AboutOne Summer Block Party!!!!!

It's summertime in the blogosphere and most of us are running around enjoying the extra day light and (hopefully) a vacation or two. Soaking up the sun, hanging with the family, making memories etc.

This can be a pretty quiet time on the interwebs so we decided to let you guys know that we are blogging this summer by throwing a summer block party. (Who doesn’t love a good party?) Since parties are always fun with gifts we decided to have a giveaway with lots of prizes and lots of chances to enter.

Six bloggers teamed up with each other and AboutOne (you can read my review about their service & how much I adore them here) to bring you:

I love the health tracker bit on About One. I always assumed that I would be able to keep up with EVERYTHING but forgot more than I care to admit.

The health tracker - so easy to keep track of the little's one immunization schedule. I think I would like the education tracker, too, once she is in school.

Eena0605 said...

I would say my current favorite song for summer is "Summer Nights" by Rascall Flatts. Also, anything by Journey - not sure why...

I left my AboutOne Comment at Kathy's site.

My all time favorite summer song is: Sittin on the Dock of the Bay!

I agree with everyone else : tracking health records is huge!

seussgirl said...

Hmm..favorite summer song...right now, I'm loving "Knee Deep" by the Zac Brown Band. I also love "Redneck Yaught Club". Apparently, I go country when it gets hot. :)

I like all of the information that AboutOne would help organize about my life. I currently have no actual address book, a giant pile of receipts, etc. – I think you get the idea.

Amanda said...

The first summer time song that comes to mind is Summertime by Lone Star.

Emily said...

Favorite summer song is definitely Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, a little odd, definitely fun!

Already completed the mandatory entry on Jen's blog but thought I would chime in re: my favorite summer music for an additional entry. Anything by Zac Brown Band is perfect for a summer night! Thanks for the giveaway!

Receipts management looks most interesting to me.
