One Year Already

Guess what today is? Yup, it's my one year blogiversary!! I can't believe it's one year already. It seems like just yesterday that I discovered my first blog. I googled something about monograms. I can't remember what now but I think I was actually looking for an embroidery sewing machine maybe to do monograms (which I still have yet to decide on and purchase by the way)? I don't know. But what I do remember clearly is seeing in the list of possible websites was a website titled Monogram Momma. I clicked and it took me to all these great crafts. I was in love. What was this? Was she a professional crafter (is there such a thing?)? I had no earthly idea what I was looking at but I knew it was super fun. At the time she had a list of her favorite blog reads along the side and I found Grosgrain Garage second. Remember I was still looking for monogram information so I thought that perhaps she was a site selling grosgrain ribbon. Nope. Instead she was the super duper fun gal talking about her super duper fun life. Again I was hooked. My obsession with reading up on these girls, as well as some other fab cuties like Mel and Libby and Chloe and many more, was starting to grow. It took me a few visits to figure out what these blogs were....well...they were blogs. But I had never ever before been to a blog or even discussed a blog. That seems crazy to me now. But it's totally true. After lurking for a few months I decided to join in on the bloggy fun. I would like to say that at first I had nothing to say but really, I still have seemingly nothing to say. But I guess that's part of what makes this so much fun. We can sit and ramble on and on as much as our little heart's desire on our own blogs about a whole lot of nada and then let our blog friends decide if they want to read it that day. No hurt feelings if they don't want to read. And the welcome mat is out if they do want to read.

I have been able to make and give some really fun gifts (Pay-It-Forword and Earth Day gals I PROMISE that they are going in the mail either this afternoon or tomorrow at the latest!!) and have received even more amazing gifts. I have given a few bits of advice and some shopping tips and have received ten times that from y'all. About a month or two after I started blogging myself I finally confessed to my bestie. And like the good bestie that she is, she totally started her own blog too. Just like us, our blogs are similar yet totally different. One year later and a large number of my "real life" friends know about my blog. Several found it on their own (due to my total lack of creativeness when naming my blog one year ago) and a few I told. Either way, it's great to have a connection with my bloggy pals and my in-person-pals at the same time.

Cheers to many more years of bloggy friendship and fun!!

To celebrate this morning, I made myself a little breakfast shake (OK, I actually made this before I remembered that it was my blogiversary but whatever...). Bestie won't want this but the rest of you non-banana-fearing blog pals might.

1 cup yogurt (I like fat free vanilla but use whatever you love best)
1 banana
2 tablespoons peanut butter

Blend until smooth. Enjoy!
