Oh happy day

Today is my day! Oh yeah baby...it’s all about ME!

Today is my day in the spotlight with SITS, a blogging community full of awesome women!

If you are a first time visitor, WELCOME! Come on in and take a look around. If you’ve been here before...well, you know what to do!

I’m so excited you are all visiting on my special day. I feel like I should be thanking my fellow blogistas, my family, and of course, the academy for this honor. In fact, I am so pumped with adrenalin today that it makes me want to challenge Jack Pallance to a one armed push up contest at the podium...if only he were still here...I would so do it!

Wow, I hope that didn’t just scare you off. For those of you brave enough to stick around I have linked you to a few of my favorite posts that I hope will make you smile.

Click here to learn a little bit about my retirement package. I hope this can’t be construed as child abuse...legal advice on this would be much appreciated!

Here is where I talk about the sexual revolution and how it has warped the society we live in today.

And here is a doozie…this is one of my many first date experiences. Check it out and catch a glimpse of what us single thirty somethings are dealing with on the dating front

Oh and because I’m not just all about receiving…I have a little gift for all of you that stop by today.

Check it out below…feel free to use it as many times as you wish!

  96. Happy SITS day! I have to give you props. One of my worse fears is that someday I would have to date again (ignore that fact that that would mean my husband would have to leave me or die...and that would be terrible.) You are an amazing woman...doing that thing that scares me almost more than anything.

  103. Happy SITS Day. I met my Hubs at age 30 via Eharmony, and not until I had a very long stretch of very bad dates. I appreciated your post about your first date as a newly single mom.

    I am a follower.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Although never given a coupon, I have lived by the Code of the Coupon since email first landed squarely on my horizon.

    But I think I will refer the coupon to others, because I think it's fair to that I not solely assume responsibility for the deaths of countless email chains. Really...people could help me with that, right? Do I have to assume ALL the karmic responsibility here?

    ReplyDelete
  105. Holy Crap, you write well!!!!! Happy SITS day! I am really enjoying purusing your blog!

  136. Happy SITS Day!

    I, too, loathe and detest chain e-mails and it seems that the people who send them to me are never on the same wave length as I am---so, why do I keep getting them? Maybe we should make it our quest in life to put an end to those things! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  137. Happy SITS day!! Thanks for the gift, I think I'll just make it a permanent part of my signature. LOL Let me know when those drawings go on eBay: I want one!! Can't wait to read more.
