Pop The Bubbly

We maaaaaadddeee it.
Made it to what you may ask?
{Followers that is}
If you are shocked at this fact, know that you are in good company.
Back in February when I started this whole shin dig,
 I thought I would be lucky to have like 20 followers.
Make that 18.
Bribery--I've clearly mastered you ;)

One would think I would be like awesome and have a giveaway planned for this occasion.
But I don’t.
Instead, the husband and I are having a little celebration with cake and champagne.
It was the blog's idea {she can be such a lush sometimes..}
I think the blog picked up on my huge craving to pop a cork and send it flying.
I don’t care if you drink champagne or not, poppin’ corks has to be one of the best adrenaline rushes there is.
Please go try it immediately.

Anyhow- time for me to get into the whole part of the post that goes a little somethin' like
“You are awesome, thank you for supporting me and this little hobby of mine."
I mean that seriously.
I realize not all 500 click on this blog with every new post,
But for the 10 that actually get a hint of excitement in their bones to read what I have to say-
Thank you.
It is for you 10 that I continue to write.
{And because I really have nothing else to do with my time, but that’s beside the point.}
Your comments and emails continue to bless me daily.
I hope you receive the same amount of love that you put out
{Now I make you all sound like a bunch of floosies…}
But really, it has been such a joy getting to know some of you.
I never knew blogging created genuine friendships, but I am so {so} happy that it has.

The end.

PS. For all you newbies around these parts from the Followers Fest—I am dedicating a solid {ten} hours to visit all your blogs here shortly. You will be hearing from me, I promise.

PPS. This is totally irrelevant, but this morning I put on the same pair of jeans that I wore last night {because that’s what I do} and I couldn’t freakin’ button them today. Really?! I thought jeans were supposed to stretch out after you wear them, not shrink. Apparently lasagna and wine do go straight to the hips. I think this is my body’s way of telling me I need to stick strictly to leggings from here on out. Leggings, get ready for some cake & champagne. I have full trust that you can handle it--Don’t prove me wrong.

K I am off now—
time to devise a plan to make that number over on my sidebar say 1,000 ;)
After celebrating of course.
Life is all about priorities kids.
Don’t you forget it.

Happy Weekend Loves!

{In case you are wondering--that would be a bird's eye view of me in my apron.
Not just a shot of my lady lumps as it may appear.}



  1. I'm right there with you on the leggings - if I don't have to go out in public, they are my go-to piece of clothing! Congrats on reaching 500!

  2. Leggings are one of my favorite inventions ever. Those and jeggings. And the dress pant jegging type things I found last year, so that even when I go to work, the fun can continue. ;)

    Congratulations on 500 followers! And your apron is cute. :)



  3. Leggings are my favorite. I was so against the new hip look of leggings, then I got pregnant and I wore them almost every day of my pregnancy, now I am such a believer. I wear them on a weekly basis. Legging Love.

    Also, yay for 500 followers and even yay-er (yeah, it's a word, I invented it) for cookies for meeee!!!!!!!

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
