I’m really exciting to be participating in the 2010 Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5MinutesforMom.com. It is a great way to find new blogs to spend your time reading (now if I can just find some more of that time!) It is also a great way to get your blog out there for readers to find… it could be what they’ve been looking for all along. So head on over to their website and join the fun! Did I mention there are prizes?? Yes – and you can win them!
Now for my introduction. I’m lovelyritaann. I’m a 29 year old stay at home mom of three beautiful children. They create a world for me where there is never a dull moment. On Christmas day of 2008, I became engaged to the most wonderful man I could ever imagine, Bobby. He’s the handsome guy in the picture with me. My life consists of my family, my home and finding ways to entertain us. For me, (besides my family, of course) entertainment is at my fingertips. My two older children are in school every day, all day so, between tending to and loving our baby, my computer is my gateway to the outside world. I’m not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing. I admit, I need more person to person, adult interaction; however, sometimes that is just not feasible. Therefore, if social networking keeps me sane, then so be it! At some point, I would like to establish having a career while still being able to stay at home with my children.
My son, Ryan, is 14 years old. He is currently a Freshman in High School. He also plays bass in a band. Sometimes I look at him and think how did time get away from us – where did the years go? There’s something special between us. I had him young – so, in a way, we kind of grew up together.
My daughter, Briana, is six years old. She is currently in first grade and loves school! She is a Girl Scout and we just got done selling cookies… she sold almost 300 boxes! Good thing they don’t sell them all year or we’d be in trouble! I’m a sucker for those thin mints!
My son, Dominic, is a little over five months old. He is such a happy baby – he is so much fun! Fortunately, I’ve been a stay at home mom since he has been born. I love being home with him – he keeps me busy. When he sleeps, I try to do bloggy things.
Blogging is something I recently started and I’m really loving it so far. Sometimes, I find it hard to dedicate myself to consistently post. More often, I find myself sitting here on forums trying to figure out WordPress. It seems like if it isn’t one thing, it’s another. WordPress is not to blame, it is the user – me. I’ll get it right one of these days. That is actually why I’m so late posting this post… trying to figure out where my pages went from my navigation bar. Above I mentioned prizes… here are my top three picks if I happen to be chosen for a prize:
- GRAND PRIZE at the Ultimate Blog Party 2010 is a Toshiba Satellite L505D-ES5025
- INTL 2 – Win a custom WordPress blog by Uniquehorn Designs. Provided by: Uniquehorn Designs
- USC 17 – $200 Apple Gift certificate. Provided by: CmomGo
If the above prizes are no longer available if I were to be chosen, I would also love the following in the given order: US39, US101, US3, US18, USC13, INTL 8, US105, US104, USC35, USC39, INTL1, USC3, USC15, USC8, US112, uSC37, US71, US76, US23, US8, US73, US74, US87, USC25, US49, US61, USC21, INTL4, US68. If none of those are available, I love to relax as a mom, I need to get in shape and I have three children – 14 (boy), 6 (girl) & 5 months (boy). Anyway, I hope you decide to visit 5MinutesforMom.com and join the 2010 Ultimate Blog Party and have some fun! See you there!
