Oh hello. I didn’t see you there.
OK actually, let me start again. THANK YOU for visiting my blog! 🙂 This is my very first post! I feel like I should celebrate with champagne or something, but considering it’s already after 10pm on a Monday night, I might need to take a raincheck on that.
I should probably introduce myself. My name is Erin (and if you’re dying to know more than that, feel free to check out the About page).
I started this blog to be a “lifestyle blog” where I can collect my thoughts and musings about motherhood, family life, raising small kids, doing home improvement projects, and other various activities (you’ll probably see a lot about online shopping…just warning you now!) that make up my wonderful, crazy, chaotic life.
So with that being said, you might be wondering what is up with the title of this blog. I mean, what is so gosh darn “likeable” about me anyhow? #modestmuch? Well the librarian part is hopeful self explanatory, being that I am a librarian (and have the loans to prove it!). The “likeable” part stems from my dad. He always wanted me to be well-rounded (and still continues to want this, I assume), mainly so I could get into a good college.
So the big day finally came, my parents dropped me off at college (go Knights!), and my dad’s only parting words (besides “goodbye”)? “Be likeable.” I’ve never forgot that and I don’t think I ever will (certainly now that I’ve paid for a domain name and whatnot). So that’s the story of the blog name. Hopefully you won’t hold my sarcasm against me, though. 😉
Thanks again for taking the time to read this inaugural post. I’m hoping it’s the first of many!
