Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Ultimate Blog Party 2010 Welcome!! I am so glad you have stopped by. To my regular readers, it is Ultimate Blog Party time!! Time to blog hop and meet new friends and party YO!! Apparently I like me some exclamation points. Too much dipping into the kid’s Easter candy.

As you can see from my tagline, we are “Always Loaded, Sometimes Full of Crap.” And as you might be able to tell from that tagline, I like finding the humor in life. Want a quick look into who I am? Well, quick and brief are rarely words to describe me. You could read my 100 Things About Me for a little more info. You should DEFINITELY follow me on Twitter! But how about I point you to some of my favorite posts?

  • I think you should be having lots of sex with your hubby (how’s that for a starting point). Here are 20 weeks worth of posts to spice up life in the bedroom {bow chicka bow bow}
  • I host a weekly carnival called “Things I Love Thursday” on……. Thursday….. I would love for you to participate if you are looking for some bloggy inspiration. Here are some of my recent TILT posts.
  • I am most excited about my most recent post before this one. I am joining a group of bloggers on a trip to the Dominican Republic sponsored by World Vision.  And if you would join me in sponsoring a child from the DR, I have a little gift for you. Trust me, this is one post, you want to check out.
  • One of my favorite posts (and one that is a must read once you find your favorite bloggers through the Ultimate Blog Party) is this one on “How to Stalk a Blogging Celebrity.”

To add to the party fun, I want to introduce you to some of my blogging friends! There are nine of us who each have a word hidden in their post (hint: one of these words is not like the other). These nine words make up a sentence. We will each link you up to the lady who has the next word in the sentence—but keep in mind that I might not have the first word in the sentence! Once you have the sentence, e-mail it to sisterchickies@gmail.com with “UBP10” in the subject line. Each person with the correct sentence will be in a drawing to win a $40 Target gift card! Winner will be announced on all of our blogs April 19 and the winner will be e-mailed. The winner has 48 hours to respond or we’ll pick someone else.

Disclaimer: Some of us are slower than others, but we will all have our posts up by noon EDT on Friday, April 9.

So for your next clue, visit Jessie at Vanderbilt Wife.

  14. Your top 4 posts to read made me giggle a bit, and made my heart happy. I did a mission trip in the DR back in 1998, and loved every minute of it. Would go back in a heartbeat if I could. I think a TILT post (for today even) is in the works! Hugs! Yay for UBP!!!!

    .-= Jennifer´s last blog ..None ya =-.

    • Jennifer,

      I agree it’s was confusing for me too. The webpage that has all the blog links for you to check out can be found at:


      Paste in the link and then scroll way down the page to the list of blogs. From there you only have to click on a blog name and it will open for you. Be sure to check out our website: http://www.powerofmoms.com

      It has great articles, book reviews, and ideas written by real moms. You’ll love it!

  16. Mami2jcn says:
