#101...Only 99 To Go

Happy Valentine's Day You All!!! I guess Cat Daddy had a cool time at the party yesterday celebrating my 100th post.....Look at what I got up to!!!! Thanks Laurie for inspiring him. He said he was thinking of you, I mean me, when he was shopping. He also asked me to say thanks to all of you for such a lovely time last night. He doesn't quite remember where he left his boots. Oh well, he'll find them.
First let me say thank you to all who stopped by in the last week and said hello. I appreciate it so much. Second, let me give a big ol' hug and kiss to all my fun friends (my posse) who really went the extra mile by dressing up and posting it. This was the most fun ever. If you get a chance to read the comments, do! It reads like it was scripted right down to the 100th comment, but I promise you up and down, it was all improv and so hilarious! We had such a good time and I wanted to make these 16 good sports know how much I appreciate what they did to make this really special. So it was decided I would put their names in the champagne bucket for a special drawing. Then if that wasn't enough, Laurie said she would match my gift with one of her own....another one of her Fab U Lous creations! Can you believe this! I was overwhelmed. Laurie, you just the best and I love you my darling sweet honey baked ham! So for the first drawing for best dressed partier, I put my lily white, freshly manicured with jungle red nail polish, hand into the bucket and pulled out Pam's name. What a happy coincidence. Pam and I started blogging at the same time and have been going back and forth since the beginning. So here's to you my friend. Congratulations!!! And because I only run with winners.....if all you lovely dressed for success participants will send me your addresses, I'm sending each of you a little something extra just to say how much I love you all!
Now on to the grand prize! Some of you may recognize this guy from last night. If not, meet Chuck the Buck. That's right ladies.....a man is the winner of the Grand Prize! David, I expect to see you in that necklace at least once, before Mindy rips it off your neck! Congratulations and thank you for being such a good sport! David is an amazing photographer and writer so be sure and check out his photos. He has always been the main rooster in this crazy hen house of ours. (Next to C.D., who actually never plays with us, hmmm? Gotta do something about that)
Thanks to you all. I hope everyone had a great time. I know I did. It was just the best!
OK, I'm feeling a little tired and I think I'm in need of a little R&R so if you will excuse me.....You can party, but you can't party here!
LOVE & KISSES

Hey Debbie, Thanks for the tip, and I AM bummed about all the magazines that will no longer arrive in my mailbox. And what's up with the "replacement" magazines they send? They suck, and I bet the publishers know it! Also, thanks for the comment on my blog about "sons"!! And now that you mentioned it, I am also LOW on my spoon count too!
Take care, Sue
