The Big 5-0!!


We did it!  50 Followers!  Ahhh, I have been patiently waiting for this day for-eva!  And for those of you know who me I am NOT patient by ANY means.  So this is huge people, huge!!
This all started as a little blog to keep people updated with Stella, especially my sister who had just moved to Springfield.  And I remember being so excited when I had my first comment from Kacie, quickly followed a few days later by Katie.  They have been real troopers on commenting because let me tell you some days I was uber boring.  lol.  But their little comments of awww and yay kept me going.  And then the day came when I had my FIRST official follower, my bff Kim.  YAY!!  It only took about three months but I think blogging was still pretty foreign to most of the people I knew, and hey it's the little things in life, right?! 

So here we are 383 posts later and 50 followers!!

I just want to thank you all who follow my blog, publicly, privately, secretly, regardless I appreciate it!!  And I want to apologize for the days when I'm uber boring, crabby, emotional, bitchy or just plain driving you nuts and you never hit the unfollow button.  Melts my heart.  lol.

So I have talked about doing a giveaway once I hit 50 followers and well, I ain't all talk.
So here's what you gotta do to win.
First of course, be a follower (the public kind)!!
Leave a comment just saying something nice.  We all like to hear nice things, right.
Giveaway closes at midnight tonight and I will put all your names in a hat (old style people) and draw a winner.
And then announce tomorrow morning, so check back to see if you have won!
So what am I giving away here folks?!
**A $10 Target Gift Card**
(Remember I have two kids and a husband with a hunting problem, I'm on a budget here people).

YAY!  And thanks again, you guys ROCK!!

I LOVE giveaways, I am so addicted to Target I had to give it up for Lent so a $10 gift card would be AMAZING and my blog today is all about your amazing family=) (I swear I did the blog before I even read your blog today!!)

Katie said...

YAY 50 followers!!! I have always stalked your blog, but I have to admit at first I didnt know about "following" someones blog. So for a while I was one of the private followers.
I dont get to see you and Stella (and Josh) as often as I would like so this blog is what keeps me updated on how big she is getting and the looks she is already starting to give her momma!! I still love the picture of her in her high chair looking at you like ok mom enough with the pictures this morning!! hahah
