Ultimate Blog Party 2010

The Ultimate Blog Party is a yearly event put on by the fabulous ladies at 5 Minutes For Mom and it’s all about meeting people and getting your blog noticed. Since I just recently re-wrote my About Me page, I am going to point you all there, and leave you with a short and sweet post.

I’m Lolli and I like candy….So much so that I gave all of my kids candy nicknames and designed my blog around a candy theme. I also like to take pictures. A lot. In addition to parenting stories, advice, and funnies, you can also count on me for plenty of family-friendly giveaways.

I host a meme every Friday called Give Me Your Best Shot. Every Friday, I give my blogging friends the chance to show off their favorite photo from the week. It doesn’t have to be a work of art–It’s just a fun time to link up and see what has been happening in our lives. Join me and the Linky this weekend and give me your best shot!

Give me your best shot at Better in Bulk

Starting January 2010, my friend, Manic Mother and I have teamed up to provide photography tutorials and challenges. Check out Bloggography every Tuesday!

I love new followers, subscribers, stalkers, commenters, and tweeps (I’m @1momof5 on twitter)

Yeah, I’m kind of everywhere. Let’s PARTY.

By the way, did you know that there are prizes involved in the UBP10??

    Sorry I’m responding to this so late. Don’t you hate it when someone looks familiar but you can’t place where you know them? The truth is, you looks familiar to me, too. Maybe we should chat and see if our paths have indeed crossed before!
