Not at Blissdom


I wish I were going.......
 Obviously, I didn't get to join all the girls (are there guys there too?) at Blissdom '11.  I guess I can put it on my wish list for next time because it looks like so much fun!

 Apparently, I am not the only one who is wishing she could have joined in the fun, check out Amanda's Not Going to Blissdom post yesterday. So, even though I didn't get to go this year, I am doing the next best thing (and what all the cool girls are doing..just sayin') by joining the No-Go Blissdom Blog Hop hosted by Danielle at Mom With a MiniVan and Ann Marie at Household 6 Diva for her Blizzard Blog Hop.

This way, I can link up with other "go less" bloggers and find new great reads and friends along the way! Part of Danielle's idea was to make it easier to get to know each other by answering 3 questions pertaining our blogs:

1. When did you start blogging and Why?
I started blogging almost 5 years ago.  I don't exactly know why I started but I think (it has been a while, ya know?) was that it was a way to journal.  Honestly, I don't remember putting much thought into it.   When I started my blog, I wouldn't even use the word "blog" because I thought it was so not me.  Somewhere along the line, though, obviously I succumbed to the word and the term blogger.


2. What is one thing you are going to do this week that is WAY cooler than going to BlogHer?
Uh, well...hmmm...give me a minute....Ok, Friday night I am going with a girlfriend and her children (2 of mine will be in tow as well) to try a new restaurant and eat ourselves silly. Who says calabash seafood isn't cool?

3. Share a post that you think says a lot about you or is your favorite.
This one is a hard one because the ones from the beginning of the blog are so different from later ones, as I have really changed as my life has changed and the season in which I find myself now is much different than where I was 5 years ago.  So, I am going to cheat a little here and leave you with 3 posts (one from recently and a couple of older ones).  Just so you can try to pick up my "vibe" ...doesn't that make me sound all cool and mysterious?

Looking Backwards (from last week and probably the truest to where I find myself these days!)
