Yes, I'm first!! Well, if you haven't noticed I am in love with taking pics of flowers right now. Roses are my favorite. I also like the baby carnations (pink) that are in my favorite white vase on my kitchen table as we speak......

I can't pick a favorite post because I love them all.

I love the picture at the top of this post!

Good luck tomorrow!!

Looking forward to having you as a guest poster on my music blog ;)

Christian and Melissa said...

The most useful post (I love them all) was the one when you showed the sites that you visit regularly. I love your style and it was fun to see some of your inspirations. Now, these are regulars of mine!

Christian and Melissa said...

My favorite flowers are peonies too! Sharee has a beautiful peonie bush in her yard that I love to watch!!

Lesa said...

Hi, it is me again. I decided I did like a post the best. The one you mentioned 'dear lizzy.'

Also, I love the frame. pick me, pick me!!

Tyler said...

I have to admit that I am a religious follower of Melissa's blog. I think my favorite post of your first 200 was the post about our Valentines Dinner tradition. I love you!!!

I have some big visions of tulips for 2012. Check back with me then to see if I can make it a reality.

Courtney said...

Congrats on 200!

I would probably choose gerber daisies but the earthy me says wild sunflowers :)

Liz said...

Melissa, I'll have to admit that I'm a stalker, but I do read everything you write. I'll be watching tomorrow! I love all flowers!

So the sweetest comment came from your honey! Can't top that :) Just an admirer from across the way wishing you the best always!!

Dave and Jenny McConnel said...

I love the posts that are about your family!

Dave and Jenny McConnel said...

I don't know if I could pick just one flower as my favorite. It depends on the time of year. I like the dafodils and tuplips that bloom first in the spring. I love the lilacs that come around the first of summer. Roses are always a classic. Just too many to choose from.

Ticey said...

Yeah for giveaways Melissa!! Well since I LOVED the swap so much I loved those posts! It got me so excited and it was fun to see it all come together! I can't wait to see you on tv tomorrow :)

Ticey said...

My favorite flowers right now are peonies...just planted some in my yard! They remind me of when i was growing up sprouting next to the chippy white shed. They bring back great childhood memories.

Wow 200 posts, way to go! I love your blog, it is so hard to choose a favorite post but, I think one I remember well is the post it post. I love all of your ideas and I think you are one of the most thoughtful people I know. So happy to be your friend.

I love posts about your cute girls! I love hearing stories of your twinners.

little ms. sassy shelby said...

Another comment :) I already know where I'm putting this frame lol. I LOVE peonies. In fact, I planned my wedding day around when they were blooming so I could have a bouquet full of them. Yep, I'm that crazy.

little ms. sassy shelby said...

And because I think good things come in three's, I also love lavender (does that count as a flower?) poppies, and dahlias.

Oh this is so much fun!!! My favorite post is easy.... it was when you made a list of random facts about you. I think it was 58 things?? Anyway- I love lists like that. I always learn interesting things about people. Congrats on 200 posts. You're a doll!

The Skiing Wallaces said...

My favorite flowers are hydrangeas. My mom could grow AMAZING bushes full of them at our home in Layton. I've tried growing some up here to no avail. (I knew it wouldn't work, but I'm such a sucker, I had to try!)
