Ultimate Blog Party 2009! Giveaway, too!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

*Ahem.* I have an announcement. Apparently, it 's time to party! I'm getting in on this party late, but then that kinda fits with who I am. You know, what I've told you about being the world's worst person to write a blog about home management? Scatterbrained, late, disorganized.

Yep, that's me. If you've been reading my blog, you know that I realized about a year ago that if I hired me, I would have to fire me. If you hired yourself to be your home manager, would you have to fire yourself, too?

If so, then maybe you should stick around! Because all I am is a girl who, by God's grace, is learning to be a home manager that nobody wants to fire. I'm seeking to honor God by loving my family, managing an orderly home, and creating a beautiful sanctuary that reflects His eternal character.

But a lot of times, I really stink at it. And that's what God's grace is about.

I'm getting better at this thing called home management, and I even have useful information to share sometimes. Like how to use a cash system, whiz through grocery shopping, write a job description for yourself or make the world's best soup. But I hope it's always delivered from an attitude of humility, because, girls, the truth is that without Him, I can't do much of anything.

Before you go off to party at the next blog, please stop by this post--I'm hosting a great apron giveaway this week from Marie-Madeline Studio and would love to invite you to join in!

If some of you are reading this and wondering what the *heck* I'm talking about. . .don't feel bad! Remember, I said I'm getting in on this late? I wouldn't have known what I was talking about just a little while ago either.

But 5 Minutes for Mom is hosting the Ultimate Blog Party--an opportunity to make new online friends and discover blogs and people that you've never run into before. How fun! AND. . .there are prizes to be had! Woohoo! I'm all about prizes. Just click on the banner above to find out more details about the prizes and meeting all kinds of new friends!

Here are some of the prizes that I'd LOVE to win:

#58--A KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer from Moms Who Think (Um, seriously, who wouldn't want that?!)
#7--An Ergo Baby Carrier plus accessories from A Giveaway Addicted Mommy (OK, OK I already have one, but then my husband and I could each wear one AND have the neato mosquito bags that clip on and stuff.)
#127 --A gift certificate to ListPlanIt from ListPlanIt.com (Frankly, who couldn't use more LISTS? Oh, lists, how I love thee.)

These other prizes also looked great: 68, 45, INTL 32, INTL 76, USC 37, 28 and 20.
But, really, there were lots and lots of prizes that looked awesome! Tons and tons of stuff for moms, kids, etc.

Go check it out, girls!
