About Me

I am the crazy mom of five boys.  Four of my five boys are on the autism spectrum. Neuro-Diversity rocks!!!  I cook, I clean, I blog, I breathe.  Yup that is about it.  If you want to catch a glimpse of our crazy world you are more than welcome but don't say I didn't warn you.

A Glimpse of a Give Away

Anyone who knows me knows I love to host a party.   I love cooking a massive amount of food, cleaning (ok maybe I don’t love the cleaning so much) and decorating my house in preparation.  I love to watch people as they come in with whatever stress has been in their day and then watch as they look around, take a deep breath of the party scented air and then slowly relax.  I love to hear the laughter as people swap stories and I love to laugh right along with them.  I love to look around the house after everyone leaves, see the empty glasses, dirty plates and drooping decorations and have that feeling of deep satisfaction that comes over me knowing that a good time was had by all.  Yup I LOVE a good party. 
Next month will be the six month birthday of this blog.  When I first started I had no idea just how much I was going to learn, how many new friends I would make, or how many old friends I would reconnect with.  Indeed I had no idea just how much I would fall in love with this new form of communication.  Maybe it’s my closet narcissism peeking out but I have decided this joyous occasion deserves a celebration!!!    I thought long and hard about how I could best turn a virtual party into a real world party short of flying everyone to my house (which though I would to do it. It’s just not feasible, or so my husband says ;).  Then it came to me.  I’ll have a fantastic giveaway to show how much I appreciate every one of you. 
So here are all the fun details.  The prize is a fantastic gift basket.  Some of the cool goodies included are the book Look Me in the Eye by John Robisson (a fantastic, fun read), a GloDowg candle (my very favorite.  Their scents last and they burn forever. Not to mention they are made by one of my favorite people in the world),  full size  Bath and Body Works Lavender Vanilla bubble bath, lotion and body spray (this will relax  you on the most stressful of days and a box of Godiva chocolates.  Yes guys I know this basket seems a bit on the feminine side but if you win you can give it to your wife, girlfriend, sister or momma and I PROMISE you that you will be golden for at least a week ;-)
How do I win this amazing gift basket you may ask?  It’s simple.  Just leave a comment every time you visit my blog over the next month.  Every comment you leave I will enter your name into the drawing basket.  On August 28th, exactly six months to the day that I started my blog, I will draw a random name and announce it.  The more times you comment the more times you will be entered, the more chances you have to win.  Easy as pie!!!  Just to be clear the comments have to be left on my blog.  Although I love all the comments on Facebook and Twitter only the ones on the blog itself will be counted.  To comment on the blog is easy.  Just type your comment in the post a comment box and then click which profile you wish to post under in the “Comment as” box.
I am so excited about our upcoming celebration.   I’m already picking out my party dress ;-)  Have a great day friends.-Kristine

Well I wish we could party together in person :( I can't believe your lil baby is going to be 6 months already... where does the time go? I love the window you've created so we can peak inside your life. I can't wait to see what the next 6 months bring.
