One Mom's Perfect Imperfection: UBP 2010

One Mom's Perfect Imperfection

One mom's journey through life and her hodgepodge of hobbies.

09 April 2010

UBP 2010

Happy Friday to you all!  First I want to thank those of you that linked up on Tuesday for the premier of Around the Town on Tuesday blog hop that Jes @ Exposing the Drapes to my 20s and I worked very hard on putting together.  We have had quite a lot of interest for the next post day so I hope we have more linking going on.  The next post day will be Tuesday, April 20th and the subject is parks.  Show us at least one park in your town - or all the parks.  Give us a little information about the park.  The choice is yours!  For information about Around the Town on Tuesday, click on the graphic on my   sidebar.  Now onto to some more fun....

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

I am linking up today with 5 Minutes For Mom for their Ultimate Block Party 2010.  So to all of you visiting today, welcome!  I hope you'll click around and stay a while.  To my regulars, stick around.  You might learn something new about yours truly.  ;)

I'll properly introduce myself.  My name is Courtney.  I am a 35 year old stay at home mom to two children.  Keegan is four years old and Presley is almost 16 months old.  They are the light of my life.  I'm a Christian woman.  I've been married to my husband, Mike for over 7 years now.  We met on a blind date which still sounds crazy to me because it's so not like me.  When we got engaged, we were officially engaged for five days before we ran off and got married.  I still wouldn't change a thing.  I'm still madly in love with him after all these years.  He's a wonderful husband and father.  

Mike and I are both originally from Kentucky.  I grew up in a small town called Madisonville which boasts to be "the best town on earth".  I would beg to differ.  While I loved growing up in Kentucky, (and I still bleed Wildcat blue) I don't think I was made for small town life.  I seem to thrive in the big city.  And there were no big cities close by.  After Mike and I were married for a matter of months, we moved to Hendersonville, TN which is a north suburb of Nashville.  We loved it there.  This is where Keegan was born so it will always hold a special place in our hearts.  Then Mike's job transferred us to our current location, Arlington, TN which is just northeast of Memphis, TN (my big city).   We've lived here for almost 3 years now.  This is where Presley was born.  Living in Memphis is a bit surreal to me because since the tender age of four, I've been mildly obsessed with Elvis Presley.  I also love history and there certainly is a lot of that around here.  So I have immensely enjoyed exploring Memphis.  

I have many hobbies which is mostly what I blog about.  I love to scrapbook (though I'm way, way behind), cook, love to dabble in photography, just started quilting/sewing and blogging has become quite the obsession.  I do what I can when I can with two little ones running around.  I'm a bit of a neat freak, but am starting to realize that a clean house is overrated.  Try hard as I may, I am just not Superwoman.   Something has to suffer.  My kids and hobbies are way more fun!

I hope I didn't bore y'all too much.  Have a great weekend!
Y'all come back now!
