The Blogger Who Didn't Have Internet.

So, in the past few days... my blog has taken off like a G6 (I literally just learned on Friday that a G6 is a fancy airplane, and NOT a Pontiac... which makes sense because to be "fly" like a car is so silly, while being fly like an airplane makes ABSOLUTELY PERFECT SENSE). Anyways, I used a little tool called "Twitter" to send my blog out to a few worthy sources. Primarily, @InStyle, as in InStyle magazine. As in the magazine I've been reading since I was in the 6th grade and the magazine I use to come up with new outfit ideas. InStyle went ahead and re-tweeted my blog link... for those who aren't familiar with Twitter this means they sent the link out to their 1.8 MILLION followers. SO Friday was a HUGEY HUGE day for this girl. I got more hits in one day that I typically get in a month. I was contacted by a few e-magazines and blogs to write editorials (huge). I realized I could totally make something of this blog and utilize it to help me and my writing career. Needless to say, I'm so excited to write a ton, keep all of you new followers entertained, and make all of you old followers proud.

Here comes the prob: I def don't have internet at home. I had to make a few adjustments within my budget, and for the next two months, I have no internet. None. SO STUPID. So until then... I am an "internet cafe" kind of girl. The last two posts were so kindly typed at Java. Tonight- the Caramel Apple Spice from Starbucks lured me in. And while we're talking Starbucks, I'd like to file my FORMAL COMPLAINT about this year's red cups. They are ugly, only partially red, and have terrible graphics on them. I sort of feel like Christmas is ruined because of these cups. Word on the street is Tully's went with  plaid cups- so clearly I'll be there tomorrow. Anyways, cups or no cups- I am going to do my very best to keep this blog current, entertaining, and stylish. I have a ton of new comments and a ton of new ideas--- so there is a LOT to come. 

Please--- keep the comments coming. I have gotten so many fresh ideas from you guys! And it helps me to know you're out there. Going from having only my Facebook circle read my posts- to about 1000 strangers? It has literally given me so much drive I can hardly think. In fact, I feel like this post sucks because I feel the pressure... or maybe it is just the anxiety from the gross red cups. Who knows.

I appreciate your need to be fashionable, even down to your disposable coffee cup. Ha!! I will totally hit up Tully's with you. Not only do they offer cute cups, but I once had a lemon poppyseed muffin top there and NO IT WAS NOT my imagination (even though I've never seen them there since).
