Ultimate Blog Party

Welcome to my little home on the net! I’m so happy you decided to stop by. For those that don’t know me my name is Laura and I’m the resident freak! I love love love to organize! What I really love is the “high” I get from it….oh I think it is safe to say I’m definitely addicted. This blog helps further enable my habit by giving me the opportunity to not only blog about my addiction but also entice others to join me….the more junkies out there the less freakish I seem…lol. I’m not an expert by any means, nor do I have the perfect household but usually what I do is just share what works for me around my house and sometimes when I get questions that are way out of my league I simply try to find resources of those more knowledgeable to help you.

Keeping on top of my three children is a challenge so often I am working and re-working my systems trying to find just the right one for us. What I’ve discovered is that organizing is an ongoing PROCESS and a system that works for us today may not necessarily work for us next year or even next month. Constantly re-working my systems not only gives me another “fix” each time I do it but makes for a lot of great blog topics too!
Also popular around here is Menu Plan Monday. Close to 100 ladies come together each Monday to share our weekly menus and often the recipes to go with them. I started menu planning out of necessarity in 2005 when I had to go on a restricted diet for 8 months but now find that I couldn’t live without it. MPM has been amazingly helpful to me to keep me on track and out of the dinner rut! We’d love to have you join us!

Could you use some help getting one of your spaces organized either with motivation and/or accountability? If the answer to that question is yes then you’ve come to the right place! Beginning April 1st I will be hosting the second 30 Day Organizational Challenge and of course we’ll have more prizes to give away! The first one was so much fun and all the participants did such an amazing job. Check out the first challenge here to see what went on and stay tuned for more information on the next one.

I want to thank you again for stopping by. I would have baked you a cake but unfortunately I’m still exhausted from my last baking attempt! So instead I leave you with this big beautiful bouquet of balloons to really help get you in the party spirit.

To visit more party blogs head on over to the Mr. Linky provided by the very sweet and lovely party hostesses, Janice and Susan, at 5M4M!

    *waving hello* and thanks for the welcome! I am enjoying your blog. I know you are from BC somewhere, and I am too. Did you see Hellen Buttigieg on the Gill Deacon show today on CBC? I have a link on my blog if you are interested in it. And, just to let you know that the Tyra Banks show today has a whole hour devoted to organizing. That starts right about now! And, if you get City Line, Peter Walsh will be on there next Monday!

    Cheers!

    I read your blog regularly but through the RSS feed, so I’m de-lurking for the party. I always enjoy browsing the MPM links to get ideas for our dinner menus. Thanks for all of the tips!

    You’re a daily blog for me too. :)

    I love that you love to organize. Your blog feeds my “inner organizer.” I’m waiting for the day when the inner me and the outer me align. ;) Like when the kids are grown! lol

    I got my Blog Party started, too. It’s my 100th post! Yay! So I did a “100 things about me”. Hope it’s good reading enough. :p

    Have a great weekend!

    Seems to me that March must be party month in blogland…so many parties to attend, so little time. Really enjoy reading your posts! You have inspired me to become more organized in many ways. Now I’m off to the next party.

    I was tickled to see you linked your apple cake baking post. I’m still laughing about that little episode.

    Party balloons! Why didn’t I think of that! Not that I didn’t post enough photos at my party, of course. But I should have put in some balloons.

    Obviously I’m not quite as organized as I think I am. :-)

    Hmm, I could probably do a lot better at organizing if I didn’t have a husband who finds it necessary to hang on to 20 year old magazines, his wrestling shoes from high school (30 years ago), and enough books to start a branch library. *sigh*

    Anyway, it was nice finding you via the party!

    Hi Laura

    Love those balloons. Makes me happy instantly.

    I’m so glad you love systems – so do I. I wrote my last newsletter article on systems. it’s here if you’re interested http://2006takecharge.blogspot.com

    I must say, Menu Plan Monday has helped keep me on track. And you won’t believe it – remember a few weeks ago, I said I made my husband do the weekly shop to keep us within budget. We made it! First time in months we stayed within our budget. Woohoo!

    Jennifer says

    Hi,
    I discovered you blog actually a couple of weeks ago, your a girl after my own heart. I love organizing as well. I’m new to blogging so I decided to join the party to meet new people. I hope to join your menu Mondays soon.

    Hugs,
    Jennifer

    Hello! Stopping by for the party. With the mass amount of links, I had to kind of close my eyes and pick…but looks like I found a gem! Your meal-planning group sounds like a lifesaver! I’ll be back! (In a non-Terminator-ish way!)

    I wish I could maintain what I organize, or rather I wish my kids could maintain what I organize.

    Thanks for visiting me!

    Oooo…I’m so excited you’re doing the challenge, I missed it the first time around. Yay!

    Got a giggle out of your comment about getting high on organizing – it’s so true! There aren’t many addictions in life that we enjoy and don’t consider going into rehab for!

    If you could see my house, you’d probably advise me to stop by here a bit more often ;-) Organization I am not skilled at LOL!
    Have a great day.
