I came *this* close to missing it! 5 Minutes for Moms annual blog party! It's a great opportunity to meet fellow bloggers, reconnect with old ones and win fabulous prizes! Check out the list of prizes to be given away!*
You know what else is great about this party? You don't have to get all decked out! Just come (errr....STAY) as you are! ;)
So let's get started! Here's a short introduction about me....
My name is Sharon and I am a stay at home mom of two little girls, Kailani (7) and Momo (3). While my degree is in education this is where I need and want to be - at home with my kids until my youngest starts school However, as many of you know, motherhood/parenting can have it's challenging moments hence the title of my blog. ;)
I turned 40 this year - so yes, I am an "older" mom. But you know what? I'm totally okay with it! Something amazing has happened over the last several months...I've really started to figure out who I am. Sounds so "cliche-ish", I know, but it's true. While I have been healthier, happier, thinner, etc. I am way more confident than I have ever been. Go figure. Go me!
Last year we moved back to our home state of Hawaii after a three year absence. We are thrilled to be back! The weather, the people, the beaches, the food, the culture, the music....need I say more? We try our best to take advantage of living in this beautiful state - but when we are not out and about I enjoy sewing, doing crafts with the kids, cooking and then blogging about it (when I have a free minute!):
- Motherhood - when my oldest cut her hair and ALL of her baby sister's hair!
- Cooking - broiled sushi recipe. I have more hits on my blog for this recipe than anything else!
- Sewing - roll-up car mat, doll diapers, dresses
- Kid's crafts
- Living in Hawaii
Now what about YOU? If you've linked up with the UBP2010 hopefully I'll find out! Pass the pillow and let the party begin!
*By the way, here is my wish list: the grand prize (a Toshiba LAPTOP), and numbers 6, 7, 8, 11, 15, 16, 19, 20, 29, 31, 32, 48, 49, 53, 58, 69, 71, 84.....Holy Cow. There are so much more! Hopefully I'll win SOMETHING! :)
