Where's the Party? I wanna free my soul!

I'm so excited... I get to attend the Ultimate Blog Party at 5 Minutes for Mom twice! Artsy Mamas is hosting a giveaway and attending the party! And now Bona Fida Mama is attending. Yeeeeee Haw!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

It's not too late to participate, so be sure and go there and join in on the fun. You can win prizes too. Pretty good motivation, huh?

As for prizes, I'd love to have an Ergo Baby Carrier, some matching flip flops from Top It Off Accessories for me and the Donut, or a custom handmade retro apron from BooJiBoo.

Other prizes that I totally dig include numbers US 37, US 35, INTL 57, INTL 56, 106, 105, or 68.

If you are just making the rounds, let me introduce myself! My name is Mandy and I blog here at Bona Fide Mama. I'm 31 years old, a Christ follower, and I live with my hottie husband and three lovely children in Murfreesboro, TN. I blog about my family, running a non-profit organization called Artsy Mamas, my late mother, homeschool/unschool or "natural learning", healthy living and eating, raising my kids outside of the box, and, most recently, caring for a newborn and dealing with PPD and the other fun things that come along after having given birth. I'm passionate about breastfeeding though I hate it and I had my last two children at home. We are not your average, typical American family and we are passionate about ministering to people about or "weird" lifestyle. I would love to help you with your nutrition and alternative medicine questions. You can contact me at or you can inquire about my organization at
