Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Ultimate Blog Party 2009


Hi all! I’m Jodi from jodimichelle.com, thanks for stopping by! This is my first Blog Party. This website started almost 5 years ago when we found out we were pregnant with baby #1 (our daughter, Jessica) to keep the family updated on the pregnancy. It has since become something I do on the side, writing through losses, depression and joyful life events. I have a serious passion for etsy and creating community through my website. I also love to laugh at myself and idolize other woman on the web – Dooce and Mighty Girl, to name drop a few.
We now have baby #2 – our son, Oliver who is almost one. Why does it go so much faster the second time around? I stay home to be a mom by day and super woman by night. Just kidding on that mom thing. No, ha! Ha. I am a stay at home mom. And I’m super. Alicia Keys says so. Although recently I’ve had an itch to go back to work, who knows what that means. I was in banking before staying home – and before that I was in real estate.
This feels like an interview. I also love long walks on the beach – and I’m not a cat or dog person.
We recently got cable tv and I’ve become a huge Foodie. HGTV could help me waste hours upon hours if I had them to waste and John and Kate plus 8? Forget about it. I’m a gonner. But I try to bring that all back here with plenty of food demonstrations and recipe features. It stops there though, I’m not having 6 more kids to bring anything “back to my site”. I have to draw a line somewhere.
I think I’ll pull some giveaways out of the closet this week, too. Let’s celebrate!
And if I win, I would love any of these:
#58 Kitchen Aid!
#7 Ergo baby carrier
Any of the Target GC (#19, 21, 22, 26, 91)
#8 Stuck on You
#56 Surprise Box of Art Suplies
#106 Melissa and Doug Role Play Dress Up
#118 Old Navy GC
#88 GC to Carabas
