Blog hop sounds like something Id do while drinking ....

So this is my first official participation in a blog hop, but from what I see, I sort of dig it.

The awesome Household 6 Diva  and Riding the Roller Coaster are co-hosting this awesome hop, and if they are doing it, its good enough for me!

I vacillate between fun posts and serious ones. I have a lot of opinions, but I try to present them in a non-confrontational format. I dont want to be all up in your koolaid yo. Im laid back in general, but super self conscious ... I want people to love me. Ill let you know how that works out for me.

I’ve been an army wife for 5 years now (though it seems like forever). I took some time off from blogging when I had my youngest. We call him the baby dictator (aka The Small One) and hes 7 months. 7 very loud months.

I also have a 13 year old (The Large One), and my husband (The Very Large One), who is more work than the other two put together!

I am a SAHM for the first time, after years in the workforce. Im still coming around to the idea, but in the meantime I practice all sorts of interesting parenting habits - to include breastfeeding, cloth diapering, baby wearing, and teaching my children how to be really awesome (and, sadly, spoiled). 

I dont write about the army all that much - the longer were in, the less it seems important. But sometimes youll get snippets. Mostly I like to talk about hot topics, funny things that happen throughout the day, or important milestones. Youll get a bit of everything here! 

Here we are ! 

You can get a general idea of who I am by browsing around, I wont bore anyone with the details (hi, Im Anne, Im a Capricorn, I love Glee and Oreos ....), but generally speaking if Im around, I try to keep it fresh ... to death.

I also love Jersey Shore.
