I'm in...AT!

"Yesssssss!" [pumps arm enthusiastically in the air]. "I got it!"

Today, ApartmentTherapy:Chicago announced that I earned one of the contributor slots on their ever-insightful blog. The really cool thing is that Sarah also got the job! Hurrah! No hard feelings! Sarah posted for the first time today and I post tomorrow at 11:30am, sharp. I knew about this last week but wanted to keep quiet until it had been officially announced AND until I had drafted a few posts. How embarrassing would that have been if I told all you guys that I got it and then everything designerly fell straight out of my head?

And so for my humble acceptance speech, I would like to thank Porcelain first for allowing me the option (and providing overwhelming support). I thank my mom for the proofreading, AT for giving me the shot, and all my friends, real and bloggy, who made me realize that I can do this (and then got genuinely excited for me when I did). If I wasn't so busy trying to get a handle on my new part-time job, I would so bake some of these for all of you:


Seriously, check out the close-up:

Thanks for the tutorial, Vegan YumYum!

Congratulations! I'm glad both of you got it, because Sarah is my friend (so I'm glad she got it too)!
