On, Wisconsin!

Fall has officially come to Wisconsin. I'm lovin the cooler weather - not only can I leave the window open at night and snuggle down into the covers, but my allergies are finally easing up a bit!

I've not been working on as many projects around the house lately, simply because the Hubstinator has been replacing the windows on our three season porch and therefore its me with the boys while he works. The project is a little slow going with all the wet weather we've been having this week, but they look amazing so I'm willing to deal with it - pictures will be forthcoming, once the project is complete.

So for this week, my tackles were electronic - I finally got through most of my 600+ emails (most were junk, a lot were comments I had read but wanted to respond to). And in some of those emails were conversations with some newly found Wisconsin-based blogger friends.

What were we "talking" about? Well, we thought it would be kinda cool to form our own "Wisconsin Blogger's Network". So I did.

Right now, its just a blog - jump on over to check it out - but hopefully, with the help of my new found Cheesehead (and near Cheesehead, and Cheesehead-at-heart) friends, we can create a little community. Now, I don't have grand delusions of creating the next Blissfully Domestic (do you read? its great!) but some of us thought we could get to know each other, share stories, and eventually meet up!

If you are a Wisconsin Blogger and would like to join the community, grab the button for your blog! Add the blog to the list of those you are following, or add it in a reader. Leave a comment over there with the city or area of the state you live in and I'll add you to the site's blogroll.

I'm also looking for a few 'sconsinites to write a post or two. Leave a comment for me here if you're interested!

I look forward to meeting you!

I have to admit this is something I have been thinking of doing for several months now but I am relieved to see someone else jumped on in. :) I am more than willing to help out in any way. Am hoping we can have some meet ups. :)
