The ULTIMATE Blog Party!



Well, this is my first Blog Party, and I have a great giveaway for you guys here!

Since the 5 Minutes for Mom Ultimate Blog Party is about getting to know one another, I'll tell you a little about myself:

*I like to be organized, but since having two boys that has kinda flown out the window.

*I work from home for the most awesome real estate marketing company, Dakno Marketing. I LOVE working there and am so thankful to work from home.

*I currently live in Mobile, AL for my husband's job, but our real home is in Raleigh, NC.

*I have moved shortly after the birth of both our sons. I have joked to my hubby that having a baby is a sure way to get him transferred somewhere.

*I went to NC STATE UNIVERSITY and am a die hard Wolfpack fan. We go to all the football games and try to see a few basketball games when we can get tickets.

*I majored in English lit and dream of teaching medieval literature at the college level someday.

*My hubby and I met at a party at school. We connected because we both had 3 jobs to get through school and a huge love for ketchup.

*We have been married 5 years this May and I am amazed at how quickly time flew-married life has been so fun!

*I am really short. Like crazy short, esp when I stand next to my hubby barefoot.

*I loved being pregnant and want to have a third baby for sure.

*I love wearing my babies, and just got my first mei tai carrier-yes, it is love! And I got it crazy cheap at a consignment sale.

*I am an Ebay, Craigs List, Consignment Sale junkie. I will hunt for an item I want til I find it at a bargain. I rarely pay full price for anything.

*I've blogged on and off since 2006, but really jumped into it this past year. I LOVE all the great friends I have made.
You can find out more about me here!

*One crazy, random fact: I have been sky diving and loved it. I'd love to go again, actually.

Thanks for stopping by, introduce yourself and tell me one crazy, random fact about you! I am excited to get to know all of you and read about you on your blogs! You can also check out all the great ULTIMATE Blog Party fun going on at 5 Minutes for Mom!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Nice to "meet" you! It's great to get to know a little bit about you, although I have to say, I can't believe you love being preggo! Ug! I just had my third, and while it is well worth it, I DO NOT like being pregnant! :)

I am a NC gal as well, but we live in the mountains. We are also big Tarheel fans but love State better than Duke hehe ;).

So glad to "meet" you and stop on by our home to enter prizes and enjoy some banana pudding.

The more I read your blog the more I love it! I'm also a Carolina girl. My dad went to NCSU and I've been to many a Wolfpack game. When I was a little girl I wanted to be Ms Wuf "when I grew up." Thanks for blogging...it's a great read!

Yes, this party thing is lots of fun. I am so happy to meet you! I have two boys too (although much older). I have never been skydiving though, so you are brave, girl!

CSO said...

My first UBP, too -- and we live in Raleigh (although I'm a Tar Heel first, I do like the Pack). I also enjoyed being preggers (made me feel powerful), but am done with that for a whole host of reasons. Come over and visit at juniandpip.blogspot.com.

Manda said...

Howdy... jumping on over for the Blog Party!!!! Finally someone else who loves being pregnant. I absolutely loved every bit of it... minus the puking. I have three little ones and one day hope to have a fourth. Great meeting you. Hope you are enjoying the party as much as I am!

Miche,
It's so nice to "meet" you. I'm a friend of Patty and Ed. Patty has told me all about how wonderful you are and how awesome your family is. I know she'll have a great time there with you in Alabama even though we'll miss both of them while they are away. I have sent the link to your blog to our DD who is here in Wilmingotn. She and her husband are both NCSU grads (as are our other two (DD and DSIL) in Raleigh). She homeschools her two daughters and does a little blogging herself. I'm sure she will enjoy yours. I did!

I have one (blog) myself although I don't post much!

You sound like my kind of friend! I love doing crazy things too and want to sky dive one day soon! Nice meeting you.

Quixotically Chaotic said...

Hi there! Just stopping by on the UBP! I love your blog!

I can't think of anything crazy about me that isn't known. LOL

I guess something unusual is that I have a tattoo on my left foot of a Cerebal Palsy awareness ribbon. It's on my left foot because my daughter has Left Side Hemiparesis. Not crazy, just different. :-)

Ally said...

Nice to "meet" you. Happy UBP!

I'm here looking for the prize choices but I don't see any.
