IT'S TIME TO PARTY!!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

This is my first time to join in this party. I think it will be a lot of fun! Won't you join in? Go HERE for details.

The party for this year is during the week of March 20-27. Apparently, there are prizes....I'm pretty pumped for that. But more than anything, to find a cool new blog to read. I browse blogs every now and then. But, few do I return to visit. Some, I have even dropped. Anyway, you never know what you can find.

So first, let me introduce myself to some new readers.

My name is ~LL~. I live in North Texas. My DH is a pilot...we have been married for almost 18 years. We were high school sweethearts. We have known each other for much longer....we were in the same first grade class and continued to be in the same classes until graduating high school. We have 4 boys: ages 9, 8, 5 and 3. I'm a certified teacher, but have been staying home, with the younger boys, for the past 4 years. I really enjoy blogging. I hope you enjoy your visit.


PRIZES! There are prizes.....LOTS of prizes. The 3 I especially want are: #59 - the Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer, #22 - a $50 gift card to Target, and #119 - 2 Life journals for Bible study. You can see a list of prizes HERE!

Anyway, if you are a regular reader, pop on over and join in. If you are new.....WELCOME!

I just had to stop in--love the title of your blog!! I'm pretty fickle about what I read, too: I find if I start skipping over a blog on my reader more than three times, it's gotta go!! Party on. :D

Girly said...

LL,

Yup, that's me. The Notebook was my personal blog that I got locked out of and finally just shut down by closing my email account. I couldn't get into it at all - very frustrating. I've also posted this note to you on my blog - but wasn't sure if you'd see it.

We also have a family blog (The Butler Boys)& that blog is connected to my everyday email account so I usually post from that account. I like to keep my personal blog separate from my family blog as much as possible.

My mom is good. She's recovering well from her stroke and just going to therapy to strengthen her heart and trying to not get too stressed.

Anyhow, welcome to my blog :)

You've known each other since the first grade? Fun! I stop by pretty often, and I didn't realize that you'd known each other so long. Good for you!

Happy UBP! :)

Had to check out your blog at the UBP when I saw the title! I knew I would love to hear what you had to say, then seeing you have 4 boys I am also convinced that you will have boatloads of good advice for me now that I am a momma to a handsome young lad!

Denise said...
