endocrinologist to try to make a younger sibling for mack, and spending time with my favorite 1 year old. (i'm getting tired just thinking about it all!)

i'm doing good to even post at all lately, so fitting in promotional posts for ads has been tough to do. the ray of sunshine from this cloud, however, is that, because of this, i've decided to offer up all ad space for free for a limited time (till things die down a bit).

of course, i'm open to having my sponsors guest post and host giveaways (email me, if you're interested), so i'm not a completely terrible host. ;)

how do you cash in on this? it's easy! just visit my sponsor page, select which size ad space you'd like (please make sure you submit the correct size, otherwise i'll have to reject the ad), and enter the code FREEBIE at checkout. easy peasy!

Mack Attack

"way behind" doesn't even begin to cover the state of my blog, but now that the holidays are over and my busy season for photography has ended (lasted well into december this year) i can finally get back to normal. :)

instead of doing separate 10 & 11 month posts for mack (even though he turned 1 on the 5th, which deserves a post of its own), i thought i'd share my fave pics and a few highlights from each month all in one post.

now, all about mack...

10 months:

  • took his first step the day he turned 10 months
  • decided shortly thereafter that walking is overrated & returned to power-crawling
  • enjoyed his first thanksgiving (did not enjoy trying new food. i think he inherited my picky palate)
  • got his first real cold (ran a low fever for a few days)







11 months:

  • played in snow for the first time
  • was successfully barred from the christmas tree
  • went through a fun stage of projectile vomiting every time we fed him something he didn't like
  • picked up a few new words (poop, stinky, daddy (instead of dada), wawa (for water), hi...)
  • not a fan of santa
  • was not at all interested in unwrapping presents christmas morning
  • luckily, santa is a fan of his and brought him some awesome new (much needed, as we RARELY buy any) toys








oh, how i love this little boy!
