and many more…

I just don’t understand how this happened. The blog birthday has come and gone, and I completely missed it. You would think the huge number of comments on that day would have reminded me. Just for the record, one is a huge number when it comes to comments on this blog. Unless you count my friends at British Payday Loans and the Nigerian prince who wants to deposit “USD 10 million” in my bank account. Not that I am bitter. I talk to myself enough to know that I don’t need a lot of outside communication.

So anyway, I missed the THREE year anniversary of starting this blog. I don’t think I have ever stuck with anything for three whole years. Unless you count SK (11 years) and my current job (10 years). On second thought, I may be in this for the long haul. I know you are thrilled. JUST THRILLED.

As in years past, I thought it would be fun to do a blog birthday giveaway. I am feeling really beachy this week, so I decided on cute measuring spoons and a brass bottle opener from Anthropologie.


I know you were probably expecting Chanel or something, but the prince hasn’t made the deposit yet. Maybe I will host another giveaway when my British Payday Loan is approved.

Leave a comment, and a winner will be chosen at random next week. Contain yourself.

Seahorse out.

Congrats to Dana Miller! You are the winner of the birthday giveaway. I already emailed you for your address and will get these cuties to you ASAP. Thanks everyone for entering and especially for all the sweet comments. Y’all are the best!
