The Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Ultimate Blog Party 2009
I’m Beverlydru and I don’t like to miss a party, so I’m joining in The Ultimate Blog Party 2009 hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom.

If you’ve dropped by from there, I’ll introduce myself. I am the Mom of three who have flown the nest. In fact, my firstborn is due to have a baby in July! WooHoo! I have been blogging for 15 months. I live in the boonies in N. Florida and mostly work online from home. I love people and blogging has met an important need for daily communication with people who I can build friendships with.

I’m often tagged as “Happy Lady” by people who know me, probably because I smile a lot. I’m off to a women’s retreat right now where I have the awesome privilege to lead the music.

This party has PRIZES galore! (You only THOUGHT you were going to spring clean this weekend. Nah.)

I’m supposed to list my top picks if I win so here are some that have my name on them. : ) Hope springs eternal.

MY TOP CHOICE!!
58 - Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer
Provided by: Moms Who Think
(winner's choice of color, $349.99 retail value )

Who couldn’t use a Target gift card?
19 — $50 gift certificate to Target Stores

Why am I not surprised that someone who dances with daffodils is also a happy lady?

Enjoy your retreat!
