Let's Party! (And come enter my blog giveaway!)


Like most Filipinos, I arrive late to parties, and this one is no exception -- but better late than never! 5 Minutes for Mom is hosting The Ultimate Blog Party, with over 1,000 blogs participating and over 150 prizes to win. Check out their awesome prize list; here are my faves (I sure hope I win them!!):


* I could sure use some pampering from Lush (#114), courtesy of After a Cup of Coffee.


* The Pea would looove the $50 gift certificate at Emily Rose (prize #63), so she can get her American Girl doll lots of cool stuff. She'd also love a Pink Brick Box Play Set (prize #103) from Lego;


* Alfie would definitely drool over the chocolate package (#70) from The Chocolistas, and if he doesn't get it, I'm sure he could be consoled with a $20 Amazon gift certificate (#140, #60) from the MommyDaddy blog or Judy.


* Who would turn down some cold, hard cash (#55, #59)? Yeah, baby, Kristin and Lori sure know what people want!



But Wait! 'Tis more blessed to give than to receive, so in the spirit of celebrating and spreading the love around, I'm hosting a little drawing of my own! Just leave a comment here and you'll be entered to win a year's subscription to either Bon Appetit (12 issues) or Budget Travel (10 issues), your choice. I'll pick the winner randomly on Monday, March 17 (sorry, this is for US residents only), so be sure to leave your blog URL or email address so I can contact you.
