"Finding Fiona"




Congratulations Martha! You are the winner of my 100th post contest! And the new owner of a brand new TV! Get your address to me and you can ring in the New Year watching the ball drop on 15 inches of LCD flatness!

"Finding Fiona" made me imagine how I felt when I first saw my newborn baby girl, how I feel now everytime she says or does something new, something that gives me a little glimpse of her style, taste, opinions, and the woman she will become. She is trying to find something in this photo, with that intent look on her face, and it did remind me of that little fish Nemo, trying to find his own way in the great big ocean. Just like my Fiona must do for herself.


I don't know if I'll ever do another Name That Photo! contest again, because honestly, it was torture! Seriously, I have been struggling all day.


"Island Girl" by Jessie was some tough competion! I loved Island Girl, it made me feel all warm and beachy and I wanted to hop online and book a flight to St. Thomas. Seriously, Jessie? You almost nailed it with Island Girl. The only hang up was that the Island Girl? She's also a snowboarding queen. Winter time is her time. So while she definitely enjoys the islands, the beach, the sun, I know she'll never be far from a snowy hill. Not that you would've know that or anything. Oh jeez, can you tell how guilty I feel? I really loved Island Girl. I wish I had two TV's.


Other titles in there until the bitter end were:

Moonchild's "Beauty and the Beach" Because I love that movie. In fact, I am a beauty myself, married to her beast.

alwys_shoppin's (no blog, no email) "Girl Uninterrupted" Loved it! Sounded like an Angelina Jolie movie to me. And I love me some Brangelina.

Mom of 2 Little Princesses "Carefree Concentration" I was totally into the play on words with this one. Carefree, yet concentrating. Get it?

And of course, another great entry by Jessie (Jessie? Jessie? With no blog or email? Tell me who you are girl, 'cause you're cracking me up!) "Bahama Mama's Girl" This one had me chuckling all day. Just chuckling through the crowded Toys R Us today, I was. Yes indeed.

And that's all she wrote on that, folks. See you in 2008, and thanks for letting me get to know you over the course of 100 posts!
Merry Christmas to you all.

I can't believe I missed you contest. Boo hoo, although I think the winner is very deserving indeed. Serves me right for not spending my days reading my favorite blogs and getting all my Christmas stuff done instead.

Hope your Christmas was very Merry and that 2008 will be very happy and healthy!
