Monday Link Ups and Weekend Review


Sumo Sweet Stuff

I can actually say that I had a decent weekend. I haven't been able to say that for awhile.
Friday after work, I went to my hometown for a cousin's bridal shower. There are just a couple of cousins that still live around here, so it was mostly my Aunts and Great Aunts. But, my Aunts and Mom know how to party so it was a ton of fun. It was a dessert and wine party. Oh! I can't forget about the cheese
It was at my Mom's house so she made all the desserts. She made a couple of trifels, a key lime dessert and some cute little cherry/blueberry tarts. Then there was the wine. Oh the wine! I bet I had four glasses before it was over.
I sat next to my cousin, the sister of the bride. We graduated the same year from HS so she mentioned that some people were going out. I happily accepted her ivitation. I swore that I would only have a couple and then call it a night. Why do I even say that? LOL. We got downtown and the good times kept rolling. I was out until 1:30. It's been a much needed girls night out.
Saturday, I drug myself out of bed and brought my son to my sister's house. I was babysitting that night, so we went up early so the kids could go swimming and the sprinkler. Jack had a blast. We have a pool here, but my sister has a kiddie pool so he was free to come in and out. I think he really enjoyed himself.
We went home this morning and didn't really do much. I checked my emails and etc. After a quick lunch, we layed down to watch Caillou. I told myself that I was just going to lay down until he fell asleep. I wasn't about to break my No Nap on Sunday rule. Well.....I broke up. Before I knew it, we had slept for almost 5 hours. Oops.
Now, I have to figure out how I'm going to go to bed because tomorrow starts a new work week. My alarm will go off at 5:15 sharp!
Wish me luck!

It's a Blog Bash at Not Your Average Teen!!!

Blog Bash

Here is my introduction post for the Blog Bash
1.) Why do you blog?
I blog mostly to as a tiny creative outlet. I'm not incredibly creative. I scrapbook a lot, that is about it. I had been reading blogs for awhile and thought I would give it a shot. Who knows if I'll ever compare to the awesome blogs that are out there. But, I do feel "lighter" after I do a post.

2.) What do you blog about?
I blog mostly about my 2 1/2 year old son and just being a Mom in general. I also post any new recipes I try. I also let out some random frustrations. :)

3.) What do you find to be the biggest reward you get from blogging?
So far my biggest reward is seeing that I'm actually keeping up with it. When I started, I thought I'd do it for a couple of weeks and then quit. I also really enjoy having what I call the "Super Mommy Bloggers" commenting on my posts or twitter updates.

4.) How long have you been blogging?
I've only been blogging since late March. Not terribly long but I'm at a point where I'm catching on to how this world operates.

5.) Let's hear the story behind your blog title! :)
I titled my blog behind the idea that I'm a first time Mom. My son is a toddler now and the toddler world is so new to me. I also thought I would post any new things that I try.
