FabAve Turns 2

This week Fabulously Average celebrated its 2nd birthday! That’s 200+ outfit posts, 12 recipes (need to up that), and at least 125 sarcastic comments all in one place. That’s a lot of style and a lot of snark! It’s strange to think that I’ve been sharing my life, my style, and my cynicism for the past two years. While there have been days where I was ready to throw in the towel, I’m happy I’ve stuck with it and continued to share the things that I love. This past year was rather difficult for me - what with reaching a plateau in regards to blog growth and the discouraging feelings that come along with that, experiencing the emotional rollercoaster that is pregnancy, and the ongoing frustrations I’ve had and expressed about my work life - it’s been a rough one. But with the constant encouragement from readers, family, and friends I’m getting through it and feel like I will come out stronger on the other side.

After attending the Arizona Blogger Conference I’m excited for the new direction and the new confidence I have for both this blog and my life. I’m about to experience such an exciting (and stressful) time but I’m ready for it wholeheartedly. I feel like I have so much more to offer y’all and I’m eager for what this next year has in store. It’s like I’ve turned a corner and I’m ready to express and tell my story.

Fabulously Average is a lifelong evolution and I sense that my voice will be shifting with the changes that are about to take place in my life. This will continue to be a place where the average girl with the everyday budget can come and get inspiredthat will never change – but FabAve will naturally be changing as I become a mother. I hope that you continue to come here to hear my stories, to watch my life and style evolve, and grow with me. 

You’ve all become an extended family and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I cannot express how grateful I am for your continuous support and how special you make me feel on a daily basis. Here’s to another year of living a fabulously average life! Thank you! Gracias! Dankeschön!

Currently Craving: Birthday Wishlist

With my birthday a mere week away (what?) I thought I would share some of the things that I’m currently lusting over. You might notice that I have a thing for accessories right now. It might have something to do with the fact that I refuse to try on clothing, but that’s neither here nor there. If only I weren’t on a shopping ban, I would buy myself each and every item above. If only…

It’s My Party and I’ll Wear What I Want To!

Welcome back my loves! If you’re new ‘round these parts, thanks for stopping by! Now sit down and stay awhile. I wore this ensemble to my Cinco de Mayo/birthday party this past weekend. Since everyone was forcibly coming together to celebrate my existence, I wanted to look mildly special without looking like I tried too hard. This linen dress is a recent purchase from H&M and when I saw it I knew it would be a wonderful addition to my summer whites collection. From there I worked in accents of red, for a festive flair, and added a statement necklace to finish the look.

My Weekend in Photos: Birthday Party

Yesterday I celebrated my 27th birthday (today is officially my birthday!). Last year the fella and I did our own thing and went to Vegas for a couple days, so this year I wanted to spend it with friends. We still don’t know many people here in AZ but we both have gotten to know co-workers at our respective jobs, so we had ourselves a pretty good guest list. With our backyard finally complete we thought what better way to debut the finishing product than to have a Cinco de Mayo/birthday party. And that’s exactly what we did!

If you follow me on Instagram (joannealma), then you’ve already seen these pics. But if you don’t (which you should), here are some snapshots from the soirée, complete with sombreros, margaritas and homemade quesadillas. A great time was had by all and as the birthday girl I couldn’t have asked for more. Stay tuned later on this week for a breakdown of my birthday outfit!
