Milestones

Ooh, two days in a row of blog posts! I hope this doesn't set too high of a bar for the rest of the year. :) Anywho, I wanted to ask all of you kittens out there a question about later this year. But first, I'll set this up for you:

You see, July 2012 is going to be a pretty big year for both this blog and myself. 2O July I am turning 3O. Yes, 3O. A big adult number. Getting older doesn't bother me per se, but the expectations that come with my aging do. (I'm not sure this blog is quite the place for this, but I have been playing with the idea of making this blog more multi-purpose in the hopes that I'll update more.) Things about me and my personality that were seen as quirks are going to become less tolerable to those that think I should hurry up and grow up already. Most people are not willing to accept that Adults--especially not MOTHERS *pearl clutch*--can dye their hair mermaid colors, which I'm rather fond of doing.









Please excuse the web cam picture.

What growing up really means is debatable, but most days I feel like Allie from Hyperbole and a Half. I'm still waiting for my trophy for the days I've managed to be a full grown up; the rest of the time I'm wondering how other people manage to Do All The Things and not putz away their time on the internet.










Story of my life right there.

Back on track.... 26 July is this blog's 5th anniversary. See where I began? I like numbers that are multiples of 5, and 5 years seems to be an acceptable milestone.

So I got to thinking: should I do something for my upcoming birthday/blog-iversary? I know I have a handful of regular readers, so I thought I'd ask you if there's anything you'd like to see me do that month. Giveaway? Special posts? Silly contest of some sort? Something else?

???

Help me kittens, you're my only hope.

Maybe a top 5 from the last five years? What a big month!:)

Ooh, I would need suggestions for what to put on there. In theory, I'd like to do a few special things in July, but I'm afraid of getting so caught up in wanting it to be perfect that I'll be unable to do anything.

Don't change (grow up) I love you just the way you are! and love reading your blog. You can add more personal stuff to your blog if want (I do it to mine, otherwise I'd never have enough stuff to blog about, lol).
What a great year! and great birthday month. My granddaughter's birthday is July 20th.
I love the idea of some silly stuff/contest on your blog. If you like lists, you could do "30 things..." (I like, I've done, I'd like to do, etc)

Hmm, maybe something like favorite recipes, projects, things you have learned in life. They can be fun, they don't have to be serious:)

What about a Top 5 projects you have completed? You can look back at them and tell us about why they are your favorites.

Why would you stop dying your hair awesome colors? Lord knows I upped my red rather than brown when I hit 30! Can't wait until this baby is out of me so I can get to dying again too!

Also, I like the idea of your five fav projects, but maybe your five fav yarns? Five fav knitting trends? Five fav patterns you have not yet knitted?

On a sidenote, my verification word is "skintart". Awesome.
