Post 100!! And just a little taste of one of my favorites (also known as-a GIVEAWAY!)

These are Ashton's glasses from her 100th day of Kindergarten!
I thought they were appropriate!! :)
Yeah, I'm a packrat.

Well, friends, I made it to 100!

It doesn't seem like it's been that long!
Honestly, when I first started this blog, I didn't know if
I'd actually keep it up or not. But I really love it! I love
knowing that I am recording our life in words and photos
in a way that I might not have had otherwise!

***************************************

And I have made some great new friends and
been able to get some great insight into my IRL
friends who also have blogs here.
Thanks to everyone who reads this blog on a
regular basis. You honor me! Seriously.

**************************************

Now to the fun stuff!
As all of you who read my vacation post know,
we stopped at Priester's Pecans on the way to Atlanta.
I LOVE nuts in any form (see: Paul-hehe) but I really
love pecans. Maybe it's a southern thing. I don't know.
But they're to die for! Priester's makes them just
about any way you can imagine-frosted, honey glazed,
roasted and salted, with chocolate and caramel...
{wiping drool off chin}
Sorry.
So, since I love Priester's, and I love all of you
(not in any funny way, you know what I mean!)
I thought it would be neat if I brought the two
together! So, I'm giving away some of the yummy
goodness! Around $25 worth of any Priester's
goodies you think you'd like to try!

*************************************

So, here's the info:
Go visit Priester's website then come back and
tell me what you'd like to try-as many things as
you'd like to try! That gets you entered!

Want more entries?
1. Follow me and let me know in another comment.
2. Grab my button and leave another comment.
3. Blog about my giveaway, even a little blurb-
just make sure you link it-and you can have
2 extra entries. Leave me 2 comments and
please tell me where I can go read about it!
~That's up to 5 entries!!~

**************************************
Ready? Set?? GO!!! You have until Friday, July 24!
Didn't find anything you'd like? Nuts not your
thing? That's not a problem-maybe I'll just give
you $25 from YOUR favorite place-just let me know!
And thank you all again!
TTFN,


BTW-I'm loving Blogger today. No matter how much
I complain, it is really good sometimes! I had this
whole post typed up and just before I hit publish, my
DSL went down! I was totally bummed thinking
I'd have to retype it all, but thankfully when I
came back, it was all still here!!! It had saved the
draft! Thank you blogger!
