5 year Blogiversary

Today is The Rantings of a Drama Queen's Mum's 5 year blogiversary. I can't believe it's been that long. I was looking back at old posts. It was 2008 & we had only been living in New Hampshire for 3 months & Tara was only 7 months old. A lot has changed since then. I really love blogging & plan to do it for a very long time. Even if I don't get many comments or get to 1000 followers, it just makes me happy writing a post. I feel creative & like I get some things off my chest at times. Thank you to everyone that checks out my blog. I appreciate you all.

Our new photo wall

Lately, I've been decorating/organizing more. We got these photo frames for Christmas (they came as a set). I finally printed photos & put them in the frames, in our bedroom. Anthony had already hung the frames. Too bad the ugly vent shows. I think they look pretty good. A lot of our old photos are on a hard drive & we don't know where the chord is right now. So I printed some that I had on the computer. I'll probably change it up a bit. I kind of would like older pics on the top & newer pics on the bottom.

1 of my goals has always been to go to every state in the US. I've been to about 25 states. Now that I'm a sahm I don't get to travel as much. We usually go away every Summer, but most of the time it's just around New England. The states I've been to are Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, Michigan, Tennesee, California, Arizona, Nevada, Hawaii, Arkansas, Louisiana & Mississippi. I've been to the airports in St. Louis, Denver, Houston & Dallas, but those don't really count. 1 of the main US states I've always wanted to go to is Texas. I'm not sure what it is, but it seems like a really fun state. I love the South.
