Put your high heels on and come join the party

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

5 minutes for mom is holding a blog carnival in the way of an ultimate blog party. Its my first party with 5 minutes for mom and I'm very excited to be here.

OK, so whatcha wearin? Im in my PJ's, but thats ok, right? In blogland anything goes, right? Help yourself to a cupcake and let me introduce myself.

I'm Estee. Im a mother to two wonderful boys, the real sunshine of my life. I'm busy to-ing and fro-ing all day long on school runs, grocery shops and gym work outs. I'm married to a lovely man, and fall in love more each day. We met in our teens, but didn't really fall in love until our twenties. We're very proud of the family we have built.

When I'm not filling my days running in the fast lane, I love to knit, crochet and sew. All of which are self taught, with a slight exception to sewing. A couple of years ago, I took a course at the London College of Fashion in Pattern Adaption. I absolutely loved it, even though I'm still intimidated by the invisible zip!

I've been blogging for 5 years now. Read my blogaversary story here.

******And, don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY******

Thanks for stopping by A Little Tipsy. I hope to learn to knit and crochet soon, then I won't have to buy all those cute beanies and headbands.

I have always wished I could sew but I think I'mmma too spastic and would sew myself to something.
Thanks for coming by my blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. (5 Vinez Monkeys)

You asked about homeschooling them - well, the distractions do come, but since we're at home, we can always put the books away for awhile and get back to work later. It's really worked well for us, and I don't have to worry about the "politics" of public schools.

Hope you win a great prize in the UBP, and that you'll consider stopping by again! :)
