A Thank You Gift From Me To You

Do you guys know what today is?

screenshot-001

That’s right…Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life officially turned TWO today!

And I clearly had a little extra time on my hands this afternoon. Winking smile

I still can’t believe that it’s been two since I sat down and officially decided to write the first post “welcoming” myself into the blog world.

It’s pretty comical (and a little scary) to go back and read some of my older posts. I get to watch just how much the blog has evolved, and I love that because it helps me see how much things have changed…my writing style has changed, my photos have improved, and my extreme overuse of exclamation marks and smiley faces has been significantly reduced. Well, depending on the day.

I have quite a few favorite posts, but I also have a feeling that there are posts hidden throughout these two years that I’ve totally forgotten about (including this one that I just stumbled across). One of these days, I’m going to have to go through ALL of em…yeah, one of these days.

The blog itself has also gone through some changes, and I’d be willing to bet that there aren’t too many of you who would remember when things looked like this:

Blog Phase 1

Then about seven months later, STSL got a bit of a facelift.

Blog Phase 2

And now, here we are.

Blog Phase 3

But over these past two years, the blog isn’t the only thing that’s gone through some changes…my life has gone through a number of changes, and I’m so incredibly thankful for the fact that I have it all documented to look back on.

When I first started this blog, I had no idea if it was going to last or if it was just going to be another thing that seemed “cool” at the moment and then gradually fall to the wayside. But throughout all of the other things that may have fallen to the wayside over these past two years (hello, teaching career), the blog is one thing that has remained constant.

It’s given me a place to share a voice that I may not have otherwise had, it’s allowed me to vent when I need to, it’s presented me with a number of great opportunities, and most importantly, it’s given me the courage and strength to truly follow my heart and lead my life down a brand new path.

And for that, I will be forever grateful…which also includes each and every one of you.

Thank you so much for reading along with me for these past two years. Thank you for your support when times were challenging. Thank you me listening to me ramble day in and day out. I know this blog world has millions of blogs that you could be reading, but the fact that you take the time out of your day to read my little corner of blog world truly makes my day, and I am so happy to have all of you as my readers.

If I could, I would send each and every one of you a “Thank You Cupcake,” but since I can’t do that ruining the best part (the frosting, duh!), I’m going to go ahead and do this instead…

I’m going to give away two $25.00 gift certificates to Spa Finder (because who couldn’t use a little extra pampering every now and then, right?).

To enter, just leave a comment in the comment section of this post about anything you’d like (just keep it friendly and positive, pleeeease!) and I’ll choose the winners on Tuesday, April 10th.

Think of it as a little thank you gift from me (and maybe to you!) for your wonderful support and readership. Because honestly, I wouldn’t be here without all of you. Smile

    Happy Birthday Sweet Tooth Sweet Life. I love your chocolate raspberry bars, and they are always a hit at the office.

  2. Kattreena says

    Congratulations on turning 2! I’ve been reading your blog for about a month now! It keeps getting better! I love your recipes and workouts!! :) keep up your awesome blogging! :)

  3. Kalyn says

    Courtney, I have been reading your blog for about a year and a half now. Though I do not consistently comment, I thoroughly enjoying visiting STSL. I love your honesty, sincerity, and I’m especially loving all the fitness ideas you’ve been incorporating lately. I have wanted to start lifting for awhile now, but I had no idea where to start. Basing my workouts off of some of the ones you have posted has boosted my lifting confidence in the gym. Keep up the good work, and here’s to many more successful years blogging!

  4. amanda says

    I tried kettleballs for the first time this week at the hotel gym! Is it just me or are they just way more fun than regular weights?

  5. Alli says

    Happy 2nd Birthday! Wow, I’ve been reading since before your blog got the facelift, but I can’t believe it’s been that long! Can’t wait to keep reading! A spa day sounds wonderful, especially since I’ve been having major tension migraines recently. Even if I don’t win, I’ll continue reading!

I relate to you about your decision to leave the field of teaching…and appreciate the fact that you share many aspects of your life with your readers. I love how you advocate healthy eating, but emphasize everything in moderation. I have been eating 80/20 for the past three months and have lost about 10 pounds and a significant amount of body fat! My clothes are getting looser and looser. Woo Hoo! Keep on keeping on, Courtney! :-D

You guys have taught me that I don’t have to do an hour of cardio and eat salads to feel good about my body but the best way to feel good about it is to live a balanced life! Balanced in every aspect :D Happy 2nd Birthday, SweetToothSweetLife!

  41. Julissa says

  54. Alyssa says

    Congratulations on going at it for two years!! You are truly an inspiration when it comes to health and life :)

  55. Allyson says

    Your blog was one of the first healthy living blogs I began to read about a year ago now when I began to change my eating and exercising habits. Even though I do not know you (or any of the bloggers i follow lol) I feel like your blog has inspired me greatly and helped me with my journey of losing 30 lb and adopting a much healthier lifestyle! So, THANK YOU STSL! :)

  56. kristen @ livinlifeinlouie says

  63. Valery R says

    Courtney, I literally check your blog about 10 times a day to see if you have a new post… It’s right up in my bookmarks! I’ve been reading for about 1 1/2 years… I feel like I know you! I love your blog, keep up with the good work! :)

    p.s. Your cupcakes are AMAZING. Definitely think you should open up a bakery. Then again, that might not go so well with the personal training ;)

    Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY STSL!

