UBP 2008

Dear Me,

It isn't too late to join. Yehey! :)

I have been meaning to hop in the fun the moment I signed in months ago. But I just seem not to remember making this post
.

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

5 Minutes For Mom, a fab site for moms, is hosting The Ultimate Blog Party beginning March 7-14. Jump in, have fun and best of all, meet new people! :)

Sounds exciting, isn't it?

Anyway, welcome to this side of my world as I participate in this blog party.

Call me
Ivan Girl and I'm currently a SAHM (stay-at-home-mom) to my 1st baby named Carlos Miguel. He just turned five (5) months. :)

I love to write stuff, diary-style. I used to have notebooks turned to journals when I was younger. So when I discovered the fun of blogging online, I joined the throngs of bloggers out there beginning 2003.

Being a personal blog, nobody should expect anything less than this. It's all about me and my world. I love a lot of stuff. I love to do a lot of things. I love to go places. And in this blog, one will bumped into tidbits about my sentiments (happy thoughts, solitary musings, insane rantings), love for reading and books in general, itchy feet for travelling, exploring nature and the outdoors by mountainclimbing, compulsive need to forever have a taste of coffee, chocolate, french fries/potato chips, inherent desire to frequently visit bookshops, have coffee and chat with good friends and learn a new thing or two in any way I can.

Ultimate dream: to be a happy, contented person and celebrating the fullness of life with my parents, siblings, hubby and baby. :)



PS. It's a week long party of meeting new bloggers, reading interesting blogs and a chance to snag fabulous prizes and giveaways! So what are you waiting for? *winks*

  7. Thank you so much for coming by The Mom Crowd!!

    I was just in Cebu City in December visiting Faith Tabernacle Church. I also got to go to Cuaming Island.

    I brought my then 7 month old baby with me all the way there from Texas. We had an awesome time and I miss my friends in the Philippines.

    Oh - I miss the bananas and mangoes too. All the food was so great. I need some pancit now.

    Jollybee!

My dad was stationed at Clark AFB in the early 90's...we evacuated when Mt. Pinatubo erupted.
