Well,I just have to say that I COMPLETELY enjoyed reading your
100th post,even though I already knew everything on there."That's what friends are for".Um yeah that was sung!It is a safe bet that I will never have to do one of those because I will never have a 100th post!

Alana said...

Your welcome ;-) I love comments, too.

Congrats on your 100th post!

Also gave up on piano too soon and regret it. I actually had to go back to taking lessons in late high school and college so that I could be a music major and it was MUCH harder being older. Make those kiddos stick to it ;-)

I'm Tara. said...

Alana is faithful, isn't she??

I love your photo wall -- I LOVE the pose you have them all doing!! 95-100 made me laugh -- that's something I would do to stretch it out.

Congrats on your 100th post!! I'm so enjoying getting to "know you". Oh - and feel free to join in on the ol' sidebar weightloss thing. :)

Alana said...

Wow! A picture with all three children facing forward and smiling. You've arrived! And there is hope for me ;-)
