2010 Ultimate Blog Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Party! I love parties. My definition of party has changed quite a bit since 1. becoming older and 2. becoming a mom. Pre-baby, my idea of a party was beer, music, a warm summer night and more beer. Now my idea of a party is getting someone to watch the babe, arriving a little late, having one beer, TWO at the most (I’m an effing lightweight now) and then stressing about when we should leave to get the baby.

Actually, I haven’t BEEN to a party yet since we had the little one so that’s just my guess as to how it’d go.

Ok enough rambling. Ultimate Blog Party! There is fun, friendliness and PRIZES. Yup. PRIZES.

If this is your first visit, HELLO AND WELCOME! This is me:

Miraculously, I HAVE MAKEUP ON.

This is my husband:


And this is our 11 week old, Nellie Rose:

Why the name Hope Springs Eternal? Well, in December of 2007 we lost out first baby to miscarriage at 7 weeks. We were devastated and I started this blog as a place to vent my feelings and frustrations where no one knew me. I slowly let a few people in on the blog and by the time June of 2008 rolled around we were trying to conceive again. I had hope that things would be okay, and the old saying, “hope springs eternal” just popped into my head. I didn’t anticipate really ever going anywhere with this blog.. I slowly got more followers. After almost a year, I still wasn’t pregnant and decided to throw in the TTC Towel.
On May 9th, 2009 this happened and our lives changed forever.
We welcomed Nellie Rose into our lives on January 20th, 2010 at 4:15 PM.
Motherhood isn’t always easy. But it is beautiful, breathtaking, and the greatest job I’ve ever had the honor to have.

Outside of my life as a mom, I also love to sing in my barbershop chorus + quartet, quote movies, say the “F” word a lot and read Sookie Stackhouse books. Music is a huge gigantic chunk of my soul and I share some of my favorites here on my blog every Monday with my new Monday Melodies feature.
