1000th Post and A Giveaway!

I can't believe that this is my 1000th blog post! 





When I started this blog almost 7 years ago I never dreamed that it would turn into what is has or that anyone would be interested in what I had to say. I am grateful for all of you awesome blogger ladies (and a few gentleman) and what's even cooler is that some of you have become good friends.

To say thank you for all the support over the years I am hosting a giveaway, you can never go wrong with Target and Starbucks can you?! :) Can't wait to see who wins, I'll announce that next week.

a Rafflecopter giveaway


Have a great day, everyone!!!
