Welcome To My Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

The Ultimate Blog Party 2010 has just begun over at 5 Minutes For Mom!  Its my first UBP so I am really excited to meet as many of you as I possibly can without completely ignoring my children.

Can it be done? I think so! Thankfully our new swing set was just installed so I am sure they won’t even notice that I am on the computer {wink wink}.

So welcome to Life Without Pink.

What exactly is my blog about? Well you can read the About page but if you are pressed for time {funny thing to ask to a mom} then I will share a few things about me.

  • I am SAHM to two very active, crazy wild but incredibly adorable boys; Big A is 4 years old this month and Little B is 18 months. I have been married for almost 7 years and my hubby and I have been together for a total of 14 years – I can’t believe he isn’t sick of me yet!
  • I became a SAHM after my second son was born due to a lay off.  It has been great and I am so thankful that I am able to be home with them every day but I have to admit I do go a little crazy at times and crave adult interaction.  That is why I turned to blogging. It has become a real outlet for me and I have meet some really wonderful friends through blogging.
  • I talk really fast. My husband often has to say to me “SLOW DOWN”. I ramble I know it but I just have so much on my mind!
  • Coffee is my life line. Don’t talk to me until I have had at least one cup in the morning.
  • I am a reality TV junkie! I know must of it is so fake but I can’t stop watching. ADDICTED!
  • Even though I have two boys I still like to be girly! You know put make-up on, do my hair, get dressed up, hang out with the girls or go on a date with my hubby; doesn’t happen that often but I still like to feel pretty once in awhile!

What do I write about?

I discuss the ups and downs of being a mom especially to two boys {did I mention they were crazy?} – a life I am still adjusting to.

Many ask; will you be trying for that girl? Probably not if my hubby has a say {which I guess he does lol}, but you NEVER know! For now I am happy with my two little monkeys and they keep me quite busy!

I will also share some blogging tips I have learned, host a few fabulous giveaways and discuss anything that gets me through the day!

Pull up a chair, grab a glass of wine or coffee {whichever you prefer} and get to know me a little better.  I’d like to direct you to a few of my favorite posts:

What Makes Me Sad?

      Thanks for stopping by! Yes two boys is a little crazy since they both are into running around all day, screaming, acting like super heroes, wrestling and all that fun stuff. Today my 18 month old handed me a baby turtle that he found. Me I screamed; such a girl. Can’t wait to stop by your blog and check out your own little party!

    I am so on board with the coffee lifeline and I have to wake up early just to get a whole cup in me before having to deal with kids!! I added you to my google follow and can’t wait to hear more from you! Have a great time with the party and stop by my little blog anytime!

    • says

      How come on the days I decide to get up early before everyone else to enjoy a cup of coffee {and drink it while its still hot} the kids decide that is the day they will get up early? Heading over to check out your blog now.

  7. says

    Hey there! Hopping over from UBP10 to poke around. Love how you listed favorite posts to visit! Got a kick out of your DH and son conversation. Hehehehe..

    Take care!

  8. says

    Nice to meet you! I too am living a life without pink. Although I long for a daughter, it’s just not in the cards.

    I love reality TV especially Big Brother and Survivor.

    Have a great weekend!

  9. says

    tee hee hee, I accidently posted this on your About page.

    I talk really fast, too. And with my hands. I’m almost mute if someone challenges me to try and talk without using my hands!

    Shhh, don’t tell anyone, but I’m kind of addicted to tv, too. Not as bad as I used to be, but oh, there are some shows that CAN NOT be missed.

    My oldest daughter would have to agree with you in the sense that she wouldn’t be able to do life without pink. For the longest time is was light blue EVERYTHING and then all of a sudden when she was like 17 she switched to all pink! Wish I were more girly girl!

    Stopping in from UBP ‘10 and Twitter.

    Hi there. I am visiting via UBP’10. I love what I see… I too am surrounded by testosterone (busymom of 3 boys: ages 4, 2 and 4 months)!!

    I bookmarked your page and look forward to returning soon!

    I have two boys too (2 1/2 and 11 mo.). I’m going to follow because I think we who are surrounded by testosterone must stick together. You know, moral support.

  12. says

    Nobody talks to me until I have at least 1 cup of coffee! And boys are crazy! I only have 1 who is 4, but he is in constant run and talk/scream mode. Sometimes it feels like there’s an arm of him!

    I’m hopping over from the party and now a follower. I would love to have you visit me!

  13. says

    God Bless YOU, girl! You’re in good company. I have 3 boys (9, 7, & 4), I’m also a SAHM, and Coffee is what runs through my veins. I also talk too fast, I’m too wordy, and probably more than a little overzealous in my likings (i.e. blogging, my new addiction). Come see me! It’s nuts over there, but hey, feel welcome :D

    Adding you to my blogroll. We’re too like minded to not.
