Feeling left out (BlogHer)?

Come join the parties! If you don't know what BlogHer is----where have you been?!?! It's a big party held annually for women bloggers. It's in Chicago. This weekend. And I'm not there. Of the millions of bloggers out there, only 1500 or so are in Chicago this weekend. The rest of us are partying!

So far I've found:

Non Blogher Party


My friend Jenni's post is here: InfertilityMom

So, who am I? Good question. I'm Julie. I'm a Mom 2 Ways: by birth and by adoption. I turn 40 in a couple of months (and I'm having a big party!) I write about my faith, my family, my never ending struggle with weight, and I enjoy doing product reviews. I've been married to my sweetheart for 22 years. After years of infertility, I have 3 beautiful children: Chewie (11); Crunchy (6) and Munchie (4). I work full time and I blog for fun. You can read more about me here.

I will be posting some giveaways this evening (if I stop tweeting long enough!) and be sure to check back for my big 40th birthday bash where I have lots of cool prizes!

I love your cheery pink blog! I'm coming by from BlogHop. I have five little ones and I write reviews at Simply Sensational Divas Reviews and am starting a few at my own blog.

Hi, Julie! Love your kids nicknames... too cute!

I've struggled with weight as well and now I'm just doing my best to be happy with who I am. I love walking and do it, but pounds don't always come off. Oh well, I know I'm healthy at least!

It's great to meet you!

Have a blessed week...
Sallie

I've been seeing a lot of bloggers going giveaways and contests in honor of their upcoming birthdays. Seems like a really great idea. I may have to look into doing something of the sort since I have a milestone birthday coming up.
