It's Party Time!

My blogaversary is coming up! It snuck up on me. I can't believe I've been posting for almost a year. Well, I have to celebrate! And I hope you'll join me.


In honor of my one year of blabbing I am going to have a Blogaversary Blogfest! And what is a party without food? Nada party. So link up and on August 30th serve us your favorite party recipe, or any yummy favorite food or drink. (pictures are also nice)

Of course there will be some prizes! Here's how I will do it:
1. Followers who link up get a point (old or new).
2. Advertisers on blogs, twitter whatever each get another point (let me know)
3. If you join because of someone else participating, tell me who it was so they can get a referral point. It pays to advertise!

For each point, your name goes into the hat that many times. After the link closes I will use Randomizer to draw winners. 1st place = $20 Amazon GC, 1st, 2nd and 3rd all get an ad on my blog, plus an interview post =)

But wait, there's more!
Please comment on the recipes.
I will be totaling comments to see which recipes receive the most and I will put the top three into my Lazy Housewife book! and post their recipes on my sidebar with a link =)

It's my first blogfest so I can't wait to see how this goes and who brings what!
