Welcome Saucy Girlfriends!

Let me start by saying, hold me. I'm scared. I feel like I'm at amateur night and got lost looking for my table, went through the wrong door, and ended up on stage in the spotlight with my skirt caught up in my knickers. My blog is being featured? How exciting... or embarassing, I'm not sure.

I decided to start my happy blog last year when my life took on some dramatic changes. This way I could update friends and family who have moved away, without having to remember to send emails or call. That is pure genious on a stick.

Along the way I've been pleasantly surprised with some new bloggy friends who are supportive and helpful. In short, I got married last year (second marriage, after a long battle with my commitment phobia). Our wedding was beautiful and over the top. However, this marriage came with one special little package... a 9 year old step-daughter. I hesitantly gave up my girly house and moved in to Daddy's bachelor pad. You can just imagine the work cut out for me. Don't get me started on the 3 bathrooms!

Enter SITS. I believe it was Kathy (Mama's Losin It) who turned me on to SITS. I joined not so much for the traffic, but a way to peek into your lives and read some VERY funny stories, all with a leopard print backdrop.

I can't hold a candle to you saucy girls, but I hope you enjoy reading about this girl from the Midwest who has found Mr. Right, at last.

Congrats on not only your SITS day, but on your new marriage and family.

I married a man with 2 daughters (11 and 9) last year, and it can be tough. Now that I have found your blog, I will be sure to check it out regularly.
