i'm late but i'm here!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Welcome to UBP Blogger #1146! I'm a tad late but that is not at all uncommon in my life! If I want to be anywhere on time I have to pretend it starts 15 minutes before it actually starts, then I can usually get there by the actual time it starts.

My former blog is Procrastination...and then some. I took a 6 month break a just started back up a few weeks ago, but I imported all my PATS posts.

Anyhoo, I'm an almost (13 more days) 25-yr-old with 2 beautiful kids and a cleany husband of 4.5 years. Cleanie + Messie = not so messy. I usually go by Ali Blogger but I'll let you in on a little secret and tell you my real name, which is...shhhhhhh...wait for it....Brooke. I refer to 5-yr-old son as Otter and 2-yr-old daughter as Raven. Otter is in remission from a rare case of epilepsy which is being treated with diet. Read his story here.

I'm from a very small town.
Nearest Wal-Mart: 1 hour away.
Nearest mall: 1.5 hours away.
Nearest Target: 3 hours away.
Needless to say, I do lots of shopping online. I love my small town but it would be nice to go out to Olive Garden (4 hours away) more than once a year.

I'm a TV addict.
Desperate Housewives
One Tree Hill
House (sometimes)
Grey's Anatomy
Private Practice
Army Wives
The Bachelor

I have my elementary teaching degree but I'm currently teaching preschool which I love a lot more than I thought I would.

Currently working on baby #3.

So go ahead and take a look around. I'm going to be having a giveaway coming up in the next few weeks so please come back. Thanks for stopping by and have fun at the party.

Thanks for stopping at my blog during your party-hopping! It's nice to "meet" ya!

OMGoodness... I don't think I could handle living 4 hours (!!!) from the closest Target! How do you do it, woman?!

WOW, we are about 30 min from any decent stores, I can't imagine HOURS! Nice to meet you at the blog party! We watch a lot of the same TV shows too, thankfully we have DVR so we don't miss them!

Glad I stumbled upon your blog through UBP! I'm sorry to hear that you're 3 hours from Target, as they are currently serving as my version of a crack addiction, but there's, so I know you'll survive...LOL. Great to e-meet you. Oh, and I've been affected by epilepsy (my BFF has it), and I'm happy to see that Otter's in remission; I'll keep your family in my prayers.

Good luck with #3-took me a good 3 years before we got ours. NOw we're working on #4. Sending you all the prayers you need so that this happens for you soon. AMen about the pregnancy tests-isn't it funny how much you spend on those when you are so anxious?
