It's Time...Come Celebrate!

Brace yourself this one is going to be a long one and there is a little something in it for you!

It's my 100th post bring on the fireworks and cake!

First things first, I want to thank all of you so much for coming over and reading my blog! You all are amazing! I really have made a lot of friends in the past few months. You also have been with me though a few things, my first post was when Landon was just 5 months old and he will be 9 months old next week. You have seen his first crawl, his first tooth (he has two more coming in by the way) and his first pool experience and many more firsts and I am sure that there will be more to come. I hope you stick around to see them.

Now it's time for my Q&A segment. Sit back and enjoy.

The first question comes from Cammie. She wants to know How I met my husband and How I knew he was the one.

This is a good one. I met my husband at Walmart (yes embarrassing I know) He was working there and me and my best friend at the time would go in there every night after working out. He came up and asked for my number and that was that. I am not sure how long into our relationship that I knew he was the one I realized that I couldn't imagine my life without him and that's when I knew he was the one. We may fight all the time but I still can not imagine me without him.

Next question is from Tina. She wants to know My greatest thing about being a mother.

Well I have always wanted to be a mother. I love children always have. I have babysat my whole life. I love everything about being a mother even the whole being sleep deprived thing (though my body doesn't really love it). But I guess if I had to pick one thing it would be when he smiles at me. I get this feeling that I can't explain every time he does it.

Next question is from Ali. She wants to know if someone was to make me a birthday cake, what kind would it be?

I don't really eat that much cake because I don't like icing (but love the cake part), I guess it would either have to be cheesecake or ice cream cake.

And the last question is from Cadance. She wants to know what my "normal" day is like.

I don't think I have had a normal day since Landon was born. But my usual routine is getting up between 4:45 and 5:10 getting myself ready for work, then getting Landon ready. Take Landon to my sisters and then go to work. At work it is very routine I work at a hospital in medical records so I answer phones, file, fax, and do pretty much whatever else is asked of me that day. Then we go pick Landon up from my sisters and usually visit with them for awhile, then back home for dinner, then a bath and bed. Landon is sleeping pretty much all night now so we usually get a good nights sleep. This changes day to day though.

Thank all of you for your questions.

Such a cool giveaway.

My fav card is the one that says "Just a little peep from the ___ family". I don't have cards for my 'family' so these would be great to have.

Brandi- Congrats on your 100th post! I just found your blog and already love it!

I follow both you and InkObsession.

I actually love the card set shown in the picture above the best, because I have always heard that Elephants bring the best of luck. When I was going through a hard time dealing with the sudden passing of my Mom and my diabetes, someone sent me a card with an elephant on it and attached was an elephant charm, saying it was good luck. Through the power of our Lord my heart was able to heal, but I have always kept the elephant just as a nice reminder that friends care.

Ok, here's to another 100 posts...XO

Yay on your 100th post! I am finally nearing mine and am trying to figure out what I'm going to giveaway!! Any good ideas? :)

Anyway, I have a bit of a note card addiction, therefore, found it very tough to choose just one. However, I ended up choosing "Thank You Defined Pink."
