Blog Party 2009 - Woot! Woot!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Hello out there!

5 Minutes for Mom is having a Blog Party and I'm joining in...

What does Mama Sass bring to a Blog Party? Food - check. Definitely embarrassing stories. A little venting...okay, a LOT of venting. And most of the time, the most random thoughts you'll run across. My blog quite simply has an identity crisis. It's a cornucopia of stuff, and some days, I actually even surprise myself!

One other thing I need to point out - my web address is http://thesassymama.blogspot.com and the actual title of my blog is Mama Sass. Why doesn't my web address match? Simply put, mamasass.com could very well be mistaken for a site that caters to people who enjoy MILF's with large behinds. See where I'm going with this? Yeah. Not nice.

I've been blogging for almost 10 months and have picked up momentum now that I am no longer employed. This lack of employment is not by choice, but by layoff, and yes, I'm bitter. But it makes for some pretty interesting reading from time to time.

I have been married for four and a half years to my husband, B, and we have a super energetic and adorable one year old son, G. We also house a zoo of 'domestic' animals at our house - two dogs and two and a half cats - one only shows up weekly to eat. I've lived my entire life in the soggy Pacific Northwest, taking only a yearlong breather to live in the UK where I studied literature. I love to read, check out new music, and am addicted to reality tv, the trashier, the better. That's me in a nutshell.

I honestly have no idea how many people read my blog but I do know that a post I wrote mentioning Neil Diamond last week got me the most hits I've ever had in one day.

So, if you're here for the first time, welcome and thank you for taking the time to read. Please stop in from time to time, and please let me know you've been by in the comment section!

Hey Heather, I'm finally leaving a comment. I've been too lazy to figure out how to do it before. I always enjoy checking out your blog and seeing what you're up to. You're a great writer and you crack me up. I had wondered about the URL and just assumed it was taken. That is too funny! Keep writing!

Stopping by from UBP. It is very nice to meet you and your blog. I myself have a toddler learning/activity blog at www.superfunmama.blogspot.com. I would love for you to stop by sometime. I'm having fun visiting all the blogs. Have a magical day!

HeatherMama said...

Well, I'm definitely not here for Neil Diamond, lol. Found ya thru UBP. And excuse me, but I think I might be looking into a mirror! You're Heather? I'm Heather! I'm not so crafty, have no time management skills, I hate to clean and the word organized has yet to enter my vocabulary! lol

So nice to come across your blog. I cant wait to read whats next, so I am subscribing. :-)

Stopping by from the party. Our blog focuses on kids books - stop by and say hi sometime! (http://infantbibliophile.blogspot.com). Although we left our TV behind when we moved a few months ago, so I now don't watch at all, I too LOVE bad reality TV. My favorites are big brother, the bachelor/ette, top model... ah, I better not think too much about this or I'll be doing a midnight run to the big box store for a replacement.

Future Mama said...

Nice meeting you! You have such a beautiful family! Too cute! I am a little late to the blog party but I like your blog! I’m still having a little "after party" at my place too!

I'm not a mom yet myself but I'm thinking that may change one day soon! I'm trying to get the DL from moms on "the stuff they don't tell you beforehand!" haha.

Can't wait to pick your brain! And please feel free to share your advice or secrets anytime!
