The Ultimate Blog Party is ON!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010I have been a huge fan of 5 Minutes for Mom since I first started blogging. I participated in the Ultimate Blog Party last year, and have been looking forward to this year’s ever since. It was such a fantastic time, and I met so many new bloggers.

Let me introduce myself for those who might be here for the first time. My name is Angie, and I’m the mom of 5 little monkeys. Our last name is Vinez, and it’s pronounced “Vinnie.” But, don’t worry. No one ever gets that right. Ever.

I’m married to the greatest man in the world, and am so lucky that he puts up with me. Our kids are 12, 6, 5, 3, and 18 months. And, yes, I’m totally ready for another one. 🙂 There is no greater joy than being a mommy.

I’ve been homeschooling my kids for 2 years now, and I absolutely love it. It’s such a blessing to get to be with them every single day and watch them learn.

When I’m not caring for the kids, homeschooling, doing dishes, laundry, or housework, I’m either running my web and blog design business or blogging here or on one of my other blogs: Super Mom Sanctuary, The Funny Things My Kids Say, or my business blog

I’m also very active in my church and community and love getting to meet new people. I have to be busy – all the time. If I’m not doing something, I go crazy.

You can also find me on Facebook and twitter. I’d love to connect with you there as well!

That’s me in a nutshell. Thank you so much for stopping by. I’m looking forward to getting to know you better too! I hope you’ll leave a comment so that I can stop by and say hello!

Don’t know what the Ultimate Blog Party is? Click here to join in the fun!

I would LOVE to win the Grand prize – the Toshiba Satellite L505D-ES5025 – WOW!

But, if I can’t have that, here are my top prize picks:

  1. USC 17 –  – With the upcoming release of their iphone app in the next few weeks, CmomGo is offering up a $200 Apple Gift certificate. For moms that do not currently have an AT&T contract and have wanted that Iphone this will cover the cost of a 16Gig 3GS iphone with the signup of a 2 year contract with AT&T. For our moms that already have an AT&T contract with a different phone this can be used towards the purchase of a new iphone or it can be used for anything else at the Apple store! Our friends from CmomGo sure hope you use it for an iphone though! Provided by: CmomGo
