a missed milestone and a huge honor

Before I go into this long whine explanation of how I missed a milestone, I need to share something exciting.

Today I am the Featured Blogger on Theta Mom!

I have been in love with TMC for over a year now.  Heather’s was one of the first communities I found that I not only felt fit who I am, but who was personal enough…where I wasn’t just a blogger on a huge list that no one looked at.  And because of that I have found SOO many of the bloggers whom I consider my friends today.

So go check out my feature?  Thanks.

Ok…back to this thing I missed…

I have had a lot of things going on around here lately, in case you haven’t noticed.

I have some pretty sweet giveaways going on…like this giveaway that is super cute and is only good until 4pm today.  Or this one that is exactly the the thing you want to enter if you are looking to switch to wordpress (psst…FOUR winners will be chosen).

We decided we really want to try to help this guy and his wife get a baby.

I have been plotting with this lady and this lady about this little blog we are doing some MAJOR stuff to.

And just this week I have been added to the management team at Studio30 Plus.  I am in charge of some of the facebook and twitter stuff.  Not that I know anything about that.  ahem.

We’ve been busy off line too.

We did Fourth of July things.

I have started to freak out about my trip across the country to BlogHer that is happening in three weeks (THREE WEEKS!!!).

And my kid jumped into a pool for the very first time…see?

So you can see how some things might have slipped my mind, right?

Ok, so a BIG thing slipped my mind.

July 7 was my four-year blogoversary.

Yup, I started Sluiter Nation on 07/07/07.  It was supposed to be lucky.  I would say it has been.

Cue the confetti and balloons, right?  No?  Oh well.

I’ve been here for four years.

And I’m not going anywhere.

Well, except camping this weekend.
