Celebrating My 100th Post!!!

Wow. This post, yes the one you are reading right now, is my 100th blog post!!! Can you say "awesomeness"?!? 5 months + 100 posts = 1 happy blogger :) When I first started my blog I didn't know what the future held for it. Would I enjoy blogging? I learned quickly, YES! Would people read my posts? Apparently so! Would I keep up with it? Glad to say absolutely!! And here we are.... on my 100th blog post. Slightly proud, even more so excited. Thank you to everyone for reading my little space on the internet and encouraging me to continue to do what I enjoy so much. Now let's celebrate!!

What better way to show my excitement on this huge milestone for my little blog than with a sponsor discount AND a giveaway!!!

Happy 100th post!! Congrats!
Favorite tradition: staying at my parents house and waking up with my sister, her bf, my husband, 2 dogs, and my parents and still acting like kids to walk downstairs to see what 'santa' brought!

On Christmas Eve the entire side of my mom's family gets on a conference type call and someone reads Twas the Night Before Christmas! It used to be my grandma, but since she passed away in 2008 my mom has done it. She used to read it to my mom and her siblings when they were younger and its been read every year since the oldest cousin was born. She'll be 28 in March :)

On Christmas eve, the kids all get to open one present and it is new pajamas and a new game for us to play together. They will open the pajamas and rush to go put them on so that we can play the new game. So much fun and excitement! We always talk about the true meaning of Christmas and on Christmas morning we sing Happy Birthday to Jesus and Thank him before we open our presents. I love Christmas!
