D-listed Blog Party 2010

A few weeks ago I became a member of the d-list.  This is a place where little blogs can play with other little blogs.  If you haven't joined, you should.  It's a great way to meet other mommy bloggers, and actually interact with them.  They feature 5 bloggers a week (I'm still waiting for my turn) and it's a great way to get to know other bloggers. This week they are sponsoring a blog hop, so get on over there and check it out.


If you are new to my blog, welcome, click around awhile and get comfortable.  If you've been here before, welcome home!

My name is Carol, my family and close friends call me Carol Ann, that's my given name.  Go ahead with the poltergeist jokes.  I'm use to it and I don't mind.  Nothing makes me feel better than when someone calls me by my full name, it reminds me of my daddy and my childhood, I get all swoon-y.

I am momma to two little girls who keep me very busy and spread very thin.  If you want to see how much they look alike, go here.  I work part-time in the engineering industry.  One day I'll write about the melt-down that occurred in my life which made that idea a reality.  It wasn't pretty.  But, this works for me, and it allows me to participate in my kids' activities and get errands done during the week, so we can enjoy the weekend as a family. 

I married my college sweetheart in December 2002.  We honeymooned in Maui, and it still blows my mind that I didn't have a digital camera at that time....man, was it that long ago?  Hubs used to play professional ball, one day I'll write about it.  We moved for spring training in 2003 and ended up buying a house and we're still here.  This blog was created so I could share stories and pictures with my family and friends while living so far away.  You can blame aol for the fact that you are reading this.  If they wouldn't have changed their picture sharing technology I would still be emailing pics to my entire address book, instead of writing and posting them here.

My blog is new, I'm just getting swinging and am enjoying the fellowship with other bloggers.

Here are a few posts that I enjoyed writing:

About the time we moved:  This is the house

The HeShe Story.  This is a 2 part series, click around to find the conclusion:  HeShe

About how parents compare pre-schools to the point of ugliness:  My Preschool is better than yours

And for a laugh, the time the hubs nearly killed the baby with yoga:  He Yoga'd Her

Please leave a comment so that I know where to find you.  Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you make it a habit!

Hey Carol! I didn't get around to reading the yoga story when I checked out your blog the other day, so I read it this time. I can't tell you how many of those kind of stories I have where everything happened so quick, but yet you still feel like you could have done something to prevent it. And then after all is said and done and everyone is fine, you realize it wasn't near as bad as you thought.

Glad to see you as part of the D-List party! Have a great week!

I wish I could take pictures like you can. Sigh.

I have to settle for blurry shots of my child because she's too fast for my camera. :(

Beautiful pics.

Erica K said...

hello found you on d-listed.

LOl at the no digital camera in 2002. I so hear ya. Times seem to change so fast yet not so fast. kind of weird.


Gretchen said...

Your girls are adorable! I am pregnant right now (due in October with a surprise). I think it is a boy, but am obsessed with buying girl clothes.

Partying my way through the D-List today. LOVED the yoga story. I was being goofy and booty-danced my 2 year old right down the steps not too long ago. These things happen.

On a side note, I cracked up at the Carol Ann/Poltergeist thing. When we told my MIL we were naming our daughter Reagan, she responded,"Like from The Exorcist?!?" Um, no. :)

Joanna said...

Found you through the D-List! Beautiful girls! I'm gonna go read your yoga story now!

Alissa said...

I so remember the days of when you did not know if you had gotten a good picture or not and when you went to get them developed you worried if you would actually have any good ones! And...now I have a 5 megapixel camera on my fricken phone! Oh how times change.

Anyway, thanks so much for partying with me. It looks like a few people joined the D-list because of you, so THANKS for that!
