500 Posts and Giveaway

Link
The Drama Queen has been after me all month to do something special for my 500th post. And for the life of me, I can't think of anything special to write.  I thought about trying to write 500 random facts about my life, but that task seemed totally insurmountable. Then I thought maybe I could just write 50 and that would work. But then I remembered how hard it was to just come up with 11 for that blog award my awesome friends gave me.


So I'm going to do another Tupperware giveaway. It will be a surprise package worth $50.0 (notice I left off that second zero so it looks like 500?) and the rules are easy. Just leave me a comment with your favorite number between 1 and 500. I have already written mine down and if yours is the same, you win! If not, the number closest will win.

Summon all your psychic powers and good luck!


Drama Queen just surprised me with this cute little Pueblo figurine.  It's a mother telling a story to her twelve (yes, twelve!) children as they climb all over her and each other.  (Not that that ever happens around here..)  The figure has a little tag on it that talks about how central story-telling was in the Pueblo culture.  Story-telling has always been part of our family but we've all noticed how much more we've started to remember as we sit down to share. 

That's just one of the things I love about blogging.

(Contest ends at midnight, June 21.) Oh, hey, extra entry if you pass along the Dog Walker's wish for an audience with the President. Tweet it, Facebook it, or post it on your blog...just let me know and then pick a second number. (You can't blame me for trying...)

I was going to leave a comment with 500 words in it but then I realized that I didn't feel like typing 500 words.
My favorite number is 42 because it is the answer to life, the universe and everything.

When I was 7 I was playing an arcade game while we were waiting to get checked into our condo that we were going to stay at for the long weekend. I just so happened to get 7th place on that arcade game. I was pretty excited. Our number of our condo was 7. You guessed it my number will be 7 for this game too.
