100th Post

On May 2, I started this blog and in the 3 months that are behind me, I have gotten seriously addicted to 'blogging'.  Before I started I never really got the 'hype'.  Afterall, why would anyone expose themselves so much to the outside world by writing about family, life and themselves?  In the past 3 months that attitude has changed: blogging (for me) is documenting my journey in raising our 2 boys. The ups and downs, the highs and lows.  It's also an outlet, both emotionally and creatively.  I am still in search of my personal 'writing style' and though I know what I want that to be, I am still working on perfecting it and really making it 'my own'.  And finally, blogging has allowed me to get to know some amazing people.  It's a great way to socialize, give and receive feedback, exchange ideas and create online friendships.  I look forward to some day be able to stick out my hand and say "I'm Marieke (aka HRH Mommy), it's so nice to finally meet you (in person)."

I have thought about what to write or do for my 100th post.  After all, it is the 100th.  A bit of a milestone, ain't it?  Well, instead of sweating over 100 things about me, or whatnot, I have decided to go through my blog so far and highlight some of my favorite posts.  They are either my favorite because of tone, content, or simply because they mean a lot to me.

May 2 - Laughter
May 13 - Living In The Moment
M For Mommy
"Ik hou van je"
The Diaper Fairy
Enjoy Them, They Grow Up So Fast

Finally, I am honored to accept 3 awards that I've been given recently by 3 women.

The "I heart your blog" award was created and given to me by Emily at Family and Life in Las Vegas.  Thank you so much Emily!  You're awesome!  I really appreciate your returning visits, comments and support.  I am supposed to pass it on to bloggers that have made my day or helped me out.  That would be:
Joey at Big Teeth and Clouds
Land of Mama Grits
Kate at Mommy Monologues
Lauren at That 22-yr Old Housewife
TV at TV's Take

Thank you TV at TV's Take for the Foxy Mama award.  How fun and what a compliment!  I would like to pass this one on to:

And last but not least, I received the Versatile Blogger award from both Jinnia Low and My Side of Life.  Thank you ladies so very much for the recognition.  I would like to pass this one on to a few new blogs that I have recently discovered:
And This Little Mommy Stayed Home
Beat Until Fluffy
Mommyhood: Next Right

And now, the 7 things about me:
1. I cannot sleep in a bed that is not made.
2. I cannot stand unattached, wet hair (like the hair in the drain)
3. I am always more tired in the morning, after I sleep, then I am in the evening before I go to bed.
4. I don't like to read, and yet I am sooo looking forward to reading this book I bought for my Mom's Weekend out (which is next week): "Like Water For Chocolate".
5. My husband got me hooked on milkshakes as comfort food.
6. David and I got married on the spot where he proposed: Point Dume, Malibu.
7. I really, really want to sit down and watch the finale of So You Think You Can Dance.

There is only 1 more thing to say: on to the 200th post I go!!
