I love meeting new bloggers and I especially love meeting local bloggers so I’m linking up with Kelly’s Korner today. That’s also why I’m singing bad American Idol songs, you know, on account of me being from Georgia and all that.
Fine, I just like that song a lot.
If you’re brand new to this blog, here are some random facts about me. If you’re not brand new to this blog, you should still read this because I need the validation. Just kidding, I don’t need the validation at all. I just enjoy it.
I am twenty eight years old. I will be 29 about a month from now which means there are only 30 some odd shopping days left until my birthday. I really enjoy people giving me presents, that’s a good way to become friends I always say.
Despite the fact that I am almost 29, I checked out the fifth book in The Princess Diaries series from our library on Tuesday. No one tell my husband about this. He is already mocking the stack of Beverly Lewis books on my nightstand because he finds humor in my love of good Amish fiction novels.
Related: does anyone have the third book in The Courting Of Nellie Fischer series to lend on their kindle? Because I really, really need to know if Caleb Yoder follows the Old Order or not, y’all.
Also related: I feel as though the librarian is scrutinizing my choice of books and judging me. Especially because I was all “HOW DO YOU NOT HAVE THE NEWEST VERONICA ROTH NOVEL?” and then I was like “And can you please point me to the Dr. Sears parenting books? Thanks.”
This post is actually more about my feelings on library books than it is about me. You can learn a lot about a person from their library books, though. Just ask my librarian.
I’m thinking about starting my own mom’s group because for some reason I haven’t been able to get into the last two I’ve emailed about after seeing them advertised in my local paper. I blame this on the fact that no one wants to befriend me for fear that I might write about them on the internet. Or else they read that post about my baby acting like a banshee at storytime. You’re killing me, internet. Also, now this post looks like a personal ad.
I am an aspiring writer, which is a fancy way of saying “I have a blog.” I prefer the fancy way of saying things and not just because I like to pretend I’m Princess Kate. But because everything sounds nicer when you say it fancy. Like when people come to my house and see the unfinished staircase and they’re all “what happened to your staircase?” I COULD tell them about how we had a baby unexpectedly in the middle of putting in new floors and that baby ended up in the NICU and cost a bajillion dollars but instead what I like to say is “Oh, we’re in the process of renovating.” Because that sounds like something someone on HGTV might say, maybe Sabrina Soto even.
I am incredibly passionate about a lot of things, like support for parents of premature babies. And slap bracelets. I think we should all bring back slap bracelets. Let’s just skip over this whole eighties-neon-acid wash trend and go right to the nineties and slap bracelets. I’m also passionate about family and faith and this sacred mission of motherhood, which, incidentally is the title of another book I am reading right now.
That’s enough about me. Let’s talk about you
