The Ultimate Blog Party 2009
Hello, and welcome to my party post for the Ultimate Blog Party 2009. Please sit down and make yourself at home. While you're here, you should enter our Lavender Cottage Jewelry Giveaway. I also invite to check out my fabulous sponsors and vote in our latest poll.
And I hope you'll consider subscribing to my RSS feeds and newsletters, and come back each week to check out my featured recipes, my monthly dessert carnival, and other great features. And don't forget to drop me a line, so I can come to your party too!
For those of you who are new to my site, let me introduce myself. My name is Jerri. I'm from the great state of Alabama, and I've been married to my college sweetheart and best friend for 2 years. We just moved into our first house last fall and are making plans to start a family in the near future.
My blog is called Simply Sweet Home, and I write on a variety of topics for housewives and moms. My most popular feature is my Recipe of the Week, which I submit to several great carnivals each week. I also post a lot of housekeeping and organizing tips, as well as craft and decor ideas, money saving tips, and product reviews. And I participate in Menu Plan Monday over at Org Junkie each week.
Each month I host my own dessert carnival called Sweet Thursday . And I'd love for you to join me. To participate all you have to do is send in a photo of a dessert you've made, and I'll include your photo and link in my round-up post. My next carnival is April 9, and I'll be featuring Easter & Spring desserts. If you'd like to participate, come check out the details.
And speaking of desserts, let's get back to our party by "having" a little food.
You can start off with our special appetizer: Black Bean Spirals:
Or go straight to our main course: We have Easy Chicken & Dumplins:
Or Chicken Cordon Bleu this evening:
Now for the UBP prizes...If I should be so lucky as to win a UBP prize my favorites are the Kitchen Aid Mixer from Moms Who Think (USC 28), a $100 gift certificate to Pedal Cards & Retro (USC 1), or a $50 gift certificate to Target, being offered by more than one blog, but I'll link to Agoosa (USC 21).
Thank you so much for partying with me. Don't forget to leave a comment, and please consider becoming a follower or subscribing to my newsletter and RSS feed. And on your way out, be sure to take a balloon for the kids!
