welcome friends.....thanks for popping in my world....
I'd love to know you've stopped by, so please note that the comment section is now found at the title of each post.

It's a Par-TAY!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

So it's party time in the blogging world! And you are all invited!

The Ultimate Blog Party has begun and it runs from March 20th - 27th. It basically is a great way to find new blogs, make new friends and also win cool prizes......(I was able to squeak in donating one of my tees to add to the fun too!)

*if you are popping over from the UBP, please leave a comment and say hello! I'd love to "meet" you.....and just a quick little "about me" blurb~

I am Michelle, just your not so average modern day hippie Jesus Freak mama.....I love to babble about random thoughts, funny stuff that happens in my not so random life with a busy family of six....and most of all, I love to talk about Our Savior and all the awesome stuff that following Him can bring into your life.

OK, so now that we know each other....back to the par-tay:

All you have to do is go to 5 Minutes for Mom's blog and join in on the fun. They have all the details there......and one of them is to post what prizes you would love to win. I donated prize USC #64. There are so many to choose from. Knowing I am always up for some Tar-Jay retail therapy.....I guess I would pick

  • The $50 Target gift card from Shoot Me Now
  • Agoosa is giving away another $50 Target card.....so maybe I do have a shot at some Tar-Jay therapy??
  • and guess what.....Beginner Baby is also giving away a $50 Target gift card!

We are supposed to list other preferred prizes......so that wasn't hard for me!
  • You know my obsession with homemade soap......so I would totally love 5 bars from Goat Milk Stuff
  • I would love #7 if I were blessed with another baby (Ergo Baby Carrier, front pouch and backpack.....value $163!)
  • #56 – Surprise Box of Art Supplies looks cool
  • #2 -I could totally find a bracelet that I like from Sydney Andrews jewelry
  • This looks cool too #66 – Children’s “I’m An Author” Story Writing Kit
  • International prizes have some cool things too.....INTL #15 and #30 have $15 Amazon e-gift cards.
  • Seriously.....I would be happy with any of the prizes, it's just fun to win!....:)
So I think you should cruise on over there.....after at least saying hello to me first in my comments.....and get in on the fun! There is still plenty of time!

Well....I have some other fun stuff to share, but I won't cram it all in one day. I got my first blogging award from Karen today (I will indulge soon, but I will admit that I am already practicing my parade wave and doing a much needed conditioning treatment for my frizzy hair. I don't want my tiara to get stuck in the knots that I have right now). I also have a fun little "pay it forward" fun from another very cool bloggin mama that I want to see who is interested in playing. So y'all come back now, ya hear?

*funny thing about that southern little saying I felt compelled to write......if you ever talked to me, you would know there is no way I could pull of being a Southerner.....this Bronxy New Yahk accent with the raspy voice would never cut it. ;)

Hope you are enjoying your weekend....
peace and love~

Hi! Thanks for visiting my party :)

My parents are from Long Island, so I know all about the accent, lol! People here in Texas can never tell where I'm from because it's a blend of Mom's NY accent, and all the other places I've lived :)

Great party, great blog! I'll be back :)
