Two reasons to celebrate.

So, today is my little blog’s birthday. Second birthday to be exact. Two whole years of blogging. And if that’s not enough of a reason to celebrate, today just happens to be National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day! That’s me! I mean, if those aren’t great reasons to party, I don’t know what is. A birthday and peanut butter!?! Oh and it’s Friday. Boom. In honor of the special occasion, I created an inspiration board that incorporates many aspects of my job (and blogging), peanut butter, and parties. All wrapped up into a black and white color scheme.

While I was totally prepared to talk about me, and my blog, and this past year, I’d rather use today to talk about peanut butter. A topic I’m much more passionate about. You probably know about my love of peanut butter (it’s been well documented on this blog) but here are seven facts about the condiment that you might not have known:

1. Peanut Butter was invented by my hero, George Washington Carver.

2. Peanuts are actually legumes, not nuts.

3. Gus Gus loves peanut butter.

4. 96% of people spread the peanut butter on first when making a PB&J sandwich. Guilty.

5. Despite what jelly would have you think, chocolate is the best pairing with peanut butter. Exhibit A: The Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.

6. Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs are the greatest of the Reese’s Peanut Butter products.

7. It’s pronounced exactly the way it’s spelled. Say it with me people: Reese Pieces. Not Ree-sees Pee-sees. It’s pieces. Show some respect.

I’d like to send a special thanks to Sarah for sharing the news about National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day! Without her I wouldn’t have a good excuse to eat Easter candy all day. I hope you are enjoying your Friday as much as I am! Eat some Peanut Butter too! And happy birthday to Design in Bloom!

    Yay! Happy Birthday to Design in Bloom! AND National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day 😉 I’m eating more of that evil Cadbury mini eggs as I type this. You better celebrate with some champagne or at least with some cava 😉 And I’m assuming #7 is for Maria. Respect ReeRee 😉
