It's Party Time

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Do you know what time it is?? It's party time!!... Nope I'm not talking about a birthday party or Irish party (St Patrick's Day) but that it is time for the "Ultimate Blog Party 2009"from March 20 -27, 2009. If you want to check out all the festivities go to 5 Minutes For Mom or just click on my button above and "Let's Get This Party Started!". Check out all the parties happening in the blogosphere without even leaving the comfort of your home (or wherever you are :) ) It's a great way to visit new blogs, make new friends and get visitors to your blog! So if you want to grow your network, meet new friends or promote your site, Let The Party Start!

What would a party be without music and/or prizes. Both of those will be here. Check this out… Chris Mann, Leslie Mills and Diane Birch are going to be partying with us during our Ultimate Blog Party 2009!

Both bloggers and nonbloggers will be eligible to win a list of fabulous prizes. To check out the list of prizes and instuctions on how to enter go HERE.

There are so many cool prizes to be won at this year’s Ultimate Blog Party, but my top three picks would be:

And if my top three picks are already chosen, I’d love any of the following (in no particular order):

INTL 2, INTL 3, INTL 7, INTL 23, INTL 31, INTL32, INTL 33, INTL 35, USC2, USC7, USC10, USC15, USC20 or anything else related to young children since I have 3 kids aged 3, 5, and 7. Also I'd like the blog makeovers as it's about time for a new look and I don't know where to start doing that myself. :)

If you got here via Mr Linky, WELCOME! and let me introduce myself: I started blogging just over a year and a half ago. I didn't think I'd like it or have anything to blog about. Little did I know how addicting it would be. Rather than advertising anything or a way of sharing info, I guess it is more a place to share about me, myself, and my life and hopefully meet some new friends. I'm a part-time registered nurse and full-time mother to three beautiful redheads. My DH is also a full-time nurse and we've been married for eight years since we met in University. I enjoy gardening, scrapbooking and crafts of various kinds. I'm looking forward to meeting some other mothers of young children with whom I can share the experiences of motherhood and marriage and our love for the Lord. You can read more about me here on my site. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have. I have never considered myself much of a speaker. Leave me a comment letting me know you stopped by so I can come visit you too!

Welcome to UBP!
I took a much needed break to vacuum the store mats but now I'm back to the party!
I hope spring has finally arrived in your neck of the woods.
Enjoy the party!
It's another brisk windy day in Vegas!

Blog Party Woohoo! Talk about fashionably late, right, sorry. I have been sick which left me in a fog all last week, so I am still trying tomake my rounds. Better late than never I figured. Anyway, hope you had a great week at the UBP. Hope to see you again sometime!
