Hi, I'm Yvonne :)

Michelle over at A Little Bit of This and That started a lovely little linky party, and I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to share a little about myself and my blog! I love "meeting" new bloggers, and this seems like a great way to do that!! It also gives me the chance to learn more about the new blogger friends I already have!

I started this little blog of mine as an outlet for my ramblings... I talk WAY too much. ;) Now I just type it all out and only those people who wanna read about it have to. Plus, I know I will look back on this one day and appreciate all the memories, pictures, and stories I've documented in the world of Blogger.

Makin Martinez Memories

I wrote my very first post for Makin' Martinez Memories in November 2010 (wow, my blog is still such a baby!!!). You can tell I didn't quite have all the blogging etiquette together... no pictures, long-winded rant about my inability to find a full-time teaching job, etc.

It's funny that I read that particular post today... today I had TWO teaching interviews that I felt went really well. It's so nice to be able to look back and see how far you've come... blogging is a great way for me to do that!

I always find it difficult to categorize my blog. I share recipes, but it's not all about food. I talk about fitness, but it's not all about diet and exercise. I LOVE sharing the shopping bargains that I find, but this is definitely not a fashion blog!! I guess I like to say this is a "lifestyle" blog. I share everything from daily happenings and pictures, to my struggles with health and weight loss, and I share lots about my amazing husband and pups.

Some of my favorite posts:

I am also currently working on compiling a "30 before 30" list to post on here... I am 27 and there are so many things I want to do before 30! I have seen so many bloggers track those goals on their blog, and I am thinking I need to jump on board with this one! 

Thanks so much for checking me out and I hope you stick around for more!
Please leave me a comment if you stop by so I can return the love!!



Love learning more about you! Would love to see your 'before 30' goals! :)
