Friend Makin' Monday and 100th post giveaway!

I just love Mondays! If you've never heard of Friend Makin' Monday, go to Kasey's to read all the rules and join in! I have met some of my best bloggy friends through FMM!

This week's task is to complete the following tag:

5 Senses Tag

We are to list 4 things we love, and one thing we dislike, for each sense.
Like: 1. Pot roast in the oven! 2. Sunkissed Citrus Scentsy, and Melon Medley from the Walmart knock-off scents! 3. rubbing alcohol (I know, I need help) 4. along those same lines...nail polish and nail polish remover.
Dislike: coffee
Like: 1. The click, click of the keyboard beneath my fingers! 2. back massage from my husband - he has magic hands! 3. an ice cold soda can on the back of my neck on a hot summer day! 4.Hot showers
Dislike: Hot glue on my fingertips! Occupational hazard for me!
1. My baby (okay she's 2 now!) whispering "secrets" in my ear. 2. My kiddo's giggles. 3. My husband's singing. He has a very nice singing voice. 4. Dennis Haysbert's voice. You know he was the President in the early seasons of 24, now he's "Snake Doc" on The Unit, and the spokesman for Allstate Insurance. If you still don't know who I mean, go here and listen to his voice!
Dislike: whining!

Like: 1. Nachos! 2. Anything spicy 3. Dr. Pepper 4. chocolate chip cookies
Dislike: Lima beans
1. Sunset behind the mountains. 2. watching my children sleep. 3. spring flowers and their bright colors! 4. reading blogs!
Dislike: Seeing anyone in pain...physical or emotional.
What things do you like and dislike experiencing with your 5 senses?

Now, to take care of some business!

This is my 100th post! I can't believe it! I want you ladies to know how much your friendships have come to mean to me. I love hearing about your lives, getting advice, hearing your humorous stories, as well as your touching uplifting ones. I love this wonderful community of "sistahs" I have found!

To say "thank you", I'd like to keep with the tradition of givin' stuff away to celebrate my 100th post! Entering is simple...1 entry for commenting, 1 entry if you follow me, and 1 entry if you post about my giveaway! Just let me know what you do so I can give you the proper amount of entries!

What? you want to know what the prize is? Does it matter? It's FREE!

Okay, okay - I'll tell you.

Remember these fun FOREVER blocks I made for my sister in law? If you don't you should go check out last month's Mod Podge Mania. Speaking of MPM...don't forget that our next edition is THIS Thursday the 30th! Make sure to link up your projects!

Oh yeah, I was telling you about the giveaway. Here's a picture of the blocks:
The winner of this giveaway will receive a set of blocks made by me with any name or word you choose up to 7 letters. You also will have your choice between the following color schemes!

bright pink and apple green

hot pink, bright yellow and orange

Jewel (this is the color scheme in the FOREVER blocks)

I don't guarantee these exact paper designs, but the colors will be the same. The giveaway ends this Friday at 11:59 p.m. Mountain Standard Time. Good luck!

I enjoyed reading your answers. I can't believe I forgot to put Dr. Pepper on my list of tastes that I love! I live with one in my hand, and now they have the new Cherry Dr.Pepper!

Congratulations on #100!!! Yay!!! Here's to 100 more. :) I am a follower. I'll comment again after I've blogged about your Giveaway. Great giveaway!

btw, I couldn't possibly choose between Sawyer and Jack--that's why I put both on the list. ;)

Kasey said...

I'm a follower now and here is my comment of course!

Love the list! Should we be concerned that you are sniffing rubbing alcohol and fingernail polish remover? lol! have a great day!

LunaMoonbeam said... That's a crazy list!!! LOL

Can I just say, those blocks a GORGEOUS. I must have missed them the first time around. (I blog hop while nursing and my son is getting more...ACTIVE. Occasionally, he'll kick the computer at just the right moment, just when the cursor is over "Mark All As Read"...and there goes my reading list for the week!)

Congrats on 100 posts!!!!

Amanda said...

Congrats on your 100th post! That is great! Enjoyed your list esp. seeing your kids sleeping. Sweet:)I see your poll for best 80's rock band. My husband loves Van Halen so that made me smile!
Have a wonderful day,

I love the blocks and called my girlriend the minute I saw them to tell her all about them!

If I win I would totally choose the pink and lime with the word SUMMER!

Sassafras said...


i love, love, love lima beans!

my other half thinks im gross.


Mama Nut said...

I just love your list! It's been interesting to go throught the FMM links and finding out how much women have in common...but I thought your list was very original. And too bad about the burned glue gun fingers. Ouch...I hate that!

Amy said...

Happy 100th post. That is wonderful. I love lima beans but not whiners. I have the same problem with hot glue guns. Have a happy Monday.

Here is my one comment.

Jennifer said...

Yay for 100 posts! I'm craving nachos now, thanks a lot. :) It’s ok to enjoy the smell of rubbing alcohol, nail polish and nail polish remover. I happen to enjoy gasoline, car exhaust and brake cleaner. haha Maybe that’s weirder. (My dads a mechanic. It’s nostalgic. Yeah, that what I’m going with.)

BTW Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great day!

Vivienne @ the V Spot said...

Wait. You LIKE the smell of nail polish remover, but not the smell of coffee...? Honey, your nose is broken, call for help!
