The Ultimate Blog Party

Last year, amidst all the boxes and moving, I participated in 5 Minutes For Mom's 2008 Ultimate Blog Party. I made some food, served some drinks and made a few new friends. That's what a party should be, right?

So here it is, 2009 and once again, 5 Minutes for Mom is having another party!
Ultimate Blog Party 2009

It's a party, so we have to introduce ourselves, mix and mingle and have a good time, right? Well, there's a lot of mingling to do, so I'll get on with it.

Hi, I'm Suzanne. I've been writing this blog since September 2005, but I have other blogs and write about food and give out recipes at MomDot each Thursday and I'm about to embark on a new writing adventure soon. This week marks my return to the workforce after a long hiatus. (Yay and Boo, depending on my mood).

SuzanneSez chronicles my life in such a way that you can't help but notice I have ADHD! I write about food, music, family, health and anything else that strikes my fancy, and I'll throw in a picture or twenty. Now that I've got a Flip, there will be some vlogging (maybe even about food).

The cast of characters here at SuzanneSez:
Gameboy(soon to become GameTeen)
My nearly teenage older son. He keeps us on our toes. He's my 'alphabet soup' kid, because he's got Aspergers Syndrome and a host of related issues. He likes video games, fantasy movies, reading game strategy guides and listening to movie soundtracks. If he used his obsessions for good, there is nothing that could stop this child.

Chef Jr.

My nine year old comedian, cook and all around hyper, happy kid. He lives to make people laugh and is a budding gourmet.

(the picture is from a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Chicago, 1995**) My other half, partner in crime and the person who puts up with the insanity that I dish out. It's rare to find a picture of Ed where he's serious-I guess I should have had a clue that the kids would be the same way.

Since you're new, I'll show you around. On Wednesdays, there are pictures of dinner in What's For Dinner Wednesday (now with vlogs, too). I write about music every Soundtrack Sunday. Every day, there's at least one entry.

Yes, I write every day. It's a habit that sprung out of participating in NaBloPoMo 16 months ago. In fact, if someone wanted to give me an iPhone, so I can blog on the fly, I'd be very appreciative.

Besides the above mentioned, I write about what we do here in Florida, my boys adventures with Scouting and school, family, put up a lot of pictures and I talk about my health issues. There's a meme or two thrown in. If we get to enjoy a new wine or a good meal, I'm going to talk about it, because I have a big mouth.

Recently, I started doing reviews, but I'm keeping that on a separate blog.

Feel free to stick around. I make a mighty good sangria, and I love to feed people. If you think we could be bloggy friends, be sure to follow or put me in your feed reader). Leave me a comment, so I can come visit you, too!

If you just happen to be one of the regulars around here and didn't know about the blog party, you can head over to 5 Minutes For Mom and join in the fun. This year, there are PRIZES!!!!

**Donna and Ed caught the wrong year on that picture taken in Chicago, it was 1995. (I thought Donna was asking about the blog year!)

Welcome, everybody!

Skoots, I had to track down pictures, but yes, it was fun.

Nell, thanks for stopping in!

Jamerican, last year I found some great blogs to read from participating in the UBP. I hope this year's event finds you some favorites, too.

Donna, I started it when Mom was sick. Hard to believe that "Socrates and the Furious Redhead" was almost 4 years ago!
ligirl said…
Sorry...I misunderstood! I thought you meant that the pic of you and Ed from Chicago was from 2005!
