Hello and Welcome!

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Welcome to the Ultimate Blogging Party.

Thank you to 5 Minutes4Mom for making this party possible.

There are some really cool prizes to be won! My favorites are #1, #24, & #70.

I am glad you are here!

Don't you love it when someone shows up at your door for a visit?

I do!

Especially if it is planned. Unexpected visitors beware...who knows what you may find.

If you are an old friend, come on in, take your shoes off, and make yourself at home. If this is your first time, Welcome! Go ahead and look around and please introduce yourself. And of course if you have questions for me, go ahead and ask.


I hope to be a wonderful hostess over the next week and meet up with some old friends and make a few new ones. It should be fun!




And because I appreciate your visit, I am going to give away a copy of one of my favorite books, Feminine Appeal Seven Virtures of a Godly Wife and Mother by Carolyn Mahaney.




Just leave me a comment to this post and let me know if you would like to be in on the giveaway and on Friday the 14th I'll choose one winner. (I will ship to the US and Canada residents only)

Thanks for stopping by!

I must consider myself an old friend...I'm visiting with bed-head and a bathrobe :) I always leave encouraged, looking forward to the visits.

Good morning, dear friend. I'm enjoying my coffee with you.

P.S. - pick me!

Robin (the PENSIEVE one) said...

Ooooo, I'd love to win! Thanks for the offer :).

I'm finding party peeps through my Bloglines and Google while the 5M4M site is down :/. I plan to giveaway something to my commenters, too...maybe I should actually say "what", huh?

I figure if someone shows up on my doorstep unplanned...they must be the kind of friend who wouldn't mind a mess anyway. And THAT is a good thing!

:)

If you have time, I'd love for you to visit my my Ultimate Blog Party post, too.

Hello, Chris! I have that book (thanks to Heth's recommendation!) We were having fun discussing it before I moved. I need to pick it back up again (but please don't include me in the drawing since I already have a copy). Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi,
just came for a visit from reluctant entertainer. I loved reading some of your past blogs on prayer, particularly for our husbands. Thank you, a much needed read today.
blessings,

This book looked so good, I thought I had commented the 1st time I read this post. I guess a little one got me distracted. Can't wait to find out who wins!
