Celebrating 100 Blog Posts!

I’ve been blogging since 2009 on this site, but really started posting regularly last year. This blog began as a way to talk about parenting, volunteering, being a working mom, and ADHD. I use a lot of sarcastic wit, humor and always try to speak plainly. The past year I’ve focused mainly on the ‘working mom’ aspect and my role as a Salesforce Administrator. I still weave posts about my kids in, and throw in the occasional parody song or Haiku. This blog is really just a great therapeutic way for me to verbalize what is important in my life. If I make you laugh, awesome! If I help you learn something, fantastic! If I make you think about something you wouldn’t have otherwise, perfect!

For my 100th Blog Post, I’ve spent some time deciding what to post. Stats about how my blog has evolved over the years? Just a simple giant 100 image with confetti? Nah! I thought I would take this time to put into writing 100 super awesome things to celebrate! So here you go:
