Blog Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

5 Minutes for Mom is hosting a blog party for the next week, and I am excited to participate!  A blog party is an online party where a host (5 Minutes for Mom) site lets all of us bloggers link up to each other.  They are offering over 200 prizes this year, which you are eligible to win by entering even if you are not a blogger.  All of the instructions can be found on their site.

SO, for all of you who came over from 5 Minutes for Mom, WELCOME!   My name is Jaimie, and I am 33 years old and a mother to two beautiful little boys.  My husband Martin and I have been married for over 10 years and live in Southern California (the LA area).  We are very involved in our church (my husband is the worship and youth pastor), and I am the women's pastor.  I am also a photographer who works from home, and a Certified Lactation Educator/Counselor.  I love my MOPS group and encourage every mommy to join one near you!  I love blogging and hope my blog is used by God to bless and encourage everyone who stops by.  Please leave me a comment if you came by to visit; I would love to get to know you.

One of the things that 5 Minutes for Mom asked us to do was to make a list of the prizes we would want to win, in the order we would want to win them.  Since there are about 200 to choose from, and more being added daily, this list may change over the next week. But here's where I would start:

USC 17 – With the upcoming release of their iphone app in the next few weeks, CmomGo is offering up a $200 Apple Gift certificate. For moms that do not currently have an AT&T contract and have wanted that Iphone this will cover the cost of a 16Gig 3GS iphone with the signup of a 2 year contract with AT&T. For our moms that already have an AT&T contract with a different phone this can be used towards the purchase of a new iphone or it can be used for anything else at the Apple store! Our friends from CmomGo sure hope you use it for an iphone though! Provided by: CmomGo
