Ultimate Blog Party 2011

I don't do a lot in the way of blog parties, but this morning when I opened my blog feed I saw so many posts about this one.  Posts from bloggers I really admire and respect, so I knew it must be one great party.  I had to investigate more.  And I'm glad I did, because it really sounds like a fun time (they even have prizes), and so I decided to jump in on this.  Who couldn't use a good party now and then?
Ultimate Blog Party 2011

If you're visiting for the first time, welcome, I'm so glad you're here!  I tend to blog about being a mom (to 3 boys - a 4 year old and 19 month old twin boys), living the rural life, cooking, fun things to do with kids, and running.  I confess it's a hodgepodge, but I like it that way.  I am also trying to focus on writing creatively, so about once a week I write a post that is fiction.  I blog because it has been a great outlet for my creativity, and because I've met so many interesting people along the way.  Looking forward to checking out your blog as well - let me know if you decide to follow so I can follow you back.

Your boys are too cute. I think living in the Blue Ridge Mountains would be awesome!! (My husband however is not so much a wilderness dude so it looks like vacation visits only.)I am following and I can't wait to read your newest fiction piece! Thanks for stopping by my site too! Happy UBP11!

I don't even know how to participate in a blog party - - but then, I'm barely keeping up with my blogging buddies as is and should probably just sit this one out.

p.s. I'm glad you got your puzzle and your book is on its way too...

Happy weekend, Lisa!

Hello,

A Happy Saturday to you, Lisa! Glad you joined in the UBP this year.

Ahhhh, rural living... That is something that I'm looking forward to quite a bit once hubby retires from the Army. :-) And I think hodgepodge is a good thing. Always leaves you with something to write about. ;-)

Will be following along with you from here out and hope to get to know you better in the future.

Heather said...

Our twin boys are 17 now. :-) We snuck a girl in between the twins and our youngest son, but otherwise our children are spaced about the same as yours. -)

We live on a farm too... it's never dull, nor as clean as I would like, with a bunch of boys and a farm!

Heather said...

We also have twin boys, and live on a farm. :-) Three boys total, and a girl in the middle, for us... but ours are all teens now.

It's never dull, nor as clean as I would like, living with all these boys, on a farm. :-)

I was away most of this week and only arrived last night so I've missed your 'party'! However, I think I'll go visit some of your commentors here...x

Tiffany said...

Hi there!! Glad to find your blog through the Ultimate Blog Party. I read your About Me and I'm also a part time working mom. Your life sounds so fun! I would love to live in the country and ride horses.
You like writing? You should check out the red dress club. They have at least two prompts per week some fiction, some non. I love it because they encourage commenters to give pointers to your work.
Nice to meet you!
I'm following you now.
