The 2010 Ultimate Blog Party Continues

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Yesterday I told you about the 2010 Ultimate Blog Party over at 5 MinutesforMom. Today I want to tell you about how I'm celebrating; and about some of the really great prizes their giving away at the party. First of all, I really like to bake. So,I was inspired by some of the cakes from the previous years that Janice and Susan showed off. Get this, they actually have "Ultimate Blog Party" written on them in icing. So, I am going to attempt something similar. I know it sounds silly, but why not? I will post pictures of it when it's all said and done. I got another way to celebrate from my Daddy several days ago. You see, I was sick and he told me to take the day off. He mentioned that it wouldn't hurt anything, and I could call it my own personal Spring Break. Well, I explained to him that Mommy Spring Break could only last a day. Then, as I was making my bed; it dawned on me; Mommy only gets a Spring Break when she's sick. So, after some quick thinking I decided that I am going to use the Ultimate Blog Party 2010 as an excuse for one more day of Mommy Spring Break. You see, I am no longer sick, and this will be much more fun. No, the house isn't clean, and there is laundry to be done...but it is The Ultimate Blog Party 2010! I promise to not take the entire April 9-16th off...but it is tempting!

Okay...onto those great prizes...it's so hard to narrow down my choices for the prizes. In order to believe how many giveaways there are...you would have to read the list yourself..but I managed to narrow down a few choices of my own...

(1)- Grand Prize-Toshiba Satellite L505D-ES5025...Who wouldn't want this prize? It would be great for me to take homechool on the go!

(2)- USC #15- $50.00 Target Gift card...I could really use this with some coupons.

(3)- #32- Target Gift Card...need I say more?

(4)- #107- Target Gift card...I'm not very predictable am I?

(5)-#104- $50.00 Visa Vanilla Gift Card... Wow!

(6)-#100- $25 Wachovia Gift Card... This could go far with some coupons.

(7)- #47- Muffintop mama attire...here's me some gym clothes...Yeah!

(8)- #83- Disney Mickey 5 in 1 Tasty..a gift for my Mama, aka Mickey fanatic!

(9)- #57- Yoga gift set...more gym stuff...Yeah!

Now...I have to mention that, although I couldn't decide between all the beautiful jewelry being offered over there, that I would absolutely adore any of that...In fact, I've already pictured myself wearing any of it to church. I would also like to say that I would be grateful for any prize not mentioned on my list.

Thank y'all for visiting my blog and have fun at the party!
