Oh mah word!
Today calls for a "Thankful Thursday" post for a multitude of reasons.
Reason #1 - I'm thankful I hit my goal of 100 followers on the same day I published my 100th post yesterday! I'm loving that I currently have 112 followers. 112? You have to be kidding me. Andddddd, the number "12" just so happens to be my favorite and lucky number. Coincidence? I think not. Here is a big, official WELCOME to all you new ladies, I can't wait to "meet" you all!
Reason #2 - I am thankful for all the amazeball people I've "met" through blogging. Exhibit A: My homie Beth over @ SweetBef's Blog. First of all, today she published a hilarious post all about the "Grind Behind", which is a must read. I present to you step one:
here. Without her assistance, I'm not sure I would have met my goal. So thank you my little ginge, I've got a pair of Bugle Boy boxers in the mail with your name on it to say "thanks". (Don't ask)
Reason #3 - I'm thankful I got hooked up and I have a giveaway all lined up to celebrate reaching 100 followers. So hold onto your panties because tomorrow I'm doing the big reveal! Make sure you are a follower so you can enter, you're going to want to. Trust.
Reason #4 - I'm thankful my Grandma's surgery went well. This morning my Grandma had a procedure to check her ♥ and they found no heart damage. I'm so glad it's over with and her ticker is just fine.
Reason #5 - Lastly I'm thankful that today is pay day. I don't know what the hell my problem is, and even though I'm a biatch on a budget, I keep spending all my money. It's getting out of hand, and I know I've complained about it before but clearly nothing has changed. I may be a bargain shopper, but my little bargain finds all add up.
I'm going to have to force myself to create a budget in order to cut back on unnecessary spending. Anyone else have this issue or is it just me? There is a line in the Martina McBride song "This Ones For the Girls" that goes:
"This one's for all those girls about 25 ...
Just living in an apartment just trying to get by.
Livin' all, all on dreams and spaghetti o' ...
Wondering where your life is gonna go."
That line is me. Except I live on Lean Cuisines and Progresso Soup.
What really needs to happen is I need to find a billionaire, hot (not Anna Nicole Smith style) man so I don't have to work and can spend whatever the hell I want. Anyone else agree? That sounds better than a budget to me. I'm in. This is how I would roll as a Kept Woman:
