Ultimate Blog Party 2010 - 5MinutesForMom.com

al Blog Party!!YAAA,this is my first one to be a part of and I'm super excited! I was introduced to the Ultimate Blog party 2010 by Angela at Mommy PR who knows about all the good stuff...

Being a part of the Blog party we have to post about our selves. So here goes!

I am a Christian (maybe you can tell? lol) entrepreneur Mom of 3.

My kiddos are
Desmond II (just turned 5),



 Taylor (she is 3.5) and


 Jordan (he is almost 2).
 Yes they are close but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Shortly after my oldest son was born I noticed signs of seizures and after a long drawn out process he was diagnosed with epilepsy at 20 months of age. (12-29-06, I'll never forget).

 Thankfully my other two have a clean bill of health.

Its been a struggle, ups and downs and in the process I was dubbed resource queen (most moms are huh?)  and try my best to make monthly donations to help the Epilepsy foundation or others relating to helping children.

I'm the minimalist mom who never sells, always gives things away and cleans with a toothbrush. (Though my house isnt spotless all the time, just a little OCD). I'd rather give then receive,  that's just me :D

I am a full-time single work at home mom as a graphic designer, blogger (please follow me and come back to visit soon), It Works Distributor and TVI Agent.

Blogging is my ME time and I really enjoy it.

You can find me on
I hope to see you there too :D

  6. I am very glad we "met" at the Live party at UBP10. What a story you have. I have a friend who had 2 children who died of Alpers (they had many many seizures). Praying for you, my new friend! Look forward to getting to know you more.

  7. Just stopping by from the party. I really like the idea of living a minimalistic lifestyle. I think it was Gandhi that said, Live Simply so that others may simply live. I have always loved that quote.

    Hope you have a great time at the party this week and meet lots of great bloggers and friends! Stop by and say hi when you get the chance.

  10. It's nice to 'meet' you! I'm becoming more of a minimalist every day...and I usually give things away rather than sell them...it comes back to you (and multiplied) doesn't it?! Your kiddos are adorable--and I admire you for doing what you can for epilepsy! Hope to 'see' you over at my place!
