The Ultimate Blog Party 09 has begun

ubg1

Welcome! If you are stopping by from the Ultimate Blog party, I hope you’ll stay a few minutes and look around.

I’m a Southern Girl who loves a good party (clean fun that is!) and I also love to decorate, so I hope you’ll take the time to visit some of my posts and get to know me a little better (click on Meet Rhoda and Top Posts to get an idea of what my blog is all about) and if you like what you see, please feel free to come back often.  I’m always up to some decorating project around here and love to meet new friends.

5 Minutes For Moms is a very popular site that hosts a blog party every year and it has just started today. The blog party will run for a full week with LOTS of prizes and lots of fun, as it’s a great way to meet other bloggers that you might not normally come in contact with.  Just click on the party pic for more information on how YOU can win fabulous prizes and get in on the party fun. 

If I win a prize, my top pics would be:

1. #89 - A $100 giftcard from Homegoods, provided by Homegoods Openhouse.

2.  #19 - A $50 giftcard from Target, provided by Shoot Me Now.

3.  #21 - A $50 giftcard from Target, provided by Agoosa.

If I don’t get really fortunate and win any of those prizes, I’d be happy with #2, 22, 26, 81, 87, 88, 91, 123 and 130 in the US prize pics.  Under the US/Canada picks, I’d love #15, 16, or 47.

So, if you’d ALL like to get in on the party, just click on the links above and go check it out yourself.  These girls do this blog party as a way to encourage blog friendships and a way to meet others, so this is a perfect opportunity to do that.  You don’t have to donate a prize to win.  Read all the rules and be sure you sign the party post with a comment, then do your own post so others can find your blog, add yourself to Mr. Linky and be ready to have some fun this next week and in the meantime, you’ll meet a lot of new friends!

Party on!

Thanks for the heads up, sweet Rhoda! One of the things I love about you is that you really do love a good party, a clean fun one, just like me. I have a total blast and love to dance and laugh, no alcohol needed for a great time. I hope you win big at the blog party!

Hi, I am a brand new blogger and having a great time at this party that I stumbled upon. I am going to become a follower of your blog because I hate decorating. I have no creativity and need help. Would you want to travel to Iowa to decorate my house!!!! LOL Have a great time and I can tell you are going to be an inspiration for me. Thanks.
