:Behind the Blogger: Day 12-- Your Blog Story.

A Blogger’s 30-Day Challenge! (A dare to blog regularly) I posted my first blog post back on November 27, 2009.  You can check it out here. My First attempt of Blogging as you can tel it was on a different blog platform. One Girl Ideas website was first created in Publisher and Go Daddy had a free blogging platform that I could just link it to so I figured I would give that a try.  Its not pretty but it gives you an idea of how far I have come.  

My blog is really an outlet for me to let steam off and de-stress. I really enjoy sharing the things that happen in my life and My Big Ideas! 

My about page found here About Me tells you about me and the things I talk about and hold dear and near to my heart.  

I also would love to Thank all of you for reading my blog and the encouragement that you have all given me that feeds my excitement to keep blogging!  

If you ever want to here more of my story just let me know and I will fill ya in!

Luv ya All!

Sugarland says it how I feel lately:

Sugarland - Little Miss Lyrics
Little Miss done on love,
Little Miss I give up,
Little Miss I’ll get tough, don’t you worry ’bout me anymore
Little Miss checkered dress,
Little Miss one big mess,
Little Miss I’ll take less when I always knew so much more
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright,
Yeah, sometimes ya gotta lose ’til ya win,
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright,
It’ll be alright again, it’ll be alright again
I’m okay, It’ll be alright again, I’m okay (okay) It’ll be alright again, I’m okay
Little Miss do your best,
Little Miss never rest,
Little Miss, be my guest, I’ll make more anytime it runs out
Little Miss you’ll go far,
Little Miss hide your scars,
Little Miss who you are is so much more than you like to talk about
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright,
Yeah, sometimes ya gotta lose ’til ya win,
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright,
It’ll be alright again, it’ll be alright again,
I’m okay, It’ll be alright again, I’m okay (okay) It’ll be alright again, I’m okay
Hold on, hold on, you are loved, are loved
Little Miss brand new start,
Little Miss do your part,
Little Miss big ole heart beats wide open, she’s ready now for love
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright,
Yeah, sometimes ya gotta lose ’til ya win,
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright,
It’ll be alright again, it’ll be alright again
I’m okay, It’ll be alright again, I’m okay (okay) It’ll be alright again, I’m okay,
It’ll be alright again

:Behind the Blogger: Day 11~ 11- a person you would love to meet.

I have a list of people that I would love to meet.  Some are local Minnesota people, other are peeps that I have meet on Twitter and gotten to know by following them and reading there blogs and would love to meet in person. Others are professionals that I look up to and follow for advice, and some are athletes.

If I have to pick just one person that I would like to meet I would have to pick Jay Quinlan. He is the original SledNeck, and ultimate Snowmobiler.  Some might have chosen a celebrity like Donald Trump, Opera or Ellen, but I'm a little more down to earth then that and would much rather meet someone real.  

Back in the day I used to know everything there was to know about any of the SledNecks, but I had Ty and grew up and my days started getting filled with Tyler and not stuff for me.  

I would love the chance to ride in the Rockie with the Legend.  I'm sure he has some awesome spots in Colorado that I have never seen before and would love see the pro ride and maybe teach me a thing or two.

Wordless Wednesday...Diesel Wants to Go Outside!

Saturday was a day of cleaning. It was so nice outside.  Diesel was sick of cleaning and wanted to go outside instead!

:Behind the Blogger: Day ~8 Short term goals for this month and why

I have a few Short Term Goals for this month! 

:Spring Cleaning: One room at a time, I have started to clean the entire house each weekend.  When I mean clean I mean clean. Like take everything down scrub, wash, dust rearrange 

The Bathroom was the first, and last weekend I did the Kitchen. Next up is the upstairs Living room.  One room at a time it will get done!

:Budget: With the Gas Price on the rise and no having to pay for Health Insurance I need to figure out a Family Budget. I need to figure out where I can cut from.  Our family has not been on a budget since 2001 when I was laid off for a year. I said I would never put us back on one.  Why should I have too, we both work. But like I said life is getting way to expensive and somethings gotta give.

:Camping Schedule: I need to make reservations for camping this year.  This is one thing we are not going to give up even though it will cost us more in Gas this is one thing our family enjoys doing together and I'm simply not willing to give it up!

:Scrapbook: I would like to get some scrapping done this month.  Get caught up on the camping and Ty's school scrapbook and start a new album from our trip to Colorado.

:Behind the Blogger: Day 6~ Favorite super hero and why.

My Favorite Super Hero is Wonder Woman.  

I'm pretty positive the main reason why is because my grandma used to have these awesome cuff bracelets.  She never wanted me to wear them.  I'm pretty sure the reason why was because I would sneak into her bedroom, get them out of her dresser along with a  tiara,go into her closet and get her white go-go boots put all of it on and climb up on her bed and wait till she would call for me from the other room and when she would walk into her bedroom I would jump off the bed cross my arms in front of me and yell "WONDER WOMAN"!  I would scare the crap out of her every time!

Wonder Woman also has many powers: 

"Her superhuman strength, flight, super-speed, super-stamina, and super-agility. She is highly proficient in hand-to-hand combat and in the art of tactical warfare. She also possesses an animal-like cunning and a natural rapport with animals, which has in the past been presented as an actual ability to communicate with the animal kingdom. She uses her Lasso of Truth, which forces those bound by it to tell the truth, a pair of indestructible bracelets, a tiara which serves as a projectile, and an invisible airplane." -from Wikipedia
:Superhuman Strength: Hello who wouldn't want to be stronger then any man!

:Flight: Much needed to keep up with Superman!

:Super-Speed: nobody can get away from her!

:Super-Stamina and Super-Agility: again, need to keep up with her "Boy-Toy" Superman. Can you imagine the sex they had! WOW!
:Hand-to-Hand Combat in the Art of Tactical Warfare: the chick could kick some butt!!!
:Animal-like Cunning and a Natural Rapport with Animals: No wonder I had no fear of animals as a child. 
:Lasso of Truth: something every Girl should have so if she thinks someone is lieing she could lasso them and make them tell the truth!
I so wished that I could fly that : Invisible Plane:

So :Wonder Woman: is my Favorite Super Hero who is yours?
