Back To Blogging ~ Starting At The Beginning

So I have decided to participate in the SITS Back to Blogging Event. Not that I actually think I have a shot at winning the prize -
Thelma and Louise ~ Washer and Dryer from Electrolux
But more so because I liked the topics and thought it might be fun to look back over the past few years since I started this blog.

On July 29, 2008 I created this blog and posted my first post


Hello, and welcome all to my version of Sex and the City. That is if Carrie was 25, divorced, starting a new job, and had no clue where her life was going. I have always wanted to write and during this time in my life I have decided to take the cards life has handed me and write about them anonymously in hopes of entertaining people with the twists my life is taking. Most events I write about will be true, however I am reserving the right to take a creative license and embellish a little so as to make them more entertaining. And some events may not be what I did but what instead I wish I would have done. Which posts are fact and which are fiction? That will be for you to decide. So here is to a new chapter in life....

HAHAHAHAHAHA I'm sorry I laugh just re-reading this!

I would like to be able to say that I have used "creative license" or "embellished" but nope. Sorry, everything I've written has been how it happened. I think I really only threw these fancy words in to cover my butt in case my secret-anonymous-blog was ever discovered. Kinda like my own personal built in escape clause.

And "writing about what I wish I would have done" --- again nope. Looking back there are a few posts I wish I could rewrite with what I SHOULD have done. Most of those would have went much like this.....

Mr. Big----> Not a good idea. It never was and never will be. Run like hell and don't look back. Period.
Marine1 -----> Not a good idea. You know it. But there's another Marine out there that's perfect for you!!
Fire Guy ----> He will one day be your brother-in-law and you will pretend like this time in your life never existed. Enjoy the friendship but be glad/thankful it never turns into anything more.
(Mis)Adventures ----> Some of these may not bring about the best memories while others can bring a smile to your face just recalling them. Fun times with friends you'll never regret.

What an Adventure it has been in starting over.

Join me and participate in this SITS Back to Blogging Event.

Isn't it fun to sometimes look back at where we started to see how far we've come? I had no idea Fire Guy was your brother in law to be. Urhmmm, ok I need to go back and re-read some of these entries!

lol yeah thats the awkward part! lol I've wrote about him since I just haven't called him Fire-Guy any more usually just Marine-Brother lol

Super awkward at first and I almost didn't date Marine because of it. But Fire Guy and I only went on a few dates so it was never serious and he was actually one of the many that was for trying to fix me and Marine up :)

They're actually Step-Brother but may as well be real brothers.

This is a fun post!

It's great to look back and see how much we've changed and what we've learned. At least, I think so.

Anyway, I'm visiting you from SITS and I'll bet you've got every bit as good of a chance at Thelma and Louise as I do! Good luck!
