If you haven’t heard of 5 Minutes for Mom before, you’re really missing out! I’ve met both Janice and Susan in person and they are both amazing women! Not only are they bloggers, but they are moms and wives. This year, they are putting on the Ultimate Blog Party! You can win fabulous prizes and get to know other bloggers in the process.

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Be sure to check out the Ultimate Blog Party!

As at any party, you usually introduce yourself to the other guests. So, here we go.

My name is Shannon and I am a mom to 3 beautiful boys – Brian (6), Dallen (4), and Sam (almost 2). I live in California (Central Coast – near San Luis Obispo) and love to blog. Blogging has been my outlet – both emotionally and helping me to meet other moms experiencing the same things in life I go through. I have met AMAZING bloggers and PR reps. I never had any idea there were so many wonderful people out there. Thanks to my blog, I’ve had the opportunity to travel to Minnesota (General Mills Eat and Greet) and Ohio (Smucker’s Pantry). On these trips, I met amazing bloggers and had a chance to get up close and personal with some of my favorite companies!

I love to bake, go for drives, watch movies, eat chocolate (lol), hang out with friends and family, and blog (of course)! I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Family Science with a minor in Business Management. I grew up in Southern California and am the oldest of 4 girls. I’ll be the big “31” on May 7th. Oh and I’ve been blogging (seriously) for over a year!

Tell me more about you. ๐Ÿ™‚
