PARTY!!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2008
(This is a sticky post, new posts will be posted below)
I cannot believe it is time for the Ultimate Blog Party again. Whoo-Hoo!
I joined the Party late last year, so this year I wanted to make sure I arrived early.
Put on your party hats- it's going to be a fun-filled week!

So, a bit about me....
Let's start with the more obvious- I'm a 29 year old wife, daughter, sister, friend and soon to be mommy. (We are expecting our first daughter around June 2). I live in St. Louis, MO. I'm a girl (yes, I still think of myself as a girl- is that strange?) who loves to read, cook, watch movies, buy shoes, and sing loudly in her car. I love God and am striving to grow closer to Him every day.

Hope you'll leave a comment so I can visit your blog and learn a little about you too! Can't wait to meet new bloggin' friends!

Happy Ultimate Blog Party!

Happy Ultimate Blogging Party! Oh, a first child, how exciting!

How'd you like the big snow we just had? Or did your part of St. Louis avoid it? We got 12" here.

I sing loudly in the car.... my kids tell me to shut up. Did I mention I am tone deaf? It's not pretty.

Happy partying. I am going to go poke around you blog a bit.

Greta said...

Congrats on the little girl! I'll definitely be back to visit your blog - I think we have a lot in common. On that note, I wish I had written down all the stupid and insensitive things people said when I was pregnant. Just wait until you start getting advice (mean advice) from random strangers after she is born! People know no limits.

Brightonwoman said...

I just tried to leave a comment, don't know if it worked, so I'll try again...
You asekd about breastfeeding--I have written several things about that, if you check the tags on my blog, I did one recently with lots of links and resources.
I'd love to chat about it more if you've got more questions! I'll probably post about it more in the near future...I often do. :-)

storyteller said...

I found you at 5 Minutes for Mom and thought I'd drop by to say hello. I'm 63 and still think of myself as a girl ... so what the hey? LOL

I'd love you to drop by for some freshly squeezed lemonade, snacks, and conversation. The address for my party is:

because I don't know how to create a 'sticky' post yet.
Hugs and blessings,

jen said...
