2010 Ultimate Blog Party - It's Party Time!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Yay for the 2010 Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes For Mom!  Hi and welcome -  I'm Nicole!  This is my first blog party and I'm excited to have some fun party blogging.  I hope to meet new friends and visit new blogs.  Here's an engagement photo of my hubby and I we took in 2008 (yes the water is real - not graphics).  I am a first time mom-to-be due in August 2010 and I have been learning so much from other mommy bloggers.  Thank you!  I welcome any advice from parenting to products to cooking.

From being inspired from all the mommy blogs, I have just started to blog the beginning of this month.  I have been doing a lot of research on baby and mommy products and I would love to find the best product for baby and I.  I hope to post some reviews and giveaways of fantastic products!  If you have enjoyed my blog so far, please do support me by grabbing my button, following me on Twitter, becoming my Facebook fan, following my blog on Networked Blogs, and following me with Google Friend Connect.  I would love to visit your blogs as well.

Thanks for coming to this party! 

My top three pick of prizes I would like to win from UBP:
  1.  $200 gift certificate for any Wall Slicks
  2. $150 shopping spree at A Rocking Horse To Love
  3. Custom tutu from Nellie Bug's
If my top three picks have been chosen, I'd love to win the following in order of preference:  67, 30, 92, USC 24, USC 57, 50, USC 11, USC 5, USC 9, 22, 16, 2, USC 34, USC 29, USC 30, 62, 19, or anything related to babies and mommies.

Hi Nicole -

Glad to see that you are new to blogging too. I just started also when I lauched my new website. I see you are looking for great baby items. Check out our soft and cute baby robes and towels.

Also, please visit my blog. I'm working on getting new posts up, but visit often as we talk more about ways to make sure you Stop Drop and Relax :)

Have fun at the party.

It's so nice to meet you! I'm glad you came by my place and let me know!! Parenting is a wonderful journey...and you sound like you're preparing for it the best you can! The only advice I have to give you is to remember that the only perfect thing about the plan itself. Just because things don't go the way you planned doesn't mean your plans have failed...just that God made them better! ;-)
