Well, I am just waaaaay out of the loop this year, because the Ultimate Blog Party at 5 Minutes for Mom started today, and I didn't even realize it until just now. Which means that I'm already somewhere around 600 billion on the Mr. Linky list for family friendly blogs (sigh).
Anyway, welcome to Quirky is a Compliment, blog partiers! Feel free to let your inner-quirk run amok here...Heaven knows that I do. As a matter of fact, that where the title came from...my very own mother described me as quirky one day, and while I was trying to decide whether or not to be insulted, she went on to explain that she meant the unique things that each of us bring to the table, and that I should take it as a compliment. So I do, and here I am.
Currently I'm 28, married, no kids, 4 cats (these are my children...they just happen to all be of the Siamese persuasion). I live in beautiful Knoxville TN, in the heart of the Smokies. (If you want to know more random stuff about me, see the 100 things link. If you want to know more about life in Tennessee, see Tennessee Living). The blog is a bit of a mixed bag- a few stories, a few DIY projects, a few daily accounts, a few funny things, a few serious things, even a recipe or two.
You never know what you're going to get, but chances are it will be quirky. But enough about me. Tell me about you. I'm a bit of a blog addict, and am looking for some new blogs to add to my daily reading collection. Leave a comment with your blog address and I'll come check you out. Anyway, thanks for coming to the blog party!
Now for that prize part (which I have a bajillion to 1 chance of actually winning, but what can I say, hope springs eternal anyway).
It was incredibly hard to choose, but I finally narrowed my favorites down to:
- Spanish Language Learning Software from Peanut ButterProvided by: Life is Sweet (because I've only had learning Spanish on my to-do list for a bazillion years)- USC 27
- Glass and stone earring and necklace setProvided by: Mrs. CPA (I love love love this necklace and earring set! It's sooo pretty and would look perfect with just about everything!)- USC 14
- a pair of ChicBud Earphones with Swarovski Crystals Provided by: The IE Mommy (I didn't even know such things existed, but now that I do, I must have them! I use my earbuds EVERYWHERE! Who knew that I could look chic while doing it?)- 15
And if my top three picks are already chosen (boooo!), I’d still love any of the following (in order of preference): 19,21,22,26, USC 47, USC 56, 91, USC 40, USC 44, or 14. You guys are awesome!
