Welcome all party-goers!!

Hello all you Ultimate Blog Party-Goers!!! I realize my site is probably #887 of the blogs you've visited today, but I'm so glad you decided to stop by!

Come on in, take your shoes off, stay a while.

Feel free to look around. I've got two solid years of fun parked here.

My friends (real-life and e-friends) and family all have blogs too. I am sure they'd love a few extra new visits this week as well.

Leave a comment! I'd love to know you visited and I'll be glad to come over to your place too!!

Oh, please excuse me...I think I forgot to introduce myself...

This is me. Yes, I'm seeing someone about that growth on my face.

This is my wonderful husband. (old picture, but it's one of my favorites) I know, he's pretty cute. And he's smart, caring, a terrific father and funny too!!
Here's the love of our lives. She makes us so proud.
No, but really y'all....isn't she just edible?Before you leave, here are ten random tidbits about me. These will either tempt you into staying and bookmarking me, or send you running. Quickly.

1. I am a self-diagnosed insomniac with OCD.
2. I know all the words to the Doodlebops theme song. (okay, and pretty much all the dance moves too)
3. I have a nearly unhealthy obsession with American Idol.
4. I own over 130 pairs of shoes. I only wear about five pairs of them regularly.
5. I am right-handed, but shoot pool left-handed.
6. Even after having a baby, I still don't really enjoy "alone time."
7. I've wanted my nose pierced forever, but will never do it.
8. For years, I swore off mini-vans. I'm now a proud owner of one *gasp!* (this doesn't mean I've stopped making fun of them!
9. I'm allergic to roaches. (still not sure why they test for that)
10. Eating bananas make my ears itch.

Thanks for stopping by! See y'all at the after party!

Hey, thanks for visiting my party! :) After reading your 10 random tidbits ... I'm not really running very quickly. So that means I'm bookmarking you!

Just an FYI, the pictures that I'm assuming are supposed to be included in this post ... aren't.

Is it because you really didn't want us to see that growth on your face? That you don't think your hubby is all that cute?

I'm just kidding. I just wanted to let you know.

Have a great Friday!

Feagans Family said...

Hey GOof BaLl!! Very cute post....I should think about doing something like that!! I would love to see the grwoth on your face but as posted above....they didn't show!

Have a great day!!!

Uma and Wil said...

So if I want to set off your allergic reaction, all I have to do is to sprinkle some cockroach bits on your banana? Too easy during the elimination round of American Idol.

Sarah G. said...

Very fun party!! The pictures were very good!! I'm not sure if you fixed the problem or if I'm just the lucky one that can see them.

BTW...I LOVE the new blog!!!

jno04 said...

I thought we were supposed to get our noses pierced together? Well not together... but at the same time :)

Also I'm allergic to roaches too, lol.

KDoug said...

LOVE IT!

Michie said...

Hi, just wanted to let you know you were actually the 1st blog party I've stopped at - the name of your blog amused me. I haven't even gotten around to doing my party post yet, so you are well ahead of me. Nice to "meet" you.

swile67 said...

Greetings from snowy , cold Canada! I am snowed in so it's a great night for a party! Like Michie in the above post, you are the first party blog I have been to and like her, your name caught my attention! I LOVE your sense of humour and look forward to reading more of your posts. btw I love the polka dots too!! Party on!!

130 shoes. Wow we need to go shopping together.

Hope to see you at my blog party. I have a book review blog.

Valarie said...

Wow Bananas, never heard that before. Very interesting

I am with you on the shoes though. If we weren't about to get some snow, and I will believe that when I actually see some, I really need to go to Target and get some more shoe organizers.

Elizabeth...mommy...etc said...

CUTE list of 10...i wish i had 130 pairs of shoes...and a closet that would fit them! *elizabeth

Toni said...

Great party. I couldn't see the pictures but scrolled around enough to see that you have a beautiful family. I laughed out loud at the pic of your daughter with her top over her head!!! This seems like a great blog and I will be adding you do my links. If you aren't too tired from all the partying stop by my party...

I too love American Idol-
I have wanted my nose pierced but will never do it-
And I frequently use the phrase: Oh he/she is so cute I could just eat them up, or just lick em...

Happy partying

Don't know about that roach and banana issue but I'm right with you on 5 and 8 (I still twitch when I unlock my van).

Couldn't see the pics so I'll have to bookmark you and come back....

forgetfulone said...

Hi! I enjoyed your party post. You've got a great sense of humor. Why DO they test for roach allergies? LOL I'm a rightie, but I cut my steak and do cartwheels (used to, anyway) left-handed. Have fun partying!

Brittany said...

Hello! Just stopping by for the party. 130 shoes is amazing. and I LOVE making fun of mini-vans. I've yet to take the plunge, but I am sure we'll need to own one someday. :)

Tracye said...

Love your blog! Polka dots get me every time.

Couple of things:

1. I also live in Texas... actually taught Texas History (bleh!) for two years.

2. I don't know all the words to the Doodlebops, but I do know the ones to My Friends Tigger and Pooh, Higglytown Heroes, and Little Einsteins (could they have made the children on those shows any more moronic???)

3. You are my hero. Truly. I'm only up to 40. I have faith I'll get there someday.

4. I, too, am allergic to roaches.

5. And bananas.

Happy partying… stop by and say “Hi!” if you get a minute.

Oh, and I tried to get my baby boy to stop sucking his thumb by pulling the long sleeves of his pj's over his hands. Next morning, he looked like your daughter, and had his thumb happily in his smirking mouth.

Erin said...

Your blog is so cute. I'll most definitely be back! : )

Michelle Herlihy said...

You always find a way to make me laugh, out loud! Pictures are finally viewable, LOVE the nose picker pic - such concentration!

Kate said...

Mighty Morphin' Mama said...

Love your new blog look! Awesome and I love this getting to know you post, just terrific.
I too know the doodlebops. Oh how I know them...
and I did get my nose pierced with my best friend Shay about 7 years ago. I let it grow over when my third son pulled it out a couple years back. I don't miss it. But I do hate the empty hole in my nose. ick.

Tari said...

You are so much fun, I must admitt your one of the first blogs I made it past the intro before I flew on by. Cute layout and I love the way you write. I hope you'll stop on by. Booya

MandyPoo said...

Okay, I AM gullible. I'll let you know that upfront...are you really allergic to roaches?? lol. I think that's a stupid question...

Anyway, I also have an obsession with American Idol. In fact, I'm watching it as I blog!

I enjoyed your party...hopefully you'll come to mine, too! http://mrs-mandypoo.blogspot.com
