Happy Anniversary, you sassy bitch.


I blog so I can look back on my life when I'm old. I blog because I like to show off my cute kids. I blog so I can gossip about celebrities when no one else will listen. Who am I kidding? I blog because I love the attention.

Exactly one year ago today, I started Handbags & Handguns. I went in with low expectations. I'd blogged before. Only a handful of people were interested in what I had to say. Now, there are people who actually care. I've found a number of great blogs over the last twelve months. I've laughed at your stories. I've cried at your pain. I've been in awe of your talent. I've been excited for you. I've even wanted to raid your closets. A lot of people were disappointed with 2009. Personally, I think 2009 kicked ass.

Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
Your heart is true; you're a pal and a confidant

I'm not ashamed to say
I hope it always will stay this way
My hat is off; won't you stand up and take a bow

And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you knew
You would see, the biggest gift would be for me
And the card attached would say
Thank you for being a friend

I too love, love, love your blog. It is super-fun to read all the time. By the way, I have the leaked Eclipse script if you have absolutely no will power like me, and want to check it out. I promised myself no clips at all this year prior to watching, then I go and read the stupid (great) script. So much romance (ooppps, sorry!).
