Celebrating 100!

Celebrating 100!

When we started this blog in January our goal was to stay connected to each other from across the country and to work toward getting fiercer as we get older – and have fun doing both! We are so excited that you have joined us on the journey and we love your comments, input and the fact that you’re hanging out with us! This week we are celebrating hitting our 100th post. 100! The first 99 seemed to just fly by! To start off our celebration, we’re looking at what our top 10 posts have been to date and what our personal favorites were.

Not counting our launch post post and the Old Ladies Anthem (which was a total hoot, but more of a courtesy post), here’s what ranked as our top 10 viewed posts:

10. Think Outside the Basket Great gift basket ideas – without the baskets!

9. 10 Fun No-Cal and Lo-Cal Ideas for Your Easter Table – Because celebrations and gathering with loved ones doesn’t have to be fattening!

8. From Grief to the Last Birthday Party – From sadness to celebration over the loss of a loved one.

Celebrating 100!FIVE FROM M:

1. Quinbloits – Words You Have to Be Over 50 to Understand – Couple of reasons, 1) El did such a great job both visually and otherwise and 2) I think we will be creating quite a glossary by the time we are done!

2. Don’t Should On Yourself – Always good to keep reminding myself of this.

3. I’ll Take a Generous Helping of Escargot Please – Still love the snail mail.

4. Confessional – Yarn Bombing  – Didn’t notice any colorful nests but had a great time playing.

5. Mind Games Any excuse to play, I’m there!

Celebrating 100!FIVE FROM EL:

1. The Battle of the Bra – Because this war is still on!

2. Paraprosdokians – The Voices in my Head May Not Be Real, but They Have Some Good Ideas! – Love the new (to me!) word, loved the concept!

3. Change Your Space – the 365 Day Challenge – As someone trying to break my clutter habit, I loved this idea from our guest blogger.

4.  5 Little White Lies – These still crack me up!

Next up in the 100 celebration? 100 Reasons to Celebrate Being Over 50!(It will make you wonder why you waited so long to get there!)


  1. I just bookmarked this page so I can come back from time to time and catch up on the funnies. I’m delighted to have something light to read in-between all my serious crime fiction writing. 🙂

    1. I’m glad we can be a bit of respite for you, SK – hope to see you often! And I look forward to hearing more about your fiction – it sounds like something right up my alley! -El

  2. As a new follower I’m enjoying you both and look forward to the next hundred posts! If you think being ‘over 50’ is good just wait til you get to 65 – -it is soooooo much fun!! 😀

    1. Lead the way, Pauline – we’re headed in your direction! Just remember that our motto is “and having fun doing it!” I’m so glad we connected – thanks to Jill’s blogger roundup I’m getting to enjoy your blog, too! I’m putting your link here in case anybody else perusing the comments wants to pop over and see what you and your beautiful fur friend, Orlando, are up to: http://paulinekingblog.wordpress.com/ !

  3. Congratulations! At first I thought 100 was your ages – combined, of course. I think I’ve read all your posts and enjoyed every one of them!

  4. I’m getting worried about that other milestone coming up. 50 is starting to sound really tame.

    1. Thanks, Jill! And thanks for all the new friends you introduced me to at your site – much appreciated!You probably noticed a few familiar faces here!) -El

  5. Congrats on 100! Whoo hoo to you. I’ve loved every post, but I have to say that Battle of the Bra is still one of my favorites. Keep going!
