Ultimate Blog Party: Join Us for Food, Goody Bags, and Door Prizes!

The Ultimate Blog Party is here. For those of you visiting for the party, welcome for the rest of you join in.

We've got food, music, door prizes, and goodybags. So pull up and chair, turn on some party music, think Pink singing....Let's get this party started!!!!

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Hi, I'm Lois, editor of Goodies for Mom, owner fo the Cushie Pushie Company, and inventor of the Cushie Pushie Breast Support Pillow for Nursing Moms. I have two boys, 5 and 3 who keep me very, very, and did I mention very busy! If that is not enough, I also work full-time in marketing.

Food

Eggfree Cupcakes
My little guy has an egg allergy so our cupcakes have to be eggfree and since I HATE to cook. Here is my solution. These are the moistest cupcakes you will ever have, even though they may not be the prettiest. LOL!

1 box of cake mix
1 can of icing
1 small cup of applesauce (you can use flavored for a change)

Follow the directions on the box, except replace the eggs with one of the small cups of applesauce. Add 10 minutes to the cook time.

Door Prizes

Now for the real fun! Let's give away some great fun stuff!!!!

Just visit each of the sponsors, then answer the question for that sponsor, leaving a separate comment for each. Each comment gives you another chance to win one of these great prizes!!! Deadline is Friday, March 27, 2009 at midnight EST. Open to US residents only.

Here is what you can win:


  • American Heroes #3 CD (2 winners)
    This is the third in a series by NAPPA and Parent Choice winner Jonathan Sprout. It features original songs about various historical figures (Thomas Jefferson, Jonas Salk, Pocahontas and more). It's an entertaining cd for the little ones PLUS a history lesson!
    Question: Name 1 other CD by Jonathan Sprout other than the American Heroes Series.
  • Ficklets Eyewear Charm Huggers (2 winners each receive 2 Ficklets)
    Take the "ho-hum" out of eyewear, add Ficklets and go from ordinary to a fun, colorful and stylish look. Ficklets are interchangeable, easy to attach and remove, giving you "eye-popping" options to mix-and-match depending on your interest, outfit or mood. Ficklets make eyewear uniquely you... they're your "I-candy"!!
    Question: What Ficklet would you choose if you won?

  • EveryDay Solutions Downloadable Seminars (10 seminars) from ProActive Pareting (vcalue=$149.95)
    Parenting can feel overwhelming at times. The stress of daily life and early childhood development can catch parents off guard and cause them to react to situations instead of respond. Each seminar shows parents how to escape the reaction trap, how to stop yelling so a child will listen, how to teach instead of punish so a child learns your expectations for better behavior, and shares every detail needed, including sample conversations, so you're prepared and ready to go as soon as you finish listening!
    Question: Which parenting seminar do you need most? (Come one we all need at least one of them)
  • Let's Go Strolling $15 Gift Certificate
    Whether you're looking for the perfect stroller, the right diaper bag, or easiest baby carrier, www.LetsGoStrolling.com has the best products selection on their simple-to-navigate website that has parents raving!
    Question: What would you use your gift certificate towards on their site?

Goody Bags

Everyone who leaves a comment below with a valid e-mail will not only be entered to win some of our great door prizes, you will also receive a virtual goody bag at the end of the party. This goody bag contains online coupons, coupon codes, innovative products, and helpful articles that all moms will love. From diapers to books to baby clothes.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Stop by the 5 Minutes for Mom's Ultimate Blog Party for 200+ more prizes to win. Here's what I'd love to win:

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Ken said...

We'd like a chance at the American Heroes #3 CD. Please accept my entry. Thank you.

auntrene said...

Hi, Wow this is the first blog I have been to with a test, I hope I pass.. Ok.. question number one.. shhh I am thinking...
Jon Sprout CD....
The answer is... or could be... Kid Power...
yes, yes, did I get it right... I will be back!!! Thanks for the fun!

auntrene said...

Ok, I warned you I would be back.. Question 2... Ficklets, are they not adorable.
I pick... the Small Daisy Ficklets.
Wow, that one was easy. Thanks!!! I will be back!

auntrene said...

Ok, the Downloadable Software I really do not need, I don't have children of my own. I just have others many small kiddos running amuk in my home.
So If I were to get one of the softwares it would be the Correcting Toddlers, because sometimes I run out of ideas.. Some times the 6 of them get the best of me, not usually but sometimes. Are they only kids who ask to please go sit on the time out chair. I am not kidding they love it. Crazy kiddos.
Have fun!!! I am
Oh yeah!!! I will be back!!!

auntrene said...

When I first arrived at this party, I liked you, thought you were a terrific host. Now I am not so sure, Why would you send me to Let's Go Strolling, Why oh Why??? The pain you have caused me because I loved it all. My Checkbook is hiding behind the couch screaming Don't Touch Me!!!!
They have some wonderful things.. ok everything was wonderful.
If I had to pick one thing that I would buy it would probably be the Best Of Chums Gift Set now the dilemma would be which of the two cute sets. My niece would love both.
Thanks for having such a great party, for allowing me to go window shopping in such a great store.
You know you are going to miss me now don't you.... so you could always stop over at my blog.

give me time..
Have Fun!!! I am...
