2008--My First Blog Post
~~~~
~~~~
(sniff)
Where would the world be without my first blog post?
Well, I can tell you how my world would be...
  • my house would (hopefully) be a whole lot cleaner
  • my kids would see more than the back of my head
  • my fledgling scripture tote business would be booming (yeah, right)
  • I would never have met or become better acquaitned with some truly wonderful, fabulous, beautiful women.

So, of course, I must celebrate my upcoming Blogiversary with a giveaway.

I'm not celebrating my blog here though, just want to straighten that up real quick--(despite what this post title might lead you to think)--I want to celebrate all of you guys out there, who have become my friends over the past year.

So, I went to the Dollar store this morning (big spender that I am)

I saw this adorable little box...

and I found some cute little things to fill it up with-which I'll share with you slowly over the next couple of days.
I have to share this with you now though, because it's too big to fit into the box.
I liked this sign so much, I bought two--one for one of you, and one for me. :P
I will show you one thing that is going inside the box....

It actually might not be an American Express gift card though-because In-n-Out doesn't take American Express. It'll be a Visa or Mastercard instead. It will have $25 loaded on it though-for you to spend as you wish.

There is definitely some chocolate in there, and a little something made by me.

So, here are the rules:

  • Leave me a comment, or two, or three, or four--as many as you want. You'll get one entry per comment.
  • Each comment MUST contain a random fact about yourself.
  • Let your friends know, the more the merrier I say.
  • If you post about it on your blog, let me know in another comment, that way you get an additional entry.
  • You have until March 17th at 6:00 AM to leave me a comment.
  • I'll draw a winner that morning.
  • I'm offering a second and third place prize too. I'll post about those later as well.

So there you go. Hope you enter, I love doing giveaways.

:Jan the crazy lady: said...

Yay to Mikki. Happy Blogaversay. We all love you.

Random fact about me - I have a problem with the brass they put in the windows. You know what I am talking about right? It is like they are trying a little to hard to look important. I use to make storm windows in Orem UT. So I can say something. Hee hee.

imbeingheldhostage said...

Congrats on your Blogiversary!!! What a fun fact-filled post (you mean my house would be cleaner if I got off of the computer?). I always love your tunes. That's not my random fact....

is there anything I haven't told you?

Uh.... oh! once I loaned my brand new 4x4 truck to a boyfriend because he was stressed out about his missing little brother... he sank it in Lake Powell, AZ while boonie hopping with his brother and a couple of other girls.
SANK IT. Totalled my truck.
I stopped seeing him.

Krissy said...

happt blog-iversary!!! lol

Facebook has totally taken over my life these past couple months. I do EVERYTHING on there. lol

Krissy said...

I have 4 blogs. And I try to update ALL of them. lol One, not so much... but the other 3... ... hahaha

Which is why I've been so absent in the blog-world lately... Facebook and trying to keep up with all my blogs! lol And my crazy kids. *sigh* my crazy, crazy kids.

Mrs. Mordecai said...

Congrats! Fact: I'd usually rather have soup than ice cream.

tammy said...

Fun giveaway Mikki! I'll post about it on my blog. That is a darling box. Especially for $1! That would look fab on my new shelves in my craft room....assuming they actually finally get hung.

K, here's a random thing about me. I hate people to look at my feet.

I'll be back with more!

Missy said...

I just love your blog!
-I have a very sensitive sniffer...I can identify any smell.

April said...

Ooooh.....uh oh. I think you may have unknowingly caused your comment form to be inundated with my name!!! MWAH HA!

Random Fact.... Uhh.

When I get tired, my left knee and ankle hurts.... very weird, but it started when I sprained my ankle when I was like 3. Ever since if I stay up too late it hurts.

backandthen said...

What random thing can I tell here that you don't already know? What random fact can I write here that others will like to read?
Let me see....
My sister and I are taking the missionaries out to dinner on Saturday. I have booked a table in a popular restaurant in St-Etienne, yes, you have to book a table days ahead for this place. The food is not fancy it is just that it is very traditional and so fun. When they serve you a fondue or a raclette they bring the real cast iron thing. It is heavy and there is real coal in it. Not your little electric appliance.
This is why they have big tables. It takes much room to eat there if you don't want to get burnt.
And the funny part is that when you're about to explode because you ate too much they come to you with a big smile and they ask you if you'd like more.
I will put pics on my blog about it. I am sure you'll love it.

April said...

I am allergic to almost all fruits, and tomatoes. They make my tongue break out in spots and the skin on my mouth starts peeling off!!! EWW!

April said...

I am blogging at work right now...

April said...

I hate carrots....cooked or not. They're gross.

April said...

Brown with black annoys me SO much I can't handle it. If someone is wearing these two colors together, it makes me want to strangle them!!! GRR!

The only place I ADORE brown with black is in the kitchen. Dark wood with black and stainless appliances is awesome.

April said...

I met my husband online...

on www.hotornot.com...

I am such a loser.

April said...

Okay...last one...for NOW...mwah ha....

My HUGEST blog pet peeve? Auto starting music!!!! (Yes...you are a culprit, but I still love you.)

Second blog pet peeve... WORD VERIFICATION!!!! (Again, you are a culprit - but so is 90% of the blogging world.) It's like...my blog isn't important enough for people to spam me - and even if it was - I'd be honored that they thought they could reach tons of readers by comment spamming me. lol

Last one for today I promise.

Random Fact:

I have listened to the Tinkerbell movie more times than I have seen it. I blame that on car DVD players and kids who will only be quiet in the car when a movie is on. :)

I started walking at 10 months. Hopefully our children have the same luck :)

When I was 3, I sat down at the piano one day and just started playing, note by note, I am a Child of God. My mom thought I would be a master pianist one day. I quit piano lessons after 6 months. . . I regret it to this day!

I was 5' 2 3/4" until my senior year of high school and then finally, I hit 5' 3". And that's where I've stayed :)

Ok, this is more a random fact about my husband, but he has been playing the violin since he was 3 and can also play the guitar, piano and he sings. I know. I got lucky. :)

When I was in 8th grade, I did long jump for track and field and I jumped 17' 1". I didn't jump that far again until my junior year in high school. I think it was a fluke. :)

I sang with my jazz choir, 10th Avenue, in Hawaii at the Alamoana Shopping center. They have a stage in the middle of the mall that people perform on all the time. It was really fun!

I lived in New Jersey for a month with my Sister and Brother-in-law one summer. It was a 45 minute train ride into New York City and it was so much fun!

when I was 15, I broke my ankle and had a hot pink cast. (And I mean HOT PINK!)

Dallin & Ashley said...

On that same note, I attended a Phil Vasser concert while I had that cast on and he signed it. He also called me, "sweetie" as he was signing it. I fell in love. :)

I love the movie "Goonies" Chunk is my favorite.

I can even do the truffle shuffle (well not really) but I try.

I say every line with the movie, drives the hubby nuts. LOL

I've never been stung by a bee

Dallin & Ashley said...

Stubbing my toe makes me want to swear. In fact, don't tell, but I have sworn on many a toe-stubbing occasion :)

Dallin & Ashley said...

I am currently obbsessed with the TV series The Secret Life of the American Teenager on ABC Family. Total drama and total teenie-bopper dumbness. Oh well

funky bag freak said...

I hate the word "dude" really they should make an age limit law. You have to stop saying "dude at age 9 or you'll be stung by millions of angry wasps.

I broke my collar bone in 4 places during tumbling practice. OUCH!!
