Ok, so I couldn't wait til Monday...

I was waaay to excited to wait until Monday before posting my "piece de resistance", & although it's not entirely done, & needs a bit of tweaking, consider this my Blog Coming Out post, if you will.
A lot of man hours have gone into this puppy, so I'm hoping she gives back as much as she took.
I'm also considering adding a tab on my "fetal stages" menu bar about blog design. Free buttons you can link to your site and all that good stuff. But to build that up to an eclectic selection will be a slow process but worth it.
I'm also putting serious consideration into another new venture from which some have never returned .... potty training. It's overdue, & lets face it. Nobody enjoys changing those nasty surprises, so it has to be done. And you'd think after 4 kids, I'd be a pro with my 5th, but truthfully, I'm nervous. This means she's not really a full 'toddler' anymore. My apron strings are loosened a little, & I hate the thought of that. I bet I'm one of those grandmothers who smothers their grandchildren with goodies trying to capture a small part of what I won't have at that stage. I hope not! But in all honesty - don't bet on me not too. :/

Also, as a side note - I won another giveaway!! I tell you what, this giveaway business has sure been lucrative for me, this makes number 8 or so!
This one was from Jessica over at Piece of Me blog, which has a layout that I really like, her button is to the right so go check out her fantastic giveaways as well.

Well, it's late (again) my husband has given up on even seeing me before he falls asleep these days, I NEED TO FINISH MY BLOG! But paitence is a virtue, or so they say.
My twitter link isn't up, & a few people have asked me about that, so my twit name is Malice, so feel free to follow me - I have cool tweets about other giveaways (soon, MY own!!) & pieces of random, useless information - but it's all decadent so worth a read ;)
Thanks for bearing with me during this construction phase, I'll have all my bells & whistes back soon enough, & we can 'ooh & ahh' together.

Also - if you feel so inclined - let me know ...
1: Why do you blog?
2: Have you met a 'Blog Snob'?
3: Favorite blog? (other than this one of course!)
4: If you had a chance to go visit the troops in Iraq - would you go?

Well, that's all folks - til next time.

Nice way to get your readers invloved, and good luck with the potty training. The after my last child was potty trained I wanted to throw a party with all the money I would not be spending on diapers.

Let me just tell you I love your blog title!!! Brilliant and so true! lol

As for blogging, I began my blog as a way to begin the conversation of what it means to be a true, authentic (Theta) Mom and can't believe how many amazing women I have met along the way...

And thanks so much for the follow from Follow Friday...I am having GFC issues and unable to sign in right now (it's me not you) soon as I can, I'll return the follow. At least I know where I can find you! Look forward to blogging with you!

Hi! Thanks so much for the Friday Follow. I am here to return the follow and check out your great blog. I really like your writing style and the cute little stick figures in your header.
Questions! Fun! I wanna answer them, so here goes:
Q. Why do you blog? A. It started out as a way to take advantage of those extra entries in blog giveaways, but has sorta turned into an addiction.
Q. Have you met a 'Blog Snob'? A. A couple of them. I won't name any names though.
Q. Favorite blog? A. Mine! Ok, seriously...There are many but one is The Review Broads.
Q. If you had a chance to go visit the troops in Iraq - would you go? A. Yes. I have friends and family there I would love to see.

Hello, hello! I am now a blog follower. Thanks for joining up with Friday Follow.

1: I blog to escape my daily grind.
2: I have not met a true 'Blog Snob' yet. Where can I find one?
3: Too many to pick on favorite blog, really!
4: If I could be beamed over to Iraq to visit, yes I would. I don't like long airplane rides though.

Yes potty training is never fun... plus even if you have done it before every kid is so different.

Good eveinng...
1. I blogged at first because Kim told me to do it. A good record she said. I know blog because I so love meeting all these new people. The ideas, the support, the kindness, the love. That's why I blog.
2. I don't know what a "blog snob is", I haven't met anyone to call that.
3. My favorite blog, there's just so many. I'll say Kim's because she started me out.
4. If I could get there by land, yes I would go there. I'd do anything for our soldiers.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Friday Follow is so terrific.

Take care. God Bless you and yours.

Thank you for the supper sweet comment you left over at my blog!

You know none of my nephews or niece actually were potty trained? I've always found that strange. One day in all of their lives they just decided they wanted to use the big potty. (My youngest nephew stopped wearing diapers before he was three!)

& boy do I love giveaways! All these bloggers & companies are so kind to offer such wonderful giveaways!

I like these questions!

1: Why do you blog?
I blog because I love it. I don't have a deep answer, but the one I gave is so true! :D

2: Have you met a 'Blog Snob'?
Actually I have never met a blog snob. They have all been so kind. I'm sure there are some out there, but I've never ran across them.

3: Favorite blog? (other than this one of course!)
Hmmm.. That's a hard one for me. I love so many!

4: If you had a chance to go visit the troops in Iraq - would you go?
Absolutely. They have all done so much for me, what's a little of my time for them?
