Welcome to the Party!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

I am excited to be participating in the Ultimate Blog Party 2009 sponsored by 5 Minutes for Mom..

Woot! I am so excited to go around and visit new bloggers (in fact I am dedicating my day minus grocery shopping (yuck) to doing just that! Here are three of the blogs I intend to visit because they have some awesome giveaways going on:

I would love to have the aromatherapy set (#11) being given away by Oils for Wellness.

My next choice is a $25 gift card to M Jennings Design to go towards the purchase of a custom mother’s bracelet!! (This is #81 on the list)

And, my other choice is #85- a gorgeous homemade pillow by the owner of Beautiful2God (don’t you just love her title?) (This is #85 on the list)

Multi-tasking Mama (that’s me for those of you that are new) is giving away two $25 gift cards to Office Max to help some bloggers get a head start on their spring organizing. I will be posting some tips for becoming more organized this week in honor of the blog par-tay! I am #113 on the prize list.

I do have to admit that any of the prizes would make me happy (winning something always makes you feel good). And, I look forward to meeting many new bloggers this week.
