Welcome Blogstalkers!

You've come to the right place! On Monday, I'll be the featured blog on this website.

Oh the pressure to come up with something witty to post about today!

There's just one problem - I haven't been feeling extremely witty lately.
You see, my husband (who happens to be the smartest .NET software architect on the planet) lost his wonderful job and all the benefits that went along with it. (By "benefits" I mean my weekly trips to Target, Gymboree, Janie and Jack . . . you get the picture. Oh yeah, there were stock options, 401k match, and health insurance too.) Now *poof* all gone.

I haven't really been able to get a good night's sleep since he lost his job 3 weeks ago.
I keep waking up at night . . . repeatedly . . . thinking things like . . .
"Can a pregnant woman sell her own plasma????"
"How much money could I get for selling ad space on my bulging belly????"
"Is it tacky or brilliant to open a lemonade stand in my front yard?"

Want to know a little more about me?
My friends think I'm funny.
My husband thinks I'm awesome.
I think he's awesome too - and sometimes I write about it.
I like to laugh.
I post recipes every Wednesday on my blog.
I hate grocery shopping and emptying the dishwasher.
I scrapbook every moment of my daughter's life.
I dance when I cook.
I bake cakes.
I'm 33 years old but I feel about 15.
I serve as a city councilwoman, where I act all serious and keep the wild, crazy side a secret.

To read some of my funniest posts (or so I'm told) click on the links below.

I'm also a crazy cake baker. To see some of my masterpieces, click the links below.

I hope you liked your visit to my blog.
Come back and visit often.
Oh, the drama . . . will Lisa ever shop again?
Will the new baby be a boy or girl?
Will the city re-elect this crazy councilwoman this November?
Will having two children throw her completely over the edge?

Stay tuned for the answers to these questions and more.

I'm so old I've forgotten how old I actually am . . . I'm 34! Duh!

Kim said...

Hi There! Stopping over from Blog Stalkers. So sorry about your husbands job. I have soooo been there. Keep the faith! Something will come along!

The High Family said...

I don't know what you are talking about? You still have the "wit"!

Damn...I didn't know your followers would swell when you become the Top Blog at BSU!

Even more friends to make you feel better during these tough times!

When do you find out if it's a boy or girl??

Linda @ My Trendy Tykes said...

My doctor does an ultrasound at 24 weeks . . . 8 weeks away. When John gets a job, the first thing I'm doing (after the happy dance) is calling Ultrasona for another appointment. I'm terribly impatient!

blueviolet said...

Congrats on your feature this week! I'm so glad they do this at BSU because I hadn't seen your blog before. I like it here. :)

Dear Lisa,

You just might be my twin, except for the councilwomany stuff and being pregnant. I'm not either of those. But, I too, am about to be 34 and still feel 15. I still break out like I'm 15, read literature and watch movies from when I was 15, and in general, have no idea what I'm doing, like I did when I was 15.

I shall stalk more. You're fun.

I found your blog through a friends blog and all I can say is man you've totally nailed the many feelings and caps we women have to wear on a day to day basis. Is it any wonder we can be a little emotional at times??

So sorry to hear about your husband. This economy is going to heck in a hand basket. Keep your sense of humor it will pull you through the tough times.

Alex the Girl said...

I do the same thing when times are tough. I make a mental list of things I could possibly sell, think of holding a garage sale, and wonder if anyone would to buy the clarinet I played when I was in fifth grade.

Congrats on being the top blog! I enjoyed reading your posts.

Congrats on your Top Blog week! I look forward to reading your blog. I am especially excited to see your cakes... I am a crazy (theme) cake baker. I did a castle and a hard hat for the kids' birthdays this year!
