Come Celebrate The Ultimate Blog Party!

Yikes, I can't believe it's already April 9. I'm a little late to the party, but a party doesn't always start exactly on time, does it? I'm chalking it up to being at home right now, which means that I sometimes have to really stop and think about the days of the week and the date. Regardless....

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Come celebrate with me, too!

For those of you who don't know me, welcome!

My name is Michelle, and I have two wee ones, Mister Man who is six and a half (as of Sunday, yikes!) and Little Miss who is four and a half. We can't forget the halves around here - they're critical. In fact, we actually celebrate half birthdays.  On Sunday, we'll be celebrating yet again.  Mister Man has requested my French toast (which of course I actually don't like but make for them anyway) along with strawberry cupcakes and cherry icing for dinner.  I'll be putting on my creative cap for this one!

The wee ones keep me pretty entertained, and I write about them frequently.  They say funny things, they break my heart, they make me proud, and they try to drive me crazy.  I think most parents can relate to most of those emotions - especially the last one!

I work part time, although I am currently on leave and testing out the waters of the SAHM world.  It's amazing how quickly the days fill up, as I'm nowhere near as caught up on life as I expected to be six weeks in.  Then again, I'm also the PTO president at Little Miss's school, which keeps me plenty busy.  I am achieving one of my goals for my leave, however.  I'm working on learning to say no - in fact, I told Mister Man's school that I was not able to chair their gala next year.  And I declined to be the head coach of the wee ones' softball team.  We won't discuss what I have gotten myself roped into though, will we?

I also love to cook, and I'm in the process of teaching the wee ones, too.  Little Miss is learning to crack an egg, although she insists on washing her hands after each cracking.  Mister Man does a pretty good job of measuring the dry ingredients, and I figure I'll be passing on the cooking dinner baton sometime in the next four or five years.  Each week, I put up one of the recipes I cooked over the past week with my Tasty Tuesday posts.

The blog here is all about My Life.  My Story.  My Version.  Come join me, and follow along with the fun!  And let's all celebrate the party with 5 Minutes For Mom.  It's not too late to join the Ultimate Blog Party, as I've proven here.

Did I mention there are prizes, too?  My favorites are the $200 Apple Gift Certificate from cMomGo (which is a website that I started using for my PTO this year and love love LOVE - don't know what I'd do without it!), $100 GC to, the foot and calf massager, the Get Fit pack, a custom made tutu for Little Miss (there are 2!), the Collected Recipes Cookbook binder, the Disney Mickey 5-in-1 Tasty Baker, the Wall Slicks decal GC, the $55 Amazon Gift Card (ok ALL the Amazon and Target gift cards!), the Flat Belly pack, the Cook It Together cookbook, and the Tupperware pack.  That's a lot of favorites, isn't it?

I can't believe how many prizes there are.  To be honest, there aren't ANY that I wouldn't want (the few young baby items excepted).  So come join the party!

And I almost forgot - with all the prizes mentioned above, I have a few giveaways with some neat prizes going on myself: Hot Locks doll here, probiotics here, and e.l.f. cosmetics here. Enter one or all, and good luck!

Sounds like you are one busy mama! It is amazing how the days and times fill up when you are a SAHM. I often wonder where it all went, but you just get busier and busier all the time. It's great though and I wouldn't change it for the world. Enjoy!

I hope this week is fun for you, partying with the other bloggers and making new friends! Stop by and say hi when you get the chance!

Sherry @ Lamp Unto My Feet April 10, 2010 at 5:35 AM  

Yeah! Glad to see you are partying, toO! :D I love coming by to see what you are up to. My husband has told me that I was busier as SAHM than a WAHM. Weird how that works! LOL! :D
