2011 Ultimate Blog Party

It's that time of year again. 5 Minutes for Mom is having their Ultimate Blog Party. The UBP was created in 2007 as a blog party for moms. Almost 1000 bloggers joined in. And, the rest is history. If you want to meet fabulous bloggers like yourself, be sure to visit 5 Minutes for Mom and link up. All the cool kids are doing it. No, seriously, they are.

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

If you're here visiting from the UBP, let me introduce myself. My name is Misty, but my blog friends call me hotpants™. I'll be 32 in 8 days. {I still feel 18, in case you were wondering.} I work full time as a Mortgage Post Closer. I have a weekly feature called The Talk of Tinseltown which is chock-full of celebrity gossip. I'm also mildly obsessed with vampires and Britney Spears. I tell it like it is, speak fluent sarcasm and can teach you how to get a great spray tan. To sum things up... I'm awesomesauce. We should be friends.


My husband , The Hero, is a firefighter. He loves weight lifting, Florida State football and is totally Team Jacob. He may drive me batty when he plays Call of Duty for hours on the couch, but he's a good egg. I think I'll keep him.


My kids, Little Man and Little Bit, are 5 and 2. Little Man loves computer games, Power Rangers and aggravating his little sister. Little Bit loves Dora, purses and being sassy. Without these two, my life would be extremely boring.


Then there's my bestie, Terri from Peace, Love & Applesauce. She's crafty, a lover of shoes and gives the best Dancing with the Stars recaps. I anticipate her witty commentary, and I don't even watch the show!



I hope you'll take a look around.

And, if you think we can be friends,

I think you should read this first.



If all of these things aren't enough to keep you here,

maybe a Vera Bradley Giveaway will do the trick.

Stay tuned for one on Monday!

I am loling. I think we can be friends, even if I only love Sookie-type vampires that live only in books and not on tv. ;)

I hope you'll stop on over and say hello as well!

Happy Partying!

SushiMama said...

Here from Ultimate Blog Party- I love your list. Everything can and SHOULD be related back to a quote from Friends. Gosh I miss that show.

I also love celebs, and my blog is all about my inability to keep my own secrets, but I think I'm pretty good at keeping others. We should totally be friends:)

Homemom3 said...

swinging by from the party to make sure I said hi. I totally hear you on the kids and life would be boring without them, I have four so there is never a dull moment. Heck, even when there is no one else would believe me. You have a lovely family. Oh and I LOVE your boots.

Christina said...

Stopping by from UBP11. We have something in common, I'm also a bit obsessed with the vampires. Ha! Hope you have fun at the party. Hope you can stop by my bloggy neck of the woods.

Prairie Patch said...

Following you and your wit now. :)

Stopping by UBP. I'm Ilana from Mommy Shorts. I just started this thing and I couldn't resist your blog name. I bet you get lots of visits because it!

I think we would have lots in common because I am also awesomesauce. Or at least my blog is mainly humor driven.

Hope you check it out: http://bit.ly/dRABgC

Phil said...

What?!!? No blog party for Dads? I'm outraged! I'd better come up with some ribbon car magnet to signify how oppressed blogging Dads are. We want equal rights. Where's our blog party?

Sara said...

Thanks for stopping by at my blog!! Yours looks like a lot of fun! ;)

Bethany@ImperfectMom said...

I read your "Things About Me", and I totally think we should be friends. Even though I'm not so much into vampires, we can both be awesome and sarcastic together! Thanks for visiting my blog, and happy partying!

Jilly said...

Is that bar in Acworth? I swear it looks familiar...

IzzyMom said...

I haven't done my UBP post yet *cringes* but I've been reading lots of others. I was intrigued by your blog's name so I clicked. Vampires and Vera Bradley? In the words of David Cassidy...I think I love you (in a totally non-creepy, unstalkery way, of course)

Kristina said...

I'm loving looking around your blog! I love the title. I grew up in East Texas and am at school in Central Texas. We know a thing or two about handbags and handguns! :)
