holy 1 year

1 year? really?  this blog is already ONE YEAR OLD!?!?

feels like it was just yesterday i was writing my first post, talking about making rhubarb jam poptarts!

...and found out that we were moving
(wait, we've been in jersey city for 9 months already?? i still don't have everything in its place yet!!)

...and decided i was doing a month-long detox
(that i'm seriously thinking about doing again... it felt SO good!!)

...and changed the name of the blog from "Two Peas Teeny Pod" to "Beyond The Stoop"
(does anyone remember this header!?!?)


...and had lots and lots of family visitors
(i say this all the time, but who's NEXT!!?)

....and got a rockin t-shirt tan from working on the space shuttle transfer lift in manhattan
(realized AFTER i got to work today that my short sleeves today are MUCH shorter than they were while working on the shuttle. it's like i'm TRYING to highlight my awesome tanlines.)

so what's new coming up in the NEXT year of blogging!??

you'll get to see me check out Denver, Mexico, Florida (ahhh can't wait to see THIS little guy's face again!!), and of course trips back to our homeland of Ohio.

but ALSO!

i want to start taking this blog seriously.  logically the next step is sponsoring blogs and gaining advertisers... but i'm just not ready for the "gaining advertisers" part.  or at least REAL advertisers.  like, ones that pay MONEY to do it.

so, i want to start with button-swapping!  it helps you, it helps me, it helps readers find new awesome bloggers. it's not just a win-win, it's a win-win-WIN!!
(ok that was a cheeseball statement, apologizing now)

if you want to button-swap with me, email me at email@beyondthestoop.com

can't wait to start showing off your lovely faces in my sidebar :D

cheers!

p.s.... new year, new do.

(not sure why i look scared outta my mind in the first pic. or why i thought it was ok to let my brown roots grow to over an inch long with almost-bleach-blonde hair, but you get the point. new cut, new color, so happy!) 

thanks mr p, for being my stylist (cut only, color done by balance, the crazy salon near my house), manicurist, and personal chef.  i'd be a lot poorer without you
(well, and lonely too, but that's a given :P)
