The Ultimate Blog Party!

Who knew the blogosphere could have such awesome parties? I didn’t until now, but am excited to be a part of the Ultimate Blog Party 2010, put on by 5 Minutes for Mom.

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

As part of the party, here’s a little “get to know me”

I’m Tiff, writer and creator of Babes and Kids. I’ve been blogging since July 0f 2007 on my family blog, and started Babes and Kids in September of 2008. I wanted a resource where I could share product reviews, tips, deals, giveaways, and just being a mom. I also wanted to make connections with other moms and bloggers which I most definitely have. Along with my hubby, and two test subjects, it’s been an awesome journey.

My hubby and I were high school sweethearts and have been together 12 years. Don’t believe me – check out this awesome picture I dug out from our first date.

Things have changed over the last 12 years. We’ve gone to boyfriend/girlfriend to husband/wife to mom/dad. We’ve been married almost 6 years have two little wonderful and handsome boys, Chandler (4) and Rowan (2)

As many of you know, being a mom has it’s day to day challenges, but at the end of the day, I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

Join the Party
When it comes to a party, the more the merrier! Join the ultimate blog party here!

What would a party be without awesome prizes. Some that I have my eye on are….
20 – $50.00 in jewelry from Cookie Lee, provided by Kelley Clayton
32 – $25 Gift Card from Target, provided by The Frugal Novice
39 – Be my Guest certificate provided by Hilton Garden Inn
71 – $50 Bear Bucks Card to Build a Bear provided by Liza Schwab

I also would love #104, USC 3, USC 13, USC 37,  or USC 39!

    Hi Tiff!

    Stopping by from 5 Minutes For Mom’s UBP2010, I’m fashionably late as per usual, but that’s not stopping me!

    You have a terrific blog. What a sweet photo of you and your husband! It must be lovely to have that many memories between you. I bet you have some great stories to tell the boys when they grow up.

    Thank you, I’ve really enjoyed my visit.

    I am now your newest follower. Come and visit me at Brea’s Befuddled Brain and if you like what you see, help me achieve my goal of reaching 100 followers by my birthday on 2nd May. If I make it, I’m doing a give-away to celebrate!

    I hope to see you soon!

    Mwah x x x
