100th Posting!!!

It's hard to believe how consistent I've been with posting blogs since I started this blog on February 8th!!
Technically I haven't missed a day (there were a few LATE postings...due to internet problems, but I've posted a blog everyday (and sometimes more than once a day) since then!!)...I don't even know how or why it became a goal (was it even a goal? I never made it official) to post everyday...but I've almost been obsessive about it.

When I started this blog it was mostly just to keep record of the things I was doing with Gunnar so that I could look back and have it documented for future reference...
But it's evolved beyond that.

I'm not sure exactly how to describe it...but writing this blog has helped me be more accountable. It's kept me on track and made me want to get up and get things done.

I've also learned that it isn't just my family who is paying attention to this blog. It seems every time I see and old friend or acquaintance even...I hear "I enjoy reading your blog" or something like that...and it just gives me warm fuzzies every time!! I'm honored that so many people are enjoying taking this journey with me.  IN HONOR of my 100th post...I'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM MY READERS.  If you read everyday...or even just once in a while... Would you honor this Anniversary by posting below or on Facebook:

1. Your favorite posting or the posting you found to be most helpful/interesting or intriguing so far...
2. A topic you'd like me to cover in a future posting. -or-
3. Why you like reading this blog...

  1. Kristen,
    I want you to know that I read every single post (thank you Google Reader subscription) and love hearing about your mommyhood adventures. This is especially true as I'm due with my first little one this summer. Reading your blog with great advice and honesty has been awesome. Keep up the good work.

  2. I too read every single post. I like the peppy tone and it's nice to have a little daily snapshot into the life of another first-time mom with a very similar-aged baby boy. I wish you lived closer! Keep the posts coming! XO, Lisa

  3. I love reading your posts because you're so honest about yourself, but mostly, you have a darling little boy and I love watching him grow!

  4. I like seeing what you're up to. :) Miss you!

  5. I love that G and Emma are close in age and that you and I have some things in common! And I read every day : )

    I think a "day in the life of" post would be fun, I'm working on one for sometime in the next couple of weeks.
