I noticed today that I have 74 followers! You fools! No, I jest. Actually, I'm deeply, deeply grateful and a little excited too. It's kind of cool that someone would read something that I write about my uneventful life and abundant opinions and think, "I'd like to read something else she writes. In fact, I'd like to read it all!"

Wow. I think I would like to break 100 followers this year. Then, I'm going for 30,000. Well, baby steps, baby steps, Jenna. Anyway, think that's possible? How could I do that? What would you like me to say? What would you be interested in reading? Burning questions?

I think I would like to have my best friend guest post on my blog. (Hear that, Amber?) She's incredible in so many ways, but her latest feat of incredible-ness is that in the last year and a half or so she's lost a great deal of weight (like a hundred pounds) and is now sporting bikinis at beaches all across the world. I even caught wind of her plan to start running marathons. Now she's this force of sexiness that can't be stopped, though I don't think anyone's trying. Of course, I thought she was sexy before, no matter her weight, because you know what they say: "Sexy is as sexy does."

Does anyone say that?

What do you think? Would you like to hear Amber's amazing story of self-reinvention? Would you be interested to know how she found the will to get started and how she kept going? Would you like to see a picture of her in a bikini?

Let's ask her.


(she loves to be put on the spot, trust me.)

Here I am in Cancun working ( I SWEAR) but I'm always here for my Jenna. Anything for you but I'll make you pay later ;). It's not nearly as amazing as all the incredible things you juggle and I might add that you do it all very well.

Hey, how about a Parental Guidance warning for the sensitive among us?


Jenna said...

Oh, Dad. Bear with me in life.

I would love to read about Amber's transformation! I noticed the new her on FB, but had no idea how it all happened. Awesome!
