I’d like to thank everyone who commented, tweeted, messaged and called me about my previous post. I’m still processing the COUNTLESS emotions that I felt while reading and can’t thank you enough for the encouragement. I’ve been tearing up for roughly 12-hours, so I decided to research some links that will make you smile! Except for the one about animals. You’ll need a Kleenex for that one. Have a great weekend everyone! And thank you for reading. My cup runneth over!

I just noticed that this is a year old, but it’s still interesting. Pumpkin-flavored food items to get your ready for fall! Did you know that they make pumpkin Peeps? WHAAAATTT???

Look at that screen grab! Does anyone recognize it?. This was my first blog post. I remember feeling super technical and wildly vulnerable at the same time.

For those of you who don’t know, I started recapping The Bachelor on April 3, 2003 with an email to three girls. It sort of grew too big for me to handle, so my work friend Jason forced me to get a blog. Two years later, Jason convinced me to get a legitimate website with an actual URL. In August 2008, I launched iHateGreenBeans as a place to tell my story. You won’t be able to find those earlier posts. I accidentally deleted them and still cry to this day if I think about it too long.

Here we are, 12 years later and the darn thing is still kicking. Believe me when I say that no one is as surprised as I am.

I’ve been sitting here, staring at a blank page for about 30 minutes as Christy Nockels plays in the background. Words are my life. Writing comes easy for me, yet I can’t seem to figure out how to convey how much this little website has impacted me in ways that I could never imagine. Hear me when I say that it has nothing to do with the mechanics or stories. It has EVERYTHING to do with the people on the other side of the screen who take time out of their day to read what I have to say.

This thought is absolutely overwhelming to me.

Happy Birthday Mama

I am one of the luckiest people on the planet. Partly because I get to write about nonsense for a living, but mostly because I have one amazing mother. Ask anyone.

She’s taught me so many life lessons. And since we are in the days leading up to a very significant birthday, I thought I would share them with you so we can all celebrate the woman who helped mold me into the person I am today.

Here are a few tips straight from Linea. Enjoy!

1. Everyone looks better in sunglasses.
