I saw this over at Staci's page and HAD to join in!!!

I'm Brandy!! I'm a wife, mother, daughter, sister, social worker, ameture photographer, housekeeper, taxi driver, blog designer and so much more!

I've been married to my wonderful husband since August of 2004. We have one BEAUTIFUL daugther, Jordan McKaie, who is 17months old going on 5! We just found out last week that we're expecting baby NUMBER TWO!! Due in November! We're so excited and scared at the same time!

We both work full time away from home, but have a great family and support system that helps us so much!

This is our (my) blog that I use to share the normal musings that are my life. I post here about the wonderful and not so wonderful elements of motherhood, my job, our family, and mostly pictures of the greatest joy of my life!

Lately, I've dabbled in a little bloggy design work--I'm really behind on posting my latest creations, but you can see some of my designs here. Stay tuned, because in the next week or so, I'll be posting about 4 new designs!

Okay, so in honor of this great blog party, I'd like to give away a total bloggy design!! It's a 30.00 value, and if you take a look at my designs and think you would like one, just leave a comment on THIS post and I'll have a random drawing on Friday, at the close of the blog party. I am leaving town on Friday evening, so I may not get the winner posted until Monday, but I will get it posted as soon as possible!

A few things you should know about my designs.
--I mostly use digital scrapbooking kits to build the designs, but I am open to any ideas you have!
--I only do blogger blog designs at this time. I am not equip to do typepad or wordpress.
--I aim to please!! Expect to get several proofs from me and make as many changes as you want until it's perfect FOR YOU!

If your comment does not link back to you at your blog, please leave your e mail address in the comment so that I can notify you that you are the winner.

Thanks for stopping by the party and I hope you enjoy getting to know me and my family!!

Hey! You're really creative! I would love to win one of your designs! Wow! I think I feel really lucky that I clicked on your site! Your daughter is beautiful and congratulations on baby number two! I felt a little nostalgic for a moment. My daughter was born November of 06, so it was 2 years ago this month we found out we were expecting her! :D

Happy partying!
