5 Years, Baby!

Well, well, well. I guess with all of this nursing and cooing and diaper changing, I missed my 5-year blogging anniversary last month. 5 years, y’all! That’s quite a lot of rambling.

I’ve been reading through my archives lately; mostly to compare my newborn experiences (strikingly similar minus most of my first-time neuroses), and as much as I hem and haw about what and how much I should include in my posts, I am so glad I have those snippets to walk me down memory lane.

When I started this blog in 2005, I was a childless newlywed who spent the majority of my time wearing J. Crew suits and sipping decaf lattes and/or wine, depending on the time of day. I occasionally dabbled in performance art.

Now? This best represents my life.

And I love it.

So, guess what? I just found out that whoorl was nominated for Orange County’s Best Personal Blog by the lovely Kelly and Collen of Just Spotted! And the icing on the cake? Hair Thursday was nominated for Best Beauty/Shopping Blog too! Dude! I don’t think I’ve ever been nominated for anything! (For good reason, right? Wait. Don’t answer that.)

Would you all take a second to vote for my blog(s)? You don’t need to sign in or anything, just click here and make your choices. Of course, only if you think I’m deserving of A Major Award. I must say, it would be a perfect way to celebrate 5 years.

(p.s. – I don’t have a chance in hell, but hey! Positive thinking!)

    Happy anniversary! I remember the old days, esp. whenever I thin of Anne Curry’s hair.

    Well I would have voted anyway, but since you quoted A Christmas Story, then of course I had to :-)
