Kick off your shoes and stay awhile.

Hey, guys. I'm glad that you could make it to my little corner of the Ultimate Blog Party, and I'm sorry that I'm not better prepared for you. I'm getting ready for guests that I can touch who are coming to my house tonight, and have been trying to find time all day to write a proper greeting for you. I finally gave up and decided to be myself.

My name is Lori and I am a total Texan who loves God and my family. Big Daddy and I have been married for ten years, and we have three wonderful daughters who are 3, 5 and 7. I work at home, do some babysitting, and listen to Scooter talk all day long.

I'm a little scatterbrained, but believe it or not I really try to be organized. When I succeed, it is a beautiful thing. When I don't, it's just my life.

So, please look around and leave a note to let me know you were here. I can't wait to visit you back! And be sure and check back in a day or two. I'm usually a little more entertaining.

Hey!
I enjoyed seeing your cute girls and visiting your blog. I have six kiddos and am also managing to (mostly) hang onto my sanity.

Enjoy the party!

Just randomly hit your blog today and I enjoy reading it. A lot of the things you say remind me of the phone calls I get from my wife who's at home with our 3, 5, 7 year olds.

I admire mothers...working with the kids day in and day out is very rewarding, but also difficult. Keep up the good work. :)

Well, thank you for the warm welcome. And may I say--being yourself is really perfect! I'm leaving with a smile and plans to come back throughout the Party week--you do the same.....come on over to my place for a visit. It's nice to "meet you!"

I'm so happy that you decided to be yourself. That's the only way to be.
What type of work do you do? I've been working from home for the last 4 years. And love it.
Happy Partying.

I was born and raised in Fort Worth and lived there all of my life until six years ago when I moved with my husband to Virginia. I miss Fort Worth, but honestly, I wouldn't trade the East Coast for anything (well, unless God said to!).

It's nice to meet you, I'll check in again.

Warmly,
Kim

If you feel scatterbrained you should come and check out some of my stories!! The best line of your post was this really did happen...just now...to me...

I had to stop by because I saw your name on the Blog Party site and was relieved to know that someone else shares my laundry woes! I can't wait to read more. Stop by and see me if you have a chance - after the real life party guests leave and you can kick off your shoes and relax a while!

Welcome to the party!! It is nice to meet you. Your girls are cute. I can totally relate to the scatterbrained and unorganized portion of this blog. When I try it is beautiful...I just need more time to attempt it! I do not have any kiddos yet but one day, I would love to have a house full of girls!!

Being yourself is the best way to be.
My husband and I also have three girls. They are the joy and consternation of our lives.
We have contending Drama Queens, who regularly pull out all the stops.
Stop by and get to know me. I am from Idaho, so Texas seems a long way away.
