Ultimate Blog Party 2011


Ultimate Blog Party 2011

If you are stopping by from 5 Minutes For Mom, hello and welcome to the party! I participated last year and had SO MUCH FUN meeting new people! Since I am a huge list maker I thought I’d share 10 things about myself as a little icebreaker and invite you to share something about yourselves in the comments below!

Random Fact #1: My least favorite household chore is putting clean laundry away.

Random Fact #2: I work from home and every day I don’t have to go anywhere I can be found in sweats. {Attractive, huh?}

Random Fact #3: I love doing jigsaw puzzles and Sudoku puzzles.

Random Fact #4: I own more books than I could read in a year but I refuse to get rid of them because “someday” I will have the chance to read them.

Random Fact #5: My favorite store is Target because of their dollar section, clearance prices, and fun patterns.

Random Fact #6: I went to college in Ohio and was the only student from Illinois on campus.

Random Fact #7: In high school I spent one summer on tour with a traveling Christian choir.

Random Fact #8: Organization makes me giddy with happiness.

Random Fact #9: Blogging started out as a hobby and has turned into a part-time job that I love. Working for Living My MoMent as the Social Media Manager is pretty awesome, too. Between the two of them I spend over 45 hours a week online!

Random Fact #10: I can’t wait until my children are old enough to be in sports so I can be a “soccer mom”. It’s been my dream since grade school.
