Welcome to my Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

I had never thought to have a party here at the blog before, but I am so glad to have you stop by.

I'm Amy and I hope we can be friends. Check out that scenery!



I'm 27 and --ironically enough since you're coming from 5 Minutes for Mom--single! I love blogging, friends, reading, watching addictive television, travel, and Jesus. (not necessarily in that order)

I teach reading improvement and language acquisition during the daytime to adults. It's a blast and has taught me so much about life and people.

I'd like you to feel welcome with some snacks, so I'll share my favorites with you. I have a serious Diet Mt. Dew addiction. I don't drink heaps of coffee, but I do love my Dew! :) When I was younger I used to love the treat of Mountain Dew and Junior Mints at the movies. So that's what we have here, today friends...mmm, tasty! :)

If you're interested in reading some of my past posts, click on the Hall of Fame tab to get an idea of who I am!

Anyway, I hope you'll stick around awhile and be my friend!

I'll have to skip the soda and the candy. But I'm partying away listening to some classic jazz. "I Get A Kick Out of You" - I just love that song.
Thanks for the photo of the beach. Since moving from San Diego to Vegas I do miss it.

What a beautiful view from your party window! Thanks for the moment of fresh air. Swing by my party when you get a chance.

I got to your blog through Fancypants' blog. I too have a serious Diet Mt. Dew addiction!! So I'm really enjoying the treats at your blog party. I love those Junior Mints too.

I'll pass on the Mt. Dew, but you better keep an eye on the Junior Mints. And no...my pockets don't look full at all...

Yum, Junior Mints! My hub doesn't like anything with chocolate and mint. I think he's from another planet.

I was thinking about doing the Ultimate Blog Party also, but wasn't sure if I would get any traffic since it's so big. I'm interested to know if you're getting hits. Maybe it's too late for me now since I would probably be number 1,587.

Nice scenery! Is that really what you can see from your house, or am I being too literal?

So I'm really curious how you got involved with 5 Minutes for Mom if you're NOT a mom? Not that I have a problem with it, just curious what brought you there?

Alexis Jacobs said...
