All About You in 52, Week 44

Week 44, it’s like counting down to the end of the year. Halloween has passed and now we are coming up on Thanksgiving and honestly, I want to start decorating for Christmas!

Very Frightening Teens!

Another LIST! I love my lists, but we are going to start ending our All About You in 52 with the hard questions. If you are doing “catch up” let me know. If you are caught up, keep it up!! I can’t wait to see a picture of your books. I’ve pulled down my book(s) that I’m housing my All About You in 52 and will start loading it this week. After I had filled one album I started putting them in a scrapbook box for safekeeping!

When you go to the book store or places like Cracker Barrel to you remember seeing those little paperback books with titles like “1962,” “1974” or “1938.” I loved reading through 1959, my birthday year. I never purchased one. I don’t know why. So I decided this week to make my own page with information about 1959. Of course as a newborn I don’t remember many of these items, but some things stuck around long enough that I appreciate them.
