My Party Post - Ultimate Blog Party 2010

To all my usual readers, this post is for something called The Ultimate Blog Party. It's a way for mommy bloggers to connect and network. To participate, I have to write a "Party Post" to introduce myself to other mommy bloggers who will see my blog through this networking opportunity. I also have to put a sticky link at the top of my blog so people can find my "Party Post" easily. So this is what this is all about!

Since this is my first year doing the Ultimate Blog Party, I'm not really sure what to write! But, I'll give it a shot. My husband Dan (D) and I have been married for 2.5 years. We are miscarriage survivors and have since been blessed with our son Lucas (L), who is 5 months old. He is the cutest baby in the world, so if you've been looking for him you can stop your search.

I work full-time but wish I could stay at home part-time. I am a new blogger but have fallen hard and am now obsessed! I try to put a humorous perspective on my posts because if I don't laugh at myself then I get really grumpy and no one likes a Mrs. Grumpy Pants. D thinks I tend to over-share on here, so if you don't like talk of boobs, stretch marks, etc. then you might want to keep moving. I am pretty sarcastic but am also really sensitive to how what I say might make other people feel, so I almost never say anything snarky about people I know (especially people I know who read this blog!).

I'm really excited to meet other mommy bloggers and find new blogs to fall in love with! Thanks for checking out my Party Post.

My husband cuts lawns on the side and loves it. I love this picture and call it "Learning the family business."

Hi, I am hopping over from UBP and so glad to meet you, I'm now following and hope you can stop by and see me and would love to have you as a follower. I too am a working mom, I work full time in accounting and run an online store/business part time. I have a 20 month old, your monkey is too cute for words. We too are miscarriage survivors, I think we have a lot in common. Hope to see you soon, and I'll for sure be back to visit.
