Let's Get the Party Started... Up In here!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Welcome all Ultimate Blog Party goers!

Hey guys, my name is Jessica but my friends call me Jess or Jessie. I live in the great state of Tennessee, we have a little bit of everything and everyone around here! The landscape is rolling hills, smokey mountains, farm fields and State Parks galore. I love the outdoors, hiking, horseback ridding, and wondering through the world in awe of God's artistry.

I love to shop in Nashville where they have just about anything you are looking for...well except a "husband mart" haven't seen one of those around! I am single, but happily so. That is not to say if the right one comes along I wouldn't be ecstatic, but until then I am more than happy to avoid the craziness of all the wrong guys.

I am a soon to be college graduate, at 28 years old. No, I haven't been in college since HS, lol! I waited until I saved up enough money so that I wouldn't be in tremendous debt when I got out of school. It took about 4 years and all I could stand of Wal-Mart to convince me to go ahead and jump into college.

I've blogged a lot in the past, but never on a site just for blogging, so I am excited to start this new adventure. We all have something in common, we are all going through life and that is what this blog is about...LIFE! I hope that I can share insight, thoughts and experience with you that just may in someway stay with you throughout our short walk together on this landscape! It is intended to make you think, laugh, cry, and see that you are not alone. It is indeed a small world after all, I look forward to getting to know all the new people I can!

My prize picks are
89 — $100 gift card to HomeGoods
given by HG Openhouse

88 –$40 gift certificate to Carrabba's Italian Grill
given by The Divine Miss Mommy

21 — $50 gift certificate to Target Stores
given by Agoosa

If those are taken I also like 22, 26, 49, 58, 123, 134 or USC15. Thanks so much!


  1. Hi Jess, I just came over from the blog party to say hello!

    Welcome to blogspot too! When I first started, I didn't know what a "Meme" was, but if you start participating in Memes you will pick up a bunch of friends. The Memes or carnivals will bring your blog a lot of traffic.

    Nice to meet you! I hope you visit me sometime.

    Many blessings!
