I think I'm going to pee myself...

I bet when I look back at my first blog post ever I'm going to regret making that the title. But hey, it sounds witty and clever right now and I'm not much of a regretter… SO I'll risk it. Back to bodily functions… I'm so stinking excited right now I could pee my pants! I have been reading blogs since before they were "cool". (and if you're not a SAHM you might not even be aware that they are cool, but they are the cats meow). My wonderful hubs has been nudging me forever to just do the dang thing but I've got some insecurities y'all.
Even though countless people for YEARS (even an alarm saleswoman) have stepped into my home or read my Facebook statuses and responded, "you should have a blog, I'd read it" I have had this ugly little fear that mine would suck. I've been waiting for the perfect layout, or logo, or pictures, or topic, or renovation, or craft, or anything to make my blog perfect(!!) to come along and make me worthy enough to be a blogger.

 I've had dreams of my first post and how flawless it would be. I'd "launch" my new blog with perfectly edited pictures, and a sidebar that made you drool, flawless tabs, and subtle ads that didn't scream desperate but were right on with my readers. I'd hit submit and whadda' know? "7,000 followers? Why sure YoungHouseLove you can guest post… get in line." ;) Yup, that's how it went in my head, and until I could guarantee that, I was frozen in fear. Then, 5 years passed and many opportunities to start sharing my adventures passed me by and I am sick of waiting for perfection. So yay for you! I just jumped in unprepared, with no intro, and nothing particularly exciting to talk about. We can only go up from here folks! ;)
… and just incase the promise of nothing wasn't exciting enough for you. Here's pictures of the cutest kids in the world to guarantee you'll keep coming back for more.







and last but not least (by any means) Let's do this...
