Blog Party 2010!! What a great restart! (again)

So here I find myself once again aimlessly wandering back into this bloggy world to try for a third time. Let’s start again and see if I can keep at it only ‘cuz third times the charm right?? So as I’m meandering around a few of my favorite blogs and begin to see a reoccurring post from yesterday. Now I’ve been wondering where I can find some tips, or tricks, advice or what have you on how it is these blogger ladies (and men) find something to write about everyday. How is it that by chance, or miracle rather, I come across……


I mean what are the chances!! Now I get to see/meet hundreds, probably over a thousand bloggers all in one place. Has to be a miracle right? So come on over join the party click the banner above, or in the side bar, don’t be shy!! There are some awesome prizes to be won too!!


Watch your step as you come in the dogs will surely trip you or at least maul you with kisses.

Now that you have been officially welcomed to our home, dog slobber and all. My name is Sammi. I’m a small town northern country gal, living in the same Nowhere Ville town I grew up in. I was married on 07/07/07 to a wonderful man on the beautiful sunset shore of Torch Lake. Which is the Somewhere Ville he is from. (It’s only somewhere instead of nowhere because of that tourist trap lake) Now how I convinced him to move to Nowhere Ville with me I may never know. Now I love my hubby but the best part of gaining a best friend in him, was that the hubby came a packaged deal. Not only did I get him but also two for one special, of twin girls.

I introduce you to the one and only Toughie in pink, and miss QueenB in blue. Now they have adapted to country life the best as you can see they don’t go anywhere, not even egg hunting, without their S**t kicker, I mean rain boots on.

Plus with their daddy being a Fire/EMS addict I think its already rubbing off. I’m not sure who jumps more when the pager goes off daddy or them.


Which now is even worse only because the hubby convinced me to take an EMT class with him. Now in the beginning when he drug me to class kicking and screaming convinced me to take the class with him, I was rather hesitant. However now its only one more test to go and it will be a fight and a race for the first to be out that front door. Plus he knows that I don’t think twice about fighting dirty racing him out the door.

For the most part I am a caffeine, chocolate, crafting, social site addict. However we do love to be outside too, when its not 40 below!! For example just the other day at my sisters house who by the way claims, on most occasions, the other three kids in the previous fire gang picture, we had a great time teaching her hubby a lesson.


Don’t bring home pieces to hunting blinds to only sit in the yard. We will build/put them back together only for the kids to use as a fort of course. (notice the boots again) We aren’t afraid to get dirty, filthy, down right grungy for the sake of a good day of fun.

Now when I’m not curbing an addiction, or chasing kids, I also have my own business I work from home called Motivated Mom’s.


I love the fact I pick my own schedule, that I completely run my business from home, and have the pleasure of talking to mom’s from all across the USA and Canada. Such a dream job that has been a heaven sent to become my reality, and I’m loving every minute of it.

Now as I said in the beginning I’m trying to get my blog going. I’m working on a fan page on Facebook as well as a separate Twitter account for the blog. I’m hoping to get everything semi straightened out and in order soon. I’d love for you to follow and fan them both, as well as grab my button and show some LOVE!! I’ll definitely return the favor!!

****Now as for the prizes, there are a ton to choose from at the UBP so here are my top three...

** Of course the Grand Prize, who wouldn't want it!! A Toshiba Satellite. **

Then next is the Be My Guest Certificate ($250 value) for a 2 night stay for a family of 4 at any Hilton Garden Inn Courtesy of Bloggin2Noggin.

Then third Id love LOVE a Customn Blog Design for my blog!! To awesome it's provided by StartRankingNow.

Now if by chance those three are taken I would like any of the following in order... US-11, US-95, US-105, USC-13, INTL-14, INTL-11, US-98, USC-35, USC-39.

However if all those are taken I'll gladly have any other blog, giftcard, or girly kid stuff as I have the twin 4 year old girls. Hope you all come visit and party with us too.****

Look forward to meeting you all soon!!! Party on!!!
