Thank you and give away!

Woo Hoo! About a week ago I hit 100 followers. And just recently hit 100 subscribers. Around New Years I decided to put my blog out there and try and challenge myself to grow it a little. I started the 2010 with 15 friends and family that had signed up as "followers" and so I have definitely grown my little blog just a wee bit. In the grand scheme of blogs my blog is still just a tiny little spot...but it is my spot. And I am so proud of each comment, follower, hit, and email. They make my day. They motivate me to write.

I started this blog for my boys and my family and friends who don't live close enough to see us daily or even monthly. But it has turned into my place to reflect and pause and take in the little moments as a mother. It has become a fun hobby and spark for some fun friendships.

Thank you to each of you - who take time to visit, read, comment, and email. You make blogging so much fun!

In celebration of you, I am giving away two kids chopsticks (the cow and duck). They are called Animal Cheater Chopsticks. They make meal time here fun (and you know how I feel about family meal time). My boys each have a pair and LOVE them.


How do you win:

Throw a comment down below telling me a little about yourself so that I can get to know you, and make sure to leave a contact...since some of you don't have emails that link up to your profiles.

For a second entry - become a follower and leave a separate entry telling me that you follow. YOU MUST LEAVE a separate entry to get two chances to win!

I will use Random.org to pick a random person to win the set of chopsticks on Thursday!



***I purchased the pair of cheater chopsticks for this giveaway.

Hi Sarah - This is Jamie Trampe - you know me. I just wanted to let you know that I recently watched the movie Julie & Julia and thought of you and your sister actually because it is about food (Raina-I think she likes to cook) and blogging (you)!

Hello daughter Sarah! I remember the day you called me at work and said you had discovered the coolest thing on earth - blogging. Of course you wanted me to drop everything that very moment and read your new, first entry, from work. Of course I couldn't, not allowed, so I had to wait until I got home, when you promptly called me to see if I saw it yet .... and you've been going strong ever since~~~loving all of your words. Mom

Way to go...I'm nowhere near having that many followers! :) Very cool!

Other than the obvious from my blog (two boys, SAHM), I have my masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology. I love to go hiking and camping. I am running my first 5K this Saturday. My husband is writing a book ---it will be great and I will give one away on my blog. I've been married for almost nine years.

Okay...thats enough! :) The chopsticks look fun!

You know from our occasional emails that I love taking photos and playing around with them in Picnik (although you are much better at it than me!). I love reading your blog because it's full of pictures and cute stories about your boys. Even though I tell myself that I want to blog about stuff other than my kids, it always goes back to them ... what can i say, they are my life and I wouldn't change that!

I think I was one of the original 15!! I am your sister's coworker and I always joke with her that I have a mom crush on you:) I love this blog!! It's like reading what I'm thinking in my head-- and being reassured that another person is thinking the same thing!! Happy 100 followers! Amy
