The Ultimate Blog Party 2009

This is the first year I’m participating in the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes For Mom, but it’s not their first year doing it. There are tons of prizes being given away and you blog about it for a chance to win. There are lots of blogs listed and you can click over to visit them, leave comments and make new friends. So head over and join in. It ends on the 27th so don’t wait! You can also join in on the fun if you are on Facebook or Twitter even if you don’t have a blog.

    Hope you pop by and visit my party place here.

    Thanks. :)


  8. Stopping by from my first ever Blog Party. Your blog is so eye catching.

    Hope you will stop by my blog for a visit.
    I am new to blogging and 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,
    it 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 really do want to bless people!!! I have decided that giving is life at its BEST. The drawing will be Saturday!

  9. Ha! Glad you said you were "another Valerie" or I wouldn't have noticed...
    Thanks for dropping by my place.
    And, um, those cookies (on the above post) look scrumptious!!

  10. Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog today...

    You've got a great blog yourself--and those cookies look amazing. I'm going to have to try them, and SOON!

  11. Thanks for stopping by my blog! :) You have lots of great ideas for posting!

    I totally know what you mean about it feeling like you & your husband grew up together because you got married so young. I was 16 & My husband was 17 when we got married. They say a lot of marriages don't work out when they happen so young, but for us, it's only made us stronger.

    Feel free to stop by my blog anytime! I'll be sure to check back with yours!! :) Have a wonderful weekend.

  12. Hello, you stopped over at my blog during the UBP - isn't this fun? I'm finding all kinds of fun new blogs to visit! I like your blog as well - banana peanut butter cup cookies - oh my!!!! YUM YUM YUM

  13. Hey Valerie,

    Can't wait to pick your brain! And please feel free to share your advice or secrets anytime!
