Fashionably Late to the Ultimate Blog Party

Okay, so I'm going to follow my friend Single Mom in the South and take her lead by jumping in at the Ultimate Blog Party before it's too late.

So here goes ...

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Welcome to my 'hood, everyone. If it's your first time, let me show you around.

Sometimes I need to remind myself that I am amazing:

She wants to be like me

or that a kick in the pants wouldn't hurt in the least:

A Letter To Myself

And sometimes I like to remind other moms that they're not alone:

You know you're a mom when ...

Being a mom means

And I have to admit that
I often feel like I'm in a rinse, lather, repeat mode. Anyone else ever get that way, too?

I'll also confess that there are moments I'd truly like to find myself Walking Away ...

But for the most part motherhood is incredible and I love sharing the day to day with my readers. Along with a few books I've enjoyed reading. Okay, a lot of books I've enjoyed reading. I love books. I can't help myself. See that tab up top there? It's called Reading with Redneck for a reason.

I've also got a giveaway going on right now. Jaclyn has created these incredible jewelry items in honor of her brother and you're not going to want to miss a chance to check them out.

Joey's Hot Dog Necklace and Bracelet giveaway

So sit back, relax, and get to know me better. And please leave me a note to let me know you came by!

Cup of Chai, anyone?
