50th Post!!!

Just a little over a year ago, this blog was started. And this is the 50th post! Mostly as a way to update family on all things Richmeier, but it's also a fun way of writing about whatever I fancy. I plan on finding more time for this blog and maybe doing one of those fun giveaways my other blogging friends do. So, to celebrate my 50th post I figured I would like 50 random things that have happened since this blog started, they're in no particular order by the way. Here we go:

  8. She opened her own salon! (http://www.freshss.com/) Kelsie rocks!
  9. I dyed my hair black, it's no longer black. And not because I didn't like it, it just didn't work well while pregnant.
