Welcome to the party... Won't you come in?

Check Out The Cool Christmas Give-Away that Lysa Terkeurst (Proverbs 31 Ministries) is doing today

(Would you like to win something wrapped in a little blue box? Well, then, come on in...)

Welcome to my 100th Blog Post Party!

I've never hosted a "virtual" party before. While there's no need to send out invitations, if I DID, they would have looked something like this. (Yes, you ARE worth it).

And I know that you can't really taste them, but please take a look at the beautiful hors d'oeuvres we're featuring...




I stayed up late last night putting the finishing touches on the decorations...


... and arranged for some spectacular entertainment:


I wish I had a party favor for each of you, because if I did, it would definitely be something like this.

BUT, one of you IS going home with a beautiful gift, and I'm so please to announce the winner of the November 28 Giveaway!!! My friend at the Paper Sack ( made a lovely cornhusk angel that will now belong to:

"ufjanet" - Congratulations!

I'm pretty sure that the "UF" portion stands for the University of Florida. Ah... I should have thought to add restrictions.

If you've read through this entire post, I think you deserve a little surprise, too. So, I'm pleased to announce that I'll be linking up to the Cool Christmas Giveaway at Lysa's site in order to give away the following prizes:

(Since this blog is inspired by the everyday happenings in my life, I decided to give away 1 item in honor of each member of my sweet little family.)

The gift for Mom? Two boxes of fine Tiffany & Co. stationary (one lined in the famous Tiffany blue border, the other box lined in a sophisticated, dark blue shade).

The gift for Dad? One fragrance gift set of Tiffany for Men cologne and lotion.

The gift inspired by our Drew? A few good books that I don't know what I would have done without for the past 3 years: "Bringing Up Boys" by Dr. Dobson; "For This Child I Prayed" by Stormie O'Martian; and "That's My Son" by Rick Johnson

So, leave a comment. I'll give you until next Friday (12/12) at 5pm. Indicate in your comment which giveaway you would like (Mom, Dad or Drew). And maybe this time I'll get a little creative with the drawing.

Thanks for stopping by and helping me celebrate! Sorry to end the party so early, but 4:30 a.m. comes awfully early...

Okay, so I just typed a longish comment and got an error message. I'm so bummed, and hope it wasn't lost. :'(

Luanne said...

Those books sound awesome--never read the Dobson book, but always meant too. God bless.

Joanie Butler said...

Good morning! Please enter me for the "Drew" prizes, and if I may say so, "What a cutie he is." I could use the help of the books that you are offering in the Drew contest as I have an amazing and wonderful, although challenging, 4-year-old son of my own. One can never get enough knowledge or prayer when raising children.

Merry Christmas!

Busy Mom said...

We have two boys we are raising with a daughter in the middle. I'd love to win "DREW"
Merry Christmas.

Jen said...

Tina said...

Thanks for the great giveaway. I'd love Drew's prizes for my Matthew and soon-to-be-born other son. Matthew is 4, has twin 2 year old sisters and then boy #2 is due in February. I need all the help I can get!! :-)

Merry Christmas.!

Shelly W said...

Well, since we have only girls in our house, the boy stuff wouldn't really work. But we do have a mom and a dad, so either of those would be great--especially those notecards! ;)

Thanks for the giveaway!

I love the dad gift. My man needs a new smell. Not that his current smell is bad but that man can make a bottle of cologne last for years.
