Blog Party, w00t!

Ultimate Blog Party 2008
Green Mommy Musings is jumping on into the Ultimate Blog part hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom. Since we're a brand new site, we thought we'd make our post a house-warming party of sorts...and hopefully Miss Manners won't be too appalled that we are throwing our own house-warming!

For those of you bloggers making your way here for the first time, welcome! At Green Mommy Musings, along with our partner site, Green Mommy Guide we are dedicated to helping moms go green and stay fabulous! With all due respect to Al Gore, we don't believe that going green has to be "inconvenient", and we are dedicated to showing moms the many options that are out there that are kinder to the environment and to their babies than conventional products, without being condescending or intimidating. To see our origins, scroll down to our first post from not-so-long-ago (we're new, remember?) called Here We Go (Green)! Or if you're feelin' lazy just click.



Oh, and what's a housewarming without a plant for a gift? We're giving away an adorable Eggling crack & grow Blooming Flower! If you want one, leave a comment with your email address so I can contact you.

There are so many cool prizes to be won at this year’s Ultimate Blog Party, but my top three picks would be:

1) The Blog Makeover from Shauna from See My Designs

2) The 12X12 Custom Wall Canvas offered by Ju JuBeane Boutique

3) The Wrap-N-Mat and Chico shopping bag from Nature Moms

And if my top three picks are already chosen, I’d love any of the following (in order of preference):71, 45, 117, 137, or anything else related to babies (I have 3 month old), going green, or online business, as I have my own blog (obviously) and website.
