Wow, after several years ive decided to try and resurrect this little blog of mine. I recently told a friend I missed having a place to write. Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

Blog Hop Party 2010 - Welcome!


D-Listed blogs is hosting a blog party! This is just a nice little way for other mommy blogs to mingle and get to know each other.  Find someone they have something in common with, find someone new, find an old friend.  The first step is to write up a little welcome and hello.  So stick around, join it at the link above, and get to know me better!

First off you should grab a big fresh cup of coffee.  With Hazelnut creamer if you want to be cool like me!  I started blogging mostly for myself.  I'd see a few other mom blogs and decided that since I was newly laid off and newly knocked up I should write about it.  Almost a year later here I am with almost 100 readers!  I can't believe it.  I feel soo very lucky that that many people care about what I have to say.  It's wonderful to me that some of them have even been around from my start when Aiden was just a little kicking frog in my belly. 

Allow me to back up more and point to you a few important posts of my life.  You can start out right up top where my ABOUT ME is located.  Check that out to hear about the hubs and how we met and fell in love.  It was a whirlwind really.  The short version is we met, it started with a smile.  We said I love you after 2 weeks and were engaged after 2 months.  We were married on our 9 month anniversary.  We were married 3 months when we found out Aiden was on his way.  You can read more about what my marriage means to me right HERE.  Aiden was born just weeks before our first wedding anniversary. 

You can read about his arrival HERE.  He has been our pride and joy.  He is already 7 months old and you can see a few posts back that he is already pulling himself up to stand and cruise on things!  We are going to have an early walker on our hands!  What a bright child he is, plus is he super cute.  We made one beautiful boy if I do say so myself!

A huge part of who I am these days is Postpartum Depression.  I struggled quietly for a couple months before I finally realized what I felt wasn't just normal stress.  I wrote a very difficult and honest post about my personal story HERE.  Please read it and don't hesitate to ask questions or get help.  I feel like a better mom by asking for help and taking care of myself.  I'm still healing, but everyday is a little easier or makes me a bit stronger.

In conclusion if you stick around my blog you will find I post way to many pictures of my growing son.  I mostly do this for myself, so I apologize if it gets old to you.  I ramble a lot.  I drink coffee more than I should.  I struggle with my weight {check out my weight loss blog - link in my sidebar to the right!} and one day I will write my story of the eating disorders I have overcome.  I love my family, even my in-laws, I love Coach purses and I feel blessed for all I have.  I'm often witty and talk about reality tv, and you will find me sometimes sharing a bit too much information.  I hope to see you all stick around, I love comments and love to share with my readers.  I hope to get to know you all better! 

{if you don't have auto reply on your comments please leave an email addy - I love to respond to each one!}

OK, first off, D-List Party Girl, take that "just" out of your description under your photo in the upper right corner. You are PROUDLY your little boy's mom, you are his world. :-) You've been through lots of stuff and have two amazing men who love you to death. You're not "just" anything. I am so impressed with how you've turned the lemons life has thrown at you into lemonade. You're a wonderful, strong lady!

On a side note, hello from (formerly) across the street. I'm still hanging on to my job at QX. My hubby is at our "sister." We're a nervous family with all our eggs in the AAG basket.

Following you now on Twitter and looking forward to getting to know you better chicky-poo.

Stopping by from d-listed and added your blog to my reader. Your son is a cutie, and I like what I've read so far. I love it when people are open and honest on posts, instead of trying to seem like their perfect, makes me not feel so bad that I struggle, too.

I hopped in from the D-list and I think we might be almost the same person. Also, I am your 100th follower, so that makes me super awesome! Your son is adorable. Seriously. And I also battle with PPD. I'm actually having a rally to raise awareness this week!

So now, I'm off to follow you on twitter!

Stopping by from the party. And I COMPLETELY relate to the post partum thing...enough so that my 1st child is my last child. Can't go through that again!

Here's to positive thoughts and forward motion! Happy blogging

Another blog party hopper here! I love the name of your blog! I tend to say what is on my mind too...and of course sometimes I end up getting in trouble for it. :-)

I also post way too many pictures of my kids, but I can't help it. I'm sure you can't either since your son is adorable!
