We Love Our Followers!

We have been members of Bloggerland for just over a month. We are thrilled to see we now have 101 Followers! Thank You for your support! We have loved getting to know fellow bloggers from across the globe. Being here with you all make our world seem small but wonderfully diverse! Thanks for your warm welcome!! I share the following story to commemorate how grand and diverse 101 can really be!

Four years ago while shopping at the local dollar store, I found Corning brand ramekins. I have seen sets of 4 ramekins go for up to $13. So paying $1 each was a great deal in my opinion. I called on my good friends, AmberLou and Lorie and told them of the great find. They made a quick trip to the store to pick up several as well.

My daughter, Amanda, was recently engaged and verbally voiced her concern over our getting excited over some “bowls”. I told her they were versatile and quite handy in a home. She rolled her eyes!

So as wedding planning came about, for Amanda’s bridal shower, I bought her a set of 6 ramekins and made a little booklet listing 101 things to do with a ramekin. She loved it! She loves her ramekins and can see the error of her young ways.
