They're Having A Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009
I love a Blog Party where I can meet new bloggers and party on and show off my party digs here at WM247. 5 Minutes For Mom is also all about a party.

As the obvious states in my header, my job requirements and title have changed in the past 5 months. I'm still adjusting to the SAHM life but wouldn't trade it for a cubicle any day. Oops guess I should say Hi! and introduce myself. I'm Jean a mom with 3 boys and dog that is also a boy. It's all boy all the time around this house. Welcome to my little slice of crazy.
I try to make a random point of humor in this here blog. When I say random, I really mean it and have even been dubbed "The Queen of Random" by a blog buddy of mine.

My latest jab of random humor was my unconventional attempt at opening a pickle jar.

I'm also trying to spice things up a bit with Wordless Wednesday, by taking pictures of random items around the house or activities associated with a specific letter. I've only just begun and this week was the letter C for Cookies. If you think this is something that strikes your fancy, please feel free to play along and let me know as I'd love to check it out.

Since you have made it this far on my rambling ramblings how about a little giveaway? Do you like to read? So do I. How about a book of your choosing at PaperBackSwap? If you haven't heard of it check it out. It's only the greatest way to get free books and de clutter some of your own books. Just click this nifty button to sign up PaperBackSwap.com - Our online book club offers free books when you swap, trade, or exchange your used books with other book club members for free.
Here's all you have to do:
Go to PaperBackSwap and search through all the books that are posted hourly on the site. Come back here and comment on which book you'd like to have. I'll use some kind of random way of drawing a name and will order the book for you by using one of my credits.
I'm not sure about international or Canadian shipping as the person you order the book from has to pay for the shipping. So I will just stick it to the U.S.
You have until Friday March 27th to enter.
Thanks for stopping by. If you leave a comment I'll be sure to stop by your place as well.

Here's My Prize Preferences: ( really anything would be super fantastic!)
Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer from Mom's Who Think
Pepsi Tote Full of Fun Stuff from My Good Cents
Surprise Box from Monkeys Momma
or Any of the Target gift card giveaways would be groovy.

Hi! I looked at the Paperback Swap site, and I guess I would order the book Twilight! I'm one of the last people on earth who hasn't read it yet, and since I was forced to watch the movie twice by my sisters and have been urged by everyone I know to read the book, I figure I'd better get cracking at it! ;)

Kate@Blog Buttons said...

I am enjoying all these blogs. Yours is one of the best especially your graphics.

Monik@Pregnancy Blog said...

Hi! Awesome blog and giveaway! I would pick Jodi Picoult's Nineteen Minutes. I have an online store, Announcements Galore, and we're sponsoring a prize for the party. Check us out!

Oh I love the idea of Paperback swap... I wouldn't mind any of the children's books (one of the ones that caught my eye there was "Monkey see, Monkey Do")

I'm doing a book giveaway myself...
While I found the party too late to be part of the official prize giveaways, I do have a door prize at my blog: I'm giving away a free print copy of my book, "Two Snowflakes." Here's my address: http://twinhappyjen.blogspot.com/

It was nice to meet you!

Hello Jean. I'm still party hopping through the weekend because there were just so many participants this year. I traded in my working mommy hat for a SAHM hat not too long ago too and I love it! So do our son and my husband. How do you like Twitter? I'm considering it. I'd love your opinion. I have desserts, carnivals and recipe roundups on my blog. Oh and a giveaway coming up soon in April too. You're invited to join.

Pamela Kramer said...

And if all those prizes you listed are gone????

Here comes the prize train....TOOT TOOT!!!! You're a winner, stay tuned!
