Woot Woot!! It's time to party!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

This is the first year that I am participating in the 5 Minutes for Mom's Ultimate Blog Party. I am super excited to be a part of this. I look forward to finding some great blogs and to making some new bloggy friends.


A little bit about me...I am a mom to two girls - Riley and Taylor. Riley will be four next week and Taylor is two-and-a-half. They are seventeen months apart and keep us very busy. I am married to Brian and we will be celebrating our 8 year wedding anniversary this June. We also have a Siberian Husky named Sierra and two cats - Sneakers and Kitty.

We live in Northeast WI. Brian and I were both born and raised here. We love this area and think that it's great for raising kids.

I work full time outside the home as a buyer at a local contract manufacturer. I have been there 8.5 years. Brian works as a mechanic. We are blessed in that the girls are watched by our parents while we are at work.


Some things I love are reading, networking online, blogging, knitting, and yoga. Brian and I are huge Seinfeld fans. We spend a lot of our free time as a family camping and biking.

The name of my blog came about because my last name is "Pink". You would not believe the amount of people that ask me how to spell that, so most of the time, when giving our last name, we just say, "Pink...Like the Color."

This blog is a little bit about our crazy busy life and I try to keep it pretty light-hearted. You will see some reviews and giveaways, but I keep most of those on my review site. I also have a passion for meal planning and am trying to launch a meal planning site.

That's about it about me. If there's anything more you want to know, just ask; otherwise, stick around for awhile and check out the fun.


Some prizes I would like to win are:

  • The $50 gift certificate to Target Stores provided by Shoot-Me-Now (prize #19)
  • The $50 gift certificate to Target Stores provided by Agoosa (prize #21)
  • The $50 gift certificate to Target Stores provided by Beginner Baby Blog (price #22)
Some other prizes I wouldn't mind winning in no particular order are: #8, #9, #15, #26, #28, #50, #56, #91, #96, #101, #118.
