100th Post and a GIVEAWAY

I was brainstorming on what I wanted to say for my 100th post.
I considered '100 Things I Love'.
But who would actually read it, or care?
Then (when I was PMS-ing) I considered 
'100 things that Annoy Me'.
No, no, that's not right.
How about something really profound?
Ummm.... still working on that one.  Can I get back to you?

After much consideration, I decided that it really doesn't need to be about me.
I want to celebrate you.
So I'm having a giveaway.
I haven't been super creative lately, so I don't have anything cute and homemade to entice you.
But I am practical.

How about this?
Starbucks $5 giftcard and a great cookbook!

You'll have plenty of time to go sip a latte and decide what to make for dinner, because the meals in this book only take 30 minutes to prepare.
Here are some yummy options:
Spicy Broccoli Cheese Soup
Fettuccine with Lemon Pesto and Shrimp
Coca-cola Sloppy Joes
Chocolate Hazelnut Napoleons

I will randomly draw a winner on Thursday night and post the winner on Friday morning.
Just leave me a comment and you'll be in!

I just discovered Blogland a few weeks ago---I've always been a late bloomer, I fear. Your blog has such a soothing feel to it. I loved your grapevine wreath idea....I do the same thing. The grapevine I reuse was actually from a beautiful arrangement at my mom's funeral many years ago.....and since I inherited my creativity from her, it makes me doubly happy to have it hanging on my front door. Congrats on your 100th post milestone-----here's to many more posts down the road.

Ooh, what a great cookbook. I've never heard of it before, but I so need it! My husband - a farmer - usually gives me about 30-45 minutes notice before he'll be home for supper. This could be anytime between 5 and 10 at night. ;( This is a terrific idea! :) I hope I win...if not I'll have to look into finding it anyway! :)

Congrats on the 100th!! I am enjoying your blog!

Tricia Anne said...

I have an award for you listed on my blog today!!
Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne
