Hello friends! Today, Takeover Week is temporarily canceled for a very special reason. It’s the two year anniversary of the day I started this blog! I’m so grateful I did and for all the good blogging has brought to my life.

Did I ever think I would still be blogging here two years later with plans to blog indefinitely? No, I’d never even stuck with a blog for a full year before. (I had two other blogs) I simply started this blog as a side blog. I figured, hey, why not make a post every month or so? Little did I know I would be here two years later, still loving Build a Bears.

“Hey guys! I love to share my tasty creations with you!” – Berry

“We love blogging because we can share our awesomeness with the world!” – Treasure and Twilight

“I really like being able to make posts! Yaysys!” – Summer

“My name is wicket. I love to blog because I love to blog. hee hee.” – Wicket

We have a lot of fun stuff planned! After Takeover Week, there should be a fun photostory where Cloud takes a drive(?!?!), A St. Patrick’s Day post featuring Emma, A photostory featuring Baymax, Uses for a Cub Condo, A couple trip recaps, A tour/diy(maybe?) of our BAB area that I would like to work on, American Girl posts(coming this fall!) and finally, our Secret Summer Project! Also, I’m going to try to update the meet the BABs page soon.

  1. Happy anniversary! congratulations on all your views, and followers! I don’t even know when I started by blog. I think it was sometime in May. But I didn’t actually post on it. I actually started posting some time in December.

    P.S. Love your blog❤️
