Happy 400th!....WHAT??

Well well well....
could it be that the old Coastal Nest gal is 400 today?
youve got it!
Ive got another milestone under my belt, I cannot even believe I have written 400 posts.
What a long, strange trip its been!
I would like to thank the people who made this all happen, my family. (and you, fellow bloggers)

I will be having a little giveaway in celebration of this day, so...what I would like from you, if you choose, to enter this wonderous little game-giveaway, is to let me know what you are grateful for..
These are a few of mine.
I am grateful for-
the ability to sit here and write, albeit not anything fancy, world changing or even remotely interesting. I think its been one of the greatest things I have found to love in these 44 years of my life.
being able to look in the mirror and liking that blue eyed girl more every day.
having 2 sons and a hubby that know the importance of putting the toilet seat down.
having a best friend in my mamma.
knowing that what goes around comes around when it comes to my independant, strong willed daughter.
being totally willing and able to do anything I want, with the man of my dreams cheering me on.
these are just a few, I could go on and on..
...your turn, if you like..and as always..Thank you for your support :)

WOW! Happy 400th! Amazing! I am thankful for my bloggy girlfriends, real life friends, and family, a nice warm place to live, that we made it out of the fire alive...all of us, and that I can still laugh. Oh, and crab legs.

Congrats! I really enjoy reading your posts and getting a sense of what goes through your mind . . . I feel like I have gotten to know you all over again! Also you remind me to be happy and a life full kind of gal. I am thankful for all the usuals and like you looking in the mirror and being happy with who I see and proud to be shaping three amazing little people.

Congratulations on your 400th!
I'm thankful for: my family; my great hubby who will get out of bed and go downstairs to get me anything; our home in a nice neighbourhood; and my bloggy friends who provide me with so much inspiration and make me want to visit so many cool places across Canada and the US.

How good is that sweet girl! 400 posts from one of my very favourite Bloggers. I just love, love your fab list. As you know I'm not one for anything too serious, so I'm grateful that my Football team, those awesome Port Power boys won at least 8 games last Season. MOTH's mob won even less, so I escaped being absolutely crucified by my less than gloating Partner-In-Crime. Here's to 400 more awesome posts from the wonderful Coastal Nest.

simpledaisy said...

Well..happy 400th!!!

I am thankful for so would take me all day to write them:)

Just a little something from Judy said...

I finally had a few moments of time to visit your latest post and what a wonderful surprise I found...400th post, what an accomplishment. The only part of that which causes me sadness is that you don't realize how much others enjoy your blog. I always find it so interesting to pay visits here. Your sense of style and your decorating tastes are outstanding! I hope you have 400 more in the year ahead.

I would love to list a few things that I find myself thankful for on this cold Saturday afternoon;
~a healthy, strong body that allows me to get out of bed each morning and also allows me the privilege of keeping up with five little ones, ages 3 and under. They just left my house.

~Hot cups of coffee early, very early every single morning.(and sometimes evening too).

~Living with my best friend ever the last 35 years. This year we celebrate 35 years in April. He is truly one of my greatest blessings, along with each and every one of my family. has opened a world to me that I never dreamed could happen. I have met(via blogs), some of the most interesting people in this world.

You asked my friend, and I shared a few of the thankful reasons on my list. I am sure whatever you give away will be beautiful! Happy 400th!


Sheila said...

Wow..400 posts!! I remember when i first found Coastal Nest and spent hours in your archived posts getting to know you!

I'm grateful for lots of things. My family, having a few great friends that "get" me. Having a cozy home to weather life in. Discovering blogs and learning about people's customs and cultures all over the world and discovering that home and creativity mean so much to so many...which makes us all not so different after all.

Forgot to say what I am thankful for... sooo much really, especially in light of what has happened the last week - a wonderful husband and daughter and the rest of my family, a warm (cool in the summer) home, plenty of everything, good friends and health. And I agree w/ plo - crab legs. :)
