100th Post Giveaway!

Somehow 100 posts have come and gone. I can't believe I have had enough stories and ideas to write over 100 posts, but it has been such an enjoyable journey. A few things I have learned along the way...
  • My computer savvy grandmother loves this blog even more than I do. (Grandma I'm talking about you! Everyone tells me you LOVE my blog, and we LOVE you from 9 hours away!)

  • I have found that blogging can be a great outlet and a great way to share family stories. It is a digital journal of sorts.

  • It is also a constant stream of creative and inspiring ideas.

  • What a wonderful network for a mom of 2 little rough and rowdy boys.

  • A place to find others going through the same day to day issues that I am. Makes me realize I am never alone in the quest to be the best version of myself.

  • Most of all, it has been a place to meet all of the BFF's that I would have in real life if they would all just relocate to SC, hint hint!

While I realize this blog is always a hodge podge of family stories, crafting, and decorating, I really appreciate all the people that read it and share in this journey with me. You all have become an endless source of joy for me and sounding boards for so many things. SO... without further adieu...

I am gonna give away ONE of the following of your choosing:

A Sock Monkey, pillow, apron, or tassel. Everyone's colors are different so I will make it personalized for you according to the specs you give me. You have until Friday @ 9am to leave me a comment and then my random number generator ( the boys will pull a winner from a hat) will pick a winner. I may also include a bonus goody or two, but those will just have to be a surprise. Good luck and I look forward to seeing who wins!

You made it to 100 super fast girl friend! So proud of you and your blog is fantastic! You do such a good job and are so creative...definitly a good outlet for you. Jack wanted me to tell you that if I don't win, which is probably a good chance, that he wants me to send you fabric to make him a sock monkey. He still wants one... :)

Hey Mandi! Thanks for stopping by this morning!

To answer your question, MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers. It's an international Christian organization to support mothers of preschoolers. We have guest speakers, crafts (that's what I lead in our group), lots of eating, socializing and mentor mothers to help encouarge us. It's a wonderful outreach ministry also! I have met so many of my friends through MOPS and I can't say enough wonderful things about it. If you go to www.mops.org you can get a ton more info and search for a group near you. (Top left sidebar, Groups > Find a local group) Most groups meet during the school year and have the summer off. Let me know if you want to know more! I bet you'd have a blast in a MOPS group...and they'd surely LOVE to have your crafty self helping with the creative activities. :)

Hey Girl...I tried to post this the other day, ut I don't know what happened! Congrats on your
100th post! I can't believe you have already hit that milestone. Eventhough I talk to you several times a day and see you throughout the week, I really enjoy reading about the NETTLES family. Also, it is nice to know I am not alone in my crazy life-you are just brave to post yours via blog!
PICK ME TO WIN!!!!
