It's PARTY time!!!!!

Welcome everyone!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

I heard there was a party going on today so I decided to join in. I don't have anything super creative or fantastic planned, but I am excited to meet some new friends. Be sure to introduce yourself because at the end of the week I have a fantastic giveaway. Head on over to choose your favorite coffee, write it in your comment and I will order that for you when I choose the winner or you can just wait until you win, up to you:)

Now to introduce myself. My name is Wendy and I have been blogging for almost 2 years. I created this blog as a way to keep our faraway family and friends updated on the birth of my daughter and other family happenings. Well, as you know other Mommies LOVE photos of sweet little newborns, so I actually began to get comments! Woah! I didn't even know how HUGE this blogging thing was. Now here I am having a party to celebrate old friends and new.

I have a wonderful rock star husband, Michael, who I have been married to for almost 9 years. We have two children, Wesley (7) and Lani (21m). I watch children in my home so that I am able to stay at home with Lani and be home for Wesley when he gets off the school bus. I LOVE to scrapbook, take photos, and spend time with my family and friends. I shop at Target, A LOT!! I buy Lani a lot of shoes because I feel guilty spending the money on my own shoe addiction. Plus Michael doesn't say anything when he sees her in those sweet shoes;) I use way too many exclamation points and smiley faces in my blog posts and comments, but I can't seem to stop. Sorry!!!

Well, enough about me. Leave me a comment so I can be sure to stop in at your party. If any of my everyday readers can get onto 5minutes for Mom, can you add this post to Mr. Linky for me because I can't for some reason?!? I guess there are so many people trying to get into the party that I have to wait for some of them to clear out. (just let me know if you do)

33 people showing me love:

Hi Wendy,
It's nice to meet you. I love Target, we're finally getting one in Hawaii soon. I shop there whenever I go visit my family in CA. Happy Blogfest!

Hugs, Danette

Hi Wendy! I saw your name on the 5MFM list and thought I'd stop by to say hello!

You're married to a rock star?! How cool! My husband also plays guitar and is currently in a band. He's away a lot for practice and gigs, but it's worth seeing him so happy!

Enjoy the party!

I was going to sign up to do this but I didn't have any ideas for a party...lol =) OH WELL!!! I'm just going to go check out other peoples blogs!!! =)

I forgot to write my fav coffee in my comment so here it goes:

Costa Rica SHB - 1 lb
This blend of roasts provides the bright floral notes of the region and cools to dark chocolate and roasted coconut. Amazing!

Coconut sounds YUM YUM YUM!!!!!!

Heather March 09, 2008 5:30 PM  

Hi Wendy, thanks for having a party! I love, love, love a good dark roast coffee. But make mine decaf for now (I have a 9 mo old nursling!)

I hope you'll stop by my party this week!

Phyl March 10, 2008 2:51 AM  

Guatemala SHB...I am a coffee fiend...lol.

Great party:).

Shauna March 10, 2008 1:22 PM  

Hi Wendy -

Happy Partying!! Have an awesome week!


Anonymous March 10, 2008 2:46 PM  

Nice to meet you. You take very lovely photos and I can see that you enjoy sharing them, very much. Your family is gorgeous. Thanks so much for opening up your blog to new visitors and enjoy the rest of your week!

Tammy March 10, 2008 5:16 PM  

Hello my name is Tammy and I too have a Target addiction. Is there a 12 step program for the likes of us? lol. My shoe addiction stopped when I became aware of and started wearing Crocs -- now I have a Crocs addiction, which my hubby claims aren't really shoes. Whatever --
As for coffee -- yummy the Costa Rica sounds very good -- my favorite flavor is actually Caramel Apple - I am a flavored coffee person, but I will take plain black on those mornings that I feel like I was just run over like a semi truck --

I just started blogging but check me out anyway, and please come back, because the one post, well its like those first people that get kicked off Survivor, they don't quite get a chance to prove themselves!
Have a great day!

Kimberly LaBombard March 11, 2008 1:45 PM  

HI Wendy,
We are kindred spirits: Target, scrapbooking, photography (so I can keep scrappin), blogging to keep up with family far away, shoes...who can resist? I suppose the list could go on and on. :0)
I am looking forward to some quiet time so I can stop back by and read some more. As far as the coffee goes...I am all about decaf right now since I am a nursing mama. Thanks for the party!

Amy W March 11, 2008 2:19 PM  

Love your party :)

Anonymous March 11, 2008 4:08 PM  

Happy Partying! I don't drink coffee, but my hubby does, so I thought I'd try my luck for him. :)

Oh, I love Target too, and there is one about a quarter mile from my house. But, my new obsession is CVS, because I can get things for FREE!

paula h March 11, 2008 4:37 PM  

Brazilian, Fair Trade Organic

I love Targets, too. They have such great clearance. I've gotten my kids shoes there for less than $2! My youngest daughter has way too many shoes but I can't seem to stop. I'll see another pair of pink cowboy boots or sparkly red dress shoes and have to buy them since I know she will love them.

PamperingBeki March 11, 2008 5:56 PM  

WooHoo! I do love me some Target!

Brandie March 11, 2008 7:29 PM  

Hello!! So nice to meet you. I also use a LOT of exclamations and smiley faces too =)

Debz March 12, 2008 8:51 PM  

Great post! Hope your enjoying the party! I’ve been meeting tons of new people! Hope to try to visit at least half of them before Friday! You never know when you may meet a forever friend. Pop by for a visit if you get a chance! Enjoy your day!

Terri H March 13, 2008 9:30 AM  

Thanks for joining the party. I love getting to meet other bloggers. Have a great day!

Janne March 14, 2008 7:29 AM  

Greetings from another Target shopper. (Do they have the BEST clearance sales, or what?!) You may appreciate this post of mine http://janne.cc/blog/2008/01/08/i-hit-the-target-jackpot/

It's nice to meet you. Thanks for stopping by my blog party.

For the coffee, I have recently given up caffeine, so it would have to be the decaf. I see there's only one decaf option, so that's easy! :)

Happy Panda March 15, 2008 9:33 PM  

Guess who won prize #69?
Yep it's you! Please be patient while the prize donor is contacted. They will be in touch with you soon. Congratulations!!!!!!!
