The ultimate blog party!

Welcome to any new visitors from the Ultimate Blog Party at 5 minutes for mom - a great way to find new blogs, win prizes and waste hours and hours and hours exploring new areas of the mommy blogosphere.

I'm a thirty-one year old mom of one fabulous eighteen-month old named Kiernan.

I've been blogging since Kiernan was born and I blog mostly about him: the struggles with no sleep, with milk and soy protein intolerances, the funny moments, and lots and lots of photos! I also like to blog about thing things that make me go AS IF!!

I live in Ottawa, Ontario where it's been the snowiest winter I've ever experienced! (check back soon for photos of the crazy snow)

I've had less time for blogging in the last six months since I went back to work full time and started an online business selling children's clothing from Canadian companies with my good friend Vicky.

Say hi while you're here and I'll make sure to come and visit your blog. I also hope you come back - I'm looking to make lots of new bloggy friends!

And check out the blog party at 5 minutes for moms... I'd love to win some of the great prizes, especially:

INTL 11 –2 Night Stay for 2 in Italy from Cherrye
if I win this, I'll have no excuse not to plan our Italy trip :)

INTL 9 — Pocket Place Mat

And if you're in Canada and want to take part in the blog party, I've just donated a $25 gift certificate to Apples'n'Oranges because it's sad when we don't get prizes because we aren't in the US ;)

I have one child, Matthew, 18-months old too, but I can't get him to stand still like your Kiernan. How do you do it? LOL

Happy blog party hopping!

Hey Lara,

Nice to meet you! How cool that you and your friend started your own online children's clothing store...very cool! I just started my own online travel web site (about 4 months ago) and am loving being able to travel more, spend less, and write off my vacations. Gotta love that!

It is so great to meet you and so many other amazing blogging moms!

Come and visit when you get some time...

I'm always complaining about winter. Can live without the cold & snow, but we have nothing compared to what y'all have gotten.
