Celebrate Rachael's 100th Blog! Come on and Party!

Rachael who is from Auckland, New Zealand and who's blog is The Rose Room, is having a "its nice to meet you, lets get to know each other a bit better" kind of party to celebrate her 100th Blog Posting.

A party that is going to run for 100 hours and at the end of the 100 hours and then Rachael will announce the prize winners.

As a way to get to know each better, she thought it would be fun if we showed where we blog from (thanks a lot Rachael!) and then answered 10 questions about ourselves.

Okay, this is my desk in that is up against the back wall in our living room. You can see my decor style, "Clutter, On Clutter" and a few of the pieces of my vintage pottery collection.
Ok, so here are my answers to the 10 questions.

Relationship: Divorced after 18 years and "living in sin" with Earl for 11 years now.

Children: Jeremy - 31 on Monday, Chad -28, Jesse -27, Daniel -21, Lexie -17, Ezie -9,
Mallory - 7 and finally my little Jace -2.

Pets: None, don't you think I have enough kids??? We haven't had any in a year or so after our long time bird friend, "Peanut" died last year and our long time goldfish, "Elmo" died the year before that.

Age: 46 - Damn, I'm getting old!!

Star Sign: Virgo

Fave Food: Ice Cream, I guess that explains the weight problem, huh?

Fave Drink: Wal-Marts Carbonated Flavored Waters and Icy Cold Michelob Ultra Light Beer

House Decor Style: Fisher Price and Craft Supplies, I guess you could best describe it at
"Clutter, on Clutter"- they are both in every room of my house!

Collections: Angels, Vintage Hankies, Vintage pottery and I'm just starting Vintage Head Vases.

How Did You Get Into Blogging: Just reading other people's blogs and in the beginning it was more a form of therapy, I was in a rather depressed stage. After the OWOH Giveaway 2008 I really got into the whole blogging thing. I discovered so many amazing woman out there who were kind of like me, and my blog went from depressing to whatever it is now.

Rachael has the champagne and is ready to celebrate! She is giving away some wonderful prizes so if you would like to join Rachael's party just go to The Rose Room and sign up. Party!!

Hi Sherry, thanks for stopping by my blog today, it has been nice getting to know you. I was afraid that I would check your blog and find out that you are an old girl, just like me. I don't know a single Sherry that is under 45 that spells her name any other way. Any S-h-e-r-r-y has got to be 40+, can you prove me wrong. I don't mean to call you an old girl, 'cause I am older than you, but you are 40+, so if my theory is correct, we are both old girls. Please don't hate me! Just the facts!
