Hello New Followers!

Hey all!... and a special hello to those of you who are newly following me.  Since I've recently gained a ton of new readers, I thought I'd kind of recap what I've been writing about on the blog.

Maybe some of you have already read the "About Me" tab here, but if not, here is a general overview of who I am.

I am a 24 year old ER nurse, wife and pit bull mom.  More on what it is like to be an ER nurse here.

I got married in August of 2012, so I guess you could say I'm a newlywed?  More about our wedding here.

This year, I developed a passion for running.  I did the "couch to marathon plan" (does that even exist?) in 11 months.  You can read more about my coughing and snotty marathon here.

George and I announced that we will be moving to Peoria.  We started construction of our brand new house in September.  So far, I've had a blast choosing the details of our new place.  More about our new house here.

I also used to be a pretty serious ballet dancer.  It was truly a passion and was almost a career.  I wrote my ballet story in three parts.  Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.

Chili Recipe Ingredients
While I'm not that fantastic of a cook, I have found and concocted some pretty awesome crock pot recipes if I do say so myself. Check out my FAVORITE "Crock Pot Fajitas" here and "The Best Chili... Ever" here.

Lastly, every month Kylie from Lipgloss and Lunges and I do a "Favorite Things" post for the month.  Check out what was on my list for December here.

If you are a blogger, we would LOVE for you to link up with us this month.  We will be posting the linkup on January 3rd, and it will be open all week.

That's all I have for now.  If you are new, welcome!  I hope you enjoy reading some of my ramblings.  If you aren't new, thank you so much!  Part of the fun of blogging is sharing ideas and stories.  Knowing that someone is actually reading and maybe even enjoying what you write makes it even better.  If you're a reader, new or old, I'd love for you to say hi!
