Ultimate Blog Party 2009!!!

Woo-hoo! Who doesn't love a party?

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Welcome to The Bird's Nest. :)
I'm Sharon & I started this blog in 2005. It quickly became an outlet for me, and I've come to value & treasure the friends I've made through blogging.

A little about me....
I love chocolate. And avocados, but usually not together.
I consider my formula for success to be a combination of Weight Watchers, Motivated Moms, Power Walking, and blogging.

I have been married to my college sweetheart for almost 6 years. We have 2 little boys, often referred to as toe-heads.My oldest will be 5 next month, and he starts kindergarten in the fall. Ah!!!! It took me 15 minutes just to leave the parking lot his 1st day of preschool!

My other son will be 2 next month. He is feisty and moves non-stop. He's not much of "baby" any more, and I'm getting some mild baby fever.

3 kids is not the definition of a large family for me. I am the youngest of 8, and yes, we all have the same mom & dad. My parents are going on 50 years of marriage. I think that's amazing.

I have my Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education, having taught 1st grade for 2 years before my oldest was born. I've stayed home with him since, working part-time jobs here or there.
I think my boys do a pretty successful job of driving me crazy, but I love them and they are my world!

I also love to travel, dancing, going to the movies, and gosh...this feels like some online dating profile. Ha!
My favorite countries (that I've actually been to) are Ireland and Prague. I want to go back some day. I'd also love to travel to New Zealand And Greenland.

Corny jokes are a favorite, I love the DVR (CSI: NY!), menu planning, and I dream of being organized. And a consistent size 6. I dream of sleep, too.

I hope you surf around and find some posts worth your visit! Thanks for stopping by. :)
I look forward to meeting more fellow bloggers. Leave me a comment and I'll be sure to visit you, too!

Oops! I forgot to add in my top 3 prize choices, if I won something.
I'd love:
Target gift card
Core Fitness DVD
Paperlicious gift certificate
How about you?

Add me to the "love the DVR" crowd. I've found we watch better TV with it. And we don't program our lives around our shows.
