WELCOME TO THE PARTY

This is my second year to attend the Ultimate Blog Party

I LOVE IT and love meeting new friends….it is not too late for you to join in.  This year I am giving one of my famous CARD BOXES and to make it more FUN, I am going to give another one away to a lucky visitor on either of my blogs.
All you have to do is leave a comment.  I promise I will try and visit every blog…
My name is Teresa. I am a wife of 37 years to Jack, a Mom to Greg and Amanda, a Mother-in LOVE to Micah and Dana, and best of all a GRAMMY to Parker, Jack, Austin and Grayson. If you like family stories this blog might be for you.  I try and document everything, as we do this thing called LIFE together.
I have been a  business owner for 20 years. I own a gift basket business and a Christmas/Holiday decorating service.  I am known as the “tree lady”!  I have another blog that details this with pictures…
A BABY CHANGES EVERYTHING
a Baby
the title taken from our life story and from the wonderful song that Faith Hill sings.
I have blogged for 2 years, If you had told me two years ago that I would have written 375 posts and have 1400 followers, I would have said you must have me mixed up with someone else.  I thought my first post would be my last….I have met the nicest people ever.  We had a medical crisis in our family this past year and bloggers came out of the wood work to see if I was OK.  Calls, texts, comments…totally blew me away. 
I love little’s (especially mine), ALL THINGS DISNEY…(I am a good friend of THE MOUSE), coffee, football, American Idol, massages, travel with all the family.  I love a good book, love to sleep late, love diet coke, love Christmas, Tim McGraw, Brett Favre (sorry), mystic tans, great hotels and great sheets,my Keurig, TiVo (how did we ever live with out it), magazines, Beth Moore Bible studies, hot baths, rainy days, pajama days (today was one),the smell of lavender, fresh flowers, a good movie.  SO SURELY we have something in common.
                  
These are they people I party with the MOST…..Sweet Buds
Boys
Austin and Grayson
amanda and Jack
So happy that you stopped by.  Please come back often.  Besides some funny stories, I have lots of giveaways. I love to GIVE. Hope you will stop by my holiday blog.  For the next month on my holiday blog, I am going to put the spotlight on other blogs.  If you would like yours featured, leave me a note in the comments. 
Have fun at the party!

Hi sweet friend!

We've been at our time share in Palm Desert for two weeks, so I haven't been on the computer much at all...very unlike me! We're actually in LA tonight and will fly home early tomorrow morning.

I'm letting George watch sports on tv so I can catch up on my blog reading! LOL I've had fun catching up with you this afternoon.

I'm so proud to call you my friend. I love visiting your blogs. You are right...you are a GIVER! Love you girlfriend!

Hugs,
Kat

Enjoy your day my friend, HUGS!

Hi Teresa...it's Linda again. I think it is neat that you do gift baskets as a part of your Holiday Tree Trimming. I have always enjoyed doing gift baskets. And they can be done for any occassion. I just do them for family and friends...and it is fun. You are so talented...and I enjoy your blog and your sense of humor. And as a Grandma myself, I enjoy your intense love for your grandkids!

Have a great weekend.

Suzi Banks Baum said...

WOW, we surely have a few things in common, but first I must tell you how inspiring you are! I have been with my husband for 20 years and I am always impressed by long term relationships. My parents did not last more than 15 or so years, which was effective, but not a great model, so unhappy. I am thrilled to see how much you enjoy your family. I look forward to reading more of your blogs!
And, if you'd ever like to feature my blog, you know where to find me!
Love, Suzi

Katrina @ They All Call Me Mom said...

Hi there! Thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog. Those are some precious faces in those photos! You party with some pretty amazing people :)
I started blogging just a few years ago and never thought it would turn into something that I love so much, either! When I first started my blog, I seriously thought it was sort of an online journal. I had no idea that people could read it other than me! I know, how ignorant was I? LOL Then one day, I got a comment on one of my posts...and I was like, "What? People can READ what I write?" It was a trip. Recently I've started the blog hopping thing, and I've met so many wonderful bloggers. I learn so much from everyone. I just could go on and on...I love it so much. I blog about my family, my LARGE family of nine children! The craziness of it all, the chaos, the love...the beauty of children and motherhood. The sorrows of loss (miscarriage) and the joys of marriage and commitment. Anyway, I'd love to be featured on your blog one day, sure! That would be fun :)

I'm your newest follower....and now I'm off to check out your other blog :)

Hi sweet friend!

Gosh, it seems like FOREVER since I've had time to just read blogs and enjoy myself. Between our two weeks in California and then having two grandsons here for Spring Break, I seem to have gotten myself behind. Not anymore though. I'm BAAAACK!

Much love and big hugs,
