happy blog-iversary to me!

Sunday, April 27, 2014

So today marks one whole month of blogging for me!

I wasn't sure where I was going with this when I started. I had hopes that starting this blog would help me change my frumpy ways or at the very least motivate me to try and look a little more put together. I knew I wanted a place where I was semi-accountable for the way I looked. I have to say, so far, so good!

Here are a few things I didn't anticipate:

Blogging is a great outlet - after a sleepless night (thank you mini-me, lucky you're super cute) and a long day at work, it's so nice to be able to sit down and write about whatever. OR, if I don't feel like writing, I can read what everyone else has to say!

New friends - I've found some AMAZING women since I started blogging! I started reading new blogs and met some amazing people. I joined Alison's Style Challenge and met even more great women. I also joined some linkups (didn't know what that was a month ago) which led me to even more wonderful women bloggers! I have found some GREAT blogs that I can't wait to read!

Confidence boost - some very sweet readers have said some very kind things about my blog and my outfits. It feels great, when you've been living in pajamas for the better part of a year, to hear that people think to look great. Thank you!

Going out of my comfort zone - I've been wearing things I normally wouldn't even consider i.e. statement necklaces AND WHITE PANTS!!!!!! Yes folks, in honor of my one month blog-iversary AND because the style challenge told me to, I WORE WHITE PANTS TODAY! I am happy to report that I didn't sit in chocolate, spill coffee on myself, or squirt ketchup everywhere. Go me! I may even consider wearing them again!



A few (very sweet) people have commented how 'not frumpy' I am. Here's the thing: that's the point. This blog was the kick in the yoga pants I desperately needed. I am counting on it (and you) to keep me out of my yoga pants and in things I look and feel good in.

On that note, I'm going to continue to blog about my struggle to stay out of yoga pants (unless I'm doing yoga of course) but I am also hoping to add some more parenting, lifestyle and health and wellness stuff into the mix!

Until next time...
