Ultimate Blog Party ’09

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Welcome fellow party-goers!  This is my first year attending the Ultimate Blog Party on 5 Minutes for Mom so excuse me if I am a bit of a wallflower.  I couldn’t find anywhere what the appropriate dress was for the occassion so I hope my PJ pants and T-shirt are acceptable!

My name is Bridgette and I am a full time working Mom of two beautiful girls, Lily (4) and Aubrie (1).  I work outside the home as a Lab Technician and live in a suburb of New Orleans.  I started my blog in July of 2008 which has grown beyond what I ever imagined.  The Not-So-Blog is primarily a Mom and baby product review and giveaway blog with a few surprises along the way.  I am fortunate enough to also be a partner at MomDot and have met many amazing mom bloggers through this community.

I was fortunate enough to win the Label Daddy full ride sponsorship to BlogHer ’09 (see me make a complete fool of myself here), so I hope to be able to meet a lot of you there! So, hope you take a look around my little home on the blogosphere and maybe grab a Blog Pop while you’re here!

  2. It is nice to meet you! This is the first time I’ve participated in the blog party! Don’t be shy, just jump into the middle!

  3. Nice to meet another working mom blogger out here! Stop by my “house” if you get a chance!

  4. I used to work from home in PJs and slippers. It’s not a bad way to make a living.
    These days I work with the hubby, in self storage management. (still working from home)
    Glad you joined in the fun.
    Enjoy the party!
    It’s another brisk windy day in Vegas!

  9. Hi! I LOVE to find blogs of other working moms!

    Where near NO do you live? My family moved from the Alexandria,La., area a few years ago to Florida.

    My blog is Not-So-Superwoman, so I just had to stop by Not-So-Blog as I am doing my party hopping!

    I love your blog design. It’s so bright and fun. I’m hoping for a face-lift on mine soon. I need to redecorate!

    Blog Party Woohoo! Talk about fashionably late, right, sorry. I have been sick which left me in a fog all last week, so I am still trying to make my rounds. Better late than never I figured. Anyway, hope you had a great week at the UBP. Hope to see you again sometime!
