My 100th Post!


I never thought I'd get here but today is my 100th post! Am I prepared? No, of course not. In fact, the last few days my internet connection at home was down and someone finally came out today to fix it. I begged and pleaded with them to come earlier because I had to update my blog, that I was going through blog withdrawals at home! They didn't care. It was pretty sad. I would sit at home arms length from my laptop and just stare at it. Just stared at my walls, wondering what to do. I'd flip through a magazine, turn the TV on, ho, hum, ho, hum...play with the cats. Play with the cats some more...and more...and more. Then the cats got tired of me. Then they called Qwest and begged that they come out and get my internet connection up because I was driving them crazy.

Then FINALLY, I'm up again and I get to post my 100th post! I am going to do a giveaway this week but haven't prepared for it. Dang that 100 came up quick. Probably because I post almost everyday (because I have no life). ;)
Most importantly, I'd like to thank each and every one of you (should I be holding some sort of Oscar?) for coming into my life and making my blogging experience so fulfilling! I never thought my whole world would change like this. I never thought I could cook, create, write, become little Suzy Miss Homemaker until I met all of you! You have inspired me to turn into this creative junkie. I mean I knew I had it in me I just needed inspiration to get it outta me! I am happier these days because of you. In fact, aw heck, you complete me. Okay, enough! THANK YOU, THANK YOU everyone! I hope we all continue to inspire one another for a very long time.
This week I will post my GIVEAWAY! It will be my first and I'm so excited!!
Hope you're all having a great weekend! Lots of hugs!

Michelle,

You make me laugh. Reading your post reminded me of that famous line Sally Field gave when she won an Oscar. You know the line that goes like, "You really like me".

You know what, we all really do like you. Heck, we all love and adore you.

I'm so glad you created your blog.

Love Melissa

Congrats on your 100th post you sexy girl! Your blog is one I visit every day! And I will have to go visit your sister and niece's too.

And happy happy birthday to your beautiful niece PARIS! She is so pretty. Reminds me of my Gracie at that age...she had long light brown hair just like that with the sweetest face. She always reminded me of the little girl in Braveheart whom gives William the thistle flower. YOur Paris reminds me of her too. Love that name, so romantic.

Hi! Congrats on your 100th Post!! I'm with you- I never knew this cyberstuff would become so important to me and I can totally sympathize with you about the internet problem! Too bad the internet guy didn't "get it"- he's obviously NOT a blogger. I love your blog- it is loaded with so much creativity and inspiration!
