100th Post! Something Sweet

I can't believe I've reached my 100th post. Jeff started this blog a long time ago with the hopes that I would take it over. Me, never being one that lets herself get pushed into anything, resisted and refused to do so. I obviously relented and I have to say that I do enjoy myself.

I am happy to have made some new friends, kept up with old ones, stay connected to my family, and reconnect with other family members.

I wish that I had something to offer as a give away. Alas, I am still working on sending out stuff from my last give away. I have a year to fulfill it you know. :) I am making ice cream toppings for that particular give away. Ice cream toppings has something that I've wanted to do for a while. I make a killer caramel sauce and I am developing a hot fudge too. Maybe even a peanut butter hot fudge, inspired by my uncles great love for that particular legume. Oh, and I have a delicious butterscotch!

What the heck! I'll do a give away. I'll give away a set of Miss Heidi's Toppings to the lucky winner. If you won one before, you can still enter. I was going to let you pick what flavor you wanted, but this way you get all four!

Disclaimer: I will get this made and to you as soon as I can. That means it might be next week or a couple of months from now.

Rules: Leave a comment and let me know if there was a particular post you liked out of the 100. If you are a lurker, than could there be a better time for you to come out? You can have up to 5 entries. The cut off date is Sunday ; )

Happy 100th Post DeCoursey Project!

Woohoo, a give away. My favorite posts are cat posts. I like cats, and I think I'm more of a cat person than I care to admit! Congrats on 100 posts! that ice cream looks delicious!

Lisa said...

My favorite post by far (no contest) is the one where Lindsay tells the bully that her ancestors were vikings. That was her finest moment ever! (and it made for a wonderful post!)

Happy 100th Heidi!

Ooh, this sounds like a delicious giveaway! Congrats on making it to 100 posts! I really don't know if I can pick one favorite post (for many reasons: I can't pick a favorite of anything, I have a horrible memory, etc.) but I have truly enjoyed getting to know your family through this blog. Kind of crazy that we've never actually met in person! Though I hope we can at the Mathews reunion this summer--are you going to make it?

Em and Ms said...

Ooh 5 entries? Here's my #2!

Em and Ms said...

and...#3

Em and Ms said...

#4. I'd try to split them up and increase my chances, but refer to my first comment where I mention my horrible memory.

Em and Ms said...

And just for good measure, #5.

I have enjoyed all of your posts, but I would have to say that my favorites are the ones about the girls. Proud Grandma Syndrome?

Jeanette said...

Jeanette said...

Terri said...

Congratulations on 100 posts! My favorite was probably the one to your dad. It made me tear up. Seriously.

Terri said...

Oh, and I totally stole the "box of awesome" phrase. I tell people all the time that they're a "whole box of awesome" now - they get so tickled!

bensfm said...

My favorite post (other than this one with the ice cream topping give-away) was the tribute to your dad. Better than a actualgift, I'm sure!

SuzanSayz said...

There. I not only clicked on both of your ads, I even clicked on the clicks on the ads themselves.
You know, in case it gets extra credit or someting?

David said...

Carolyn G said...

I admit, I am a lurker but I lurk all the time so it's not personal. :)

I like the 2/23 Random Thoughts post. I love random thought posts. It actually gives you alot of insight on people. I always seem to do random musing posts too.

Heidi! How can I choose a favorite!? I love reading your blog. You have a great talent for captivating the reader in the first sentance. For example, "Peanut Butter Fudge Sauce.." mmm...still dreaming about it.
