Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Ultimate Blog Party 2009
The Ultimate Blog Party 2009 has started!
Welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah and I live in Wisconsin. I am super-amazingly-happily married with a blended family of 5 boys and my baby Kira (lab-dalmatian mix-she is a dog in case that wasn't clear). :)

I am fairly new to blogging as you will see from my archive list, but I have already made some wonderful friends and I am falling more and more in love with my blog time!
You will find through my blog that I am a Christian homeschooler, coupon-queen, edging my way into home decor, baking, recipe testing, doing things myself (gasp!), shopper, friend and all around fun girl (at least I think so!). I hope to make plenty of new friends through this party!

Some of my favorite blogs to read and friends I have made are here: nester, Maisy Report, project create a home, we are that family, money saving mom, little momma and company, katies nesting spot, bless our nest, shell in your pocket and BlueCastle. I could list numerous others, to see some of my other friends check out my followed blogs.

I hope to offer fun tidbits of sale, ideas, family updates, creativity and encouragement with my blog. I hope you will follow and become a part of a Prayerful Driven Life with me. I plan to have giveaways in the future as well! :)
As part of the excitement of this party are the prizes, here are the items I would love to win:
58 – Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer

42 — 5 kajeet phones with $5 of airtime

Love your blog. Good to meet you.

Stop by my blog for a visit. Though I am relativity new to blogging, I am loving all my new friends.

I am giving away my first EVER BLOG PRIZE.
I have a gift basket business and it is the most requested gift over the last 15 years.

From the comments I have already received, appears to be something a little different and something anyone could use.

I have been so touched by the comments that I have decided to give 2 boxes . They will be the $100 deluxe size.

I want my blog to encourage others.

I have decided that giving is life at its BEST. The drawing will be Saturday!

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

Does your Mom have a web site...We might could talk a little trees....

Come back again soon.

I have a baby boy and we are considering homeschooling when he is bigger. Wow, five boys! My goodness! I met a blogger through UBP that has six boys...and lots of other mothers with sons. I'm in good company, although I don't know how you find time to blog with so many sons! :-)

When you have a moment, you're invited to stop by my blog at I write about green and simple living, faith, family, and other stuff.

Enjoy the rest of the party!
