What would a party be without us BOTH?

Y'all didn't really think we were gonna party seperately did you? Not when we have so much fun TOGETHER! And it's better this way, because it means you have TWO chances to win an awesome Blogiversary giveaway!

One year ago today, Tanielle and I both started blogging. For me, I thought it might be a good way to promote our hairbow busines. But I quickly learned that the true value of my blog was in the wonderful women I've met and the wonderful friends I've made - some who have even become close friends outside of Bloggerville.

I've laughed, cried, been inspired, and received the best comments from some of the smartest, funniest, kindest ladies I've ever known. Thank you all for all of it!

And thank you Tanielle for partying with me, and for being one of the people I've had the most fun with in my life. Ever.



10 things I love about Tanielle
1. I love that she shares a maturity level equivalent to mine (in it's near non-existence!)

2. I love that she always paints my girls fingernails and toenails whenever they come over to visit.

3. I love how she's afraid of EVERYTHING...it makes it especially entertaining for me when we watch vampire shows together!

4. I love her beautiful smile!

5. I love how organized she is. I wish I could be more like her that way!

6. I love her cute handwriting.

7. I love how she takes time for her kids when they need her attention. I've mentioned this before, but I've often seen her stop what she is doing to take time to listen to what they have to say. I am so bad at a that!

8. I love that she shares my passion for NKOTB.

9. I love how she doesn't judge me and my poor housekeeping skills...when she is the domestic goddess of organization and cleanliness!

10. I love that she shares my beliefs and that just as much as we can be silly and immature together, we can have long, serious talks about spiritual things, and she gets me...because it's how she feels too.

I'm so glad we met that first day of Kindergarten for our little boys, who are now going into jr. high next year! Gah! We are not that old, right?

So to celebrate my 1 year blogiversary, and also my wonderful friend Tanielle who shares this blogiversary with me...I have to have a giveaway, right?

How would you like to win a package filled with some of Tanielle's favorite things? The contents will be a surprise. But Tanielle loves things that smell good, things that taste good, and things that are pretty...so I can promise you won't be disappointed! Giveaway ends Feb 1 at 11:59 p.m. MST.

All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment. That's it! And if you'd like a chance to win a package of MY favorite things...well head on over to Tanielle's and party a little with her!
Here's to another fabulous year! Mwah!
