this is your 100th post.

It really is my 100th post. And I’m so overthinking it, that I haven’t been able to post anything for 3 days. I feel like it needs to be awesome – the awesomest post yet! But I can’t meet my own expectations. I’ve started this post about 20 times now – and subsequently deleted each one deeming it un-onehundred-worthy. Well, I give up. I’ll never write again at this rate, so I might as well just get through 100 and be done with it.

he can relate.

I thought about giving away a prize – but what? And how? I could give away a copy of the book…but to who – the 100th caller? That would mean I’d have to give out my phone number and actually have to talk to someone (other than my mom) on the phone, which is something I haven’t done in about 5 years. So that’s out.

I still could give away a prize…but what? I want to thank the people who made 100 posts possible by giving something back. What do you want, people? I got it! Suggest a prize. Leave a comment, and suggest what you’d like to win. I’ll pick a winner out of the comments, and give that person their dream prize. Remember, keeping the prize within reason = a higher probabality of you winning. I can’t make you a cupcake husband or anything. If I could do that, don’t you think I would have already?

So, in addition to the create-a-prize contest I just thought of,  how ’bout celebrating the blog itself with a top 5 posts list. The list was carefully selected, based entirely on whatever ones I liked the best.  I never claimed to be running a democracy here.

So, without further adieu, here are the Top 5 Small Indulgences posts, out of 100, starting with #5:

5.cupcakes in bloom. 


These were some of my favorite cupcakes to make, and this post got a lot of positive feedback – so this was actually more like a “reader’s choice.


4. It’s peanut butter apple time.


I was really proud of this cupcake invention – still one of my best (possibly THE best).


3. just shoot me.

I just want to again remind everyone to let their inner fabulous shine through. (this photo did not appear in the original post, but serves as a reminder that one can be fabulous at any age).


2. meet the cupcakes.


And in the end, the cupcakes you bake, are equal to the love you make. Or something like that..

And my number one post out of 100 is…….

1. All I Really Need to Know I Learned this Summer.


This just about sums up why I even started the blog to begin with: the joy baking, writing, and all of you have brought into my life can’t be expressed in words – but I had to try. 🙂

So thanks again for the memories. I think I’ll celebrate by making a cake.

And don’t forget to suggest your prize!!  You could be the lucky winner of whatever you want to win!

  2. I’d like my prize to be a confectionary delight in the shape of YKW and FAS so we can break them apart together….. “Why can’t you be happy for me and then go home and talk about me behind my back like a normal person?”
