Ultimate Blog Party


Welcome! How are you? If you are traveling through visiting the great blogs involved in the 5 minute for mom's Ultimate Blog Party then you have reached the right destination. If you are just stopping by not aware of the5 minute for mom's Ultimate Blog Party then you have to check out this cool event. It is my first year to participate but there are tons and tons of great blogs involved.
Let me tell you a bit about myself. I am a mother of 6 and grandmother to 1 and love being just that. I have been married for 22 years to a great man. I have worked for 13 years as a nurses aide taking care of geriatric patients. I love this job as the end of a long road often brings many stories to share with the world. I also work in my mothers consignment/antique shop. This I love as well. Possibly I just love all the vintage and old stuff because of the great life I have had with great parents and grandparents who introduced me to some of life's greatest events.
My blog hosts lots of giveaways, recipes, and opinions. I guess I just like to share all I know LOL
I have wore many hats before so my experience tends to pay off while blogging. Please take time and check me out. There are many great bloggers that I have met and many that I have never saw before. The Ultimate Blog Party will find me offering great giveaways as well as well as visiting many new blogs. I am so excited. So Have fun and come back and visit with me again.
Here are my prize selections if I should win:
#1 $100 gift certificate to either Pedal Cars and Retro or A Rocking Horse To Love (this would be great for that grandbaby of mine)
#7 — Ergo Baby Carrier (once again for that grandbaby of mine)
49 – Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD and The Biggest Loser Family Cookbook: Budget Friendly Meals Your Whole Family Will Love
All the prizes are wonderful and if I do not win my top list then any of the great prizes including the next 5 would be great to win
INTL 33 — A Blog makeover
INTL 36 — Custom Blog Design for Blogger, WordPress or TypePad
INTL 41 — $35 gift certificate to the vintage pearl
USC 29 — Nana Star and Friends package, including one Nana Star picture book & doll combo and one Nana Star and the Moonman book & Moonman lovey combo
