Party Time!


As with all online things, I'm arriving late to the party.  This time, I'm referring to 5 Minutes for Mom's 2010 Ultimate Blog Party.  Sounds pretty exciting, doesn't it?  The point of the party is to get to know other bloggers, and to find other great blogs.  Click the button below to learn more about the blog party and to find other great blogs to party at.

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

I'm supposed to write a "Party Post" to introduce myself, so grab a Solo cup of Coke and be sure to write your name on it with Sharpie (because that's how we party in my family), and grab a plate.  I just threw some chips into a bowl, and took some Pizza Rolls out of the oven, so grab some, and help yourself.  What?  So I'm not Martha Stewart, as evidenced from my attempt at food blogging .  Anyhow, have a seat (or stand, or whatever you normally would do at an imaginary online party).

As my blog title suggests (and my About Me section that you can barely read over the graphic-argh!) attests, I'm an imperfect mom.  I don't pretend to have it all together for your sake-I pretty much let it all hang out.  I have lots of bad habits, one of which, you can read about here .  I sometimes share about funny things my kids have said or done, or even funny things my kids have drawn .  I usually keep it pretty light and fluffy around here, but I am a Christian, and sometimes I'm so exicted about a Wow Moment I've had with God that I have to post about it.  Sometimes I post about childhood memories, like the post below, or this one about my first car.  Mostly, I post about random incidents, things that strike me as funny, or whatever pops into my head.  If you really want to know more about me in general, read this .

I'm pretty new at this blogging thing, both with the blog writing, and blog reading, so I'm looking forward to "meeting" some new folks and finding some new blogs!  Whether you are a regular reader, visiting from the Party, or just stumbled upon my blog, thanks for visiting!  Now...help me eat the rest of these Pizza Rolls, and then we can go outside and play Badminton-without a net, because that's how we do it in my family.  We're a little crazy like that...  Oh yeah! There's also a pinata, shaped like Jon Gosselin (wouldn't everyone like to take a few blind whacks at him with a baseball bat?), so grab your goodie bags, and head outside!

  6. Thanks for stopping by! So glad I came over because there is actually NOTHING I would like more right now than a Pizza Roll and a whack at Jon Gosselin!

  7. Hey, Bethany! I found you thru UBP. Love your blog, especially the title!

  8. Well, girl, we can so hang out then. Because any time someone pretends like they are a perfect mom, I run away as quickly as I can(or click that little X to get out of their blog).

    Is it okay if I put sweat tea in my cup instead, though?

    I'm your newest follower!

  17. Naw I'd like to take a swing at Kate! If she only treated him like a man and not another of her kids, her kids would still have a dad in the house...but thats just my 2 cents :) I think I'd like your family cause thats how we do things too. How'd softball go, my son won his game today hit the winning ball...so proud. Oh thought we were still chatting over warm coke and pizza rolls....don't walk away...what Kates a b*tch and you know it..don't be mad....what? I know you are but what am I? Well thats how we do it in my family.

  18. Thanks for visiting, everyone! I've never had so many comments before, ths is exciting!
    Michelle-yeah, Kate has problems too, but now I wonder if he was just like this all along, and she had to treat him like that? Plus, the whole college age floozy thing....
    Anywho, softball was fine. It was the firt practice of the year, and it was cold and early, so llofus parents sat in our cars. Congrats to your son!

  25. Welcome to the Bloggy bandwagon! It is addictive. It starts out all sneaky and fun and innocent and then you find yourself saying "I am so blogging about that" for everything! lol!


    Thanks for swinging by my blog. Have a great UBP2010

  34. Thanks for the visits and comments! I never knew so many people liked Pizza Rolls! Also, the Jon Gosselin pinata is pretty much smashed to smithereens, and the Godiva chocolates have all been scooped up, so I've decided to hand John Edwards and Tiger Woods pinatas, as well-have fun! I'll blind fold you, spin you around, and then you can shoot away at them with my son's red Rider BB Gun! Just don't hit the cats....

  44. How fun! Who can resist a Jon Gosselin pinata? Hehehehe. That's so mean. And so true.

    We write our names on Solo Cups with a sharpie too! Sometimes for fun, we use fake names, I know, it's pitiful ;)

    I posted a giveaway today that you might like - it's children's Christian music - The Big Green Alligator by La-la Lisa. Fun and faith!
