Welcome to the Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Welcome to the Ultimate Blog Party 2009 hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom!

This is one of my favorite times of year.  Two years ago I attended the first UBP as a brand new blogger.  (I find it funny how in the real world if I got invited to a party where I didn’t know anyone I would decline and take the phone off the hook.  But there was something about this virtual party that just sucked me in. Who can resist a party where you can wear sweatpants and don’t have to clean behind the sofa?) I ventured out and discovered a few new friends.  In 2008, I swung through a few parties and was happy to meet a few more friends.  (Okay, the truth is that last year I “met” 58 new blogs but finally narrowed it down to a more manageable 20 that became permanent fixtures on my blogroll.)  I even won a rockin’ prize!

So welcome to the party!  AND, welcome to my new digs.  I’m still decorating and this is my very first post over at wordpress. 

Why did I change to Too Stupid to Say No Club?  Because I am a card carrying member of the club.  You may be familiar with our members.  Perhaps you are one yourself.  Have you ever said yes to planning a Baby Shower with 50 guests that happens to be a week after your twins celebrate their 2nd birthday and just two weeks after Christmas?  Have you ever agreed to serve as campaign manager for a local political candidate when you have zero experience?  Or, maybe you were the type to agree to help plan a National Convention the same year that your now 3 year old twins decided to stop napping.  If so, then you may qualify for membership. 

So that’s me.  I’m an eight months to thirty, Stay-at-home Mom of identical twin girls who just turned 3 in December.  DH and I will celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary in July.  I’m also a convention planner, multiples club board member, campaign manager, Flybaby, and library junkie.  I typically post everything from the silly stuff my kids are doing, the crazy stuff I like to rant about, and my own efforts at Flying. 

So post a comment and let me know to visit your party!

    Wow I am not sure how I am doing it but apparently I was meant to meet more moms of multiples through the UBP – because seems every other blog I click on is a mother of twins! I am doing my best at raising my boy/girl twins! Thanks for joining the party and live it up! And oh how I should be a member of your club 🙂

    Twin blogs are everywhere at the UBP this year! I don’t have twins, but my daughter seems to be a twin magnet. At her fifth birthday party a couple of weeks ago, we invited just 10 children – with six of them being three sets of twins. Nice to meet you!

    Thanks for hosting a party! I’m a MOM too. I have boy girl twins who will be 6 next Sunday. I also have trouble saying no and have served as Campaign Manager on numerous campaigns. It sounds like we have a lot in common. I will have to be back to get to know you better.

  29. March 23, 2009 1:52 am

    This is my first year at the UBP. I’m glad I jumped to your place. I thought my 3 kids were a handful 🙂 I look forward to dropping back again. Enjoy the party.

    Stopping by from the party. This one is my first! I just created my blog in October of last year. Good luck!

    Hi there. I’m anxious to see how you decorate. I tried the WordPress thing for about a week and was like “huh?”. And can I call myself a Flybaby if I get the emails? I mean, get the emails and all.

    I’ll be back to see what you’ve done to the place. Come by and visit my place if you have time and check out my Etsy store. I have some really fantastic flashcards that would be wonderful for your little one. If you are interested, email me and mention UBP and I’ll give you a 15% discount.

    I also have identical twin girls (they’ll be 4 in May!) I’ll definitely have to check out your blog more later… (I’m just bookmarking everyone right now, while I blog-hop my way through the party :-p)

    Feel free to check out my blog, too! While I found the party too late to be part of the official prize giveaways, I do have a door prize at my blog: I’m giving away a free print copy of my book, “Two Snowflakes.” (It’s inspired by my twin girls.) Here’s my address:

    It was nice to meet you!
