Celebrating 1 Year of Blogging Awesomeness!

I mean I...I just never range as a, a...guilty pleasure who writes solely about guilty pleasures...I mean, well, I...thank you.

A year into this blog, and I find I’m older, wiser simpler, and just a little closer to embracing my inner chipmunk.

Yes. That’s right. Today is…

My 1-YearΒ Blog-iversary!!!


…Let’s do this:


Someone should alert the Academy.

  1. Oh my GOD! Where do I begin? I’ve never laughed so hard this early in the morning before. This was fantastic. You have some serious skills. I am now afraid to send you my video, it’s pretty pathetic in comparison. My daughter thinks she’s a star now. Both kids cracked up at the chipmunk laugh at the end. Hopefully I can tear them away from watching this another 100 times or so.

    Congratulations on your one year blog-iversary!

    1. Thank you so much, Darla!!! I cannot tell you how many times I saw your daughter’s gorgeous mug in the past 48 hours, and every time it surprised me, “Gahh, she is SO CUTE!!!!”

      I was wondering if people would get to the laugh at the end, ha! That’s fabulous. I saw the sound effect late in the game, and I was like, I MUST ADD THIS.

      I cannot WAIT to see your video and hear you sing!!! I can’t sing, so I’m already impressed!

  2. Fuhgeddaboudit!! That was Hilarious!! Mickey (who still sports his pink slap bracelet when Tim’s not around) was so moved by your acceptance speech and wonders if being featured in your year-in-review video, makes him a pseudo-celebrity… Congrats on your one-year anniversary!

    1. Heee I still can’t get over those pictures, Jen! HE is the star – we’re just in his posse (if we’re lucky…and carrying treats). Thank you SO much!! πŸ™‚

  3. HILARIOUS. You seriously need your own reality TV show. Anything. Just not set in New Jersey. Congrats on the one year blogiversary! Your minions are breathlessly awaiting year 2, as we wave our slap bracelets in the air.

    1. Thanks so much, Renee!!! …Wait, are you saying TV doesn’t need another NJ-based reality show?? (The Jerseylicious salon is pretty close to me, but I don’t think anyone should give me scissors.)

  4. I laughed so hard….congrats on a great year. Shelby was duly impressed to see herself if such an exhibition of talent…and your acceptance speech was, well, priceless.

  5. You big SHOW-OFF. Rubbing it in to the rest of us that you have such crazy, mad, insanely great video skills! I love, love, LOVE your soundtrack. Kept expecting a big shark to show up on screen.

    I’m so happy I hopped on board the Jules Train (not to be confused with the Soul Train, although it does have a good beat and you can dance to it.)Congrats on the blogaversary!! (for realsies)

    1. Thanks, Sarah!! I think I’m supposed to pass along these awards to roughly ten thousand other bloggers – do you have room in your house with the new baby coming?? πŸ˜‰

  6. OhMyGodandJesusAsWell!

    That was the awesomest thing I’ve ever seen. I’m SO glad I didn’t watch the Oscars and watched your video instead. I GUARANTEE yours was better!

  7. Heartwarming, toe tickling, hair raising speech—–I think. Unfortunately I’m in a computer lab where the speakers are disabled and I don’t have any headphones to I had to settle for watching the video without sound for the first 30 seconds.

    But those were pretty good, so…..happy anniversary!

  8. That is some damn fine video-montaging right there. Damn fine. And your speach was better than Meryl’s. Hands down!

    Congrats on your 1 year blogiversary. Hope you have many more to come. You are one funny chica! (I love the slushie in the face part. Brilliant).

  9. I had no idea I was the wind beneath your wings. I feel so unprepared… no speech… no anything! As (one of the people) who helped propel you to the highest points of bloggerdom, I just want to say… You. Are. Welcome. πŸ˜‰ Really though – another great post! Love it!

  10. Can I just say that you are so incredibly adorable I just want to gobble you up? I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Why don’t we live closer to each other???

    1. Aw, Marta, I got this comment on my phone during an all-day meeting and it totally made my day! Thank you!! πŸ™‚ Hopefully this weekend I will have time to get caught up on everyone’s blogs (and work on new posts!)!!

      Well, I think you probably need to come visit the NYC-area one of these days. I mean it only seems logical. πŸ˜‰

  11. this is definitely one of the best things thats happened to me all week. for realsies. I’m off to embrace my inner chipmunk… thanks for a year of fantastic blogging that has lead to what can only be described as a chipmunky enhancement to my life πŸ™‚

  12. Fantastic video, Jules! Loved it.

    However, I didn’t see a disclaimer that “No chipmunks were harmed in the making of this video.”

    Hmm … may need to call the SPCA. hehehe

  13. CONGRATULATIONS!!! Keep those video rolling, hon! My laptop has now survived being sprayed with a mouthful of coffee twice thanks to your fabulous creativity. Who knows, maybe I’ll be buying myself a new laptop/ “congrats gift” on your second blog-iversary. Your blog just keeps on giving, I tell you….
