Pop Open the Bubbly! It's Our Six-Year Blogiversary

Six years, chickadees. SIX. I have been banging away on this Mac since 2009. (Insert wide-eyed emoji face.) I think my feelings on this, err, milestone (?) can best be summed up in one word, made famous by beloved Blossom character Joey:

I wish I had a very deep and meaningful post about this most auspicious occasion, but instead, I thought I'd just extend my thanks to all of you for sticking around this long through the medium of song.

In my extensive research for this post, I learned that candy (YUM!) or wood (giggle, giggle...wink, wink), are the two traditional anniversary gifts for year six, but I was afraid the candy would melt and the pencils would break. Those darn US Postal workers these days ; )

So, my friend Bette wrote a little ditty for you. Oh, Bette. Always on her game, that girl.

Whether you've been here since the beginning or you're just getting acquainted - thank you. I mean that. 


Gawww, y'all! Our friends at Nordstrom must have gotten wind of this momentous blog occasion because they're having THEIR anniversary sale! And girls, it's good. Real good. 

Beginning today, all Nordstrom Rewards members can shop the annual mega sale. How do you become a Nordie Rewards member? It's easy. Just apply for the credit card and take advantage of deals beginning today until July 16. 

No credit card? No problemo. On July 17, non-Rewards members can still take advantage of the awesome sales. Capice?


Alright, I'm off to do Thursday things. Whatever those are.

Be good or be good at it, ladies.

  5. I think I've been around for at least 3 years of reading your blog and I LOVE it !!! I've been reading since before you just met your hubby on Kelly's Korner blog :) And I've been following your sweet family since !

  6. Congratulations on six years!! That's huge! I think I started reading your blog 3-4 years ago, and you helped inspire me to start my own. You will always be one of my favorites to read.


  7. Leslie - congrats! I've only been following you for about a year and had no idea until I just saw the comment above that you met through Kelly's Korner. Wild! Here is to HEALTH and happiness in the coming year!
