Dishing It with Serenity Now.......

totally by accident yesterday- or is it on accident?? aaahh mommy brain-in my anticipation for the new season of Glee

I met a fellow Gleek who's having her very first blog party today


Gotta love a party!! What a fun way to get to know other bloggers, meet some new friends and find some great blogs to read!!! Amanda will be partying monthly over at Serenity Now and I'm joining in today! This first month is kind of a get to know everyone and why they started blogging. Here's my why.......

~How long have you been blogging?
I started blogging in November of 2008.

~Why did you start blogging?
I was lucky to get chosen to participate in the YCMT Thrifty Under Fifty Challenge. I started this blog to show the gifts I made for the challenge.

~Tell me about your blog's title. Why did you choose it?
I chose the title because we have 7 people in our family so we're 7 all together. I know-very original, but I've since read it's good to have a number to start your blog title so you show up first in ABC order-yeah, I knew that.

~What do you blog about?
I blog about our family, my kids and my sewing and craft projects.

~What is your favorite thing about blogging?
My favorite thing about blogging is how much bloggers share with each other-information, tutorials, advice, the list goes on and on. I also love that blogging gives me a bit of adult conversation-there are days when my reading my comments is the only adult interaction I have-and boy, do I need it!!

~If you had to choose one famous person to become your blog's next devoted reader, who would you pick?
I'm not sure on this one-I have some great followers now.

I barely have time to blog with 1 kid - I can't imagine 5!!! Just today I had the conversation with my husband - should we only have 1 kid or should we have 4? His reply, "What's wrong with 3?" Ha!

Nice to meet you at this party :)

Hi, Dawn!! I took a peek at your kids in the photo...such cuties. :) I'm also a huge fan of the "adult conversation" I've found through blogging. It's a stress reliever for me! Thanks so much for stopping by to link up. I hope you're having a good time "mingling." :)

Hi Dawn!

Stopping by from Amanda's party =)

I thought my life was crazy with 3, I can only image what it's like with 5 =) And I collect, er hoard, fabric and pretty notions too. My DS told me the other day I could open a store...
