Ultimate Blog Party 2009
It's here! Grab your party hat and loot bag...the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom
is underway, and you won't want to miss out on all the fabulous prizes, or the opportunity to meet some amazing bloggers.

Sweet Serendipity is proud to participate by donating two great prizes that include a $25 gift card to ecostoreusa.com and a hard cover copy of the Usborne book, Cats by Anna Milbourne. To be entered to win, visit 5 Minutes for Mom pick out your favorite prizes (ie # 83 and 84) then write a post about the contest and play along. Here's how it works:

Here’s how it works:

In your ‘party post’ include at the bottom a list of you top prize picks (you can even list the entire set of prizes in your preferred order.)

1. Read through all the prizes and visit the listed sites.Take your time – you have until 11:59pm Eastern on March 27, 2009. Read through the prizes but also visit the blogs and spend some time browsing the sites.
2. Prioritize which gifts you’d want most and make a listEach gift is numbered, so just make a list such as:10, 24, 30, 45, etc.The list does not have to include all the gifts. For example, if there are ten gifts that you know you’d really want, and besides that you’d be happy with any of the other gifts, you can list just the ten. It’s up to you… but the best idea is to make your list complete.
3. In your ‘party post’ — that is the post that you link to in the Mr. Linky — include a hyperlinks to the websites or blogs offering your top three picks. And then list the prize numbers of the rest of your preferred prize list. If you aren’t a blogger, you can leave your list in your comment.(If you’re Canadian or International, only include the Canadian and International prizes.)

You'll get a chance to make lots of friends along the way and discover some awesome blogs you never knew existed.

As for me, I'd love to win 89, 91, 188 or 26!

Pufferfish loves getting the "Thats Not My..." series books from the library. I never noticed they were Usborne books! We never read the bunny one, so I bet she would love to have that one!

We've had our teenager homebased taught since 7th grade.
These days he's attending distance learning HS. It's a must do for our jobs.
I hope spring has finally arrived in your neck of the woods.
Enjoy the party!
It's another brisk windy day in Vegas!

Infant Bibliophile said...

Thanks for donating such great gifts! Our son is only 15 months, but I'm really interested in the homeschooling blogs I've come across and follow; they're always full of great ideas, and they're making me think twice about our own plans. Our blog focuses on reviews of children's books; feel free to stop by and take a peek sometime!

Elisa said...

Hi! Visiting from UBP09! You are one of the first blogs I visit, I'm running a little behind.

I have a friend who wants to start homeschooling, I'll refer her to your blog so she can get some inspiration and feel encouraged :-)

Stopping by from UBP. I have a gift certificate to Ecostore that I was thrilled to receive. So I think it is a great prize that you have donated. Your kids and the dog are adorable, are they up for grabs? lol

Nice to meet you!

Talk about a party!

I'm quite intrigued and am learning how to get around!

"I homeschool because I've seen the village and I don't want it raising my children." ... Uh, Amen to that!

Side Note: I'm not a homeschooler, but check out the awesome results from our first "homeschool gig":
Just today...our 15-year old, who ranks #3 in her class of 600...failed the driving permit test...after completing the required six hours of Drivers Education 101...from the parent-taught curriculum. Argh.

:) Happy UBP '09!

Blog Party Woohoo! Talk about fashionably late, right, sorry. I have been sick which left me in a fog all last week, so I am still trying to make my rounds. Better late than never I figured. Anyway, hope you had a great week at the UBP. Hope to see you again sometime!
