Cheers!!!

Welcome to my personal 2009 blog party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

I'd like to share a little bit about myself with all of you and hope to meet some interesting people along the way! Sit back, enjoy a nice hot cup of tea and let me know you've stopped by for a visit along your journey. Here are the top 10 facts about me:


1. First and foremost I am a Christian












2. Me and my other half, married 6.5 years











3. My Little Miss, 22 months old











4. Countdown to baby: currently 3 days!!!











5. My part-time job













6. Kansas girl, born and raised











7. My favorite hobby, though not enough time to ever do it










8. I wish I was better at tending to my home. I'm learning!!!














9. My dream vacation: Italy and the Mediterranean, land of my forefathers










10. My favorite blogs are all about frugal living, pinching pennies and the like










To meet other bloggers or to join the party visit the gals over at 5 Minutes for Mom.

Oh, and don't forget there are so many cool prizes to be won at this year’s Ultimate Blog Party, but my top three picks would be:

1. Ergo Baby Carrier by: A Giveaway Addicted Mommy
2. Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer by: Moms Who Think
3. $100 gift card to HomeGoods by: HG Openhouse

And if my top three picks are already chosen, I’d love any of the following (in order of preference): 41, 45, 19, 21, 22

Thanks for commenting on Nine Months or Less - congrats and good luck to you too!! :)

Maybe I should interview you - I see you're a L&D nurse...

Been there before (3 times), but not as natural of a route as I'm hoping to go this time - IF they work with me. Any tips for helpful nurses??
