It's a party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

I'm a little late for this, getting in just under the wire, but I'm participating in 5 Minutes for Mom's Ultimate Blog Party!

This is my first blog party. For those of you who don't know, this is a way to get exposure for your blog, win and/or donate prizes, and get to know others. So here it is, my party post! I'm using it to tell a little about me and the Mom-tionary.

My name is Kristina, and I'm a stay-at-home mom to two little crazy monkey boys who keep me going and going. Recently my mother-in-law said, "I forget how busy they are!" Oh, yes. Busy is a good and polite word for it.

Anyway, I earned a Bachelors in English in hopes of becoming a professional writer some day. Seeing a book I wrote on the shelves of the nearest bookstore is still a hope that I have. In the meantime, the Mom-tionary is my oh-so-convenient and fun creative outlet.

The point of the Mom-tionary is to make up words and phrases to describe situations that we see as parents and caregivers that the English language just doesn't cover yet.

I look forward to reading about other participators in the Ultimate Blog Party!

(And remember, I love comments.)

As per the rules, here my top three prizes with hyperlinks, and then the rest of my picks:

Top 3: USC 58 Retro Apron
132 (no USC in front) Complete Potty Training Starter Kit from Baby Signs
14 (no USC in front) Products by Andrea Hatfield, Scentsy Consultant

And the rest: 51, 103, 37, 19, 21, 22, 20, 118, and USC 15.

Hi from the blog party. It's so nice to meet all these wonderful people through the party. I have two little monkey girls running around, lol. Stop over and say Hi and enter out contest for a flip camcorder.

What a great concept for your description. I find myself making up words all the time. Heck the kids half way make them up for us. Glad to meet you and see your blog.

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

it is so much fun meeting everyone. This is my first blog party.

Hope you will stop by my blog for a visit.
I am new to blogging and I am loving all my new friends.
I am giving away my first EVER BLOG PRIZE.
I have a gift basket business and it is the most requested gift over the last 15 years.
From the comments I have already received, it appears to be something a little different.
I have been so touched by the comments.
I really do want to bless people!!!
I have decided that giving is life at its BEST. The drawing will be late afternoon on that's tomorrow!

Is it too late for me to party??? I could give you all kinds of excuses for my tardiness. Or maybe in the Mom-tionary lateness is already defined as a side effect of having kids?

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm looking forward to reading more.
