Ultimate Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Seriously, my first attempt at posting something about myself for the the UBP11 was pretty lame so I went and read a few more blogs and realized I needed to spice things up!

Uhmmm, well it just doesn't get very spicy around hear. Plus the crying kids and slamming doors are kind of distracting.

I used to write about all the horrible things my kids did but then I felt bad about that so I decided to write about the things I like to do but that isn't as interesting as I had imagined. Now I'm trying to find a balance in my blog but that seems to be as difficult as finding balance in my life.

I have 2 kiddos (4 1/2 and 2 1/2) and a great hubby. I am a full-time domestic goddess and have the habit of jumping in head first to anything I find interesting.

I'm not terribly crafty but I do love to cook. My latest crazy plan is to bake every bread recipe in the "Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day". I'm only 2 recipes in but The Hubs is super happy with the plan. He is a breadaholic.

I also write about my garden. I started gardening a few years ago and just finished a class in sustainable gardening. I still find the process a little overwhelming so I'm not an expert by any means but I do like getting a little dirty.

I love photography but I'm not willing to invest the serious money it takes to turn it into anything more than a hobby. I have great family photos though!

I took up running to get rid of the baby weight but wouldn't you know it - I haven't lost a single pound. I have gained some muscle and tightened things up but still... I just ran my 3rd half-marathon and still weigh the same as when I started. Grrr!

Oh, and for some reason I have a husband who develops crazy obsessions! I started running so he became obsessed with running - last year he ran 1000 miles and this year he plans to run 6 half-marathons.. and he lost weight...Grrr again! He also watched a documentary about food and decided to become a vegetarian and watched another documentary about beer and started brewing his own beer (so now he is gaining weight - yippee!).

So that is me, I can't promise to be interesting all the time but I'll try!

Oh, and following the link to join the Ultimate Blog Party!


  1. Great intro! I think it's just the right amount of spice. I'm a new follower from UBP. It's nice to meet you! Hope you can stop by and say hi. :)

  2. Wheee! You're joining the par-tay! I already follow your blog but I didn't realize your hubby decided to be vegetarian. Does that make you a vegetarian too?


  3. I'm laughing that you feel the need to "spice" things up! Just being a mom makes life interesting, right?! Haha!

    Hope you "meet" lots of new people!



  4. Stopping by from the UBP11-nice to meet you! My husband can lose weight just by cutting down on Mountain Dew. I have to count calories and exercise for weeks to make anything happen-so frustrating!

  5. Too funny! You sound just like me....trying new things all the time. Maybe we might figure out what we want to be when we grow up sometime, eh?

  6. Hi there!
    I love the name of your blog. I can so relate :)
    I'm stopping by from the Ultimate Blog Party to say hello.
    Have a great day!



About Me

My photo
Right now I'm covered in flour, haven't showered since yesterday, and I'm sleep deprived. Once upon a time I was using my expensive college education to work as a accountant/consultant. Now I use my high school Home Ec. skills to raise 2 kids and keep my house from falling down.
