Getting to Know You with Old School Blogging

By November 13, 2013Diary

Way back in 2008, when memes were all the rage, this one went around and I didn’t see it!  What, oh I might have been to pregnant or nursing or out of the loop that week.  Now Elaine from The Miss Elaine-ous Life is bringing it back Old School Blogging Style and just like way back when, it’s all about getting to know you.  Or, in the case of this post, getting to know a little more about me.

I hope you will join in and tell us a little more about you.  Making new friends and learning more about old friends is one of the absolute BEST parts of blogging!

And don’t forget to tweet with us @elainea and @BrittanyVandy, hashtag #OSBlog!

Getting to know you,
Getting to know all about you.
Getting to like you,
Getting to hope you like me.

For starters, I love musicals.  Can you name the one above?  It’s a good one and the kiddos can watch it too!

Now on to the fun and games!
