Happy Birthday AT!

Happy birthday to you!

Happy birthday to you!

Happy birthday deeeeeeaaaaaaarrrrrrr All Thumbs,

Happy birthday to you!

Well... to us. Because last year at this time, my good friend Lori, started this review blog, and thanks to her fabulous generosity (and probably some mojitos), she welcomed lucky old me to be a part of it. And one year later, we're still here, we're still kicking some product review BUTT, and honestly - we're still really enjoying it. Partly because this site gives us another opportunity to write - which for two dorky gals like us, is ALWAYS a good thing, but partly because we also have this awesome little readership who are loyal to us, who continually come back, and who even chime in when we can do something differently, or they see something we should get instead. That readership is what's allowed us to evolve the way we have:-)

And evolve we did! This past year - it's been an interesting one to say the least. While we both have a lot going on personally (doesn't everyone?!), there's also been a lot going on here at All Thumbs.

We kicked off the site with Lori's hairy legs and adoration for Carmenere, and quickly moved onto my obsession with running, and managing my time in the shower.

We covered books, books, and MORE books; we gave you tips on saving money for both your kids AND yourselves; and we even made sure you'd never EVER have to drink a bad mojito again.

And then... well THEN, we took that turn. That turn into legitimate reviewers who companies actually started to use! Who companies wanted to give stuff to, so we could give it to our fabulous readers! And with those reviews, came giveaway after giveaway after GIVEAWAY! Totalling SEVENTEEN giveaways in the last year alone!

So we here at All Thumbs - we being me and Lori - would like to extend a great big THANK YOU to everyone who has come by in the last year, and an ADVANCED thank you for joining us in the year to come. We promise to keep on writing about the things we like, the things we don't, and to ALWAYS be honest about even the products we get for free. However, we have one small favor to ask of you - our readers.

To make sure All Thumbs KEEPS evolving this year, just like it did last year, we'd like to know what YOU'D like to see more of, what you'd like to see LESS of, and if there's anything in particular you're totally stuck on that you're debating buying but would prefer to have US do the grunt work FOR you. We could try it on, try it out, and let you know what WE think - but only if YOU tell us what it is you need help with.

Want easy access to products recommended by Lori and Chicklet? Help support us by visiting the All Thumbs Store, which has no added markup. Just easy shopping, good prices, Amazon security and thumbs up ratings.

Our bloggy marriage was one of the best things I've ever committed to (top 10, anyway).

Happy birthday, my Canadian partner! Hope to meet you during Year 2.
