Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

A blog friend is participating in the blog party.  She's participated in the past and I finally decided I would do it as well.  I'd really like to get more traffic to this blog and my crafting blog.  So if you hop on over there, you will see the above banner as well.  Every year the Ultimate Blog Party has some really, really fabulous prizes the give away.  Plus it's really nice to get to know new bloggers all the time!

These are my favorites this year.  Of course I would love to win the Grand Prize - The Toshiba laptop.  Not because I need a new computer, but because my parents do.  Within the past 6 months my dad started his own business and the current processor he has is a hand-me-down from my sister and it is extremely S-L-O-W.  So I'd love to win something I can give away to someone who really could use it.  The others on the favorites list are the Buds to Bloom Photo Tile Necklace, the Hilton Garden Inn 2-night stay, the Scentsy Warmer & wax scents, Build a Bear $50 GC, Silver Sweethearts necklace, Shutterfly $25 GC, $50 Visa GC, $50 Target GC and the $200 Apple Store GC (I want an i*Pad).  But to be honest, I would be honored winning any of the prizes in this years giveaway.  So if you're interested, hop on over and take a peek if you're a blogger.

If you're new to my blog(s) here's a little background:

I'm an Indiana grown girl who met her husband and one of her best friend's weddings.  Eight and a half months after we met, we were married.  We're going on 14 yrs of semi-wedded bliss (sorry, can't lie, marriage has it's moments.  It's not always smiling and holding hands).  We have 2 adopted children.  Our son was adopted here in the US in a semi-open adoption.  Our daughter was adopted last summer from China.  We're a military family nearing retirement and a life without the military.  Yippie!  Can you tell I'm just a little bit excited?? As much as I have loved living all over the country and making great friends, I'm over the uncertainty of life and want some stability for my family and especially my kids.  Most of all I miss my family and friends at home in the Hoosier state. 

Tomorrow I should be putting up a new blog post about our visit to the Air Museum at Robins AFB.  There are only a few photos I took, but they're still really cute!

  2. Hello there! I'm stopping by for the party and I'm so excited to read your blog. I currently live in Indianapolis and what's funny is that I've never met another blogger from Indy. I'm happy that you'll be able to move home soon. Until then, I'm sending Indy love your way!
