2010 Ultimate Blog Party

Five Minutes for Mom is hosting the Ultimate Blog Party. This is a way to meet new very cool women bloggers. If you want to check it out or find out how to party with us, just click on the Blog Party button on my sidebar.

Welcome to my blog! Whether you are new or come by often, I am so glad you are here.

I have been blogging for a little over a year now and have found that there are some really amazing women out there in the blogosphere. They make me think, they remind me what is important, they make me feel like I am not alone in my struggles, they encourage me, they give me really yummy recipes to try and cool photographic techniques to attempt.

Being a "mommy blogger" has gotten some flack in the media and has been trivialized. But,the ladies I know who write and post their thoughts and opinions and relate to other moms out there are amazing! There is nothing trivial about it.

Where else can you get potty training advice, craft ideas, writing workshops, photography  tips, personal opinions on new hairstyles, comedic true life stories, prayer for your family, the latest nutritional information, diet and workout tips and insight into everything for FREE! Blogs are like a giant magazine with endless pages.

Plus, there is the bonus of friendships formed.

I know you are hopping around so I will be brief.

One thing you should know about me is that I  strive to be transparent and authentic and tell the true story of what it is like for me to walk through this life with Hottie Husband by my side and raise 4 wild and delightful boys.

Sometimes its funny, sometimes its sad, sometimes its absolutely nutty, but I always, ALWAYS get pictures!

I just realized that in no way by my own savvy computer skills, but rather due to a video upload that froze my computer  between laundry loads which created some funky timing to my benefit...


I am 5th on the UBP McLinky list! 


SOOOOO, I am just going to have to do a giveway. 


Let's say a $30 gift card to Sephora (an awesome beauty product and make-up store). 


I chose Sephora because if I do Target, you will buy food or diapers or a birthday party gift. But, at Sephora you are more likely to buy something for yourself and YOU deserve something Mamasista!


Leave a comment (as many times as you like through the party week) and each time you will be entered. Follow along and be entered again.  


Party On!!

Love the nickname for your 5 year old...Toots! My mom's best friend gave me the nickname Toot as a baby and it stuck. To this day she still calls me that. Anyway, dropping by from the UBP and am looking forward to reading more. Happy Friday!

Tiaras said...

there are some amazing women out there blogging aren't there! nice to meet your blog!

Chana said...

this is such fun!

Alison said...

I truly feel that women in this day and age are so lucky. I know how lucky I am to have blogs of other moms to read. It's really helped me as a mom myself, but it also is an enjoyable way to spend my evenings while reading through blogs. ;)

Following yours now. I love all of the photos!!

Momma Snail said...

Just followed you. Your blog and family are adorable! Find more about me at http://thesnailstrail.blogspot.com/. Have fun at the UBP10 this week!

Deana Birks said...

I have all boys too. Well, not 4 of them, just 2. But when my 2 sons and my brother's 2 sons get together, the sound of 4 boys running around the house gives me some idea what your life is like. We also have a chocolate Lab, if that's what Destructo Dog is. Luckily our girl is an older dog so she's calm. Great meeting you!

Kimberly Job said...

Cute blog! So nice to meet you. :)

Kristen said...

It's nice to 'meet' you! Photos are awesome...and can tell a story all their own!!! Happy hopping!

Luv to Save said...

There are a lot of amazing mom bloggers out there..and I learned so much from them!

Owen's Mom said...

Hey, can you hand me a drink... some hot tea would be nice. Okay, now I am all ready for this party.

Nice to meet you. Yeah, I agree there are some amazing ladies out there and blogging is a fabulous way to all get together. (saves paper, too!)

singedwingangel said...

HIthere came by from UBP2010 and as a mom of 3 boys myself I hear ya.. and I keep a camera handy too, for phootgraphic proof when they get older and swear it never happened lol.

Rachel said...

I pretty much gave up reading magazines once I discovered blogs. I love getting real advice from moms who don't claim to be perfect. Way to go up the top spot on the UBP post.

Jenny said...

Love your blog :D And I'm stopping by from the party as well. :D Hope you'll stop by as well. :D

MrsM said...

Mommy bloggers do get a bum rap-sometimes even by other mommy bloggers-but I personally am proud to be one =)

Happy UBP! I'd love to have you at my party if you get an extra moment...have a great week!

Valarie said...

Love your blog! I'll have to look at your sewing stuff for sure, I'm just starting to sew.

Shop with Me Mama said...

Nice to meet you! Your kids are adorable!!

tiff snedaker said...

I couldn't agree more about mommy bloggers not being trivial. We have gotten a lot of flack and I think we've taken it in stride and come out stronger. Love your post :)
I love Sephora too! Happy blog party!

Heather said...

Hello, it's nice to meet you. :-) I feel like i should be holding a margarita glass as I check out this blog party this morning, but since it's not yet 8am, my coffee cup will suffice. LOL!

