100th Post and a Give-away!

Well, if you are reading this, you my friend, are one faithful reader of one very unfaithful blogger:) (Or you are here because my friend Bethany sent you my way:) I love this little blog o' mine, and I really do have good intentions of updating it more often, but I don't always find the time to spend updating it as much as I would like! Plus, sometimes it feels like there are only about five people reading it anyways, so why bother. Ya know?

Still, somehow I have manged to reach a very important milestone- my 100th post!


In honor of finally updating this little blog 100 times, I have a very special giveaway. . . .

You see, I have this dear friend. A dear, out of this world, amazingly talented friend. She's a party planner extraordinaire. A phenomenal photographer. An amazing listener (sometimes I barely let her get a word in edgewise during our hours long, kinda one sided, phone conversations - and I interrupt a lot. . . ) She has been there for me during some of the darkest, I mean really, really dark moments of my life. She's the one I call when it hurts so bad I think I will explode, and even though she's like halfway across the country and there's nothing she can say or do, her simple "I know." somehow makes it better. She's just too sweet for words. She deserves a post of her own and if I updated this blog oh, say, more than once every two or three weeks- I would totally dedicate an entire post to dear, sweet, Bethany. . . but for now. Let me just tell you that another one of her talents is bow-making. . . Look at this sweet cutie-pie and that adorable bow! I'll bet you know someone who would look really cute in a bow like this:)




You could win a bow like this one, just for leaving a comment at the end of this post:) (And no, commenting on my Facebook page doesn't count this time- sorry.) If you don't have a blogger account, you just comment anonymous and leave your name and email at the end. I will randomly draw a winner on Sunday afternoon- so you've got a while to get your comment in! I will then contact you and Bethany will send the bow your way. . . cause she's cool like that!

I would make a bunch of promises about updating more and being a better blogger, but I'm not sure that I could keep them. So here's your chance, leave me some comment love on this important blog-o-versary and win your cutie-pie this adorable headband and bow! (Adorable model-not included:)

Hey there! I followed the bread trail left by your friend to your blogger. And I agree, she is quite a party planner and this headband is just too much! Too cute! Too everything! So, I would love it if you would pick me (but if not, perhaps I will have to ask your friend to make me one)- I am terrible at anything remotely crafty.

You know me....I check your blog often!! And I have been guilty of not posting on my blog as often as I use to! Things get crazy and we all understand!! I always enjoy seeing new pictures of the girls and my girls enjoy looking at them too!! Very CUTE bow by the way! I think Ava would look adorable in it! :-)

Mommy said...

Your girls are so cute!! I also have two girls :) Congrats on your 100th post! I'd love to win that gorgeous bow. Bethany is quite AMAZING!! So glad I got to meet her in person :)

Oh Lisa, you and your family are so adorable. I'm amazed that you can even keep a blog going, much less do facebook, work on a master's degree, etc. :-) A hearty congratulations on your 100th post, and I look forward to reading many more. (I don't usually leave comments on blogs since I'm not a blogger, but the bow really is super cute.)

Hey Lisa, Love learning about your 100th post - now that's a milestone to celebrate!!! And what a wonderful friend you have to walk along with you in life!

You know I so enjoy hearing about the fam and all that's going in the Hart household!

As I've been telling you for years, your gift of writing is extrodinary - and I have a feeling we're sitting on the sofa chatting when I read it......thanks for inviting me to share the ups, downs, and everything in the middle in this journey of life we are participating in.

Luv ya, Lin

So cute!!I was sent your way by your awesome friend Bethany...I am trying to duplicate ( which I am quickly realizing can't be done) the fabulousness of her Sweet Shoppe party!! I love the headband and my daughter is so into those right now! Congratulations!

Hi Lisa:
This is the first time I read your blog, I'm honest.
I came because Bethany sent me your way :) but anyway ...
You are right, she is very sweet.
Congratulations on your 100th post!
My baby girl will look super cute if I win the headband ;)

Laura Garrett said...

Hmmm I don't think my boys would appreciate such a pretty bow...Although Ethan often tells me he is a little girl. Funny how things have changed since he discovered "girls" at preschool. I do however have a beautiful niece that would look pretty darn cute in one :) 100 updates already....seems like I just started reading your blog. Keep them coming, we all love hearing from you.

Lisa, I love reading your blog, Carepages and Facebook entries. You are a wonderful writer and an amazing mom. Avery and Kaylen are blessed to have you as their mommy. I know - I know - you are thinking the same thing I do when it comes to my gift from God, CeCe - we are the ones who were truly blessed when God chose us to be these amazing little girls mommies! Congratulations on your 100th post!!!! Please keep them coming :-)
love you :-)
