Chronicles of a Completely Unperfect Mom

UBP 2009 Begins!

Filed under: UBP 2009 — Mom @ 11:01 pm

Last year, the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by really helped me kick off my blogging attempts on my former blog.  Then, life intervened and I didn’t blog for a while.  Imagine my surprise when I learned that UBP 2009 was starting so soon after I decided to revive my blogging habit!

A quick introduction since there’s not a ton of content for you to spend hours browsing:

I’m Heather, mommy to Mikhaila and almost 29 weeks pregnant with her little brother, RJ.  RJ is short for Richard James Joseph, his grandfathers.  I’ve been married to their daddy, Rick, for almost 4 years now, together for 8 years next month.  With the exception of three years spent in Nebraska, I have lived in southern Wisconsin my entire life.

I’m looking forward to meeting other moms and reading about your adventures in parenthood, both this week and beyond!



  1. Great to find your blog! Best wishes with the new baby- boys are fun! I should know, I have three 🙂

  31. Doin’ the party run!!!! Glad to meet ya! Come on over to Craftola!!!!!

    It has been so enjoyable for me to be able to check out all the many new blogs and meet so many interesting people this week! So glad I am participating in the UBP this year!!

    After thinking about everyone who has stopped by to “party” here at Craftola this week, I have decided to do the drawing for my “Hand Made Giveaway” and all others who visited will also receive something from me, too. Just my way of saying “thank you for visiting”…

    Spread the word. Craftola will be drawing for my give away on Friday at 6 p.m. EST. The winner will be notified and posted here next week. All others will receive a little prize from me via email… it will be something I think everyone might use.

    Happy UBP! Cheers!!!!!

  53. Welcome back to Blogging. I would say have a glass of wine and enjoy the party….but considering the circumstances….I say have a glass of milk and enjoy!!

    My husband and I are trying for our second. We have a little girl and my husband is praying we have a little boy. Don’t get me wrong, my daughter is def. daddy’s little girl, but my husband would love a son too.

    Keep us all posted!!
