Today was the last and final reveal date for Group A’s Secret Recipe Club. It hasn’t come to a close yet, there are still two more groups that will have a reveal but for me, it’s over. I have been with the Secret Recipe Club just over 5 years. My first reveal date was July 18, 2011, just a couple of months after it started. My how far we have come. How far *I* have come. My blog cracks me up from back then.

Included are any orphan rescues I picked up as well.

I was also sad as I went on this mission, to realize how many blogs are now abandoned or not there anymore. Some have moved on to bigger and better blogs but many have abandoned blogging all together.

Well, let’s get started. Let’s look at my SRC journey.

Btw: No judging the photos. haha They are REALLY bad! *cringe* Some of these I wouldn’t even dream of eating based on the photo I took. Time to fix that.

Tina! Tina owns Mom’s Crazy Cooking and I didn’t realize (or remember) that she was my second SRC blog reveal ever. Tina and I have met in person a couple of times and her twin daughter’s went to school a mere 5 minutes from my house  – they are equally as awesome as their mom! The first time I met Tina, we met at a hotel she was staying at and went swimming. I now live across the street from that hotel. Crazy how time changes. Tina I love you dearly and love that we met because of the SRC club! :*
