The party continues - about me

So somehow I missed that part of this whole online blog party thing is to introduce yourself.

I'm a 30-yr-old mother of two young boys from Milwaukee, WI (as if the last post didn't give that away). I work full time in the marketing department for a large company and have been with this company for more than five years. To say we lead a hectic lifestyle is to oversimplify things. My husband and I work different shifts to that we can be home with our boys. That means that we don't see much of each other, which is stressful, but still worth it. (We think. We're coming to the realization that we're putting a LOT of stress on our kids with this as well and we're rethinking the whole idea of both of us working full time.)

I take an insane amount of pictures and would love to get a nicer, more professional camera, but see the above...maybe sometime soon I'll be able to make more time to actually use it. I love TV. My idea of a great Christmas gift? The HD-TV my hubby and I bought each other two years ago. I love Netflix. I'm practical to the point that its a fault. I would love to have a cleaner house. I'm not a very creative cook - I make a meat, a starch and a veggie - but usually they're pretty good. I love to read and am blessed with a pretty closely knit extended family. I blog because I NEED connections to other Moms who go through the same trivial issues I do on a daily basis. I need that "I'm not alone" feeling.

So welcome to my party! Thanks for stopping by!
