Let's Get This Party Started!

There has been laughter, tears, and frustrations.

There was two cross-country moves.

There have been highs and lows.

Not to mention all the laundry and lunch dates and silly things I do.

And, oh!, the typos. The many, many typos.

It all started mid-summer with a Big Bloggy Blueberry Day, and 1000 posts later. Here I am....

The 1000th post!

I thought we would start with a post entitled 1000 Things About Me.

Here we go:

1. Just Kidding! I can hear the "out" clicks of 1000 20 mice (as in the computer kind).

Anyway, we can't have a party with out fun party favors! I'm giving away fun things this week! All you have to do is BYOC. Bring Your Own Comment (s).


Comment each day. (Not that I am fishing around for comments. Uh, no, I'm totally fishing. All. Week. Long). I will randomly draw winning numbers using the Random Generator on Sunday March 21, and post the winners on Monday March 22. You don't have to be a blogger to win but you must have a valid email. 


If you are one of those people who keep emailing me comments-spam, (as always) your comments will not be posted to the drawing because you annoy me.

Today's party favor?

This sweet little Spring Chick hand towel:

Now, I am not the only one celebrating this week. One of my favorite bloggers is also celebrating this week. Meredith and I met a couple years ago via our blogs when she one a ballet skirt I was giving away. She has become a dear friend.  A friend that I hope I get to meet face-to-face within the span of the next 1000 posts. Hopefully WAY sooner!

I keep trying to talk her into coming to see me in NC. So do me a favor and go on over to her place later and tell her why North Carolina would make a fine place to visit.

One of the really neat things about Meredith is how she connected me to the CarpoolQueen and several other great bloggers in the South. I was thinking about it the other day and realized that she sort of has this Kevin Bacon - Three Degrees of Separation thing going on the net, and I want to know how you know her? Think about it and be prepared to tell in tomorrows comments.

It may be a party on the net, but its work as usual at home...laundry calls...oh, the life of a blogger.

Happy 1000th!!!

Could that little spring chick scream SPRINGTIME any louder! I love that spring is hear (well mostly) and I can't believe you made it to 1000 posts. I hit 500 this weekend :-)

Congrats, My Coffee Friend!

Carpool Queen said...

Many, many congratulations, Kel. I'm so glad we played the Meredith Bacon game and wound up being friends.

I'm also glad you bake.

And share that baking with me.

Rebecca said...

Yay for Spring Chicks!!!!

O Mom said...

I read Meredith's blog. I just can't remember if I came here from there or got there from here. Do you know? (j.k.)
I was so excited for 1000 things about you, I'm stalkerish like that!

Charity said...

Happy 1000th post...wow! That's a lot of blogging :)

Jewel said...

I was excited too for the 1000 things about you!;)

Congratulations on the 1000 posts. I am happy I found your blog I think a year ago and although I've had to have a couple of months of little time for blogging and reading blogs, I'm feeling back now and so expect my comments to pick up once again as I reconnect to your life in posts:)

Andrea said...

That's awesome!

Lori said...

Super cute spring towel! Sounds like you've got a fun week planned - thanks for sharing the celebration with us!

Happy 1000!! So glad to have discovered your blog though I can't remember exactly how...thanks for the laughter and encouragement!

Happy post #1000! I found you through Meredith!

Candace said...

Happy 1000! I'll be putting my name in the hat all week! Woo hoo! I am ESPECIALLY partial to aprons and I'm a little concerned I might miss that post b/c I'll be out of town and off the grid later on in the week. Oh well... for now, I'm in, right? :)

Erin said...

Congrats on post #1000 :-)

I am not usually together-enough to have fancy towels but that towel is just adorable! It reminds me of the Twitter bird and I love it!

I hope you enjoy your week!

Jen said...

Happy Bloggiversary? Or how about just heartfelt congratulations?!

My DH is looking at a job in Charlotte. Would that be, per chance, anywhere near you and other fun women friends?

Melissa @ Breath of Life said...

May I say you look good for your age ;-)

I discovered you through His Girl, and I'm so glad I did. Funny, though, how a Virginian found a North Carolinian through a Californian. This internet...it's a tricky business.

Sandra said...

Happy 1000th posts! Wow! I became involved in reading your blog by reading other blogs. This reminds of how excited we get on the 100th day of school each year and we do activities! Wishing you thousands more blogs!

Happy 1000! I just love your blog :-) I also love having the potential to win something that you created with Clinton.

I owe so much to CPQ for connecting me to you.

Deidre said...

Congratulations on 1000 posts! Wow, that's A LOT!

I love your blog and check in daily. I will say, if you ever get Meredith to come to NC and y'all leave me out of the 'meet up', I'm deleting you both from bloglines ;) ha!

I'm kidding.

Actually, I'm not.

I love you both!

Teresa Henry said...
