Hiya! 2012 has been a full year for world of whiskerbeans and for me. Here are some highlights:
January - Я and I surprised everyone with a little trip to the local courthouse. It is affectionately remembered as "B**** & B****** day". That is what our best friends called us on that day, on separate occasions. (asteriks for the kiddles) Tricksy (naughty) hobbits, we are.
February - Я and I went to Universal Studios for our honey(potter)moon.
March - We travelled to Morgantown to hang with our kstar and see the Avett Brothers perform at the Creative Arts Center. We probably ate some Wings 'Ole on the way. We also saw Jane's Addiction at the Louisville Palace with our friends Mike & Lori.
You know, my mom bought these sock monkey hats thinking they would not be worn. I guess 2012 was the year of the sock monkey(hat)?
April - Our reception. It was so good to see friends and family that we had not seen in awhile. The ones who were unable to make it in person, were there in spirit.
Our niece wanted a VIP pass so she and my friend Sandra's little girl had special VIP sock monkey hats, instead.
A day later with a couple of tickets in hand, a show and then a dark alley later, we were fortunate enough to meet Arlo Guthrie.
Also around this time was the jury process for the WV Pumpkin festival. I was totally surprised (and wondering what I was getting myself into) when the judges said "yes".
June - Radiohead at Riverbend in Ohio
June also included a wonderful surprise in the mail:
Yep, that's me…sewing at the beach house.
My first Cheerwine experience. Not a fan. Sorry, North Carolina.
My first Piggly Wiggly experience. Exciting :) (it's a grocery store - for anyone who is not aware)
October - The WV Pumpkin Festival. All of the work (sewing, sewing sewing & more sewing) was worth the experience. One person strolling through asked "what is so special about world of whiskerbeans"? I know that my stuffies bring smiles to people's faces (not to mention the onslaught of "cuteness squees"). That makes it special to me.
November - Thanksgiving. I was fortunate to be able to spend with my brother and my parents. B(rother) took me on my first geocache experience. Fun!!!
2012 wasn't always peaches and cream, but a good year all in all. Bring on 2013!
