Happy Blog Birthday to Me!

I can hardly believe that I've been blogging for one year as of today. That means Ada is approaching her 1st birthday as well. I'm not sure which makes me feel older: having an almost one year old, or having a crafting blog that's a year old. Just to throw some stats at you: I've had 131 posts and about 93,000 page views. Not too shabby! I want to thank everybody who reads my blog, you're awesome!!!

I know a lot of people do fun things for their blog b-day's, but I'm not sure what those things are, so I'm going to do some best of, worst of, because those are always fun!

Best Fat Quarter Friday

Worst Fat Quarter Friday 
 Dog Bandana (It was too easy to be a FQF: Cut a triangle, tie it around your dog's neck, done...)

Best Recipe
Chocolate Chip Cookies (They might just be better than you know what)

Worst Recipe
Lemon Bars (ugh, these were disgusting)

Best Other Tutorial
 Bubble Quilt It's so squishy!

Worst Other Tutorial
Jean Quilt Yes, I'll admit it, I'm prejudice against denim projects.

Best Thrift
I LOVE this necklace I got at an antique mall for $1!

Worst Thrift 
This little shopping cart was only $1, but when we got it home we saw that it was really broken on the bottom, I'm not sure it's usable even after I attack it with glue and duct tape.

Best Picture of Ada 
Awesome outfit and "artistic" photography

Worst Picture of Ada
She's sporting some unfortunate baby acne and her accessories don't match her outfit, sorry baby!

Best Picture of Me
This outfit is one of my favorite (Skirt: Banana Republic Outlet, Tank: Old Navy $4, Earrings: Thrift store: $0.50, Sandals: target $15)
Worst Picture of Me
I look lumpy and my hair's all weird, it looks like an unflattering wig...

And here are some other random best of worst of for this blog year.

Best book my SciFi/Fantasy book club read: Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson

Worst book my SciFi/Fantasy book club read: Dragon's Egg by Robert Forward (too sciencey for my taste, plus, there weren't any dragons in it, lame!)

Best TV show: Game of Thrones Best. Show. Ever! (note: there's a lot of sex and nudity, so beware!)

Worst TV show: Yo Gabba Gabba (Sorry little G) Those songs get stuck in my head and make me want to explode, and dance! My name is Skyler and I like to dance!

Best thing I did this year: Have a baby! (And lose all my baby weight and then some!)

Worst thing I did this year: Agree to pet sit our friend's ferret for a month. If someone asks you to watch their ferret, SAY NO!!!

I'm looking forward to another great year! Thanks so much for reading!!!
