Welcome to my blog.
My name is Melanie and I'm the Reluctant Housewife. I enjoy fine dining and sunset walks on the beach. Well, that's not important right now, is it? Let's get right down to the details so that you can feel at home.
This is me:
Things you need to know about me: My blog is my personal playground. I use this tiny cyberspace to babble about whatever is on my mind or share whatever catches my eye. So one day I might be complaining about a pregnant woman I saw smoking, the next I might share pictures of my kids and the next you might find a funny video or a great song, or I might just play a silly game. Forrest Gump might liken this blog to a box of chocolates, if he really existed that is. Which he doesn't. Just so we're clear.
I also craft. I crocheted the blanket I'm sitting under in that picture and the hats my kids are wearing in the next picture. I also make bead earrings. You can see more of my craft stuff at my other blog Lulu's Hook, or at my Etsy shop which is also called Lulu's Hook.
I have two little boys. One of the other moms at the playground recently said to me, "God only gives two boys to women who can handle it". "Pfft," I say to that, I do. I call the boys Buddy and Monkey here in blogland. Buddy is seven and has scruffy blond hair, freckles and a gap in his bottom teeth where he recently lost his tooth. The gap increases his cuteness exponentially. Monkey is four and has big chocolate coloured eyes and non-scruffy brown hair. They both have quirky personalities. Read more about them (and me!) over there <--- on the left sidebar. Here are my boys:
I also have a husband. I like my husband. A lot. Like, I like like him, you know. Sqweeeee! And the, like, thing is that, like, I think he likes me too. Oh Mah Gawd!
If you'd like a giveaway to enter (a 3 item giveaway!) and my touching (but quick to read) blog story to read AND a funny rewrite of the lyrics to Jenny from the Block by J Lo called Melly from the Blog then head on over to my Blogoversary post.
Happy first day of Spring! And Party on, Ultimate style, yo!
Oops! I forgot to add that my top 3 choices from the prizes are:
1. USC 16 — $50 gift certificate to Kristen’s Custom Creations. I love this shop. I already know what I'd buy. This. Love it!
2. USC 27 - Spanish language learning software from Life is Sweet. Hubs and I have been working on our Spanish language skills. Hubs has a knack for language and has picked it up fairly well. I can only say, "Qué passe, guapo?" and "Dos cafés con leche, por favor." and I'm not at all sure those are spelled correctly. So, as you can see, I could use some help.
3. USC 26 — $50.00 Gift Voucher to Hatley. What a cute shop! I love the rubber boots!
