Ultimate Blog Party

Okay, I'm going to try this. Going on right now through 5 Minutes for Mom is this Ultimate Blog Party which is an attempt to get people to discover new blogs. Goodness knows I already have enough blogs on my Google Reader Subscriptions, but for some reason I keep adding to the list.

So I've added the button (down on the right), and then you can also choose from a list of prizes you'd like to win right here. I'd like to win, well, any of them really, but specifically USC 42, USC 43, and USC 13.

If you're interested in checking out some new blogs, join the party!

Oh, well looking around, and having people stop by here I guess I should introduce myself!

My name is Carole, I'm a 36 year old working Mom, just on the tail end of my year of maternity leave. I return to work as a disability claims adjustor in 3 weeks (boo hoo!). I've been married for 10 years, and have two amazing children (really, who doesn't think that of their kids?) a 3 year old boy who is obsessed with all things Thomas the Train and an almost 1 year old girl who has an attitude and gets into everything and loves to laugh. She's awesome.

My interests are in quilting, reading - almost anything if you put it in front of me and say it's a good book. However moreso historical fiction - like the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. I've also been known to read my fair share of fantasty fiction and some sci fi. I'm a geek. I stuggle with my weight like many people do.

We're currently in the process of selling our 3 bedroom townhouse in search for a bigger house and to move on up as it were. I've been blogging since um... I have no idea when. I had it in my head at one point that I was going to start a reviews and giveaways blog, but then life promptly got in the way, so that's on the hold for now.

Thanks for stopping by!!
