One Year Blog Anniversary!

Today marks the day that my blog turns 1!!

Happy birthday little bloggy blog :)

One year ago from today I posted my very first tutorial for this pink and frilly pillow:

Man reading that post is embarrassing! I have learned a TON over this past year about blogging, that is for sure!!

I remember when I started my blog I thought, "Man, it would really be cool to get 1,000 followers in a year. That would be a great goal....nah....that will never happen"

Well, if you have happened to glace at my little box of followers in the past two days, I just recently hit 1000!!!!!! Right in time for my anniversary and to make my very first blogging goal.

Thank you so much to everyone who has read my blog - I hope you have enjoyed the tutorials and little insights into my little ole life. 

I'm not sure what my "goal" will be fore next year yet, but I do know the general direction I'd like my blog to go in. I want to do a lot more jewelry tutorials since that is what I know best and what you all seem to enjoy most! I also plan to do a lot more home decor/improvement posts after February because.....have I mentioned yet that we put an offer in on a house AND IT WAS ACCEPTED???WHOOO!!! I'll give more details later, but we are set to settle Feb. 22nd - 3 days before the wedding. 


So, things may be a little hectic over here for the next two months as I try to get adjusted to working full time, taking classes on the weekend for my real estate license, AND finish planning all these dang little details for the wedding, but don't worry I'm not going anywhere. Thank you SO much for being my readers. I love ya all :)
