Blog Party Time

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

During the week of March 7-14, 2008, 5 Minutes for Mom is hosting the “Ultimate Blog Party” where bloggers write a little post about themselves and then sign Mr. Linky over at 5 Minutes for Mom inviting other bloggers to stop by. This is our opportunity to meet new friends and party blogger-style at the Ultimate Blog Party 2008!


Most everything you ever wanted to know about me is included in my blog! I am going to share these things with you by sending you to the proper pages and/or posts so you can learn more about me. Welcome to my world at Mercedes’ World! Let the party begin!

  • About Me: To learn more about me, you should check out my About Me Page. It includes who I am, what I do, and what I love. Great pictures and slideshows are included. Come on over and check me out!

  • Why I Blog: Want to know why I blog? Or my disclaimer? Check out my Why I Blog Page. Includes a hilarious (but silly) video there too!

  • Out of the Mouths of Babes: I am a Kindergarten teacher and I hear some of the funniest and sweetest things children will say. If you enjoy this, Check out my Out of the Mouths of Babes Page. Feel free to add anything to our ongoing list!

  • Dogs: I love animals and especially dogs. I have an 11 year old Dalmatian~Patch. He is my life. I have a lot of posts about Patch, especially about his journey for the last 3 months. He has been sick and was diagnosed with Lymphoma, but we switched Vets and he was correctly diagnosed~NOT lymphoma. I also love humor, pictures, and poems about dogs. Check out my Dogs Page to learn more!

  • Blinkies: I love blinkies. The blinkies I collect describe me. If you want to see who I am Blinkie-Style, check out my Blinkies Page.

  • Memes: I have become addicted to memes. I participate in memes daily now. Check out my Daily Blog Memes Page to see which memes I participate in and to learn more about memes. I have also created a new site that I host two memes at. Feel free to visit me at Mercedes Rocks where I host Scrumptious Sunday and Hump Day Humor.

  • Guest Book: Please sign my Guest Book! I love visitors and comments!

  • Where Else am I?: I have a few other places that I am located at too. Feel free to browse through my other homes.


There are some awesome prizes that will be awarded at this year’s Ultimate Blog Party. If I have to choose, my top six picks would be:

  1. #24: Blog Design by Sweet ‘n Simple Design: I would use this for Mercedes Rocks.

  2. #60: $25 gift certificate from by Judy at Welcome to My World of Dreams. I love to read!

  3. # 9: $20 gift certificate to FeeFiFoto by FeeFiFoto. You know I will be putting a picture of Patch (my dalmatian) on it!

  4. #91: Burt’s Bees Naturally Ageless skin care line by Geggie at So, What Else? What Else? What Else? I love Burt’s Bees.

  5. #103: Pink Brick Box Play Set provided by Lego. I would use this in my Kindergarten classroom.

  6. #116: Autographed Copy of True Believer by Nicholas Sparks and a $5 Starbucks Gift Card by Amy at Signs, Miracles and Wonders. I love Nicholas Sparks and Starbucks!

I hope you have enjoyed yourself at my Blog-Party at Mercedes’ World! Please come back anytime!
