Blizzard Bloghop 2010!

Blizzard  Bloghop 2010 hosted by Household 6 Diva

Well, holy wow! I was on the phone with my mom for like an hour, came back and am starting my post for the Blizzard Bloghop, and looks like there are already 67, yes, you read that right, people, sixty-seven people linked up.

I'm so excited, and I hope that loads of you have come by to say hi and meet your fellow BB participant, meaning = me!

Anyway, if this is your first time here, welcome! Welcome! I've got dinner cooking in the crockpot and water is ready for tea. I hope you like chai, but if you don't, no worries. I've got about 100 different kinds on-hand. And yes, I'm totally serious.

Although the one thing I don't have in my house, which is probably a good thing, is sweet tea. Mind you, I am a fairly new Southern girl, but I'm a big sweet tea drinker, and if it were something I could make easily I'd probably be living off of it. And that sure as heck wouldn't help me fit into my skinny pants. Not that I'm always so sure that I want to ... conundrum, anyone?

I love to read, and I love a good meme, and I especially love when I can combine the two!

I enjoy cooking, baking and eating (go figure) and have recently started posting recipes regularly. Sometimes part of weekly memes, sometimes just 'cause.

I am mom of a not-quite-4-year-old --> going on 14-year-old --> and some days I think I'll lose my mind, but other days there is nothing I love more than being a mom.

Anyway, thanks SO much for stopping by. I hope I haven't bored you to tears with too many links, and if you don't click them, or only click a few and stop there, it's okay, I promise I won't be insulted and go all Brooklyn on you or anything. Oh, yeah, did you miss that? I'm a native NYC girl. You can take the girl out of Brooklyn, but you can't take Brooklyn out of the girl. Or something like that.

But I'm a sweet girl. I've even had someone say so. As in, "YOU'RE from NY CITY? But you're so ... NICE."


Y'all come back now, ya hear?


  1. Hello from the bloghop! And btw, I LOVE CHAI! Blessings on your day! Hope the food turns out awesome!

  2. I moved from NY to NC for about 4 years...loved it there....fell in love with Bojangles and their Sweet Tea. We moved back to NY (upstate) to start our family but we think about the South all the time.
    I can't wait to read some of your past posts!
    P.S. I know a super easy way to make Sweet Tea and it's pretty darn close to the South' least think it is.

  3. Hey there stopping by to say hi...I'm in your old neighborhood this weekend. NYC.

  4. LOL I know a few nice New fact, I don't personally know ANY New Yorkers that AREN'T nice...maybe I've just been lucky like that...or maybe it's because I grew up in Colorado! LOL I'm with you on the chai tea! That is my favorite kind! :D (And yes, I use a lot of exclamation points...LOL) And there's little better than reading and mommyhood. :) Nice to "meet" you!

  5. Lol, well I'm #217 so the linky list has grown :o) Glad to meet you! I'm from UT, which ppl may consider backwards, lol, but still moving to the south (VA) was quite the experience, though now we're stationed at Eglin AFB in FL.. still.. an adjustment, but a fun one! xo

  6. My uncle is from NYC :) Nice to visit your blog. Looking forward to your baking posts :)
