Welcome! I'm so glad you're here at The Ultimate Blogging Party sponsored by 5 Minutes for Mom! I'm Diana, aka Forgetfulone. I'm 42, re-married for almost three years, and living near Houston. Let me introduce my children, 11 year old twins, Angela and David. They are ready to party, too! I also have a dear husband, two step-daughters (ages 15 and 19) and a step-son (age 27) who has 5 month old twin boys (which makes me a grandma by default - ha!).
I'm a teacher, but that doesn't define me. Who am I? (My kids would respond, "I don't know; I'm not your brain." Standard response around here when I can't remember what I'm looking for or where I put something! I think I am a fun person, even when there isn't something specifically fun to do.
I like to visit with friends, read, scrapbook, blog, watch movies, and I enjoy dining out, going to a show of some kind every now and then or a sporting event, and I am very active in my children's lives (piano, band, sports, etc.) I'm attending the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo next Tuesday to see Rascall Flats, my 11 year old daughter's favorite, and we are leaving for a six day trip to Disneyworld (the 11 year olds first time) on March 16th. So I AM VERY EXCITED!
Let me get you some refreshments. I can offer you a glass of water or a cold coca-cola (it's the real thing), my favorite drink. I don't drink many adult beverages, only socially, so I can offer you a choice of three things. You can have a screwdriver (orange juice and vodka) with a spash of grenadine, a Hpnotiq Martini (equal parts Hpnotiq liqueur and vodka with a splash of pineapple juice, shaken in ice), or a glass of red wine.
Come on in and take a look around my place. To the left, you'll see a poll I recently added, and you'll see a slideshow of my family. Read as many of my posts as you have time for. I love comments like everyone else! I enjoy writing, and I enjoy participating in memes. I've made some great blogging buddies, and I really want to make some new friends! Leave me a comment so I can visit your blog! Let's Get it Started in Here!
Then you can party-hop over to 5 Minutes for Mom for some more celebrations! Don't forget to post your Mr. Linky there, and check out the fabulous prizes they're offering! My top picks, although I wouldn't turn down ANY prize, are as follows:
