Editor’s Note: To give 2009 a proper send-off we asked a few blogging friends to recap their year. Today, Heather Flett of RookieMoms.com (@rookiemoms) gives us the low down on her year and shares a few of her favorites.
Here are a few favorites that I must share:
Fashion & Beauty Finds: indi denim. They make jeans custom for your body!
Tech & Gadgets: my iPhone. Heard of it?
Favorites that embarrass me and horrify my family: cheesy romantic comedies, my Keen shoes, and letting my hair air dry (only my mom hates that one!)
Favorites from 2009:
TV Show: Modern Family, guilty pleasure sitcom that makes me laugh sometimes just thinking about it.
Movie: Loved (500) Days of Summer
Book: Currently can’t put down Po Bronson’s Nurtureshock.
iPhone App: Flixter, movie theater app. Does exactly what I want it to.
YouTube Video: The flash mob of the Sound of Music at that train station in Belgium.
Eye Candy: Now I’m feeling old. Can I still say Brad Pitt?
This year in social networking…
Favorite Facebook status update (your own): Need a last second puppy costume for a 2YO. Any options? Otherwise, he’s going to be a skeleton wizard. (my favorite because my community came through with a puppy costume within 11 minutes)
