98...99...100! MERRY SITSMAS! Tipsy Tuesday!

Hello my bloggy friends!

I have a few things to ruminate about...
~ I can't believe that I have reached the much thought about first bloggy milestone! 100 posts! Now if I can get to 100 followers I will be in hog blog heaven!

~ Why do I only have 70 followers today? :( Someone left the party. I will miss you number 71... but if you want to leave before cake... FINE! :oP~

~ My 100th post coincides with Merry SITSmas... because it's the right thing to do! They are part of what kept me motivated to keep going... because of YOU my friends and followers who are kind enough to comment often and kindly. If you are a commenter and a SITS member - I LOVE YOU! WILL YOU MARRY ME?! Wait... I'm pretty sure that's not legal for A LOT of reasons - cause I'm already married and here in CA it's still illegal for women to marry women. Says so in the state constitution. I take it back. (I do love you, in a I-don't-really-know-you sorta way).

This was Christmas morning 2 years ago... my son was ready to open the presents...
my daughter was so excited she was ready for a hug!

~ Today is Tuesday which makes it TIPSY TUESDAY!
I was wracking my brain trying to figure out something witty, humorous and 100th post worthy... nope.  I got nothing.

Here are my top five tips for living a "live, laugh, love life"!
5. Take each day one at a time! I am not always good at doing this, but I am trying!  If you can look at each day and it's troubles, without piling yesterday's burdens and tomorrow's worries, you are already ahead.
4. Stop to look at nature.  This is one I regularly do well.  The beauty of the trees and flowers should not be lost on you.  It will help you slow down and breathe.

3. Live life like you are dying.  So cheerful, no?  How would you live if you had just 30 days to live?  That is how you should live every day... starting today!
2. Give hugs, say I love you, and make-out with your significant other.  These are all things we get lax on.  Take 30 seconds and give a long squeeze and meaningful kiss... it will jump start your day!

1.  Laugh.  Do what you need to to laugh.  Read funny blogs (look at my Bloggy friends list... there are a couple there!), find humor in your children, what you read, what you see...  I am an obnoxious person because I am always randomly laughing... because the things I think or the irony I see tickles me... laughing all the time is good for the mind, body and soul... not to mention keeps you smiling! 

THERE.  Merry SITSmas! Hope the new visitors enjoyed this random collection of things... follow me and I'll follow you.

PS - THANK YOU if you are a follower!  I find an un-natural amount of affirmation from you, please believe me, clicking that button... makes a difference! :)
