My 100th Post !!!

Here it is..... my 100th post! Many bloggers celebrate this milestone in different ways. Some host nifty give-a-ways and contests, some post a list of facts about themselves, and some have flashy graphics. But I think I'll just give myself a rose! When I started this blog stuff almost a year ago (yes, my bloganniversary is coming soon too!) I didn't have any idea what kind of response there would be or if I would even keep it up. But I have to say that overall it has been a great experience. My cousin over at A Little Something EEEEEkstra (who also celebrates her 100th post this week!) was one of my inspirations. As were many of the folks over at RV Dreams . Once I got hooked and began following several other bloggers with similar interests, the addiction began. I'm sure many of you can relate! Probably the most satisfaction that this has brought me has been the fact that my crafting interests, particularly quilting, have been stimulated! Plus, the connection with friends (old and new) and family has been wonderful . Though occasionally we may be a little boring, I hope you all get some enjoyment from reading about our adventures and if nothing else, a little amusement!

E, our first born, visited this weekend. It's hard to believe, but she hasn't been here since Christmas so it was about time she came to see Mom and Dad! We did nothing special, just hung out, shopped and ate! She had a little re-finishing project for Dad to help her with, though she is quite capable on her own, they made a good start on it. While I sat in on the B.O.M. meeting over at Among Friends Quilt Shop she browsed and found some pretty batiks to try a sewing project for herself. Just another one of my talented children!

Dad was thrilled that she agreed to a short ride on the Harley with him. He really enjoys showing off his toy! The company she works for has gone to a four day work week so the drive to our house is a little easier now. It was great to have her home!
Saturday evening, we enjoyed a family dinner out with E, B and N. I've not quite acquired the taste for sushi as the rest of them have, but some of these were cooked and really pretty good. For you foodie photo fans - here you go! I forgot my camera, but the iphone met the challenge!
This was a new restaurant, Beijing Grill and Sushi Bar (no website yet). I even tried a Vietnamese noodle bowl, Bun Xa Ot. Interesting and worth trying again sometime.
Cupcake swap time! Hey Sharon, I've got my swap gift just about ready to mail! Hope I'm not giving too much away here, but Susan at Blackberry Creek will soon be getting this package filled with ?????. I know I have to get this done before I take off to welcome grandbaby #1. This is all for tonight. I'm ready to aim for the next 100 posts! Thank you all so much for stopping by and reading. Thanks also to those of you who take the time to post a comment. Maybe some day I'll surprise you all with a give-a-way for commenters! Stay tuned and have a great week!

Happy 100th, Janet! Long live blogging! Oh my, that cupcake bag is so cute. And it's mine, you say? I can't wait to see what's inside. Will have your package done by the end of the week. Have a great day.

Blogging sure does add a new facet to our lives, doesn't it. Congrats on the 100 mark. That cupcake bag is so cute :)
