Celllllll-e-brate Good Times, C'MON!

I'm very pleased to report that I've peaked the first blogging milestone and come over the other side to 100+ followers - woo hoo!  A special thanks to ALL of you who've spent a little time visiting my blog, given me awards, linked to my blog for one reason or another, and shown me some blogosphere love.  I know I wouldn't be here without you ~ :)

Now, you might want to shade your eyes as I throw a little of this:



And don't laugh too hard as you imagine me doing this:



Now - for the good stuff!!!  FREE STUFF!!  Free = good!  Blogging has really motivated me to write, write, and write a little more (oh, and also read of course).  This is a great community to be in.  And since 2011 is the year of 100+ and more to come - here's what I'd like to do....  I want to give 4 lucky blogging friends a prize - please let me order/pre-order either the 2011 Debut Author book of your choice OR any book by one of my blogging buddies!!  Might I make a few suggestions:





(these are just a very few suggestions - feel free to pick any debut you want.  And if you have a book I need to list here, let me know!!)

And, because I know that you'll have to wait for some of these - in the mean time, the same 4 lucky blogging friends will get a special treat all the way from the home state - UT!!  (*trust me - I'll pick out something uniquely utah)

And ALL you need to do is 1. Be a follower AND 2. Comment (side-bars and blog shout outs appreciated, but not necessary) on this post by Feb. 13th (Happy bday dad!) and I'll announce the lucky winners on Valentine's Day!  Why 2/14?  Because, as Charlie would say "I'm in smit."  (bonus points if you can tell me where the quote comes from...)  Yes, I'm in smit with blogging.  And I hope you'll celebrate with me!!  I look forward to many more years of getting to know some great people through their wonderfully written words.  :)  Happy Sunday!

Sounds like a great way to celebrate.

Ah ha! Did you marry an axe murderer? LOL!

CONGRATULATIONS again and yes I can certainly imagine you doing the jig. Woo Woo!
(I'm keen to read 'The Room' by Emma Donoghue, but wouldn't mind any of those you've mentioned either). :O)

So I Married An Axe Murderer is one of my favorite movies ever, and I'm almost ashamed of how much of it I have memorized :) Charlie MacKenzie rocks!!

Congrats on the 100 followers! I would LOVE to win this contest (I already know which book I would pick, even though it's incredibly hard to choose between the ones you listed).
