The journey of a thousand miles begins with...the perfect pair of shoes.

It’s my 100th post! And a give-away!

I can’t believe it!  100 posts!    100 times I’ve sat in front of my computer and written something.  Sometimes funny, sometimes reflective, sometimes helpful, sometimes showy offy, but always me.  I thank each and every one of you who have read and/or follow this blog and sent me encouraging emails or left sweet comments.  And to celebrate your super awesomeness (and you know you all are) I am doing my very first give-away!  Can you stand it?  I can’t!  Here’s what I’m giving away:

Just so you know, I had to hide this stuff from M and Indy.  Otherwise, they’d eat every bit of it and I’d have two sugar bombs waiting bouncing around my house waiting to explode.  Here’s what included:

1 package of ORIGINAL Gummi Goldbaren (gummy bears)

1 package of Happy Cherrie gummies (cause who can resist something called Happy Cherries?)

1 box Merci chocolates (so good you’ll have to slap someone.  seriously)

1 box Afrika cookies (OMG.  ‘nuff said)

1 box Yogurette chocolate covered strawberry bars (I really don’t want to give these up)

1 package Ritter samplers (various kinds of mini candy bars)

1 cute little German thermometer (Indy picked this out)

1 lovely little table doily type of thing.  I don’t know what else to call it.  It measures 11x21 inches and is decorated with pink and white flowers.  It’s from Kathe Wolfahrt.

BTW, the Gummis and the Happy Cherries are much tougher and chewier than the super sweet, soft gummies we’re used to. 

So, how do you win?  Leave me a comment telling me how wonderful I am.  No, really, just a comment will do.  If you’re a follower and you leave a comment you’ll get 2 entries (make sure you tell me you’re a follower in your comment).  I’ll leave it open until Saturday and announce a winner on Monday. 

Thanks again for being so loyal and giving me such awesome feedback.  The blogging community is truly awesome and unique.  People from all walks of life and all over the world can be friends.  I recently discovered someone I like very much is a Brewers fan.  I still like her though.  :)  Good luck!

What a fun giveaway! I am in Eastern Europe with a group of students and leaders - when I passed through Hberg I thought of you and wondered which stairwell was yours! :)

Happy 100th post day! I'm a follower!!

Joy said...

Hoooooray for 100 posts about you!!! Don't you just love blogging? And, of course, who doesn't love a great giveaway. My hubby got spoiled with German gummies; he won't eat American ones. He'd make me enter a thousand times if you had his favorite printzen rolle's in there.
I just might have to pick some up for him when I come to stay with you and play home designer. ;~)

First of all, thanks to your husband for his service!! And wow, the candy looks good. Nothing like chocolate from overseas...it just tastes better!

Becca said...

Hooray for 100! I'm a follower and I'd love to win the candy. We're PCSing to Germany in June (ACK! It's April!) and my kids would get such a kick out of a "taste" of what they'll be moving to.

Susie Q said...

Congratulations on 100! I love your blogs from Germany, and learning the country as you do. Cabinet Man's family is German...and so seriously anal that they can trace the family back to something like 2 AD...and somewhere in Germany there is a village named after them. I'm just a mutt ;D

And thank you for your enthusiasm as a Army wife from an Army mom...still weird to say that...

Congratulations on the 100th post. Looking at the giveaway goodies kinda feels like "home." We were stationed in Germany 10 years ago. We loved it and miss it. There are days when I would kill for a Kinderegg...ha. Laura
