Ultimate Blog Party 2009!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Welcome here, and thanks for stopping by. Please have some rainbow jell-o, cuz there is always room for jell-o!


My name is Jay and I am a stay at home wife and mommy. I am married to my sweetie Ken, and we will celebrate our 8th anniversary this summer. Our daughter Ariel is just over 2 and a half, and is the sunshine in our lives. We are also expecting another miracle at the end of the summer! Please take a moment to vote if you think it will be a boy or girl! We will be finding out the sex on April 21st, so come back again to see if you guessed right.


Ariel is a total girly girl. She is into dance and clothes, so not like me at all. However, I have totally embraced it and love every moment. If I would let her, I am sure she would be blogging already too. Haha.


One thing I did get hooked on was Gymboree, and Ariel can't wait to do fashion shows to share her new duds. Last year at the party I shared a little video of Ariel in her gymbo, and I thought it be fun to do again. So here is the past year, and a look back at how much my little girl has grown.


I am really into crafts and sewing projects. My latest one I am unveiling the final product today for you all. Its Ariel's new cupcake quilt I designed for her new big girl room. I finished hand sewing the binding and saved showing it for today. Now I am designing a matching pillow sham to go with it.


Well, I am sure you all have many other parties to get to, so have a good time! Stop by to visit anytime, we are glad to have you.

You have a beautiful family and I am totally in love with that cupcake quilt! I think I might go looking for patterns now because my granddaughter will be 2 in July and that would be so precious for her.

oh my, we have many things in common.... i have a 2.7 yr old (or maybe t's 2.8 b/cs he's a july baby), and i'm about 21 wks along, so just a bit ahead (however, i also have a 14 mo old in b/twn!!) of you.... and i say if you're my age (almost 29), then it's a boy. but if you're older than i am, it's a girl. does that work??? lol. we just found out our #3 is a boy so i'm totally guessing here! and can i just say OMG to your beautiful quilt?? i'm a knitter at heart, but quilting is my BRAND NEW OBSESSION and i love yours. (oh and by brand new, i mean i haven't started yet but it's in the qeue!)i 'll defintiely be back!!

I can tell you how to find out what you're having!! I posted about it on What to Expect: http://www.whattoexpect.com/blogs/mylittlemonkeys/baby-gender-prediction-ive-found-the-secret.aspx

You'll have to see what it says and then be sure to tell me if I'm right or not. So far, I haven't ever been wrong! :)

Oh, and that cupcake quilt is to DIE for! I love it! I wish I had that kind of talent!
