The Ultimate Blog Party 2009




Hey Everybody, check out The Ultimate Blog Party 2009. There's lots of friendships and prizes going on out there in Blogland. You'll find the button on the right side of my blog. So, hit the button and start having fun and meet some new friends. Maybe you'll get lucky and win a prize.

A little about me: I'm Shirley. I've been married to Rich for almost 36 years. We have no children.....just a very spoilt furbaby, Misty. Rich and I are both native Oregonians. We live within 80 miles of where we were both born. As you probably already noticed.......I have a passion for wolves. My website is dedicated to my wonderful hubby, Rich and my best friend, Danny who lost his battle with ALS on December 26, 2004. You will find that I blog about a lot of different things. I love to quilt, scrapbook, garden, and cook. You will also notice that I love animals and Mother Nature.

I have recently started back using coupons to stretch my grocery budget. I used to do it years ago. When I went to work full time I stopped using coupons.....in fact we ate out a lot and I didn't prepare meals the way I do now. Rich and I usually worked different shifts and different days off. Now that I'm unable to work and we only have Rich's income I have found my way back to being frugal and using coupons. I basically cook from scratch and buy very little packaged foods.

There are so many cool prizes to be won at this year’s Ultimate Blog Party, but my top three picks would be:

58 Kitchen Aide Artisan Stand Mixer
89 $100 Gift Card to Home Goods
19 $50 Gift Card to Target

And if my top three picks are already chosen, I’d love any of the following (in order of preference):

21, 22, 26, 68, 86, 91, 113, 109, 72, 114, 20, 43, 51, 103, 95, 55, 64, 17, 12, 11, 6, 2, 13, 65, 80 and 85.
