It's A Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Hello and welcome to my blog. I am so glad you’ve decided to stop by.

(For my non-blogging friends who are wondering what I am talking about- 5 Minutes for Mom is hosting the “Ultimate Blog Party” where all of us bloggers write a little post about ourselves and then sign Mr. Linky over at 5 Minutes for Mom inviting the other bloggers to stop by.)

I am a stay at home mom to 17 month old Hailey, step-mom to almost 16 year old Brooke and married to the love of my life, Rich.

I started blogging a little over a year ago- and what I thought would be a once or twice a month hobby, has turned into so much more. I now have two blogs which I update several times a day. Obviously I have found out how very addicting blogging is (be sure to check out my Blogaholics Anonymous Blogroll that I have on my other blog and let me know if you'd like to join).

I use this blog mostly for the different daily memes. I play along with Fun Monday, Menu Monday, Tackle It Tuesday, Wordless Wednesday, Thursday Thirteen, Friday's Feast and Photo Hunt Saturday.

If you have a chance- stop by my other blog Livin' With Me.

Carol Van Rooy said...

I beleive I've already hit your other blog. Wow, I'm off to hit some more parties.

Have a great party!!!

Heather said...

Happens to the best of us, Melanie. ;) One day you accidentally sign up for Blogger because you are wanting to comment on some lady at work's son's blog... and the next thing you know, three years later you are attached to your monitor, wearing 2 sizes bigger jeans because your butt is flat and square (like the fold out chair in front of your desk). The kids call you "computer mommy" and your husband often asks you when you are coming to bed ... to which your reply is ALWAYS, "right after I finish this post".

See? I just told the story of your life, didn't I? Didn't I?

OK, I think maybe I need to join that blogroll, too. Ya think?
