We're going to Party like its 1999

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Oh yeah, partying like it's 1999 actually does fit for me. See, that was pre-kids, and I did do my share of partying then. But shhh, don't tell anyone, wouldn't want to ruin my rep!

But these days, partying tends to hold a whole new meaning. It usually involves means family birthday parties with heards of children. And if I'm the hostess, it means a whole lot of anxiety and stress. It means over buying food for fear of running out (and YES it is a well founded fear, it did happen once). It means cleaning until I drop and then hiding whatevers left so I can never find it again, until I buy a new one!

But this week I'm partying, I'm mingling, I'm making new friends sans all the worry. Even though this party already includes an invite list over 300, I have no worries about how they'll all fit in my tiny little house. I won't need to clean OR buy a new outfit. Of course, I'll probably still will lose some serious sleep...because I will be reading a TON of new blogs!!!!!!

I hope you'll join me at the party, you can meet some great new bloggin' buddies AND maybe even win some cool prizes!
Ok so as much as I'm on my 6 year old about reading and following directions on his homework, you'd think I might do the same...but apparently I didn't. So better late than never, right? Here's my intro for those who're stopping by from UBP (or anywhere really) for the first time.
I'm Lisa. I'm a full time (usually) working mom of three boys. My boys are 6,5 and 1 and are the cutest things ever! LOL Ok really I am biased but I do see the beauty in lots of kids, especially the ones I photograph. Which is slowly but surely becoming my third full time job(being a mom and working as an office manager full time are my first 2).
In addition to running the house, not that I do it very well, and working and the photography, I also love to volunteer. I tend to over extend myself, once in a while! (Oh did I mention I'm also a 'tad' sarcastic?) But my main volunteer projects are church and the American Cancer Society. At church, I've been known to go a little bit of everything. For ACS, I have been involved with Relay For Life. We've had teams for 4 out of the last 5 years, in honor of my mom who is currently battling with cancer for the third time and slowly losing the fight this time.
Prekids I was a country concert and sports event attending girl. Now I'm a Jonah Brothers listening, TBall watching momma! But I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Thanks for stopping by be sure to leave me a comment and I'll be sure to stop by and do the same for you!!!
