Happy Birthday!

Happy 1st birthday to Marlie and Me!

I didn't forget.

I planned a whole week's worth of celebratory posts...in my head.

But instead of writing those posts while Marlie took her naps, I have been...

CLEANING!!! Say it with me...UGH!

I have been scrubbing the house top-to-bottom in two-hour increments these last two weeks to remove several months worth of built up dust, cobwebs, and grime from every nook and cranny.

It was gross. I'm not going to win any housekeeping awards. Martha Stewart can erase my name from her contact list.

But now the house is sparkling clean and ready for Marlie's birthday party today. Why go through all that trouble, you ask? The answer is simple: pride. Just because I am no longer trying to be SuperMom, doesn't mean I shouldn't give the impression that I am. The party guests are going to be awestruck as they sit in my immaculate home while wondering to themselves,
How does she do it?

Who am I to burst their bubble? :-)

Now for some presents!

All current and new subscribers are eligible to enter a drawing to receive a $25 iTunes Gift Card by simply leaving a comment here wishing Marlie and Me a Happy Blogversary. The most creative comment will win the prize (no randomizing this go round because I'm providing the gift card)! The judge will be none other than my husband Damon, you can suck up to him if you can find his email address.

Update: I didn't include an end date: Sept 20. 2010.

*This is a self-sponsored giveaway..hear that FTC!*

Hey, I get to be first to comment! Yeah! Happy Birthday! I thought about getting real creative and reminding Damon who thought they should make a pinup calendar with good-looking guys like him doing housework - talk about eye candy for us gals. Then, I realized that maybe he might like women objectifying him like that. So I won't mention it. I'll just wish you a happy blogoversary!!!!

I can't believe it has been a year already! Where does time go?

You have just totally burst my bubble because I thought you were Martha Stewart's right hand woman. You don't clean every day since you're home with nothing to do except play with a child? LOL LOL LOL

Well, CONGRATULATIONS on a very productive year with baby and blog growing.


Here goes the only creativity I ever have on birthdays.

♪♫ Happy blogaversary to you!
Happy blogaversary to you!
Happy blogaversary dear Marlie and Me!

And here is my gift:

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Marlie is sweet,
And so are you!

There once was a team called Marlie and Me.
One is a charming, adorable little girl,
The other her Mama, a sweet pearl.
A blog, they created for all to enjoy
New products, giveaways and advice, oh boy!

Happy Blogversary!

Happy Happy Blogversary! I don't have anything creative to say because I'm too mad that you get two hour naps from your little one. So I'm just going to sit here and pout :)

Hey, I just started a new eco-friendly/organic giveaway linky on my blog. If you have anything that fits the bill, feel free to post it there and spread the word!

Tammylyne said...

A year's gone by,
How time has flown,
who could believe
How your blog has grown!

Today is your day, and you're wished the best,
I hope you celebrate it, with a lot of zest

So let the drums roll and horns toot,
I hope my wishes for you,
will bring me home the loot!
