TMC welcomes Kelly, author of Mom Got Blog. Kelly is one of the most supportive bloggers I know. You’ll find her on Twitter retweeting some favorite posts, commenting on blogs and just being all around fabulous! She recently made the move to WordPress with an amazing new design, so be sure to check out her new digs and follow her…you can thank me later. Here is how she describes herself and her blog in her own words:
“Hi! I’m Kelly and I am so glad to meet you! Do you like coffee? Me too! Wine? Me too! Grab a cup/glass and a seat and let’s get to know each other…
When Heather contacted me to be the Featured Blogger, I was beyond excited! I love the Theta Mom Community or what I would call “The House That Heather Built” and am so honored that she thought of me. She has been so supportive of my blogging endeavors and I continue to learn from her business prowess. I wanted this intro to be just right and just to let you know, I am on the fifth draft!! I am really hoping that this is THE one!
Here are a few things about me:
I am madly in love with my husband; even after 18 years of marriage. There are some pet peeves that have started to surface, but not to the extent that they would be a deal breaker. He’s just too cute to have such a thing.
I love my two kids to pieces. They have brought more joy to my world than I could ever express. This still holds true, even though we are going through the “Terrible Teens.” You thought two’s were bad? Psshh. I could pull every strand of hair out of my head on some days.
I am a sucker for cheesy greeting cards and have embarrassed myself laughing so hard in the aisles of Hallmark.
Much to my family’s dismay, I love museums and I love to read everything. Every. Thing. I can spend hours in one section if it is interesting enough. They still have not caught on that this is my secret for smoking them when we play Jeopardy.
I love food! Love to eat it, cook it, bake it, and share with my family and friends. Epicurean delicacies delight all the senses and it brings me joy.
I am a sports nut, too. I love to watch and play just about any sport. My husband and I are avid cyclists and have just challenged ourselves to run our first marathon! My personal passion is speedskating; I am a nationally competitive skater that has medaled (Nationals) in both short track and long track. Returning to work full time and supporting my kids’ activities really cut into my training, so my skates have been hung up until I can find the time again. In the meantime, I am learning how to become an official on the ice, so that has kept me in touch with my skating “family” even though I am not on the start line with them.
I started my blog in June 2009 to have an outlet for my writing and to share my stories. I have not looked back. My blog features a little bit of everything. I write about family, food, and sports, not necessarily in that order! Some of my posts may share humor, some may be reflective, but they are always authentic and genuine. I wear my heart on my sleeve and it shows up in my writing too. I have also written a children’s book and a few other pieces that I hope to have published someday. I mean, if Snooki can do it, I can too!
I am really proud to be a part of this amazing, talented community of supportive folks and I have learned so much. The journey has been pretty sweet so far and I am eager to see what is around the corner. Want to take a peek with me? Great! Now, enough about me…I want to hear all about you!”
