We've hit the big 100! No, I'm not 100 years old and I don't have 100 pet butterflies [although that might be pretty cool].
This is the 100th blog post on The Sprinkles on my Ice Cream Blog!
I'm as happy as this ridiculously cute doggy.
Besides celebrating with ice cream [and yes, I ate it out of the carton], I thought it would nice to do a special post-- one that is long over due.
<Walks up to reader and shakes hand in introductory manner.>
Hello there. My name is Sarah. We've been chatting for a while. You know my name. You've probably figured out that I love ice cream. But other than that, I haven't been the greatest at introducing myself.
When I first started writing this blog, I was worried that if I showed too much of my personality, people wouldn't listen to what I had to say. However, I've learned that authenticity and honesty is more important than being cool [and more fun! You should see how stuffy some of my posts were in the beginning...trying to act all grown up when you're a teen is pretty rough].
For this official introductory post, I could write 100 things about myself, but that seems like a little much. I will spare you the agony [your welcome], and instead do a list of six random facts about Sarah [that you may or may not want to know] since the blog has been up for six months now.
1. I am a Mormon. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I believe that we are literal spirit sons and daughters of God. Because he loves us so much, He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die for us so that we can return to live with Him someday. The gospel is my strength and my foundation. It is the center of my life. I will forever be grateful for the joy it brings to me.
4. I'm not one to follow typical trends. I'm the girl who wears her hair curly, owns orange and yellow pants [and wears them as often as possible], doesn't go to parties, spends a little too much time on homework, and can be found jumping down the stairs instead of walking like a normal person. But I'm okay with that.
6. I once ate an entire pizza by myself. In one day. [This is an accomplishment I am both proud and ashamed of. Mostly proud.]
So there you have it. :) Now, if only we could figure out a way to transfer celebratory chocolate ice cream to you via the internet...
Happy 100 posts! Here's to 100 more.
