I love parties!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Since I just started my blog, I have been looking for ways to connect with other bloggers. Then I heard about this party. I am excited!

I love parties, first of all! I throw parties for anything I can think of…sports, birthdays, holidays, end of summer, beginning of summer, etc. I really enjoy opening my home to my friends. I like cleaning for a purpose (it’s the only way it gets done), and I love baking and sometimes cooking. So, I had to join this party. If I could share the baked goods I would’ve made a ton! However, since I’d like to remain at my current weight, I didn’t make any baked goods. Sad, I know.

Secondly, I really enjoy blogging! It’s been my way to share what I’m thinking and feeling. going from a professional to a stay-at-home mom was much harder than I anticipated. Blogging lets me feel connected and gives me a place to vent my frustrations and share my joys. I am just getting started, but already I love it!

Anyway, I am a stay-at-home mom with the cutest and funniest little girl around. She constantly makes me laugh (when she’s not making me tear my hair out…kidding…sort of!). I live in New England (the cold section of New England) where we’re still waiting for spring. It’s coming, I can tell, but it just isn’t quite here yet. My husband and I met about 6 years ago and have been married for almost 5 years.

I thought I’d add a picture of Baby Girl’s first birthday party. There were going to be streamers and such, but I got so caught up in the cupcakes that I forgot. So, she’ll have streamers next year, and hey, she’s one. She probably didn’t notice.

There are some great giveaways. Here are my three favorites:

6 – Hand Stamped Personalized Necklace valued at $48 The Double Stacked A Lot Of Love.

22 – One winner will receive a fun Beach themed gift basket filled with an assortment of hair bows and clippies from ribbonrockstar hairbows. (Prize Value: $50)

32 – $25 Target Gift Card!

I would also love to get any of these : 37, 39, 59, 61, 73, 76, and USC 24.

Welcome to my blog! Enjoy the party!
