Ultimate Blog Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

The Ultimate Blog Party has begun at 5 minutes for mom! This will be my first year participating, so I'm pretty excited.

Let me introduce myself. I'm Tara, married to a fantastic man named Rob. We, together, have two fantastic children named Ryan and Olivia. See below.

We reside in Michigan, where I still have a few inches of snow in my backyard and we hit 40 degrees today, the first day of spring.

I love a little a bit of everything. I have about a gazillion hobbies. Blogging, cooking, shopping, photography ( I try at least), reading, knitting (again, I try), beading and the list goes on. I think it drives my husband crazy, but that's why he loves me. I'm a multi-tasker. I love staying home with my children. I hate cleaning.

I share reviews, giveaways, and more on my blog. Follow me around, I'd love to follow you! There is nothing better than finding a new awesome blog to stalk!

Out of the many wonderful prizes that are offered the top 5 I would like to win 58-stand up mixer, USC 45- Eleven shoes, 18-$50 GC at Good For the Kids, 19-$50 GC to Target and USC 12-Boon bath toys

Stopping by the party....sounds way too cold. I am enjoying our CA weather. It rained for a bit this morning, well I should say sprinkled. Right now it is windy, but nice and sunny.

Staci said...

It drives my hubby crazy that I do so many things too. Maybe it's because I usually don't finish one thing before starting the next. I guess I should work on that!
