My 400th Post—Three Little Birds on My Doorstep

400 posts! I thought in honor of all 400 posts I’d list 400 things I appreciate. Ha! You know I could, but I wouldn’t do that to you.

Instead, on this I 8 Wednesday I’m presenting a list of 8 things I’d like to see 400 of on my doorstep:

400 Spoons
I have a thing for spoons, what can I say?

400 Pictures of My Children
I’ve tried so hard to be good at scrapbooking. But I’ve been a slacker for the past few years. I probably have 400 pictures of my kids shoved in a drawer somewhere. Still, I’d love to see this on my doorstep.

400 Books

400 Notes from My Husband
I like when my husband writes me notes because writing isn’t his thing. It takes concentrated effort and thought for him to eek out a letter—why I like it all the more.

400 Words from an Agent in a Letter
It would inspire some big time smiling on my part if six of those words were “I would like to represent you.”

400 Frogs
As long as I haven’t been thrown into the middle of a plague, I’m all over it. Good for a laugh at the very least.

400 Thousand Dollars
To give to the charity of my choice.

400 Different Kinds of Flowers
To remind me that spring is just around the corner. Hope springs eternal.

What would you like to see 400 of on your doorstep?

*check out my short story Peonies on Wednesday in CFOM this month!
**Yeah for Dr. Seuss!

  1. Hey Wendy! Wow, four hundred already? Time flies. I can definitely relate to some of your four hundreds. LOL 400 boxes of Godiva would be on my list. Heeeheee!

  2. Love this!!

    I'd like 400 Wendy's to show up on my doorstep....err, wait. Maybe just one. One Wendy on my door step please.

  3. Congrats on your 400th!
    I'd like to see 400 job offers for my husband!!

  4. YAY for 400!

    I think the e-mail from my agent offering to represent me was maybe two sentences? Definitely short and sweet!

  5. Congratulations on your 400th post, Wendy!

    I could go for 400 Taco Bell burritos, 400 glasses of sweet tea, and 400 batches of that yummy shortbread Gwynly makes for me.

    I'm also up for 400 hugs, 400 smiles, and 400 belly laughs. =)

  6. Happy 400! I ditto the 400 pictures of my children, and I'll add 400 spirit-filled story premises that will transform lives. I could write until the cows come home:)

  7. Congrats Wendy! Right now, I'd take 400 extra minutes for some much needed writing time! :)

  8. Congrats on your 400th post, Wendy!

    I would like 400 open-ended, first class airplane tickets on my doorstep. I love Hawaii, but getting back and forth over the next three years to see family (or go to a certain writing conference) is going to be an issue!

  9. 400 smiles from those I love. :)

    Congrats Wendy and I read your short story, great stuff! :)

  10. 400 of anything might be very shocking! But for me, I would love 400 people lined up waiting for me to sign my book. That would be amazing.

  11. I just read Peonies on Wednesday and loved it! Great story!

  12. 400 Lives I have impacted for eternity. That's what I want most.

  13. Awesome post, Wendy! Very creative. Love your 400 stuffs.

    Hmm. 400 Random Acts of Kindness (that I've bestowed on others, because it all comes back around).

  14. Yay 400!~ Woo hoo! BTW, loved your article, girl! Can you be more talented? You are awesome!! And 400 things? 400 great friends on my doorstep would be great.

  15. Congratulations!! 400!!

    I will take 400 flowers too. I love the bright colors!

  16. I'd take 400 more hours in my day...or 400 hours of sleep tonight!

    Congratulations on 400 posts, Wendy -- that's a major milestone!

  17. Congratulations, Wendy! I have missed my time at your great blog.

    Hmmm. 400 bluebirds of spring?
    May God be with you.

  18. Hi Wendy -

    Congrats on 400 posts!

    I'll have give that question some thought.

    Susan :)
