We’re Goin’ Live!, F.A.T. & Happy Anniversary!

July 1, 2008

Tonight is an extra special night! Our strange friends from PA πŸ˜‰ will be here with us Live tonight!!! We’re all pretty excited about this! (notice all the exclamations πŸ˜€ ) We may switch things up a bit too…

Go here at 5 PM PST/8 PM EST (that’s 8 AM for you Love πŸ˜‰ ) and join us for a Live Chat!

Wanted to share with you also about a new fun way to spend your Tuesday. Total Transformation has started something called F.A.T. – Funny Acronym Tuesday Go to his place and get involved. It’s gonna be a riot! Trust me!!!

So yesterday was my One Year Bog Anniversary! It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long already either. A lot has happened in that time. Many things personally, emotionally and Spiritually that have left me a changed person. Changed for the better, I hope πŸ˜‰ I feel I have grown a lot this last year and I owe much of that to you, my extended family. There is truly no way I can possibly express to you what your friendship means to me! You have enriched my life. I am daily humbled that you would come by my little space on the World Wide Web and spend a couple of your precious minutes with me. Me?!! Blows me away!

Thank you for making this adventure more than I thought it would be! I treasure all of you. And I am so blessed to do life with you! Thank you for inviting me in to yours! Here is my first post dated 6/30/07…

“Oh my goodness I just created a blog! I don’t know what just got into me. Maybe it’ll come out in this thing somewhere down the line…. I know my husband is on his blog ( I can’t believe I just created a link!!! ) daily – he loves it – I love it – so why not have my own, right? I guess I have fought it for so long because I don’t want to be responsible for someone wasting part of their day reading a strangers blog – hmmm… I guess that’s up to them now huh? I’ll try to come up with something profound to write this weekend… Stay tuned! I say that as if someone will actually read this.”

    You’ve come a long way! Happy 1st Blog Anniversary!! Here’s to many more years of fruitful, funny blogging.

    Wow, Happy 1st Blog Anniversary. The amazing thing is what God has done with your blog since you started. The way that there are testimonies here, friendships, fun, your thoughts about God. So good. You have to do something to celebrate πŸ™‚

    I love the last line of that first post “…as if someone will actually read this.” Look at your blogroll…how profound is that?

    Tam you have no idea the impact you have. I can’t speak to how you’ve grown, but I can tell you how glad I am that you started your blog that day, and that I found it oh so many months later. Through you posts you have offered me strength, challenged me in my faith, given me hope and inspiration and made me laugh.

    Thanks for doing what you do and for being you. Thanks for being a light on a dark and scary path…

    Congrats on a year…don’t stop now you’re on a roll!!

    Reading your blog has never been ‘wasting part of my day”. I have a new daughter! Hope you have many new years blogging – I started commenting on blogs July 2006 – started my own December 2007.

    Not unlike most 1-year-olds, you are a joy. I will arrive late to the party tonight since I will be working on my daughter’s and son-in-law’s townhouse.

    But I will click in sometime. Is this a B.Y.O. chat?

    the harmonies were so dead on that i’m convinced he was running y’all through an auto-tuner.
    and kass knew right when to come in.
    and the blend – perfect.

    i was thoroughly impressed. not that i wasn’t expecting perfection. but there was something more than perfection to it.

    Yeah… Mandy is so “dead on” You guys were awesome.

    Truthfully, I was making dinner and I started praising while making Chimichangas.

    It was a blast!!!
