Today Is My Day, Hooray, Horray!

Oh my gosh, it is FINALLY here. For those who know what I'm talking about, WELCOME, LADIES! For everyone else, if you've ever wondered what the pretty pink SITS badge is, wonder no longer, for today is my own personal SITS Day!



What's SITS? It's a group of 10,000+ lady bloggers and mama bloggers dedicated to supporting one another by reading and leaving comments. It's a big deal to me because it's a great way to meet new friends! Seriously, I have connected with tons of cool people via this one website. Wow, right?

And today is my day to shine, at SITS and here! I'm practically famous!

Er, the only problem? I don't actually feel famous... there's a big part of me in my head that is whispering how much I DON'T deserve this. I guess all I can do is introduce myself and, in the process, try to convince myself how much I really DO deserve this! Read on to find out more about me, my family, what I do, and what makes me stand out. 

Even if it's just a little bit.

how babby formed


First (and I suppose foremost) I'm the mama to the Babby and the wife to the BabbyDaddy. You can actually read my birth story here - I thought it was pretty exciting, anyway - and see a photo progression of the last two years. I feel like it's been a long journey AND a lightning fast ride!

premature birth


I guess I'm also a "working mom," and I have some strong opinions about that, though they may not be what you think. I really, really wish I could be a SAHM, but it looks like the best I'll do is going back to being a WAHM, which is how I started out. One of these days I'm going to get my company off the ground! (Or at least get my website 100% finished.) Once upon a time, I wrote a book, which you can see in the sidebar. Definitely check it out if you're engaged! ----->

Part of my time is spent making stuff. Or trying to make stuff or modding stuff. Or hanging out on Pinterest looking at all the stuff I could be making but don't have time to make! I'm super envious of all of the talented crafters out there who just whip up whatever pops into their heads!

Hmmm, what else? I love to exercise - demented, I know. I like to play around with how my house looks, though I wouldn't say I'm much good at decorating. I just plain don't like cooking, and if I didn't have to eat I probably would skip it. I love writing. I use this blog as an outlet for wanting to write but being too tired to come up with fiction and too lazy busy to try to submit actual articles to actual publications. I use it to keep in touch. I use it to share my joys and my sorrows...

coping with miscarriage


And of course, I use it to connect with other great women and mamas, like the ladies in my various blogrolls. We don't always share the same opinions or ideas or politics, but I think that's A-OK! It wouldn't be a very fun or interesting Internet if everyone I encountered was just like me, all the time! (So when necessary, let's agree to disagree.)

That's me in a nutshell, gals! 

Hope you enjoy what you read, follow me and I'll follow you back, enter my current giveaway *pretty please*, and like I try to say on SITS every time I check in for roll call, have a beautiful day! xoxo

P.S. - WOW! It's only 11 a.m. and I just CANNOT believe how much sweet comment love I've already gotten. Blogger is crap for letting me respond to comments, but you've all been so nice :) What a great day!! Rest assured I will be busting my tush in the next few days visiting you and following you and commenting! 

I know how is babby formed

  4. I found you on SITS and I've poking around through some of your past posts. I really appreciate your honesty in discussing miscarriage. Everyone told me not to share the news of pregnancy until at least 12 weeks, because I wouldn't want to have to tell people if I miscarried. I don't get that at all. Why would I want to go through the pain of miscarriage without the support of family, friends, and co-workers. My first pregnancy ended in miscarriage, and had my loved ones not known, I think that the depression that followed would have been much, much worse. I wish everyone would speak so openly about it, the way you do. Thanks! I'm glad to be a new follower.

  24. Happy SITS Day Christa! Cute owl pillow! I've enjoyed reading your blog. I went back to work after my first and was so miserable that I got my company to let me telecommute for the next 4 years until I had my second and quit when she was 9 months old. I wish you the best in becoming a full-time SAHM! :) -Caren with a "C" PreservingHomeBasics.com

  42. Happy Happy...I love that you cover all these wonderful topics and you have a bit of a wanderlust which I can identify with...so many things you want to do, but so little time and cramped by what we kind of have to do, to surive and all, and what we really want to do! I too have had preemies so we deal with some of the things you chat about and probably will deal with some of the things you chat about. I look forward to reading more and glad SITS is featuring you as our paths may not have crossed but I am happy they did!Hope today is 'yournrewfavoriteday!'
