i have stated several times on here that i am not worried about gaining tons of followers and that my main focus is to blog about things that i want to blog about and that make me happy. well a couple of really cool things happened last week that made me a very happy little blogger!

first of all, i hit 100 followers! like i said, it wasn't like i was trying to hit a goal or that i constantly check to see, but i logged in the other day and it kind of jumped out at me! i guess that extra digit there just didn't look right and caught my attention!


anywho - to my new followers - thank you so much for following me! i really hope you find something relevant and funny to read here that will keep you coming back. here are a couple of posts that i recommend to kind of get to know me and what i am about:

who i am, really
how i feel about my job
why i blog and what scares me
making friends and building community
how i don't have baby rabies

also - please leave a comment and introduce yourself! give me the url to your blog and tell me one fun fact about yourself! i love to meet new people and support other bloggers and i really want to meet YOU!

in other news... i mentioned makin' cute blogs in my blog design inspiration post a while back. every friday she features a blogger that has designed their own blog and last friday she featured me! i was so excited because i put so much work into making this place my second home. i'm very proud of this little badge :)
