as far as reaching 500 readers on blogger, i'm a little excited. i'm not claiming to have an outrageously successful blog or that i'm really cool (because i'm not) but i feel really blessed nonetheless. 500! that is so cool! that's like the entire size of my high school! so i've decided to make this a 'yay!' kind of week and i'll be posting different things this week along the lines of two q&a posts from questions you all submitted, an awesome giveaway, a compiled list of my favorite blogs, and other exciting-ish things that i hope we all enjoy. yay!! thank you.
