Update and Reasons to Celebrate!!!

I’m starting my first set of work for the Census on Tuesday. I’m headed to Bon Secour, Alabama. Given everything I know about Bon Secour, I’ll be posting about it later this week (I see great seafood and scenery in my future (did I mention I’m psychic)).

On to the most important business.
So many amazing people are having contests this month in celebration of reaching an impressive number of followers. You should swing by all their blogs, not just for the contests, but because they are awesome! Also, Wednesday is a certain amazing person’s Birthday!!! Be prepared to celebrate!

Silver Lining
Julie’s “200 Awesome People Contest” contest ended on Sunday (I think, stupid me for getting behind) but she still needed mention on here. HELLO, she has 200 Awesome People following her (and happens to be awesome herself). Mention is necessary.

  1. Good luck with the Census work! And thank you so much for the mention! :) I'm looking forward to reading everyone's dream sequences myself! I find that these blogfests are great at helping me to understand what mechanisms work best for me as I read everyone else's excerpts.

  2. I'm a bit late getting here, but thanks for the contest mention, good lady. Much appreciated! Congrats on your win, too. Maybe you're on a roll! ;)
