Ultimate Blog Party 2010
You know why I love a good party? Better yet, a good Blog Party? Because this is a really easy way to check out hundreds and hundreds of super fun bloggers. Kind of like leap-frogging from pond to pond all in one fell swoop!
Janice and Susan are our hosts and thousands have already joined in the fun!
Even if you don't like blog hopping, surely you love prizes? Gifties? Give-aways? Come on now!
I don't mind sharing what I'd like to get my sticky hands on...
First of all, you've seen mah' girl in the Red Tutu, right? Drool. So one of the items up for grabs is the custom made tutu by Sweet Patootie's - and pardon-me-scuse-me, but I'll be havin' that. Ahem.
Second, there are a load of giftcards...Amazon, Toys R Us, The Disney Store, Target....oh my! Mommy like. Mommy likey a lot.
Third, there are gift baskets available that left me a little...well, sigh. Like the Mom Basket...I'm sorry - but any opportunity to put lotion on my feet and some heavenly cream on my face and relax with a good magazine or book...I die.
So anyway...enough about what I want. You're invited! Why not...what else have you got to do? It's fun to find new blogs, meet new people...get free stuff and never have to move from your computer chair, right? Right? Anyone? Is this thing on? (tap tap)
If you're new to Bushel and a Peck - Welcome! I'm Christie and this is my little corner of la-tee-dah, where I talk about wife-ing, mothering, adopting from China and Ethiopia, and gushing over the occasional good book or Lost episode. Well, you can't have all poetry and fine-reading, eh? Some times you just have to discuss in depth the hidden virtues of Sawyer and the dark secrets of Jack. Just sayin'.
Meanwhile, let me introduce you to us
Here are my delicious little children...no really...they are. Delicious, I tell you.
Keira Joy Xi - my youngest. She's almost ten months and we just returned from China in January after a four + year wait to bring her home. There are some good posts about attachment and our trip in the February and March listing. (see sidebar "All in the Past")
Those eyes...those cheeks...the chubby arms...they are delicious, no?
Quint is my oldest - and he's obsessed with Woody! He is two and a half and All. Boy. All boy, people...
AB is the King of De Castle and he's a rock star in the kitchen and in the teaching world...and I like him. I like him a lot. He's kinda the favorite around our house. I know he's mine...
And this is us - and ain't life grand?
Thanks for visiting - I hope you'll peruse some of the older posts...we've been having some great discussions over here at Bushel and a Peck.
Don't forget to check out the Ultimate Blog Party 2010 - woot woot!! And if you're here from the party - be sure to leave a comment so I know you swung over for a visit.
...come back soon!
