Party Post

OK, so since I’ve given up the idea of giving up blogging for Lent, I decided, why not join a party instead? So, there is this Ultimate Blogging Party going on. It basically gives exposure to your blog and helps you meet other bloggers. Yes, because that is certainly what I need in life. I know, I know. However, I need to feed my addiction, so humor me people!

Anyway, anyone can join the party and you may win special prizes. Oh yes, my favorite price FREE is featured in the word prize, so I just had to do it. Why don’t you join too?

Well, part of being part of the party means you need to leave a party post. What’s a party post you ask? Well, it introduces you to all that might stop by and let’s them know why they should hang around and check out your blog. So, here goes…

So…what to expect…

My name is Amy. That’s me over to your left. I’m the adult, sometimes. Rocking Happy I live in a bustling metropolis.  Yeah, right. I actually live in the midwest, and although it’s a city, I live in a quiet area and I like it that way.  I’m a recovering social worker and current Stay at Home Mom.

Anyway, I am married to Mr. Right, for nearly 3 years and we have one beautiful daughter, not that I’m biased or anything, we call, the peanut. She’s 1. She enjoys such things as watching the toilet flush, eating my mail and pulling the dogs feet even though she gets growled at. Who could tell me she’s not going to be the next female Einstein?!?!

I blog about my little universe here in corn country, my always struggling faith and desires, and, I hate to say, but just the mundane. I try not to make it so though, there has to be a bit of humor in everything. Ugh, who wouldn’t want it that way, right?

I love posting pics of my peanut, so you’ll see many. I also just discovered smilies so that will be my new passion for the next 5 minutes until something better comes along. I’m a big music fan so I’m always changing it and explaining why. Hey, I said I TRY not to be mundane, ok?!?! I post recipes sometimes and I enjoy finding new memes to do. Right now I’m doing Thursday 13 and Friday Feast. Also, I have another blog, just for a bit more confusion. I can’t decide which I like better so it’s just a mirror, however, it contains tons more pictures and music and other fun stuff, over at spaces. The addy is

So, that’s me in a nutshell, hope you enjoy your visit. Leave me a note and I’ll visit you too!

    Hi Amy! It’s nice to meet you! I had to laugh at your blog name – how true, how true! There are so many days I tend to ramble that … well, blahblahblah. *grin*

    Your daughter is ADORABLE! That grin … she had me grinning right back at her. It sounds like you have a great family and life is good. Good for you!

    Hi! Glad to meet you. Strange question, but I’m really curious what picture you are standing in front of with your family. From what I can see it somewhat resembles a print I have and now I have a need to know
