Ultimate Blog Party ‘10 Apr 08

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Hello fellow party goers! Welcome to my lil spot on the big world wide web. My name is Erin, and although I am usually the shy one at events that I’m not hosting (more on that in a future blog post), I am going to do my best to create a fun-filled party atmosphere here during the UBP.

What's a party without food and a few balloons?

Oh yeah, and presents too! 😛

I am new to blogging, my blog just went live in March. I am first and foremost a stay at home mom for my beautiful 15 month old daughter Alyson. In addition to all things mom, I also enjoy all things FOOD and NUTRITION. One day I hope to go back to school to become a Registered Dietitian. Reading and World of Warcraft round out my list of personal likes. I also like when my husband can tear himself away from both his school work (he’s working on his doctorate in Business Administration) and his work work and we can spend time together as a family. Any activity that brings us together is a good one. We recently got to spend the day at Epcot with our daughter as part of our anniversary weekend at Walt Disney World.

Let’s see… Other random things about me… I was born, raised, and still live in Central Florida and am not sure I could survive in a place that doesn’t have theme parks and beaches all within an hour’s drive. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in the Management of Information Systems, but I discovered that wasn’t my passion in life and one day hope to pursue another degree. I am a Certified Pharmacy Technician and am really proud of that. Even though my previous employer didn’t think it was a stepping stone to bigger better things, I do, and know that there are bigger, better pharmacies out there who do as well.

Please feel free to peruse my blog and leave constructive comments and criticisms.


Almost forgot to list my prize choices! There are a ton of great giveaways going on during UBP, but my top 3 choices are:

#71 $50 Bear Bucks Build A Bear Workshop gift card (Always a favorite place to visit at the mall!)

#15 $15 Disney Store gift card

#83 Disney Mickey 5-in-1 Tasty Baker by Pop Art (My husband grew up a Disney kid, so this will be a house favorite!)

And if those are already claimed, any of the following would be great to acquire as well:

32, 107, USC3, USC15, USC32, 49, 25, 38, 48, USC41, 61, 37

      Unfortunately right now I can only be followed on Twitter as I’m having some issues getting an RSS feed going. Hopefully that will be resolved this weekend. I’m Midnite592 on Twitter, and there should be a blue follow link on the right side of the page. I’ll double check that when I get the RSS feed up and running.

      I’m glad you stopped by! 🙂

    Hey there! I love food and nutrition too. Although I can’t let go of my sweet tooth. And I have been to florida once (that’s my only florida connection for you) but it was beautiful! I am a Cali girl though and enjoy nice weather and beaches too!
    15 months – a fun and BUSY age!

    So happy you stopped by from the party! Your fun weekend at Epcot sounds fabulous! Happy partying!

  13. I’m so jealous of your themepark, warm weather world. And of anyone who is close to a Disney park, really.
    I make a point of going to California as often as I can, but I can find a beach in twenty minutes too, just about as far away from Florida as you can get in North America. Not quite, but close enough.
    It’s nice to meet you, your daughter is a beauty!

    It’s nice to meet you.
    I was born in `Daytona Beach` and was raised in `Crescent City` (home of the Catfish Festival)
    I later moved to N.C., S.C. and GA. I miss being close to the beach, watching the rockets go off, and going to Disney World.

    Dropping in from the UBP! Wish I was IN Florida right now. NEED.the.beach. Georgia neighbor here.

  19. Amanda says:

    Welcome to the blogging world and the party! Nice to see another gamer about. We (dh and I) come from an old school, tabletop RPG background and have moved on to video games but have avoided MMOs for the time-sink aspect. Not that that stops him from spending hours on end on other games… Anyway, nice to meet you, and thanks for stopping by.

  20. Andrea S. says:

    I agree with you that becoming a certified pharmacy technician is a BIG deal and is a major stepping stone. Congratulations to you for completing a wonderful degree.

    I’ll be back to check you out! Just stopping by from the ultimate blog party hosted by 5 minutes for mom.
