200th Post!!!

Welcome one and all to my 200th post!!!!!

Woot, woot!

Who knew I had that much to say?
Who knew I'd stick with something for this long, lol!

I'm so glad I've gotten better at this whole blogging thing ... because my first few posts really sucked.  Like really sucked, haha.

Being here has made me some wonderful new friends, and allowed me to expand my imagination in writing and photography.  Plus, I've stopped playing Farmville on Facebook, and I'm sure my husband loves that!

So to celebrate all my wonderful followers and friends, I am hosting a swap!!!  It's a magnet swap!

Growing up we always went to visit my Grandparents lake house.  On their fridge was a magnet from every state they had been too ... which was almost all of the 50 states.  I loved looking at all the fun magnets and hearing stories from each trip, so I want to share magnets from around the states and where ever else!

Oh look ... a picture of me in the lake:
I loved those summer days ... so much I totally plan on retiring in a lake house ... with a boat where we can fish all day and swim and read books in a hammock ... sigh ...

Oh back to reality ... can I retire at 26?

Wanna swap magnets with me??? I surely hope so!!!  It's super simple ... each person will have another person they are assigned to and they send that other person a magnet and a postcard with a fun fact about their home state/city.  Then we will all meet back here and post (with pictures) of the magnet and postcard you got in the mail with a link to your new friend's blog!  Sounds like fun right!

Wanna tweet about it?

  1. Sounds like fun! I'd love to do it, but I know I don't realistically have time to find a good magnet and postcard, and I don't particularly want a moody 2yo! :)

  2. lol no need to send me anything but happy 200th post, I am the 250th follower :)

  3. You need to block Ian immediately. LOL! Just kidding.

    Happy 200th! The magnet swap is a cute idea (I might participate... I'd have to find the time to get a magnet and postcard before I commit to it though, b/c I suck at getting things in the mail in a timely manner).

    And just look at you and your hubby in the sidebar in your orange. G.A.G. ;)

    Roll Tide! <-- Had to do it. :D

  4. happy 200th! hmm, i'd love to send you a magnet from the philippines, but i'm pretty sure it'll get lost in the the mail.

    so here's what i'll do: maybe i can send you a photo of the magnet with the fun facts about it. sounds good? :)
