WELCOME to the Ultimate Blog Party 2011 on Mommy Miscellaneous! We participated last year and we had so much fun! We had such great posts, some giveaways and tons of fun meeting other bloggers who participated as well! The UBP is an annual blog party started by the beautiful twins at 5MinutesforMom.com! (Check them out and join the party too!)
Let's start with some basic information about me, for the new visitors to my blog!
My name is Kristin and I am a 26 year old single mom of two girls. Alayna is 5.5 and Olivia is 3, they're both terrors and blessings at the same time. Despite their craziness and my wanting to pull my hair out at times, my girls are my life. I always say; if my house was clean, it would be boring! My girls add (
a mess) and happiness to our house! Being a single mom definitely isn't easy, but I do my best. I try to learn from my mom, as she was a single mother as well. She raised me all on her own and because of that ( occasionally) we are like best friends. ( When we don't want to strangle each other.)
I work hard for my girls and have two jobs. I work as a Customer Service Professional for H&R Block as well as a personal shopper and customer service agent for Bluefly. I definitely love the jobs that I do and I wouldn't even dare to work a job that I didn't want to come to every morning! I also do freelance writing for a few companies and I am an artist. How do I have time to fit all that in and be a parent, you wonder? I wonder too. There are days I wonder why I'm absolutely exhausted...then I realize it's because I try to fit 100 hours into 24 hours. Soon, I'm also going to restart my Etsy business...then my sleep will be absolutely non existent.
Since I live 20 minutes out of Midtown Manhattan, I go to New York City a lot. Honestly, there is nothing to do in my small NJ town, so you really have to travel somewhere in order to get something to do! I love to go to Broadway shows, and have seen so many (multiple times) because of the fact that I live so close. I also love to shop, be a girl, I love fashion, music, and anything that is fun. I would try anything once. :) I also love to spend time with my girls and do "kid stuff" with them. That is probably my most favorite thing to do!! I love being a mommy!
Stay tuned for more UBP11 fun!!