Erin @ Closing Time said...

I completely agree with your thoughts on blogging. I started just over a year ago, and it's been an incredible experience so far.

I just subscribed to your blog!

Happy Partying!

JustLinda said...

Here for the party - if you could just point me to the Cheetohs, we'll be all good!

WHAT? No Cheetohs? That's it. I'm out of here.

Denise said...

I am loving your blog! I feel the same about blogging and the net. In fact, it helped us push for a diagnosis for my Grandson because the doctor said he had acid reflux and we researched, thought it looked like Pyloric Stenosis and went to another doctor and it was. They had to do immediate surgery. I am following your blog :)

Shelly said...

Nice to meet you! Don't you just love the gals at 5 Minutes for Mom for throwing such a fun party?

Thanks for the entry for Sephora!

Nichol said...

Nice to meet you! Loving the blog party. So nice to meet new blogging friends!

Kendra said...

Hmmm the blog party sounds like fun, think I will have to go check it out. After I get the kids to school, of course!

Frantic Holly said...

So glad to meet another blogger! And I love your enthusiasm. So true about the gift card to Target. Family tends to take a front seat to our ownselves.

Candace said...

Wow! What a great give away. :) I have one going today too...I saw the title of your blog and had to stop by here. Being transparent or authentic (or REAL) is something God has been teaching me over the past few years...you might say it is one of my soapboxes. :) Nice to "meet" you today!!

Shelly said...

I love your blog and agree that the mommy blogosphere is so important and amazing. Also, who doesn't LOVE sephora? It's sometimes an addiction for me.

Debbie said...

This is fun jumping around meeting other blogging mom's through the UBP! We are important in the Blog world, so let us stand up and shout out! Nice to meet you and I will be following.

Stopping by from the Blog Hop! I am a total lover of Sephora. And you're right...if I won a Target card I'd probably either buy office supplies [because they have unbelievably cute stuff!] or clothes for the Little Guy! Looking forward to learning more about you!

Laura said...

Stopping by from #UBP10. This is my first, so I'm trying to hop around to everyone. I can't imagine 4 boys. My niece has 3 under the age of 6 & they are bbbaaaddd!!!. I have 2 girls, so I really don't know what to do with boys.

The Fischer Family said...

M said...

Hi, I'm from UBP. Why did you move from California to Montana? I am just curious because it sounds like it would be a good move if nothing else for a lower costs of living. I have never been to Montana.

Hey thanks for the chance for the sephora card. I dig it!

Sherri @ Design2Shine said...

Stopping by from the UBP! I love meeting people and blogging has been a delight. Sharing ideas and new friends.

Susan said...

I think that blogging is a fantastic way for Moms to express themselves, connect with other moms, and make their opinions known. As a reader, it's so nice to hear other mom's experiences, and know that what I'm going through isn't so terribly unique.

Stephanie said...

Hi there - so glad I stopped in from the UBP and found you, now a new follower. Your boys are sooooo adorable! I have two girls so I can't imagine what it must be like with all that testosterone in the house! Looking forward to reading more. Please stop by http://figmentsofamom.blogspot.com if you get a chance.

I'd love your input on my new carnival Mom Monday! :) Have a fantastic weekend!

Terri said...

Hi from NY where it is winter again! I am enjoying visiting all the wonderful blogs on the UBP. I hope you are too!

LindsayDianne said...

I have never tried Sephora. I'm always afraid that if I go to god, expensive makeup... I'll just have an expensive habit to feed. LOL!
But I did talk to a makeup artist recently, who did my face for a wedding and she basically said that you'll get addicted, but that it's a good thing. That you can totally tell the difference between good makeup and grocery store makeup....
So, good choice in giveaways!!
Cute blog! And LUCKY number in the list. Lotsa fun, lotsa traffic!
Happy Partying!

How cool that you are #5 on the list! I am way in the thousands I think. I am a mom of three girls so I am sure our households have a lot of differences, but kids in any house = chaos. LOL

I am linking up with http://unforgettablechildhood.com, my comments are linkng back to my other blog. Hope you have a great party.

Mandi Leigh said...

Awesome blog! I stopped in from the party. I enjoyed reading some of your posts and seeing your pics. Adorable children and a great photographer! I laughed out loud at the pic of your baby with the in-n-out burger. That was one of the cutest things I have ever seen. I also have 4 kids, 3 boys and a girl, ages 6,4,3,2. I love to see other medium to large families having so much fun. It reminds me to do the same. Thanks.

Upstatemomof3 said...

Hi there!! It is very nice to meet you!! I cannot stand the way that mommy blogging has gotten a bad rap. We put ourselves out there and put our opinions out for the world to read and people attack us for it. UGH!! Personally, I have gotten plenty of support and good advice because of blogging.

Jessica Guthrie said...
