Ultimate Blog Party 2010!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

It's UBP 10 time! The Ultimate Blog Party, hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom, is a great way to discover some great new blogs and friends in the blogospere. Last year, I found a few fun new reads by participating. And although I'm just getting my feet wet in blogging, it's fun to "get out there a bit." So here I am! Welcome, partiers!

I'm Sarah, and I'm a wife and mom of three in Wisconsin. That's enough of a job, for sure, but I'm also employed full time as a reading specialist. I love teaching kids to read, and I'm fortunate to work in a profession that is so rewarding. I have big plans for some posts that will spotlight some of my favorite literacy sites and resources. (Stay tuned!)

I look forward to meeting many of you as well!

And, oh yeah...there's prizes! If I were so lucky, I'd love:

the grand prize (of course!) Or maybe:

3 – a $150 shopping spree at A Rocking Horse To Love (for my toddler girl!)
USC 17 - $200 Apple Gift certificate (iPhone, iPhone, iPhone!)
72 – Your Shape for Nintendo Wii (that would be for me. 3 kids takes a toll.)

(or USC 8, USC 3, USC 15, USC 13, USC 39 or 35, 71, USC 49, 91, or anything for young kids, baby, or Amazon to feed my addiction to children's books.)

Nice to meet you!
