No-Go BlogHer blog hop and questions!!!


Yes I do wish I could go to BlogHer but I'm not sure if its because that it would be three days of not being  "a  full time mom". Wear heels without carrying a diaper bag and dropping kids off to soccer or to network with other great mom bloggers that I love! Either way life did not have it in the cards. The kids are hitting a climax of activity this time of year and with a husband on call as much as he is there is no way I could make it. So I am stoked (is stoked still a cool word to use?) to be joining the NoGo BlogHer!
 When did you start blogging? I never even knew anything of the blogging world till I joined a site called The Bump during my last pregnancy with my son and started talking to other moms out there and seeing what blogs where all about 
Why did you start blogging?
I loved the idea of blogging first. I have always as a kid wanted to keep a diary. I had locked unicorn diaries,  Lisa Frank diaries and many other glittery things that I never finished. I always started out well with 2 weeks of solid entries and then blank pages. So the idea of blogging and having a record of my life was very intriguing.  

What is one thing you are doing this week that is way cooler than attending BlogHer?
We have swim lesson for the kids the rest of the week and then Saturday I was asked to play in a 4v4 sand volleyball tournament. Right now I'm thinking "how the hell am I not going to die while I pretend to be 22 again". UGH! 

Share a post that is your favorite or the best description of you.

  5. Lisa Frank!!! Loved her too!! Cute blog!! Newest follower :)

  6. I did the same thing...had a diary or journal that just stopped! I used to have a Word Doc journal that I wrote an entry for every single day...until I started dating my boyfriend and instead of being full of angst and drama, every entry started to be "Like's so great! I'm so happy!" and then just fizzled out...

    Anyway, thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great Non-BlogHer week!

  15. Did you survive the volleyball tournament? That 4 on 4 is way too hard for me. I'm okay with 6 on 6 and used to play a couple seasons of sand volleyball with a team from work.

    We did go to the Browns scrimmage game Saturday and will post about it on Tuesday. Nice to "meet" you.
