Did somebody say it's my 100th POST?

I can't believe this is my 100th post. I have to say that i love to post, and that when i say i won't be posting for a week, well.....it's just hard to stay away.
Does anyone else feel the same way? I always have something to say. From the "thank you's" to you lovely readers, to pics of my kids, and shop shots, to what i even have on for the day.
So, tell me my dear readers, what you are grateful for today. Just one thing that you woke up and decided that you are grateful for.
I woke up this morning and was grateful for the wonderful night i had with my hubby. We went to see Jackopierce, and haven't see them in over 10 years. They still have it by the way.

O.k. so for the 100th post, i of course only think it's proper to have an ANTHRO giveaway.
Don't you?
Could you use a new skirt? How about half of a boot? Or some small Christmas stocking stuffers?
A $100 gift card is coming your way. Tell me one thing you woke up and were grateful for.
Winner will be picked fair and square with numbers in a hat, and B picking it out!
Thank you for always coming back to Lola B's.
By the way.................you can still shop for some lovely Christmas goodies here.

I'm thankful to be the first one to read/comment on this post. It may bring me good luck!! Really I'm most thankful at this time for family. Without them it would be very lonely. I'm thankful each time they smile, laugh, and yes even cry. It gives living a purpose.

Happy 100th post!!! What an amazing give away!! I am thankful for a lot of things, especially my family, but this morning I'm glad the weather is beautiful since my daughter has her 1st horseback riding lesson at 1!!It should be amazing out there with all the fall colors and the bright sunshine!

Judy said...

I am most thankful for my precious family. They make me laugh, cry and most of all feel loved. I thank God every day for giving them to me. I am a better person because of them. I am thankful for my daughter, Devon, who is growing into a woman that I am so proud of. My son, Ryan, for his sweetness even at 18 yrs old and for my husband, Stephen, who makes me feel that I am the most precious woman on this earth. Thank you God!

Happy 100th post! TODAY I am thankful for creativity. Creating, fabrics, papers, colors....eye candy everywhere I look. Love it. Have a great weekend. Glad you had such a fun time with Bryan last night. No idea of who you went to see:-)

tracey said...

Today is my first born's 7th birthday, so I woke up so grateful for her. As I was still in dreamland this morning, she came in to tap on my shoulder the way she likes to do, and her beautiful face was the first thing to greet me. Happy 100th post - keep 'em coming we all just love your posts!

This morning I woke up grateful for the full, busy weekend ahead of me...the chance to spend time with my family and to get some much needed "nesting" done:)

jamie said...

Kasey, congrats on your 100th post! That is so cool! And how awesome is it that you're giving out such a generous prize! Now, I'm not the most eloquent writer but, to answer the question...I woke up this morning feeling grateful for a God who knows me, knows what I need & is there when I ask for help. Not sure if that's too religious but, our faith is going through some tough times right now & I've had God & religion on my mind a lot lately.

C Maisy said...

WOO-HOO!! Congrats on the 100th post. Amazing how time flies...
I am GRATEFUL for my friend, Kasey, who is coming this week to paint my dining room furniture. She inspired me to try my hand at painting something... not as special as the furniture she will be painting of course. I painted 2mirrors and I think they turned out great for my 1st try. Now i'm going to try an old armoir I have. Wish me luck!
I am grateful for women who inspire me to "just try" something.....the worst thing that can happen is it doesn't turn out.
I am also grateful for all the cool people in this world. I tend to notice the negative people. I am taking today to honor all the awesome people I have around me.
OK i really have to stop this....you've got me feeling very grateful!!
HAPPY WEEKEND!!!!

Hi Kasey,
Wow, what a great giveaway!! I am thankful to have the opportunity to own my little shoppe! Never in a million years did I think that I would be able to do something that I love so much and am able to call my own!!! I feel richly blessed by God to do what I do!!

Happy 1ooth post! Wow, time flies huh? I wish I could say that the thing I was most grateful for when I woke up this morning was something really profound or unbearably sweet, but honestly, I was thankful that I got some sleep! My daughter has been getting up in the middle of the night wanting to sleep with me and my arms are sore and I needed some sleep;)

kelly said...

I'm thankful for a roof over my head:) Despite the messy interior from renovations and lack of order, I remind myself that this is so much more than most of the world has. I need to start being more grateful, for I am blessed with much.

Congrats on your 100th post! Today I woke up grateful that we were planning to stay indoors and have a family day. It's cold in Chicagoland today and right now it's snowing! We had a mini Thanksgiving meal with just my husband, 7 year old son, and myself. It was wonderful. I have a lot to be grateful about.

Maggie said...

I was just thinking today that I'm grateful for my health. I was walking somewhere this afternoon, trying to get there in a hurry. I walked past an elderly man walking slowly w/a cane & remember thinking that I'm thankful for my long healthy legs that can take me somewhere quickly.

Happy 100th post!

These days I am most grateful for my very best friend that I know since the first day of Kindergarten. We were 4 then and am 23 now. She moved from Germany to the USA 8 months ago, and I´ve been missing her so much. Since two weeks now, I am visiting her in Virginia and we are having the best of times. I am very grateful to have such a wonderful friend. Even without meeting or even talking much, we know each other like always before!

And I´m so grateful about my sweet boyfriend. He´s the very very best on earth and in space.

Jennifer said...

Heather said...

Congrats on the 100th post... very exciting. I have to say that I am grateful for my health. I have a wonderful friend who is fighting stage 3 breast cancer right now and while I am so sad for her and scared I am glad I am not the one facing it. The 15th was my 40th birthday and I have to say I feel better now than I have in years!!

That Girl Ang said...

I am literally happy to still be alive. There were many times in my life where I didn't think I'd last this long.

Brandi said...

Congrats on your 100th post!!

I'd have to say that I'm most grateful to be an auntie. My niece and nephew never fail to make me smile - I love their little faces, and every smile they give me makes me grateful and all mushy.

Dandee said...

Christy said...

My little boy. Who in the middle of the night last night woke me up just to say "I love you momma" & then went back to his room & went to sleep. No explination for the sudden burst of love, not sure if he just wanted my reassurance or had a bad dream, but he made my day.