    Thanks for always making your blog posts so fun and interesting to read! I never miss a post!

  66. Erin says

    I’ve been reading since about this time last year, but I feel like I’ve read a ton of other posts on your blog from before I was a “regular!” Yours was the first healthy living blog I stumbled upon, so I spent a ton of time looking around! And I LOVE seeing what you’re up to everyday! Thank you SO MUCH, and Happy 2nd Birthday to STSL!

  67. Sarah J. says

    I have been reading your blog for the last couple of months…I stumbled upon it while searching through other blogs. Your blog has become one of my absolute favorites! I find myself checking it multiple times a day and being disappointed when a new post isn’t up yet..kinda pathetic actually haha. I am currently searching for a teaching position and get so frustrated at times. Your blog has helped calm my nerves because I know if teaching doesn’t work out, it means I was meant to do something else. Thanks for being real and encouraging others to go for their dreams!

  68. Lauren B. says

    All of your sweets recipes keep me drooling! Here’s to many more years to come for you! Cheers!

  73. daybelis says

    Happy 2nd birthday Courtney! I have been reading your blog ever since you began the renovations lol and I have to say I love your blog very much. As a recovered anorexic it is hard to follow blogs that trigger negative ed behaviors, and your blog is just the opposite, You are such a down to earth person and show that there can be balance in life while being healthy at the same time. Thank you for everything, you are an inspiration !

  80. Courtney says

    Happy Birthday STSL!! Your blog is my favorite and it’s the first one I check every morning at work. I love your honesty and your fun spirit!!

  81. says

    Happy Blogiversary! You must be so proud of yourself! I love looking back and seeing how my blog has evolved, but the best part is getting to look back and have a record of your life (because really who has time to keep a journal these days?) I’m sure you’ll have many more years of happy blogging :)

  82. Crystal says

    Happy Birthday! I’ve been reading everyday for over a year. You make me laugh and always have turned me on to products that I couldn’t live without now.

  83. says

    Happy Birthday STSL! I know, I know, a day late to congratulate but I tried on my iPod but it wouldn’t change my URL. What a pain. :(

    It’s only been a few months since I started reading but I love this blog. It’s different from any blog that I read- and from the one that I write about. Yours is one where you document your life through the meals you eat, your job as a personal trainer, nights out with friends, weddings, baking, etc. I’d never have the guts to do what you do- mostly because I respect my privacy. I could never just start taking pictures of what I do on a day to day basis- mostly because I’m in school M-F all day. I’d get in trouble if I decided to take pictures during class for a blog. ;)

    I can’t believe it’s been 2 years- I hope many more years are in the future for STSL.

    Congrats on 2 years of blogging !! Yours was the FIRST blog that I started reading on a regular basis (there were a few others I checked here and there but not something even semi-regularly) and I’m so grateful :D I read your guest post on pumpkin spice cupcakes on Tina’s blog and promptly made them the same week for my co-workers. I didn’t know it at the time, but that was a life changing thing for me. Slowly over time, I started taking care of myself better. I started loving healthy living and making it more important in my life, thank you so so soo much !

  137. Nicole says

    Happy Anniversary! It would be awesome if you could look up who your “faithful followers” have been for the two years STSL has been in existence! I know I’ve been following you for not quite a year and I must say, I do look forward to your e-mail popping up in my Inbox each morning.

    Cheers to you and many more years of blogging!

    P.S. Give Cody some lovin’ from me! He’s a cutie pie!

  138. says

    Happy Belated Birthday Courtney. I’ve been a subscriber for almost a year now, I think…but I like that you’re easy to relate to, you talk about your “bad” days, and you share with us the times of your life you like to celebrate. Your recipes include healthy options, but you also throw in some non healthy “stuff” for the men in our lives :) thank you!

    What an accomplishment on making it 2 years! (…my attempt at blogging was VERY short lived! haha) I’ve enjoy your workout posts, they inspire me. :)

  151. says

    I stumbled upon your blog a year and a half ago when I was searching for advice on working out with asthma, and I have been an avid reader ever since. Within that time your positivity and love of working out (which I was never a fan of) has helped me lose 30 lbs and has gotten me to try many foods I never would have before. Thank you for taking the time to share some insight into you’re life as well as the everyday struggles we all go through but never want to talk about. Congrats on 2 years!

  152. Vanessa says

    Your blog rocks. It’s super fun to read, and I love checking out the workouts you post! Congrats to you–I wish you nothing but success in the future–both with the blog AND your new career! :)

    Thanks so much for having such a wonderful blog! Your balanced attitude is so refreshing, especially because I’m in college and I try to eat whole, nutritious foods, but you help me not sweat the small stuff when I’m enjoying pizza at 2 am ;)
