Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Are you ready for a party? I sure am! Yesterday just happened to be my birthday so I am in a celebratory mood and excited to participate in the annual Ultimate Blog Party at 5 Minutes For Mom!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011


If you are a new visitor from UBP11 then welcome to my humble little blog! My name is Marianna and I am a Connecticut green mom blogger. I have 4 rambunctious little boys that keep me on my toes: the oldest is 6, the twins are 3 and the little guy is 15 months.

I started blogging 2 years ago to share my green journey and hopefully help others take simple steps to be a little more green. You will find lots of green tips here as well as eco-friendly product reviews. Recently I added some local flare to Green Mama's Pad so if you live in or near Connecticut you may want to check out my Green Connecticut section. And of course I also blog about life with my boys - which is wonderful and crazy.

Now the great thing about the Ultimate Blog Party is hopping around to all of the blogs and finding new ones to follow.  The last time I participated in 2009 I really had a lot of fun and added some great new blogs to my Google reader so I am hoping to do the same this year. Plus there are some really awesome door prizes once again. Here are a few that I have my eye on:

- $100 gift card to Target and a copy of Totally Desperate Mom, Provided by: Wendy Hagen, author of Totally Desperate Mom
- Six mom renewal coaching sessions, Provided by: Stacey Hoffer Weckstein, The Mom Renewal Project
- $50 cash transferred to winner’s paypal account, Provided by: Lucy Montgomery
- Choice of a $50 Amazon, Target or Best Buy gift card, Provided by: Alexandria Campbell of Before The Baby Wakes

So thanks for stopping by for the party! I hope you take a look around my blog and maybe even follow. Be sure to leave your blog link in Mr Linky below so I can stop by and visit you as well. You can also find me on Twitter @GreenMamasPad and on Facebook at Facebook.com/GreenMamasPad.

Happy partying!
