Ultimate Blog Party
This is the first time I have done the blog party, I have been blogging for several years, and though I have some blogs I regularly read I wanted to find some new ones so I decided to join in on the fun.
Lily, my 20 month old baby girl.
My husband and I have a third "baby," our store, we sell skateboards, snowboards, and have now branched into recycling, road bicycles that is. Our store has been open for almost 9 years and has been the best and worst thing we have ever done, but we are doing what we love and trying to make it work.
Life has been extremely chaotic the last couple of years and my blog is a place for me to celebrate the little adventures of life, like dancing on the sofa, but also to vent my frustrations when life is tough, like when our store burned down when there was a lapse in insurance. I am learning to be content, learning to let go, to embrace the chaos of our life, and most importantly, I am learning to trust that God does have a plan and purpose for us even if it doesn't look the way I think it should.
And the randoms:
things I hate
1- bugs, especially stink bugs and wasps
3- the cold
5- mushrooms and water chestnuts
6- pollen, more specifically my allergy to it
7- that I am a bit of a control freak
things I love
2-water especially swimming in water
7- warm homemade chocolate chip cookies
8- going for a walk at dusk when it is warm outside
9- having a girl after having a boy and discovering the joys of dresses and all things pink
10- being able to make an adventure out of an ordinary day
and the prizes I would love to win from the UBP2010?
well #1 pick would definitely be the #17 apple gift certificate, I really want a iphone or an ipad
choice #2 would be #15 target gift certificate, I love me some Target not only because of the stuff, but they have cherry coke in the cafe in a fountain drink
and choice #3 would be a toss up between the hotel prizes the Hilton Garden Inn (# US 39) hotels stay or hotel in Florida (# US 40)
then there is prizes of Netflix, amazon gift certificates, gift certificate to Toys R US, gift certificate to Kroger, another Target gift certificate, gift
but truthfully any prize would be awesome!
