Happy 6th Birthday / 1000 Posts!

On Saturday, my little old blog turned SIX years old.  I can distinctly remember the day during my junior day of college that I thought maybe, just maybe, I could start a blog.  After all, I did have a lot to say. 

Maybe.  Lots of worrying and hemming and hawing later, this blog was born.  I hadn't yet settled on "Classy & Fabulous" yet - it was too snobby. 


Fortunately, I was wearing the Classy & Fabulous t-shirt that would eventually lead to this blog's title.  Can't say that I'm a genius, but I figured it out eventually.

In grand fashion, I will also hit my 1,000th post this week.  I cannot believe I've had 1,000 things to say.  I was going to say "1,000 unique things" to say... but we ALL know I haven't had that many original thoughts - at least on this blog.

I was hoping to do some sort of grand giveaway for this momentous milestone, but nothing really comes to mind.  Well, probably a Target gift card, but I accidentally on purpose spent all the Target money myself, OOPS.

At the time, I had been reading several "big" blogs and was really just content to read along with other people's adventures.... but I craved a little more interaction.  Which is funny, because I didn't receive my first blog comment until nearly a month later (April 26th).  Back in those days, I know Pinterest didn't exist and Twitter was just 2 years old and I had never heard of it! 

I've had lots of highs and lows with this blog over the years and even after neglect and so many bad posts, I'm always excited to bring life back into it and come back to my old friend.

Any chance you'll do me a favor and tell me when you stumbled upon my slice of the internet?

Happy Monday!

Happy blog-aversary, Sarah! I honestly don't know how I found your site, though I'm guessing by clicking from another blog. I always enjoy your posts, your honesty and all the joint wedding planning we seemed to do from afar :) To many more!

I can't recall how I found you.. it was through random clicking I'm sure.. but if I recall correctly, it was a few months before Mr. RH. maybe even a little longer before than that. haha.

Melanie said...

It was last summer when we were both wedding planning! YAY!

erin said...

I don't remember how I found your blog, but it was right when you started dating Mr. RH and I have been reading ever since!

I feel like I have been reading you forever! I'm not sure if you found me or if I found you first?

Gina said...

Congratulations! I found your blog thru another (can't remember who). I think you "keep it real" and I am originally from the Indy area too so I kept on reading....

Happy anniversary! I can't remember how I found your blog, but I've been reading it for maybe three-ish years.

Happy Birthday! I found your blog a few months before you started talking about Mr. RH. I found it during a break on campus when I was looking for fashion blogs by random googling. I ended up spending hours reading all your posts backwards because I loved how honest and fun your writing was!

What. A. Milestone! Congrats!! I've been reading you forever! Pretty sure it was when you first started. You were in college! And I think you even had a black background but my memory is pretty snotty so don't quote me on that! Here's to many more adventures! :)

Happy 6 years! I'm pretty sure I found you through someone else's blog. I've always loved your honesty and your writing is so funny! I feel like we are pretty much the same person! :) I guess I've been reading for probally 3.5 years! Crazy!! Here's to many more! :)
