Party Time!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

It's the Ultiamte Blog party!

I'm joining a tad late, but last year I missed it all together.  So, better late than never, right?

Ok, friends:

I'm Sandy.  This is my melting pot blog.  I post about anything and everything that strikes my fancy.

I am gluten free, dairy free, low carb, debt free,  (mostly) worry free.  I love crafts and DIY things.

We're currently in the proces of a major home renovation (NOT an exaggeration), so I post a lot of pictures and unabashedly brag about my husband's talents (and good looks).

I don't take too many things too seriously, and love laughing at the mundane things. 

Please introduce yourself below!
Name?  Blog?  Likes/ dislikes?  Favorite vegetable, holiday, and vacation spot?


BOWquet said...

Hi there! I am E, owner of BOWquet! I LOVE ribbons and fabrics and love creating bows. I love girly things. I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter and another daughter on the way!

My favorite holiday is probably Thanksgiving, though thanks to family members, every holiday of my life equals to great stress. We LOVE going to Disney and go anytime we get a chance. :)
I don't really have a favorite vegetable, I like several of them equally. lol
Check out my blog

BTW I LOVE your blog. It's so encouraging to "meet" people with our same beliefs and goals. Our family looks at us like we're crazy b/c we don't use credit for anything and pay everything in cash. :)

Definitely, better late than never to the party--just consider yourself fashionably late! :)

I love the clever way you tied in your husband as a carpenter and your Father as a carpenter...and that you're always "under construction." :)

Please do stop by my blog, Notes in the Key of Life

You'll also find a link to my book/reading blog there.

Hope you'll stop by and say hi!

You pulled me in with the Dr.Seuss quote. One of my favs. We actually live about 20 minutes from Dr. Seuss's home in MA.

Stopping by from UBP. Please come by and check out my blog about mothering and all things green living.

Also love that you brag on your husband, totally worth it and awesome to see.

Hi! Thanks for visiting me for the UBP. I'm Jessie, I can't remember the last time I had an actual vacation but I prefer mountains to beach, I like most veggies, especially zucchini ... was that all the questions? Oh, and I like Christmas! Of course!

Hello!! YOu have a great looking family!

I have 5 crazies people usually call kids, a Deaf Hubs, and a dog that has recently decided he wants to eat poopie diapers. (I just gagged writing that. Sorry.)

Ummm...That's pretty much my life. At least for now. They consume me. No, I don't mean they eat me. The deserve all my time.

Hope to see ya at my place!

Hi Sandy! I'm Anne, and I’m belatedly stopping by from the UBP. Nice to meet you! I am a new follower : )
I have two blogs, and I’d love for you to stop by when you get a minute. Thanks! (A free giveaway every weekday) (Family blog)

TDM Wendy said...

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by Tales from the Motherhood and Confessions of a Former Child Actress. Under construction? So crazy and stressful. Seems like you have a the right attitude.
And what's with the dairy free, gluten free? Allergies or just because it is healthier?
Debt free and worry free is a great way to live!
