Ultimate Blog Party 2010

It's party time!
And I'm not just referring to the all nighters us mommy's pull with our little partyin' people.
My newest loves to rock and roll all night and party all the time. ^_^

No, this is a party for us.  A blogger bash!

I've been blogging for a little over a year.  
And what's surprised me the most about this entire experience are the friends I've met.
Wonderful, beautiful, encouraging people.
Last year, I jumped head first into 5 Minutes for Mom's Ultimate Blog Party and had a blast meeting and connecting with other bloggers.
I couldn't resist another party.
Especially one I can go to in my pj's.

I started day dreaming (something I do often while nursing my wee one between the hours of midnight and four in the morning--is it still called day dreaming if it's at night but you're awake?)  Anyways, I got lost in thought about what kind of party I would have in real life  (you know, in all my spare time of raising four kids four and under).

If I could host the perfect party and invite every one of my friends (blogging and non-blogging), now would be the time to do it--while spring is sprightly green and there's a fair weather feeling in the air.   And the perfect theme?  Liberty of London for Target.  I am in love with these florals.  In love.

It would be a lawn party.
Little tables brimming with spring wildflowers and laden with cupcakes.

  We would sip orange, jasmine, and passionfruit green tea from this liberty tea set.  
All while enjoying easy company and delightful conversation.

And I would be wearing this Liberty dress.
 (which looks a little bit like the dress I'm wearing in the post below)
Mmmhmm.  It would be lovely.

Oh why can't the world be just a little bit smaller?
But since it isn't small, and you don't live in my backyard, I'm inviting you to party with me anyways : )
Blog style.
Jump in with us and check out the cool prizes you can win just by partyin' at 5 Minutes for Mom.com

That would be a party I would love to attend. :) I love the Liberty of London line from Target as well. I saw it in the store last month and fell in love. Then I came home and blogged about it. haha

I am so in love with that Target line too! I found this awesome box with their floral print on it and that's what I put all of my friend's baby shower gift in for her shower. It was so pretty and she can use the box for the nursery. My friend at church wore that dress on Easter and I loved it! I wish you really could have a party.....I would drive over to your state and visit you! :D

Abbey said...

that looks like fun, and those cupcakes look perfect! I know, Ive been eyeing the all the new clothes at Target, but you know they dont let you take the buggy in the dressing room anymore! What are you supposed to do put your baby on the floor???? oh well, i can always just look!

I would love coming to your party! It seems soooo girly and frilly. It would be totally different from any party I would host. LOL I miss those hours of thinking when nursing your baby in the middle of the night. So long ago!
