99 yummy posts on the blog, 99 yummy posts…
In case you missed the goofy reference, I was channeling “99 bottles of beer on the wall”. I’m kind of excited to approach a couple of milestones: 100 posts on this blog, and 25,000 views.
I know, small potatoes for many bloggers, but this is my side project, and one with a fairly narrow scope – so, I’m not looking for thousands of views per post. I’m quite happy with the wonderful people who take time to read about my experiences. So, thank you!
Since I won’t be eating anything very interesting in the near-term – because I decided to endure my first full-body detox/cleanse, starting last week, and ending at the end of November (before Thanksgiving and my second trip to Clemson this season), I’ve asked folks if anyone would like to write a guest post for “She Ordered What?”‘s 100th post.
In the year or so since I met Phi, we’ve had some really fun and pretty cool experiences. Also, her blog has TAKEN OFF! She’s really spent a lot of time and effort growing SweetPhi to become a food blog that partners with some great companies, and reaches the masses. Kudos to you, girl!
Phi and I originally met through a small Facebook group she started to bring together Milwaukee food bloggers. That’s probably one of the traits about Phi that immediately drew me to her. We both reach out to people and we hang on to those we really enjoy. We also support each other – whether it be in terms of daily life, special events, or on our blogs. I appreciate Phi!
That brings me to the latest fun event in our friendship. On her blog, and through one of her awesome partnerships with Pig of the Month, Phi was planning an epic BBQ giveaway. Of course, being a Southern educated woman, I HAD to comment! I mean, BBQ is a “Southern thang”.
Fast-forward approximately three weeks, and I get this text: “Girl! Omg!!!!!!!!!!!!! You were randomly selected as the winner of the bbq giveaway!”
Fast-forward another week or so, and I had a huge box marked “perishable” at my front door.
Folks, these were the contents of that beloved box!
Oh, dear gosh…can I tell y’all how extremely excited I was first to hear that I won this prize, and secondly, to SEE the prize?? My box *slightly* deviated from the description in the link above, but not much! I received six racks of ribs (2x Memphis style, 2x BBQ ribs w/ sauce, 1x dry rub, and 1x Key West style), 2 lbs of pulled pork in BBQ sauce, 1lb of pulled chicken in sauce, and brisket! Holy pig!!!
Sadly, I had to pull these beautiful packages out from the dry ice-packed cooler that was sent to my door and put them directly into my freezer. I kid you not…this incredible prize pack came on the first night I started aforementioned cleanse/detox. But, rest assured, I plan to host a great party at which my friends and I will ENJOY this Pig of the Month package. I’m confident that this will make for a wonderful meal (or two+).
So, many thanks to Phi, not only for her friendship, but also for the wonderful BBQ prize pack, and for offering to guest post the 100th post on “She Ordered What?”. Please stay tuned for her post here, and check out her awesome blog – GREAT recipes and occasional giveaways that you don’t want to miss!
