MY 100TH POST!!!

Thanks for all your great suggestions for this post!

I loved all your ideas.

I especially loved sharing my 100 favorite photos or photos of 100 of my favorite things.

Fabulous idea.

Have you ever tried to upload more than 4 photos on blogger?


That my friends is. not. happening.

I also loved the idea of a 10x 10.

Ten things about ten different subjects.

Another great idea.

I had a hard time coming up with the subjects.

Pathetic...I know.

So...I am going with 100 random things about me.

I know what you are thinking.

There is more?

What hasn't she told us about herself?

Bear with me.

Before I begin, I want to Congratulate my friend, Dana over at Supernanny, Where Are You?

See you all when I return.

Don't do any good blogging without me!

One of my many favorite things about you that you omitted was:

You love to bake things in odd numbers, three's, five's so that you can share them with friends in need like me! Your bloggers should know that you have a generosity gene that is rarely seen these days. One day maybe I'll learn your secret for being able to squeeze one more thing like that into your oh-so-busy days.

Happy vacation to all!


Heather @ A Boy, A Girl, A Pug said...

Would you mind coming over to cook and bake for me?!

I don't know where you are headed on vacation, but I am sure KS isn't that far away:)

Thanks for sharing your 100-you're right though-you could have just copied and pasted mine! We are very similiar-minus that whole silly cooking thing:)

Ashley said...

Congrats on your 100th post!! I can't imagine doing laundry for 5...I feel like I do laundry all the time for just 2!! I love NC as well, and you definitely live in one of the best, if not the best, places in NC! Have a great time on vacation!!~

Susan said...

Krystyn said...

Love you 100! And, I can't believe you did it in an hour! Mine took days!

We're going to miss you! Do you have any more Christmas surprises up your sleeves? Have a great time!

Carol said...

You're going on vacation and only just mentioned it? Does that mean more random Christmassy posts?

Loved your 100. Though I am slightly baffled as to how I got to 100 before you. Clearly my addiction is worse than I actually imagined.

Emily Lauren said...

I'm Leah's friend. I love your blog. I look at it all the time. Your 100th post was great.
Have a wonderful vacation.

Chelle said...

Happy 100th, Wendi! I loved learning all of these things about you! We have a lot in common.
And ya know what? Your house sounds like so much fun!!

Cecily R said...

You and I are kindred spirits in so many ways...through so much of this I was nodding my head, agreeing.

The sitemeter thing made me laugh. I was the same way. Then one day for some weird reason, it just disappeared from my blog. I still haven't figured out how. I never put it back. Its better for me that way.

Oh, and LOVE your new look! Fabulous!

Amy said...

Happy 100th!! Wow, I've got some catching up to do! I never realized that you and I were so much alike. As I was reading, I kept thinking, "Yes, this is me, yes, yes, I do that, too..." Great minds think alike, huh!? Have a great vacation. I'm jealous...
