Awesome Piles Of Awesomeness

As you can tell from the title of this post, there are wonderful things happening today.

First, thanks to Tessa for awarding me the Cherry On Top blog award. Her blog is beautiful and fun and not to be missed. You should definitely check it out.

I am now supposed to answer this question:

If you had the chance to go back and change one thing in your life, would you, and what would it be?

My answer: I would most definitely have stayed in college and finished my degree. Oh, there are lots of legitimate excuses I could give for why I didn't, but they are still just excuses. At the time, I assumed I couldn't be a Mom and work full time and go to school too. Back then I hadn't yet realized how strong I was. Now I know if I would have put my mind to it, I could have finished. Sure it might have taken me a little longer than the average student, but I could have done it. I try to pass that attitude along to my kids.

I also wanted to pass along a fantastic contest that Beth Revis is having on her blog. Just write about an awesome adventure you've had and link to your post on her blog. The winner gets a signed and doodled ARC of  her highly anticipated novel Across The Universe. Yes, I said doodled. Isn't that cool?

Believe me when I say you should want this one. Have you read the first chapter?

Last, but certainly not least...drumroll...I have reached 100 followers! Please know that I love each and every one of you.  I am so thankful that you choose to spend a little bit of your time with me now and then. The people I've met in the writing/blogging community are amazing and supportive and wonderful.

A giveaway is forthcoming as soon as I decide on a fantabulous prize.

Change just one thing? That would be a long list to choose from.

Madeleine said...

Hmmmm, yes I wonder what I would change, being Thrusdays's child (far to go) and Pisces (always swimming upstream) I'd change my ability to makwe things happen more quickly/successfully. LOL! Love you blog. :O)

RM, I had more than one thing I could have chosen, I just picked the biggest.

Madeleine, thanks for stopping by and following, and I must return the compliment. Love your blog as well.

Congrats on 100!

Now that's a beautiful round number of followers! Well done! And your latest blog award is beautiful and matches your blog perfectly. When we extra specially wanted to ask for something as kids we'd say "Pretty please with a cherry on top?" Reminds me of lazy summer afternoons and icecream sundaes...

Amie Kaufman said...

One hundred, well done! Looking forward to more posts, and a hundred more followers!

I wonder if I show up in that count? I subscribe via google reader--I'm not sure if that kind of thing registers as a follower?

Elana Johnson said...

It's WOW Wednesday! Great stuff here too!

Congrats on 100!

Congrats on the adorable award and the 100 followers milestone! :-)

Lisa Potts said...

Thanks for stopping by and for all of the congrats!

Amie, I don't think it does count toward number of followers but that's OK. I'm just glad you enjoy the blog and stop by to comment.

If only we knew then what we know now.

Congratulations on your award.

I want to win Beth's ARC so bad. I hope I luck out this time!
