2010 Ultimate Blog Party Time!!


Ultimate Blog Party 2010


I'm so excited to be joining 5 Minutes for Mom's Ultimate Blog Party .  This is my first experience with the Ultimate Blog Party, so if I do this wrong, please forgive me!

For those not familiar with the Ultimate Blog party, it is a great way to meet new friends, find new blogs to follow and win super prizes!

A special hello to all my regular readers and welcome to any new readers!  For those of you that are new to Over Thirty Mommy, I am a new recent first time mom that waited until I was "older" to have my first (and probably only) child.  I blog about my life with Wiggle Bean and how I struggle to balance life as a mom, wife and work outside of the home.  I regularly review and giveaway products that are family friendly and help make life as a parent a little easier. 

Wiggle Bean (not her real name!) was born in January 2009 and is one of the best things that has happened to me. I know all moms say that but she is so great (a little bit of a wild one, but still great).  She still has that little bear and will not go to bed without it, I tried to swap it out for a different one and she wanted nothing to do with it (man I hope we never lose him because I checked and he is discontinued.  Someone actually wanted $40 for it on Ebay)




Bean is now 15 months and keeps me on my toes 24/7!  Mom mom says she is a miniature me, oh great now I am in trouble!  I remember how I was as a teenager and if my mom knew the half of it she would have had a heart attack!

 See that "What?, It wasn't me/I didn't do it" look?  Yep, I patented that! right along with the "look how innocent and cute I am" look pictured below.

Choc-O-Holic! At least she got something good from me!Hopefully she will also get my passion for shoes and purses! Wait maybe not!


Back to the reason you are here, the Ultimate Blog Party!!!Bloggers and non-bloggers are all welcome to participate and enter to win a number of really great prizes with the grand prize (which I would LOVE to win!!!) being a Toshiba Satellite L505D-ES5025

There’s so many other awesome prizes!  As my top four (hard to pick just 4 out of such a great list), I selected:
(Because mommy deserves some pampering too!!)

USC 17 – A $200 Apple Gift certificate. Provided by: CmomGo
 (Momma needs a new phone!)

3 – A $150 shopping spree at A Rocking Horse To Love. Provided by: A Rocking Horse To Love and  5 Minutes for Mom
(they are so adorable!)

USC 33 – A $50 gift card to Lindt Chocolate. Provided by: Michelle
 (I told you earlier that I was a Choc-o-holic!)

If those are already chosen, I would also love (see what I mean about only selecting 4) US#'s 15,31,32,35,37,39,49,50,52,55,61,63,69,70,74,71,72,74,77,87,88,104,107,112,113. USC #'s 3,8,13,15,32,35,36,37,39,40,41,44,57,63.  Really, I would love to win any of the prizes as they are all so great!

Don't take my word for it, check out the awesome list of prizes available for yourself!

Thanks for stopping by Over Thirty Mommy, have a great time at the Ultimate Blog Party

So glad I stopped by! Wiggle Bean is just too cute! Happy party week!

I'm an over 30 mom as well - had my first at 31 and will have my 2nd shortly before my 33rd birthday. I'm sure I'd have more energy if I were younger, but I wouldn't change anything for the world!

The little ones definitely don't stay that way. And that's okay. Our Little One is now 18 years old, 6 ft 4inches tall but he's still our baby!
Love your blog and really enjoyed my visit.
I think this is my 3rd year. Not sure but really enjoy meeting new bloggers.
Great prizes this year! I hope you win one..or two.
I was late too but fashionable late for the UBP 2010.
