It's a Par-tay!!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Well hello Ultimate Bloggy Party Peeps! Welcome to the Roof!

I know, I know, it took you FOREVER to get here, and you likely got lost on the way (you followed your GPS instead of my map, didn't you????) but we're glad you finally made it! (Before you park your car, you should probably read this.)

(Oh, and before you come in....I should warn you that we have a little strep throat going on here right now....don't get too close to the 3 foot tall blond kid.)

If you're new to the Roof, thanks for stopping in! We're a fun loving little family of 3, plus one four legged friend. We live on "The Roof of Ontario," the highest point in the province is just a few kilometers up the road from here. We're trying very hard to live as "green" as possible here on The Roof, and our dream is to someday take our little abode here off the grid....it"ll be a while, but we're determined to make it happen! Wanna know more about us? Click on over to our All About Us page!

It's a sweet little life we have going here On the Roof. We live on 2 and a half acres of country paradise, and if you stick around long enough, you may just get to enjoy the spoils from my massive veggie garden! We have friendly neighbours (well, except for that one time last week. Oh, and a few times before that...) and the weather is (mostly) grand. We're big fans of telling it like it is here on the Roof, so if you're looking for happy stories of butterflies and cookies, you've come to the WRONG place!

(The neighbours hard at eat.)
Sadly, we all have to work around here to pay the bills, but when I'm not working you'll find me down in my sewing room, sewing up quilts and other little goodies. You can take a peek at my work over here at BlueJeanBaby. Feel free to pop on over to my Etsy shop as well to take a peek at my cute little birthday crowns.

Speaking of Birthday crowns, I'M GIVING ONE AWAY! Since this blasted strep has put a bit of a damper on our party, we thought we'd make it a party with a giveaway!! Just leave a comment here, and I'll do a draw at the end of the Ultimate Blog Party, for your very own custom made birthday crown...and yes, I can make them in adult sizes too!!

And just in case you think we're boring around here, I assure you, it's just the strep - we're NOT!

I mean, look at this little guy:

Party a minute, people, I tell ya!!

Head on over to the Ultimate Blog Party for some more FANTASTIC prizes....I'm supposed to tell you what I'd want if I won (I always feel so silly doing this....I NEVER win!!) But here goes:

USC#26 - Hatley Gift Certificate for some seriously cozy jammies
USC #58 - Fantastic Retro Aprons
USC# 10 - Mables Labels Package
USC#16 - A gift certificate to Kristens Custom creations (beautiful jewelry!)
USC#66 - A gift certificate to Madre Gear

So thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the Party! And y'all come back now, y'hear!!

Hi. Happy UBP. Hopefully the strep goes away soon.
I noticed your list of 100 things and had to giggle because I live in Montana and agree spending time here is a must.

Regina said...

Just checking in on you as usual - hope the little one gets better soon - mine just blessed his car seat, too - ugh!!! There was something to be said for when they were all hard uncomfortable plastic...!!!

Oh NO! Not strep! That is NOT fun!! Hope it's better!! Cute blog! I can tell you have one awesome personality - I judge a blog by how many times I smile while I'm reading...hehehe. And I smiled a lot! VERY cute crowns! I'm an Etsy addict, so I know good Etsy stuff when I see it! I'm also a party-a-holic...we go all out for parties. LOVE it!

Popping over from the UBP - nice to meet you, Jenn. I sure hope your little one feels better soon. We got hit with influenza recently and are finally feeling better. It's hard to have sick little ones, isn't it?

Hello! I stopped over from the UBP and have been poking my nose around. What a great blog! You write like I think. To my surprise, I am a bit envious of your little slice of life up on the roof. I have never fancied myself a 'country gal', but there is definitely an appeal. Currently, I live in the middle of a great deal of hustle and bustle. It is convenient, I suppose, but not something I want to do forever. Great blog!! I will be back!

Hey Jenn-
