It's a Blog Party!

That's right, even though I'm sick, I'm still going to whoop it up with a party!!

Welcome everyone to the D-Listed Blog Party! Go here to read more about the party details and if you haven't joined in yet, do it! One lucky partier will even win a $100 visa gift card! Who couldn't use that?!

I'd offer you all lots of handshakes and hugs, but well, I'm sick, so... a friendly wave and smile will have to do. Oh, and some yummy cupcakes! Once I'm better and we're more acquainted, hugs will commence. :)

A bit about me and my blog.

I'm Christine - I'm a wife and a stay at home mom with a 7 month old girl - Rosemary. Yikes. Still getting used to that one. She turns 7 months tomorrow, so I've just done the switch from 6 and half and 6 and three quarters and so on to full out 7 months. :) My newborn baby is well on her way to being a full fledged adult baby...

Anywho, I started a 365 blog back in January and that was how I was introduced to the wonderful world of blogging. I began entering all of these wonderful blog giveaways and meeting great bloggers and in March, I decided to take the plunge and start my very own blog. This is brand new territory for me, so I'm still in the learning phase of blogging.

So far I love it! I've met a ton of great ladies (and even a couple gents) who I'm proud to call friends. I'm having fun with the blog for now, and I've already got a great list of topics I'd like to touch on about life as a Mom for down the road. The only problem seems to be finding time to work on these posts! So, while my posts are pretty much all about day to day life with Rosemary for now, I'm hoping to step it up a notch in the future and start writing on a few other Mom topics. Stay tuned!

I think that's about it for now. I'm not really up to par, so I'm at a loss of more great excitement for you. I'd love for you to take a look around while you're here.

Please be patient, I'm still new to this!

For those that are interested, I do have four great giveaways going on this week (Vintage Pearl gc, a Baby Dipper, aden + anais sleep bag, and Baisey and Paisley books), so feel free to enter if you'd like!

I love comments so please comment here or any other posts I've made! I pride myself on being one of those bloggers who responds to my commenter's and also stops by your blog in return. Comments are my favorite way to connect with my readers as well as other bloggers.

If you follow my blog, twitter or fb, let me know and I'll be sure to follow back! Don't forget to leave your blog link so I can check out your party too!

Thanks for stopping by and I really do look forward to meeting you!

Take care!


  1. Your blog is great, especially since you haven't been at this for too long. You're way ahead of the game! I'm hoping to join in on the blog party soon, just waiting on my button:) My baby is just weeks away from turning one and I still tell people that we just had a baby - I think I'm in denial:) Well hope you get feeling better soon. Take care!

  5. I just cannot get enough of your sweet baby girl. Those cheeks...gosh we need to get her and GG together, what a picture that'd make. Anyway, have been off the computer for a while and am just back making the rounds and wanted to say hi. Oh and if you find something to slow the clock, let me know. GG turns 10 months this week...ugh! Hugs!

    No problem Shannon, I haven't been on too much lately as I've had this icky sinus issue. I WISH we could get them together! Some day.

    It's weird. I'm not on the computer for four of five days and it feels like forever! What did people do without internet??

  12. Christine, I'm going to have to pick your brain about blogging one of these days. I started a little after you and have about one tenth the readers. Maybe it's because my blog is akin to spam.
