Ultimate Blog Party 2009 -- Have YOU Joined???

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Well, I guess it's better to join late than never, right?!!? I've been seeing this all over the blogosphere, so I thought I'd join the party. Besides, everyone likes a good party, right? If you haven't joined, then hop on over to 5 Minutes for Mom and sign up. From what I hear, it's a fabulous party, so you are sure to have lots of fun.

If this is your first visit to my blog, well, let me give you a nice southern "Hello." Pull up a chair and let me introduce you to my family. I'm Sherrie, and I'm married to Brian. We'll celebrate our 9th anniversary on July 1st. We have two boys, Caleb and Micah. Caleb is almost 6, and Micah just turned a year old on 3/5. They are the light of our lives and keep us on our toes. We've also got one pooch named Little Man. We aren't really sure how old he is, or what type of dog he is because he's a Pound Puppy. So, we just say he's almost 10 (he's got lots of gray hair, so who knows). Brian owns his own business working for Visa/Mastercard, and I stay home with the boys and homeschool Caleb. We live in the lovely state of Georgia where we have the craziest weather ever. If you want to know more about us, then check out the "Stars of the Show" snippet in the left-hand column.

I'm sure you may be wondering why I chose "Boogers, Screams, Headaches, and Dreams" for my blog title, so I'll share the story. Boogers -- well, I've got two boys and I'm sure you can imagine where I got that from. :) Screams -- our youngest little guy likes to scream. We think he screams just to hear himself scream sometimes, and well, it will lead to the next word. Headaches -- I get lots of headaches thanks to the boogers and screams. :P Dreams -- Well, we all need to take a rest and dream a little at the end of all the chaos. So, there you have it.

I started blogging back in April of 2008 (it's almost been a year...an anniversary giveaway is bound to take place -- hint, hint). The main reason for this blog is to keep our families informed of our daily happenings. It has sinced turned into a sort of therapy and social outlet for me.

So, if you've been checking out the UBP 2009, then you know that there are lots of fab prizes. Here are my top three choices:

#58 Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer from Moms Who Think

#49 Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD and The Biggest Loser Family Cookbook from Pudget: Losing Weight on a Budget

#19 $50GC to Target from Shoot-Me-Now

And -- if those prizes are already chosen, then I'd love #2, #5, #44 or anything else related to young children, especially boys as I've got two...5 years old and 1 year old.

I hope you enjoy yourself at the party and be sure to let me know that you were here. If you like what you see, then become a follower. I'll try to keep up the entertainment. :)

Boogers caught my eye - I have 3 little boys, so I know ALL ABOUT the boogers...lol

Just stopping by from the UBP to say hiya :)

Christi said...

I totally got the title and I only have one boy (just turned 6). You just never know what is going to go through their little head next. Mine was afraid he would go blind because of a booger. He was picking his nose and touched his eye, his sweet older sister told him that it could cause an infection which would make him go blind. We endured 4 days of "Do you see a booger in my eye" before we found out the whole story.

I love your blog! Stopping by from the party.

I Am Boymom said...

Laughing so hard about your blog title, I am sooo with you on the boogers and the headache thing! I found you through UBP...I will stop by as often as I can! Always love to chat with fellow Boymoms!
