Ultimate Blog Party 2008 ! ! !

Ultimate Blog Party 2008
*****THIS IS A STICKY POST !! FOR NEW POST SCROLL DOWN - YOU DONT WANT TO MISS ANYTHING ! THANKS*****


Hello Everyone ! ! Welcome to the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by http://www.5minutesformom.com/. You have reached my humble abode: Life With Two.

For anyone who doesn't know me, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Melissa and I am a SAHM to 2 wonderful children. Gavin is 5 and started kindergarten this year and Katelyn will be turning 2 in August. I am thankful every single day to my awesome husband Ken for working as hard as he does so I can stay at home and not miss a single minute with my children.

As for my blog, I started writing last September as a way to document milestones in the kids life. Funny things they say or do, accomplishments that they do, and everyday stuff ! I also LOVE that I have made so many new friends in the bloggy world and cant wait to make more at this party!

So, Lets Get Started! Here at Life With Two our drink of choice is Diet Coke....LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. But since I want to please everyone I also picked up some regular Coke and some Pepsi products. I also have some wonderful spinach dip, chips and salsa, and some homemade dips for you to nibble on. So grab a plate and sit back. Feel free to stay awhile and read thru some previous posts and get to know us. Leave a comment to let me know you where here and if you liked the spinach dip!!

Kalamazoo Mom of 2 said...

Hello - first time reader and a pretty new mom blogger here! First, let me say I enjoyed your party fare - however, I brought my own Diet Coke from McDonald's (for some reason, theirs tastes the BEST to this DC-aholic!)
Your blog is great - cute pics (and I too would be cursing those photo people who sent those ADORABLE pictures of Gavin home).
I look forward to returning....

i-Mommy said...

Cool party, Great food!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Hey there! I found you through the blog party and I must say,
Your family is too cute! I love the wordless Wednesday with the paper towels everywhere.

Anyway, nice to meet you!

Happy Blog Partying. Your photo down there is soooooooo cute. I would buy it, if I were you!

I do love spinach dip!

Brandie said...

Yeah for having coca-cola! It really is my favorite in the whole world LOL!
And chips and salsa, I could eat it for hours and hours ... actually we went to Chili's for lunch today and I barely ate my lunch (brought msot of it home) because I filled up on the chips and dip ROFL!

jen e. said...

Well, since I'm pregnant, no coke or diet coke for me, I'll have to drink my own caffeine free Pepsi :) Do love spinach dip tho! Is it hot or cold? I like both but LOVE the hot with the cheese and artichokes! Lol!
I'm not new to your blog, as you'll figure out, but just started my own. It's kinda scary at first, huh? Knowing anyone can read what you wrote?
Just wanted to say you do a really good job and I hope I'll be as good of a mom as you are :)
Maybe some day our kids can meet (after I give birth that is...ha!)!?!? They won't be bf's growing up like we were, but it would be nice if they knew each other, ya know?
Well et me know what you think of my blog and I'll take any pointers! Still learning how to work it all too :)

Shan said...

Great party. Thanks for the invite.

Spinach dip? Yum. Diet coke, not my fave, but I gave up sugar for Lent, so it'll have to do.

Have fun!

Sorry to stop by so late (we had quite a week at our house including a broken elbow, surgery and an overnight stay at the hospital for my princess) - but things are better now and I wanted to let you know that .....

YOU WON! This summer I will be sending you a copy of my children's book, My Name is Not Isabella.

Yeay, Confetti streamers, balloons released, doves released (okay, no doves, we were too cheap for doves).

Please contact me to let me know your mailing address. jenfos at yahoo dot com.

Remember that the books are not available yet. They are currently at the printers, so probably over the summer, so it will be a nice reminder of a great blog party. I hope that if you like it when you get it, you will spread the news.

If you forgot what I am talking about, come back and visit me at:

Enjoy
