Come Join The Party

Welcome to all Ultimate Blog Party visitors! Thank you so much for stopping by!  One of the things I love most about the blogging world is the social network, and what better way to network than a party!  While we are on the topic of a good party, this party is definitely my style these days.  Sitting on my bed, in my Lulu's, between laundry and cleaning the house during Baby's nap time...I call that a good party!

I am a Mommy to a beautiful 10 month old Baby girl (I refer to her as The Boss on the only seems appropriate).  Her arrival took us a bit by surprise but I can honestly say my life has never felt as complete as it does with my baby girl.  But, I'm getting ahead of myself.

I am Canadian and my husband is American.  We met in Virginia at school.  After dating for nine months we got engaged and married nine months later on July 12, 2008.  We lived in Virginia for a year as a married couple before we moved to Canada to be closer to my family.  Shortly after we got here we found out that we were having a baby.  The Boss was born May 26, 2010 turning our two into three.

 We currently live in Canada but my husband is from Florida so we make frequent trips to see the family.

I am currently on the tail end of my maternity leave (thank you Canada for a full year off) and will be returning for work at the beginning of June.  I love being a Mommy and no longer think as an individual but as a Mommy first.  The Boss has so much personality and I love watching her grow and develop.  My passions include shopping, decorating and DIY. 

So now that you've partied with me, go and party somewhere else! Please leave me a comment letting me know you were here, along with a link to your blog as well.   If you want to join the fun, and haven't already, just drop by 5 Minutes for Mom and add your blog, Facebook page or Twitter to the linky and follow the directions to join in the Ultimate Blog Party.

Be sure to check back here tomorrow as I will be posting a great baby girl tutorial and a GIVEAWAY!

One year of maternity leave would be so nice but it would be hard for me to go back to work.
