Well I've been so excited this month because I've been chosen to participate in a  great project.   Im going  to New York City for a Mommy Bloggers Brunch.....yep look out NYC here I come.  Rain, sleet, snow I'm like the U.S. Postal Service I will get there.    My sister is also on the team...you can check out her blog at http://pinkybrowninc.blogspot.com/

Our host is Haddad Brands...if that doesn't sound familiar let me bring you up to speed.....  Nike, Levi's, 6.0, Jordan (now your saying ahhhhhhhh).

We've been given permission today to blog...blog and tell that we've been hand picked to be on their Mommy Blogger Team and I'm extremely excited to say the least.  As the mother of 5 children ages 10 months to 16 years old.   Ive pretty much done, seen and bought it all.

But it gets even better......how exciting is it that we get a tour of the different brand showrooms (so up my alley since I miss being in retail so much) and we will actually meet the President of Haddad Brands himself.    ARE YOU KIDDING.........

This for me is like the equivalent of my husband meeting Lebron James or my daughters meeting Chris Brown or Selena Gomez.  I love retail and this is going to be such a great opportunity.

When I started this blog I did alot of posts on decorating my home and some of my childrens parties.  I  would blog in between naps and sometimes while nursing..it was addicting but I was leaving a piece of me out.  So when the New Year came I said I wanted to change things up a little and be different basically be ME.....give my blog some edge and new topics.   I've also started a sister blog Mama J and Her Fashionistas http://mamajandherfashionistas.blogspot.com/

When opportunity knocks, you open the door and say "HELLOOOOO  HOW YOU DOIN?"

God don't like ugly! Neither do I...so if you dont have something nice to say.....keep it to yourself!
