Welcome to the PAR-TAY!

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

I'm all about par-tays and this is one I won't have to clean up afterwards!! For those of you stopping by for the first time, I will give you ten random facts about me and then some links to other posts that define me. These are in no order of importance.

1. I am a PTO, soccer loving mother of 3 absolutely wonderful daughters whose various extracurricular activities leave me breathless running from one to the next.

2. I like watching and participating both on stage and behind the scenes in theater. I have given birth to 3 children who can say the same thing.

3. I am not shy. In fact, I talk too much. Again, my 3 daughters have inherited this trait from me.

4. I love Jesus Christ and make a very conscience effort to share His love with others. I love praying for people, especially catching them off guard like in Wal-mart and restaurants and watching their whole countenance change.

5. I met The Husband in Florida and we moved up north when my oldest daughter was a baby. I love where I live, but I miss the beach like crazy. Especially days like today that are cold and rainy.

6. A good sense of humor is essential in life. If I could not laugh about the predicaments I've gotten myself into, I would have surely lost my mind by now.

7. Coffee and fountain Diet Coke. If I were stranded on a desert island that is all I'd need (besides my family and a Bible).

8. I hardly watch TV, but I'm a big reader. I like Christian fiction, particularly historical or suspense. I get them from the library by the dozens for me and GAS (my grandmother who lives with us). Then I stay up way too late reading them.

9. I really enjoy being a mom, even on the days when it feels like the life has been sucked right out of me. I think it is the most important thing I can do to contribute to mankind. I firmly believe that a lot of the problems we blame on the government really boil down to the disintegration of families. I am going to pray and do whatever I can to help remedy that situation.

10. I really like coffee. And, fountain Diet Coke. I thought that was worth mentioning again and I'm running out of things to say.

Here are a few of my favorite posts.....The Dog,
prayer, a funny story about my youngest, and everyone loves a good vomit story.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi! Nice to meet you. I'm a mom of 3 also, but only one girl in the mix. I love Christian fiction. My mom used to buy EVERY new book that came out. I'd go to the book store and call her and ask, "Did you see the new,,,,," Her response, "Got it. Read it. It's waiting for you." Then she retired and I had start buying my own books. (gasp!) Stop by my party when you can!

Isn't it strange how fountain pop and can/bottle pop taste different? But it does. I enjoyed your site.

Allow me to say hello, I'm a very bad thespian . . nice people like my mother say "No your not!" to which I reply - I've tried and in a small town have been cast in the chorus one to often to fool myself.
Well, I'm gonna do sommore shmoozing, so Party ON!
