100 posts later...

This is my 100th post! Are you as excited as I am?! I don't consider myself a "good" blogger, only an ok blogger. I guess my blog started out as a way for me to record things that I wouldn't be likely to remember later, but it's turned into a way for me to share interesting things with whoever stumbles over here. It's so hard for me to remember to write in my journal on a day to day basis, but for some reason I can blog every day, no problem.

Thanks to everyone who reads/has read my posts and I look forward to communicating even more splendid things!

My very first blog was this: http://kristimcmurry.blogspot.com/2009/01/things-i-selfishly-want.html
Things I selfishly want. Let's see how I've done in a year and a half!
  • Canon 5D Mark II - check! Just bought it a month ago FINALLY
  • Bed canopy- nope. Don't really want one anymore
  • Chandelier- sort of. I decided that I liked the one in my kitchen, so I got a cool paper lantern for my office instead.
  • Chairs for the kitchen table- check! two vintage chairs, and I love them!
  • Ostrich feathers- check! They adorn the island in my kitchen
  • Jonathan Adler piece- check! Got a tea set for Christmas :)
  • Paint for the guest bathroom- nope. :( Still need to do that.
  • Rug for the living room- nope. Gave that up. I like the hardwood now. 
  • Suzani for the coffee table- nope. I'd still like one. They are gorgeous
  • Chrome switch plates- I have 1...does that count?
  • Label maker- heck yeah! I use the crap out of that thing.
  • iPod Touch- yep! I traded with my boyfriend for it. 
  • 6 or 7 books to read- ummm yeah...and then some
  • Macbook- yes! Bought it last Christmas. And now I have one at work too. 
Ok this has really made me realize how UNBELIEVABLY blessed I am! I hope you all have been able to get some of the things on your wish list as well. Look for another "Things I'm wanting" post soon. I like going back and seeing what I've gotten over a year later!

For now, here are some photos from a recent shoot for Alongcomesmary on Etsy!
