It's Time to Par-Taaaay at the UBP'10

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Welcome! Welcome! I'm so glad you stopped by today. Come right on in and make yourself at home. It's time for the annual Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minute  for Moms! What? You don't know about this awesome blog party? Then let me make this quick so you can go here to find out all about it and join in on the fun.

First, let me introduce myself. Hi, I'm Susan. I'm a wife, mother, and a grandmother. The grand-boy and I spend tons of time together. He's such a joy and blessing. There are many hobbies I enjoy but mostly I like splittin the wind on my motorcycle.

I joined this party last year and met some wonderful women who are now friends. That's one of the main events of this party. Meeting other bloggers. Making new friends. The chance to win prizes. That's right, lots and lots of prizes.

There are so many prizes in fact that it's difficult to choose what to sign up to win. What are the prizes? Well, I'm glad you asked. there is beautiful, hand-stamped jewelry items and lots and lots of gift cards and cash. That's, moola, green backs, get the idea. There is also the opportunity to win a blog make over. That one sounds good to me too.

So....let's get on with the party. Thanks so much for stopping by and my hope is that today, This Day, you see the blessings in the ordinary. Now, please excuse me while I go try to win some fabulous prizes. I'm crossing my fingers that I just might be the winner of the  **GRAND PRIZE at the Ultimate Blog Party 2010 which is a Toshiba Satellite L505D-ES5025** that is giving away.   If I don't win the grand prize, these are my top three:
11 – A $100 gift eCertificate to, immediately redeemable online at over 13,000 restaurants nationwide.

Peace and Joy,

Hebrews 1:3 (NIV) The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

Hi Susan!

Stopping by from 5 Minutes For Mom's UBP2010, I'm fashionably late as per usual, but that's not stopping me!

You have a nice blog. I love that you are a Biker Grandma! I've enjoyed my visit.

I am now your newest follower. Come and visit me at Brea's Befuddled Brain and if you like what you see, help me achieve my goal of reaching 100 followers by my birthday on 2nd May. If I make it, I'm doing a give-away to celebrate!

I hope to see you soon!
