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

If all of those choices are taken then I would also love: USC 8 , USC39 US112 , US104 , US73 , US74 , USC 37, USC 15, USC 3 , US113 , US114 , US52 , US101 , US105 , US107 , US31 , US32 , US36 ,  USC 4 , USC 25 , USC 13 , US6 , US7 , US11, US12 , US20 , US22, US26 , US27 , US37 , US39 , US40.

    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!

    Since I did not get to all the blogs during the blog party dates, I am going to keep going for a few days…I have found so many great blogs….wish I had time to read lots of posts on every blog and plan to come back to many. I am not going to have the prizes on mine sorted out until tomorrow, so anyone that leaves a comment Sat or Sun will go into a special drawing for SUPRISE GIFT. Hope you will stop by…
