Can you believe that it’s been a year since I started this thing? Me neither. And what a year it’s been! When I started on this magical adventure in public narcissism last year, my husband was an unemployed attorney who had never been to Europe and I was a full-time work-from-home contractor who had never been to graduate school.
And look at us now!
My husband is now an employed attorney who has been to Europe and I am a full-time work-from-home contractor who also attends graduate school full-time. To celebrate our successes (and even our various not-so-successes), I thought I’d tell you all about my 12 favorite things that have happened during this year of blogging:
- 12: Bret got a job!
…after a year and twenty three days of unemployment no less. Sometimes, we even go to fancy parties.
- 11: Someone sent me a free book!
- 10: GOMI noticed me!
…to be fair, it was for a comment I made on my good buddy Lladybird’s blog. Notoriety in any form, right?
- 9: Kendra bought me lunch!
…and we all discovered that she’s not 6’8”.
8: Super Swell Times won a crazy chain letter award!
This was also thanks to Kendra. Which obviously means that we’re going to be best friends forever, right? RIGHT?
- 7: I confessed a lot of embarrassing things!
From my stint as a terrible liturgical dancer to the fact that I don’t understand what parish hopping means, we covered a lot of ground this year (including the time I was attacked by a herd of goats). I predict even more shameless confessing this year.
- 6: We spent a lot of time discussing buzz words!
- 5: The Bunny survived!
…hip hop hooray.
- 4: I started graduate school!
…and so far we’re all still alive!
- 3: I made new friends!
- 2: Super Swell Times was nominated for a Sheenazing Award!
I didn’t win, but I’m not going to let that get me down!
- 1: We went to Europe!
…Which was definitely the coolest thing we did this year:
