This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Follower of the Month - Caitlin

The Follower of the Month for August is Caitlin from It's Spelled C-A-I-T-L-I-N.

Caitlin is this cutie patootie momma whose blog makes me smile when I'm having a bad day. Her son Joseph is the most adorable jack-o-lantern lookalike I've ever seen (inside joke!). Caitlin is also expecting her second child which can only mean her blog will become even more silly and will be even more photo-heavy in a few months from now.

Caitlin is also a very sweet and compassionate person, and often leaves touching comments on my blog. I am honored to have met Caitlin in bloggyville. And now I have the pleasure of introducing you all to Joseph's mom: CAITLIN!

1.What's your name?

Caitlin- and if you don't know how to spell it, just check out my blog title :)

2.Tell us a little bit about you.

I am 24 and live with my husband in Idaho. He does something with computers that I don't really understand. Software developing..? No one really knows what that means. We have a naughty little boy who will be 2 in November, and another one on the way. The fetus is sucking the life out of me, and really effecting my blogging habits- but I love it anyway. I stay at home with the kiddo, so that I can spend lots of time reading blogs on the computer. Oh yes, and raise him well.

3.When did you start blogging and why?

I started blogging almost a year ago. Initially, it was a way to record the things that I do and to post pictures for my family in Oregon to look at. Now, I just enjoy having someplace to be witty and sassy- where I can pretend that I have showered and that I am not wearing sweatpants.

4.Tell us a bit about your blog.

My blog is a mix of pictures of my kid, stories of our adventures, and the funny things that happen to me along the way. Living in Idaho, there are some funny things that happen out here in the sticks.

5.Has blogging changed you or your outlook on life at all?

I think that it has made me appreciate the little things more. Like, if Joseph is playing in the toilet, I run to get my camera so that I can blog about it, instead of getting upset.

6.Link us to 1 - 3 of your favorite posts from your own blog

Thursday's Culinary Adventure I don't know if this particular one is a favorite, per se, but my Culinary Adventures in general are a pretty fun ride.

Idaho's "Gems" Part 1 A perfect example of life in Idaho.

Miscommunication My husband and I have trouble talking at times. Which is maybe why we are having another kid.;)

7.Link us to 1 - 3 of your favorite fellow bloggers

Besides you, Ter? :)

In an attempt to keep all feelings un-hurt, I will only link to blogs that I love whose author's don't follow me. Or really know that I exist at all. Because I love all of my followers the same! (kiss! kiss!)

Mama' Losin' It


Greetings from the Jet Set

8.How did you come to be a follower of mine and why do you follow me?

Hmmm... I don't really remember. I think that I maybe found your through Jenners? (note from Ter: That sounds right - she featured me as a follower once) I started following you because I was so in awe of your strength and perseverance. I felt that I needed to see what happened next with this amazing woman!

9.What, if anything, have you gained from reading from my blog?

I have definitely learned to cherish the things in my life more. Even when Joseph makes me want to gouge my eyes out with a fork, (I've been there), your blog helps me to remember to stop and give him a hug instead.

10. Tell me the truth, you're going to brag to all your bloggy friends that you were my follower of the month, aren't you? ;)

Of course! Why else do you think I am doing this? :)


Would YOU like to be a Follower of the month next month?

Great feature. Caitlin is a dear friend and even better in person than online - and that's saying a lot!

And Joseph IS the cutest.

And after reading a little more on this blog, I have a greater appreciation of what I have. Thank you, Ter.

This was so cute. I think Caitlin's blog is hilarious and adorable...and Joseph is quite photogenic -- that new baby is going to have some competition!

And I love that I may have helped bring you two together. ; )

And you know Ter, I will be happy to be your Follower of the Month any time you want me to.
