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:

~OBVIOUSLY i' d love to win the Toshiba Satellite laptop.

~a $100 gift cert from Amy at earnest parenting or thrifty jinxy.

~gift cert for a 2 night stay at any hilton garden inn provided by Hilton Garden Inn.

~a tupperware prize pack from Heather at marine corps nomads.

~$25 gc to the disney store from Kristin at couponing to disney.

~a recipe binder collection from Spring Lake Village Gifts.

~$25 target gc from the frugal novice.

~$25 gc to starbucks from Janice Yureck.

~$50 gc to costumes inc.

~the itty-bitty bookworm curriculum for 18-36 month old children.

~$50 build-a-bear gc from Liza Schwab

wow...there are A LOT of prizes available! i'd love to win any of them! here are a few more of the number i'd love. want to see what they are? here is a total list of prizes : UBP prize list.

  1. Hi this is my first UBP too. So you're not alone. Glad to meet you and your blog.

  2. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
    I am your newest follower!
    Have a great weekend! (Oh, and I'm sure it will probably be another boy too! :)

  3. Hahaha, not only are we kindred spirits about the mail carrier, I totally have my library card memorized as well! Before I had kids, I worked as an Administrative Clerk at the library, so it's definitely one of my favorite places, too.

    Happy UBP! :)

  4. thanks so much for your kind word on my UBP post! Very sweet and the encouragement is wonderful! We keep trying and praying. Lovely UBP post there and it is so much fun hopping around!

  5. Hi! I'm following from the UBP:-) I am a home schooler too.

  6. Oooo I have my library card memorized, too! We have a new librarian and it's so odd since the last gal had been here for like 30 yrs or something crazy like that! I don't like change. :) Good for you for standing up in what you believe! I can be the same way and sometimes find it hard to get off my soapbox.
