It's My SITS Day!

If your visiting from SITS, welcome! 

Are you familiar with SITS?

SITS is made up of over 8,000 women bloggers who provide support and inspiration to each other!

Today I was blessed to be the Featured Blogger!

Feel free to look around.

A little about me:
I am a former teacher who is now a SAHM. Em is my three year old who has a penchant for hiding/losing her glasses (which is why she is without her glasses in the picture below) and who recently surprised us all with her ability to purchase smurfberries. Madison is my one year old who idolizes her sister. Then there is my husband who has an addiction similar to my blogging addiction.  We're expecting a little boy in June and by how active this kid is already, he'll be going nonstop from the get go.  We also can't forget Alley, our rescued cat who my husband refers to as "the Doorstop" since her favorite hobby is laying around underfoot, unmoving. 

I have a magazine addiction and am a self-professed bibliophile who just finished Steig Larrson's series. I also secretly (or not so secretly anymore) love to watch The Real Housewives tv series on Bravo (and other reality tv) which I've found is the quickest way to drive my husband from the room. And I love practical jokes.

There is a little bit of everything here. Who doesn't want to be more organized or save money and keep their kids entertained? My informative posts (an excuse to exercise my brain which evidenced by my lack of ability to win at Scrabble is not quite as sharp as it used to be and to help keep me on track) are listed under "Articles".  I also write about motherhood from giving up feeling guilty over feeling guilty, being scared of my daughter's toys, to ending up on the naughty list at Christmas and life in general such as the night we broke in our newly finished basement with friends and neighbors and a humorous look at pet names for loved ones


Like what you read? I always love meeting new readers and I'm also on twitter @blogmom221 and Facebook.

Enjoy reading and thanks for stopping by! And thanks to the girls at SITS for featuring me today!

I'm Domestic not Dead said...

I don't just like it, I love it. Because all in all, motherhood would be a lot more enjoyable and a lot less stressful if we would just sit down and be practical about it. Following you on twitter! And happy SITS day!

Margaret Almon said...

Kelly at Home said...

Girl, I *love* me some Bravo!! I even have the hubby watching the Jersey housewives (but he's a huge Godfather and Scarface fan and I think senses some similarities, LOL).

What did you think of the Larssen series? I read his first but haven't moved on yet to the second and third. I'm also a giganto reader and love meeting other mamas with their noses in a book!

Happy SITS day and Friday!

Kelly :o)

Have a happy Friday!

KLZ said...

Happy SITS Day!! Pathetically, I've been doing this a year and never joined SITS. I'm always happy to stumble across someone's day and pretend I know what's going on :)

Selena and Anna said...

Happy SITS Day!! Your girls are so cute:-) A little jealous because between my sister and I we have 6 boys but wouldn't trade our boys for anything!!!

Waisting Time said...

Happy SITS day! My boys used to wrestle and, invariably, one or both pairs of glasses got totally bent out of shape!

Jill said...

Happy SITS day! You are blessed with a beautiful family. I'm 29 and still have a knack for losing my glasses. :)

Katherine said...

Stopping by from SITS. Your blog is just amazing! I love reality TV for the same reason - I get to watch TV by myself.

Congrats on expecting a little boy. We have two boys and I just love it! Little boys are delightful. (I'm sure that little girls are, but I can't comment.)

Congrats on SITS day! I am also a HUGE Real Housewives fan. When my husband's earphones weren't working he was miserable (yes he could have gone into the other room but "wanted to spend time with me").

nmaha said...

Congratulations on getting your SITS day.

Wonder how the little guy is going to cope with a bunch of girls who probably keep cuddling him :-) Best of luck on that.

I'm going to take a stroll around your very inviting blog. Expect to find my comments peppered all over.

Nice to meet you Joy!!! :) What a wonderfully, adorable blog! I am a teacher and I always tell my husband that after we have kids, I'm going to be a SAHM and blog all day. He shakes his head :) But you inspire me! Thanks!
