The Blog Party is HERE!
It's finally time for the Ultimate Blog party that 5 Minutes for Mom puts on every year. Welcome to the party - and welcome to my blog! If you are here as a result of the party - thanks for taking the time to stop by! A little bit about me?


I'm a stay-at-home/occasionally PR freelance-from-home Mom with three kiddos. Bailey is 12, Lauren is 2 1/2 and Grant is 5 months old. (um - yeah...busy around here). I love to scrapbook but never have the time or space, love, love, LOVE TiVo and Diet Coke. I enjoy being home with the kids but would go NUTS without blogs. (now I feel like a crazy for typing that).


Daily I try to form coherent sentences on my blog while babies are screaming or whining or Dora! is singing in the background. Sometimes it doesn't work out so well - but I try. I love to read and am in a book club but haven't finished a book selection in probably a year. I like to try new recipes and read blogs. I love to craft but also haven't found the time for it in quite awhile....another season.


Now, on to the good stuff! What would a party be without a giveaway?! I've got a Mary Kay giveaway for you (oh yeah - I do that too...but not so much of a consultant as I am a 50% discount for myself kinda gal). Anyway, I'm giving away a NEW MK Signature black MASCARA! (value - $15) I was going to make you search through my blog to answer a couple questions to enter - but I hate that, don't you? So I'm going to make it easy. All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post and promise to visit me every single day and leave me lots of encouraging feedback. Ok - that may be what I REALLY want...but all you have to do is leave me a single comment on this post....milling around my site is optional but encouraged. US Only - sorry! =-( Be sure if you don't have a blog to leave me your e-mail address so I can contact you if you win.


Have fun at the party!


The party is going to run today through March 14 at Midnight. You have until then to enter. I'll announce the winner on Monday, March 15.

I'm not here as a part of the blog party, but I still want the mascara. Is that ok?

The other night I had a dream that I wore REALLY gaudy pink lipstick and eye shadow. On half of my face. It was awful. Where did that come from? Three nights in a row with crazy dreams...

I have a 5 1/2 month old but she is my 4th! I also sell MK I'm seeing some common ground here! Great meeting you.

Cute post. I loved the line about trying to write while there is screaming and Dora singing in the background. We live in the same world.

Howdy, howdy!

Cherrye said...

I was gonna get all thrilled for that mascara, but alas - I am not in the US. I can however, get $25 mascara (that would be $8 in the states).

Oh, well...happy blogging and come visti me in Italy when you can!

JanMary said...

Hi from N Ireland, and lovely to "meet" you. I am leaving a comment, even though I can't win. I'm not at all bitter..can you tell?

Enjoy the party :)

Karen said...

Oh my, a pre-teen, a toddler AND a baby?? I bet you ARE busy!! And I remember those days of trying to sit down and do something but couldn't concentrate over the screaming. My boys are teenagers now and those days may be long gone, but we do have another set of problems to deal with. *grin*

I would love to win the mascara! My email is writefromkaren at sbcglobal dot net.

It was great meeting you, enjoy the party!

Happy Blog Party.

Great party, I like what you said about forming sentences. I guess blogging has helped our vocabulary skills.

Uniquely Yours said...

This is great! Make sure you stop by blog to visit me.

Just dropping by from the blog party! I had to skip the party at my blog because I've been too sick to update. I still enjoy checking out other blogs though.
