a midweek note:

February 5, 2009

this is my 200th post! hurray!

good morning:

so this is a sort of random note for the week.

last august, i designed the wedding invitations for my friend, mindy. i met her at bible school. anyway, i got this lovely package of tea + teapot + white chocolate (my favorite!) from her in the mail a couple days ago. packages really are the best.. so thank you mindy!

on tuesday, my blog dreams came true. or i won the blog lottery. whatever you'd call it, my link appeared on one of my favorite blogs: darling dexter. whitney was so sweet to include my blog in her 'new blogs' post. later that day, the book of notes appeared on stumbleupon. the total number of hits i received that day was... are you ready? 3,600! wow. i feel so blessed! i would never have imagined to receive so many hits ever, let alone, in a day. thank you to everyone for your support and kind notes and comments! if you posted a link to the book of notes, i am so grateful. a few places i know of where the envelope book appeared was: a little susy, oh so beautiful paper, c is for charmed, black eiffel, and i was nominated for an oscar for the best supporting gal at the haystack needle ;) it is so nice to put 'inspiration' out in the world: and i got a lot of comments about people wanting to make a book of notes for their special someone.

so anyway, i'm trying to gather together some sponsors for another blog giveaway. if you were around for the last one, it was mega! i decided it'd be neat to have a giveaway every couple weeks, or every month. i thought i'd start with something from one of my favorites and dear friend, jessica, from petitehouse. so be sure to check back for that!

and that wraps up this 200th post! oh, and ps: have you seen this video? "worst price is right player ever" - it seriously had me laughing so hard. seriously. it's funny watching people and their reactions. and that one is pretty unbelievable. then of course there is this one, "taylor's luckiest day on the price is right" - good stuff. hope you have a good laugh. :)
