Welcome to my little corner of the web, Amy's blah, blah, blogging. As you have probably gathered by now, my name is Amy. My husband, Michael, and I thought we would welcome you with some fun party hats. I'd put on some Cyndi Lauper and Abba, however, I can't remember how! Very typical me let me tell you! There should also be a big bowl of orange sherbet, pineapple juice and ginger ale punch...I just need to figure out what I did with that punch bowl. Urgh...someone needs to clean house a little...oops!
Forgive me, I did just have my 2nd child in December and have since seemed to have lost my mind...along with the punch bowl, of course, since! Fortunately for me, I haven't lost either of the children, that is, yet. My 3 year old has tried to get lost several times, thankfully a wonderful, what I'm sure must have been a mom, invented a backpack monkey that you too can pick up at Target. less it. Yep, I'm one of those cruel moms with a kid on a leash...and, I still have that wild monkey of a three year old as a result! Woo hoo! I'm doing pretty good!
We are starting our party a bit late this year because we just got back from a trip to San Francisco. Such fun to get away from the midwest for a few days. Not any warmer there to be sure, but they do have some of the greatest food there. So many choices, so little time!
The last two years I've had so much fun at the UBP and I've been so fortunate to win prizes both times. I really hope this year does not break that cycle. I just love winning things, who doesn't right? And there are so many great things to win this year, like an artisian stand mixer, a $50 giftcard to Target, a $50 gift card to Born to Impress, another $50 giftcard to Target, and yet another $50 giftcard to Target, (can you guess what I REALLY want?), $50 gift card to Hatley, A Hotslings Sling and Nursing Cover Combo, a $25 giftcard to Target, and so many other things. You know I'd love a gift card that I could use, but being that I have an infant and a 3 year old, really anything for that age group would work too!
I've recently joined the ranks of babywearing moms. In fact, we didn't even take a stroller to San Fran. One of us wore our little girl the whole trip! And boy, did she get spoiled! She adored every minute of it! We have also just started our first compost pile. Soon we are going to plant our vegetable garden and I can't wait! Nothing like fresh vegetables picked from the garden.
I have, admittedly, been a real slacker in the blogging world since I had my little Anna in December. Two really does make a big difference in time consumption. I do try to hop on Tuesday or Wednesday to do a list of ten things that have brought us smiles in the past week, we call it Ten Smile Tuesday. It is great for reminding me of my blessings, as sometimes they can get lost in the laundry or dishes! Hopefully as we get a better routine going in the next few months I'll better be able to blog as I once did.
Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting with us, leave me a comment so I can stop by and say hi to you too! Oh, and one last little smile from my peanut...
