Ultimate Blog Party 2010 - Let's Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Well, hi there. Thanks for stopping by! Did you come to join the party? Are you dressed for it?

No, it isn't black tie. It's pajamas and accessories, a common uniform around here.

If you aren't here for the Ultimate Blog Party and are wondering what in the world I'm talking about, head on over to 5 Minutes for Mom to get the lowdown on this unique, fun way to build new online friendships. This is my first year participating in this annual event and I'm pretty excited about it. Every day I'm reminded in some way or another how large the blogosphere truly is, so what better way to meet some of the wonderful people out there than by partying with them?

If you are here for the Ultimate Blog Party, welcome! I hope you're having a great time! While you're here, you just might want to take a little looksie over at the fun giveaways that I've got up and running at the moment. It never hurts to try to win something, right? Even if you decide not to enter (What? You don't want to win a Britax stroller, Delta faucet or PlasmaCar?), leave me a comment! I have plans to follow this blog hop all over the place this weekend and I'll be sure to come stop by your party as well. If you follow me, let me know because I'd love to return the favor!

Who's behind Thanks, Mail Carrier?

Well, life around here as a SAHM with a 3-year-old and a 1-year-old... when is it not a party? As the title of my blog implies, the mail carrier is a pretty important person in our lives - and we use that term to represent anyone who brings fun things to our door, whether USPS, UPS, FedEx, heck, even that yellow one that I can never remember the name of. Just the sound of a truck coming down our block makes things come to a standstill so we can peer out the window with our fingers crossed.

My older daughter, Big Sister E, is creative, beautiful, bossy, all-knowing, and acts shy around new people even though she talks a mile-a-minute when we're at home. She loves books, coloring, taking care of her sister and getting together anytime and anywhere with her friends.

My younger daughter, Little Sister B, is adorable, happy, independent, a climbing monkey and in need of a haircut. She likes hugging her sister, pushing a play shopping cart around and pointing to a picture of ducks and quacking loudly. Together, the three of us (Daddy helps too, once in a while) have reviewed everything from food to items for the home to music to clothing and shoes to toys to gear and everything in between - and we've enjoyed doing it more than I can say.

This whole blogging thing has brought me opportunities that I never would have thought possible when I first started writing. I've been flown across the country, attended amazing events and opened my door to find pretty incredible products on the other side. However, none of it compares to the people I've met and the friendships that I've made. This community may be bigger than I can imagine, but I am so grateful and glad to be a part of it with all of you.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't be a stranger, come back and visit anytime, our "door" is always open. Now, go enjoy the party! I think all the excitement has worn us out...


Hold on! What would a party be without goodie bags? The Ultimate Blog Party has a whole list of incredible prizes to be won just for joining in to the fun! I would be pretty excited to win most any of them (and there are LOTS), but since they're making me list my favorites, my top three choices are...

1. US grand prize: Satellite L505D-ES5025 laptop from Toshiba (is there anyone who wouldn't want to win this?)
2. USC17: $200 Apple Gift Certificate from CmomGo.
3. US101: Human Touch Foot and Calf Massager from Still Blonde After All These Years.

If I'm not the luckiest person ever to receive those three, I'd also love any of the following in this order: US3, USC39, USC35, USC8, USC3, USC15, US112, USC37, US71, US39, US73, US74, US87, US32, US88, USC36, US52, US55, US31, USC32

Hmm, think that's enough? What great prizes! Thanks so much, 5 Minutes for Mom, for throwing this great party... now, will someone please pass me a cupcake?

Hmmm, this is the second blog party post I've seen this evening.....

have you seen the new season of Tori and Dean yet?!? According to their editing crew, they're on the rocks...but I predicted that already....

nice to meet you - I've been here before on several occasions! Love the sleeping baby one the floor!

Your older daughter is a lot like me. My mom could never understand how I could be so shy around new people and talk nonstop at home (I am still that way!)

Great meeting you!

PJs are our standard party attire, too! And honey, the UPS guy knew my address by heart for a while. True story, when my husband met him at a game and told him our road name he said, "Oh, you must be married to Robyn. She gets a lot of stuff."

Come on by and say hello.

Hi there, I am stopping in from UBP2010!

We sure love the mail carrier at our house too. I always love the surprise and excitement on my sons' faces, when they see the truck outside, or here the knock on the door. I think the biggest surprise was when it was a box of ice cream that was colder than the one I had in the freezer.

Susan Margaret said...

What a great idea! I've been to your site a couple of times but now I'm going to follow you via email as I enjoy reading your posts!

Brandi said...

Well, I thought I would stop by and see what you had to offer at the party. But darn it I had to wade through 121 other comments to find you. LOL Love all the pics you posted, and so glad to learn a few new things about you!

Nanette ~ A Mom Blog said...

Wow, you and your girls really do party till you drop don't you? lol They are too cute.

Stopped by via the UBP. Such fun. Can you pass me a cupcake too, please?

Is it wrong that I only want to see the mailman when I know I have a package coming - otherwise, he could take my bills with him and be gone like the wind. LOL. Alas, such is life.

Party on UBP'10!

Christian Frugal Mama said...

Hi! Happy UBP! Your kids are very cute!! You can check out my blog if you get a chance and see what I'm hard at work getting started, The Mom Mondays Carnival. I'd love to hear your input about it! Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

You party in your pj's too!! (We absolutely love Sandra Boyton's book "Pajama Time.") My 4 kids also LOVE the postman and especially the UPS truck. They love the UPS dude so much that they draw pics of him and his truck!! (They know that UPS means someone-usually grandma- sent them something fun!) You have a great blog. I'll follow.

Thanks so much for joining the party!

Your kids are soooo precious. I esp love the photo of your little one passed out on the stuffy... that's what I feel like far too often. LOL

Yes, isn't it amazing how blogging can open so many doors... we too are constantly thinking how we never would have guessed.

Thanks again for joining the fun and talk soon,
Susan
