I have been waiting for this for a YEAR!


Not long after I started blogging, I stumbled upon an amazing blogging community called SITS. It's a gathering place - a network, if you will, where bloggers support each other and visit each other in order to make new friends, and discover new blogs! (If you haven't visited and haven't participated yet GET OVER THERE!!!)

Today is finally the day that I get to host an OPEN HOUSE of sorts! I've showered, I'm wearing a BRAND new outfit from the Goodwill, and I am chilling the cheapest bottle of wine (and when I say wine I really mean vodka) that I could afford.

Now, pull up a chair while I pour you nice glass - and you can browse some posts I've selected for your reading pleasure!

I'll slip in some humor, some confessions, and some spooky encounters that still give me goosebumps.



Dream a little dream of me.......


The measure of a man....


How to Gross out Your Daughter...


We DO learn stuff in kindergarten...




Thanks for stopping! And can you PLEASE take a dog with you when you leave? They NEVER bark, and stay in the front yard when they run away.......


and if you like what you read, you can leave a tip (vote) over HERE~!!!!

Angelia Sims said...

Well my mom has 23 dogs and NONE of them leave either. A few more won't hurt if you want to take yours there.

Almost a year of blogging? Way to go! Congrats on that and your SITS day.

Did you get the Vodka out of the freezer yet? Let's toast!

Brandi said...

Happy SITS Day! I'm so impressed by your blog. Off to wander around it some more!

My Domicile Style said...

You are hysterical! And I am not just saying that because it is 11:20 at night, and I am deliriously tired, and really should be going to bed. Have a great SITS day!

Shelley said...

As my good friend says, "I love your guts". I love your blog and am now following (since I noticed you didn't have any followers and are probably feeling a little lonely right now).
I bet you ROCK as a teacher.
Love how you grossed your daughter out.
Over from SITS, congratulations on being featured.

I'll read more another day :)

Just Breathe said...

Congratulations on your SITS day!
I was looking at your followers, wow that is impressive. So I thought if it goes to 1349 I will be number 1350. It did and I am.
I have weird obsession with things like that. If you don't have many followers I become one. If you have up a March of Dimes with no $ in it I will donate. So I give away the family money and follow way to many people :) I love the way you grossed out your daughter.
Go Mom! Talk with you later....

Kim said...

I've been here more than once. Congrats on your day!

Raine said...

Happy SITS day!

...can't take a dog, but I left 2 more for you, the others just looked so lonely. ;)

btw, the post on grossing out your daughter sounds so much like my mom. I guess I get the ultimate revenge though, she gets to be there when I give birth.

Happy SITS day! You had me at vodka. As for the mom part I can't personally relate, but love to read about the tales from the mommy side. Maybe it will help me deal with my BF's four kids. (Who I not so secretly adore)

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

First of all, congratulations on being FB over at SITS.

Second of all, WTH took so long for THAT to happen? I was surprised to see your name today and thought, WOW, did she just sign up or something? She should have been FB-ed long ago. Still, the awesome advantage, of course, is that SITS is even bigger than it was a year ago, so you get LOTSA LOTSA peoples comin' over.

Well done you, and PLEASE tell me you're coming to BlogHer this year!

XOXOXO
-Margaret
