The Ultimate Blog Party with 5M4M

Although a little late to the festivities, I'm joining in with the 600 or so other moms already linked up to the Ultimate Blog Party over at 5 Minutes for Mom.
Ultimate Blog Party 2010

If you haven't participated before... The Ultimate Blog Party has become an exciting tradition in the “Momosphere”. It is a bloggy carnival where participating bloggers publish a “party post” introducing themselves and then party hop through the linky lists meeting other bloggers.

This is my first time joining in, and I'm looking forward to finding lots of new blogs to read. And I'm excited about all the fab prizes being offered too (#105, #72, #83, and USC 8 all look wonderful).

If this is your first time here, welcome! I'm Staci, mom to one crazy little boy. I love taking pictures, exploring the outdoors, and baking. (And right about now, I feel like I'm writing a really bad personal ad.)I've been blogging for almost 2 years. Over time, my blog has gone through many changes. Now, I find myself writing more and more about the things I love. My family, my photos, my food.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope to see you back again soon.

Hey Stacie! Just returning the hello! With the right sewing machine I think anyone can sew! It took me three to find the right one to learn on! And now Im addicted! LOL

I have to say that on your main blogger page I love your "about me" with the cook, waitress, maid part! Definitely feel the same way!

So nice to meet you!
