Happy 200 to you!!! My very next post is my 200 too! I found your blog when Monica of Lick the Bowl Good posted your great recipe for the bbq chicken in the crockpot. I've made that recipe a ton of times and love how easy it is. Love the giveaway!

Hey Lissa! I don't actually remember how I first read you but I am guessing it was from the All Recipes request forum, because that is how I started this whole thing too! : )
Congrats on your 200th! You are a MUCH better poster than I am! I don't even know how many I have done... but now I want to go check! : )
Happy New Year!!

thamesarino said...

ok I just went to check and I only have 77... and a good portion of those are just in draft form!! : )(I got too lazy to actually count how many without the drafts!!)
But I looked and I think that it is funny that you and I posted our first blogs on the same day! : )

Happy 200! I came across your blog while "blog-hopping" ... back in early September. The first blog post I read was about the salt & sugar scrubs you made! I've been a happier follower ever since. :o)

Chicago Mom said...

Congrats Lisaloo.. I remember finding your blog via willoughby, I believe the post was about children driving you nuts, I remember becuz I told you about how mine hid my broccoli out in the front yard after a long shopping trip.

Monica H said...

I've been reading you for a while now. I think I fould your blog because you commented on mine and you're so sweet so I kept coming back :-) I really don't remember which post it was though.

Happy 200th post Lissaloo!

Holly said...

Woo-whooo...200 posts! I am not sure how I found you...I think you found me, and then I found you. Whichever way it happened, I am SO HAPPY I found you!!!!

I love these quote, especially the one about children watching you by Fulghum.

That's funny I have about 5 posts with 0 comments...and I remember not knowing what to do when I finally had a comment!

Your giveaway looks fantastic!

Happy New Year!
Holly

You visited my blog and started following. I returned the favor and the first post was a recipe that I don't remember. I think it was a soup recipe.

Lissaloo! Your blog is always an enjoyable read. We were buddies from back in the AR exchange days and I gave you some tips on blogging before you started. I believe your blog was first before the little group of AR peeps got to blogging. Anyway, cool giveaway and congrats on 200.

Thank you!!!
