did someone say blog party?*

Who doesn't love a good party, and when you've got a guest list of over 1,000 it IS a party! freshly baked is excited to be a part of 5 Minutes for Mom's second annual Ultimate Blog Party. Yes, this post is probably a lot less visually stimulating than others you've read from the Mr. Linky list but I party in my pj's most of the time and it's not a pretty picture. ;) Of course my partner LeShan is always dolled up and ready to go so I'm happy to include a picture of her. (You can thank me later, LeShan.)

We're two moms with 8 children between us (no, that 8 isn't a typo and includes a set of twins) and a business we're still trying to get off the ground. Well, georgie tees has hovered a few inches off the ground for the first couple years and we're ready for it to finally take off. We have a feeling 2008 is the year great things will happen, so if you've got a dream this is the year to go for it! Our blog has everything from recipes to tips for mompreneurs to fashion trends (LeShan dishes up some of the best fashion trends and advice out there) to sites and products we love.

Enough about us in this post (if you want to read more you can read our story here). Head on over to the Ultimate Blog Party for your chance to win some great prizes. Because there's two of us we would have to share any prize we won (at least we're good at sharing) so our favorites are:

And if those prizes are taken we'd love any prize in the form of a gift certificate so we can easily share the win!

To really make this a party we're giving away one of our "mama lisa" tees (a $38 value; winner's choice). We will draw the winner from the comments on this post. Taking a cue from another Ultimate Blog Party giveaway at La Vie de Laurie (she's giving away an awesome "Save the Ta-Tas" tee so head on over and enter to win), leaving a comment below gets you one entry but posting about our giveaway on your blog is worth three entries! Be sure and include a link to your blog post in your comment. The winner will be drawn on Saturday, March 15th.

Party, party, party! (And yes, that's to the tune of "toga, toga, toga!") --Emily

**Congratulations to Alexa, the winner of our "mama lisa" giveaway!** Alexa will receive our "mama lisa" tee in honeydew. Thanks to everyone who joined us for the Ultimate Blog Party. We had a blast!
