It’s finally here!! the UBP!

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Welcome to the 160 Acrewood’s corner of the Ultimate Blog Party!!!

I hope you enjoyed the nice drive out in the country! It’s a bit nippy, but the frost makes everything look sparkly and pretty!


Come inside!

There are lots of cool guests here, and company for everyone. You’ll never be bored at the 160 Acrewoods


Would you like some yummy cappuccino on for you, or tea if you’d prefer?


Some warm chocolate cake called “wicked Wanda’s Chocolate cake” here. I’m sure you’ll find it heavenly lol!


For those of you, who brought your swimsuit, come for a relaxing soak in the hot tub! Yes, it’s indoors, though next year it will be outside!!


For those ready for games, we often play “who am i?” You have to guess who I’m trying to be.

Can you tell?


Now on to the good stuff!

The prize I’m offering up this year is this adorable Avon gift collections Lamb picture frame for your fridge (yes, yes I do sell Avon… well buy for myself b/c I’m an Avon junkie lol) Isn’t it adorable? So don’t forge to enter at for the prizes!!!

of course i couldn’t send you home without a little goodie! Easter is coming soon, and of course I couldn’t resist giving you something Easterish!

You have a choice of two different bookmarkers! Just click on to get the larger size and right click “save as” to download to your own computer!

    I especially like the baby and dog. Your guests are charming.
    Unfortunately my link didn’t work on the party site.
    I am #569 but for some reason it says the server can’t find me. Come on over anyway. I have the welcome mat out. And I’ll be whipping up so yummy food.
    I’ll think I’ll hang around the hot tub for awhile first though.

  32. Loved your site. Your blog name is great! I love Winnie the Pooh – he’d be happy with 60 more acres! Beautiful picture of that snow. Just don’t see that here in Texas.

    Thanks for your sweet enthusiasm at my site. I’m thinking we could have a good time chatting over some enchilada casserole and that scrumptious looking chocolate cake. And I’ll definitely have a cup of that cappucino!!
