Hey everybody... Guess what? This is my 200th post! Hooray! For my 100th post, I did it up, but this time around, I'm going to do things a little different. You see, in so many ways, blogging has changed my life. I know that sounds really corny, but I'll bet if you have a blog, you feel the same way. All of a sudden, I was writing just for me... just for the love of it. At the end of my graduate studies, when the last thing on earth I wanted to do was write another paper, I fell in love with writing. That alone was amazing. That alone was more than enough. Then, almost magically, I connected with and met other bloggers. Trust me, I never even knew that was possible. A few people I've met through this crazy thing called blogging have become some of my closest friends. I've gained a Bug, a little sister (who I get to celebrate with next week for her 25th birthday!) and someone to stalk until she agreed to be my friend. How lucky am I?
And tonight... I get to meet 68, count 'em, new bloggers/soon to be best friends. Yep, a little something called Bloggers in Sin City is this weekend. I'm super excited and only a little nervous to walk into a group where I know no one. There is lots and lots of fun planned, however, and I'll be sure to recap it next week.
Also on the agenda this weekend... A big ol' family wedding at Mandalay Bay. I can't tell you how excited I am to reconnect with members of my family I haven't seen in years. It's going to be a busy weekend with a whole lot of me running around and trying to decide if I should adhere to the rules of my new eating regimen or just say to hell with it and have that glass of champagne/jello shot/vodka redbull. We'll see...
I know it's only Thursday, but... Happy, happy weekend to you!
