Ultimate Blog Party 2009!!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Hi there, welcome to my blog! If you arrived here via the Ultimate Blog Party then pull up a seat and chat. If not, then go see what this is all about at 5 Minutes for Mom and then get your butt back here lol!

The Ultimate Blog Party is all about getting to know each other and have a great time. There are also some really great prizes you can win. There are hundreds of them. Some of my favorites are the Kitchen-Aid Artisan Stand Mixer, Ergo Baby Carrier, and a 4 Tier Diaper Cake from Lil' Baby Cakes (for my pg sister). I also like prizes 45, 27, 19, 21, 22, 26, 91, and USCs 35 and 56. Half of those are Target gift cards lol.

Anyway, enough about that, here's a little bit about me:
My name is Kara. I'm a stay-at-home mom to 3 little boys- Jason, 4.5yrs; Jacob, almost 3; and Nathan, 4 months. They are just adorable. Some days Jason and Jacob drive me insane, but I love them to death. My boys are the light of my life. I also have an awesome husband, Nate. He is hardworking and loving. We met at college when I was 19 and were married 9 months later. We've been married 5.5 wonderful years.

My blog is just random stuff about my daily life, stuff I think about, and my cute boys.

I enjoy reading, blogging, making my kids laugh, and eating junk food. Usually all at the same time. ;)

Some of my recent reads are the Twilight series (for the 5th time!) by Stephenie Meyer, the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan, The Eyes of Darkness by Dean Koontz, and The Road by Cormac McCarthy. My tastes vary quite a bit from historical fiction, to suspense, to fantasy, and more. I have always loved to read. If you have read anything good lately, let me know, I'm always looking for something new!

I'm currently listening to music by the Twilight Music Girls, a group that an old high school friend of mine is in that writes and sings songs inspired by Twilight as well as covers for songs by other great artists like Muse. They are actually playing at a Twilight DVD Release Party at Hot Topic in LA tonight! Too bad I live a bit too far away to go. Click the the little playlist box in my right sidebar to hear some of their amazing work.

You can see some of my favorite bloggers in my right sidebar, and view my profile to see my other blogs, including some cute pictures of my little boys.

Now, I'm going to grab me a yummy double chocolate brownie and visit some more bloggers! Leave me a comment and say hi and I will come by to visit during the week!
