Ta da! I survived 100 posts!

Wahooo! It's like i won an Emmy or something. 100 posts! :) While i should have reached 100 forever ago, i made it and that's all that counts right?

My life has changed since I started this blog....I've gone from a fiance to a wife,

(and maybe my 200th post I'll have more titles. Maybe, maybe not. We'll see what karma brings. Me and karma aren't really that tight right now, but i think we have to make up sometime.)

Life is funny. I don't' think i have ever posted about the title of my blog. The life and mishaps? Well, during the series of events which finally landed me down that aisle, i realized that my life has always been kind crazy, and had it's fair share of mishaps. I don't mean Jerry Springer kind of crazy. It's just that I swear the oddest, and craziest things happen to me. In college, my car caught on fire out of nowhere in the middle of an ice storm. I nabbed a credit card robber at my part-time job in college. I have also replaced a trach in a two year old while he was flailing and turning blue when i taught preschool a few years back. Seriously, I can't make this crap up. For one, who gets hives, and then into a car accident two weeks before their wedding? Then, on the day of their wedding gets threatened by a homeless woman, and their trolley almost breaks down on the way to the reception? Me that is...That is my life. Some of my friends have told us that we need to have our own tv show. Between him, and me, I am sure there would be plenty of things for people to laugh at.

See I like to laugh!
So, My husband, after a few drinks last weekend told me, something i felt was a huge compliment. I like to talk a lot. If you can't tell by my blog, you'd know if you met me. Anyway, i am pretty bubbly most of the time. On the way back from the wedding, he tells me, that i talk a lot. Thanks, hun, is that a sign for me to shut up? Then he says's, "Yeah, but that's one of the reasons that i love you, it's just that you are always happy. Even when your not, your happy."

It made me all warm and gushy inside, but made me feel good that i don't let life bring me down. If i have learned anything, it's that life is short, and why let life stupid snags along the way bring you down? I have always tried not to mope, and wine, but sometimes it's unpreventable because life isn't all puppies and rainbows all the time. (ha ha)
(isn't this the cutest? a hippo and turtle cuddling?)
So, dear readers. (All 2 of you.) I have a job for you. I have become fascinated with the blog world, there are so many people out there with amazing, beautiful, funny, or sad stories to tell. There are also those like me. I've found the blog world to be huge place but it can also be a supportive world, if you've ever read Punk Rock Mommy, or Matt, Liz and Madeline's blog, it's pretty cool how people band together, and give support to those who need it, but also WHEN they need it most. Even Jenn, posted about a recent newlywed that contacted her who is going through a similar situation as she is. Now, you see, why i find the blog world to be a wonderful place.

When my hubby found out that i had a blog, he first thought it was weird. (i know, he's a silly guy) but as time went on, i think he understood more and more what it was all about. Life is crazy, and sometimes it's wonderful feeling to just write, or as little as sharing something cool I've found. Sometimes it's funny, and sometimes it's not. Just like life is.

Now, as i ramble you all ask, what's this job she wants us to do? I want you to post your favorite blog, or a new blog you just stumbled across. Share the love, man! :) Tell me who you are too!
