Celebrate EVERYTHING: First Link-Up!

It's here!  It's finally here!!
July is my Blogiversary month.
I've seen fabulous giveaways and wonderful collaborations done to celebrate blogiversaries on other blogs and I've always really enjoyed partaking in them and reading about how/why bloggers got started doing what they do, but I wanted to do something different.

So, rather than doing a one-time giveaway, I came up with an idea to celebrate every single month of the year!  And I don't want to be the only one celebrating.  I want each of you to be able to celebrate as well.  Therefore, the CelebrateEVERYTHING link-up has been born.

I have fabulous co-hosts you will want to check out for this first month;
you can see their buttons on my sidebar and they are the first 7 links after mine.
The link-up will run once a month on the last Tuesday of the month so not to compete with any other link-ups (to my knowledge) and it is a place for you to celebrate anything and everything!
Babies, birthdays, craft projects, DIY successes, new friendships, weight loss, overcoming obstacles, fitness goals, work promotions, whatever you have to celebrate in your life, link it here!



The best thing I did this month (other than hearing my baby's heartbeat) is spending 3.5 weeks with my parents and family in the Adirondacks.  It started with 1 week in Myrtle Beach with my hubby and parents.  Then I hopped in the car with mom and dad and drove the 14+ hours from NC to upstate NY. It was a long ride, but it's always worth it.  Just look at this view.  Literally, out my front window.

While there, I got to see family and friends I haven't seen since Christmas.  I got to show off my growing baby bump.  I hiked mountains and ran along the lake which trumps any run I've done in NC #sorrynotsorry.  I celebrated my 10 year high school reunion.  I got to see friends that have been deployed for the last year.  I went camping and got to go to another NASCAR race I had never been to before (seeing the Global Rally Cross was pretty awesome.) 

It was one of those trips that you never want to end.  The only thing was, my hubby and dogs weren't with me.  So, in the end, I was ready to get on a plane and arrive back in Greensboro to be embraced and licked to death.  (Hubby didn't do the licking!)

The day after I got home, I got to hear the baby's heartbeat again and I felt it fluttering inside me for the first time!  I'm telling you, it's magic.  Pure magic.  I can't wait for my hubby to be able to feel the little one moving as well.  We celebrated by going to a new restaurant and hitting up The Comedy Zone.

To say July was great is an understatement.  I have a feeling it only gets better from here.
