If you have made it this far, thank you! I also want to thank all of you out in blogland who take the time out of your day to stop by and see what is going on in my life. Since I am celebrating my 100th post, I am going to go along with blog tradition and offer a give-a-way to my readers. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. I will print out all of the comments on Wednesday and have Allison pick a winner. The winner will receive a collection of Home Interiors candles. You can see all the wonderful new scents here. Once Allison picks a winner, the winner will get to pick 5 Petite Jar Candles of their choice. They can be all the same scent or 5 different ones. It's the winner's choice. Each candle has an approximate burn time of 48 hours. The current scents are: Baked Apple Pie, Dulce de Leche, Caribbean Splash, Iced Lemon, Apple Limeade, Strawberry Shortcake, Plum Crazy, Passion Fruit & Papaya, Spiced Cider, Ruby Red Punch, Pineapple Ginger, Caramel Pear, Raspberry Lemonade, White Peach Nectar, Hot Cinnamon Buns, Maraschino Delight, Mango Cooler, Icing, Apple Pie a la Mode & Strawberry Shake. I'll order them the following Tuesday and have Home Interiors ship them directly to you. This is fun! I can't wait to see who wins! I know there are some lurkers out there so be sure to come out of lurkdom and post a comment by Wednesday.

Good Luck!

Wow Cindy. We have ALOT in common. I love reading your blog and I check it every morning with my cup of coffee! Your blog is part of my daily routine! Have a great Sunday.

Happy 100th post!! I loved reading the 100 things about you and I could relate with many of them.

Jolene George said...

What a great post! After reading your list I discovered that we really do have a lot in common. If was fun to learn so much about you all at once. Congratulations on your 100th post Cindi! :o)

Carol Y. said...

Cindy, I love all the recipes you post especially with the accompanying pictures. Yum!
I don't know how you came up with 100 things about yourself. I guess I'll have to sit down and try it. I haven't even made one of those lists people make of things they want to do before they die. I guess I should work on both of them. Congratulations on 100 posts especially since so many people don't seem to add to their blogs very often or give up on it.
