Little did I know, when I set out to share the nitty gritty of our life, that there were TONS of you out there, most doing this so much better than I could ever hope to. Which made me question more than once why I was doing this. I decided (and I need to remind myself of this frequently) that this is for me. If other people come and read and can commiserate/laugh/whatever with me, that's a bonus. I've never been a journal writer, my attempt at keeping books for the kids lasted all of 18 months I think. But I like this format, and it gives me a place to stick some pictures and write down all the funny/annoying/frustrating/happy/fantastic moments of my family's life together. I am thrilled that you take the time to read it and maybe leave a comment.
So - to thank you, my friends, I have a little giveaway for you to celebrate my 100th post today. Just a few little things that I've run across that I love and would like to share. We have:
- a fantastic canvas tote from Tar-jay. This is identical to the one I haul my 'swim team practice entertain the kiddies stuff' in, and I love it! Now you can too!
- a pretty tin plaque to hang in your home & remind you of me :)
- The Firm's Power Yoga DVD. It's less of a yoga 'ooohhmm' type DVD and more of a fantastic 30 minute stretching/toning DVD. I did this for the first 6 months of my pregnancy with Sarah and felt FANTASTIC. If your sciatic nerve hurts, you NEED this. I love it. My sisters love it. Matt has been known to do it on occasion. It's tested and approved of. You new Moms out there will LOVE this DVD because it will help tone those muscles but it doesn't take a lot of time and you won't get all sweaty doing it. 'nuff said.
- a Starbucks gift card (did I mention I love coffee?)
- Black Forest Gummy Bears (I'd send chocolate, but was afraid it would get all 'melty')
- Real Simple and Do It Yourself magazines. I thought these looked pretty interesting, maybe you will too.
- Be a follower of my blog. Each follower gets 1 entry.
- Leave me a comment on this post. This will get you 1 entry. If you aren't a blogger and/or don't have your email account linked to your profile, make sure you tell me how to find you!
- Mention my giveaway on your blog. This will get you 2 entries ;) Please be sure to come back and tell me you did so!
