Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  This week has been busy and I'm not even working! The good news is that I had a 3rd and final job interview yesterday!  Now I'm just waiting to hear if I got it.  They said they will be making a decision in the next 2 weeks! Fingers crossed!

This week since I don't have anything new to share I decided to do a year in review type of post.  The yummy muffins above are actually a low cal recipe using cake mix and canned pumpkin.  You can find the recipe here: Pumpkin Muffins

I also ordered business cards for my blog this year!  Here is the link to those:  Business Cards

It was a good year for the flowers growing in my little garden! I can hardly wait for Spring now!

I rode my bike across the Golden Gate Bridge a couple times this year!  I've lived in the San Francisco Bay Area my whole life and this is the first time I've ever done this!  I have to thank my boyfriend, Dan, that I met last April for this fun experience! This has been a hard year for me, losing my mom and my job but one of the good things about this year has been meeting him!  

Okay, I planned to share more from 2011 but I'm now running late, I'm off to go visit my son today so I have to run....


If you are joining in on Show and Tell Friday, please remember that your Show and Tell needs to be something from your home or garden.  If you would like to join in, please enter your name and leave your exact Show and Tell blog post link, not just your blog link and as a common courtesy link back to my blog.

Thanks to all of you that join in every week!

I wish I lived somewhere I could ride a bike regularly. As soon as our acreage sales and we move, then get settled... I'm buying a bike. My eldest daughter lives in SF and rides everywhere. It is a beautiful area.

Keeping you in prayer for a job :)

Abbie said...

Hi Cindy!

Hope your Christmas was fab.u.lous and that your New Year's will be even better!

I linked up a passel of my fave posts from 2011, including an Anthro Headband knock-off, some super yummy Apple Butter frosting cupcakes, a DIY Tufted ottoman, and the simple fix my brilliant programmer hubby came up with to keep the GFC follower's box from disappearing like it has a tendency to do!

Thanks for hosting!

P.S. I'm your newest follower and would love for you to stop by for a visit!
