Party on

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Hi there! Welcome to my blog spot! I'm Pattie, and I wear many hats:
  • military chaplain's wife
  • dance mom of two girls: a teen (13) and a tween (10)
  • servant of God
  • dog mom of a cocker spaniel and toy poodle--both geriatric-ish
  • voracious reader
  • book blogger and reviewer (see my sidebar for the groups I blog for)
  • military wife blogger for Wives of Faith, an organization to support & encourage military wives
  • coffee addict (hey, at least I admit it!)
  • student--finishing up a Creative Writing course at the local community college
  • former teacher
  • Curves circuit coach
  • journaler
  • chapel praise team member
  • writer
I think that's the main stuff! :)

So for the UBP 2010, here are my top three prize picks (from the US list), besides the

GRAND PRIZE <---#1 choice!!!

(which I would give to Chaplain Hubby--his computer is ooooold!)

49. (Gift card to STARBUCKS)
91. (Green Mountain Coffee GC)
112. (Amazon GC)

Of course, any of the Amazon gift cards would be fabulous, but I went for a big one :)

PS: I did visit at least 20 blogs on the tour. How fun!
