1000 posts! You know what that means...

Hey, it's me! Adam took the pic the other night as I made some long-awaited chocolate fudge cake. My belly's getting significant.

Secondly, Phillip and I made these lemon cranberry muffins last night. They were (yes, were - we did share some, though) delicious. And the pictures were fun to take. I learned a lesson about ISO settings, which was kind of fun, too. Can you tell I'm excited? I get all rambly when I am. Speaking of rambly, I know that I've been posting a LOT about food lately. I am hungry all of the time, and food tastes SO good. I had forgotten how amazing it is when you're pregnant. Something connected to the heightened sense of smell, I'm sure. Mmmm.

On to even more fun...

What craziness! 1000 posts. You would think that I had something to say! The 1000 posts are from here and Frenchy's Finds combined. (As a side note about something that's been driving me crazy since then, but I don't know how to fix it: for some reason, when I copied those posts over here and moved to my new bloggy home, the search bar in the upper left corner of the blog doesn't seem to work at searching those older posts; just the ones originally published here. Strange, but true! That's why some of my links to previous posts take you back to the old blog.)

Giveaway goodness: Because I have so much fun blogging, because I'm feeling generous, because I won something yesterday*, and of course because this is post #1000, I'll share the love with a little giveaway! Two lucky winners will each receive three bars of my gorgeous soaps. Depending on what I have on hand after I get some orders together, you may even have some choice in the matter! I'll draw the winners from the comments on this post on Sunday, around noon Atlantic time. I would love to hear what you like best about my blog, so be sure to mention that in your comment. Tell all of your friends!

Hope you're having a lovely week!

*I've mentioned a million times how much I listen to Martha's Sirius channel when I'm driving for work. Last year, when Martha Stewart's Cooking School was released, I called in to one of the shows, in the hopes of winning a copy. And I did. Last week, I called a show to both ask about using yogourt in soups and also with the hopes of winning a copy of Dinner at Home, Martha's newest book. They called yesterday, and I won! Yipeeeee! Now if I could just put that luck to work at winning the lottery.

  7. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaw! You look so cute! I have to say that my favorite part about this blog so far (I've only been following you in my reader for the past few weeks!) are the recipes that you post and the photographs that you take. Those muffins look delish, by the way. =)

    I like the photos and the recipes too. But what I like best is that each time I read one of your posts, I feel like we sat down for a cup of tea and a quick chat. They always cheer me right up!
