Ultimate Blog Party 2011--Welcome!!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011 I am so super excited to be joining in the Ultimate Blog Party {hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom} for the second year in a row! WELCOME to Life with L & T, my little corner of the blogosphere, thanks so much for stopping by! I am "Eos Mom," so named because my son has Eosinophilic Esophagitis (basically food allergies) and Life with L&T is named for my kids. L is my 5-year-old son. He is super fantastic, but never listens to anything I say. T is my 2-year-old daughter. She is a ton of fun but definitely experiencing the Terrible Twos. She can throw a killer tantrum!
{My kids pouring weeds on their heads. Your kids do that too, right?}

I'm an average mom and I blog about everyday things:

-books I'm reading and movies I've seen

-my attempts at organizing and time-management

-sharing memories

-how we celebrate holidays

-Top Ten Tuesday, Works for me Wednesday, Things I Love Thursday, Five Question Friday

-the good, the bad and the ugly of life as an overwhelmed {What the heck am I doing?!} mom of 2

I blog for the fun of it and to join the conversation. I don't need 1000 followers (though that would ROCK), but I'd love to be part of a community of smaller bloggers who follow and support each other. So here are some facts about me--tell me in the comments what we have in common (or how we are different) so we can get to know each other.

-I've been married for 12 years to my law school sweetheart.

-I'm a SAHM.

-I love Target, Kohls, Kmart, Dollar Tree and bargains.

-I am not crafty, but wish I were.

-I am unable to either wink or whistle. :-(

-I am addicted to tv, though these days I'm behind on even my favorite shows.

-I love chick flicks and Sandra Bullock.

-L is allergic to corn, wheat, pineapple and peaches, and we avoid peanuts, just in case. So we do some gluten-free cooking.

-Speaking of, I hate to cook! But I do it anyway, cuz it's part of my job.

-I like to bake. Nothing fancy, though, I love to jazz up boxed mixes.

-I am addicted to chapstick, regular Coca-Cola, and reading mommy blogs. ;-)

-I'm a night owl. It pains me to go to bed before 11 most nights (I aspire to 10:30) but if I don't, oh those mornings are painful!

-{And also I am so not tech-savvy, I have tried 10 times to take out all these extra darn spaces to no avail. Please pardon my ugly. ;-) }

Okay, enough about me, go get back to the party. But before you go, leave me a comment and I promise I'll return your visit. Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy UBP!!!

Hey, so nice to meet you at the party! I'm a SAHM to 2 (3 and 1 1/2 year olds). I am thrifty, and love dollar stores and Target, too. I've been married almost 8 years to my college sweetheart, who I met in Taekwondo club. (He was the instructor...shhhh! Don't tell anyone...) I don't get to watch much t.v. anymore, but I TRY to catch my favorite each week, and I also love reading mom blogs! (And since we have so much in common, I'm following yours!)
Hope you get a chance to check out mine

Hi! I have a son and a daughter too...and I like to blog about books I've read, activities I do with my preschooler, and recipes I'm trying (I do like to cook...but I'm all about trying to find quick and healthy meals.) Nice to meet you!

Saying "hello" from UBP11.

C (Kid Things) said...

We seem to have quite a bit in common: chapstick, Target, SAHM, I hate cooking (though I think I dislike washing those stupid dishes worse), I have a son who's (almost, at the end of this month) 5 and a 2 year old daughter, too, along with my 7 year old son.

So nice to meet you through the UBP!

you have a beautiful family! I invite you to check out my blog when you have a chance!

Amanda said...

Found you on the UBP. I am also a SAHM to an almost 5 year old, 3 year old and 13 month old. All three of my children have food allergies. In our house we deal with multiple food allergies to milk, eggs, peanuts and tree nuts (along with molds and dogs). I am also addicted to tv, but last week to save money we got rid of our satellite tv so I am watching basic tv and shows on the internet.
