100th post!

WOW I can not believe I made it this far.  
Less then a year ago I started this blog.  
I had thrown the idea around for a while but HAD NO CLUE HOW TO DO IT!!!!  
I still don't know everything {actually I don't know 1/2 of it}  
But I have enjoyed the whole process.

I have really enjoyed connecting with my readers and fellow bloggers.

So what do I write about on my 100th post???
It should be really great, huh?
Something special!
Something worthy of 100th post status.
Well sorry to disappoint you but I am at a loss...
So that means you are going to get some random rambling from me.....
  • I am super excited I am heading back to school this year weighing 20+ lbs less then I did at the end of the school year. {I am a substitute teacher}
  • I am planning a joint birthday party for the cowgirls this Fall.   Their birthdays are a little over a month apart.  I love Fall so we are doing a fall themed harvest party.  We planted pumpkins and they are getting big and we have a ton so we will do a pumpkin carving party!  I am sure there will be a post or 2 about the party.
  • My 4 year old cowgirl took these pictures.  Not to bad for a 4 year old huh?
  • I am addicted to Instagram! Do you follow me? If not you should at chores_chandeliers
  • Heck you should follow me on Facebook too :)
  • S {my step son} is leaving tomorrow to head back to his moms for school.  It is sad to see him go.  We have had a great summer.  He is a great big brother, the cowgirls will miss him a lot {So will the hubs and I!!!!}.  He is such a hard worker and has been such a huge help out here this summer!!! 
  • I am working on a new blog layout for my 1 year blog anniversary (October). It is so hard to come up with a great layout.  There are so many fun ones out there. Trying to find the one that represents me and my blog is hard, since I am a little bit of everything.  Not one set direction.
  • I am excited to start selling stuff at craft shows! {blog post to come with some of my 'goods'} I have been wanting to for quite some time but I never have the nerve to just do it.  Recently a friend asked me to do a booth at a local show.  That was the nudge I needed.  Now time to start producing!!!  *excited*
  • Yesterday I posted that I had been waiting since Spring for my wooden screen door to be installed, well last night the hubs came home and HUNG the door!  I LOVE IT!!!  It is not complete still but it is UP! *success* {here I am posing next to the screen door. Sorry it doesn't show more of the door but like I said the 4 year old cowgirl took the picture}
What was your favorite thing about the blog so far?  
What do you want to see more of?


  1. Congrats on 100! :) I just posted my 50th this week...I'm halfway there! lol Can't wait to see what you'll be selling - if its a success you should look at listing stuff on Etsy for your readers. (wink wink)

  2. Happy 100th!!! I adore your blog...and you:)

  3. Congrats on 100!! Great pics your cowgirl took. Love the headband. And WAY TO GO on the 20 pounds! That is awesome. Love the wreaths on the shutters...Love your blog.

    1. Thank you, She did do a good job! I was impressed!

      And thank you about the 20lbs! I have a lot more to lose but it will happen and I am celebrating my current success not focusing on what is left to lose!

      I am so glad you like the wreathes on the shutters! They were so fun to do!

  4. Yay 100!! That's awesome. Btw, LOVE that wooden screen door, so jealous! Where did you find it/how did you make it?! You look amazing, Suzi! =)

    1. Thank you but I can not take any credit other then staining it. We bought it at the local Lumber Yard (Mead Lumber). It had to be ordered but was it quick, like less then a week. It was right around $100. I know you can buy them cheaper at Menards (or other places like that) but the quality is not as good (a lot thinner) and I would worry that it would warp bad since it is wood :)

  5. Congratulations on your 100th post!! I can really identify with you and your blog (we have lots in common!) I love the new screen door!! Keep up the great work :)

    1. Awe thanks! I love your blog too.
      You inspire me to sew more and I love your style!

  6. Congrats on your 100th post!!! I am so glad you found my blog! I love yours and love following you!!!
