Another Year of Blogging.

4 Jul


I can’t believe that today marks four years of me blogging. Yes, I am a total nerd starting my blog on the 4th of July.

While I should have been out having fun with family and friends I was home with two little kids while Bill was at the course working. What else was I supposed to do? I guess I have the Turf Lifestyle to thank for me becoming a blogger.

I had no idea then what the purpose of my blog would be and somedays I still struggle with Mommyland’s identity. I used to be upset that I wasn’t one of the “big dogs” and that I didn’t have a gazillion readers. I longed for someone to recognize me from my blog. Then one day I realized that I can’t do this for other people. I can’t blog for fame and free products. I have to do this because I love it. I have to just be me.

So that’s what I’m doing here.

I want to thank YOU for coming along on this journey with me and I hope you stick around for all that is to come.

I’m looking forward to sharing my adventures in the kitchen with you. I’m sure my kids won’t stop their “lovable antics” anytime soon. Will I ever get through this final weight loss plateau? There is so much left here in Mommyland.

There was something that happened in these four years that I wasn’t expecting…I met so many wonderful people. My blogging buddies are nothing short of amazing, they are an inspiration to me daily and in all aspects of my life. I’ve met some truly incredible women with incredible stories. I’ve been welcomed by big named bloggers and never once have they made me feel like I was less important than they are.

Somehow people I don’t even know have found Mommyland and it’s been fun meeting and hearing from the readers. Thanks again!

So on this 4th of July I want to say Happy Birthday America AND Happy Birthday Mommyland. I hope you and your family are having a wonderful day!


Special Day In Mommyland

9 Nov

I can’t even believe it’s been four whole years since I met my second little boy. That’s right, today is Logan’s fourth birthday. At 9:59pm on November 9, 2008 we welcomed Logan into our little family.

My Life In Mommyland Happy Birthday!

It feels like a lifetime ago that I spent nearly two days in the hospital waiting for his arrival. I can hardly remember life before Logan.

My Life In Mommyland

1st Birthday

My sweet, sensitive, cuddly little boy.

So much has changed in those four years. We live in a new house. I’m not even driving the same car he came home in. Logan himself is so much different. The baby who couldn’t stand to be left in babysitting at the Y now happily jumps out of the car to go to preschool.

We’ve gone from bassinet, to crib, to toddler bed and now he has a full size bed of his own. Diapers are a distant memory. There’s nothing here but big boy.

2nd Birthday

As much as I can’t remember life without Logan, there’s so much of the day to day that I can’t remember. I hardly remember the baby Logan, I feel like he’s always been my little man. I guess I’ve done a lot of living in the moment the second time around.

3rd Birthday

Just like with every birthday one of the boys has, I wonder how am I old enough to have a four year old? Where have my babies gone?

Happy Birthday Logan!!
