Ultimate Blog Party.....

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

I'm back from the er... Madison has an ear infection. She is feeling pretty good and is playing with her Barbie Vet with kitty and horse from my friend. I'm catching up with the blog. I'm excited to check out some other ladies blogs and see what you are all blogging about. A few night ago I was thinking that I would try to blog about cool kids gear and baby stuff. I haven't been blogging to long and right now I mostly write about family stuff to keep my parents updated on what is going on with the family.

A little bit about myself. My name is Stephanie and I have been married to my husband for seven years. I'm a stay at home mom and I enjoy taking care of my house and daughter. My daughter Madison is in kindergarten this year but only goes half days which keeps me busy since she is only in school for a couple hours a day. I'm currently 4 and a half months pregnant with my second child, a girl. My husband and I have not choose a name yet.

I currently live in SO Cal but am from a small town in Western Michigan. How did I end up in SO Cal? My husband is a navy man, he currently has 15 also 16 years in. We have moved quiet a few times and have at least one more move before we retire. Our dream is to settle down somewhere. We haven't decided where we will retire to but we would like a house with a little acreage. I would prefer an older house with lot of character, built-ins and hard wood floors.

Don't forget to check out the party, they have lots of great gifts. My top three are:
58 Kitchen Aid artisan Stand Mixer from
Moms Who Think

102 4-tier diaper cake from Lil' Baby Cakes

1 Gift certificate from Rocking Horse to Love

Other prizes I would love to win are: 15, 7, 27, 38, 8, 16, 19, 21, 22, 26, 50

Hi Stephanie,
Yes, Bunco.. seems like all military mommies play bunco. I like your dreams.. settling down.. a house, a garden. When we left the military 8 years ago, I could hardly imagine living in a place for more than 4 years, and here we are--almost 8! Now we are settled. It really does make a difference. But I will say this: the LORD is my strength today because of the faith I had to develop during those rough years. HE will get you through it. Thanks for coming to my blog.
