It's that time of the year again, it's the Ultimate Blog Party, hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom.
I'm joining in the fun. Normally, 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. My son is in the 2nd Grade and my daughter is 4 going on 24.
I'm married to a wonderful man. We are about to celebrate our 12th anniversary. It's a little crazy to think that we have been married that long. I look back at our pictures and we were so young!
We live in a comfortable, lived-in looking house and have a rather large cat, who is 13 years old. He started out as a cuddly little kitten, and then became a bit anti-social. Now, he likes to believe he is still anti-social, but frequently is found curled up on our bed in the morning.
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. You can check out my Menu Plans and my Recipes.
I enjoy finding a good deal. 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. You can check out the books that I have read recently here.
I enjoy trying new things. I have tried many new things on my own, but also I have stumbled upon of new and interesting items through my blogging.
