Party Time

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Hello there! Welcome to my little spot on the web. My name is Beverly, and here I talk about my life as a wife, mom of two, and child of the King.I believe that being a wife and mother is indeed a High Calling. Join me and talk about joys and sorrows, with some humor thrown in.

I must admit, I do love me some coffee, some nice thick books, and some sort of snuggly blanket to make it all cozy! My husband and my two girls, ages 3 and 1, keep me busy. But it is a good busy!
So if you were visiting me in person, I'd most certainly brew you some coffee and offer you a great assortment of creamers to go with it. Thanks for stopping by. I hope we can be friends. If you would be so kind as to leave me a comment, I would love to come visit you too!


And because 5 Minutes for Mom is so lovely as to facilitate a huge giveaway for this party, I'd looooove to win (#39) Be My Guest Certificate from Hilton Garden Inn,
(#USC8) The $55 e-gift card to Amazon.com from Kelly's Lucky You, or (#USC3)the $50 Amazon gift card given by Peggy Gorman. And if those are taken, I'd be delighted with numbers 1,3,19,32, 57, 69,78, or 101 from the U.S. Continental List.

Your blog is absolutely lovely!! We share very much the same passion - viewing our lives as homemakers as a divine calling. I absolutely love my roles as a wife, a mommy, and a homemaker, and my blog depicts that. I love coffee, too! Will you come visit me? I will put a cup of coffee on!

PS The music playing is beautiful.
