The Ultimate Blog Party!

I love a great party, so when I came across The Ultimate Blog Party I had to dust off my cute little party dress and join the fun.

A little about me …

I’m a wife, mother, freelance writer, music lover, tennis player, chocolate connoisseur, NBA fanatic, blah, blah, blah. Husband and I have been happily married for almost nine years and have two wonderful children – Miles, 6, and Milan, 4 going on 14. My life-changing wedding was featured on The Learning Channel’s popular television show “A Wedding Story.”

In my previous life, before kids, I was an entertainment publicist for a popular record company. I happily left the jet-set life of catering to superstars so that I could stay at home and cater to my own little superstars. In addition to freelance writing, I recently wrote a book, Help! I'm a Newlywed… What Do I Do Now? Wife-Saving Advice Every New Bride Must Know to Survive the First Year of Marriage. Special advance copies will be available in April 2008. I also recently launched AskWifey.com. The site offers wives and mothers straight-forward, practical advice to help make managing marriage and motherhood easier; and features my weekly Ask Wifey column.

At Wifey’s House I pretty much blog about marriage and motherhood. I think marriage too often takes a backseat to motherhood so I will often bring it to the forefront. Every Wednesday at Wifey’s House is Hump Day when I post something about sex. We wives and mothers are so busy that our sex lives often suffer the most. Hump Day is intended to put a little spark into our week and hopefully keep the fire burning. On Fridays I normally confess something. I don’t know why I feel the need to tell on myself, I guess a little confession is good for the soul. Other days are a free-for-all peek into Wifey’s House. Please do come back and visit. I love company and would love to check out your house, too!

My prize picks are:

#91, Burts Bees Naturally Ageless Skin Care Line provided by Geggie at So, What Else? What Else? What Else?

And …

#117, $25 gift certificate to Target offered by Mommy Bytes (I live in Target!)

Oh, I almost forgot. I am offering a signed special advance copy of my new book as a prize, too, so make sure to come join the fun!

Happy partying…


Update - I just got word that due to an overwhelming response the prize donation list is closed. I will still gladly give the book away, just leave me a comment before the end of the day Friday, March 14, midnight PST, and you will automatically qualify to win.

Hi, that's really cool that your wedding story was on the Learning Channel, I remember that series (I don't know if it's still on or not - it might be).

Well I'm having fun meeting all of these bloggers on this huge, long list (can you believe there's over 1,000....I'm 1258 and we still have 3 days to go!). Enjoy the party and blog hopping! :)

Nice to meet you. Pretty cool that you were married on tv. I used to watch that kind of stuff back when we had a television.
Happy Blog Party!

Rachel and Jacob said...

happy party! nice to meet you!!

Sarah said...

Thanks for stopping by. I would love an advance copy of your book!!

I think I actually just finished the first chapter of my first children's book. I have it mapped out but several drafts and a couple of key characters appearing out of thin air later I think I have what I was looking for in the first chapter -- just in time for a new writer's critique group I am attending tomorrow!

What do you do for input?

When I actually have the complete manuscript I will have to come back and ask you about publishing!

Thanks and have a great week!

Thanks to everyone for stopping by! I'm doing my best to get my party on and visit as many blogs as I can!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I will DEFINATELY be back to yours...and not just because I would love a copy of your book. [Shameless hint] I'm not really a newbie to the relationship thing-my husband and I celebrate 6 years together in November-but we DID just get married last year so I guess technically I'm a newlywed...and I am always looking for ways to make things spicy. Especially since having a 4 year old and a 1 month old has me looking and feeling like a sleep deprived bag lady. Luckiy, as you said, bag lady or no it doesn't seem to put a dent in my husband's sex drive! :)

I hope to see you around my blog. Have a great party!

Hey! Thanks for popping by my blog.
Love the name. Wifey is the nickname my husband uses when he emails me.
If you are still giving away advance copies of your book, sign me up!

Great party!
