Let the Wild Rumpus Start

As a child, I was never really a big fan of Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are. I don't know if I was too sensitive or imaginative or what, but I found it scary. Nonetheless, the idea of creating my own "wild rumpus" sounds like fun. Especially if I'm looking for a way to celebrate my 500th blog post.

Yes, folks, it's true. This is post 500. I've finally gotten a high enough count that I would have to look up the roman numeral to cover it (in fact, I did: it's "D").

To keep my rumpusing on the wild side, I am hosting a secret giveaway! I don't actually know what I should give away, so to enter, you need to leave a comment recommending a fabulous, but, ya know, smallish, prize that you would like to win. As always, you'll get an extra entry for linking to this giveaway on your own blog (leave me a second comment if you do this, please). I will choose one winner at random from among those prizes I can accommodate. Comments will close on my blogiversary, Friday October 16th at 11:59 PM CDT, and I'll announce the winner the following week.

Good luck!


  1. A great prize to win would be a cute crochet bucket hat for an 8 month old girl. :)

  2. How about a pedicure from Stewarts school? Since you are only 25 miles from me and my birthday is coming up AND I had to go all the way to Alaska via Scribbit to find you...small world.

  3. I would love to win something handmade.Blessings!

  4. Hi, I found you at Scribbit; we both picked the same day for snow.

    I have enjoyed spending time on your blog today. Lots of fun, encouragement and thoughtful posts.

    I think a package of cool cupcake papers would be a neat prize to win. I never buy them.I stick with the pastel pack because it's cheaper.

  5. Thank you for entering. Comments for this post are now closed.
