My 100th Post! A New Look, A New Name and… A GIVEAWAY!!

I have been wondering what to post for this momentous occasion. I started my blog in 2007 to document our house being built, because our families are spread out across the U.S.

My friend April in CA encouraged me to start blogging and I had NO idea what I would write about and here I am writing about EVERYTHING.

I originally decided to name my blog Ponderosa Jr., because it was all about my house. My hubby’s parents live in Northern New Mexico and my father-in-law, refers to their place as “The Ponderosa”. Having lived up there for a while after Mike and I got married, I fell in love with the place and so when we moved to Las Cruces, I nicknamed our house the Ponderosa Jr. Since my blog is no longer about our house, I decided to rename it. The link is still the same, so in your blog list, be sure to change the name. I will officially change it in 1 week in my settings.

So, to shamelessly plug my blog and to say thank you to all my readers and followers, I am giving away…..

1. Burt’s Bees Travel Kit

2. Mini Gel Pens

3. Monopoly Deal card game (we just bought it, it is soooo fun!!)

4. Magnetic Note Pads

5. Mini Bowling Game

6. Fiji Apple Body Butter

7. Whoopie Cushion

8. Flart - “Noise Putty” use your imagination

9. Parents easy scrapbook

10. Hair Wrap Towel

To enter you can do one (or all) of the following, each will give you an entry:

1. Leave a comment (letting me know you did one or all of the following)

2. Post about this giveaway on your blog

3. Follow my blog (if you are already a follower, you will get credit for that, just !)

4. This is more of a request, grab my adoption button and put it on your blog. You can get it at

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin take up real money.
It's all about how to choose a correct partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
