Welcome to the Party!

It's Sunday night. Do you know where your parents are? Well, if you're under the age of 12, chances are - your parents are online and visiting some pretty cool blogs that are participating in this year's Ultimate Blog Party.

So far, I've been introduced to some pretty amazing bloggers and I've only just begun dipping into the long list of active bloggers in this year's fabulous event, hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom.

If this is your first time visiting here, Welcome! Let me introduce myself quickly so you can determine whether or not you and I have anything in common (chances are, you'll agree with at least one of the following statements):
  • I'm a single mom
  • I'm a Certified Parent Educator, Life Coach & Marketing Professional
  • I was laid off less than three months ago
  • I'm mother to a beautiful 5-year-old boy
  • I get along well with my ex-husband and talk to him more often than anyone else in my address book
  • I write for pennies but find the connections I've made online priceless
  • I live in San Diego
  • I grew up in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis / St. Paul)
  • I am in a long-distance relationship that adds adventure to my life
  • I have one sister
  • I have two parents
  • I live in a condo that is too small and that I own with my ex-husband
  • I drive a mini-van that I drive too fast and don't clean often enough
  • I send my son to a private school where he calls his teachers by their first names
  • I like my music loud, my men dark, my coffee black and my food spicy
  • I enjoy running and other self-inflicting hobbies like collecting tattoos
  • I love traveling, reading, writing, laughing, and spending time with friends
  • I enjoy beer, wine and other fine spirits
  • I wear glasses, have a rare disease (and one common one) but speak only one language
  • I'm pleased to meet you
