#40 – Becoming a blogger

Posted by Megan on February 24th, 2012

It was a big year for me. One of my favorite parts of my quest to do 40 new things, was how enthusiastically supportive my friends, colleagues, and even strangers were to share their passions with me.

Large and small – I accomplished a lot this year!

I’ve finally completed my fortieth quest – to write a blog. Thanks for joining me on this journey. I’ve enjoyed every single step.

So stay tuned, I’m ready and waiting for my next adventure and I can’t wait to share it with you.

Some of my favorite buddies helped me celebrate the big three-o at my Big Bouncie Birthday Party at Skyzone.


And I ate this:


Why yes - that is a donut cake!


I picked the one with the most sprinkles. Duh!


And I drank this:


Yum, liquid carbs!


When I got home I was greeted by this:



And when I woke up the next day – I did not feel old, I didn’t have a mental breakdown, I didn’t shed one tear because after all – I have set the stage for a pretty awesome forth decade.
