2nd Blogiversary

It was 2 years ago that this blog opened! I can't believe it's been two years already! Thank you to everyone who has stopped by and said hello! It's been great fun to share my thoughts on books, food, movies and life with you all!

I toyed with the idea of baking an anniversary cake but I made a cake during the weekend and my mom gave me some this week too so we have been eating lots of sugar and I decided to get just this little cake and put a big candle on top just for the sake of it. But I told L. of my plans and yesterday he came home with a big chocolate cake to help me celebrate.

It's tough to stay thin in this house and I really can't complain because the cake was really good and because he even cooked dinner. We had Prawn Curry and he decided it was an early blogiversary dinner. I think he is starting to think this blogging stuff is fun!

And since this blog is mostly about books and Christmas is around the corner I will give away a Christmas themed book of the ones mentioned below to celebrate this anniversary. Just leave a comment stating which book you would like to have and I'll draw a winner on Nov 30.


  1. Aiiiiii que liiiindo!
    Diz aí ao teu L, sff, que o meu blog faz anos a 20 de Junho, ok?!
    Ele pode cá vir cozinhar à vontade que eu não me iria importar naaaaada!

  2. Estive a dar uma olhada... Vou pelo Regency Christmas Wishes if you don't mind.

  3. Congratulations, Ana! Two years already. Reading your blog is part of my morning ritual, so I hope you'll continue blogging for a looooonnnngggg time, my friend.:)
    L. is a wonderful man! That cake looks so yummi.
    Wow! What a great choice of books.:) Well, even if I read it, I'll go for the Magical Christmas Cat. Thanks for this fabulous giveaway, Ana!

  4. Happy blogiversary Ana!

    I remember when you first started this blog! I don't think you believed us when we told you that it was addictive...but it is!

  5. Congratulations! And what a great anniversary, I'll want one like that when my blog turns... (let me go see...) 4!!!! on July next year :o)
    I'll think about the book as I don't have the time right now and tell you later. Or you can just surprise me in casa I win :op

  6. I'm back, afterall! Could resist ;)
    I choose The Magical Christmas Cat. The others are too historical for me, and I love cats :)
    The receipe one looks great too but I'll meow

  7. Happy Blogiversary! :D Here's to many more!

    The prawn curry looks yummy! I want the recipe, please. :)

  8. Congratulations!! 2 years already? Wow!

    The cake looks fantastic, but so does the curry. I'd love the recipe too, please!

  9. HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY!!!! I can't believe it's already been 2 years! Wow. It does become addicting though, doesn't it?

    The cake and curry look delicious. I'm not much for sweets, but I've been craving them lately, so I bought a bunch of cake mix at the store yesterday. Of course, I'm tempted to just eat the frosting by itself. *g*

    BIG HUGS!!!

  10. That is great - happy anniversary! You sure know how to celebrate! Looks very yummy.

  11. Congratulations on two years and many more to come! Happy anniversary from a big fan!

  12. Thank you all for the visit! Yes blogging is terribly addictive and I had no idea. In the beginning I was afraid I wouldn't have enough material to post about and now it seems I have to much. I'm way behind on my reviews... :-)
