Ultimate Blog Party 2012 with Brain Foggles #UBP12

It’s time for the Ultimate Blog Party of 2012!

Ultimate Blog Party 2012
Welcome to Brain Foggles and get ready to party!

Ten Things About Me:

  1. I talk to myself out loud. And answer.
  2. Volunteering and making donations are important to me.
  3. My daughters are 12 years apart. My sister and I are 11 years apart. My husband and I are one year and 5 days apart, a few social security numbers apart and pretty much opposites.
  4. I forget everything unless I write it down, add it to three calendars and set an alarm clock.
  5. I love going to conferences just to meet new friends. I’ve been to a few including Disney Social Media Moms, so I wrote about how to get ready  and make the most of your time there.
  6. Chocolate is one of my favorite food groups. So is cake, cookies, potato chips, ice cream and fast food.
  7. I’m a cheap date. Just ask my husband.
  8. One of my favorite quotes is “If you are too busy to laugh. You are too busy.” – unknown
  9. I am a strong mother.
  10. My life is a jumbled, mixed up chaotic mess, but it’s always centered around my family.

  2. I am SO with you on writing everything down. 🙂 I do that too. People think I’m nuts with an alarm going off with my phone and a hand held planner with 100 sticky notes. I’m glad you understand. And my sister and I are 10 years apart. I totally get it.

  3. That is a lovely picture of you and all….but where is your smile my friend? You have a pretty smile 🙂

    Loved the video. LMFAO’s song always puts me in a good mood. And now that song is in my head…..

  15. I love the food groups – would love to see a pyramid of those so I make sure I’m eating the correct amount of each one! 🙂 I’m 42, have been married to a preacher for 20 years, and I have three daughters – 18, 15, & 5! Thanks for commenting on my blog and I look forward to catching up with you here! 🙂

  16. Love the picture! You and I have a lot in common then. I too talk to myself, forget everything and am a cheap date LOL.

  17. You had me at “I talk to myself out loud. And answer.” SO glad to know that I’m not the only person out there who does that. So far I’ve managed not to do it in public. I think.

    Love your blog and will be reading it regularly. Even though my child is only five, I think it’s never too early to get ready for tweens.

    The heart of my blog, Caterpickles, are the crazy questions my Five-Year-Old asks as she explores the world around her. When I’m not tracking down answers to her questions, I’m typing as fast as I can to document the funny stuff The Five-Year-Old says and the moments in which my parenting style totally breaks down. Lots of books get read and talked about too. Mostly on Thursdays.

    • Talking out loud in public is even better. I may start doing that now that you’ve mentioned it. Maybe I’ll get taken away and get some time off! Five year olds are the best – all smiles, wanting to hold mamma’s hand and making macaroni crafts. Enjoy it!

  18. Hey Connie! Great site! Thanks for stopping by to see me, too! Have a great party week!

  19. Like what you’re doing here. I complain about the kids a lot and make snarky comments about my husband on my blog. I think we’d get along swell.

  20. Hi there! Stopping by from UBP12 and Kaye @ SandwichInk! I can totally relate with having to write everything down! With my busy life, I don’t trust my brain to remember everything!! 🙂

  21. I love your sense of humor! And I find that I am having full conversations with myself more and more… No wonder I’ve been following your blog since last year’s party!!

  22. Hello Connie, Stopping by to say hello from the UBP12. Hope you’re having a great time this week!! I will have to say chocolate is also one of my favorite food groups as well LOL!!!!

  23. I love that photo of you. I wouldn’t have pegged you for someone who forgets things!

    • Thus the name of my blog, Brain Foggles which is a play on the word brain fog. And I sure do have it. Nice to know that I don’t come off as scattered as I really am!

  24. Hi Connie! It’s your party and you can do what you want so … what shall we do?!? Happy UBP12!!
