Party Post


OK, so since I've given up the idea of giving up blogging for Lent, I decided, why not join a party instead? So, there is this Ultimate Blogging Party going on. It basically gives exposure to your blog and helps you meet other bloggers. Yes, because that is certainly what I need in life. I know, I know. However, I need to feed my addiction, so humor me people!

Anyway, anyone can join the party and you may win special prizes. Oh yes, my favorite price FREE is featured in the word prize, so I just had to do it. Why don't you join too?

Well, part of being part of the party means you need to leave a party post. What's a party post you ask? Well, it introduces you to all that might stop by and let's them know why they should hang around and check out your blog. So, here goes...

So...what to expect...

My name is Amy. That's me over to your left. I'm the adult, sometimes. Rocking Happy I live in the bustling metropolis that is Indianapolis. Yes, home of the Superbowl Champions and the not so championship behavior of our pro athletes. But, that is a post for another day...I'm a recovering social worker and current Stay at Home Mom.

Anyway, I am married to Michael, for nearly 3 years and we have one beautiful daughter, not that I'm biased or anything, named Lilla. She's 1. She enjoys such things as watching the toilet flush, eating my mail and pulling the dogs feet even though she gets growled at. Who could tell me she's not going to be the next female Einstein?!?!


I blog about my little universe here in corn country, my always struggling faith and desires, and, I hate to say, but just the mundane. I try not to make it so though, there has to be a bit of humor in everything. Ugh, who wouldn't want it that way, right?


I love posting pics of my peanut, so you'll see many. I also just discovered smilies so that will be my new passion for the next 5 minutes until something better comes along. I'm a big music fan so I'm always changing it and explaining why. Hey, I said I TRY not to be mundane, ok?!?! I post recipes sometimes and I enjoy finding new memes to do. Right now I'm doing Thursday 13 and Friday Feast. Also, I have another blog, just for a bit more confusion. I can't decide which I like better so it's just a mirror, however, it contains tons more pictures and music and other fun stuff, over at spaces. The addy is www.dramy75.spaces.live.com

So, that's me in a nutshell, hope you enjoy your visit. Leave me a note and I'll visit you too!

I am amazed by the response to the party invitation! So many new folks are participating . . . it's just great!

The sticky timing thing doesn't work on Blogger. It resets by itself.

But you can get code for a real sticky over at www.flooble.com

The party is in full swing over at my place . . .c'mon over!

Making my penis bigger has actually taught me several things, regardless of the fact that it is actually ultimately possibly and permanent, he said. The first is that penis sizegenetics surgery has not been necessary. Surgery is costly, along with also very risky, even in cases while procedure goes smoothly without any complications. Besides that, surveys have shown numerous men that definitely have gone under the knife will never be pleased utilizing the results.I also learned that pumps don't work. Because i decided I wanted to start making my penis bigger, I bought a pump, and wasn't a cheap one either.
