Welcome to our weekly roundup here at “5 Minutes Around the Blogosphere”.
As you know, you can come back all week and add a post or giveaway to our Mister Linky. Be sure to check back often, as new links will be added daily. You don’t want to miss out on something fun.
Introducing our new Around the Blogosphere editor, Marissa. She lives in sunny San Diego with her husband and she spends her days with her adorable two year old son.
You can also find Marissa blogging away at Mama Sparkles where she writes about all the “sparkles” in life – anything mommy, baby or kid related, restaurants, books, fun websites, product reviews, contests and just things she likes in general.
Now, onto the Giveaways….
