Ultimate Blog Party '10

Ultimate Blog Party 2010


So, It's Ultimate Blog Party time...time to blog hop and meet new friends and find new blogs to follow.

If you're partying and stopping by....welcome. Parenting in blue jeans is meant to encourage myself and other moms. I write it to give myself focus and jot down the crazy life that I live in jeans. Well, I don't actually wear my jeans everyday but close.

"Parenting in blue jeans" is a good analogy for my life. I'm relaxed. I'm casual. I'm practical. Being a mom feels like wearing my favorite jeans. Both are stained and a bit worn, but are still comforting and a good fit. They both make me feel like a million bucks.

And....if I should be drawn for a prize I would love prize US 113 ($50 to Amazon) thank-ya very much.

here through the UBP. I'm honest when I say, I'm clicking on the blog titles that catch my eye... :) yours made the cut! great blog, great philosophy and in regards to the post below this one? My favorite quote is "it's none of my business what other people think of me."

have a great time partying!

I came to visit for the 2010 Ultimate Blog Party and really enjoyed visiting. I'm a bit older - a member of the Baby Boomers Generation caring for elderly parents and Granny nanny-ing adorable grandchildren, but I, too, live in jeans - blue, black, doesn't matter as long as they are JEANS and COMFY! :)

Like you, I also am a Christ-Follower, who loves praise and worship songs and music, inspirational and encouraging Bible verses, and I love sharing all of that at SandwichINK.com. :)

Have a blessed and beautiful day and fun with the blog party! :)

Loving this party! I also share your casualness of motherhood! Great blog! I will be back and following!

Christina Linnell said...

So love your banner! You stopped by my place so I thought I would check yours out. How cool is it that you were a MOPS Coord. I know you are in Michigan & I am in Texas but you look familiar. Weird? Love your stuff!

Jen@Scrapingirl said...

It's so nice to find other Michigan bloggers. Did you get snow today? :) Have fun at the party!!

Elizabeth said...

I love your blog name too! Thanks for stopping by :o)

I post my weight loss because it is what worked for me in the past. Accountability! I really HATE having to announce when I fell off plan and gained 4 pounds (like I did last week lol) and that holds me accountable. When I'm reaching for the red cream Oreos my boys are snacking on right now, I ask myself "do I really want to put this in my food tracker for all my weight loss friends to seee??? no, no I don't." so I don't eat it. If that makes sense :o)

Rhonda said...

Hi Jennifer! Thanks for stopping by my blog and following me. (That sounds so stalkerish doesn't it? lol) I know what you mean about "none ya" we jokingly say it sometimes. I just love the before and after shots of your kids in the fountain. I actually LOL'd and my husband asked me what was so funny. I had to show him the picture. Anyway, happy blog partying to you and I will be following your blog.

Bree said...

Hi! Thanks for coming to my party and for following my blog, too! I love your blog. I ESPECIALLY love your about me description. First of all-we have a lot in common-I love candy, cleaning and garage sales...but I think I may need some pointers on the cleaning....maybe you can help me out in the department with any tips! Since my June Cleaver project, I am trying to pick up any I can get! Please feel free to let me know if you have any at all!!! I am serious! I will continue to follow you. Have fun partying!!!

Hi there - you passed by to say hello and asked how I was able to put music on my blog. If you head on over to http://playlist.com - you will be able to do the same. It's free and easy. Just follow the steps. If you need help, don't hesitate to ask.

God bless you.
