Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

 Head over to 5 Minutes for Mom to join in the fun, and win some prizes!!!

A little about me - I'm a stay at home mom to 3 adorable little Princess' (you can read about our adventures HERE).  

I am married to handsome, wonderful, amazing High School Band Director

I started Home Maid Simple as a way to get my personal life and home in order.  I felt I was living in chaos and couldn't enjoy my family or my home (apartment living here) if I didn't get it organized. I also thought if I had people reading about and seeing my messy home I'd have more motivation (it worked!).  Little did I know I would make some great friends through blogging.  

So what exactly do I blog about? Just about anything and everything around the home.  If I do something that makes my home feel more like a Home, I post about it.  Topics range from cleaning, organizing, cooking, exercise, and soon gardening!  In just a short time I've ventured out to also include reviews and giveaways.  Although they are periodic and just a side to the blog, it's been a lot of fun.  I've got to "meet" a lot of great people with home owned businesses, and work with some larger companies.  In fact, make sure you stop by later today to enter our first giveaway for The Big Moving Event! (you can find the first giveaway HERE!)

The Big Moving Event is a month long event you do not want to miss!  I'll have featured etsy shops, giveaways, and pictures as we move into our first home! Which by the way, we closed on Tuesday and are very proud first time home owners!

I love comments and followers, but I only want you here, if YOU want to be here (and I hope you do). 
And I guess I'll leave you with a picture of me...so you feel like you know me too, and not just my family : P
Sorry you just can't get a picture of me without some family!

  12. Congrats on the new home!!!!

    Cher, you shouldn't worry about that. I used to be the same way, but one day we are going to look back out younger selves, if we took pictures, and think we looked great, in comparison. LOL. Less wrinkles, less fat, less cellulite, less grey. LOL. Speak for myself, huh?

    Party on, people.
