AAAHHHH I’m so excited!! So as you can see from the image, I actually hit 100,000 views last night, but I didn’t have time to post about it until now!!  I was literally clicking “refresh” every 30 seconds to see when it would happen.  I almost felt like confetti should have fallen from the ceiling and the National Anthem played (or something like that).  This really is super exciting for me, and I want to thank every single one of you for reading my blog!

In fact, I really want to do giveaways like I see other blogs doing just to show you how much I appreciate you!  The only problem is, I have no idea how bloggers get all that free stuff to give away.  I’ve contacted some super exciting companies about possibly partnering with me in a giveaway of one of their products, but I haven’t heard back from anyone.  Anyways, I say all that to reach this point:  I want to give you stuff to show you how awesome I think you are.  Hopefully, I will be able to start doing that soon. Until then, keep checking back for recipes and any news of potential giveaways!
