let's celebrate! 300 friends blog give-away

{photo fun by Photofunia}
Let's Party!!!

Let's Get Crazy!!!

Let's get...spin around on a mountain top singin kinda crazy!

Why, you may ask?

Because of you my friends, simply because of you.
Am I celebrating a number, oh...most certainly not.
You see...when I first started this adventure a little more then a year ago, I never expected 10 people to be my friends, let alone 300.
I never expected to love blogging this much.
I never expected to feel so much community & soul from strangers.
I never expected to feel like they weren't strangers.
I never expected to be brave enough to try things I'd never dreamed of at this time in my life.
You see sweet hearts...I never expected any of this.

And so we CELEBRATE!!!
To enter my Give-Away all you need to do is leave a comment to this post.
I'd love it if you would tell your friends or add my badge to your sidebar, but that's not necessary.
The name of the lucky winner will be pulled old school from my favorite cowboy hat on September 5th, 2010, cuz that's just how I roll.

Stay tuned for my Sneek Peeks at the 'PRIZE'...
All I can tell you for now is, I know it will involve some jewelry & most definitely a pair of wings!

Let's Fly!

XOXO

WOW! Congrats on your milestone! However, I am not surprised one little bit....nope, my whiskers told me it was bound to happen. As a matter of fact, I'm predicting you'll be at the 500 mark before you know it!!!

Please enter "her" in your give away. By some miracle if "she" were to win, I have no doubt I will get some extra cat snacks out of the deal just for entering "her" ;)

Purrs!

Have a great weekend!
