Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Ultimate Blog Party 2010


Even though I've been a blogging slacker for months, I couldn't resist participating in the Ultimate Blog Party 2010 from 5 Minutes for Mom.

Although I enjoy blogging and have met so many wonderful and talented moms while doing so, I found that I started having a very difficult time juggling everything and doing it well -- sound familiar?

I'm entering my 2nd to last semester before earning my B.A. in early childhood education while working as a nanny for a terrific little boy about to turn two! For the past two years I have taken three classes each quarter without a break, but in 10 weeks I am taking the summer off from school before doing my final internship and one other class in the Fall.

I can't tell you how wonderful it will be to get bits of my life back; spending more time with my family; getting back to blogging and keeping up with my many favorite bloggers; and continuing to delve into my family tree. I keep saying to myself...10 more weeks...10 more weeks...

Thanks to the Ultimate Blog Party, I'm taking the time today to jump around a bit and find some new blogs to follow -- hope you find some too!

If I am lucky enough to win one of the great prizes from the UBP 2010, my top three would be:

US1 or US2 – Win a $150 shopping spree at Pedal Cars and Retro Collectibles or A Rocking Horse to Love from 5 Minutes for Mom


US74 - a $30 Gift Card to Amazon.com from A Full Cup


Others that would be great to win if those are chosen: 60, 56, 7, 19, 14, 77, 27, 23, 52, 31, 32, 37, 15 or being a practical person, any of the gift certificates to Amazon, Walmart, or Target would be wonderful as well. Thank you!

  8. I know how it feels to be totally swamped at times and not be able to fit in everything you like. Congrats on getting closer to that B.A.! That's amazing! It will certainly all be worth it!

    Thanks for the heads up on the blog party! What a great idea!

    All the best,

  9. Thanks for dropping by my blog, Dee. I don't know how any of you moms find time to do it all. Guys couldn't do it (I can say that because I am one). Per your comment, like your hubby, my wife is fully Irish by heritage... and while less than a half Irish myself, I've always enjoyed the music and culture... well, and also the Guinness if I must. March is a good time to visit Texas (not just because of the North Texas Irish Festival), but because the weather is so nice. Have a great week!

  10. Thanks for stopping by my blog, Dee. I ended up in Canada because of my hubby! We met while teaching English in China and after a few years of dating I finally moved up here. I absolutely love it! I hope you can get back to blogging, I'd love to keep up!
