Ultimate Blog Party 2012 {My Introduction}

Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Hey yall! Thanks for stopping by. Come in and get comfy! We’ve got Diet Coke, Dr. Pepper, and coffee. 🙂

A little about me…..
I’m a mom of 2 boys (“Teenager” who’s 14 & “Monkey” who’s 8).
I’m a native Texan now living in Alabama. Auburn, Alabama that is.
I’m a graduate and now employee of Auburn University.
I love living in a college town.
I supervise college students as part of my job. I love it!
I used to teach elementary school.
I love to travel.
I’ve been on 6 cruises and have another one booked in September!
My boys keep us very busy.
My husband is my rock and my encourager.
I love to write (most of the time), but have never professed to be good at it. 😉 I used to be “the best writer in my class” according to all my English teachers, but I think I lost that gift as soon as I graduated from college.
I love reading blogs and love to have regular visitors. I lost most of regular visitors a few years ago when I “sh-tuff” going on and I wasn’t able to blog for several months. That really made me sad, but I continue to blog because I love reading through my archives.
I would love to hear from you and I promise that I will stop by your blog and say hi, too!

You can read even more about me here.
I’m on:

Let’s parrrrrrrrrr-tay!

  2. Hi there! I am stopping over from UBP12 to say hello! My daughter is in her first year of college so that is common theme around our home! 🙂

    Just stopping by from UBP12. My husband would love to go on a cruise…I may need some convincing =)Stop by my blog if you get a chance =) Have a great weekend!

  4. You sound like you have a pretty nice life 2 boys cannot be easy. I am not in teenage land yet but have 9 year old so get you on that one.

    What a blessing that your husband is your rock. Mine can be found out sailing alot of the time.

    I’m coming to you from UBP but IRL from the northern Beaches of Sydney Australia.

  5. I would love to go on a cruise one day!

    Stopping by from UBP2012! I’m from Texas. Auburn is beautiful! We visited the campus about 6 years ago. I’m a mom to two boys like you. My husband and I love to travel. We’re both teachers so in the summer we take advantage of being off a couple of months. Road trip!!! Nice to “meet” you!

  7. Ginny Marie says:

    I have been meeting so many former teachers who blog at UBP12, and here you are, another one! I used to live in DeKalb, IL which is also a college town. It was fun!

    I’d love if you could stop by my blog and leave a comment. This is my 3rd year of participating in UBP, and my goal is to get 100 comments! (What can I say…I’m a dreamer!)

  8. Nice to “meet” you! Just dropping by from The Ultimate Blog Party I am looking forward to networking with you and getting to know you better! I hope you have the opportunity to visit our blog! http://www.thehealthymoms.net/2012/04/ultimate-blog-party-2012.html

    Nice to meet you…here for the Parrrty! What a host you are to supply such a nice variety of drinks. 🙂 I too live in a college town, it definitely gives the city/town a different feeling. I look forward to getting to know you more. If you have time, you are welcome to stop over in my bloggie world. http://richjmylife.blogspot.com/2012/04/ubp12-let-party-begin.html

  10. Adena says:

    Nice to meet you, visiting via UBP12. btw, love the party face 😀

  11. nicki says:

    I have yet to convince my husband of the benefits of going on a cruise and you have been on 6?!! I must be doing something wrong. I am new to the party and am so happy to see so many women who are so excited about their lives. I am an attorney who practices criminal defense and family law and I my view of the world sometimes becomes a little blurry. Thanks for you invite. I will be checking in with you.

  12. Deirdre says:

    Happy UBP!! 6 Cruises?!? My sister just left for her first yesterday- can’t wait to hear what she thinks. You must LOVE them!

  13. Dana says:

    Hi! I really love that picture! I also have two kids (12,4) and we moved to TX almost 2 yrs ago. We were first in Carrollton, then recently bought a home in Rockwall. I love college towns too. I grew up in Durham, NC (Duke) but we were a family of big UNC Tarheel fans. I have never been on a cruise…hopefully someday. Is the food as good as they say it is? Just wondering. My hubby is my Rock too. I can also relate to “stuff” that keeps you from blogging. I am now following you on twitter.
    🙂 Happy #UBP12

  14. RoryBore says:

    I’m so happy to meet you, but trying not to be jealous of your 6 cruises! that is awesome. Me and hubby haven’t been anywhere since the kids arrived. not awesome. but I keep the faith that one day, our time will come again too.

  15. Great to have you at the party!

    6 cruises??? WOW… you’ve got a good life going on. LOL

    About living in a college town… I don’t think I’d like it. When I visited Boston, I felt kinda sad and old. I think I’d get down if I were around college kids all the time. Even though I did go to university, I think I feel like I didn’t get the full experience that I wish I’d had. So I think that would make me regretful… even though I don’t actually regret anything and I love my life.

    Anyway… enough heavy stuff.

    Talk later

  16. Jen says:

    Hi!! I’m sorry. I have to say it.. ROLL TIDE! 🙂 Okay. Whew… Now that that is taken care of 😉 I am a Bama girl transplanted to Florida. LOL I am a new follower through Linky, FB and Networked blogs. Looking forward to learning more about ya and visiting often .:) Have a great time UBP 12 partying!!

  17. Angel says:

    I always thought I would love to take a cruise but then there is that little sea sick issue I have so that squashed that thought. My dad used to live in Galveston Texas at the Flagship hotel. WAAAYY back in the day , like moons and moons ago. I hate when you lose followers because life gets in the way of blogging. Ha! this from the woman who just up and moved my blog to WP on my own domain. Happy UBP

  18. Oh those teen years! I have a 12 year old and feel like we are already in the teen years.

    I love a busy life!

    Thinking a cruise may be our next family vacay. I will have to stop by for some tips.

  19. Crystal says:

    Hoppin’ over from UBP12. Thanks for sharing. How about a water? I am on a diet.. this weight is killing me 🙂

  20. Michelle says:

    I used to think I wanted to take a cruise, but then I had to live in a house without a yard…with my 5 kids…and I changed my mind. LOL

    Just party hopping! See you around.

  21. Audrey says:

    I am officially jealous of you. 6 cruises?! Man, I’ve been trying to talk my husband into just one for years but he is so not into cruises. He once turned down the opportunity to go to Mexico on a cruise for free. I had to toss my hands in the air to that. lol! #UBP12
