Its Time To Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Today is the beginning of the Ultimate Blog Party 2009 hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom. It is my first time to join in such a blog party. Now, let me introduce myself. My name is Christine, my online freinds call me Chris. I started blogging just last year. Mainly because I wanted to share my journey as a stay at home mom. Thus, the birth of Mommy Journey.

the mommy journey

I have 2 kids, Kyla (age 5) and Toby (age 2). I used to work as an IT professional, but chose to stay home when I gave birth to my eldest. Blogging has helped me reach out and connect to other mommies. Being at home most of the time, blogging has broadened my horizons and allowed me to meet online friends too.

I have also started hosting a weekly meme called Mommy Moments!

mommy moments

Its a picture meme wherein every mommy can share their photos and short stories of their little ones based on the week’s theme. We started just this January and I have been really happy with the outcome. I have met several moms and learned so much from each of their own stories.

I also participate on the following meme:

At the Well Blog Button




Here is a recent picture of me with the kids.

Now, head to 5 Minutes for Mom and check out the other sites! Its a great way to meet more bloggers and there are hundred of prizes at stake too.

My top 3 picks are:

INTL 18 – $50 gift certificate to Good for the Kids
INTL 30 — $15 eGift Card to
INTL 35 — Blog Designs by Sheila

So, what are you waiting for? Join us!

    Feel free to check out my blog, too! While I found the party too late to be part of the official prize giveaways, I do have a door prize at my blog: I’m giving away a free print copy of my book, “Two Snowflakes.” Here’s my address:

  29. Hi Chris! Thanks for stopping by my blog and I’ll have to come back and check yours out more. You have a beautiful family. I really like it when I can meet other people of various nationalities from outside the USA/Canada! 🙂

  30. I’m still just blog hopping through the Ultimate Blog Party link list. I didn’t want to miss out on any blogs… but I just ran out of party time. So… I’m still working my way down the list… even though the party is technically over.
    Stop in on my blog if you’ve got a minute! Or… if you’re still up for a party post… you could stop by my party anytime!
