Welcome UBP 2010 hoppers :)

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

hey there everyone! this is my first UBP so i'm not sure what i'm doing here. mostly i'm SUPER excited about meeting new people and expanding my reader base. i'm fairly new and inexperienced in the blogosphere. more of a reader than a writer. looking to find others to learn from and be inspired by.

a little about me:

*i'm a christian

*i'm 28 years old

*i live in northeast ohio; but i'm originally from canton, ohio and was born in connecticut.

*i have 4 children (11, 4, 2.5 and 9 months) 2 boys and 2 girls.

*i homeschool my children and i love it!

*i'm addicted to facebook and farmville.

*the library is my second home (i have me card number memorized...)

*i'm extremely conservative and not afraid to stand up for what i believe in!

so there's that. nothing too interesting. maybe as the party progresses i will add more random things about myself. thanks for stopping by and PARTY ON!

p.s. there are prizes to be won people!! i'm supposed to list which ones i like best and would like to win...HOW CAN I CHOOSE?? i think i'd like any of them. here is my list of most preferred prizes though...if i win of course ;) in no particular order:
