Helen Louise and Debra Lynn cordially invite you to participate in the 100th Post/Giveaway/Birthday Celebration February 13, 2009.Aw heck y'all, I just can't do it. I know Mother would want me to be all fancy schmancy with engraved invites and return envelopes for your R.S.V.P.'s, but it's not me and besides I'm too lazy! I also thought my money would be better spent for my special giveaway prize to be announced later. Stamps and cards? Presents? Which would YOU rather have. So here's the dirt. This Friday I will be posting my 100th post. For those of you who have been keeping up, I have been doing posts leading up to this milestone(millstone?) beginning with the 93rd. This is the 98th post. Every time y'all have a left a comment on a post, your name has been put in the champagne bucket to be drawn out Friday night at Midnight!!! The winner will be announced Saturday, Valentine's Day!
On Friday I will be hostessing the party with Helen Louise. BTW, isn't she gorgeous? If you tell me I look just like her, I will blow you a kiss! This was her Senior Prom photo 1943. Kerri(Sister Trash) and I still have the dress and corsage. It's in S.T.'s possession right now. I will be presenting my version of me per a mannequin. I'm planning on being much younger and thinner. I'm encouraging all of y'all to join in on the fun and dress yourself or a facsimile and post it as well. If you do, I'll add your names an additional time. Leave me a R.S.V.P.(translate that to comment) that you plan on stopping by with your dates, (You do have a date...I hope you made a date...I told you to get a date...I'm not sharing Harry...You can still bid on Cat Daddy...Pick a date out for gosh sakes!) and if you will be posting photos. I'll add a link to your blog if I know you're coming.
I've been putting things in the box that I will be mailing to the winner, but the Grand Prize is a doozy!!! It's my way of saying thanks to all of you. I can't afford the airfare to travel to see all of you and give you a hug, but I wish I could. So consider this a long distance hug from me to you. I only started blogging in August, but this has been the most fun I think I've ever had with my clothes on. Get your minds outta there...I think bubble baths are fun too! Some of you have been along for the ride beginning in August, some of you are new. I'm getting to meet some of the most wonderful and talented people doing this and I thank God for blessing me with this adventure.
So to quickly recap, leave a comment(ask if you don't know how), get name in bucket, show up Friday, leave comment, get name in bucket one final time, have fun and possibly win!!! In case you were wondering, Lulu, I and my family members are ineligible to win. Someone needs to tell Sister Trash that. Look what she tried to slip by me. Kerri's prom circa 1972.
I think that's it for now. If you have any questions, the Q&A Department is listed just below.
I am a wife, mother of 2 nana to 3. I am old enough to buy liquor if I wanted to. I've been in the antique business for too long. I'm a 6th generation Texan and wouldn't live anywhere else. I love the Lord, my family, old musicals, Stephen King novels, junk and my life.
