Hello there, thanks for stopping by my blog. My name is Amanda. My husband, Jon, and I live in Indiana with our three children. This is my first time with the Ultimate Blog Party. If you want to know some odds-and-ends things about me, you might check out 25 Things or here.
I’m semi-new to blogging about family life. I originally started this as on occasional update for family and friends but, thanks to my dear friend Claudia’s suggestion that I should post more frequently, it’s become an almost daily occurrence. I just recently did two giveaways for the first time. All in all, I kind of like this blogging thing.
I hope you enjoy my blog. Feel free to look around and, most importantly, have fun.
Additionally, I’d like to thank 5 Minutes for Mom for hosting the Ultimate Blog Party. I’m excited to meet other bloggers, and hopefully have others stumble across my blog.
There are a lot of really great prizes up for grabs. I’d take any, although my five top choices, should I be so lucky, are: (US11) A $100 gift eCertificate to Restaurant.com, immediately redeemable online at over 13,000 restaurants nationwide provide by Amy LeForge of Earnest Parenting; (US19) Prize package of preschool toys provided by Hasbro; (US40) One winner will receive a 3 day 2 night stay from Holiday Inn Main Gate East in Kissimmee, FL (less than 2 miles from Disney World) a value of $250 provided by Holiday Inn Main Gate; (USC13) $100 gift certificate to Kay Jewelers provided by an unpink life; (INTL10) Custom Blog Design for Mommy Blogs or Personal Blog Sites! Includes domain registration and hosting and upgrades for one year provided by StartRankingNow.
My two backup choices are: (US39) Be My Guest certificate ($250 value) for one lucky winner, (2 night stay for a family of four) at any Hilton Garden Inn provided by Hilton Garden Inn; (INTL14) Complete custom blog makeover for Blogger.com plus a custom coordinating Twitter background. Valued at up to $150 provided by Dawn Farias.
And, of course, I’ll keep my fingers crossed that I might win the grand prize: A Toshiba Laptop!
