“Hey Sandy?” Cali asked.

“Yes Cali?” Sandy replied.

“Did you know that this is our 500th post on BABF?” Cali announced.

“Wow, really? We’ve come a long way,” Sandy noted.


“Yeah,” Cali agreed. “We’ve done a lot of cool things. Like BAB Takeover Week and BAB Appreciation Days.

“What about Camp Happy Heart?” Sandy reminded. “Or the 25 Days of Christmas?\”

“How could I forget! Or what about all the trips we’ve been on? Or our new house?”

“Think about the stuff we’ve gotten since we’ve started blogging,” Sandy began. “Like our new camera, or even our new friends, like Mischief, Sparkles and Tye?”

“We’ve done a lot of incredible stuff,” Cali admitted.


“But we’re nowhere near done! We have so much stuff left to do on this here blog.”

“That’s definitely true,” Cali pondered. “Like the 25 Days of Christmas 2020, or Camp Happy Heart 2021.”

“Yeah. Or how about how Diamond wants to do family portraits in January? Or our new profiles. Or the new series about how we all came to live with Diamond?” Sandy mused. “We’ve got a lot of fun stuff planned.”


“Think about our stats! We have 500 posts. We’ve only been doing this for 3 1/2 years! That’s 1,362 days. We have over 3,000 likes, 2,000 comments, 186 followers, and nearly 9,000 views! Last month was our best month for views ever!” Cali ran down.


“Our best month so far,” Sandy corrected. “I have a feeling December is going to top that.”

“Yes, I suppose that’s true!” Cali laughed.


“We’ve had a lot of fantastic viewers and supporters too,” Sandy thought aloud.

“Yes! Like what about Rebekah and Kaelyn? Two awesome bloggers who share the love of stuffed animals,” Cali grinned.

“Yeah, we’ve collaborated with those two a lot,” Sandy agreed. “What about our talented graphic designer friends?”

Cali laughed. “Madison and Liberty aren’t just graphic designers! But the designs they’ve made for us are pretty great.”

McKayla and Sarah have also been really supportive,” Sandy added.

“I don’t think we have time to talk about everyone! There’s been so many wonderful people we’ve met. Both old and new friends!” Cali exclaimed.


“Do you think Diamond would still be doing stuff with us if she wasn’t blogging?” Cali inquired.

“Of course she would! She’s always done stuff with us. She did most of her writing about us while not even blogging!” Sandy replied.

“Sandy?” Cali asked. “Do you think we’ll make it to 1,000 posts?”


“We’ll see,”

Diamond here, I honestly I can’t believe we’ve made it to 500 posts! Thank you so much to everyone who may have helped me on my journey. Here’s to 500 more posts!

  1. WOOO HOOO! 500 posts is a pretty good achievement, Diamond, and definitely one to be proud of. *I’m* proud of you. 🤗 Congrats, girl.
    I love the idea of this post – having Cali and Sandy reminiscing other the past of BABF rather than yourself – it’s adorable.
    Aw, and that shout-out means the world to me. Honestly, I’ve enjoyed every moment of supporting this blog and I cannot wait to see where it goes.
    Once again, congratulations. And keep up the great work!
