2010 Ultimate Blog Party

I’m so glad you stopped by! I am a mom to two great kids, Mr.T. is 14 and Pie is 9. I can’t believe how fast they grow! My man and I have been together for 15 years this July, WooHoo! When you visit A Hen’s Nest you’ll find random posts about our life, a few recipes, freebies and simple craft ideas thrown in. I also love to share reviews on products we try and host giveaways to give a little back to my readers. Every Friday come link up your giveaways on Hen’s Clutch. You’ll fin a ton of great ones to enter there too.

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

As usual, I’m late to the party! I still wanted to post because I didn’t want you to miss out on the 2010 Ultimate Blog Party thrown by 5 Minutes for Mom! The party runs from April 9th – 16th so you still have time to join in too! There are some really amazing things to be won, here’s what I’d choose if I won:

Of course I’d choose the GRAND PRIZE if I could! I would LOVE to win the  Toshiba Satellite L505D-ES5025.

US18Goodie Basket for Mom – Estimated retail value of prize $50.
Provided by: Healthy Moms – The Number One Health Blog for Moms. Follow here: cltalbert or Visit Fan Page: Healthy Moms

    Shop rite giveaway, that sounds like a great prize, I don't have any close to me, but I'm happy to meet you.

    I think of my blog as being pretty random too. Crazy random sometimes.!!

    Oh how fun is this blog. . . honey you had me at recipes! I sent your blog to my dad and he loves your banner as much as I do. He has pigeons and he is thinking of starting a site himself so that banner is just genius!

  5. Our Country Road says:

    Hi! I found you through the UPB. Cute cute blog, and I certainly will be stopping by more often-especially on Fridays :) I invite you to come chat at my table, too. Blessings.

  6. Wish I had a Shop Rite but I don't. Great giveaway though. I thought I would stop by from the party and say Hi. Hope you are enjoying the party. Stop by my site and enter into my giveaway; all I need is a comment. Have a great party.
