The Week in Numbers

Lots of special numbers flitted through my world this week:
Barry and I celebrated out eleventh anniversary together (not our wedding anniversary - that passed almost unnoticed in the midst of the moving frenzy a couple months ago).
I reached my ninety-ninth Original Intent post. Does it all end at one hundred? Should the hundredth one be special in some way? I'm still figuring that out. Got an opinion on the matter? Let me know.
My etsy shop reached its five hundredth sale. That one bowled me over. I am so appreciative of the support that my blog friends have provided me along the way that I figured it's time for a giveaway. And because I'm so touched by the kindness that brought me to five hundred sales, it's going to be a week-long giveaway.
Here's the deal. Each day this week, starting Monday, I'll post a photo of a different pair of sulu-design earrings. I've chosen my all-time favorite, super basic - but bold - pairs. If you like what you see, leave a number guess (based on the guidelines below) as your comment before midnight Pacific Standard time on the same day that the earrings are posted. I'll reveal the name of the person who guesses closest to my already randomly chosen number the following day, along with the next pair of earrings. I'll keep it up until Friday.

On Monday, choose a number between 1 and 100.
On Tuesday, choose a number between 101 and 200.
On Wednesday, choose a number between 201 and 300.
On Thursday, choose a number between 301 and 400.
On Friday, choose a number between 401 and 500.

You can enter every day if you'd like, but once a reader wins one pair, she's out of the running for the rest of the week. Sound good?
Thanks so much to you, dear blog friends. I wish you could all come over for dinner to celebrate these numbers with me, but I hope this week of giveaways will do instead. Now, let the games begin!

Congratulations on all of it!!! Your lovely hubby, the original intents, and sales. You have worked really hard and deserve all of this.

My recommendation for your 100th original intent is for someone to give you a book deal...;)

Chickenbells said...

I think you should give away $100 in honor of the Original Intent! OK, that seems like a little much...I DO like the idea of the week-long give away though...
