It's a BLOG Party over here!

It's not a block party, it's a BLOG PARTY!


...but kinda the same idea!

This is the first time I'll be participating in 5MinutesForMom.com's Ultimate Blog Party.  It's one fun packed week filled with getting to know other moms who blog, yes, and those few dads who blog, and and a chance to win TONS of FREE prizes.

The prize pool is valued at $21,200 as of today!  Who wouldn't want to win some of these great prizes:
  • 100% Egyptian cotton Palm Beach Blue curtains by Sterling Anabella, worth $325
  • $450 Shopping Spree at Mia Mariu’s natural cosmetics
  • 4G FLIP Ultra HD Video Camera - value $220

Here's an agenda of all the fun that's going on this week:


....and for those visiting for the first time here's the down low on 
McKinney Mommas




I am a work-a-holic and thought I'd need something to "keep me busy" after having my first bambino in February 2011.  Well as you all know, taking care of a little peanut is a full time job, but I like the "adult interaction" blogging gives me.   I post family and pregnancy (oops, pregnant with #2, due July) related product reviews, restaurant reviews, local activities and giveaways for moms and families in the North Dallas, Collin County (McKinney), Texas area and across the US! Taking a break from my 10 year social work career with foster care teens to raise my little one and explore life as a full time mom in the 'burbs of Dallas. Self proclaimed foodie, Yelp Elite Reviewer, restaurant bloodhound and local cultural events junkie! 

and that's all I have to say about that!

  4. Ok, you have me hooked and I am a new follower. Have a happy rest of the UBP!!!

    Just out of curiousity, have you tried any vegan (plant based, no animal products) resturants in the Dallas area? We would love to take a weekend trip up there sometime, but fear that we would not find a place to eat.

    1. Whoo Hoo, I love to "hook em" ;-) All Good Cafe in Deep Ellum is a great "green friendly" / farmer's market, local slow food etc. restaurant...but not totally vegan. There was one by my old house in North Dallas, but I never tried it called Bliss Raw Café & Elixir Bar. Check out YELP.com and type in Vegan and you'll find a few scattered around. Good luck! :-)
