I'm a party girl.
Seriously, I love a good party.
Because when the heck would I ever get adult interaction if it weren't for a good old bbq, birthday bash, or holiday soiree? Close to never!
Do I sometimes make a fool of myself at said parties? Sure! Do I sometimes get a little tipsy? Sure! Do I have fun? You bet!
That's why I'm happy to welcome all you party goers to my Ultimate Blog Party post!
What's that? You have been under a rock don't know what an Ultimate Blog Party is? Okay, I'll help you. It's pretty much a big blog carnival, where bloggers and non-bloggers alike, visit each others blogs to meet, make friendships, connect and mingle! (And we all know I love a good mingle.)
Another bonus? There are a bunch of prizes. And by "a bunch" I mean, "good gracious, that's a freakin' big enough haul to make Oprah jealous." I'll let you in on my favorites in a minute.
But first, I wanted to say thanks to 5 Minutes for Mom for hosting such a fun way for bloggers to meet and mingle and ... um ... Par-tay!!! (And as a side note, I was lucky enough to meet Janice and Susan at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, and I can atest, with first-hand knowledge, that they are lovely hostesses.)
Now, before I go a step further, you *must* get a drink in your hand. No drink you say? Alright, try this recipe on for size:
For my Fizzy White Wine Sangria, combine in a big bucket pitcher to taste:
or more of sweet white wine
* 1 liter-ish of Sprite
* A few-ish cups of white grape juice
* 1 sliced lemon
* 1 sliced orange
* Lots of ice
* Other tidbits (strawberries, other juice, more liquor)
Stir. Enjoy. Enjoy. Enjoy.
Alright, so now you have a drink.
Lets add some music. (Cause once you have your drink, you know you want to dance.)
Please feel free to play your own, or, if you want to get this party started...
Annnnnd, back to the loot!
I, myself am privy the Uniquehorn custom wordpress design from UnicornBeauty (for my new mom-tips site I have in the works,) a $200 Apple gift certificate (hello iphone) from CmomGo, and a $250 certificate to any Hilton Garden Inn from bloggin2noggin! (Oh, you should know I really want some of these prizes to use for my fundraising - I'm walking 60 miles to help find a cure for breast cancer. The Komen 3-day walk for a cure is a big party too, believe it or not!) Really, any of the prizes could be put to great use - including the grand prize Toshiba laptop! Helloooo!
At a party you are supposed to get to know me. But, I have the tendency to get nervous at parties and ramble. Pointlessly. Continuously. Embarrassingly. So, instead of doing that more I'll just tell you to come visit me here again sometime, or connect with me on twitter at @LastMinuteMandy. I don't bite. Much.
Alright, I think that's it for tonight. I am a night owl, party animal, but I'm still on mom duty. I'm hoping to add one more little gem for you all tomorrow. (Because what's a party with music and drinks, but no dancing? Not much of one at all, my new friends. Not much of one at all.) But you'll have to wait for that one.
Party on! **Insert air guitar here**
