Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

I'm joining in the fun. I love to host a party, but being a guest will work just fine for me too!

A little about me...
I'm a mom of two wonderful children. I love to see them learn new things, but feel a little sad that they are growing up so fast.

I'm married to a wonderful man. We are about to celebrate our 10th anniversary.

We live in a comfortable, lived-in looking house and have a rather large cat, who is 11 years old. My two year old loves to follow him around, he looks for any opportunity to escape from playing with her.

I work full-time at a job I really enjoy with a great group of people. It still is hard to leave my children everyday, but I know that they are happy in school and daycare, so that makes it not so hard.

I love to cook and bake. I think I would enjoy going to culinary school. Imagine a career like that. In my MBA program, my business plan that I wrote was for a personal chef that would offer two services delivery of meals for the week or come in one day a week to prepare a personal meal.

I enjoy finding a good bargain. Having this blog has allowed me to share my finds with others. Plus, I've learned a lot from reading other blogs. I never knew the deals at CVS were out there. I had been missing out for a long time.

I love a good book. If I had a few hours to myself, I would be torn between taking a nap and reading a book. I like medical thrillers (Michael Palmer) and sappy love stories (Danielle Steel). I have read some interesting books for book clubs, but mostly, as a mom, I look for a quick read. If the storyline doesn't draw me in in the first couple of chapters, I'm not likely to finish it.

Learn more about other bloggers attending the Ultimate Blog Party, by heading over to our gracious hosts - 5 Minutes for Mom.

Oh yeah, the prizes that I most would want to win are one of the $50 Target giftcards, the Omron HJ-112 Digital Premium Pedometer, or the Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer.

Hi! So nice to meet you! I am visiting all the party goer sites and following when I can. I am participating too. Party on from the old hippie grandma who is restoring an 1880 Victorian Stone Farmhouse in Colorado. It's taking forever, hehe.

It's nice to meet another mom of 2--just like me! You are sure busy! I really like to cook, but I really enjoy baking--I love watching those wedding cake decorating shows, I think that would be so much fun!

I just stopped by, blog hopping as part of UBP 2009. It is very nice to meet you. I have a blog at; It's a toddler learning blog. I'd love to have you for a visit! I am loving UBP! Have a magical day. I have a goal of trying to visit 150 blogs per day, whew! Let's hope the little one takes long naps for the next few days.

Found you through UBP. As I was reading your post, I was thinking, "wow, very similar to me". I have two children, my husband and I will be married 10 years in April. Then I got to your love for cooking and the similarities ended there :) I don't hate cooking, just really bad at it.

I enjoyed the visit.
