Blog-Hop!!



To console the many who are not currently enjoying themselves at the BlogHer conference in California, Karen and Robin have thrown together a fun little BlogHop. What a blast!

So, welcome. Come on in! Take a look around.

What's a party without refreshments? So have a virtual soda (diet available of course) or some sweet tea. And please, sample some of this dip. It's yummy.

Robin suggested that we keep these posts brief so that everyone has time to get around to a lot of parties. Read My 100 for a quick look at who I am. Come back soon and take the ride through Our Adoption Story. It's been quite the adventure.

Thanks again to our wonderful hostesses, Karen and Robin. You can stop by Robin's blog,Pensieve for links to other "places to party."

I'll let you go. I know you have other places to visit. Thanks for coming by. Hope you come by again soon.

Oh and before I forget, please leave me a comment say, "hi!" I'd love to know that you stopped by so I'm giving away a couple of door prizes. (I love door prizes!) One lucky visitor will receive - a $5 gift card to Starbucks and another visitor will receive a $5 iTunes giftcard. All you have to do to win is leave me a comment (just one comment.) On Sunday evening I'll randomly select two winners from this post's comments (even from my regular visitors - so go ahead and comment.)

OK I'll be first even though we all know the random generator would never pick the number one LOL! No matter, it is nice to "meet" you!

It was a blast to read through your 100 things. Congrats on adopting. I love big families.

My daughter and I read through the Newberry's too. It was something I always did with my mom.

So nice to meet you!

Sounds like fun. My online quilt group has sometimes had cyber retreats whena small group of us were doing an onsite retreat. We always had a blast.

I came by to see if you had a PhotoHunt. Your doorprizes sound like fun, but if you pick me, go on to the next, as I don't drink coffee and don't know for nothing about Itunes.

Thanks for the promos and it's been a fun party, has it not? :)

It was so good to meet you last night in chat, and I can't wait to go read your Adoption story. I am an adoptive mother too, but mine was domestic.

I'm going to blog hop a bit more, but you are bookmarked, and I'll be back!

Your blog is so much fun; I just realized I've been here before. Bookmarking you so I can find my way back later!

Your adoption story is really inspiring! I liked reading a little about it. I also enjoyed your 100 things post and learning a little about you.

Oooo, we're on our way to getting to know one another better (thanks to Twitter and Karen and now this).

I LOVE that dip recipe but I'm kinda miffed 'cause now I'm craving it :/. AND NO INGREDIENTS ARE IN THE HOUSE!

Anyways, thanks for coming to the party :). You, and so many more, have made it more fun than I ever imagined. Thank you :).

Hubby and I originally wanted seven children!!! We've got 2 now and working on #3.

So glad you could stop by my blog!!!

Love your blog! Your 100 things post was really great.

Congrats on your big happy family. I think adopting is awesome and someday my husband and I want to do the same thing!
