Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Whoa I'm a slacker!! (Big surprise there, right?)

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

A ha! I was doing my reading this morning, and I noticed that Maria had put up an Ultimate Blog Party post, and I thought, huh. I meant to do that.

Story of my life...

Anyhow, welcome to my party! I've got Two Buck Chuck (red AND white because that's how I roll), and...uh...milk? Or water. I'm happy to provide you with a tall, frosty glass of tap water. Oh! Or juice boxes. I can feed you edamame, cheese poofs, or cashews. That's about it really. I'm notoriously bad at keeping food in my house, and even worse at feeding people when they DO come over. My hostessing skills are some of the very worst. But I'm fun! Honest I am!


I'm Miss Grace.
I'm 26.
I have a 3-year-old, Gabriel.
He's quite charming.
I have degrees in linguistics and library science, because I'm TOTALLY NOT A NERD.
I spend more time reading books than I do reading blogs, which is really saying something if you bother calculating how much time I spend reading blogs.
My leanings are liberal, non-religious, eco-conscious, etc.
I think Obama's dreamy.
I'm going to BlogHer this July, so we can meet face to face. I'll talk a lot. It's a nervous habit. Tell me to shut up already. Or buy me a drink.

Sorry, like I said before, I'm a bad hostess, so this is sort of a lame party...
But! I can redeem this yet. There are prizes to be had!!

All are awesome, but my top three choices would be:

19 — $50 gift certificate to Target Stores (or really any of the $50 gift certificates to Target [19, 21, 22])

106 — Melissa & Doug Role Play Dress Up Costume (prize value $50)

125 — A neato mommy & toddler gift basket!

Really, I'd be happy with any other prize appropriate for a 3-year-old boy, or a 20-something working mom who doesn't like to cook, or, um, I think I noticed some other Target gifties?


  1. I love your blog - have been reading it for awhile. Glad you decided to join in for the party!
