100th Post!

Man I am just so proud of myself for so many different things today! I went swimming today, I am eating blueberries instead of peanut M&Ms, I've only been on the Gossip Girl website once since school has started, and today is my 100th post! Woo! I am so awesome!

Unfortunately, I don't have anything super exciting to blog about. It is kind of fun to see what has changed though since starting this blog. Obviously I am now a married woman and am loving being married to the COOLEST AND MOST WONDERFUL MAN EVER! Sorry all of you other ladies out there, I snagged the most awesome husband right before your eyes. Don't worry, I am sure there are others out there, but I am sure glad to be with this guy:

It is also fun to think about the future of my blog. This has been my first attempt at blogging, and I have to admit: I love it! I am totally addicted. I want to expand the range of my blog, and am trying to decide what areas I want to venture into. I admit that my favorite types of blogs to stalk and the ones that have been the most inspirational to me are personal style blogs. I don't know if I have enough personal style, and I wouldn't want my blog to only ever be outfit posts (esp. since my everyday looks aren't always that great!), but I think that Sydney over at The Daybook does a pretty good job balancing. I would need to have a better camera, and maybe in the meantime borrow someone's since mine is officially screwed up (hint hint Devynne...;) ). I think the 30 for 30 Challenge from Kendi Everyday could be a fun way to start, but I want some people to join me! If you are interested in taking the 30 for 30 challenge, let me know--you have until January 28th to sign up :) I tried to convince Owen to do it with me, but he said that "a) I don't want to think that much about getting dressed every morning and b) If I post about style, people will question me" Maybe next time...

Today I am oh-so-thankful for the super soft bathrobe that I bought Owen for Christmas and for the fact that he lets me borrow it all the time without saying anything.



  1. YES!! I have been thinking about the exact same things and I really want to do the challenge, but I'm nervous that I will give up, break down and buy something, etc. etc. But if we do it together it will help...Let's do it.

    Also, I'm so glad you liked the chicken. It's delicious!

  2. I totally think we should! I might have to go shopping maybe once before February 1st (hey it doesn't officially start until then, right?) and also we should see Burlesque at the dollar theater ;) sounds like a plan!!

  3. Blogging can be an interesting thing. I have unsucessfully blogged before (as in start but quit, have nothing to say) but now I'm trying to post more frequently as an exercise in just using my mind. Since graduating college I've been challenged in my work environment but my blog allows me to challenge myself to be a woman of substance and value and actually have something to say.

    Personal style blogs can be quite addicting! I look at quite a few daily and have been tempted to try my hand at it, but like you I seriously doubt I have "enough" personal style. Or any, haha!

    Good luck to you if you do the challenge!

  4. Thanks Julie! And personal style is all about being an individual, so I'm sure you could give it a try!
