Welcome to my blog! And what a way to share my new blog with you than to be a part of the Ultimate Blog Party! I will have to tell you that I am a novice blogger, I'm brand new at this! So about my blog. This will basically be a journal for me - a way to express my feelings, because I am the champ at holding them in. From my experiences I have to share or I turn into a not very nice person! I'll probably talk about being a new mommy, my lack of motivation for being domestic and how I dream to be domestic, the goodies I find on ETSY, photography blogs, and just what is going on in my life. So what is going on in my life at the moment? March Madness! I love this time of year, even though my UK Wildcats did not make it into the tourney for the first time in a REALLY long time! More about me and the inspiration for my blog later, just wanted to get something on here! Let's get this Party started! And this party has prizes!!

If I were to win (fingers and toes crossed!) I would have to choose (couldn't choose just one!):

Top 3:
#USC 11 - see kai run shoes for my little man. My child (12 months) has never worn a pair of shoes. Guess we better get some before he starts walking, which he is close!
#88 - Hubby and I need a night out! Thank you The Divine Miss Mommy for donating a gift card to Carrabba's - YUMMY!
#76 - My little man starts his Mother's Day Out program in the Fall and he will need a lunchbox. I just fell in love with the lunchboxes at Lollipop Papers.

So I know I can't always get what I want, so I would be happy with these others
#3 - Our family loves soccer.
#38 - I need a cute belt for this summer.
#50 - I'm hosting a baby shower soon.
#118 - Who wouldn't love to go shopping at Old Navy.
#123 - Kohl's is a favorite.
#USC40 - LOVE Yankee Candle
#USC58 - Maybe this will help with my dream of being domestic.
Or any Target gift card, which will come in handy for diapers!

So there we have it folks. Again welcome to my blog and I hope you are enjoying the Ultimate Blog Party. Hope you will visit again sometime soon.

Maybe the reason we get along so well is because we both struggle with being domestic--in some way or another! I am still thinking we should do once a month cooking.

So glad you started a blog! Definitely bookmarking!

Hi, you stopped by and asked about digital scrap booking. I like to call it scrap booking without the mess :-) You buy digitally created papers, embellishments and alphabets and crop, tweak, place and layer all on your computer. It's so easy to get the right photo size this way and I can use all my papers and stuff over and over. Kind of like what you have already done with your blog page. You can then just print them out and put them in an album or keep them only on your computer. I love it because I can sit down and work at it for 3 min and just turn the monitor off if I am needed, no mess for the girls to get into.

Welcome to the amazing world of blogging AND the even more amazing world of MOMMYHOOD!

For me blogging was a great way to get connected while battling the newness of being at home with a little one.

Thanks for visiting my blog earlier.
