It's A Nomal Occurrence, I'm Late for the Ultimate Blog Party

Hi, I am Desiree', the writer of this blog. I have two kids, one whom I homeschool and the other goes to a small Christian Montessori school. My husband is a preacher-man (My homey and I above). I work for a non-profit Christian organization from home. We live in Arkansas so you might be get some funny soundin' words on here like "push the buggy-instead of push the cart." Also, you will just about always get a Works for Me Wednesday by Rocks in my Dryer post as well as a post on Menu Plan Monday by Organizing Junkie from me. I love to find practical information that helps me in the things I do every day.

Interesting things about me:
  • I have a cardboard phobia (cannot hear the sound without my skin crawling)
  • I get up at 4:45 am 4 days a week to work out at the gym
  • I take a nap very regularly (I will not admit to how often), probably has something to do with the gym thing! :)
  • I am a thrifty girl, I will not buy anything unless it is on sale or clearance.
  • The things that make me sad and want to shout are mean people and people who are fakes.
So that's a little bit about me. I am so sorry I was late. Please excuse my delay. I will be posting about the Easter Egg Hunt that is beginning to consume me and to explain my tardiness.

Glad you popped in on this Ultimate Blog Party by 5 Minutes for Mom!

So glad you joined the party. I love the title of the blog and your introduction. My little girl and I refer to her dress up shoes as clap-clap shoes. Blessings to you, Angela

Nice you to meet you. Glad you joined the party. I am very envious that you get up so early to work out four days a week. Good for you.

It's nice to meet you ... I also joined the party late, but that makes us fashionable, right?!

I also get up everyday at 5 to go to the gym, so I know all about aking those afternoon naps!

Blessings!

Heidi said...

Love the title of your blog!
happy partying! :)
I get up at 4am 5 days a week...sadly, it's not to exercise. Most of the time i go right back to sleep! :)

lil ole' me..... said...

I had to stop by your blog...anything with the word "shoes" catches my attention!
I'd love to have your motivation for working out- I can barely get up at 5:45 for work! :)
Nice to meet you!!!

Genni said...

I didn't even make it to the party. Maybe I'll be extraordinarily late with a post later this week.

Just wanted to say I love your blog. Your list of favorite sites and books/catalogs are some of my very favorites, too.

Still hopping from blog to blog... my goal is to post at each blog at least once. Nice to meet you. Happy blogging!
