Hold my hand, I'm jumping in! Eeeep!

I feel like we all just stepped into a brand new building.
 Smell the fresh, stark white paint with me and think of the possibilites...  Eeep!  I'm nervous.  
It's the beginning. :)  

First things first, let's get aquainted.
Meet my people.
Technically, that's my people last Autumn, but I promise they're just as cute nearly a year later. Ryan is the husband and Scarlet is our 18 month old Beeble girl.  What's a beeble? Well, Scarlet is. The only other living Beeble on record might be Cee Lo Green.  They're a rare breed of bald-headed delight packaged in a huggable bundle.

What's simmering in the bloggy pot?

Sneak peek into my end of the year "Favorites Things Giveaway".
The "Ten Things You Don't Know About Me" tag with a bit of a twist.
Sharing the "GABI Domestics" challenges we're all doing here.
 Ryan will be a semi-regular guest blogger.  
picture or a blog post every day in 2013? What do you think about that?  Gimmie a yay or nay.
Crafty bits and pinnings, easy recipes and tutorials.
Flashbacks from the blog I wrote in 2008! 
------------------

If you're reading this then you're jumping in right at beginning with me.   Thank you! 
 At the moment, I just hear my own voice echoing in this big ole' blank space.  Speak up if you're here too!  Let's pour a cocktail and start putting some color on the walls. 

Are you wondering what the  "Picklebeanbooks" title is all about?  Picklebean is one of the nicknames that Scarlet seemed to be born with (you may have heard it in the vlogs now and then).  I have big plans in the works and my youtube vloggy name just didn't suit those big plans as well as I'd like.  So here we are.

I am considering dipping my toe in the blogosphere as well, so maybe I can gain some knowledge and tips from you as you go. Good Luck xo
