Ultimate Blog Party 2010 is here! Let's party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Welcome all party goers!  Grab a favor and get ready to celebrate!  I'm so excited to be a part of this event this year.  From what I hear, last year was awesome and I hope to experience some of the fun that the participants from last year are still talking about.  I can't wait to meet some new friends and learn about all other bloggers around the world and hopefully get some tips from the veteran blogger as I just started on this journey in November.  I could use some good advice!

A little bit about me...I'm a 33 year old married woman.  No kids, yet.  We own a business which is just now starting to recover from the last 18 months or so of recession.  Until we can get the business back up and making an income, we will be childless.  That's looking better and better every month.  We are the proud anut and uncle of a 2 1/2 year old nephew and almost 8 month old niece.  We love them to pieces and are enjoying watching them grow as well as learning a little about parenting through our brother and sister-in-law who are wonderful role models.  I so want to have a couple kiddos of my own, but I'm being patient (well, sort of) and trying to understand that things will happen in their own time.  We suffered a miscarriage in October from an unplanned pregnancy which makes it even harder to wait sometimes.

Enough about me, I'm pretty boring.  Pull up a chair and have a piece of my mom's famous choc......

Darn it!  I knew I shouldn't make chocolate cake!  It's my husband's favorite and he obviously couldn't keep his hands off of it!  Oh well, I hope there's enough for everyone. 

I look forward to visiting everyone's blog home!  Please leave a comment letting me know where I can find you and I will get over to your blog as soon as possible.

My top prize picks (Continental US):
1.  #46 - Scentsy Plug-in warmer and scents from Amundsen House of Chaos
2.  #48 - Pampered Chef package from Shelby Michalek
3.  #68 Scentsy warmer with 3 scents from Mrs. Marine
4.  I'd also be happy with any of the gift cards to Target or Amazon!

Thanks for reading about me and enjoy this week-long party!  I know I will!
