three hundred...

I can't believe it. Today is my 300th post. I also talked with my accountant yesterday.....and unfortunately....the "soiree" that i wanted to throw.....and invite you all to......was nixed.

The accountant took a look at the bottom line and pretty much told me......

no.can.do.

I mean...can you imagine......all of us......mingling around my backyard.....

with pastries being handed around....

wine and chilled Bellini's being served.....

a small jazz band in the corner.....

yup......

it all got thrown out the door.

I even had all the invitations labeled and stamped...

all ready to be picked up by my famous mailman....

and i even had a babysitter all lined up for the wee one's....

but it all came down to....

the bottom line.


I am thankful.

I am thankful....for having a husband that let's me be myself....

that doesn't care that i'm always asking ...and talking....and let's the wheels in my head go

round and round....

he let's me make our home into a place that let's my creativity blossom...

a place where he drinks his beer on white slip covered sofa's.
{i won't mention the feet on my pretty white painted table...}




I am thankful......

i am thankful that i have a sensitive...beautiful ....smart...and pleasure seeking boy named Mason.






I am thankful..

i am thankful to have a beautiful...outgoing....strongwilled....girl named Lola....

i am thankful to have a ..stop you in your tracks.....smiling....loving.....could never do any wrong

little boy named Fin.

I am thankful.

I am also thankful to have you......

you....who tell me i'm normal when i'm pulling my hair out......

you....who listen to me talk nonstop about the little things....

you...who encourage me....

you....who shop with me....

you...and you....and you.

Well......

so we might not be having a huge backyard...wine drinking party......but we can have a little giveaway....

that, we can have.

The details.The scoop. The giveaway.

$150 gift card to Anthro....to buy your own pair of swanky shoe's. {one lucky winner}

$100 package from my little shop...Lola b's {one lucky winner}

$50 restaurant gift card {one lucky winner}

and a surprise little something for someone {oh..it'll be good..}

All you have to do....is leave a comment.

If you want to blog about this giveaway....i will double your name.

If you want to add yourself as a follower...i will double your name again.

you do not need to have a blog to enter....just comment with your email address.
Thank you girlies....
thank you.

{comments are CLOSED......winner will be picked the week of the 28th}

What a beautiful thought that party is though.
I could see it forming in my head as you described it.
Would have been lovely.

But I will indeed take a giveaway. That I will. :)


And what a beautiful thankful list.
I have to remember more often to think of what I'm thankful for. Reminds you of all the blessings and makes you less likely to be upset about the little nonsense things.

Julie said...

300 posts! Wow! No soiree? What a bummer!

I am so thankful to have found your blog! You are a highlight of my day. :)

When I do another post I'll mention your giveaway although I'm pretty sure everyone that reads my blog reads yours.

xoxoxox

Julie Harward said...

I can't even imagine 300 posts! But then I'm a beginner with a l-o-n-g way to go. I do love that I've found your sweet blog and have added it to my blog list...keep them coming sweet sister..and oh how I wish we could get together for that party. So happy for you and your's :D

I am a devoted reader! I check you every day on my Google Reader. Can I just leave my name for now, and e-mail you my e-mail address later if I win (Which I porbably won't because I never win anything. I'll give it a shot, anyway. Just call me the eternal optimist.)? My name is Ashley Huish. Thanks and congrats! You are so generous.

Pat said...

Kasey,
So much to be thankful for, who needs a party really. Every day I read your blog is like a party for me. You constantly amuse me with your humor, you make me laugh out loud with your uncanny ability to be find humor in the weirdest of things. What I love the best is that you are real, genuine, this is who I am, take or leave it. Congratulations on your 300th post and I can't wait to read the next 300. You're he best!

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

I am thankful that you share your life with all of us. That is what I love the most about blogging. It lets us all know that we are normal. Some just a little more than others. And you do have a lot of things to be thankful for. I would love to win any of the things that you are giving away. You are so generous. And you need to fire your accountant. He is such a downer. I want a soiree. That sounds so much more fun than a party.

LissyLou said...

Happy 300th!! heres to the next 300!! x

Yeah for you Miss Kasey! Number 300 is big news! Sounds like quite a party on your blog. We'll all close our eyes and imagine the back yard soiree............
"Hello Kasey, it's so nice to meet you in person!" "Thank you so much for inviting me! Your home is so beautiful. The food is delicious, the decor to die for." "Oh and I almost forgot....Where did you get those ♥shoes♥?!"

And a fabulous time was had by all. ;)

Simone said...

You don't have to put me in your giveaway because we don't even have Anthro here - I know, how is that even possible!! - but I just wanted to say that I think you are one fabulous girl.

There are some people in your life that you meet - in all kinds of circumstances - and you just think (or at least I do)....."I wish you lived next door to me because I know then that my life would be fuller/better/funnier/happier....just more in so many ways"......it's a secret award I give (just in my head, I never actually tell people).....you are one of those people....absolutely....imagine if I had you on one side and (Mimi Charmante) Kim on the other.....how heavenly that would be!!!!

Thank you....and congratulations on 300 posts :)

HOLY 131 comments!! I just wanted to stop by and say CONGRATULATIONS!!! And, I was thinking about you A LOT yesterday because we hacked Ash's hair off!! I remembered how hard the decision Lola made to grow out her hair was...I felt stronger knowing I wasn't the only one attached the vision I had of my child :)
