Do Tell Tuesday Link-Up #4

It's the last day of 2013! Can you believe it?? Here's a chance to brag on yourself and all that you've accomplished this year. If you're a blogger, link up a few of your favorite posts from the past 12 months. If you're a reader without a blog, leave a comment at the bottom of this post and share about some of your accomplishments this year (bloggers, you can leave a comment too)! This is always a great time to reflect on all you've achieved in such a short amount of time. I'd love to hear all about it!

Here are just a few of my accomplishments this year:

  • I finished up language school and tested as "advanced low" in my fluency!
  • I've made some great connections/friendships with other bloggers from all around the world!
  • Through lots of extra work, playtime, Tot School, and repetitive talking, Little Man is quickly catching up in his speech. He finally started calling me "Mama" on Christmas day! (after months of calling both me and the Mr. "Dada") 
  • I did a complete redesign of my blog, all by myself! I think it's safe to say I now have a minor in HTML coding ;-)

Christmas Guessing Game by My Love For Words

This is such a cute game! I love how she included pictures for those little ones that can't read yet. I'm going to need to go ahead and print me out a copy of this game and pack it away for next Christmas so I don't forget!

Baked Hash Browns by Cats on the Homestead

This is a simple and healthy breakfast option that's perfect for baking in large quantities and freezing until you want to eat one (or two). I'm really loving this idea considering I'm not a morning person and I'm not much of a breakfast eater. That means I'm rarely in the mood to prepare anything for breakfast, unless it's something quick. This recipe seems to fit the bill!
