Hi everybody! We're back! *shoots off giant confetti gun*
A New Posting Schedule:
We'll be TRYING to post every Monday (and occasional Saturdays if we have over flow!) and while the first and last posts of the month will be dual narrated, we'll be alternating between Lia and I for the middle, so you should get at least one post by each of us (instead of Lia posting everything and me going missing.)
A New Monthly Theme!
Last year, we tried to have a religious theme for each month (Sacred Heart, Holy Souls, Etc) but this year we're going to shake things up and have a Marian theme for each month. We'll either pick a Marian title after a major feast day that month, something going on that month (Ex. Mother's Day) or a lesser known feast happening that month. This months theme will be Our Lady of Lourdes, since that feast day is on the 11th.
To actually get my posts up on time
To go somewhere new
To do something spontaneous every once and a while
To update posts in a timely matter so that Kat doesn't put words in my mouth
To not get so annoyed with Kat
To not wack Kat upside the head with something heavy (too late-L)
Hi, its actually Lia now. This might be actual goals of mine now. She knows what she did.
Have a monthly posting schedule that I actually follow.
What our stats are right now!
15 followers! WOW!
Over 8k page views! 10k is creeping up on us pretty quick! (I wonder what we should do to celebrate?)
So far, the U.S. is where most of our pageviews come from, but Russia is a close second. :D
Trying to whine about how little you got done and people are impressed instead. No. No that's not what I meant. Hear me whine!
And its not like you feel great about it because people are amazed. You just feel disappointed in yourself because you didn't meet all your goals and now you can't even whine about it.
Accidentally making a loud noise....in the middle of the night.....when all your family is asleep.
Making instant potatoes or a box cake for dinner because people are
over and they compliment you on the delicious potatoes or the lovely
Getting chicken pox after 17 years of avoiding it
Walking back into a room when you've been gone for five minutes and
hearing the four year old say "You know how things sometimes fall all by
themselves?" (It was my phone. -K)
When a cute boy and you get up from the communion rail at the same
time and you do that awkward 'who goes first' dance. *face palm*
Never finishing your awkward and awesome post so it is filled with things that happened months ago.
Snorting a little too loudly as you laugh at your now really, REALLY old Awkward and Awesome post
Making instant potatoes because people are over for dinner and you don't have time to peel a entire bag of potatoes. And you just hope nobody will notice... And then they compliment you on them.
And I just sat there like...I feel very smug and also slightly evil.
I have also made box cakes for parties AT OUR OWN HOUSE because I was lazy/procrastinated/was busy getting other stuff ready and then that cake was the first thing that was eaten and the thing that everyone came back for seconds for.
Granted, I have a secret when making box cakes to make them extra yummy and moist but I can't share it. Tis a secret it tis!
[No, it's not. I was out of vegetable oil, so I used melted coconut oil with my chocolate box cake and it ended up moist with just a hint of coconut. Enough that people could recognized SOMETHING was there, but not enough for the coconut haters to find it.]
Clean hair on a windy day. (When you're facing INTO the wind)
When your in a great mood and dancing around your room like a crazy to whatever is on the radio
Doing things with your friends
A good game of truth or dare. Let the shame and secrets flow
Suddenly it's 2018 This year has just passed by so quickly. I don't even know where to start. Our little blog has 13 followers now! Thank you guys for sticking with us. I know we have been posting much lately but with school and generally growing up things, its hard to find time to sit down and write a post. I certainly am going to post more this coming year. :D :D Kat and I have exciting things happening this year. This year, we are directing our church's Epiphany play. Which is a little terrifying!!! WE'RE GRADUATING THIS YEAR!!!!! Who decided it would be a good idea to release us on the world???? (jk jk jk) Then this fall, Kat will be headed off to college and me....... I have no idea. It has caused me many a gray hair just thinking about it. My hair is practically white!!!!!!!! (I kid, I kid) Still brown :) Have a Happy New Year!!!!!!!!! Lia
Remember when staying up until Midnight used to be a big thing? Wow.
Things That Happened This Year:
Catholic Girl Stuff turned 1!
We have 8k Pageviews... WOW
We both totally forgot to post on this blog.
Lia turned 18! YIKES
I applied for different colleges (I feel so old...)
We reached our 100th post...and then some
Drank WAAAAY to much coffee
Spent time with friends (though not nearly enough)
And since Lia started, that means I finish. Which means I have to break the not so happy news... Catholic Girl Stuff will be on hiatus for the month of January. (Don't worry, Lia will probably still be posting over at Musical Writings....We all know she's your favorite anyways)
