Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Ultimate Blog Party 2010 – Apr 9-16 @5M4M – Win lots of prizes!

Celebrate GOOD TIMES, COME ON!!! I’m comin’ out so you better get this PAR-TAY started!!! Okay, not sure what’s happening I’M A NEWBEE, so bare with me ladies, and maybe I’ll get on a roll. Hi! My name is XmasDolly aka Dolly, and I’m married to a wonderful man, musician, and truck driver. I’m pushing the big SIX ZERO this year. Yep, 60! I know I can’t believe it myself, but hey what’s in a number, right? God luv ya! HOW U DOIN? I started blogging on my birthday last year, so I have a “1” year anniversary coming up on June 13, 2010. I’d really like to do something special on my blog, but I just haven’t decided what yet. So, stay tuned, don’t touch that dial, we’ll be right back after this break for station identification. ~hehe~ Now, I’m a retired legal secretary, and now I run a business out of my home as a transcriptionist. It’s a few extra dollars, and it keeps me busy sometimes. I’ve typed up interviews of Hugh Hefner, Sam Lay also closed captioning for Speed and Monster Jam just to name a few. I am a mother of five children. One child passed of S.I.D.S in 1977, and my other four beautiful children have given me nine beautiful grand-children.
Why did I start blogging? My daughter whom you all may know already is NightOwlMaMa. I’m so proud of her. She’s doing a bang up job over there you really need to go check her out. Plus she started something fairly new you may be interested in. It’s called Content for Comments:

Content for Comments comes out late Saturday/early Sunday. So go link up your reviews, crafts, recipes any post you would love to get comments on. Man, my kid really got some brrrrrains, huh? OKAY, THERE’S YOUR PLUG, BABY GIRL~ All my idea! I hope it’s a nice surprise for her. So, go put your name and link on her linky! I’ll come see you & give you my two cents! LOL Anyway it all started with a diet I had started last year. I lost about 32 lbs., but I really haven’t been keeping track of it lately due to trying to Spinal Stenosis really acting up again & a few other problems. I’m on medical disability, and that’s a long drawn out story that’s very boring, so we won’t go there. So, I asked my daughter what should I write about. She said whatever you like (isn’t she cute)! Be it a product or movie, family, whatever. Well, I wrote about what I knew the best, and that’s my family. I’ve made so many new, and wonderful friends (and I don’t say that lightly), from all over the U.S., and I think further. I’m totally addicted to blogging, and give-aways are so cool, and doing them is just as cool. I love researching the product, and finding out all I can to share with you. Okay, now there’s this Blog Party 2010. I’m new, so I have no idea what I’m doing. If I’ve done something wrong or not enough I hope someone let’s me know. I think now is the time I’m supposed to put what I’d like to win. Hmmm.. My ultimate Numero Uno pic is (and I want it so very bad – or someone could tell my husband I’d like one for my birthday ~hehe~ wink-wink, nudge-nudge): **GRAND PRIZE at the Ultimate Blog Party 2010 is a Toshiba Satellite L505D-ES5025** Yessss. I’ve got my eye on the BIG ONE! Isn’t she beautiful??!! WOO HOO!

    All great choices. Good luck hope you win something Wonderful


    You are cute! This is my second year and trust me, I’m still learning the ropes. I’m glad that you’re joining the party.

    You know, as much as I would like to win the laptop, I totally forgot to list that in the prizes I’d like to win! 🙂 I guess it just wasn’t meant to be.

    Enjoy the party!


    Thanks for stopping by – it’s never too late to join the party! I think your post was a perfect introduction and it’s great that you’ve had such a fun year of blogging. I hope you have a wonderful time at the UBP and meet even more amazing friends! 🙂


    Well, we meet yet again! Just hopping over from Content for Comments and there you are. 🙂 Oh what addicts we have become. Is there a Bloggers Anonymous anywhere? It seem that there is rehab for everything else (alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex), why not that? Do you think we could also get covered under the American Disability Act like the Alcoholics? Oh, I crack my self up. lol

    Happy Monday!!


    So we’re all here now! Awesome!!! I hope we all win something fun!


    I’m with you! I’d love to have that Toshiba to work with. How fab would that be. Nice to see another grandmother in the mix of bloggers. Welcome!


    Hi Dolly. Gosh you remind me of my own mom. I smiled all through your post! I’m also on my own weight loss journey and blogging about it. Great to meet you!
