Friday FUN: Let's Get This Party Started!

Finally, I'm getting a minute to sit down at my computer and post for the party over at 5 Minutes for Mom. I am so excited about this blog party that I included one of my very favorite "party-themed" songs. (This song is really going to show my age.) Click on the link for Party Train on the side bar and enjoy! I have many more favorite party songs but I really like this one. By the way, I'm Tami. I have 4 awesome children and a wonderful husband. We live in the upstate mountains of South Carolina. I'm fairly new to blogging but I am loving every minute of it. I blog because it is a way for me to have a little adult human contact everyday and be with people who have days just like me. Also blogging is a journal of sorts for me. It helps me keep up with the little everyday things that happen in my family. These are the things that are easily forgotten but I can always come back and read my archives. My blog is just about our everyday life. So come in and look around. I hope you like what you see and decide to stick around for a while. There always seems to be new material popping up in our household.

There are many things that I love. Here are just a few. I guess I have to say my number one is reading. I love to read. I also like to scrapbook and organize. I am addicted to Food Network and American Idol. My favorite shows (that I am desperately missing right now) are Gray's Anatomy, Private Practice, and Desperate Housewives. I also love to go shopping and I can't pass up a good bargain.

Here are pictures of our family. We had a hard time trying to get everyone to cooperate for one big one so we did 2. These were on our 2007 Christmas Cards.
So I guess that's about it for now.
Introduce yourself and tell me some things about you. And DO come back and visit often. Another thing I love is having new blogger friends.

You have a beautiful family!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing your book recommendations for boys! (And I'm sorry I provided the wrong link. Thanks for taking the time to find the right page!) I will definitely check out the books you mentioned. I had never heard of the Spiderwick Chronicles. I looked them up, and they sound perfect!

it's me, Val said...

Ohmygoodness, we love the exact same shows!! We should watch them together . . . my hubby would rather not watch any of them with me except DH -- he loves that one :) Love AI, too. I actually get to see Simon Cowell on the 17th on Oprah. I still can't believe it. Watch for me! :)

Tracey said...

Hey! Just party hopping, here. Nice to meet you, and your kids are so beautiful! I'm amazed that you got all 4 in one shot looking happy. Well done!

Mrs Mac said...

Stopping by for the party. What a cute family!

Wani said...

Great pix of you and your family!
Happy Bloggin'!

Kat Olivares said...

I agree with Tracey! It's a miracle you got to shoot 4 great smiles in one sitting. I only shoot two boys, and I can't get it right. LOL.

Nice to meet you, Tami. Hope we can be friends. - Kat of Raising Boys Blog
