Guess Whoooo's 100? (It's the Mother of All Giveaways!)

(Update! Comments are now closed for the Monster Giveaway! Thank you for participating!)

Whooo's 100?

I am! This is my 100th post!

To say I am astonished and humbled by the incredible support of my blog from fellow bloggers, friends and family would be an ginormous understatement! I am truly, deeply grateful that ya’ll stop by and visit me! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

(I had this scheduled to post at midnight, but for some reason, it didn't! I got up to check it about 1:30 am and discovered blogger's mischief! Sorry if you came by then!)

All righty then…do you have a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea, martini? How about a masseuse? You’re gonna need it! It’s my 100th post and by the time you are done reading it, you’ll probably feel as old and tired as Rip Van Winkle! You know me and my long winded rambley-ness! (....the giveaway is here..I promise!)

So, this is what I’ve come to know about blogging in the last 100 days….

Blogging is like taking a vacation to a place you never knew existed, but once you arrive, you never want to leave. There’s a new language, customs of the natives to learn, and amazing treasures to discover! (who can resist all of those cupcake blogs!?) Inspiration and creativity abound in the Land of Blog!

I love getting my words on a page to share with others. I decided to blog to honor that creative part in me that no longer wanted to be silent. I wanted to set an example for my kids to follow their dreams. In order to do that, I needed to start following my own.

I recently shared with a very sweet bloggy friend that each morning, I love to grab my coffee, power up my computer and begin my travels through the blogs to visit old friends and meet new ones along the way. For me, blogging is about connecting with others as much as writing now. (although with this stupid limited gigabyte deal with Verizon, my comment love to you all is not what I want it to be…boo hiss boo…)

I also shared with this same friend that not so long ago I was feeling very overwhelmed coming to terms with the reality that my kids will probably lose their father to his illness while they are still very young. Normally, I’m a pretty upbeat girl, but I was starting to feel really depressed. I started to cry…you know, one of those big ugly cries. My darling daughter asked me why I was sad. I hugged her close, but was unable to speak. She cupped my face in her 6 yr old hands and said, "You should go make people laugh on your blog, Mommy. Laughing always makes me feel better."

I was amazed. She continued, "Remember when we took our wagon to the park for that little girl who lives in Heaven? I bet she was happy her mom had a blog to tell everyone to take their wagons to the park." In that moment, the grace of God came through my daughter and poured into my heart.

I suddenly realized blogging provides a place for a voice no matter how small to be heard. It's a place to share our joyful times, our a-ha moments. Voices that are sad, afraid, lonely also have a place in this land of Blog. It's a place to gather support and feel helpful when things seem helpless. As I shared with my friend, I may not have thousands of dollars to donate to a cause, but I can write about it. Maybe my words will reach someone who can.

I have met the most amazing, creative and awe-inspiring people during my short bloggy life! I LOVE you all!!!

(If you’re new here, I am normally pretty ornery, but since I’m 100 today I am a bit reflective. Old age does that to you. Ornery-ness will re-commence tomorrow!

And now…..drumroll please…..to show you how grateful I am, I am hosting a MONSTER giveaway! I will be breaking up the giveaway into lots of groups of goodies so you have lots of opportunities to win!

And away we go!!! Remember, it’s HUGE and I LOVE owls!!! You’ll probably notice some old blog post themes too!

It looks like your blog might let me post again! Oh, you know how remarkable that is!

Uh, do you know how bitter I am that there are too many things that I want here? I'd better win something! Owls have a special place in my heart too because of my grandmother, who raised me.

B said...

Oh, and I think we discussed this mental bit already, I follow, but my blog is totally embarrassed of me and won't let me follow a single person publicly. Am I really that shameful?

The Dotterel said...

Fantastic! Well done on reaching the milestone, and what a giveaway! (I'd better keep the details from my owl-mad daughter!)

MaryCatherine said...

Sass said...

I don't know why, and it probably makes me a freak, but I LOVE those kiss shaped bandages. Seriously.

How fab would my daughter's boo-boo's look?

And you know what? It's okay to not be ornery every day.

You just gotta be honest, real, and true to yourself. Which you are. ;)

Congrats to you.

Oh, and Wednesday I'm having a giveaway for my 200th post. I'm just sayin'.

Oh, by the way, I am Cygnus, and I'd like the rubber duckie, please, because I sense he may be my long-lost duckling twin...

Michelle said...

Ok, first you made me almost cry -- although I held the tears in -- and then you cheered me up.

I gotta say you've got some way cool prizes. I love the band-aids. And the bubble bath. And the necklace. And the doll. And the game. And really do you need me to go on? ;)

Michelle said...

Jennifer said...

OMG Lady--what a giveaway!! I really like ALL the stuff--but I think I like the cool devil children silhouettes and the little broom the best.

Thank you for the chance and Happy 100 Posts!!!

Wendyburd1 said...

Are you kidding me? I would love to win any of these RAD prizes. I loved the "a place for a voice no matter how small to be heard" paragraph. It really affected me, especially with the grief some people are giving me for having my blog. Thank you.

hmmmm the rosebud salve but WOWZA this is serious!! It would be like winning the lotto but better because you don't have the hassle of all your friends and family trying to borrow a buck. :)

dizzblnd said...

Congrats on your 100th! I am not commenting to win, I just stopped by via Lana's blog and told her I would check you out. So no entries for me please, I promised her I wouldn't ruin her chances to win.

I DO want to say though, that your daughter is a beautiful soul.. wise beyond her years and you are lucky to have her (duh you know that) her words made me cry.

Congrats again!

Bobby G said...

Hello! I'm Bobby G! I got your Site From Kats and you seem humorous! You also seem like you wanted to have a garage sale but didn't, so now you got a shit ton of stuff that you need to get rid of so you made a blog contest! Fantastic Idea! I dont have any need for your items, but I will still follow you and look forward to the rest of your posts! Also How the hell do you have so many followers? Anyways my site is www.bobbygspot.org Enjoy!

Jenners said...

First of all, congrats on 100 posts. Mine is on Friday but I'm not doing anything nearly as amazing as you.

Second, I love what you wrote about the Land of Blog. It is so true. I feel the same way. And I think you are so awesome.

Third, Holy Crap! What a monster giveaway. I will FOR SURE blog about it -- in fact, I will put it in my 100th post on Friday. My crappy, measly prizeless 100th post.

Fourth, how much do I want everything ... but my favorites are the ducks, the band-aids, the #8 housewife package, #10 birthday party game, #11, #12, #13... too hard to pick! oh...and Vera Bradley too.

You are going to get SWAMPED with stuff for this! Have fun! And you can be sure I'll be leaving another comment to tell you I'm a follower.

Jenners said...

Holy gianormous moly! lol You've added a few things since my last visit! Thanks for the comment and reminder by the way!
Everything is fabulous but I especially love the birthday party book, love that rosebud salve (I use to use that but it's hard to find!) and I know my boys would love those ugly dolls! lol
Besides all that, your post was incredibly moving. I love that you shared what blogging means to you and how it has impacted you and my, what a beautiful heart you have. :) Your children are so blessed to have such an amazing mommy and daddy...your daughter is so wise and tender-hearted. :)
I was cracking up over the whole hooters thing, seriously that picture left me speechless! lol
You (and your husband) have blessed those children with an amazing sense of humor!! :)
Have a great rest of the week and a great Easter holiday!
