Ultimate Blog Party 2010!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

It's time for the Ultimate Blog Party 2010 hosted by the two awesome ladies over at!!!

Hello to any new readers out there in blogland! I think everyone that will be reading this post is new to my blog, so let me explain a little bit about what's going on over here.

Some time ago, I decided that I was unhappy. Not depressed-need-to-be-on-meds kind of depressed, just unhappy with what was going on in my life and unhappy with myself. Though, please don't be offended by that previous statement if you are affected by depression. My best friend, my father, my sister, and brother-in-law, and other various people in my life ARE affected by depression, anxiety, etc. It's not something I take lightly. I just didn't want people suggesting that I see a doctor.

Anyway, it seemed like every day I would make this mental list of the things I wanted to change, but everyday I would realize that even though I did this the day before, nothing had changed. That was the point - NOTHING WAS CHANGING! Why? Simple! I wasn't doing anything to change it.

So this blog is my outlet for all of those things and my journey to improve myself and to make my life into what I want it to be. I thought, surely there are other women out there who feel the same way I do? They want to lose weight, be better mothers and homemakers, be more financially secure, have a more spiritual self, or just break out of their shell and find a more confident self. I couldn't possibly be the only person who wants any (or all) of those things! So, if you're looking for any of those thing, along with a little bit of humor, then you've come to the right place!

You can take a peek into the things that I hope to accomplish and be sure to check out my first giveaway here!

So please take a look around. Feel free to leave any comments or tips for me. I'd love to hear from you!!

Now, onto the party! I would especially LOVE to win any of the Blog Design packages!

But I would be equally as stoked to win:

Get fit pack
Any of the Amazon Gift Card
Tupperware prize pack
Be My Guest Certificate
Shutterfly Gift Certificate

Letter of the Week Preschool Curriculum
