Ultimate Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2010



I believe I am a bit tardy for the UBP party hosted by the blog 5 minutes for mom as I have seen many great post up and around the blogs all ready.


Introducing myself as the blogger from Annie's Home
First of all my name is not Annie but rather my nickname and my favorite doll of all times. I named my blog Annie's Home because my dad gave me the nickname Annie and my blog is my home on the web. So put it all together and you can find me at Annie's Home. Now with that out of the way let me share with you a bit about me. If you are new here you may not know that I am a mom of 6 and grandma to one little precious Princess and have 2 special nephews and a lil diva for a niece. If you have been here before then you know that I am a doting grandma on my Princess and a mom who loves to care for my kiddos so I share lots of great family tips, cook so recipes are tops with me both getting new ones and sharing old ones with you all, and since you can imagine how much a mom of six has to clean I love to get and share information on cleaning tips, scheduling and what works for me and you.

I love to meet new friends online and have met several. I love to chat, share messages, and visit blogs. You can reach me on twitter @shopannies or here on my blog.

The Ultimate Blog Party offers many great gifts and if I was lucky enough to win any of them I would be delighted my top choices would be:


  • #40 - 3 day 2 night stay in Kissimmee Florida at Holiday Inn Main Gate valued at $250 provided by Holiday Inn Main Gate (my family so deserves a lovely vacation)
  • #50 froggy girl designs $50 gift certificate provided by Froggy Girl Designs
  • #70 $25 gift certificate from Kroger's provided by Saidah @ A Proverbs Wife
  • #104 $50 Vanilla Visa Card provided by Shoot Me Now
  • USC#15 $50 Target gift card provided by Haley Quarles of Love, Life, Family ... and then some

There are so many great prizes from etsy shops to gift cards involved it is hard to pick just a short list because I would love to have any of them.

  6. I laughed that you had to point out that your name isn't actually Annie because I bet you hear that all the time! I think you know how much I love hanging out here (it never hurts that I win a fun prize or two now and again!) and you always have the best tips and suggestions.

    Have a great weekend and UBP week! :)

  51. Thanks for stopping by Mom In The Balance (dedicated to women in the sandwich generation) and leaving a comment!

    You clearly have fun with your blog, and must have a whole lot of good advice about parenting (and how to dote on a princess!) 6 children - wow, what an achievement. And an adventure, I'm sure.

    Enjoy the rest of the UBP party week!
