It’s Party Time! Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Note: this post is a sticky post. It will remain at the top until Friday, April 16. For newer posts, please scroll down.

Welcome to Sidetrack’d! For those of you visiting from the Ultimate Blog Party 2010, thanks for stopping by; I hope you will hang out for a bit.

Chez Sidetrack’d consists of myself, my husband, tech guru, and all around great guy, Matt, and my little people – Little (3.5 years old), Boo (2 years old), and Baby Girl (3 months old). What’s that you say? We have our hands full? Why, yes, we do; thanks for noticing. We lead a crazy, hectic, and fun-filled life of kids books, activities, and toys with a little Mom and Dad time thrown in when we can.

Sidetrack’d came into existence a little over 3 years ago as a way to journal, connect, and help Momma maintain the small thread of sanity she had at that point. (Said sanity was subsequently lost upon the arrival of Boo, but that’s another story.) Over the years I’ve come to claim blogging as a hobby and have met some great people through this crazy little medium.

I don’t have anything big and impressive to attract your attention, just the ongoing story of this average family of five. I write about my kids, my faith, just the day to day of life. I hope you’ll stick around, follow along, and maybe get a laugh or two from time to time.

If you’re interested in learning more about me, check out the Ten on Tuesday and Meme sections of the archives. You’ll gain interesting, obscure, and sometimes bizarre insight into my person and life.

If you like what you see around here, I’d love for you to subscribe via RSS feed, or follow sidetrack’d on Twitter.

This year I also have the pleasure of sponsoring one of the UBP ’10 prizes: a Sleepy Wrap baby carrier in the winner’s choice of in stock color! Check out my review and be sure to add prize number USC-61 to your list of preferred prizes.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon. Happy partying!

A big thanks to 5 Minutes for Mom for throwing this great party each year. And, of course, there is a chance to take home one of many fabulous prizes. If I am fortunate enough to be chosen for a prize, my top three picks are:

USC 17 – $200 Apple Gift certificate from CmomGo

71 – $50 Bear Bucks Card to Build A Bear Workshop from Liza Schwab

49 – $25 gift card to Starbucks from Janice Yurek

If those are already taken, I would be pleased with any of the following: any of the Amazon, Target, or Visa gift cards, 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 15, 16, 19, 22, 23, 30, 33, 39, 50, 53, 61, 62, 69, 70, 75, 77, 84, 85, 91, 101, 107, USC4, USC5, USC13, USC19, USC22, USC25, USC30, USC33, USC43, USC57, USC63

The Ultimate Blog Party has begun

Thoughtfully penned on March 2nd, 2007 and generally concerning Blogging News, Sidetrack'd, Ultimate Blog Party

To those of you who wandered over from 5 Minutes for Mom, welcome to my little corner of the world! For those of you who didn’t, you should hop over there and check out the Party.

Come in, take a look around, grab a bite to eat, and introduce yourself in the comments. The restroom is the door straight at the end of the hallway if you need it.

A bit about me…I am the wife of one wonderful web designer/developer, the mother of one 7 month old daughter (known around here as Little), a stay-at-home mom as of late July 2006. I am a Tennessee girl born and raised, and I have lived in each of the 3 very different areas of the state. I enjoy cooking, reading, baseball, and Spring. I would love to say that I’m the crafty type, but that would be misleading if not an outright lie. I enjoy learning and probably would have stayed in school forever if given the opportunity (and money). I love Jesus and want to glorify him in all I do.

I tend to be quite a random person which will lead to posts on pretty random topics. You can expect to see posts on my faith, on learning to be a mother, on sports (particularly the Red Sox, Braves, and UT Vols), on Little, and on the renovations to our house. There is really not much telling what else might show up, so you’ll have to check back often.

I’ve only been among the ranks of Mommy Bloggers for a couple of weeks now; there isn’t too much to see yet, but I do hope you enjoy the posts below. If you are interested in a week-by-week commentary on my pregnancy with Little, it is here for the viewing.:-)

I hope you enjoy the party and would love to see you again soon!
