THE ULTIMATE BLOG PARTY and a GREAT PRIZE

First off I want to let EVERYONE KNOW that at the end of the BLOG PARTY, everyone that has visited this blog or A BABY CHANGES EVERYTHING, my holiday blog and leaves a comment will be eligible for a Gift BASKET valued at $100.00. I have owned a gift basket business for 19 years, so I promise it will be SPECIAL. I am really looking forward to making some new friends. I think that is what makes the blogging community SO SPECIAL!

This BLOG PARTY came at a PERFECT TIME. My new blog design is finally FINISHED. I love it, but I will say I am one that loves a new look often. Welcome to GRAMMY GIRLFRIEND. You are always welcome here and there are giveaways every week, just because I like to GIVE.
I am so glad that you stopped by. I have another blog that is my
HOLIDAY BLOG and I would love for your to stop by for a visit there also. I am a holiday decorator in Shreveport, La. That has been my main business for 20 years. This past season was such a fun time of
PAYING IT FORWARD. I had a chance to give tips, show pictures and answer questions on how to create BEAUTIFUL TREES..
I am a GRAMMY first and foremost. I am a wife of almost 38 years to the SAME MAN. I am the Mom to Greg and Amanda and the MIL to Micah and Dana. BUT my most favorite job ever is being GRAMMY to Parker, Jack, Austin and Grayson. My blog is full of the joys of our everyday life, travels and FUN. There are pictures of the littles that I ADORE on my sidebar. If you read my blog often, you will know these little men well.
We are DISNEY ADDICTS, so there are lots of DISNEY TRIPS. I am a lover of FOOTBALL, AKA BRETT FAVRE, so there are lots of football posts. We are a pretty ordinary family that is doing LIFE TOGETHER. I said it in my profile and it REALLY is the TRUTH.

I love our family and could be stranded on an island with just them and be perfectly happy forever.

I have blogged for one year and began thinking I would write one post, then two and now a year later I have written over 250 posts and have over 750 followers on the two blogs....I began writing wanting to document our lives in journal form and along the way have made the most fun and interesting friends. Totally blows me away. I do not have a clue why bloggers come back. And to make it a tad funnier, I know how to do VERY few things. I am learning, but how I envy all of you that really get blogging and know all the techniques.

So that's my story and I am looking forward to reading yours. I LOVE A STORY and we ALL HAVE ONE. Leave me a comment and let me know you stopped by and I will make a visit to your blog....

You can read about my family in the posts about each family member.

My Man, My Boy, My Girl (and that's a story in its self and the title of the (HOLIDAY BLOG). A few posts that got MANY comments are Meet Micah, PARKER, JACK ......and if you like these READ on.

This post has been long enough...LET'S PARTY. I would love for you to follow my blog. I am going to give some random prizes all through the week. Prizes I would love are list of prizes 11, 17, 39, 49, 54, 72, 79, 82, 87, 95, USC 3 USC 15, USC 25, USC 60

LOVE the new look. Who did it? I need one sooooo bad.

Gram said...

I have been reading since the beginning. I enjoy your Grammy stories and am in complete awe of your decorating talent. I have no talent whatsoever in that area. The only bows I can tie are my shoe laces. Hope you have a fun weekend.

Sunny Sue said...

Girl, you know I am just getting started. There is so much to learn and since I am in competition with 2 teens for computer time, I feel like I can't wrap my head around it all. I want to expand from the basic blogger format and hope to do that very soon. Until then, I will leave the partying to you but expect a full report. Next year maybe I will be ready to party, too!

Sunny Sue said...

Forgot to mention how much I LOVE my card package that I won from you! I even took a picture and posted it on my blog. Such beautiful cards. I sent out 3 just this morning. Aren't you proud of me?!

grammy said...

Good for you!
It looks great!
Can't resist a good party (o:

Teresa I love the new look of your blog! I have been following you since last summer and love your posts, you are real and that means a lot to me! As a fellow Grandma I understand how those little ones just blow us away!! They are a huge gift from our Lord. I think I originally came to your blog from your comment on the LPM blog. I like to check new blogs from there and I'm so glad I found yours.

Tree said...

Okay...I LOVE your blog already!! :) I'm also a Teresa (but nicknamed Tree) and I'm also a "grammy." Your new blog design is beautiful and I am super excited about the basket giveaway. I bet it's gorgeous!

By the way....this quote of yours "I love our family and could be stranded on an island with just them and be perfectly happy forever" most definitely describes just how I feel about my hubby, 5 kiddos, daughter in law and 2 granddaughters (all which live with me LOL).

Happy partying and I will be back again soon! :)

Hi! Your blog design looks great! I could definitely use a gift basket, so maybe I will get lucky! :-)

It's so nice to hear that you've been married for so long. We need to hear more about good marriages, especially with all the press on the bad one.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the blog party!

GrammyMouse said...

Hello! It's nice to meet a fellow Grammy! I have also been married 37 years (this summer) to one man :0 and have 2 grandsons I adore. I would love to be stranded with my family also, esp since they live so far from me I do not get much family time in these days. I an envious of your decorating, I tend to be a pack rat, maybe you can teach me some tricks?
You have a great following, Wow! I am still little (hehehe). I look forward to getting to know more about you & your blogs. You can read about me by clicking my about button, if you would grace me with a visit.

KarmaPearl said...

Thank you for stopping by my blog for the UBP. I don't know if I'm too late for the giveaway or not! But I LOVE. YOUR. BLOG. The design is ADORABLE. I also love new blog designs often and it's unfortunate, because I don't know how to design them myself and can't afford the "professional cute" looks. I got lucky with my layout and a friend did it for me for free to build her portfolio.

Ok enough rambling! You have a beautiful family!

Kris said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am loving yours.

Kelley said...

Hello from UPB!
So many parties and so little time, LOL!
Thank you for stopping by, look forward to reading more of you blog.

Have a great week!

Dora said...

Great blog! You are so right about the wonderful people you "meet" blogging. If not for the love and generosity of women I have met through my blog, my daughter would not be here today. REALLY!!!

Elizabeth said...

I love reading about you. Your: "I am a wife of almost 38 years to the SAME MAN." made me smile! Awhile back, I was asked how long I'd been married. I said, "8 years."

The look on her face was pure shock. "To the SAME GUY?"

Uhm, yeah.

We're shooting for a huge 70th anniversary party. Everyone needs a goal in life :o)

Linda said...

I like your new design, but I'm with you, I like changing the look often. It sounds like you are a very generous person! It was nice meeting you. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by. You have a beautiful family and obviously, they are lucky to be loved (and spoiled!) by a grammy such as you!
I will be praying for that poor family who lost the little boy. I can't imagine what they must be going through. Hope you had fun at the party!

Amanda said...
