Ultimate Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

One of my favorite sites, 5 Minutes for Mom, is hosting a really cool blog party. Check out Mr. Linky for all the participants...

I hate to bore those of you who know me, but here goes:

About Me:
I am 32, have two girls, Ashley is 4 and Audrey is 2. I have been married for almost 10 years (gasp!). I work full time as an accountant (finanical analyst if I want to sound all fancy and stuff) in healthcare and I live near Raleigh, North Carolina and love meeting other bloggers from this area. I write for a Working Mom's Blog and a Review Blog. And next week, I will be writing on Wednesday's for a website devoted to Moms in the Triangle area.

I love Disney, coffee, and potato chips. Please stay away from me if you have an open bag.

What else? I play bassoon in my town's community band, I am addicted to Americal Idol and Lost, and have a really odd Tivo list that includes Ghost Hunters, Jon & Kate Plus 8, What Not to Wear. I also love to cook, but unfortunately my family does not share in my adventurous spirit in the kitchen. Unless it has chocolate in it.

I applied to be on the Amazing Race, but obviously did not make it.

I would share pictures of my kids partying, but at this point that would just be pictures of my kids dancing around my husband's laptop while listening to High School Musical. Yes, even my two year old. And yes, even me.

And since I love to cook, I would love to start a food blog (and because I don't have enough other stuff to do), so winning from my favorite blog designers, RS Design (#71 on the prize list) would be great. They did my design on my review blog. Or I would love to win a design by See My Designs (#67), Designs by Summer (#45), or Sweet N Simple Design ($24).

And because Ashley requested, I would love to win the computer software for her courtesy of Mom Reviews (#44). From there, any of the cool shirts many of the prizes have listed, from cute onesies to cool t-shirts.

I didn't know you applied to be on Amazing Race. A friend of mine did also - she and her husband didn't get a call either : (

Sabrina said...

I did not know you were applying to be on the amazing race. Barbara and I wanted to do that also. Evidently your story has to be REALLY compelling to be on there, so her husband suggested that we insinuate that we were trying to be life long partners and figuring out how to tell our husbands or something like that. Men.

I wanted to stick with Scrapbooking Mom's.

Guess I missed the deadline huh?

SJ said...

Ohhh, I think about applying to Survivor and The Amazing Race all the time. I think it would be a blast!

Welcome to the Party! Hope you win one of those prizes so that you can start that food blog!

I will be 32 this month! :) Is it as great as I hope???

I have been reading you for awhile but it was good to get some details... :)

Pam said...

Happy Blog Party! Even though I have been reading your blog for some time now- I liked having a recap about you. You know, in case I missed it or forgot! Enjoy the party!

I never applied to do Amazing Race, but I did apply for Extreme Home Make-over...but alas, no call. Poor me...
I really enjoyed the re-cap about you. Nice to learn some new things.
You are a BUSY blogger!
ps I will be coming to NC some time in the spring to visit my inlaws, I'll have to let you know when...

I thought about doing the blog party thing but can't keep up with the blogs I read as it is lately.

Kelly M said...

Can you share your love for cooking?...because I absosultely hate it. I have no interest in it whatsoever!

Elizabeth said...

Awww, I hope you get picked as the winner of the JumpStart game for your daughter! Have a great Blog Party :)

MaryBeth said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm new to the Blog Party thing, but so far enjoying it immensely. Your girls are beautiful!

MaryBeth said...

Sorry for the double comment thing, but I wanted to add that I love the triangle area. I went to UNC for Grad school in 98-99. Loved, loved that part of North Carolina!!

Hey... Thanks so much for stopping by. So you are in good ole NC. We are in Florida now, but plan on making the move back to NC this summer. I love the mountains and four seasons too much.

So glad to meet you!
