My 100th post... so. talk to me, peeps.

talk to me, peeps.
I will. I promise. Just not now.

Alas, my 100th post comes with no give-away. Sorry!! Maybe at post 110? or 150?

I meant to. I really did. And, I think it is such a nice idea. AND, I love suckering comments out of people (did I just admit that???). But I just did not get my act in gear.

So, I can no longer delay. Cause I've got stuff to say, peeps.

This is my !!!100th POST!!!

No give-away just yet. But I DO have a plea. Please, for my 100th post birthday gift (haha. I am really pushing it here!!), leave me a comment (details below)! Even if you never have before! I would LOVE to meet you, and love to know if you are visiting my blog.

I am loving blogland. I told my husband that it is helping me to feel articulate again, and to foster intelligability (I think???), at a time in my life when my brain is..... well, used for other things.

Like how to out-wit a 3 year old.
Like how to survive on very little sleep.
Like how to remember to defrost something for dinner.

I must give a shout out to my sweet friend Flamingo. If it was not for her encouragement, I would never have given blogging a try. And it is soo much fun, so good for me, such a fun way to meet fellow Christian women, and a much more practical way for me to scrapbook our family stories.
Sooo, without further babble, I beg you! Please leave me a comment for my 100th post!

You can comment whatever you want, or you can help me to make my blog better by telling me:

1. What you like about my blog, and/or
2. What blogland/techie advice you have that you can give me, and/or
3. What other cool things do you think I should add to my blog layout
or, you can just say "Hi."

Love you blog friends!! You are awesome.
and it is so nice to meet you!

15 friends had a thing or two to say...:

I believe, this may be my first trip here, causing me to do so from your post on Lissa Whittle's blog.

Just yesterday, in a church we were visiting, we were reminded as followers of God...we are's going to be ok.....just read the end of The Book.

Happy 100th blog,you don't look a day over 99 blogs if you ask me ! I am so glad we ran into each other on here. I have so enjoyed getting to know you and not to mention you helping me to get organized on my blog! I love all your fun family talk and your bible studies here. Did you count the blogs, does it tell us when we hit 100?,,,and we have to give gifts at 100? Like if I stop at 99 and start another blog do I get out of giving a gift? teasing! Happy happy 100th!

HAPPY 100th blog!! WOW!

I have to agree with you on the "articulation" and "intelligability" benefits of blogging. Being a mom, although is a wonderful gift can take away some of our brain cells. Blogging our thoughts and ideas and hearing other christians ideas bring back some of the sanity!!

I just love to read your posts--they are always full of passion. Oh the cute pix of your baby boys just warm my heart too!! :)

congrats and have a great day!

I love your blog and I don't comment often because I have really been slacking with commenting....but I'm going to try harder to comment on the blogs I enjoy because I love getting comments! I think your blog is really cute and I love seeing pics of your kids! Happy 100th!

Hi. Congrats on the 100th post.

The one thing I love and couldn't manage without is my bloglist. By having a bloglist, I can see when my favorite blogs are updated so I don't have to continuous check them. You can create a bloglist (not just a list of favorite links) by going to layout, add a gadget, and it is the first option.

Okay, now I'll ready your Yes to God post.

Cindy said...

Congratulations on your 100th post. I am just getting to know you through 'Behind Those Eyes' but have enjoyed visiting and reading.
You have a beautiful family and I love the pictures you have chosen.
No advise from me since I am only on post number 39.
I'm sure I'll be back asking YOU for advise.
Enjoy the next 100.
Bless you, Cindy

This is my first time here and I am the obedient type (NOT) so that is why I am commenting. I plan to stick around for a bit and get to know you. Love the look of your blog and the way you write. I'll be back to visit again.
