There's a Party in my Tummy, So Yummy, So Yummy!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

For those in know, I apologize for stealing from Yo Gabba Gabba. (I've got a 4 year old and 22 month old. 'Nuff said.)

Welcome to my Blog Party, courtesy of the fab people at 5MFM! Woo-hoo! Yeah! All-right, get down,...okay,...hmmm, phew. Now that we've got that out of our systems, how 'bout a brief intro? (Please, return the favor in the comments section!)

My name is Tina, pleasure to meet you. What do I do? Um, this and that, mostly that. I'm a SAHM, who occasionally lights up Web 2.0 with my brilliance. Oh - you haven't heard of me, or my blog? Huh. Well, I've got two wild and crazy kids, they keep me pretty busy, you know.

I occasionally post product reviews, some solicited, some ... not. I am currently a volunteer for waaaay too many things, lol. I also do some virtual admin work on an extremely part-time basis. (Thanks alot, bad economy!)

I'm a beginning Digi-Scrapper, which is soooo fun and soooo frustrating at the same time, and I'm a declutter and organize-your-life junkie. Not that I am any less cluttered or more organized, I just love reading about how to do it.
I listen to the blues (but have been known to reminisce with the all '90s music channel!) and read at an unholy rate of some six to eight novels per week. (I know that's a lot, but I read really fast. Like really, really fast.) I'm scary addicted to Rob Bell's podcasts, which I listen to on my Zune. And... oh, I'm sorry. You wanted to speak about yourself. Oh, ahem. Well, I do tend to go on...and on....

Intro's made? Excellent, let's get to the food! ('Cause that's my fave part of any party.)

Some of my best:

Buffalo Drumsticks (which I have recently renamed Hot Legs, sounds kinda, you know, sexy. Well, as sexy as chicken legs can really be.)

"Super" Chili Cheese Fries (which goes to show that I love cooking for Super Bowl...)

Balsamic Strawberries and Ice Cream (Sounds wired, but tastes completely amazing!)

World Class Pork Chops
(DH's total fave, I make this at least twice a month.)

If you've got some fun recipes, feel free to point me to them. I love trying out new stuff.

Now for the music....

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

I love parties, and I especially love parties with door-prizes! Here are my faves:

Uno: Prize # 58, The KitchenAid Stand Mixer (gorgeous!) from Moms Who Think.

Dos: Prize # 89, a $100 GC to HomeGoods, courtesy of HG Openhouse. (Um, so cool!)

Tres: Prize #53, The Signing Time Parent Success Kit from Signing Time. (We've been library borrowers for a couple of years, it'd be sooo nice to actually own one!)

Quatro: Prize # 40, The BocaBeth Grande Bag, courtesy of BocaBeth LLC

Also Prize #'s 106, 80, 83, 113, 96, 88, 15 & 81. Oh I want it all, why lie?

Wanna join in on the fun? Just head over to 5 Minutes For Mom's Ultimate Blog Party Page, get the button, banner and whatnot, write up your party post, add it to the appropriate Mr. Linky and attend as many other parties as you can handle! (And then go to ten more, lol!)

Awesome! Thanks for stopping by! Make sure to include your blog info if you'd like for me to come by your party!

    True, I'm a little scared of the balsamic strawberries, but I'm willing to try! :)

    Hey, Tina! Jen L. here from Hey Y'all. Love your blog! Can't wait to look at all your recipes. The Yo Gabba Gabba quote cracked me up. My husband and I wake each other up in the middle of the night to sing those songs.
    Happy blogging!

    I'm stopping by from the UBP. I'm newly into digi-scrapping too, and it's definitely a love/hate relationship! I'm trying to get it all figured out! It's great to "meet" you! Have a wonderful day!

    It is indeed a gorgeous home but it isn't mine. It's one from that I've fallen in love with.

    Hope you are enjoying the party...not that I know what to do but I'm meeting some wonderful people!

    Love the idea of hot legs! I'm so not a great cook. I love it when I do it but having the right stuff on hand is always a problem.

    That pork chop recipe sounds delish. I am always looking for a good way to do pork chops. I think they are kinda tricky, ya know?
