Happy Birthday Blog!

Today is my blog's first birthday and also the 30th picture in my project 365.

Kind of on Photoshop acid for this one...sorry.

It’s been a rough 12 months, full of love, neglect, frustration and creativity.  I’ve been trying to think of a way to celebrate my 1st year in the blogosphere and haven’t come up with much.  I’m anxious to get something posted so that I can bury my previous post.  I don’t want to delete it because it’s a record of how I was feeling at a certain moment, but I realize now that my words last night can be easily misinterpreted.
Anyway, I decided to post 12 things I’ve learned over the past year.

1. It doesn’t matter how frequently I vacuum, my bedroom floor will always be covered in Bella hair.
2. The gym is never fun.
-Especially after a 4 month hiatus.
-Especially when they remodel while you’re away and you come back and feel like you’re in the twilight zone.
-Especially when Perfectly Petite Patty is using the Stairmaster Free runner death trap next to you and completes 45 minutes without breaking a sweat.
3. Retail therapy is usually the best option. 
-Especially when purses are involved.
-Especially when you’re having a skinny day.
4. Binge eating is usually the second best.
-Especially when boys are involved.
-Especially when you realize that dieting is for pansies.
5. Candles and wine have the magical power to make life instantaneously better.
6. So do stuffed animals, especially when you need something to cry into.
7. Change usually happens when you least expect or desire it.
8. But everything happens for a reason.
9. Most boys are as bad as they seem, but the good ones are worth the fight.
10. What you did in high school doesn’t matter any more.
11. Not everything works out the way you planned.
-Super glue never sticks where you want it.
-Plans to eat healthy are often thrown out the window at the first sign of chocolate cake.

12. Going to class and getting straight A’s becomes tremendously more difficult when your teacher is a hateful, bitter communist.
BONUS: Nothing in life is perfect.


  1. Happy Birthday to your blog. Love. It. I am also loving your 365. I may have to do it. It's so fun to see yours.

  2. Hello Amy, happy Blog-aversary!
    A very nice list! Yep, yep, stuffed animals do have the magical power to make life better. :)
